“I got my first copywriting client that spent over £2,000 after just 8 weeks in the copywriting business.” Dilys Stokes

Writing copy has given me more in a day than I used to get paid in a month. This letter below explains everything in better detail. It also explains how you can also become a copywriter earning more in a day than you probably earn in a month.

Here’s the letter and video.

 


Dear Friend

I used to be a hairdresser. I was a hairdresser for over 20-years with my own salons in Cheshire.

One day in my salon I was doing a haircut. The haircut was a man named Richard. Richard is an accountant with his own practice.

During the haircut, Richard asked me a question. The question was this.

‘Alan, who does all of your marketing and writes those letters that come to my home?’

I replied, ‘I write them.’

He then looked at me strangely and asked me the second question.

‘Could you write some letters for my accounting business?’

I smiled and replied, ‘sure I can have a go for you.’

No money was agreed. I told Richard I would call them when I had written the letters for him.

I was nervous. Writing for myself was easy despite my lack of qualifications. Writing for someone else made me extremely nervous.

Finally in between clients I sat and wrote his letters.  It took me around an hour or so. I then called Richard to ask his address so I could put the letters on a floppy disc and mail them over.

Two days later Richard called me. He loved the letters but asked if the grammar would be fixed? I simply said yes despite the fact I had no idea what grammar was. I am not saying that with pride I am simply relating I was a hairdresser with zero formal education at this point.

I knew an old school teacher so I asked her what was grammar and could she fix it. Once the grammar had been fixed I called Richard. Finally, he arrived at the salon. I was with a client doing a haircut so I had to tell THE client, I would be just a couple of minutes while I took Richard upstairs.

Once we got into the small office I gave Richard the floppy disc with the finished letters and despite the fact no money had been agreed Richard handed me an envelope of cash with £1,500  in notes for his letters. I can tell you I had never seen this amount of real cash at one time and certainly never been paid anything like that for ONE HOUR of work!

Around a month later I had a call from Richard to tell me how well his mailings had gone and he would see me very soon.

More from One hours Writing Than A Months Pay!

In those days – 1995 – I was earning from my hairdressing business around £500 per week. It was good money then. Suddenly and shockingly I had been paid the large amount of £1,500 for one hours work.

I wrote three A4 letters or around 900 words.

My salon business was paying me £12.50 per hour.

I had just been handed £1,500 for one hours writing that felt nothing like work!

And I knew nothing about copywriting, had never heard of the word copywriting. All I knew was I had to write letters to keep my salon business busy. I could now write letters for clients to keep their business busy.

And the pay was ridiculous.

This was in 1995.

After that, I never gave writing for others a lot more thought, as I was busy with my own salons at this time.

Until that is I got asked again to write for a hair cosmetic company. Then I got asked if I could write for a car sales showroom. Then I started to have clients that had nothing to do with my salon walk into my salon and ask for a copywriter named Alan.

Then I got asked if I could write for a car sales showroom. Then I started to have clients that had nothing to do with my salon walk into my salon and ask for a copywriter named Alan.

Then a landscaping company got in touch.

Then a solicitor also called me.

There were, of course, many more in those early days.

Then I started to have clients that had nothing to do with my salon walk into my salon and ask for a copywriter named Alan.

People were now walking into my salon looking for a copywriter named Alan. My staff never had a clue who these people were asking for so I had to inform them that I had another business that I did part-time upstairs.

This new accidental part-time business was now paying me more than my salons. By the year 1999/2000, I had been recruited to work alongside the great copywriter Michel Fortin. By the year 2001 I had to seriously consider selling my salons or dropping out of writing as they were both in conflict with time.

By 2003 I had sold my salons and was writing for some of the world’s biggest best-known marketers and companies globally. By the year 2006, my copywriting business had become a full-time occupation.

Now the next bit I am going to share with you isn’t to show off it is to show you what is possible despite having no training and no idea on the accuracies of grammar.

By 2008 I had travelled around the globe around six times. Worked and spoken with the likes of Jay Abraham, Brendon Bruchard, Armand Morin. T. Harv Eker and literally a massive who’s who of business.

By 2008 I had also met me own marketing hero Jay Conrad Levinson in Atlanta Georgia USA. We were to become good friends.

By 2016 I have sent out invoices for copy and strategy as high as £74,000 for a single job. Last year when I was planning my proposal and marriage to my wife Tamuna I did one small job simply to pay for the rings and the wedding in New York. Recently while in the gym I got paid £3,000 in advance whilst working out.

Copywriting even saved my life – literally after a devastating divorce.

I have been paid money that as a hairdresser I could only have ever dreamt about. I live and have created a life on my own terms. I no longer chase clients in fact I work only with one or two clients annually. This gives me more income than I could ever wish for.

Again I am not telling you this to show off I am simply telling you what happened.

All the odds were stacked against me. I had no education. I was a hairdresser. I had no writing experience. I had no copywriting training. And yet somehow I ended up as a respected copywriter that has written for well over 400 industries, has taught well over 25,000 people has now run a mentor program since 2004 and has written literally dozens of best-selling sales letters whilst making some of my clients very rich indeed.

How did this all happen?

I’m not sure so here is what I do know. I started writing blindly so I could get my salon busy.

Someone saw what I was doing and asked me to do the same for his business. That grew and grew until it became my new life and business.

Was it hard to do?

Not really and looking back there was one thing I did that gave me the edge, the advantage and the key to becoming what others would proclaim a brilliant copywriter.

Can You Do This – Write and Get Paid?

Despite the fact, I don’t know you personally I will say yes you can become a copywriter based on what I have done myself. And not only what I have done what my students had done over the years.

One of my students pulled off something incredible which gave him over $90,000 in just 12-weeks. Another got her first clients at an invoiced £2,000. Yet another not only got his fist client but charged that client over £4,000.

All had one thing in common.

All had no previous experience and all had regular jobs before they became copywriters full-time.

There’s more I’d like to share with you and it’s this.

In the UK alone there are over four million businesses. All of those businesses need a copywriter. In the USA the number is far higher in the tens of millions.

I can show you how to filter through those huge numbers and find clients that will happily pay you more in a week that you could ever earn in 6-months.

Or I can show you how to replace your wage by getting paid to write.

Or I can show how to get paid a decent amount working part-time when and how you want.

And it isn’t as hard or as tough or as complicated as some might tell you.

All you need is this.

A mentor that can take you a faster route otherwise it can take years and years.

A mentor with real business, real copy, real training experience.

A computer.

Some pens and pads.

A phone.

And these days you don’t even need a website. It’s my opinion that service website formats have changed dramatically so you can get this started with a simple Facebook page and started in hours.

I’m more than happy to share with you how I did it and how you can easily become a copywriter.

Can You Become a Copywriter?

£10,000 INVOICE: Recently a new copywriter on my program did something that he has never done in his life. He sent out an invoice for £10,000. This guy is used to sending out invoices for £250! When he first came to me to be mentored I had to help him price up a client. His price was around $400 USA. I showed him everything I know about getting paid more. He then sent out his invoice for £2,000 and got his new client. He has left his job and is now a fulltime copywriter.

BIG CLIENT: Another mentor copywriter client of mine really wanted a big hit. He was also starting from scratch so he had a lot to discover about how this business works. His client was big and I mean very big. He wanted me to show him how to get this one big target as a client. I doubted to be frank but we put together a way to do this. The client was a BMW garage. So my mentor student did exactly as I showed him. We refined the campaign until it was right. He got a call from the client to go for a visit so they could discuss their needs. He now works part-time as a copywriter.

FIRST BIG CLIENT: A lady came to me after being made redundant from the bank. She became a mentor student of mine. After just eight weeks working with myself she had made more in a single day than she used to get paid in the bank per month. The first invoice she sent out to a client with my help was for £1,995. The client agreed and within just 8 weeks of starting her mentoring she had pulled in well over a months previous wage. She now works as a copywriter.

$90,000: This mentor student flew from Sydney Australia to work with me. His fee and his travel and accommodation cost over $25,000 AUD. This payment was all on loan. Within 12 weeks of working with me as a new copywriter not only had he invoiced well over six-figures but he had taken in and banked over $90,000. He now works as a fulltime copywriter.

Time right now doesn’t allow me to go on and on but I will tell you these guys all had one thing in common with myself.

  • All had to learn from scratch
  • All had to start somewhere
  • All had to make a career change
  • All now get paid for writing and all can take their skills and their office anywhere in the world at anytime.

So yes being a copywriter can change everything for you like it did for the guys above. It can give you whatever you need in life. Not all new copywriters make a ton day in day out but you can easily replace your income and create Just imagine if you could change everything in your life over the next 12 months. Then imagine yourself doing what you want, having the freedom to do what you want whilst getting paid to do as you want. Does that sound perfect?

That’s exactly what I have done for years and show my copywriting mentor students just like yourself to do also.

I have travelled the world and been paid massive amounts for writing words. In fact I have probably been paid more in a week than you have been paid in a year… I can show you how you can copy how to do that!

Don’t worry I also started from scratch in fact I used to be a hairdresser. I understand huge changes and will show you how I went from start-up copywriter to writing for the likes of Jay Abraham in months and many other huge direct marketing experts including the genius Jay Conrad Levinson.

I’ll guide you. I’ll show you. I’ll teach you. I’ll inform you. I’ll mold you. I’ll give you everything you need to copy the very-fast copywriting success I personally achieved and have today!

MENTOR is a life change – not just a course so be prepared to cover things you will not have covered before with anyone. I can’t reveal everything on this page as I don’t want to give too much away to my competition but …

  • I’ll show you how I got high-end clients paying tens of thousands of pounds for a piece and how you can easily copy what I did
  • I’ll show you how I got paid commisions for life
  • I’ll show you how I built my copywriting business from zero into a mini-empire of goliath proporations and how you can do the same
  • I will show you how I get paid hundreds of dollars per single word
  • I will show you how I find those clients with money and how you copy what I did
  • I will show you how I built a wonderful life around using and mastering words despite failing anything word based, grammar or English related at school
  • How I became the number one choice for copywriter for high-spend clients and how you can follow my paths to high-demand!
  • You’ll be positioned as an ELITE copywriter
  • You’ll be featured in my personal online hall of fame for everyone to see
  • You’ll be branded as the ONLY option for copywriting
  • You’ll have the ability to be charging anything from $2,000 to $20,000 per piece eventually
  • You’ll discover how to get clients coming to you, not you struggling to find the copy work
  • You’ll have the chance to come to my home where we’ll plan, strategize, create powerful tactics, brand, position and launch your new ELITE copywriting career

So how is your life or your job right now?

Do you feel you need more from your life? Are you sick of doing the five day week with long hours? Are you done with the long drive into the office or wherever you work?

Do you like the idea of having an ability to slowly (or quickly) start a real business where you can potentially get paid as much as £1,500 per hour?

Do you like the idea of working the hours you’d love to work? How does the idea of going out and paying for cash the latest Apple mac computer or just having the time and money to relax a little more knowing you can top up your cash with another small writing job when and as you like to?

Writing Copy Can Be The Best Job In The World!

There are a lot of really good and very happy reasons you’d love being a copywriter or having the ability to create really strong copy.

  • You get paid really well
  • You can pick and choose your work
  • You can live in a great home and afford it
  • You can buy all the gadgets you want and write your campaigns in a cave if that turns you on
  • You can leave your office and spend a day thinking and drinking coffee
  • You can travel and not worry about getting back for work
  • You can nip out each day and sit in cafes drinking coffee all day
  • You can afford the latest Apple everything
  • You can afford to stay fit, stay healthy and even afford the time to exercise each day
  • You can buy a place abroad and invite pals or hide out to write
  • You can go away for the summer or go away for the winter
  • You can spend weeks just thinking about writing and get paid to think
  • You can work one week and take two off
  • You can write anywhere, anytime and anyhow and still get paid
  • If you want to work one day a week you can
  • If you want to work 7-days a week you can
  • If you want to work flat out for a year and then do nothing for a year you can
  • You can become an author
  • You can become a public speaker
  • You can become the company hero that creates the biggest campaigns ever
  • Copywriting gives you freedom and a lifestyle that will bring you admiration and fame!

How do I know you can get that?

Well, the above is a snap-shot of my own life and if it wasn’t for writing copy and getting paid very well for writing words, I’d probably still be a tired, worn-out, unfit, back-broken hairdresser praying for retirement.

My life has been designed, my income has been designed to support the life I want to live and … to give clients results that they cannot survive without. Is that what you’d like?

An Annual Opportunity To Be Mentored … Is this a perfect opportunity for you?

Here’s what I will tell you.

You are about to learn a skill that could literally change everything for you – including your wealth situation.

  • Yes, it takes work.
  • Yes, it takes learning.
  • Yes, it takes time.

But you are going to discover a skill that is with you for life and even gives you the skills to build an empire if you want to do that in the future.

Millions of Business Are Searching For Copywriters

But right now for around 2-3 hours a week you can learn everything you need to know to start tapping into a huge wealth of business on your own doorstep. Remember almost five million businesses in the UK right now need you and tens of millions in the USA and other locations.

They are searching daily online for “copywriter”. You can easily be the copywriter they find and the copywriter that’s gets paid.

Would you like that? When I say that I mean the ability to earn more from one copy job than you probably get paid every month?

And by the way, I have been paid huge amounts I couldn’t even put on this page right now for fear of over-sharing my private life.

Would You Like To Be MENTORED to become a copywriter by myself?

I only want you to commit if you feel you can spare a couple of hours weekly, you promise to go through the DVD training and you commit yourself to learning.

I only want you to commit if you understand I cannot save you or your life I can only share with you what has served my life over a couple of decades for a greater good.

I only want you to join me if you need change, want change and are happy to copy everything I share with you and practice what I teach you.

And my guarantee has never once changed and it is this.

I do not offer a refund of any kind. My reputation is long and strong and even acclaimed by experts time and time again. I know what I teach works and has worked for many students of mine over the years. I know what I teach has built me a life that others would just die for. I know the information I am going to share with you could change your life because it has changed mentor students lives over the years. It is highly valuable training, life training and the kind of training you simply won’t get on any average copywriting course.

And by the way – I deal with dozens upon dozens of copywriters that have trained with other trainers and still cannot build a business so they come to me to crack their own business code.

FROM SMALL TOWN HAIRDRESSER TO GLOBALLY KNOW COPYWRITER AND MARKETING EXPERT … IT ALL STARTED SOMEWHERE WITH NO EXPERIENCE

Since leaving hairdressing in 2003 I have travelled the world. My clients are based many different countries. One client flew me to Switzerland to work with them. Another flew me to Australia but mostly I work from home. I start when I am ready to start each day usually around 10am but only after we have been out for coffee. If we want to go to our other home in Tbilisi Georgia I simply pack my bags and jump on a plane with my wife. I travel with an iPad only, that is enough for what I do.

The last time we were in Tbilisi I was in the gym. I agreed to via text to do a small job for a client. The job was a simple copywriting piece that took me less than half a day because he was already a client. He sent me £3,000 into PayPal as I lifted weights. I will show you how to set up and copy a perfect system I know for working like that.

Mostly I work flat out on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. The other days I work on other projects outside writing if I want to. If I don’t want to I simply don’t. I earn more money that what are called premium jobs like Dentists, Lawyers and much more.

Q&A

A: I had someone ask me if I really get AWAI (the Holy Grail) copywriters coming to me because they still cannot build a business AFTER completing their course? The first answer is yes that is true – 50% of my new writers have also done AWAI yet still, cannot build a business.

So here is the rest of the Q&A for those wanting to GET PAID TO WRITE.

People interested in getting paid to write ask, so rather than answer you all one at a time… Here we go in one swoop

A: Yes I show you how to get clients but not the way that you might have been taught. I teach my guys to charge well and serve well. This takes a different approach to getting clients but the same tested approach I have used for decades.

A: Yes I show you how to deal with clients. Dealing with clients can have it’s moments yet I have been dealing with people one-on-one since 1982. I can show you how to deal with everyone you deal with so you have no fears.

A: Yes I show you how to close clients. My new copywriters are usually blown away when I show them my responses and briefs to clients. They are very long, proven and ultra-effective when it comes to closing the deal. I will give you samples you can use in your new writing business.

A: Yes I show you how to price up jobs using a process that has you understanding your value and knowing your price per hour. This is a long-time-tested process that makes pricing very easy (cheap is not an option I teach)

A: Yes I will show you how to quickly create a writing business that could replace your current income. I have a new writer that went on to generate over $90,000 within 12 weeks of his mentoring. I will share how he did that and how you can copy what he did. His story is below for you.

A: Location isn’t a problem. Most of my new writers are based in the USA, Australia and other distant places. Distance I, not a problem. We simply set up times to suit you.

A: Yes I can do your training short or longer. This affects the fee of course. If you need mentoring for one month or for one year we will price accordingly.

A: Yes you can call into my offices, or arrange a call to answer any questions you might have.

Any more questions on getting paid to write please ask.

Remember space is very limited so if this is for you take action fast.

And don’t worry I will be holding your hand every step of the way.

REFERENCES FROM CLIENTS.

Some of my new MENTOR copywriters earn well over SIX-FIGURES working with just one or two clients per year. Others earn as much as £2-5,000 per job. That is your choice. Either way, it’s a brilliant way to earn huge amounts of money. I will show you how to do the same!

From Mentor Copywriter Neil Shepard

I don’t know about you, but being a freelancer in any business can be lonely at times. Even more so as a copywriter… why is that?

Well, for me freelance copywriters are almost crazy…

I mean who would want to lock themselves away from life for hours, days, weeks, even months at a time trying to understand every type of business that comes across our desks.

Most business owners don’t appreciate the time and brainpower that goes into a campaign that sells.

Sometimes we can get lost in our own business… and that can be costly.

That’s why being involved with Alan is a smart investment.

Because having someone with a proven track record of delivering results for 31 years in the real world of business (not textbook theory) carefully and strategically dissecting my business was priceless…

For example… during the mastermind weekend, I was getting advice and solutions to a specific problem in my business and a way to solve them fast.

Mentor has given me plenty to think about, and a precise plan of action to ensure I get there.  Plus and this is a BIG plus – copious amounts of espressos were consumed!

Thanks, Alan – this changes everything

I’ve worked with a number of copy coaches and I’ve read a tonne of books on sales copy,but the biggest leaps in my knowledge on how to write words that sell and put cash in my client’s pockets have come from Alan Forrest.

He cuts right the chase of what makes a sales message sell. And he holds nothing back.
He tells you all his secrets/strategies that make millions for his clients.
If you want to discover how to write copy for clients that gets them begging you to work with them again…So you can ramp up your fees as an in-demand writing pro…

Thanks, Alan.

From Mentor Gary Spinks

As you know, I study what’s out there and have invested in different ways over the years to develop myself and the business. What is out there at the moment is a lot of noise, misinformation, formula-based products, get-rich-quick schemes and template-style “done for you” services. And it’s easy for people to get sucked into that feeling that these widely promoted offers will provide the answers and be the magic silver bullet for success.

When I listen to you talk about business, the way you work and what works it’s a very different experience. It’s a reality check. It’s a more realistic and genuine conversation. You’ve made me think. You’ve made me question things I took to be ‘truth’. You’ve made me dig deeper into what I really want and how to make that happen. There are challenges ahead to go with all that yet I feel inspired and encouraged to keep pushing the bar higher.

This weekend was not so much about the art of copywriting, designing ads or a ‘how to’ of direct marketing (though you did share some neat insights on the practical side of creating the sales message). No, this weekend went deeper. It was about the business of being a different kind of copywriter, a different kind of strategist, a different kind of marketer.

The Mastermind reinforced and built on my learning during your MENTOR programme. I value your advice, suggestions and feedback. The rest is now down to me.

Thanks, Gary.

Meet Kevin

My name is Kevin Lewis, you’ll probably have seen my name, and my picture (I’ve grown my hair since then, it was shaved, I’m not bald!) on Alan’s website, along with a snippet of the HUGE email I sent him when I had success after attending Alan’s Master class. I was very excited when I sent that email, but I think anyone would have been after seeing a result like this!

This Is My Own True Story About Mentoring With Alan. It’s True!

The reason I’m writing to you directly – off my own steam in no way coerced by Alan – is I know exactly what you’re thinking when you read my story, and the story of Alan’s other students, you think it’s hype, over exaggerated, or just complete BS!

If you’re anything like me you do anyway, because this is exactly what I thought when I was reading success stories & considering investing in Alan’s course. (Sorry Alan, but at least I’m honest.

Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t think Alan was a Liar, or that his students were – but really I didn’t think that good marketing could make any difference to small businesses selling physical products, sure copywriting and marketing works to sell eBooks or courses, but I just didn’t see how it could apply to most normal businesses – and although I do also have online businesses & projects which I thought copywriting might help with, the business I had all of my money in & that accounted for the majority of my income (and still does) is a company selling specialist printing equipment, big heavy stuff that has to be delivered & certainly can’t be downloaded, I just didn’t think that the stuff Alan teaches was relevant to normal everyday businesses.

Alan told me (in no uncertain terms!) that I was wrong.

I love reading my story when Alan includes it on the orange beetle website, so I can re-live the excitement of watching a business literally explode to life from something as simple as sending out an email! I know a lot of people read that & think it’s hype & BS, at the last seminar I attended, a few of the guys were asking me if what they read on Alan’s site about my success from “the email” was really true, and I could see the scepticism on their faces, but I don’t blame them, I wouldn’t have believed it either – which is why I wanted to write this message to you, directly….To ensure you that it really DID happen, pretty much exactly as Alan recalls.Business HAS GROWN Very Quickly

I remember it vividly, since then the business has grown very quickly, so I now have a few staff, much larger offices & warehouse – but back then (just 18 months ago) I was in a tiny office, on my own. It was only the companies sixth month in business, and this was the quietest month of the year, I knew it would be, but it didn’t change the fact that unless I pulled in a good few grand in that month I’d be stuffed!

I was sat staring out of the window, watching the ducks on the canal, surfing the internet, drinking probably my 7th coffee of the day, trying to stay awake, and occasionally staring at the phone & willing it to ring, pressing send & receive over & over again hoping for an interesting email – when suddenly (a few minutes after sending the email) I started to get replies asking for quotes.

I was literally inundated & spent the rest of the day, and all night, replying with quotes.

I did around 50 that day, which was much more than I was doing in a whole month previously! I took over £10k (nearly $20K in USD) in sales within the next few days, thus getting me nicely out of a potential cash flow crisis, and then went on to have the best month of the year so far – in what would usually be the worst month! It’s hard to say exactly how much I pulled in overall from that one email, as sales continued to come in from that email & from future emails, but I’ve worked it out to be around £50,000 in total (not far off $100,000), possibly more.

Alan was right!

The company has grown quickly since then, but if I hadn’t learned to communicate effectively with my list – and to build the list – I honestly believe the company would have failed, either before or not long after 12 months!

Simply because most of our sales come from the list, and regardless of how much money I spent on full-page ads in targeted magazines, Google AdWords & all the other forms of advertising I was throwing money into before, none of it came anywhere near close to generating the amount of business that the list does! Which is a real turn-around, because before the course the list brought in very little business.

We now have close to 3,000 on the list, and nearly 1100 customers, every time I send a mail to the list that the number of customers increases and the list size is increasing on a daily basis.

I’m constantly being told by customers that they started purchasing from us & continue to do so, because of the emails I send them. Many of them joke about me pestering them & finally breaking them when they decide that they’ll phone me & place an order – and I’m always being told by customers of how much they like my emails, and some even tell me they look forward to them!

This is a big change from getting snotty emails & abusive phone calls when I send a mail to the list – and a load of unsubscribes – which is what used to happen before, even though I used to mail the list a lot less frequently than I do now!

I’m not saying that my business is perfect, I’m not a multi-millionaire YET ;-), and I wish Alan also held courses on decreasing overheads, increasing Nett profit, and managing staff!

A Dramatic Difference To My Business

But what I am saying, unequivocally, is that what Alan has taught me, has made a dramatic difference to my business, has helped me to make over £600,000 in sales since taking the course, and is the main reason the company is doing so well. Without learning how to communicate properly with my list (and a lot more besides) I’m quite confident my business would have failed, and I would be now be trapped into working for someone else!

Meet Steve

I borrowed $25,000 from my mother, then flew from Sydney, Australia, to Manchester England to train with Alan! Within 12 weeks of my training “I had lined up $90,000 worth of work “

Read what I really think about Alan’s training below!

Hey mate,

After we were talking on the phone the other day I got to thinking about the last couple of years since we first met… and about what being trained by you has done for me in that time.

It’s pretty crazy and amazing really so I just wanted to share it with you in writing so that if you want to share it with others you can… and they can get a real insight into how great of a bloke you are and how you’ve got the goods to help them too.

A Lot to be Thankful for…

I’ve a lot to be thankful for as a result of knowing and being mentored by you and I know they will be too if they take the chance to attend one of your programs.

Obviously, when we met back in 2005 I was a complete novice when it came to advertising, copywriting and marketing – I knew nothing. The first material I’d literally ever read on any of those topics was the material you and Brett sent me as a thank you for signing up for the Advertising Masterclass. You couldn’t find someone who knew less about those topics than me.

As you know, I left at the end of that weekend of the Masterclass with you certain I had everything I could ever need to know to make a fantastic living writing great ads and creating successful businesses using it. I assured you I’d be a success as a result.

To keep this short… here we are in 2007 and looking back in hindsight I’ve been through a lot, achieved a load and have a lot to be thankful for as a result of everything you’ve done for me.

You know that within 12 weeks of the Masterclass I was working with some of the biggest direct marketing entrepreneurs in Australia… as well as doing jobs for you and your clients.

$90,000 Within Weeks

And I remember our chat when I had lined up $90,000 worth of work in those 12 weeks too. Life was phenomenal for me… couldn’t stop smiling and laughing about the cash on offer and all the while I’m working when I want and cruising down to the beach for a swim and relax with my mates on weekdays whenever they were free from their 40 or 60hr/week jobs.

Less than a year later I’m heading over to England on your invitation to speak at your next Masterclass. I knew I’d earned it because of the hard work I’d done but couldn’t believe I was flying across the world to speak beside you at your seminars.

These days I’m working with entrepreneurs and businesses across the world, Australia, the U.S, the UK making great money (one job I’m about to start is making me more in 4 days than I’d get paid for 2 months of work in a top business firm here in Dublin)!

Busy Making Money

And on top of my own work, I’m busy with joint

ventures with partners overseas as well as just having launched a new company with a business partner in America that’s going to be super-profitable for me.

But more importantly than all the business success I have to thank you for, it’s the freedom in life that’s the true gift.

I have a freedom in my life that most people will never have.

You know I love doing my martial arts training. I’ve been able to go to Japan to train several times in the last few years and could literally go and live there if I wanted because I can set up my business anywhere and work from anywhere. How many people can do that?

Over the last couple of years, I’ve taken trips to different places around the world to visit friends from other countries. I’ve literally just done this when I’ve felt like it with little or no interruption to my business. How many people can do that?

And most important, as you know I was just recently able to relocate overseas to live with my girlfriend with very little hassle. How many people can do that?

How many people can do these things, literally just up and move their entire lives overseas without it affecting their businesses at all? Well, I could and it’s thanks to you more than anyone else.

My Lifestyle … AWESOME!

Almost everyone I meet who asks what I do thinks my lifestyle sounds awesome – many are straight up jealous. I tell them they could have it too, they just have to do what I have and find someone like you who knows what they’re talking about and really cares.

I could go on for ages but you know the deal. Like everything else in life, business is a game that has it’s up and downs. It’s no secret that the most successful people in life have failed more times than they’ve succeeded. A large factor in creating that success is who they’ve got beside them as mentors and allies. I wouldn’t have it any other way than having you beside me as mine.

  • You’ve Been There So I Succeeded
  • You’ve been there for me over the last couple of years more than I ever expected.
  • When I’ve needed help, advice or guidance – I’ve got it.
  • When I’ve suffered a setback and needed a friend who understands what I’m going through – I’ve got it.
  • And when I’ve had a major success or achieved a goal – I’ve got it.

All from you. I simply can’t say thank you enough for that.

On top of all of this, what’s even more amazing is that in working with you, I’m still learning from you every time we talk… even after 2 ½ years. (If that’s not proof of how much you know and have to offer then I don’t know what is).

I’ll wrap this up now as it’s already too long. I wanted it to be something others could quickly read and understand that you’re a class act all round… as a copywriter and marketer, as a business teacher and mentor, and more importantly as a person.

I consider myself VERY LUCKY to have had the benefit of both learnings from you and working with you.

I consider myself very lucky to have had the benefit of both learnings from you and working with you. And even more so, I consider myself lucky to have you as a friend.

Thanks for everything… and here’s to an even brighter future for us both (along with everyone else smart enough to do business with us)! ;)

Meet Caroline

This is Caroline Sanderson. I’m an on-going MENTOR student of Alan’s.

One year ago I took the plunge and entered MENTOR with Alan.

I had to fight back the ‘I can’t afford it demons’ and go for it because I knew if I wanted real fast track change with my hair salon I needed to invest and spend time with someone who had been there done it.

I can hardly believe the change in not only my business but in ME.

Alan’s strategies and advice with guidance and fun along the way took my business to a52% rise in one year. It would have been more but I had to make HUGE decisions along the way to create the

salon of my dreams which meant having the confidence to make changes and get the people out who i knew deep down were not right for me and my business in the long term.

I don’t know how long it would have taken me to make these changes without Alan’s support. ‘GO FOR IT. (if ever)

With Alan’s support, I made the changes and STILL made the 52% growth.

I have taken what Alan has taught me with my own skills and knowledge and have not only taken my business to near full capacity but he have given me a better understanding of business and I am just about to launch 2 big projects out with the salon.

I now have the confidence and knowledge to push my career forward and create the work life I want… He has genius ideas that were so inspiring I didn’t take much time to get excited and start putting them into action.

Anyone thinking of working with Alan I would say go for it. There’s absolutely no question – It will change your life like it did mine.

Meet Neil

Dear Friend,

It all started with an email Not just any email An email from ALAN FORREST SMITH

The email contained an important message that would ultimately change my life and business forever… More on that in a minute… Please allow me to introduce myself my name’s Neil Shepherd, my client’s call me ‘The Email Specialist’ I’m guessing that’s because my emails

• GRAB ATTENTION

• GET READ

• CONVERT

Back to the email from Alan You see, there was an opportunity to spend 2 days at Alan’s home focusing on my business…

The problem was I had NO money to book my place and I couldn’t borrow any more because of

• 2 Maxed out credit cards

• Overdraft at bursting point

• 2 personal loans

• Car on finance

• Big mortgage

Not to mention 3 people depending on me (my gorgeous Fiancé Samantha our two girls Amy aged 9 and Katie aged 6) That would put most people off wouldn’t it?

So how did I find the money? I made it my fierce goal to work relentlessly over the coming months, it wasn’t easy but I managed to do it

Meeting Alan in person was an experience I’ll never forget he genuinely cares about you and listens to your problems and gives honest and helpful advice Here I was sitting in his kitchen drinking coffee and chatting… How many trainers pull back the curtains and let you see inside their home?

It wasn’t all smiles though Alan kindly ripped my business apart and revealed exactly where I was haemorrhaging money and how I could rebuild it a better way

Here’s how those 2 days mentoring with Alan was the BEST investment I’ve made

1. I’ve raised my fees and no longer feel bad about sending invoices

2. I’ve started getting paid at least 50% upfront on projects (I use to wait 30 days and then have to chase invoices)

3. I’m writing every day

4. My websites have been tweaked and converting better

5. I’m more confident talking with clients

6. My copy flows better

7. I manage my time

Alan can show you how to do this and more… Let me finish with… If you’re sitting on the fence and procrastinating about mentor with Alan ask yourself this very important question… “How much is it costing you NOT being mentored by Alan?” Call Alan today because it could CHANGE everything for you

Talk soon

Neil Shepherd

Meet Johnny

“Alan, mentor is by far the best business decision I have made. Having flown up from Devon to meet you I now feel that this is not just another one of those fleeting programs. So far I have been able to press the reset button for success with your help and guidance.

My relationships at home and with my family have taken a turn for the better. I have been able to 
put in some solid foundation blocks on which I will build a fortress for
the future. The path ahead is very much clearer than it was 6 weeks ago
 and I feel a large surge in confidence as I move ahead.

Thanks, Alan and team! For many of you who may be considering entering into a mentoring arrangement with Alan, please allow me to help clarify what may be ahead for you….and for your life…. If, like I was only 6 months ago, you find yourself at a crossroads in life where, for the first time, for maybe one or a multitude of reasons, you’re experiencing the desire to make significant and long-lasting changes to not only what it is you do for a living, but how you live and the reasons why then Alan is the answer. 
From our starting point together just a few months ago, Alan and I have created a magical and highly productive bond together, one that has allowed me to create a new direction in my life, and to approach that direction with certainty and the belief that I can achieve what it is I desire.

Rest assured, nothing is ever achieved without a lot of hard work, commitment and strategic thinking. 
For my own experience, Alan has been instrumental in bringing out the best in what it is that I want to achieve in my business life…by bringing out the best in me.

This hasn’t been achieved without a commitment on both of our parts to do what it takes to communicate openly and to have flexible schedules in working together (especially as we’re located across the world from each other.) Yes, it’s been a journey of detailed emails, early morning and late evening conversations, and strategic thinking together, all in a respectful and non-judgmental manner. 
The results have been incredible for myself, as I’ve experienced and created a new business path, including what I now want to do, how I want to do it, while believing that I can achieve the lifestyle and life results that for far too long eluded me. The possibilities ahead of me are endless and I believe highly profitable.

The lifestyle which I know I’ll be experiencing, thanks to Alan’s insightful guidance, is something that everyone should be able to attain in their lifetime. And they can…with the right skills, systems and beliefs. If you’ve read this far, you’re probably the right type of person to work with Alan, and he’s probably right for you. 
But, I must say, be ready for it, because if you do what it takes, and follow his recommendations, the journey will be transformational and unforgettable! All the best to you….here’s to your future!

Meet Sian

Wow – what an amazing year in between has been for me and my family. This is my story…
This time last year I was proud to have worked my way up through local government and have the posh car and the salary that let me spend my annual leave zonked out in luxury for 3 weeks recovering from my manic work life.

And the salary also had to pay for all the gadgets and home help needed to keep the house running while I pulled the long hours in the office and stuck in committees. Now that seems such a strange way to carry on but it wasn’t planned it just evolved as the promotions and pressures build.

So what could possibly happen in one weekend to make me turn around my life of 20 years in a council?

That’s one of the big points for me – it didn’t all happen in one weekend. It’s been an ongoing process over a wild year with Orangebeetle. The seeds were planted over those 3 days so I could see different future. Alan and his team were so open about how their lives and careers had evolved and the changes they’d made that it showed me I could make an 180 turn around.

I went to my first Masterclass because I wanted to write, it had always been a dream for me at the back of my mind but I’d never taken it any further, partly because of fear of failure (I now understand) but also because it just didn’t seem possible for me, writing and copywriting was something other people did and I wouldn’t have the skills or the ability, would I?

I didn’t leave the Masterclass on Monday evening a copywriter. I walked out with all the skills and knowledge, a plan, real life ideas on how to get started, Alan’s phone number and a forum to give me support to not only get me going but share ideas along the way.

Leaving employment isn’t just about changing how you pay tax – you also have to learn how to structure your day without a boss and find and deal with clients. You need the right approach and the Masterclass showed me precisely how to do this, not just with a few woolly ideas but solid information, facts, examples and templates of using.

This 21st February 2009 I flew to Dublin with the team to take part in a huge event and when Alan introduced me from the stage and told the entire audience I was a copywriter with his team I really knew deep down inside that the old corporate greying Sian had finally left and so had my fear.

I now understand how much fear of failure and the need to be secure had kept me in a stifling job for 20 YEARS!! But Alan’s shown me how to bring out of it everything I’ve learnt and applied it in a different way.

From that one Masterclass I learnt everything I needed to be a copywriter – all the writing tricks and skills are mine now; we demystified marketing, business and dealing with clients and I realised I could already do this stuff, I didn’t need marketing degrees or 30 years experience in an advertising firm, I just needed the right approach and the tools to get the thinking going in the right direction.

In the last year I’ve had articles published, been invited to write for websites, built two websites, joined an online marketing group, reviewed websites to increase sales, had 3 offers to business partner and I’m on track to earn 100K this year from copywriting.

Instead of the 3 weeks collapse during my annual leave, I’m now looking forward to trips to Malaysia, the Amazon travelling the world and writing as the mood takes me and spending long lazy days in our French retreat.

From Alan’s Masterclass … I’ve learnt how to enjoy my life.

Sian Murphy
