Re: I freeze, justy the thought of cold calling...

Re: Why Did You Start Copywriting?

Reminds me of this:

YouTube - Tiddy Bear - Funny Infomercial

How all of these actors and the VO artist got through this thing without cracking up laughing, I'll never know.

Re: Ever Deal With An Obnoxious Client?

Re: WHY Does This Website Convert?

I agree with the consensus. It works because it's cheap and there's a sucker born every minute.

It did remind me of this:

Re: Sales Page missing that 'POP'

This is a product selling a system that ends writer's block to internet marketers, correct? Now, I'm by no means an expert, and IM is not really my preferred niche, but here's my feedback: the whole...

Re: Email Autoresponder copywriter Required(Ghost Writer) [30+ emails]

So, you want someone to write a series of 30+ emails in two different niches on the cheap?

Re: Oh my god...this copy blows

I have to agree with the others. I like your copy. It's very authentic sounding. It does need to lose some weight (tighten it up a bit, because it meanders a lot in the beginning). It appears to be a...

Re: Calling All Female IM'ers, Help... or males :-)

The case of celebrity magazines like Us and People is different, because they aren't selling a product per se. Sure, they're selling magazines, but that's not the same thing. They don't have to get...

Re: 2 videos about Joe Sugarman's copywriting

Thanks for the heads up. I'm lucky enough to live near a library that keeps all their old periodicals in hardbound volumes. They've got stuff going all the way back to the 1920s. I'll have to have a...

Change guru's to gurus. Apostrophe s is for possessives unless you're talking about a contraction of 'is'. Plural possessive is s followed by an apostrophe.

Re: My first launch and salesletter , please give me your feedback

I agree about the headline. It's way too wordy and doesn't flow well. It made me tired just reading it. The reader probably has no idea who this Lacatus guy is, or why they should care. It would be...
