Re: Is an image search website legal?

I was thinking of sites like Compfight (Compfight / A Flickr Search Tool (http://compfight.com/)) - which generates search results based on pictures from Flickr but specifies the attribution...

Re: Is an image search website legal?

I don't think there are clearly defined laws to an image search website since it's such a rare and unique situation, but I've seen some pretty prominent sites that link to Flickr images without any...

Re: What's Better for Posting Articles - Squidoo, Hubpages or Ezine Articles?

I think it's difficult to generate traffic from Squidoo and Hubpages unless you're writing in a popular niche or the article gets featured somehow. Out of the two, I prefer Squidoo over Hubpages...

Re: Where do you find French writers?

Heh heh, as soon as I hit 'submit', I realized that I was asking for that punchline. ;)

Never thought about asking the online customer service before. I'll give it a go - thanks!

Where do you find French writers?

Does anyone know some sites where I can hire French freelancers for writing and/or translating? I tried a few of my usual freelancing sites, but I think it's targeted mostly towards English speakers,...

Re: Spend Too Much Time On The Internet?

I spend way too much time on the Internet and most of the time I don't even get paid to do it! It's funny how quickly time passes when you're just surfing the net. :D

It's interesting that so many...

Re: Does a 100-page Ebook too long?

For most topics, a 100-page ebook is actually not that long. Just make sure it's not 100 page of text. Put some pictures and diagrams if possible.

If you're worried there's too much content, it...

Re: Can Anyone Suggest A Better Headline?

I like your headline, OP. It makes you think. Very philosophical of you. :p

My suggestion is "My headline is better than your headline, nyah nyah!"

Re: Headline critique

Good effort, but the headline seems a bit packed. It's like you tried to squeeze too many selling points into the headline, resulting in the law of diminishing returns. You could afford to lose a few...

Re: Fiction recommendations?

I second The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern! Just finished this a week ago, and it's still lingering in my thoughts. The story had just the right amounts of 'dark' and 'whimsical' to make it a...

Re: How to Overcome Negative Online Reviews?

Don't buy positive reviews to compensate this problem. Negative feedback can be overlooked, but an uncredible reputation is almost impossible to overcome.

Have you tried encouraging more of your...

Re: To Email, Or Not To Email....

I often run into this problem myself, but I figure it never hurts to try. It really depends on the content of your mail, as long as it doesn't sound too spammy.

Also think of it from the company's...

Re: How to you state an unbelievable claim

I would use strong & decisive words throughout the copy - 'confident', 'experience', 'qualified', just to name a few. Let your readers know that you do know what you're talking about, and that you do...

Re: Please give me an honest critique....

On the first page - as I'm reading the text, I find that my eye is always drawn to the green balloons on the right. They stand out way too much compared to the text, and the spots of colour distract...

Re: 5 Email Copy Tips/Rules that you should keep in mind.

Regarding point #5, I'd also like to add - don't get too fancy with the HTML in your emails. Simplicity and substance wins over style any day. Keep in mind that not everyone uses the same e-mail...

Re: Are copywriters born... or are they made?

If the elite copywriters are born, it might make many of us feel very discouraged!

I'm in the school of thought that practice makes perfect. Experience can compensate for any insufficiencies in...

Re: Critiques From A Pre-Sales Page made by 15 Years Old Copywriter, Who doesn't Speak English Fluen

I have a similar sentiment as the above poster, but my advice is to try practicing in your primary language first. English wasn't my first language either, and I didn't even attempt to write a sales...

Re: First Attempt - Critics Welcome

I would also like to see the price in the offer. Seeing a concrete price (or even a range of prices) adds a sense of credibility to your pitch.

Speaking of prices, I would personally put a space...

Re: Ellipses...Best Practices?

Ellipses can convey so many meanings for different people. Is the writer trying to be contemplative? Or is the writer simply uncertain about the message? On one hand, it makes the reader think about...

Re: Really good (swipeable) opening

Hmm.

I understand the theoretical use of the ellipses in the revision, but for some reason it doesn't read as strongly as the original version. It takes away a bit of the cohesion, as if my mind...

English isn't my first language either, so I understand where you are coming from.

It's not just a matter of knowing the words. It's about knowing how to use them well. A dictionary knows a lot of...

Re: Really good (swipeable) opening

This is a very strong opening. My only gripe is the final word, which doesn't seem as impactful as the rest of the description, like a tiny stagger to the momentum of the piece. I'm not sure what...
