There must be some reason why this A-lister would make this statement:
“If you learn direct marketing, especially copywriting, I think you’re going to make money whatever the tactic of the month is. If you can’t distinguish your marketing methods from your nearest competitors, learn to be a direct marketing copywriter.” (Alex Mandossian)
Direct copy writing, is direct marketing – you are communicating with your audience and giving them a way to purchase from you directly – rather in your online or offline business. We all need to be copywriters and create that warm connection with our clients. This is just about as close as we can get to meeting them in person or talking on the phone.
You need a lot of copy to build a relationship with your followers. I have heard that the interpretation of copywriting defined is: applied psychology. A good writer is a great communicator.
If you can be in alignment with your writing, it can be an expression of you and the clients you are serving and you will connect a lot better – saving a lot of direct conversations – because your clients will know you better.

How would that impact your online business model to know that the work you do today will pay you for decades to come?
Selling new products to new buyers and former buyers is a great way to make an income but the amount that you can leverage this is limited by how much you can do at any given time. True leverage comes when you earn money from work done once over a period of time. This income cycle is control by how many buyers you have had times the number of months or years that they continue to pay you.
You can do this one of two ways. The first is by back-end products that your buyers may need to continue to use the first product that you sold them or a product to add value to what they are already doing. This requires that you have a continuing stream of product offerings to an existing buyer list. Planned periodic sales campaigns allow you to stay in contact and provide value to …Read more
