Sonia Simone wrote The Betty Crocker Secret to Email Marketing that Works posted at Copyblogger, saying, “You’ve heard it a thousand times: the money’s in the list. If you’re serious about getting results online, you need to build a list of people who are paying attention to you, typically an email list.”

John’s comment: A must read article! I only have one objection: “The money is not in the list! It’s in the relationship with the list.”

Doberman Dan wrote David Deutsch’s Advice To Copywriters posted at Doberman Dan - Direct Response Entrepreneur, saying, “At John Carlton’s Action Seminar David Deutsch shared several life-changing pieces of advice with me. David is one of the handful of top “A list” copywriters… the very best hired guns who write for the HUGE direct response companies like Boardroom, Agora, Rodale and Phillips.”

Michael Seiffer on :


Hallo Mr. Furst! Very good that you continue with this posts. Thank you.

Jodi Kaplan on :


A few more thoughts:

1) Study the masters - John Caples, Claude Hopkins, and Bob Bly

2) The internet is direct mail with jet propulsion. You can "ship", send, and test much faster (and cheaper). So do it.

3) You can even use (gasp) snail mail. I just got yet another AdWords coupon from Google.

Thanks Jodi,

I hope to see one of your articles in my next edition.
