Alternative Health Supplement Copywriters Who Teach?

8 replies
Anybody know of alternative health supplement copywriters who write magalogs, slim jims, digests, and tabloids for major mailers and who also still teach copywriting these days?

    Carline Anglade Cole has her control magalogs on her website.

    She put on a training for copywriters
    and, if I recall correctly, recorded it.

    She may have that recording available on her site,
    or just email her.

    She was taught by Clayton Makepeace.

    Best,
    Ewen

    P.S. Just remembered Doberman Dan went along to it.

      Too funny Ewen, I was going to mention her as well, I asked her back in 2009 or so, if she still was teaching copy cubs and she said she wasn't.

      If I remember right, she gave me a few names to contact back then... Jason I'll try and dig that email up and send you who she recommended. It was also for alt health... and one of the guys she recommended... his name is slipping my mind... but I know he teaches and hires junior writers also.

    Thanks Shawn

    Yeah Ewen, I have all of Carline's stuff.

    She rocks.

    She doesn't seem to have the patience for taking on cubs or coaching students anymore. (And I don't blame her.)

      Yeah, I asked her way back in 2009 because I knew of her and Parris from Clayton Makepeace... and knew she did a lot of health stuff. But she said she didn't back then either.

      But yeah, I'll find that email she sent, if I remember right, she gave me some names.

      Jason, have you contacted Steve Wexler, maybe he has someone on his team that may be able to give you some direction?

        It's been a few years since I talked with Steve by email and he was not looking to do any form of mentoring. Just too busy and didn't want to have to coach someone up to get them to deliver a project done right the first time. Of course, that was then... feel free to contact him and maybe he's had a change of heart about mentoring.

        Jason, if it was me I'd approach someone writing alt health supplement copy and ask them if they'd privately mentor you. Wouldn't be cheap but that would probably be one of the quicker ways to learn the ins and outs of the niche.

          Thanks Mike.

          I guess that brings up the question:

          Who's writing alt health supplement packages for the major mailers right now? And which of them can even be reached by a mere mortal such as myself?
