“Herodion and Gratia” By Daseph J. Edwards (15 yrs) In a globular world named Jaspasia two masses of land were born out of the ocean One as rocky as the mighty Himalayas The other as beautiful as the heavens And in these two different lands braved two different persons One man and one woman [...]
Few copywriters would discuss the research that’s necessary to write great copy. But a persuasive sales letter doesn’t just jump into a copywriter’s head at will. It takes planning and a lot of research. In fact, I spend over 80% of my time in crafting a sales letter in this research stage and less than [...]
When I first started offering online copywriting services I was faced with how I would price my work. Part of this research led me to the websites of other copywriters as to get an idea of the average other copywriters were charging for their services. I also found a website that gave the industry averages [...]
Should a copywriter be ever asking for help seeling his services? Isn’t this a contradiction of sort? How can you be hlping people to sell theri wares but cannot sell your own?

As a internet marketing consultant having worked with many different businesses Ive seen a lot of foul-ups in my career. In this article Ill just [...]
It’s funny how I can find the money and the resources for the things that I ‘have to’ do. The car transmission fails and suddenly my brain goes into overdrive to solve this pressing problem and get my vehicle back on the road. The rent is due and the thought of being homeless during the [...]
Everyone knows that the weight-loss industry is a billion dollar a year industry. It seems that there is no end to the weigh-loss books that line the shelves at bookstores.

There can be a lot of debate about which diet is the better one and being a vegetarian myself I have my bias. Still whatever diet is followed requires discipline to carry them out and to stick with the plan. There can be a BIG gap between ‘what I know’ and ‘what I do’.
Think about the number of ebooks you have read and the number of training materials that you’ve been through. Have you implemented at least 10% of the advice given there?
