Re: Probably the BEST product review I've EVER read

Yea, and we could nitpick all the fitness copy out there that was obviously written by lard asses.

It doesn't matter if it's factually off a bit off...as long as it sells.

Re: Probably the BEST product review I've EVER read

I was wondering when somebody would hate on it.

The reading level is way above the 3rd grade too. A lot of $10-dollar words that might confuse people.:smilies_rolleyes:

But so what. It's...

Re: A Naughty Way To Get A Targeted Mailing List --- For Free

If your WSO is the rubric for good copy, I'd say the skill-set doesn't transfer too well.

I'm delighted that someone's profiting off my insights.:cool:

Re: Gary Bencivenga --- I'm not impressed!

Well, unless you're privy to Gary's financials we don't know how well it's converting...but let's assume it's doing well.

In any case, without running a spit test...it's hard to argue one way or...

My way "would work a lot worse"? Lol. I may be over-educated, but that's just plain 'ol bad English.

Re: Gary Bencivenga --- I'm not impressed!

Done. And done.

I took another (more thorough) look at the olive oil sales page. I was a bit harsh. He does some things masterfully. For example, using the various news excerpts and studies to...

Re: Gary Bencivenga --- I'm not impressed!

I do appreciate your sincere affirmations...

Let's see if I can ease those doubts of yours though.

Lol. I knew I would get some serious hate for this thread.

Contrary to what several of you were ranting about, I actually liked the fact his copy was low key and hype-free. That's not my problem...

Re: Gary Bencivenga --- I'm not impressed!

No, that was one of Gary's clients, not his personal business.

I think giving away samples is a great way to build brand awareness and a good long-run play for getting clients.

Re: Gary Bencivenga --- I'm not impressed!

If I gave my clients products away like that olive oil offer, I'm pretty sure I'd be beating 9/10 controls too (at least ones actually asking prospects to do something).:D

Gary Bencivenga --- I'm not impressed!

That's a borderline sacrilegious headline...I know.

Re: Best Way to Approach ClickBank Clients?

I wasn't offended by the term. It's just I'm not planning to shoot out emails with my begging bowl out. It's a value proposition (and I'd ask for a healthy fee mainly on the back-end).
