Make Huge Income Writing — No Writing Skill Required!

I got a fantastic offer from the fine folks at TownHall.com–twice, in fact–and just had to pass it on as a service to OTB readers.

Subject: Retire…and still make a six-figure income

Dear Townhall Reader,

Recently, we sent you information detailing an opportunity that will allow you to retire early, live anywhere in the world you choose, and possibly provide you with a six-figure annual income.

We had such an overwhelming response from Townhall readers that I thought I should give you another chance to learn about it. If you weren’t able to take a look at this intriguing opportunity, I strongly urge you to take a few minutes and read the following letter.

I think you’ll be glad you did.

You can read the letter here.

Sincerely,

Katie Yeakle
Executive Director
American Writers & Artists Institute

P.S. If you crave more control over your time and your life… working when and where you want…as much or as little as you want… regaining a sense of personal freedom and financial security…and maybe even retiring early if that’s your goal…don’t let this one pass you by. You have nothing to lose, and everything to gain.

The link takes you to a letter from Paul Hollingshead, Fellow Copywriter and AWAI Co-Founder. He relates his own fascinating story:

It wasn’t long ago that I was struggling to earn a living…jumping from one job I hated to another I hated more…never making more than $30,000. (In my last job, I was making $6.50 hour — $13,520 a year — stocking cans in a grocery store!)

But then I discovered something that changed my life…

I learned the simple secrets to writing the kind of letter you’re reading right now.

From grocery stocker to millionaire entrepreneur! A true Horatio Alger story. And he’s not alone. Look at this testimonial:

“Trust me, I’m no genius. And I’m horrible with my grammar. But the secrets I’ve learned from the program have not only made the writing I do relatively easy, but profitable too. In fact, without the program you’re being invited to join, I say with confidence that I wouldn’t be able to do any of the traveling, writing, or work that I so enjoy today. Thanks to AWAI, I’m living in Paris!” —Will Pratt, Professional Copywriter

Amazing!

But perhaps Hollingshead and Pratt are smarter than they think? I mean, one is a multimillionaire entrepreneur and the other is living in Paris. Paris!!

Not a Writer?
No Problem… (in fact, it’s better that you’re not…)

Most people think that to be a successful writer you have to be born with a special talent…study the classics…amass a huge vocabulary…and know all the rules of English grammar, usage, etc.

Baloney!

To be a great copywriter, you just have to enjoy writing — and understand the simple rules that go into making strong copy.

And the number one rule is: Be Yourself! In other words, don’t try to be a writer.

Don’t use big words, flowery sentences, or fancy prose. Don’t try to be clever — and avoid clichés at all costs. The most successful sales letters are written in a very conversational tone — almost like you’re talking to a friend. In fact, one of the secrets you’ll learn in AWAI’s Accelerated Program for Six Figure Copywriting is “the barstool test,” where you read something you’ve written aloud…and if it sounds like something you’d say to a friend sitting next to you — it’ll work as sales letter copy!

Once you can write in a conversational tone, it’s just a matter of knowing what to say when. Of course AWAI’s Accelerated Program for Six-Figure Copywriting will show you everything — and it’s jam-packed with tips and techniques designed to make every paragraph you write more effective and powerful.

And be sure to pay special attention to Section 24, “The Architecture of Persuasion.” Read it and you’ll understand in an instant what great copywriting is all about.

Is this a great country, or what?
