I like reading quotes from successful people.
They inspire me.
You may have noticed I like using them at the beginning of my blog posts, too.
Here are a few memorable ones from some of my heroes:
“Motion beats meditation.” – Gary Halbert
“Anything worth doing is worth doing poorly.” – Zig Ziglar
“You don’t have to get it perfect, you just have to get it going.” – Gary Halbert
“I can write better than anybody who can write faster, and I can write faster than anybody who can write better.” – A. J. Liebling (Although I first heard this from Gary Bencivenga.)
“Good artists copy. Great artists steal.” – Picasso
“Money solves problems not having money creates.” – John Carlton
“Success is a process, not an event.” – Gary Halbert
“You’re either growing or you’re rotting.” – Dan Kennedy
“There is no problem that can’t be solved with a world-class sales letter.” – Gary Halbert
“Would you rather have the pain of regret or the pain of discipline?” – Ted Nicholas
“A gifted product is mightier than a gifted pen.” – Gary Bencivenga
That’s just a handful. I could go on all day.
All these guys will be remembered for these eloquent and inspiring quotes.
What am I most remembered for?
“Brilliant Copywriting Won’t Sell A Turd!”
It just popped into my head during an interview with copywriter/marketer par excellente, Ben Settle.
I didn’t give it much thought at the time… but for some reason, people seem to remember it.
I really wish I would have said something more eloquent.
I mean, Halbert is remembered for famous stuff like, “Motion beats meditation” and “Success is a process, not an event.”
But me? I’m remembered for my turd quote.
And I can’t seem to escape it.
In fact, I have this recurring nightmare…
I’m floating around in the ether, watching my own funeral.
All my friends and family are there… there’s beautiful music being played by world class musicians… people are reminiscing about me and swapping “Doberman Dan” stories… some are crying, some are laughing…
And after they put me into the ground, a gravestone is carefully placed at the head of my final resting place.
On it, engraved in a beautiful script, are the words…
Here lies Daniel Charles Gallapoo aka Doberman Dan…
“Brilliant copywriting won’t sell a turd.”
I’m sure my family would be proud. 🙂
Anyhoo… the point I was so non-eloquently trying to make was that the copy is just a small part of the success of any project.
There are several other MUCH more important things you need to get right first.
And if you know these, you can make a LOT of money with even half-assed copy.
I know… because I have.
And still am in a couple different niches.
Could I make more money with better copy?
And I will… in due time.
In the meantime, I simply followed the advice of my mentor…
“You don’t have to get it perfect,
you just have to get it going.”
– Gary Halbert
I got these projects GOING. That is the most important part.
Improving them is an ongoing process.
But before you can get anything going… you have to know a few simple “marketing secrets of the masters.”
And that is EXACTLY what I’m going to reveal to you.
Here’s the deal:
I’m going to start a brand new kitchen table business… and I’m gonna let you in on it.
By the way… what I call a “kitchen table business” is this…
A part-time business you can start on the cheap… either on your kitchen table or online… and you can make a nice side income with very little investment of your time.
An income that keeps coming in month after month… but only takes a couple hours a week to run.
And if you know how to do it, many of these projects can be turned into 6-figure or even 7-figure businesses.
Nowadays I usually start these projects online first and then take them offline for even more money.
Usually… but not always.
As a matter of fact, a recent project for a client was done for direct mail ONLY… and it’s gonna make an absolute FORTUNE as soon as he starts rolling out.
Anyhoo… like I said, I’m starting a new kitchen table project soon in a brand new niche.
AND I’m going to do something I’ve never done before.
I’m going to…
Let You “Look Over My Shoulder” During The Entire Process…
So You can Discover All My Best Money-Making Secrets!
This is the stuff I’ve only shared with a HANDFUL of people in my inner circle.
I’ve never shared it in my blog… and probably never will.
I enjoy writing my blog.
It’s my way of passing on many of the marketing secrets I’ve discovered from 16+ years in the wonderful world of mail order and direct response… and the secrets I learned working side by side with marketing legend, Gary Halbert.
But there’s a LOT more insider information I can reveal that goes way beyond the scope of this free blog.
And to be quite frank, I have to be really careful with whom I share this knowledge.
It’s much too powerful for me to let it get into the hands of some scumbag rip off artist.
See, this stuff is REALLY powerful.
I’m talking really high level persuasion secrets. (After all, that’s all marketing really is… persuasion.)
And like any other power, it can be used for good or evil… and be equally powerful for either.
Not to mention, there are a lot of secrets I gleaned from Halbert… especially for high income earners… that I am simply unwilling to publish in a public forum.
My trusted contacts around the globe don’t want their contact info posted online…
…And most important…
I don’t want this most sensitive information indexed and archived by Google and open to various wolves in sheep’s clothing and other low-life scumbags who make their living preying upon others.
So I’ve decided that the best way to reveal these insider secrets and sensitive information is to launch a premium service.
And to launch this new premium service, I’m going to let you look over my shoulder, step-by-step as I start my new business.
I won’t hold anything back.
You’ll discover my entire process for starting these “lifestyle” businesses.
If it brings in a ton of cash, you’ll know every tiny detail of how I did it.
If it totally flops… you’ll be right there with me… so we can BOTH learn from the experience and move on to something else that WILL work.
Other than my recent 8-week Kitchen Table Business coaching program, I’ve never gone this “deep” with anybody before and revealed all these inner circle secrets.
And month after month, I will continue to reveal my most effective success secrets amassed from years in the direct marketing trenches.
If you’ve never started a business in your life but dream of relaxed lifestyle only working a few hours a week…
…Or you already have a successful business and are looking to take it to the next level…
Then This is For YOU!
I SHOULD charge a hefty price for this… because it’s worth it.
But I want to make it accessible to anybody who sincerely wants to discover the secrets to living the same “lazy man’s way to riches” I’ve enjoyed since I declared my freedom from my J.O.B. (Journey Of the Broke) in 1997.
So it’s NOT going to cost a fortune.
In fact, the monthly investment will be approximately HALF of what you’d spend a day on a Starbucks coffee.
