✔✔ For a Hundred Bucks I'll rewrite your copy and CONTRACT-KILL your noisy neighbors. ✔✔
Not really. But its amazing what some people expect a copywriter to do. All we do is play with words - words that sell.
Look, don't get me wrong - I like to write. Its what I do. All day long. But I'm not a masochist or a whack-job. You can't expect to pay me a busboy's wage to work my magic on your copy. It takes a bit of time and thought you know - motivating people to part with their money is an art-form. (Some say its part of the Black Arts.)
So what have you got for me? You want me to re-rewrite something or start from scratch? A hundred bucks basically will get you a page of killer sales copy – a pretty long page if that's what you want. Personally I'm not too keen on long sales copy. Not unless it keeps me riveted – and it needs to be a pretty good yarn or a compelling offer to do that. You gotta lot of stuff to be written? Run it past me and we'll haggle.
Of course you could always opt for the old “Long copy broken up with “Buy Now” buttons” - that works. In fact if your prospect doesn't read past the first button you know you're on a winner. (And you can easily track that).
But sometimes it takes more than that doesn't it? Your reader is going “I quite like the sound of this but I'm not sure”. And he (or she) reads on. Until he gets to the end and his doubts are allayed and he hits that last “Buy Now” button.
Copywriting is a funny gig. Personally I find it hard to write copy for stuff I would never buy myself. Doesn't necessarily mean I won't take the job – hey I gonna eat too. But I really don't like promoting stuff that I feel uncomfortable with. “Like what?” you ask. Well ....”Penis Enlargement” - there's one right there. That's a flat out “No thanks...pass”. “Water 4 Gas” is another – that's a real con in my book and I don't want any part of it.
So coming back to it. I might be a scribbler for hire but I have certain standards. And that includes No Contract-Killing.
For a hundred bucks I'll write you some copy that resonates with your readers – that reaches out and grabs them by the...no I'd better not say that...that reaches out and compels them to take action or spend money. But to do it properly you've got to give me a proper brief – give me the lowdown on your product or service so that I can properly understand it and get what you're trying to do.
You wanna know more? Wanna see some stuff I've already written? Hey, no problem. PM me and I'll whizz it right over. Or are you ready to rock and roll right now? Cool. Let's get started. Go here to my rude blog and scroll down to the PayPal button. I'm a verified PayPal Merchant. No worries. After you've done that, PM me and I'll give you my main gmail a/c to send your brief to.
Oh yeah...Guarantees. I stand by my work. My reputation is vitally important to me. If you're not happy, I'm not happy. If we can't work it out to mutual satisfaction I'll refund your monies toot sweet. (BTW why do lawyers talk about “monies” rather than “money” - never did get an answer to that).

I know they say you get what you pay for - but Mal really overdelivers. He started helping me out from the first email I sent to him - before I sent over a dime. I hopped on this WSO because just his feedback is worth gold.
It's Saturday morning and he just responded to an email I sent. It's Saturday!!! I really didn't expect to hear anything until Monday.
This guy is gonna give you what you want plus more.
