My name is Scott Haines. You may or may not know me. But that doesn’t matter much. Because this message is about YOU. YOU, making a lot more money. YOU, getting everything you want quickly and easily. YOU, living the life you want and deserve. And YOU, mastering the secrets of writing world-class advertising copy that can make you rich. If all that sounds interesting … then this is going to be the most exciting and profitable message you’ll ever read! Here’s why: On December 13th, 14th and 15th of 2002, advertising legend Gary Halbert held a “no-holds-barred, let it all hang out, tell-all seminar” on how to write the most effective advertising copy possible. He called it…
“All The New Secrets I Have Discovered About How To Write Sales Messages Which Produce Huge And Automatic Profits!”
Well, let me tell you, I was there and that’s kind of a misleading. Yes, he did reveal many new secrets like… how to turn a losing direct mail campaign into an instant winner… without hardly changing a single word. Or… how you can make big money in direct mail… without getting your lazy-ass off the couch… if you want! And more. But, that’s not all! What he really did, was not just reveal some “new” secrets, he revealed everything — and I mean everything — he knows about writing killer, break-the-bank, money-making copy… including… many secrets he’s never revealed before. (Secrets he has kept to himself and a close “inner circle” of insiders and colleagues for years!) Gary truly let it all hang out at this seminar, and for 2 1/2 days, he—along with a select group of speakers—held the audience spellbound with a literal avalanche of advertising (and marketing) tips, tricks, strategies and techniques. In fact, he even got a roaring standing ovation at the end. The stuff he revealed was incredible. Here’s a small sample:
- How to get everything you want in life… without… force, struggle or unethical behavior! (No need to be a Con Man. Just apply this simple skill… and… sit back while the money, fame and fortune seek you out almost effortlessly!)
- The single most important thing you must do before you sit down to write even one word of your sales message!
- How to find out what people (your customers) really, really want! (Not one business owner in a thousand knows this… yet… it’s crucial if you want to succeed massively with the least amount of time, effort and struggle on your part.)
- Why focus groups and surveys are virtually worthless in the real world, competitive, mean streets of everyday business! (And… what you should do instead to give you an “unfair advantage” when it comes to collecting useful information about your business and market!)
- What you should really focus on if you want to make maximum money from your advertising! (It’s the most important element… and… it is NOT the copy you write. Most advertising experts/copywriters won’t tell you this… but it’s the truth nonetheless.)
- The three most expensive words in advertising!
- Why you should study golfers and the golf market! (The key to making maximum money is hidden in the underlying psychology of this market. Understand this “key” and you’ll have all the money and success you could ever want!)
- The true story of how one woman “wrote off” her breast enlargements on her taxes. The IRS challenged her and she won! (This, admittedly, doesn’t have much to do with copywriting… but… it’s enlightening to say the least.)
- Why what you “think” your customers want or care about doesn’t matter one iota! (Even if your I.Q. is 220… you can’t guess at what the hell people really want. Here’s how to find out quickly and easily!)
- Why blonds get “hit on” more often than brunettes… and… how to make more money in your business from this piece of real world knowledge!
- The “one” resource you must have if you are (or want to be in) the direct response business! (This “shortcut-to-success” resource is mandatory… if you don’t have it, you’re not really in the game… and you’re making 1/10 the money you could be!)
- The 1-2 Government punch that’ll knock you out of business immediately… even if… you are doing everything right and 100% legally!
- A simple way to “improve your awareness” of what people will pay good money for. This simple secret is only known (and used) by a handful of street-savvy, successful entrepreneurs… Now, You Can Use It Too!
- How one “smart” but “not so smart”, direct response business owner made $28 Million before age 30 and lost it all in 24 hours! (He was completely blindsided… and you can be too… if you don’t protect yourself!)
- A little-known emerging market (some might consider sleazy) that is quickly making multi-millionaires out of “average Joes” almost overnight! (If you’re not offended by this market… you can make a bundle too!)
- The real secrets for making insane amounts of money in direct marketing! (Only a handful of “gurus” even know this secret… let alone, teach it!)
- How to turn simple, inexpensive classified ads into a real, thriving business! (For example: Gary tells the true story of a friend in Santa Barbara, California who took in an astonishing $250,000 per week… all from these tiny powerhouses!)
- What a heroin “junky” can teach you about selling and making fistfuls of cash! (And no, you don’t have to go “hangout” with drug addicts to learn this. However, you need to understand the hidden psychology contained in their behavior. You won’t hear this in DM News or Target Marketing… yet… it’s crucial if you want maximum success!)
- The most important direct marketing web site in the world! (If you got nothing else from this seminar… you’d still make back your investment 10 to 100 times or more by knowing where to find this web site!)

You can’t afford not to know how to deal with this coming crisis… the 7 strategies will show you how!)

(This, the most costly natural disaster to hit U.S. soil, prompted Gary to quickly put his copywriting skills into action… and… become the largest individual donor—for that disaster—in the United States! This story relates how, once you become a good copywriter, you can use your skill to increase the “good” in the world… and… help out humanity.)

Kick-Ass Copywriting Secrets Of A Marketing Rebel!If you’ve never heard John talk before, you’re in for a real treat!He’s called “the secret weapon” by his clients. “Secret,” because, up till now, he has avoided the harsh limelight of fame, preferring to lay low and let his work do his talking. “Weapon,” because any marketer lucky enough to hire him sees their profits skyrocket!

Now You Too Can Tap Into This Same Deep Well Of Expertise!
In his talk, John reveals how proven world-class copywriters really use Hooks, Killer Salesmanship, the Function of Seduction and Operation Moneysuck... to rake in truckloads of cash!Here’s a sample of the “kick-ass” copywriting secrets he revealed:
- Four brutally-effective secrets for writing world-class ad copy! (I’ve read every good to great copywriting book/course ever printed… and… none of them contained Secret Number 2 or 4!)
- • The most successful single word you can use in your ads and sales letters! (It’s not “you” or “free”… although those words are good. No, this word is far more powerful and effective… and… it literally forces people to buy now!)

- When you should, and when you should not use “slang” or “lingo” in your copy! (Used correctly, slang can dramatically boost results. However, use it incorrectly and you’ll be laughed at and humiliated… and… fall flat on your face. Believe it or not, in some markets (not all) tactful use of swearing improves results. You may not like that, and I’m not suggesting you take up swearing to your customers… however, in any case, it’s the truth!)

- Why you should subscribe to all the trashy tabloid newspapers… especially The National Enquirer. (Trust me, you’ll get more real world value from these gossip rags than from reading The New York Times!)
- How to find the killer “hook” or human-interest tidbit you need to write a great headline! (Most headlines are wimpy and weak and the results reveal that. Here’s how to infuse some street-savvy, sales appeal into your headlines for maximum response!)
- What to use on the top of your letters instead of headlines! (This lost art of grabbing the reader’s attention is one of the most effective techniques you can possess in your copywriting “bag of tricks”!)
- How to distinguish the difference between a feature and a benefit… and… why this is vitally important to your ad copy’s success!
- How to write world-class bullet points that carry a 1-2 knockout sales punch! (You see, there are good bullets… great bullets… and then there are world-class bullets.

This Information Is Mandatory!However, you missed the chance to hear it “live”. But there’s still hope! Gary had a professional video and audio crew tape the entire seminar. Every single minute. Not one secret left out! And that’s good news for you. You see, having the tapes of a seminar is often even better than attending live! Here’s why: At a live seminar, you often miss 40% to 60% or more of what is being said. However, when you have the tapes… you can review them over and over… and… take meticulous notes. With the recordings, you won’t miss anything! That’s extremely important. Dan Kennedy, in his December 2002, No B.S. Marketing Newsletter harps on about the importance of stray ideas. He says, that even one single “stray” idea you get from a seminar can often make you a fortune. And he credits just one “stray” idea/comment Gary made (at one of his early 1990s Key West seminars) as an idea that has made him millions of dollars over the years! And you know what? This copywriting seminar was chock-full of stray comments and ideas… any one of which could make you millions. And… will make some of the people who attended millions. You can join this crowd by getting the tapes and looking for your one “stray” Anyway, that’s not all the good news… if you’ll order the tapes within 11 days… you can get them at…
1/2 Off What The Attendees Had To Pay!You’ll get the entire seminar, every minute recorded on video. So you can watch at home or on your phone. And, you’ll get all this for — not the $2,450 the primary attendees had to pay to learn it… but 1/2 off, just…
$1,225That’s an even $1,225. Does that still seem like a lot of money to you? If so, consider these facts:
- Gary almost always charges the full seminar attendance price for the tapes! (He very seldom makes 1/2 off deals.)
- You’re saving airfare, hotel and other travel related expenses. (Significant because, this seminar was held at the luxurious Arizona Biltmore Resort and Spa in Phoenix. The room rate per night averages over $300! (Savings to you, close to $2,000… maybe more!)
- Robert Allen — publicly, on television — said that one idea he got from Gary at a seminar made him an extra $75 million!
- Dr. Gerald McCarthy went to one of Gary’s early 1990s seminars and Gary gave him just one idea. And, in the next 12 months, Dr. McCarthy made a documented $7,137,281.00 he would not have made otherwise had he not attended the seminar! (And, believe it or not, Dr. McCarthy attended one of Gary’s seminars almost a decade later… and… starting from scratch… with just one idea he got from Gary… made another windfall of nearly $6 Million in 15 months!)
- Dozens and dozens of others have had $1 Million plus increases after attending a Gary Halbert seminar!
- Hundreds — probably thousands — of others have had more modest increases of $10,000, $50,000, $100,000 up to $1,000,000 after attending. (In any case, a Gary Halbert seminar never costs you anything… it pays you to go [or to get the tapes]… unless… you do nothing with the secrets he reveals.)
- You’ll learn — really learn from a true master — the most valuable skill in the world! You can get anything you want in life with these advanced, insider copywriting skills. Money, Fame, Love, Success, Out of Trouble, etc.
- It’s probably less than you’d pay for a semester of courses at your local university… which… gives you back exactly zero, zilch, nada in the life skills/money-making department!
And last time I checked, $1 U.S. was equal to approximately $2 Australian. Meaning: it cost him well over $5,000! You’ll spend next to nothing compared to Brett for the exact same top-secret info… delivered right to your front door. You can then “own” these super-profitable secrets… and… realize a lifetime of extraordinary success. Give the recordings a try and see if you can’t more than triple your own sales or those of your clients. Order Now!)P.P.S.
