Raydal ... Thank you so much!

7 replies
I've never heard of Raydal before last week. I put up a post here because I wanted to buy a video course on how to learn copy writing. Raydal got in touch. He didn't try to sell me anything, but gave me some good advice.

I've been stressing out this week because I want to learn the foundations of copy writing the correct way so I can save myself lots of trouble in the future. I just came across a video on Youtube by Raydal:

The name Raydal sparked in my head and I though "this is the dude from the warrior forum". I watched it the first time, taking no interest, but he came across with so much authority that I had to re-watch it and take notes of the books he recommended.

As a result of this video I have just spent £259 on Amazon. One of the books were £199!! But I trust his judgment and what he's talking about makes sense.

I hope others in my situation who are starting out find that video useful. I want to personally thank Randal.

On another note Randal, you should provide a link to your site with Amazon links. You could have made a profit from my orders :p

    I remember seeing that video not too long ago (last summer?). It made me go out and get that book right away (Robert Collier Letter Book).

    Unfortunately, I'm only half-way through. But I got the point, and I'm working through the "basics".

    The video is inspiring.

    Yes, that video was inspired by a big IM launch that was
    going on at the time and many people were raving about
    the 'breakthrough' ideas they got from the videos.

    I had to smile to myself when I knew the source of all
    these great marketing wisdom.

    I never thought about using an amazon affiliate link.
    Not a bad idea.
