Ok, so far I’ve given you quite a few copywriting tips.

In fact the other categories are looking pretty skinny compared to the tips category.

So today I thought I’d try to start swinging my posts into some of the other categories.

Now what if I told you that you could get copywriting salesletters written by A-level copywriters delivered to your inbox everyday for free…you probably wouldn’t believe me.

But you can.

And here’s how.

There’s a site called “The Douglas Report”

And everyday he sends you a new e-letter loaded with information.

But what really makes his e-letter stand out is the ads that are featured in them.

They’re written by some of todays top grossing copywriters.

And their ads can be yours to create your own swipe file with.

I’ve done this myself and I’ve got over 100 ads in my personal file just from this one e-letter.

I should also mention that these ads come usually at the top of the e-letter. When you click on the link you’re taken to the full ad.

I use the ads featured in his e-letters to study and get new ideas and approaches.

You can do the same as well.

Or maybe you’ll use them for something else…doesn’t really matter.

It’s a top notch resource to have.

Websites within the top 5 spots in search results receive the most traffic and the most sales. What do they know that you don’t know? Here’s a niffty way to find out

Here’s a nifty little tool.

If you’re using S.E.O. as a way to generate traffic to your site then this tool can help you see the exact words your competition is currently using to beat you in the rankings.

You just type in the site’s name that you want to see the keywords for and you’ll receive a set of reports letting you know what exact words that people are typing in to find that site.

For a marketer this is pure gold.

You can easily identify your competitors strengths and weaknesses.

You competition is armed with tools of the trade to make sure they are in line to get the sale.

So why not arm yourself with those tools as well.

Oh, and one last thing.

There aren’t too many people who actually know about this tool yet, however in time I suspect that it will become very popular. So don’t wait too long before trying it out because once it gets in the hands of your competition you’ll be playing catch up all over again.

Is this the worlds longest novel?

Have you ever wished that you could write a novel, or some sort of story that would have people glued to every page filled with anticipation?

I have.

However, I could never find myself able to sit down long enough to go through the writing portion of the book.

Ideas, yeah..I can produce them like an assembly line worker produces cars.

And yet, I haven’t been able to come anywhere close to producing any type of book or story for that matter that would be worthy of reading by myself.

It’s a pretty tough thing to do.

Although, it might have just gotten a little easier.

There is an interesting project going on that will let you add your creative ideas to an ongoing storyline that’s being written.

It’s a fantastic idea.

You simply drop off a few ideas and then you watch as the magic begins.

The writer takes what you have written and then begins to weave in your thoughts and ideas into the heart of the storyline.

Family tragedy, health problems, success…you name it…it will appear within the storyline.

And that’s it.

-You’re instantly free from writers block…

-You’re instantly free from staring at a blank computer screen…

-You’re instantly free from staring at a blank piece of paper…

And just like that you’ve contributed to a storyline that could be turned into a nice work of art.

The sky is the limit.

Here is how you can take part in in what could possibly be the worlds longest novel.

Social proof – a copywriters secret weapon

Here’s a blog/website that I just recently came across.

It doesn’t focusing on copywriting….but it still contains a few gems about getting testimonials that can help you with creating results getting copy.

I was visiting Michael Fortin’s website when I saw a review for speed copy secrets. (fastfoodcopywriting is Roberts name for the product. Speed copy secrets is Michaels redirect. You know how it works online so don’t complain. I’m not an affiliate by the way)

Michaels review was that he recommended the product.

For example…If you had a product you were selling and you needed to write a salesletter really fast…then this product could help you do that.

I haven’t purchased the product myself..so I can’t say just how good it is.

Although, I am a copywritng junkie…so I just my check it out sometime this week.

If I do..I’ll let you know what I find.

Anyhow….

I had never heard of Robert so I decided to check out his website/blog

Here’s what I found.

Robert does have some really useful content.

Since I design websites as well I found his entire site helpful.

But, for you…from a copwriting aspect.

Here’s what I thought would be of use to you.

He has a post about testimonials and how you can get them.

I think you should check it out.

Let me know what you think.

One copywriting site that deserves a visit from you as soon as possible

First up….

A quick post for a copywriting website that if you don’t currently have listed in your blog roll then you should.

First, before I give you the name… I must admit something.

I didn’t come across this website until a little over two years ago.

Not because I wasn’t looking for new copywriters to learn from….

Because I certainly was…

But because my mind was being filled to brim with copywriting knowledge…and I just couldn’t add anything else at that time. With piles and piles of books standing a full foot off of my desk…my goal became to simply absorb and learn what I was being taught.

The turning point

While online, I received an email that had an mp3 and a transcript of an interview with a person whom was being referred to as a copywriting legend.

I read the transcript of the interview ..I don’t remember who the interviewer was that was doing  the interview…

But I was impressed.

I had to find out more about Gary B.

So off to the old trusty search engine I went.

A search on google turned up a website.

Now, I’m really excited.

I can learn more about copywriting from a master copywriter who’s been where I want to go.

How cool is that?

Fast forward two years.

And it’s been a pleasure reading his bullets ever since.

Who is Gary B you ask?

It’s short for Gary Bencivenga.

His marketing bullets should be laminated and placed in every aspiring copywriters swipefile.
