The above "swipes" as they call them are just part of my "stash" of Great Headlines contained in just one - 41 page pdf file that I have stored on my computer.
They came from this:
I have to give credit where credit it due. It was handed down to me from a fellow marketer.
The book gives me inspiration anytime I need to prepare a simple funnel page to draw new subscribers into my little world of making money online.
You see, I was like you one earlier day in my life.
I'm not going to say when, I'm really not even sure when it was that I started down my path of trying to learn. Trying to figure out how exactly all of these "marketing guru's" were doing what they were doing.
There isn't a secret formula to making money online.
I could devise a 10,000 word sales pitch here and hit on your emotions, your sweet spots. Draw you in and then ask you to spend $97 or $197 or even $1,997 for a product, a service, or whatever it is I wanted to sell to you today.
In a short time down this page, I am going to ask you to do something, something that will be so easy, so painless, you won't even know what is happening.
Because you came here because you think there is a pot of gold at the end of the tunnel.
What if I told you that is not true?
Most good copywriting is inspirational.
Why is that you ask?
It's not hard at all.
It is like talking to your spouse, boyfriend, mother, daughter or any person that you carry on a conversation with.
My confession is that I have read through too many good sales offers.
Heck, I even followed the great Gary Halbert's instructions and hand wrote a bunch of sales letters by hand 10 times.
Why would I do that?
Simply because the "great teacher" that Gary was (God Bless his soul) makes everyone that studies under him do the same thing.
Pretty cool, huh?
But it only gets better.
I am ready to run some solo ads.
Worked all day, tweaking and fixing a bunch of 3 or 4 line optin pages, so folks like you, would hand over their email address and first name and head on over to a product that I personally am suggesting that they consider on their journey to financial freedom.
Of course it is.
If you have made it this far down the page, I have that mass between your ears running on overtime.
"Maybe he is right", you are thinking.
"He may have something there".
Look, there are about a zillion ways to make money online.
Just pickup your smart phone, open up TikTok, Instagram, YouTube, any of the social media tools and do a search for "making money online"
Of course you have.
The facts are that more people are turning to social media to solve their problems.
If you have enough patience, and stamina, you could probably figure out how to do whatever it is you want to do.
It isn't that hard.
In fact, it's pretty easy.
There are the "experts" out there that might say a "squeeze page" or "landing page" like this just won't work.
In fact, I was on a zoom type call today that was showing how only 20-25% of people that get email actually open them.
An another surprising tidbit I learned is that only 3% might click on a link.
But that is not what I want you to do.
Just below this section there is going to be my "opt-in" for you.
You can't see it, but I have an invisible gun to you head and going to force you to hand over your information, lol
I don't even own a gun.
The feds took my two guns from me when they broke into my home to ransack it and take my 12 marijuana plants. A story for another day.
Where was I, oh yes.
Your first name and email.
Here is what I am going to do with it.
Over the course of the next few days or weeks or however long it takes you to get sick of me, I am going to grace your presence with a sharp, witty, informative email every single day, weekends included.
There will be some story telling, some humor, but most of all, I am going to present to you various products that not only I have bought and tested, but that will most likely be something you might be interested in.
How do I know that?
Because silly, you want to make money. How much I just don't know at this point in time, but I can guarantee you that you will let me know at some point in the future.
I'll fill you in on that later as well.
Ready for a fun ride?
I don't do anything unless it gives me a warm and fuzzy feeling, you know what I mean.
I better end it here or I might lose you.
Remember, first name and email.
Not asking for money, just your first name and email.
Ready.... let's do it.
When you sign up below to my newsletter or whatever they are calling it these days, you will get your first email within milliseconds, at least that is what my autoresponder company promised me, so be on the lookout for the first email.
And before you go searching for it, you will directed over to a nice WELCOME page that I have designed just for you.
On that page are a few gifts I have for you.
See how easy and painless this was and is going to be.
I do want you to read through the material.
It's all in PDF format, easy to view online or follow the instructions and you can download it to read it later, but DO read it.
There is some really, really good stuff there to get you thinking about things.
At least I hope it does.
My crystal ball is out at the crystal ball repair shop getting an overhaul.
Don't say you weren't warned.
One last spell check and I will let you be on your way.
Remember, first name and email below.
