Re: So annoying...

Actually, it's not an emotion at all. It's a frame of mind that can be greatly affected by your emotions.

Re: So annoying...

All new business-starters, new learners have the same situation. High motivation at the beginning, then frustrated. The successful ones are the ones who can overcome the frustration.

Re: Another critique - some practice

I don't believe it is possible in the English language to propel a career in to something else. This doesn't make sense because the prepositions are off.

In addition, "overdrive" is a vague...

Re: Those who know copy...

OK Mike,
It's looks like you're making improvements with every draft you write. Good job.

I think you're still focusing a little too much on using “impactful words, phrases, and cliches”...

Re: Niche markets -

B2B is great. I made $100,000 from selling a niche software tool. I found out about the niche from my day job. To be honest I should have charged more. Then I would have made $250,000.


So many...

Perhaps, cool your jets for a minute or two.

Mike,

You're excited. Enthused. You found something RECENTLY which sparks you, resonates and you want to run up the mountain just as fast as you can. This is good.

It gives you drive....

Re: Those who know copy...

Well Mike,

I think your new copy is already much better than what you had up a couple days ago. So I'd say you're at least moving in the right direction. And that's a good thing (although I just...

Re: Those who know copy...

Michael,

Habits are hard to break.

I'm not sure you know yet what a headline is and what a warmup to a headline is.

Because you are still doing what I criticized before.

You've received some good advice.

I have a couple of questions, and an observation to make. First, my observation based on your WF posts the last few weeks.

Re: Those who know copy...

Hi Michael,

Well, I would not hire you from this sales page. You are way too long-winded. You are NOT focused on the reader. Instead you come across as self-conscious, preening and awkward.

Yes, it can be nerve wracking to put yourself out there and have strangers on the internet pass judgement on your creation. But that's also one way how we grow and get better. So, I'll offer you my...

RE: Should I just keep my day job?

Yes you are so right.. action is everything as I'm already seeing in my results. The main thing I've realized is stay away from paid anything at least until I'm in clear light of making money.

Phone scripts are written by copywriters. When I worked at SCI, I had the opportunity to write against many control scripts which, at that time, were selling millions of dollars of products. I also...

Re: In person events for networking

When going to local events I would focus on collecting cards and not just forcing everyone to take yours.

Then, shortly after the event, send them an email and say "We met at the blah blah event."...

Yes, IMO you will almost always get more from people you meet in person than just online. Keep in mind you need to give as well.

You have a mind of an eagle. You take each fall as a lesson and use it as experience against the winds. Your good post completes with teachings, and details. I like it. Thank you Copylifemike :)
