1 – Action Seminar Copy Panel
Copywriters do a great job selling other people’s stuff, but a lot of them have trouble selling themselves.
In this segment, David Deutsch (A-list copywriter), Kevin Rogers (working copywriter with several years’ experience), Harlan Kilstein (experienced copywriter who also hires copywriters) and Joe Polish and Mary Ellen (who hire copywriters) discuss the copywriting business from two perspectives…the copywriters themselves and those who hire them.
Great stuff here no matter which side of the fence you are on…
2 – Copy Court 1
Here’s how this works: We selected a handful of submitted websites and manuscripts from attendees… and unleashed our Simple Writing System faculty writers on them.
The panel critiques the effectiveness of the copy, points out weak headlines and sales angles… and hits the essentials they normally cover in their super-expensive paid consultations with clients.
In this Copy Court they critique 6 websites and one sales letter. There is a lot of fast-flowing advice, This segment should give some idea what it’s like to get personal attention from top writers
