Can you persuade?

Do you know how to compel people to act, fight corporate speak, and leave a powerful impression?

Do you know the secrets of clear writing, what to cut to be concise, and the words you shouldn't cut?

Do you know how to shake off academic complexity, turn prospects into customers, or convert words into cash?

Or is copywriting still a bit of a mystery?

Struggling with low conversions?
Nervous about pressing publish?
Hesitant about pressing send?
Tired of bad copy costing you money?
Failing to captivate your customers?
There's a very good reason for it all.And it's not your fault.

"John’s copywriting guide is a godsend to writers, wannabe writers, and those who think they aren’t cut out for writing. I can’t wait to see what gets added over time and to keep growing as a writer. It’s giving me the confidence to raise my copywriting rates. Phenomenal resource. 10/10."

School taught you terribly

Actually, it's worse than that.They taught you the exact opposite of what you should do.Here are the 11 ways school inadvertently screwed you:

01/ No practical application

You weren't taught how to be clear, engaging, persuasive, or convincing.Instead, English class focused on writing essays about books.

02/ Misunderstanding of purpose

You weren't taught to consider the purpose of your writing.And you weren't taught to understand the needs and expectations of an audience.

03/ Writing was "creative"

You were taught to see writing as a creative pursuit instead of a skill that needed to be developed and improved.Nobody told you words are a tool.

“I've been following and learning from John on LinkedIn since February. So purchasing his guide was an easy decision. John consistently delivers a remarkable level of quality, and the guide is no exception. In fact, I've immediately made several adjustments on my website. Now, it feels more welcoming and human :)”

Kate Sotsenko

04/ Rewarded for bad writing

Your teachers had misconceptions about what good writing is.They rewarded long, complex, flowery language.

05/ Little emphasis on editing

You weren't taught to understand what could be edited or deleted.Instead, you were incentivised to hit an arbitrary word count.

06/ Lack of coaching

Without feedback and coaching, you weren't aware of your writing weaknesses.Feedback was vague like "be more descriptive" or "be more analytical".

"With 30 years of bid writing under my belt, I thought I was a professional. I was wrong. This guide has already improved my writing in leaps and bounds, and I find myself going back it every time I compose and then edit. One of the best investments you can make in yourself, and strongly recommended to anyone who writes anything for a living."

John Leonard
Bid Writer | Fixatex Ltd

07/ Writing was undervalued

Functional writing skills weren't given as much attention as subjects like maths and science.Algebra and the periodic table were prioritised over a skill with the tools of communication.

08/ Writing was made complicated

You were taught to obsess over grammar.Or you weren't taught about it at all.

09/ Writing was solitary

You were taught to consider writing a solitary activity discouraging you from seeking feedback.So when it got hard you felt alone and had nobody to turn to for help.

Lara Acosta

"John is one of the best copywriters I know. The amount of dedication he puts into his craft is extraordinary."

Sayanta Goswami
Ray Rafiq Omar

“The information inside the guide blew my mind away! It wasn't a guide that only said "Write short sentences." It showed which factors to keep in mind. What makes people read (or skip). What tactics to use. With examples. What's even better? I'll get all the updates he makes to the guide for free. FOREVER.”

Sayanta Goswami
LinkedIn Ghostwriter

10/ Gifted not skilled

Nobody told you writing well is a skill anyone can learn.It felt like there were a fortunate few bestowed with mastery, and you're either born a good writer or not.

11/ No preparation for business

Nobody uttered the word "copywriting" or what it means to use words to sell and persuade.And so, you've had zero preparation for writing at work or in business.

Hey, maybe you enjoyed English at school. But did it teach you the writing skills you need today?Or did it just teach you to pass exams?

And that bad training still affects you today

No wonder good writing is elusive.You've never had it broken down or shown to you. You've just been doing your best.You've been making best guesses, knowing that you need to be clear and concise but not knowing how.

Everything's at risk

Here's the impact:

01/ Ineffective communication

You struggle to express your thoughts clearly and effectively, which likely impacts your business or career growth.

02/ No audience engagement

Devoid of purpose or audience understanding, your writing fails to resonate or engage. Quite isolating.

03/ Feeling lost

In circumstances where communication is valued you may feel completely inadequate.

04/ Fear of mistakes

School's grading system, which favoured adherence to rules over creativity, may have instilled a fear of making mistakes.

05/ Lost opportunity

Misconceptions about effective writing have led to misunderstandings that have potentially cost you opportunities in your professional life.

06/ Communication skill gap

The disconnect between academia and everyday communication has left you unaware of how to fix it, or worse, blind to bad writing.

And so...

You can’t effectively make your point, your writing is unfocused, your message is unnecessarily cluttered, your writing lacks insight. It rarely achieves what you had hoped. It feels either rigid or unstructured and the gems hidden in it are suffocated by how you were taught.Opportunity, hindered.
Reputation, damaged.
Ideas, muted.

And if you don’t change:

01/ You rely on luck

You rely on how well you can guess what a good writer would have written.

02/ Other people out-write you

+ They get your client
+ They make your money
+ They have your freedom
+ They land your dream job
+ They enjoy your pay rise
+ They launch your business
+ They become the authority
+ They secure your investment
+ They convince your customers
+ They persuade your prospects

They dictate your future by better controlling the tools of communication.Words.

But what if you could control words...

and use them to dictate your future?Imagine having that superpower.You would persuade customers and captivate clients.You would clearly and concisely explain your view of the world.You would feel confident to press publish. Imagine being proud of your writing.People would read your work and call it insightful.Even better, you could spark action with words alone.You could make a difference.

Imagine taking that skill anywhere...

To any company. To any country. In any economy.Writing well is a meta skill and it's portable.A good writer will always find work.Even better, imagine applying that skill to your own venture.These millionaires and billionaires think writing well is pretty important...

    You need to write a landing page but you don't know where to start.

    01/ Problem
    And so you end up in one of two places:01/ You don't write it
    02/ You take a stab at it
    Let's say you're up for the challenge, and you take a stab at writing a landing page.

    But are you a pro copywriter?

    If you are, you don't need me.But if you're not a pro copywriter and you need to convince people to buy your thing, you might want to stick around.Because without my course, who would write your landing page?If my experience is anything to go by it'll be you, or someone in Product, or Marketing, or the Founder. Someone who isn't trained to convince or persuade. Someone who doesn't know copywriting frameworks, someone with a different skill set, no real time to commit, who has a completely separate, full time role.They'll write it.

    Which means you rely on how lucky that person is

    You rely on how well they guessed what an expert Copywriter would have written.You don't rely on luck for your health, your house, your car, your kids, or your money...So, why rely on luck in business?Actually, I know why.And it's not your fault.

    Nobody teaches you copywriting at school

    Nobody trained you to write clearly, or convincingly.You weren't privy to the secret that, if you control the tools of communication, you dictate the future.Instead teachers forced you to read old books and write boring essays. You were trained to hit a word count.And now their training suffocates your business.

    At best, you're leaving money on the table

    At worst, your business dies.It wouldn't be so galling if a competitor out worked you, or had a better product, or more investment.You could deal with that.But to fail simply because people didn't quite understand why they should part with their cash?That would sting.

    Without great copy, you're wasting your marketing budget

    And your time budget.And your energy budget.It's all wasted if you're sending people to a homepage where the words, the only thing that could make them part with their cash, weren't written by a pro.It's as if you're paying people to come to a house party, but you're homeless.So, hire a full time, expert Copywriter?If only it were that easy.
