Behind The Scenes Training From a Respected Copywriting Master With a Proven Track Record of Getting Big Clients, Record Breaking Sales and Record Breaking Response Rates. During Mentor You Get Everything I Know About The Copywriting Business


Dear New Copywriter,

Just in case you don’t know me – I am copywriting veteran of three decades, I have written maybe over a dozen pieces of sales copy that generated well over one million in sales and I have written copy for my own businesses and over 400 other business that has ‘probably’ generated well over one hundred million in new sales over the years - EASILY!

My name is Alan Forrest Smith.

I was also a hairdresser for well over 20-years and started as a hired copywriter around the year 1996 whilst I was still cutting hair and working at least 60 hours a week.

 HERE’S A PHOTO OF ONE OF MY SALONS

HERE’S A PHOTO OF ONE OF MY SALONS

Here’s the story.

I wrote my first copy – a simple flyer – for my first business in 1985 although I wrote my first posters for my punk band in the late 70s.

By the year 1989, I opened my first high street business and had to create marketing for that business. One salon became three. Over that period I write and sent out literally hundreds of thousands of direct mail pieces, hundreds of thousands of flyers, vouchers and notices and some long-running newspaper Ads that never changed for over 15-years due to their success.

Due to the mass of marketing, I was doing (with no training – not a single piece) I had started to get noticed by a local business. They asked me to create mailers and other strategies for them.

During this process, I sold over £1.2 million in cars for on client. Over £800,000 for a small cosmetic business and literally sold a warehouse full of UPVC windows for another. I also sold Chinese imported tea, Oil from Israel, stop smoking products, accounting software and jewellery and tree services. During this period I was still a hairdresser.

By the year 2000 the demand for my services was so high I decided to sell my salons and make a career move. This led to enquiries flooding in from the likes of Jay Abraham and just about every other famous marketer (and copywriter) you can name.

I became great friends with them all being invited to wine and dine in different locations all over the world whilst getting paid incredible amounts to write for these clients. Earning an amount of £1,500 an hour was and still is not unusual for me as a copywriter. I once even jumped on a plane to head to a huge party/BBQ in Dallas where I ate and rank with the likes of John Carlton, Yanik Silver and literally a ton of other marketing greats. I wish I still had my one and only photo to share with you.

Being a Copywriter Is Life Changing

That is no exaggeration - it really, truly is. Learning the art and craft of being a copywriter changed, transformed and transported my life and the life of others on many, many occasions.

For example in 2010 I not only went through a crippling divorce but I entered a state of homelessness with no income and no anything. I wrote myself out of the situation using words. I have even written myself cars, houses and even a New York Wedding with my darling wife.

Today, I live in a luxury home in Cheshires golden triangle, I drive my car paid for in cash and I have everything and more than I need. It isn’t unusual for me and my wife to spend half a year outside the country where I still write and get paid during that period – if I want to.

Showing Off?… NO!

Now I am not telling you any of that to show off because if I was the page would be hundreds of pages long. I am telling you that to show you how a failed at school and then hairdresser can transform into a million dollar copywriter.

When I say a million-dollar copywriter I want to stress I have written and created at least 10 or more million plus letters I can think of right now but over the past three decades, it is probably more.

If I can do it believe me so can you.

I can also do my copywriting part-time or full-time. I can and do take on one big job a year. This job can and does support me for the whole of the summer. Of course, in return, I give my clients every ounce of value I can deliver.

How Do You Become a Copywriter?

I can only show you the way I did it because after all the way I did it was not only very different with less study and reading but it had more success than most copywriters I’ve ever known.

I got myself a MENTOR. My mentor was David Ogilvy. I read and studied everything I could about him. I copied his Adverts many times but changed them into my own Ads. Of course he was dead but better a dead genius teaching me than a half wit that is still alive.

The second thing I did was practice, practice and practice.

So to become a copywriter you should get yourself a copywriting mentor and relentlessly practice what you learn. A mentor gets you where you want to go faster and more direct. A copywriting mentor avoids painful and costly mistakes. A copywriting mentor will share with you a path already taken. This is the fastest option for you to become a copywriter.

BUT – going alone – takes far too long (sigh).

There is more to becoming a copywriter that you should also know apart from technique and copy or swiping another copywriter.

The second thing is the business side of things and the biggest question – how do I get clients. That is easy and easier than you might think.

Most copywriters sit and wait for their phone to ring. I will show you ways that I have used for decades to find and create the perfect deal for your perfect client.

This involves a process that ensures that not only do you persuade the clients to work with you but you persuade the client of your value.

This is powerful and will make the business of copywriting for you complete.

AND … we do this without any online efforts. No SEO, websites or social media. It’s pretty genius and works like crazy. (I don’t know a copywriter that does this - not one)

What Is AFS Copywriters Mentor?

It’s nothing new. I actually began to mentor others in 1989. My first mentor student (Kerry Dawson) went on to open her own very successful hair salon.

But new copywriters … I started working with other new copywriters as far back as 2004. Their backgrounds have been diverse. A Soldier, Doctor, Fitness guru, Scientist, Joiner, Nurse, Brick Layer, Ex-drug addict, Window Salesman, Airline staff, Agency marketer, Bank assistant, a Fish salesman, students, Kung Fu expert and literally dozens more diverse types that are now copywriters.

Some have earned hundreds of thousands of pounds writing (see below) where others like to write part-time for just £3-4,000 extra every month on top of their wages.

What Would You Like To Do As a Copywriter?

Do you want to be a copywriter full-time or part-time? I myself still write for clients part-time and can ask £25,000 per project plus bonuses and commissions. I once got paid £3,000 for email advice and some copy tweaks whilst working out in my local gym! By the way I no longer measure my success on the money scale. I measure my own on being happy and time rich (but I still get paid large amounts)

So you can do as little or as much as you like and you can control the amount of work you do. There are many clients out there right now that are waiting for writers just like you to give them the copy they need to get their business back on track.

Alan, I Have Never Written A Thing?

I get that. Before becoming a copywriter I had also never written copy for a client although I had been writing for myself with good success. Here is how I learnt. I took existing adverts or letters and then created my own version of them.

I will show you how you can take some of the best copy in the world and adjust, tweak and recreate into your own copy. There is nothing wrong with doing this. We call it swiping in the industry and it is absolutely ethical when done properly.

You don’t need experience. All you need to do is do exactly as I tell you. This means practice for an hour or more each week writing and make sure you read exactly what I tell you to read. It really isn’t that hard.

Alan, Surely I Can Learn Copywriting On My Own … I Really Don’t Need a Mentor?

TRUE – you can after all I did it that way - here’s how.

Do this. Buy David Ogilvy’s Book on Advertising. Write out his adverts, spend years learning the best way to do things, read until 4 am and then go to bed for three hours only to get up at 7 am to open your salon and then go find some clients. That’s what I did … so I know it can be done but it can take years even decades alone.

But …

When I did it that way it took me years of doing good things but also years of doing things that didn’t work. Today's marketplace for copywriters is far more complicated and I will tell you why.

The web has become awash with new copycat ‘experts’ with no real expertise. I started in business in 1985 and have turned over millions in sales. I have dealt with clients at every level from corporates to start-ups and understand their needs and wants. I also know the cool stuff like, positioning, perception, horizontal copywriting expansion, high pricing, incredible ways to convert almost anything and more. I learnt that on the front-lines by making a ton of mistakes in the process.

Working with me you take a by-pass route (that the fakes teach) and get the truth on what really works from a real copywriting and business expert.

Would you like to get paid and build a full or part-time business as a copywriter? I can tell you being a copywriter can become whatever you turn it into and working with me as you can read further below is not only an unusual experience but will give you insights into techniques that can only be learned over three decades.

Is Becoming a Copywriter On Mentor For You?

Let me take you back a step in my own life.

By the late 90s, I not only had three salons but I was working insane hours over 7-days a week for years. My staff were getting paid more than I was when it comes to pounds per hour. I would drive a short 5-miles every morning that would take one hour. I would drive back at 6 pm miserable, rushed, hassled and tired. I was getting well paid but I wasn’t living a life I loved.

Becoming a copywriter literally changed my life.

Suddenly I was working from home. I was working less and less hours. Some days I never worked I simply did my own thing and hung out around my home or went for walks or did something a little more creative.

I once got an emergency copy job that had to be returned overnight. I literally had 12-hours to write this letter. I got paid in advance. The payment was £7,500 for a single letter. I sat up all night and wrote the letter. Despite the fact, my working hours had now become strange I was working how I wanted and getting paid outrageous amounts for writing.

I even once got sent £5,000 and asked if I could write a letter ASAP. I was getting on a plane at the time so I write the letter on the flight to Australia - £5000 for a letter whilst I was flying business class. I once got sent another project for a client that sent me £20,000. He not only asked me to write his letter but told me no rush just do something amazing. That letter pulled the client just under £2 million in sales and he rewarded me very well for the copy I created for him.

Like I said becoming a copywriter can and will change your life at the level you need your life to become. All you need to ask yourself is …

‘what do I want from copywriter mentor training?’

If you feel you need …

  • An expert trainer and million plus copywriter with a track long record of success

  • A copywriting mentor that can safely guide you through the swamp of misinformation about writing copy and show you what really works fast

  • A trainer that can share with you frontline experience that has worked time and time again

  • A copywriter that writes A-grade copy day in and day out for his won businesses and premium clients

  • A master copywriter with a reputation so high he has the experts chasing him to write for them

  • Or a copywriter that other top copywriters come to for advice

And of course, an expert that can get you started, get you on track, push you forward, guide you safely through the mass of information out there but more importantly you need an expert that has already done what you need to do.

Just know from me to you that …

  • Becoming a copywriter can be the perfect part-time business

  • Becoming a copywriter can be the perfect full-time business

  • Becoming a copywriter can improve your health by giving you more time to be alive.

  • Becoming a copywriter can make you a millionaire if that is what you want

  • Becoming a copywriter can make you cash rich.

The Truth… Becoming a Copywriter Can Give You a Life That You’ve Probably Been Dreaming About For Years.

When we work together I will inspire you, push you, motivate you, impress upon you and constantly direct you in new ways that will at times feel a little tough but at the same time after 12-weeks, you will feel you have the ability to get started.

By the way, you will read below of some incredible successes.

All are just regular people wanting to create something new and special for themselves.

  • Steve: $90,000 in 12-weeks.

  • Chris: Paid for his mentor in weeks

  • Dilys: Her first £2,000 just 8-weeks into mentor Jason: Full time copywriting anarchist earning well over six figures for years.

And many more you can read about below.

It has taken me around the planet more than six-times and give me a great life today. It gave me a life of change and possibility and I love it even today.

“THE RESULTS HAVE BEEN INCREDIBLE”

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!

Finally got what I was looking for

“Thanks again for helping me to find the courage to do this”

Hello Alan

Thank you very much for all your help with the Mentor-ship course. I have learnt tons of new information. Finally got what I was looking for:

  • Helped me to find the niche that suits me best

  • Gave my insights how to draw out more from my writing skills

  • How to write and create successful sales letters – online and offline

  • Helped me to established the right way on my own website

  • Gave me the insider information of how to deal with clients – negotiating, invoicing, and their different personality traits

  • Several ways of getting paid big, medium and small amounts

  • Your own detailed systems so I can copy and build my business

  • How to position myself to get client to come to me

  • And so much more over 12-weeks and now the ongoing support.

And now, finally I am on the final stages of establishing myself as a Consultant – Copywriter. Something I have been pondering about doing for the last 5 years. But never had the guts to transition from my dull 9 to 5 day job to my dream as working for myself. 

Thanks again for helping me to find the courage to do this.

Regards

New copywriter, Ali Khan

“This is Caroline Sanderson. I’m a SALON MENTOR student of Alan’s.

I took the plunge and entered SALON MENTOR with Alan.

Anyone thinking of working with Alan I would say go for it

I had to fight back the ‘I cant afford it demons’ and go for it because I knew if I wanted really 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 took my business to a 53.4% rise in one month, 116% rise in one year. It would have been more but I had to make HUGE decisions along the way to create the hairdressing 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 116% 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.

Here is how my salon business and life look AFTER SALON MENTOR.

  • I have 12-weeks Holiday Each Year

  • I work ONE Day a Week On The Salon Floor

  • Bought a new Car

  • New Client Rate Up To 32%

  • Rebooking from 15% to 180%

  • New Staff Applications Through The Roof

  • From Salon Zero To Number One in my City

  • Marketing Budget Reduced To Almost Zero

  • Ability To Fill My Salon in Less Than An Hour

  • Number one Facebook Salon in my city

  • Mastered Facebook for Client Management

  • New Website On Page One of Google

  • Existing Stylists All Packed Out Every day

  • Salon Services UP 105%

  • Retail Sales UP 72%

And More?

Thanks, Alan!

“Why being involved with Alan is a smart investment”

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 32 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

Neil Shepard

“Played a key role in my journey to freedom, no more 9-5…”

I met Alan 2 years into my sales copy career. 

When we talked first, I was struggling to find work, lurching from one low paying client to another. 

And getting no attention, results or reputation. 

One hour with Alan was not cheap-but the results spoke for themselves. 

He showed me… 

  • How to stand out from other copywriters

  • How to create an attention grabbing website that positioned me the right way to make more money

  • How to create a killer offer

  • How to attract and convert more visitors into customers

  • How to write great copy that gets amazing results for my clients

  • How to take my business to market

  • How to charge more and deliver more value (I doubled my fees)

  • How to make money from consulting and not just by writing all the time

I still consult with Alan and get his input on how to boost the conversions of any campaign I’m working on.

He has played a key role in my journey to freedom, no more 9-5, living life on my own terms, and getting paid what I’m worth.

Thanks, Alan.

“I feel inspired and encouraged to keep pushing the bar higher”

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 program. I value your advice, suggestions and feedback. The rest is now down to me.

Thanks, Gary Spinks

“Meeting Alan in person was an experience I’ll never forget”

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 hemorrhaging 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

“The results have been incredible”

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!

“It was well worth it”

Alan thanks for your training program and Mastermind meeting – it’s real powerhouse stuff. Working with you has really opened my eyes, lifted my sights and given me powerful insights into how to make things possible. I’m making some BIG changes this year so thanks for shifting my thinking. Gary Spinks

As a result of my association with Alan, I am a much better copywriter than I ever thought possible. My writing is on a much higher plane and I can produce sales letters and adverts now which are far superior to anything I’ve done in the past with this new knowledge that I’ve gained from him.

For me, it was well worth it. 

Stuart Price

 “$90,000 Within Weeks”

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 know 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 learning from you and working with you.

I consider myself very lucky to have had the benefit of both learning 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)! ;)

MENTOR & Freelance Direct Response Copywriter, Jason Strachan Specialist In Self Improvement Informational Products

"Here's what I’ve been up to so far, since the being MENTORED.

Copywriter Jason Strachan




My very first copywriting job Since Starting Full Time Paid me $2500, –Before I Even picked Up a Pen! PLUS 10% Royalties, On all the CASH the sales letter pulled.

To Sum It Up: “…Thanks to what I learned from Alan, I Can Now Write Cash Generating Copy Every time That PULLS-AND-PULLS STRAIGHT CASH ORDERS LIKE YOU WERE GIVING AWAY FREE GOLD OR SOMETHING! "

Hi I'm Jason Strachan Before Mentoring With Alan Forrest Smith in 2005. I knew hardly anything about copywriting. And Now? ..I am a certified copywriting MASTER SALES WIZARD –My Magical Sales Skills Make Harry Potter Look Like Paul Daniels!! (Who?..My Point Exactly!!)

Now if you just give me a standard biro pen and paper, and stand back. I can powerfully string together words that create sales messages so powerful, that people find it harder to IGNORE than to just read it all through… And THEN once they’re engrossed in reading it. After using my skills to show them so clearly how great your product or service is, they then convince THEMSELVES that they would have to be INSANE not to buy RIGHT NOW than to risk passing this up —Such is the power of sales power in PRINT.– “LOOK..I am In LOVE!!” In love, with my new copywriting skills.

I now use them all the time. Not Just to write winning promotions for clients, hell I even use these skills to charm ladies I meet with seductive e-mails –Hey why not, It’s good practice, seduction, salesmanship, its all the SAME THING!!—If you ever get a chance to get MENTORED with Alan yourself, you’ll understand what I mean. I kid you not.

Before I made the commitment and really get the business and FINANCIAL money making, side of my life sorted out once and for all… I must say my life was a huge empty hole… Full of gunk and depression. I used to spend my time, ditching classes and write depressing love poems, and zoned out sci-fi tales with hope that one day someone would publish my work, but no one ever did …(can you hear the violins playing away in the background, say Aaaaah?) …And in a nutshell, it was getting me no where fast! And neither was the particular degree I was doing either, which was about as useful as a MASTERS DEGREE in basket weaving. .. So anyway I dropped out of college.

Much to my parents disgust. And decided to stop wasting my writing talents pouring out my ego onto paper hoping one day that, that GENIUS in me would escape… And after meeting Alan Forrest Smith I singed up and got the money and went like a SHOT from a rocket, hurtling ONLY ONE WAY and that was UP!. … Now years later, I am now GETTING PAID to write copy. I work with a select amount of clients, who come to me on a STRICT referral basis. “And No I Don’t Have A Website And Have Never Needed to Advertise My Services..”

Due to the highly advanced and not too mention insanely profitable skills I’ve learned from Alan Forrest Smith, I am in HIGH DEMAND in the market place. I now have the secrets of how to create Advertising that can boost ANY business in my mind….And after seeing –and enjoying!—The results of these skills, all I can is, copywriting really is the ULTIMATE money making skill in the world—BAR NONE! I can now work –or not work—Any Place I choose, and If I put my mind to it, there is no limit to the amount of money I can generate if I choose to use my skills for myself full time. NO LIMIT. Although for me personally, I just want enough money that I can just keep the totally FREE FUN FILLED lifestyle I lead, spending as much time with the family as I want, working when I want, and with WHO I want, I love it more than any amount of money, I have no desire to become the richest stiff in the grave! …

LOOK BEING TAUGHT BY ALAN … Is like Stepping Into Clark Kent's Phone Booth And Emerging As Super “Persausion” Man! For my very first copywriting job since starting Full Time I received $2500, + a 10% Royalty. Just like they (Alan Forrest Smith ) promised, with the Advertising secrets, strategies and techniques you learn from the Master you can easily pay back the cost of the class with the first successful package you write for yourself or a client.

And TRUST ME getting your first client becomes MUST easier to do, when you have 1st hand personal training from two of the WORLDS most successful copywriters pasted into your C.V. – And since most copywriters out there today couldn’t sell a breast to a baby, its even easier for a good copywriter to claim a FORTUNE!— …Alan Forrest Smith FORCED SO MANY Advertising Secrets Down My Throat That To This Day I Still Spit and Burp’ Out’ World Class Headlines and Marketing Strategies!!”

Look, without a doubt the ULTIMATELY great thing about MENTOR was the great support that Alan give to you, AFTER the MENTOR is over...so generous and they just over deliver again and AGAIN…. AFTER mentor is when the “REAL” value of the mentor kicks in, to hyper drive. Because when it all hits the fan and you get your 1st client, even after having ALL these masterful skills at your disposal, its hard to know exactly what to do, how to handle the client etc, you’re in totally un-chartered territory…

That’s when the mentor is worth MILLIONS!! With special email access to Alan for up to 12 months after my training — and he always emailed me back within 24 hours—you can get immediate assistance to your questions or problem. It’s like having your very own genies locked in a bottle, except NOW you have an UNLIMITED number of wishes!-

His crucial help and guidance from one of the best copywriters on the PLANET! Pretty much ensures that any copy you write is going to do pretty well. Most people considering starting a freelance copywriting career would have to find out how things work through hard trial and error. And since business is so unforgiving a client will rarely give you a second chance…If you what you write for a client BOMBS and produces no results, 99% of the time your finished with that client! So having these a mentor there to guide you with your new skills is really worth, more than the investment itself! As just one good client can be worth 6 figures a year, or MORE.

My life has been sensational since working with Alan and breaking into world class copywriting. It’s still early days for me, and I’ve bumped my head and make stupid mistakes, and learned from them, but its just make me stronger, better, And I’m loving every minute of it! I already feel like a great success. And I Truly LOVE my life. (Isn’t it sad how many people out there, cannot honestly say that to themselves?)

I’d just like to sincerely THANK ,from the bottom of my heart to the very top—Alan Forrest Smith for MENTOR, and generously giving me the keys to access, wealth, happiness, even a NEW LIFE of abundance and JOY!

THANK YOU!

P.S Listen… If you have the chance TO BE MENTORED BY ALAN then GO DO IT. No Question about it. The money you spend, on a place, Is NOTHING compared to the money you will make if you intend to use what you learn over your lifetime. You will have teaching from Alan non stop. Filling your mind with all his skills and experience. Its definitely a life changer, a LIFE BOOSTING FINANCIALLY FREEING EVENT!! No matter what you do, what industry it doesn’t matter. The techniques taught in MENTOR will put you so far ahead of every other business owner out there, just by simply applying what you learn, and sticking with it, success becomes inevitable for you, whatever success means for you..

Ultimately, Alan's MENTOR Can Make You Get It!

Thank you

MENTOR student Dan Moore

Now and then it's nice for me to share a clients little story. Dan is a mentor member of mine.

That's Dan above showing off in his custom car. He sent it to make me jealous, he knows I love custom everything.

Sometimes life isn't as smooth as we like, as you'll read.

Dan used to be a plumber. I say used to be, he is self-employed now rather than working for his dad. They never fell out, in fact quite the opposite, Dan worked with his dad until his dad died very suddenly.

It was Dad's business Dan worked in. It was Dad's house Dan lived in. Suddenly a steady, OK, paced lived went hurtling down towards the ground with no immediate stop in sight.

Not only was that bad enough but Dan lived with his dad and now his dads home for whatever reason was being taken back with Dan being asked to leave ASAP!

When Dan was speaking to me he told me the thought of starting his own plumbing business from scratch or patching up his Dad's bankrupt business had zero appeal for him.

He had an idea.

It was this and it was this based on research.

Women want to look younger. Women want breasts they feel good about. The marketplace is huge yet Dan found a serious hole in supply that he decided to fill.

That's what Dan did.

He sourced premium grade products, discovered how to put the product in front of the buyers and began to sell his stuff. Sounds easy I know but it wasn't.

The reason it wasn't because Dan had found the magic formula of sending steady traffic in his webpage's yet converting into buyers was low.

That's when he go in touch with me. We looked over his marketing and campaign again.

For me some things were blatantly obvious. Dan had become good at writing copy but it was in that usual formulaic way most people are taught.

Here was his problem.

His copy was good but it never matched his target audience.

We changed it.

He makes money … in fact last time we spoke he had done around $98,000 in sales. Not bad for a plumber!

So he sent me this little note.

Here it is.

"When I joined Alan as his mentor student I outlined what I wanted from him starting with my website, within the first week he critiqued my site detailing the changes to make on the copy and layout. After adjusting the sales copy and layout how he explained by the second week my sales conversion increased by a staggering 3% from 0.8% to 3.8%.

So that's going from one sale to four sales! In other words increased my sales FOUR-FOLD!

I just did what he suggested I do!

I didn't even have to spend more money on driving any extra traffic to make more sales. He knows just what potential customers are thinking and also showed me exactly how I can communicate with them more effectively by using results based copywriting techniques.

This was my key to selling!

Alan is insightful and inspiring, whenever I finish a mentor call with him I always feel energised and can't wait to put his strategies into action.

IF you know where you want to take your business Alan will help you get there for sure."

Internet entrepreneur, Dan Moore.

Just in case you're wondering, Dan managed to buy his Dad's old house. He's now making enough money to not only buy his own place but also get a custom show car in his hands that I'm jealous of.


“transformational and unforgettable”

"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 may be 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.

“It will change your life like it did mine”

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 cant 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 a 52% rise in one year. 

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.

Caroline Sanderson

“He’s on your team every step of the way”

Alan wants you to succeed. He really does. When you work with him he’s not just a consultant, he’s on your team every step of the way.

The key thing is that he has proven tools and experience in his armoury to help you discover your niche marketing weapons that will bring in the ‘right’ customers, business and lifestyle. It’s definitely all about you and your life success with Alan.

And the business; It’s not all about numbers – its about targeting. 10 laser-targeted prospects is far better than 1000 who are ‘generally interested’. Alan has the talent to uncover the true needs, language, and images that go thorough your customers minds in my mind, there’s no one better, he delivers every inch along the MENTOR training!

"Alan I mean this from the bottom of my heart.

I was introduced to Alan by a friend. My business is based on the creative industries and it took hard work, determination, blood sweat and tears to establish my business, as the leading creative market leader in the UK. I have clients travelling from all over the world for my training courses and it's amazing to wake up every morning, knowing that I can service my clients from the rich and famous, TV shows, celebrities and billionaires.

Of course bringing in high-end clients take a lot of time and effort and it got to a stage where I needed to get back to my goal of reducing my working hours and increasing my family time and that's exactly what Alan has helped me to do.

I've worked with Alan on his VIP mentoring day on a one to one basis, great lunch and company for sure. From my investment of £10,000 and the amazing copy provided by Alan, I've confirmed a £12,000 client, two £7,000 clients in one month, that's a total £26,000 in one month, so I've already got my investment back! And the beauty is I can use the same strategy over and over again to bring in new high-end clients.

Alan is very strategic about packaging and leveraging your existing skills and services. It doesn't matter how long you've been in business there is always room for growth and expansion. I love the fact Alan is so down to earth, listen, guys, his clients are turning over millions of pounds however Alan is so open and honest with the truth, makes you feel so comfortable, he gives so much thought and care to your business.

If you are ready to grow your business, first you need to step out of your comfort zone about investing money into your business, I can assure you if you follow his recommendations you will not be disappointed. It takes a lot of courage and strength to keep going, however, you can make your journey easier by working with experts and Alan is an expert in his field so go ahead and make your decision to have a chat with Alan today.

Alan, I would like to thank you for being so open and supportive in the next step of my business, it's going to an even more amazing journey than it has been so far. Thank you again."

“A Kick-Ass Mentor“

We had been on Alan’s email list for a long time and I initially found him through his orange beetle site.

It was the philosopher poet in him that attracted me to Alan; that and the fact he is a kick-ass mentor.

And when I say he is kick ass , he has definitely kicked ours a couple of times!!

we’re a salon that was doing well, but lurching from one crisis to another. We contacted Alan after one particular series of staff crisis as we couldn’t see the wood for the trees and felt that we needed new direction and help steering the ship.

Alan came in and immediately saw what need doing and helped us very quickly focus on the important stuff –

  • He got us to immediately concentrate on the numbers, daily/weekly totals, clients and averages

  • He helped us write and set in motion a kick ass campaign to get new ROCK STAR staff and got us to think about recruitment in a different way – and within two weeks we had 2 new members of staff that are now pulling in over a £1000 a week!!

  • We recruited a kick ass Receptionist.

  • He helped set in motion, weekly and daily meetings with our team; holding them accountable for their columns

  • We introduced new specialist services

  • Raised prices overnight by 10% with no client losses

  • Created a managers role and filled that the position from within our existing team

  • Started an email campaign with a 71% open rate – unheard of

  • At the beginning, the plan we worked out with Alan was to be doing 10k weeks,  and although we’re not quite there yet, we know that 10k is within touching distance and we’re determined to get there, and soon!

Honestly, Alan has helped us focus and given us belief.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s been really hard but rewarding work !! Alan has been there constantly in the background cajoling, demanding, driving and giving us ideas and has been on hand 24hrs a day!

He is true to his word. Honest as hell and a great guy that wants you to succeed at all times.

I think any business will benefit from working with Alan.

DOUBLED our turnover in 4 weeks

Hi Alan

“THE SALON IS CHANGING … PHONE HAS NEVER STOPPED … JUST INSANE”

Well, what can I say!!

We had a salon, a team,  a business – Or so we thought!!

WE CANT THANK YOU ENOUGH…….SIMPLY AMAZING!!!!!

Rich and Steph, Sage Hair Wickham

We were taking on average £2-3000 a week, it covered the bills… just! We spent A LOT of nights worrying about how we were going to pay the staff if there was money in the bank to pay the product company…. We didn’t take a wage, we didn’t have any spare cash, we thought we were doing everything like we should but we were still not seeing any increase….until we called Alan.

We spent many more nights wondering whether we should take the risk, it was a lot of money that we certainly didn’t have.

We made the jump… and it was honestly THE BEST THING WE HAVE EVER DONE!!!! Alan ripped our business apart and showed us it in a completely different light….

In 4 weeks he has refocused our attention on stabilising and building a BUSINESS. He has almost DOUBLED our turnover in 4 weeks…….at the quietest time of the year!! He has opened our eyes to everything about our business and what we were doing and has flipped it on its head!!

It’s INTENSE, ITS HARD WORK AND ITS EXTREME!! But we are ABSOLUTELY LOVING IT!!  The results are UNREAL….. We are 4 weeks in…..we cant for the results after 12.

Alan is fantastic, he is supportive, encouraging and he knows what he’s talking about! He is ALWAYS at the end of the phone, he keeps us focused and he gets results……it’s  just simply amazing!

I can’t wait to write about our journey after the next 4 weeks!

Rich and Steph, Sage Hair, Wickham

Alan the letters were excellent. A good professional tone, but also packed with key must-buy words. I particularly liked the focus on the personalities behind the products and the potential for the information on the videos to change people's fortunes, while also elaborating some of the main learning points available in their presentations.

As someone selling the product, I'm bound to feel enthusiastic about it – but I think these letters capture that enthusiasm and sell that to other people too.

Thanks

EXCELLENT

Alan,

the copy you wrote for me was excellent … I am a center of influence and have recommended you on my coaching calls to potential clients …

"If you need potent direct response copy that'll haul in the orders, give Alan a shout. He'll treat you right and give you some great copy."

Marlon Sanders

STARTLING RESULTS

I don't dispense compliments easily. But I must admit that Alan is one of those rare copywriters who truly 'get it.' Copywriting in the direct response industry is an art, a science and a challenge. It takes more than mere words to make one's copy work hard. But Alan knows that. Well. I've referred clients to him for a while now, and his copy is absolutely fabulous — with startling results, too! If you need killer copy that kicks, I recommend Alan, hands down."

Copywriter Michel Fortin

TURNS TO GOLD

When it comes to choosing a true professional copywriter who understands how to bring in the big bucks from advertising, then make sure you don't go past Alan…

…words are what make your letters & website sell… words are what pull in new customers like steel to a magnet…and Alan has the knack of plucking words out of the blue to make every project he touches literally turn to gold!…"

David Cavanagh Mobile Marketing Systems

STUNNING

Alan,

The copy you have written for us is absolutely stunning! You definitely have a fantastic way with words. I can't wait to work with you in the future and I will wholeheartedly recommend you to my clients.

OPENED MY EYES

Hi Alan

Thanks the Mastermind day as part of the package. Am sure more questions will arise as I process it all.

Working with you has really opened my eyes, lifted my sights and given me powerful insights into how to make things possible. Just need to make it happen now.

Thanks again - will catch up on tonight’s call.

Gary Sprinks, Copywriter

33%

I can’t thank you enough for what you’ve done. As you know I spent over two months trying to find the right copywriter to work with and it was two months well spent.

I can’t imagine anyone giving more than you. I’m possibly not the easiest person to work with, I don’t know, but still you go out of your way to get things right, to keep me happy, to get results. Your patience and understanding are remarkable as is your passion for your writing.

But you don’t just write, you advise, you give ideas, insights, quite simply you’re passionate about helping other people. The effectiveness of your copy was immediately obvious...33% RESPONSE!

Orders came in so quickly after the first mailing that I was completely caught out! Long may it continue. Thanks again Alan. I truly appreciate you.

Steve Goudy, TDMethod

THE BEST

Results have been amazing. Seen a massive rise in sales conversion from my web pages. Without a doubt one of the best copywriters out there!..

Nick James

74 SALES!

Alan… about the mailer: I sent a fax mailer to the same group of people in M arch and received 3 replies and when I sent the one you wrote for us the other day I received an incredible 74 sales.

Thanks, George, Jay Abraham

GAME CHANGING

Hi Alan,

How did you impact the way I think about business?

Two words - GAME CHANGING!

I never once thought it was possible - attracting and working with BIGGER clients. (Those that generate millions of pounds in sales).

Until… I heard this presentation. Most stuff I’ve read, heard, or watched do teach you to figure out who your ideal client is. However, what they don’t reveal is how to attract and make your ideal client want to work with you.

Cheers Alan!

Vincent Wong, Writer and Consultant

P.S. Now that you’ve set the standards so high - how can you possibly top this ... ?

AMAZING COPY

The copy you have delivered at this point has been amazing. In the past I have dealt with copywriters that charge double your fee…and they provided dull lifeless copy.

Your copy should convert like crazy. You are my new secret weapon. I want to keep you all to myself.

Jonathon Page

CONTAGIOUS

… sales results – That's the only true measure of success for direct response copywriting. That's the only reason you should listen to any sales copywriter, isn't it?

In fact, Alan writes with so much positive, raw courage and power, his writing leads prospects to the edge and then over. His copy is so downright contagious, your order page will catch fire from his energetic approach.

Your page will be so "amped", your prospects don't stand a chance at getting out of your sales page without handing you money. He's got the solid, time-tested track record to prove just exactly that.

Peter Stone

TALENT!

After speaking with many people within the direct marketing industry, many of whom left me unimpressed, it was an absolute joy to find Alan.

He has a passion for this and it not only shows – it jumps of the page at you. His talent for writing has been confirmed by all those I showed his work to, colleagues, copywriters and clients alike.

I look forward to working with Alan again already."

Adam Hamilton-Fletcher, smevents.co.uk

ON TARGET

His copy is right on target and I am very impressed. Alan is very professional in his approach, but just as important, his suggestions bring clarity to the copy. I found Alan to be just so helpful and friendly. It is a pleasure to work with him.

FANTASTIC

Alan,

its not your first time to write something like this. The email is fantastic … Wow

James Beattie

83% INCREASE

Alan tweaked my offer and increased sales by just over 83%. Just incredible.

Greg Milner, World Salon Marketing

47% RESULT

Alan took my failed direct mail letters and set them on fire. I was losing so much money my wife almost left me. He re-wrote the letters and cut back the amount of mailers. The campaign had a result of 47% with sales of over £800,000 in 12 months.

Thank you Alan

Robert Mcholl

LIFE TRANSFORMED

I’m a MENTOR client of Alan’s. One year ago I took the plunge and entered a MENTOR with Alan. I paid well over £10,000 for Alan’s amazing knowledge and skills! I had to fight back the ‘I cant afford it demons’ and go for it because I knew if I wanted real fast track change with my business 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 a 53.4% in four weeks and 116% rise in one year. It would have been more but I had to make HUGE decisions along the way to create the business 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 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 two new businesses. 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 doing MENTOR with Alan I would say go for it. There’s absolutely no question It will change your business like it did mine. “Since working with Alan my life and business have been transformed!

Caroline Sanderson, Ego Hair

THANK YOU

Hi Alan, Thanks a million for the Masterclass. I’ve been studying direct marketing and copywriting for a year, but I just felt like I didn’t have everything together to get started. Since the day in Sydney and watching the DVD’s everything’s turning around.I now have all the skills to start marketing and making profits for businesses and myself. You’ve shown me how to get started and given me the skills and the confidence. Your delivery was great. Being able to ask you any question was hugely valuable. I’m going to be your next success story. Thanks so much.

Luke Foster, New Zealand

GRATEFUL

Hi Alan,Well…all I can say is…I’m so grateful you gave us the opportunity to have a full day with a Non-Conformist Marketer…even though you brought the rain Down Under! I took hours and hours to write a headline before and now they are coming to me in a flash! It’s such a massive difference and has made me feel so much more confident about my writing skills. I can’t thank you enough, Alan.

Hope to see you again soon, Alan, and all the best! Kind Regards,

Liz Winstanely

UNIQUE

G’Day Bridge Walker,Hope all is well over in the English countryside….with Orange Beetles in the back yard…Before Alan’s Sydney Non Conformist Master Class I knew a bit about copywriting, but it always took hours and only got an average result. Now I have done Alan’s course, I know where to get great, tested unique templates. This save’s me hours each time I write, and I have a much better and tested result, leading my customers by the hand, from my landing page, through my copy and into the “PAY NOW” box. Bingo, mission accomplished!!! Regards

Andrew Dale P.S. Hope my photo doesn’t scare away your customers

I COULDN'T BELIEVE IT

You put enough shit on us at the class last week I felt it was the Aussies go! Mate, thank you once again for last Saturday. I received a call the other day from my media company informing me my website was ready for launch. When it was presented to me I thought the text looked like shit… So I re wrote it all.

Using your techniques saved me a bucket load of time and now I feel it will really get the results I was hoping for. I’ve been watching the dvd’s you gave us, they are brilliant! Just a little reminder, as I am dead keen to see and use them….Things are going well – I sold the land I talked to you about abroad (bahamas). I wrote out some copy, put a plan in motion for press releases to get it sold – no need – I put an advert in hot property alert and it sold in a day and I couldn’t believe it.

Used the copy skills you taught me, but the editorial team changed the headline and made the ad sound more boring, but kept the facts from research I did. Just proves that copy is so important, even in a small ad!!

I’ll let you know asap.

£88,000 FROM ONE EMAIL!

I sent the email on Tuesday afternoon, about 10 minutes later I checked my inbox and was pleasantly surprised to find I had 16 replies from potential customers asking for quotes – by the end of that afternoon I had nearly 50 emails asking for quotes, and I ended up staying in the office until 1am finishing them all! Then the next day I had about 10 more! In the following 3 days, I took over $21,450.00 – and this week, what should have been the quietest of the year, ended up being the most successful week of the year so far! And, I estimate conservatively that I’ll pull in another $17,800.00 – $35,760.00 more, over the next couple of weeks as a result of this one single email!

This stuff is just crazy, I’d heard of results like this in the past but I didn’t really think they were real, I suppose they’re not until you see them for yourself, but I’ll tell you what, this is just the beginning, now I know what’s possible with the stuff I learned at the weekend, I’m not going to stop creating results like this, for my own businesses, and for my clients!

When I Count It All Up I Will Bank Over $88,000 Minimum From That One Single Email! I would back up everything I’ve just said

COMPLEX SIMPLE

Alan, You make the complex steps of process so clear that they seem manageable, you insist that we discover and then speak with our own voice, all the time modelling this yourself, you provide endless references for where to go to learn necessary bits and if that wasn't enough, we now know where you live.

Sabrina Yuille, Brisbane Australia

RESPECT

The true test of a man is often in what they do for & how they treat others. Thanks for treating us with respect & integrity – a man of your character is rare to come across in today’s jaded seminar/ spruiking world.

Victoria Furey GetGood.com.au

I wanted to send you this personal note below to let the folks know you truly are an amazing business coach! Honestly, I was amazed and still am. Since his return to the UK his support has been fantastic. Distance is NOT an object at all for Alan. My advice to anyone reading this that might be thinking is it worth hiring Alan.

f you hear about him speaking live, GO. If you get a chance to sit and talk with him face to face, do it. If you can afford to pull him into your office and pay his consultancy fee’s, just do it. The guy is a goldmine of information that could potentially help anyone build a substantial business online."

REVAMPED

Alan,

This weekend I have revamped my business model, my business plan and my business life and I cannot wait to get it going!!

I'm on my way!!

Thank you SO much!

INSPIRING

Dear Alan,

This has been the time I could have spent ever for my business. It was brimmiming with information, all relevant and important, very entertaineing and hugely inspiring. And best of all it was unbelievable value for money.

HIGHEST CALIBRE

Petra Lander, Room4Style.com

The highest claibre. I have learnt more about marketing, in fact about the internet in these 3 days than I have learnt before.

Shivish Shah

I have learned more in these 3 days than I have done from all the seminars I have attended in all my life put together! That is no overstatement as I have altered 2 headlines and adjusted some text on my homepage with an instant increase in opt-ins

Thank you Alan for a great 3 days.

Matt Shaw

The content and the speakers were absolutely AMAZING!

I've done 7 day seminars that haven't been anywhere near as good.

It covered every single aspect of marketing and content creation. I'm going home to implement just a fraction of what we've been given as I know just that little bit alone will double my business.

Then I'll implement another fraction and increase my business even more. I can't wait!

David Walsh

Mike Yate

I've seen Alan here and there but never live.

During his seminar I soon learnt that Alan is a brilliant marketer, copywriter and manager.

The seminar was organised very smart covering everything in the right sequence and right timing.

Alan is also a great speaker on stage and surprised me with his ay of dressing and the ay he communicates with attendees.

Mega Masterclass simply ROCKED!

Sandis Viksna, SandisViksan.com

Alan thank you for putting on a first class event.

The whole seminar deliver , no over DELIVERED real useable content and excellent value.

I know I have gained at least 5 ideas that I can use in my business immediately to produce measurable result, valuable results.

Little wonder that your attends have such a high success rate in their business.

Phillip Shufflebottom.

I attended Alan Forrest Smith's Mega MasterClass in October 2006 and as ever the content he delivered was second to none.

I don't know how he finds these guys and gets them to deliver such unique content.

If Alan ever runs one of these event again I strongly recommend you attend.

I have walked out of here at the end of every ay with an idea that I can use immediately to make my business more profitable.

These guys spilled their guts, fabulous 3 days.

Alan YOU MUST RUN ANOTHER.

Jane Morris

Hello Alan,

Thank you for a wonderful 3 days of packed content. The speaker gave their all and really delivered (I wasn't sure if you would deliver before hand … YOU DID!)

I got so many actionable tools that I can put into place on Monday morning.

Your truly

Gerard Malone, MortgageLadder.ie, Dublin, Ireland.

Alan has delivered fantastic value for money bringing together top experts covering both cutting-edge tactics and strategies. Once youre seen this seminar there are no excuses for online success.

Mike Spurgeon, HumanBizMatch.com

INTERNET MARKETING CLASSES … MMMM …I'm a cynic.

Too often over-promise and under deliver. But I gave this one a go. I don't know why perhaps it was something to do with the fact that it was masterminded by a man in a kilt!

I can only say that I was blown away. What a fantastic event that simply oozed value. Every speaker delivered an abundance of valuable information during some of the most dynamic sessions I have ever experienced.

Not only did I leave with tons of revolutionary ideas that could change my life but I also made some great new contacts and had a blast in the process

The mega masterclass was truly and unbelievable experience and a real inspiration.

Alan is a fantastic guy and I'm looking forward to working with him again.

Angela Mains

I attended Alan's Mega MasterClass seminar this weekend and WOW!

We got a group of top ranking experts giving us their time to tell and show us how to think outside the box to expand your online business massively.

The content this weekend has been awesome!

Outstanding quality and quantity!

From all of the Internet Marketing seminars I've attended this year (and there have been a few), this is one I've come away from with practical advice and motivation to support to implement it.

PRICELESS!!

Watch this space.

Anne Chochrane

This is the very first seminar I came to in the UK and boy was I blown away!!

I have reasonably successful internet business already and there are still plenty of those AHAA effects in the 3 content packed days that Alan and his team delivered.

For anyone even thinking about learning from these guys, I would strongly advice that you just take the leap of faith and just do it!

You'll at least make 3 times your investment back if not 4 or even 5.

Rely on these guys, coz they deliver!

Saumil Patel, SaumilPatel.com

Having never (ever) attended an Internet Marketing conference before , I can wholeheartedly recommend Alan Forrest Smith and his group of merry men. Come along with an open mind and delight in the experience of having it filled with all sorts of wonders.

Generosity, Integrity, dedication, commitment!
