[ABOUT NUDITY] but still safe to read...

Was having lunch today with my friend Katrina...

we were talking about writing sales letters.

Long story short, because it took a lot of twists and turns...

we got to the point where we were talking about how long it should take to write a sales letter...and, I said about an hour (could have been the drinks talking).

So, she bet me I couldn't write a sales letter in an hour.

We bet lunch...

the bet was on.

Several years ago, I came up with an idea for some glasses...she brought that up and challenged me to write a letter for them before we were finished with lunch.

So, this sales letter took me 21 minutes and 49 seconds.

Critique it...rip it apart...

Would it interest you? Would you buy?

Should I start shopping for another Range Rover? Should I upgrade my plane?

No, there are no links because I'm not selling these right now.

Amazing new Invention Just Released:

"Stop And Read This If You've Ever Been Frustrated By Those LIttle Blurry Spots That Cover Up Nudity On T.V."

...and discover how you can enjoy watching shows where even if nudity is blurred out, you'll never see the blurry spot again.

As it happened...

a naked guy and gal were doing a challenge on a T.V. show I was watching the other day...

they had to spend a few days naked in some crazy outdoor place with wild animals - all while facing possible hunger and maybe thirsting to death.

The problem was, every time there was something I thought would be good to see, it was blurred out with one of those annoying little blurry spots.

Still, there I was sitting on the edge of the couch waiting for the editing crew to forget to add that tiny fuzzy blur if only for a brief moment.

There weren't any mistakes. The editors were good. Too good for my liking and enjoyment.

They were teasing me with nudity, then blurring it out.

If you're like me, this is frustrating.

Being someone that questions a lot of things (probably like you), I began to wonder ... could I figure out a way to get around this frustrating problem?

Being an inventor, and having been told I'm a damn good one (thanks mom), I decided to look into it.

A couple of sleepless nights later, and several failed attempts (too many to mention), I struck gold - I discovered the secret to end those horrible little blurs -

a pair of specially designed eyeglasses.

Now, no longer would I have to see those pitiful little blurs...

and now, no longer would my mind be held hostage by wondering what may be hidden beneath.

These are not just normal everyday eyeglasses, these are eyeglasses that use non-patented technology. (A patent is expensive and quite frankly, right now I don't have the funding to pursue one, but it turns out that works to your advantage as you'll soon see as you continue reading).

However, I had another big problem.

The prototype I developed turned out to be very expensive to mass-produce. I would have to pay for molds and tooling and factory workers to produce these - probably would need to have them manufactured in China.

All the tariffs and shipping would force me to charge a fortune. And since I knew this product would be in huge demand, it left me feeling like I
had failed because there was no way I could offer it and still cover my expenses to produce it.

That's when another idea hit me.

Why don't I send you a kit that allows you to easily assemble your own pair of these special glasses to end seeing those little frustrating blurs?

To make it easy, we provide you with the tools.

In our tests, it only took five minutes for somebody with very little mechanical skill to start using these glasses.

Just imagine the joy you'll have when watching those types of shows and no longer having to see those little agonizing blurs...

and just imagine what your family will think when you're sitting there on the couch with your "special self-assembled" eyeglasses that allow you to enjoy the show without those little pestering blurs while they're sitting there trying to squint their eyes to see what's hidden.

Also just imagine that in just a few days you can experience the exhilaration and excitement of watching those shows without having to anxiously hope for a mistake by the editing crew.

So here's my offer that I think you'd be crazy not to accept...

For just $20 I'll ship you the kit to put these things together. I'll even include postage to anywhere in the world and I'll send a special thank you note just for trying these. But, as a special bonus for ordering my first run, I'll give you the opportunity to get 50% off your order. You'll only pay $10 with postage still included.

Does that sound fair?

Ok great, I knew you'd jump at this.

Here's what to do next.

    $20? Too expensive. If it were, I don't know, say $19.99, I'd be in. I hate them little buggers enough to pay $9.99 on a $19.99 product. But not a penny more!

    Definitely held my attention! Love it.

    Are your sales letters usually this short or it was due to it being a challenge?

    For just $20 I'll ship you the kit to put these things together. I'll even include postage to anywhere in the world and I'll send a special thank you note just for trying these. But, as a special bonus for ordering my first run, I'll give you the opportunity to get 50% off your order. You'll only pay $10 with postage still included.
    Could this part have been a bit longer? To tease out the benefit... the advantage of them buying a $20 glasses for $10.

    Also found it interesting that the glasses was presented as having only one feature --uncover blurred lines-- and then one benefit --you get to see naked people. I guess it subconsciously appeals to man's hidden voyeurism.

    And oh, btw, I'm buying a pair

    @DABK - I see I'm dealing with a tough crowd here tonight. Haha. But wait, what if I threw in something free that goes with the glasses and makes them 10x better? And gave it to everyone that ordered the first 100 pairs?

    @Charmingcapital13 - I personally like short letters better. One benefit, one feature, one price, one add-on.

    Everyone is different in their approach.

    I could spruce the letter up by adding subheads...

    each subhead would just be the first sentence...and would lead into the paragraph.

    I like to do letters where all someone has to do is read the headline, then all the subheads, then the p.s., and get the whole idea of what I'm selling. So many people are just scanners.

    The opportunity to get 50% off their order of course is by them sharing the offer. If I'm going to give a discount, I expect the buyer to give me something in return. Plus, it's the quickest and cheapest way to spread the word.

    I could go into how I discovered this secret from some research that was being done by a university...and how they stumbled on this after researching something else. Could be something I might test...would have to ask myself if people really care how I came up with the idea. Maybe it would add some proof.

    Would probably test the pre-headline.

    I could also add a couple of testimonials (at least 3).

    Could also add some "as seen on" Fox, NBC, ABC, etc,...and they'd all be true...

    because I'd throw together a little ad, then pay one of those companies that rotates ads on different sites all over the internet. I'd find out where all they rotate them, then pick the most prestigious ones and use them as proof. Yeah, it's what often happens.

    So many ways to market something.

    You can get a place that mixes ingredients that go into vitamins, health supplements, etc., and for about 2 bucks you can have your own white label thing.

    Same thing with cosmetics. You can have that white-labeled for less than 2 bucks a tube, or jar, or roll on...

    You just take one of the ingredients, research it and come up with something about it that not too many are aware of, and blast it out as some "new" thing.

    So, if you can't tell, I get a little cynical at a lot of the marketing out there.

    This all leads me to this point. I just like to talk to people like I'm an everyday gal or guy that invented something...or discovered something...and I'm just talking to them like we're having a simple conversation.

    All these so-called experts tell you how you got to do this and you got to do that...

    pretty sure we've all seen products that have done spectacular, even with all the rules broken.

    Anyways, that's my spiel for today and just some random thoughts.

    Thanks for the comments, and thanks for reading

      Never thought of things this way. I know very little about internet marketing... found this insightful.

      About the length of the letter, what if it was for a client... wouldn't it depend on the niche you're writing for?

      The opportunity to get 50% off their order of course is by them sharing the offer. If I'm going to give a discount, I expect the buyer to give me something in return. Plus, it's the quickest and cheapest way to spread the word.
      How does this work? Won't they have to leave the order page to share it? And I suppose you could lose the prospect, no?

        There's software that lets the buyer do this right on the checkout page. They get their own link that they can share and once they've shared it they get a discount.

        That's actually a very intelligent question though...one most people probably wouldn't have thought of!

    marketing 101




    Let me know when the 'glasses' are released - I think I'll get into the secondary resale market for them. I'm sure you can sell a LOT of 'blur resolvers'....but my guess is the mystery of the 'blur' is more entertaining in the end than endless views of girl and boy 'bits'. So after a while (or after the spouse finds the glasses) those products will be ripe for reselling....


    I've always wondered - who is in charge of putting the 'blurs' in just the right places??? How do you advertise or apply for such a 'job'?

    @ Kay King - from what I've been told, these are computer-generated. The program automatically blurs certain areas...kind of like AI I guess. I'm saying this but really have no idea if that's true because I haven't the slightest clue.

    The whole idea of "hey honey, I didn't know you wore glasses" would be interesting.

    Or, "you're acting a lot different now that you wear glasses"

    "It's improved our marriage"

    "Bob is different lately"

    Could probably end some marriages, or on the other hand, make them better. Who knows?

    Sounds like the telekinetic BACK OFF flash cards I deploy to quit creeps sneakin' a look at my bunnies on the beach.

    "We circled her several times to savor the dinkiness, but those animated flash cards protected her modesty like an animated bra fashioned by Tony Stark himself!"

    Hey but my strawbs still gaht burned, so now I needin' cerebral aids to synch my anti-view flash straps with sum kinda coolin' spray-on yogurt device.

      Those were 21 minutes well spent, definitely got my curiosity and read the whole thing intrigued about what would come next.

      You can start shopping for a new car, although not a Range Rover, I am afraid; since you have a lot of competition with many "shows" that are already showing people naked without any blurred spots.

        You may be right. Although, I think the curiosity factor is there...plus the lure of the "forbidden" would be a draw

    Nice sales letter , try to put pricing in 19.99 or 19.97 format. A study shows they sell more rather than whole figure.
