"Please Stop Writing Copy!"

“I’ve rung up almost a billion dollars in sales for clients from the Fortune 500 to fast-growing small businesses to direct response giants like Boardroom and Agora.

“But it wasn’t by out-writing anyone.
It was by out-thinking them.


“Read on and see why that’s what makes it so easy to create the kind of sales pages, VSLs, ads, and emails that send prospects scurrying for their credit cards.”

Dear Friend,

In fast-changing times like these, it’s more dangerous than ever to rely on mindlessly applied templates, formulas and “copy hacks.”

And easier than ever to enjoy a huge competitive advantage by rising above the robotic glut of cookie-cutter copy that, in the words of Claude Hopkins, rolls off the prospect like water off a duck.

Of course, there’s nothing wrong with templates, formulas and “copy hacks.” I use them myself from time to time. Even developed a few.

They can be a great STARTING point.

But what’s amazing is that for so many writers and entrepreneurs today, it’s virtually ALL they rely on – never discovering that with a little originality and strategic thinking they can watch conversions skyrocket.

I’ve seen the power of this time and time again over the past few years as copywriter after copywriter I’ve worked with has transformed businesses and their own careers simply by realizing that…

CopyTHINKING
Beats Copywriting

Look, I've read thousands of pages of copy from clients and copywriters.

The vast majority follow the typical formulas and templates.

Using all the typical phrases…

Arranged in all the typical ways….

Resulting in an epidemic of humdrum copy that is soulless and devoid of energy or genuine connection.

That’s just not going to cut it. Not at a time when trust and connection with consumers is paramount.

No wonder so many marketers and writers are frustrated and not getting the results they want.

The antidote is never more formulas, templates or “copy hacks.”
The solution is simply: Stop writing and start thinking.

Stop seeing what you do as “copywriting.”
Start seeing it as copyTHINKING.

That’s the quickest and easiest path to more effective copy.

So stop writing for a second and just think about all the ways you can enter the conversation your prospect is already having with themselves and others.

THINK about what really differentiates yourself from the competition.

THINK about what your market has already been exposed to.

And THINK about how you will arouse the feelings, thoughts and beliefs that will lead them to take the action you want them to take.

Only NOW are you ready to write.

And believe me, writing is a WHOLE LOT easier (and a whole lot more profitable) if you THINK it through first.

Because what distinguishes the “best” writers from the rest of the writers isn’t their collection of templates, formulas and hacks.

It’s their thinking.

How can you become a great copyTHINKER and think your way to great copy and success?

Well, you could do what I did…

Spend a few years on Madison Avenue at one of the most prestigious ad agencies in the world.

In my case, it was Ogilvy & Mather, and I was lucky enough to be there while David Ogilvy still occasionally roamed the halls, demanding accountable creativity and showing how it’s done with brilliant campaigns like the “Man in the Hathaway Shirt” and “At 60 Miles an Hour, the Loudest Noise in This New Rolls Royce Comes from the Electric Clock.”

Then I realized I could actually use copy to SELL stuff directly, and left the ad agency world to hone my “salesmanship in print” skills by working with legendary direct response geniuses such as Gary Halbert, Jay Abraham, John Carlton, Jim Rutz, and Jim Punkre.

After that, I proved my mettle by beating the “control” promotions of the best copywriters on the planet and generating hundreds of millions in sales for leading direct response companies such as Boardroom, Inc. (now Bottom Line Publications, for whom I once had an unprecedented six controls running at once), Agora, Rodale, Phillips Publishing, Healthy Directions, and many of today’s leading supplement marketers.

What an education! I learned something different from each and every one of them!

And finally, I honed my ability to teach what I had learned by coaching dozens of writers to the next level of success, including:

  • Marcella Allison, who is today an A-list copy superstar and is teaching the next generation of superstars.
  • Justin Goff, who credits me with taking his copy “from good to great” and helping him increase his income tenfold to $2.2 million a year.
  • And Evaldo Albuquerque, who is now known as Agora’s “80-Million-Dollar Man” for selling that much product with his copy in a single year. (Imagine the royalties on that!)

You could do all that to get to the top of the game.

Or, you can just let me show you exactly what I do.

Now, normally for me to work with you, you have only two choices.

You could pay me tens of thousands to write a promotion, and then hundreds of thousands in royalties as it reaps millions for you.

Or pay me a few thousand a month for private coaching and consulting.

But now I’m finally ready to get the truth about copywriting out to as many people as possible who are ready to hear it.

So here's what I did...

David Ogilvy - Founder, Ogilvy & Mather Advertising

“You write well."

Marcella Allison - Copywriter

“David always pushes me to make my copy better, stronger, more compelling. He never lets me settle for ‘OK’ or ‘good enough’. And, amazingly, I find myself, and my copy rising to the challenge. It’s like having your own personal Olympic coach whispering in your ear… Listen closely enough and you might just land that gold medal.”

Justin Goff - Copy & Funnel Accelerator, Columbus, Ohio

"I was a bit nervous at first about plunking down the money to work with David. It's not cheap by any means. To give you a frame of reference, I was a decent copywriter before working with David. I created two products from scratch and made over $400,000 in profit with those through VSL's online. However, In the months I've been working with David, my copy has improved so much that I look at my old pieces and cringe. David was instrumental in helping me write a supplement offer that sold 10,000 canisters in the first month through cold traffic. It might sound cliche, but my only regret with hiring David is that I didn't hire him sooner."

Mike Abramov - Copywriter

“The promotion you coached me on launched yesterday and has already hit multiple 5-figures within the first 24 hours. 

"Best sales letter I’ve ever written. Thank you, David.”

But now I’m finally ready to get the truth about copywriting out to as many people as possible who are ready to hear it.

So here's what I did...

CAUGHT ON TAPE!

My Elite, Closed-Door Copy Training

I gave a private training for one of the oldest, largest and most respected direct response companies in the world.

Their product managers and copywriters in the room were hungry for me to show them how to produce better copy – because, like all direct response companies, better copy means a lot more sales and profits.

And maybe it was because I was thousands of miles away from my clients, colleagues and competitors in the U.S., but I completely opened up to them about what it truly takes to get A-list, top-performing copy: not just the techniques but the thinking behind them. And yes, even a formula, template and hack or two.

I poured out my secrets for four days straight... took them through the entire process of how I write a sales letter… and kept it simple enough that the rookies in the room could understand, but also gave the more advanced writers the A-list thinking and techniques that could take them to the next level.

Fortunately, I had it all recorded.

And I had the four-day boot camp painstakingly edited at no small expense into…

14 easy-to-consume videos that kept only the very best of all those dozens of hours I spent laying bare the secrets of great copy based on decades of experience.

And those videos are just part of my new program...

Announcing

A-LIST COPYWRITING SECRETS

My brand-new program, A-LIST COPYWRITING SECRETS, is the first time I’ve ever revealed the methods I’ve used to bring in close to a billion dollars for my clients.

If you’re a copywriter, watching these videos will enable you to take your copy to the next level – thereby leaving your competition in the dust and commanding higher fees and royalties.

If you’re a marketer, even if you don’t want to write copy yourself (and you probably should), it will give you the concepts, understanding and insight required to get MUCH better copy from your freelance or in-house writers and leave your competitors wondering what hit them.

But naturally, the program is not just videos.

To really drive home the lessons in these videos, I combined them with a series of simple exercises that, when you complete them, give you a finished sales letter for any product or service.

I’ve also given you a window into the kind of thinking and techniques that go into the creation of real-world, world-class promotions by including detailed notes for some of my most successful promotions ever.

And since this program is just being announced, for a VERY limited time you’ll have the opportunity to get special live group coaching from me personally.  I'll be answering questions and expanding on not only what’s in the program, but also my most advanced copywriting and persuasion techniques.

And finally, there’s one more big secret the best copywriters know, and that is: The design and layout of your promotion can have a huge influence on response.

Because while the wrong design can kill response, the RIGHT design can…

Multiply Response and Conversion—
Without Changing A Single Word
(Two Very Special BONUS Sessions)

My very special guest at this seminar was Lori Haller, the award-winning designer who is more dedicated to increasing response than most copywriters. 

Instead of creating designs that merely look good, she multiplies response with her deep psychological understanding of how graphics, colors, shapes, formats, styles and fonts can attract attention, hold the reader and move them to act.

No wonder she has been able to send response through the roof, in head to head tests, simply by tweaking the design. And no wonder the best copywriters BEG clients to hire her to do the design and layout for their promotions.

At this secret seminar, in two special sessions, Lori revealed all the ways design can enhance response. And I’ve included both sessions with A-LIST COPYWRITING SECRETS.

SPECIAL BONUS SESSION #1

Million-Dollar Design Secrets

The first bonus session is packed with Lori’s best secrets for increasing response with design. These are techniques you can put to work immediately on your next promotion…

  • How to easily increase response by aligning your visuals with the copy. (at 0:30)
  • The 4 most successful print formats to use. Innovate at your own risk! (2:20)
  • The web design trend that’s replaced “hype.” (5:40)
  • Which colors are most up to date and effective TODAY for attracting attention. (11:11)
  • 2 design mistakes that cause copy to stumble at the finish line. (22:07)
  • Proven direct mail techniques that dramatically increase response online. (The secret weapons of some of today’s top digital marketers.) (27:13)
  • How to ensure long copy gets READ. (28:12)
  • The design tweak that drives more traffic anywhere you use it – on emails, banner ads, landing pages and more. (29:28)
  • Design secrets from a winning landing page that brought in over $18 million. (32:03)
  • A quick way to visually create instant urgency in your prospect. (32:03)
  • A unique design trick that makes your bullets more interesting. (35:08)

Bob Bly - Direct Response Copywriter

“Lori has a deep understanding of direct mail and digital marketing as well as vastly superior graphic design skills, judgment, and aesthetic taste.

"You are an absolute treasure to me and my clients.”

Rick Popowitz - President & CEO, Biocentric Health, Inc.

“Thank you, thank you Lori! In just a few weeks your creative designs helped me launch 3 new products.

"You have a unique ability to blend copy with design so that they complimented each other.”

SPECIAL BONUS SESSION #2…
Layout Secrets That Get Attention and Provoke Action

In the next bonus session, you’ll see Lori in action as she works her magic and demonstrates how to lay out copy for maximum response before your eyes. Watch as Lori shows you…

  • The visual patterns that create energy – which leads to attention and action. (at 1:09)
  • The one thing you must do to catch your prospect’s attention and interest right away on your landing page. (2:56)
  • How to work with a designer most efficiently and effectively to create more winning promotions. (4:45)
  • The quickest way to lay out direct mail for maximum readership and response. (0:45)

Molly Condrey - Marketing Director UniScience, Premier Direct

“I’ve collaborated with Lori on a multitude of long running direct mail controls together. She keeps her head in the marketing game and is highly aware of what is working and is always looking on the horizon for the next best thing.

"Her fingers are always on the pulse of all aspects of health product marketing from label design to direct mail piece creation to landing page design.”

Kevin Wichtendahl - Rejuvablend and Genius Java

“Because of Lori we were able to stop wasting money on projects that were clearly never going to be profitable.

"I thought I was hiring an amazing graphic designer — what I received instead was a mentor, coach, strategic mastermind and visionary.”

Ridiculously Inexpensive

This program could easily be worth tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars to you in the long run.

And there were many whose opinions I respect who insisted I should charge top-tier pricing. $2,000, $3,000, or more.

However I really do want to keep the price low to get it out to as many people as possible.

So, I figured, why not price it at just $997? That way, it’s a proverbial “no brainer” for anyone who writes copy for a living or who uses it in their business – and quickly pays for itself many times over, because often, better response is just a single copy tweak away.

It’s a far cry from the $30,000 plus a percentage of net sales that it would take to hire me to work on a project – if I were even available.

"A-List Copywriting Secrets is a legitimate treasure trove worth far more than its modest ask."

Don’t Keep It If You Don’t Like It

I have a good reputation in this business and I intend to keep it that way. As long as you request a refund within the 30-Day Money-Back Guarantee window, you can rest assured there’ll be no quibbling about a refund if you’re anything less than ecstatic about the program.

The worst that can happen if you try out the program is that you’ve paid nothing to discover what it takes to write copy that generates a billion dollars in sales.

Fair enough?

If You’re in a Hurry to Get to the Top…
Direct Access to Me Is Included

Are you in a hurry to become a better copywriter – or to improve your ability to get the most from your freelance or in-house writers?

Good, I like that.

Because to turbocharge your ascent to great copywriting (and copyTHINKING), I’m also going to give you direct access to me through a series of private, invitation-only, group online training and Q&A sessions.

I'm scheduling two of these calls every month. You'll get advanced notice before each one.  And we'll send you a link to the recording, if you can't make it.

You’ll have a rare opportunity to ask questions and get direct feedback from me – about the program, your exercises from the program, or anything else you want to ask about.

I don’t know how long I’ll continue to do these live training sessions.  Maybe not long at all.

If you're reading this, I've got a spot for you in 3 of these coaching calls over the next few weeks.

No extra charge for these coaching session. They are included, as a bonus, when you purchase A-List Copywriting Secrets.

“Early in my copywriting career I was lucky to work with David in a project where he was my mentor.

"Why lucky? Because David has decades of experience and that’s not easy to find. You can read all the copywriting books in the world, but nothing replaces experience.

"I learned a ton from him and I highly recommend David’s course to anyone who’s serious about becoming a better copywriter.”

This Is for YOU If…

If your income depends on copy in any way, you can’t afford to be without this program. Especially if…

  1. 1
    You’re a beginning copywriter who wants to get up to speed FAST – This program will give you extreme clarity on the art of direct response copy and help you avoid years of going around in circles by showing you what copywriting at the highest level is really all about. If you’re confused about all the copywriting information out there, this program is a great place to start.
  2. 2
    You’re an intermediate copywriter who wants to jump up a level or two – If you’re looking to leapfrog over the competition, let them memorize more formulas, templates, and hacks. You’ll know how copyTHINKING can give you a whole new level of confidence and fast-track your trip over to the A-list.
  3. 3
    You’re an advanced copywriter looking for an edge – If you’re an advanced copywriter, some of what I teach may not be totally new to you. But what IS new you’ll be able to quickly and effectively put to use for a huge return on your investment. And my private online training and Q&A sessions, where you and other copywriters and marketers can ask anything you want, will ensure you get the kind of targeted help you need to advance your skills.
  4. 4
    You’re a business owner who wants to write great copy – If you write your own copy, or have ever considered doing so, I can help you become your company’s best copywriter. I have helped many business owners write their own copy, including Justin Goff while he was building his supplement company that he sold for a multi-million-dollar payday.
  5. 5
    You’re a marketer who wants better copy from freelancers or your in-house copywriter – Even if you don’t want to write your own copy, you must be able to tell great copy from good copy from mediocre copy – and THEN know what it takes to MAKE copy great. If you market through direct response, there may be no more important skill you can have.
  6. 6
    You need to improve your persuasion or sales skills – Although the program centers around copywriting, bear in mind that the underlying skills being taught are those of persuasion and sales – which can be applied in a wide variety of situations other than just copywriting.

What’s Your “Plan B”?

If you’re not ready to invest just $997, what do you plan to do instead?
Keep relying on the same templates, formulas and copy hacks that most other copywriters and companies are depending on?

Spend years hoping to pick up some useful copywriting tips from the many books and courses already out there?

Or are you ready to learn from someone who has been there and done it, from the halls of Madison Avenue to the super-competitive world of today’s top direct response companies like Agora, Boardroom and so many others in so many different markets?

Because in business today, nothing is more important, and nothing will get you where you want to go faster, than great copy.

Kyle Craig - Copywriter, San Francisco, California

“Great teachers are a rare gem. They must help the learner move forward without getting in the way of the lesson. 

"David, your guidance was brilliant. You always gave the right explanation, a helpful hint, or sometimes a kick in the pants that allowed me to move forward and to fully absorb the lesson. 

"The advice you gave was always spot-on. The difference in my message before your advice and after your advice is the difference between an outhouse and the Taj Mahal."

Your MUCH More Successful
Future Starts NOW...

Try persuading someone in person with formulas, templates and hype.

You’ll soon find it’s not enough at best, and a turn-off at worst.

In person, on the page, on the screen, you must tap into your natural-born ability to communicate and persuade.

For business owners, one of the biggest – if not THE biggest – leverage points in any business for improving the bottom line is better copy.

As Gary Halbert once said, “There is no business problem that can’t be solved with a world-class sales letter.”

As copywriters, if you can truly provide businesses with that kind of game-changing, bottom-line-improving copy, the world is your oyster.

I hope you’ll allow me to help you make that happen.

Yours for Truly Great Copy,

David L. Deutsch

P.S. I almost forgot…

This may be the most important thing you’ll receive.

I also want to send you a video of an interview I did for a marketing company in Singapore that focused on the importance of copyTHINKING, how much easier it makes writing great copy, and how to do it.

This is really the first and only time anyone has drilled down so deeply with me on this.

I thought it was important for you to have it – and you’ll be able to access it IMMEDIATELY.

Perhaps You're Wondering...

Is there a payment plan?

  • Yes. Considering all you will learn and how valuable my copyTHINKING techniques have proven to be for my clients and students, this program is a relative bargain at $997. Still, we want to make it as affordable as possible. You'll find a easy-to-mange payment plan waiting for you on the other side of that order button.

I struggle to come up with fresh, big ideas for my copy. Will this help?

  • Absolutely. Module 3 covers how to easily find great ideas for your copy.

Will this help me with writer’s block?

  • Of course! When you know what to do and how to do it, it gives you confidence that cuts right through writer’s block.

I hate resorting to hype all the time. What can I do?

  • Module 2 shows you how to let go of your need to embellish and what to do instead. You’ll be able to build trust and sell your services without sounding like Joe the used-car salesman. I also have a really cool trick I’ll teach you in Module 1 about how to find and use your unique, more sincere "voice."

Will this help me write faster?

  • Yes, by both speeding up how quickly you can come up with ideas, which is half the battle, and by showing you how to write from your Inner Persuader, more the way you talk. (You can talk pretty fast, no?)

What if I want to use a template?

  • Great! There are some excellent copy templates out there. But they aren’t what make copy effective – they only provide a structure. CopyTHINKING makes copy effective. And the principles laid out in the program will help you write using that template in your own style, in a powerful, effective way.

Will this help me get more clients?

  • Look, I can tell you from all the people banging at MY door, and all the people who ask me for copywriter recommendations: Great copy is ALWAYS in demand. Heck, there aren’t enough GOOD copywriters out there to meet the demand. Get to great and you can literally write your own paycheck.

Is this program specific to a certain medium, such as online, direct mail, Facebook or whatever, or to a certain industry?

  • In this program, you’ll find the timeless principles and techniques you need to solve ANY copywriting challenge – whether it’s landing pages, direct mail sales letters and magalogs, emails, “About” pages, print ads, or Facebook advertising. However, if you’re looking for how to specifically do one of these, that’s not what this program is about.

I'm looking at a few copy courses right now. What makes yours different?

  • The first thing that makes it different from many courses out there is that it goes beyond templates, formulas and copy hacks, and shows you not just how to copyWRITE, but how to copyTHINK.
  • It’s the single biggest element missing from copy today, and as a marketer or writer will immediately put you in a class by yourself.
  • Plus, I doubt you’ll find another program out there that’s based on such a wide range of experience: from the most prestigious ad agency on Madison Avenue to two of the most respected direct response companies flourishing today: Boardroom (BottomLine Publishing) and Agora.

Is this just for beginners, or can experienced writers also benefit?

  • Intermediate and advanced writers can definitely benefit.
  • Here’s what one experienced writer told me after going through the program: “The modules may appear simple at first. But after re-watching a couple of them I realized that even though the language is simple, the ideas and frameworks are excellent... even for the expert copywriter.”

How much time will it take to go through the program?

  • Most of the 14 Modules are under 20 minutes. You can take the program at your own pace, or binge-watch Netflix style. In any case, I recommend repeated viewings to get everything there is to get out of them.
  • I'm also sending you transcripts of the video lessons.  So you can mix watching and reading to get maximum value for your time and learning style. 

How Is the course delivered?

  • The videos – the 14 program modules, the 2 bonus modules on the power of design, the video breakdowns of my best ads, and the bonus “How to CopyTHINK” presentation – are all available for immediate streaming.
  • "Immediate", as in you can be watching the first lesson in just a few minutes.
  • Hard copies of all other materials – workbook, samples, transcripts – will be rushed to you as soon as we get your approval.

How long do I have access to the videos?

  • You’ll have lifetime access to the core video modules and bonus videos.

What’s your refund policy?

  • It’s simple: You want your money back within 30 days, you got it.
  • Hop over to MarketingRebelSupport.com, open a ticket, and we'll walk you through it. No questions asked.

What if I have more questions – or need support after I purchase?

  • Go to MarketingRebelSupport.com and open a ticket. We’ll get back to you within 48 hours (usually sooner) with answers and whatever you need.
