Direct Response Copywriting and Marketing From Alan Forrest Smith

It’s NEVER been harder to get your advertising message across and here’s why.

In todays social-click-connected-like-unlike world every word you say has to count. The mind of your buyer is busy and struggles to make a choice. Your copywriter, your graphics guys and your team MUST get it right.

Saying less is now the new saying more. Images are the new words and words have to be shorter, more direct than ever before.

Your brand, your mission, your images, your message … I used to say you have 3-seconds – today I would say you have 0.1 Nano second to grab them, hook them and get their attention. It’s crazy I know.


 Say it wrong you get ignored.

Say it right you build a fan base and for you that means more sales.

And look at how your customers now read.

Not one screen but two, three and even four screens being watched as a text pings and messenger beeps and all screaming for attention.

Never has there been a more important time to get your copy absolutely right.

Never has there been a more important time to get creative and deliver IMPACT.

  • Yes – sales letters still work
  • Yes – advertising still works
  • Yes – marketing still works

But if you are not tuned in to the way your buyer reads, thinks and sees everything in the 21st century (so far).

  • Beyoncé recently sold million of albums without a single advert. How? Instagram.
  • Radiohead recently sold millions of albums by giving them away for FREE. How? By getting creative.
  • Prince filled the o2 arena for 21 days by giving away his new double album. Why? To sell millions in pounds of seats.

It’s creative, smart and tapping into the 21st century thinking which his fast and changing no longer by the year but by the hour.

This world of advertising today is different – it has changed. Quick, smart, impulsive and creative.

I might have been doing this direct marketing and copywriting stuff for 30 years or more but one thing I do have is a reputation for is getting creative and building higher-impact sales campaigns.

Thank God my clients agree with me as their numbers testify.

  • Roy increased his online sales by 2,300% in a week
  • Nicola saw a leap of 900% in her book sales.
  • Ste saw an increase of services sales by £74,000
  • Greg went from $15,000 to sales of over $88,400 with one email!

  • Rob had a 47% response rate from a direct mail campaign that pulled £800,000 plus.
