Copywriting Codex: I Couldn’t Believe My Ears…

How’s it going? Hope your week’s going great so far–the last week of February is nearly over.

All right, let’s get to it.

I was on the phone with a client the other day. I had no idea why he wanted to give me a call, because he didn’t mention anything specific.

We went over results of some previous email campaigns, as well as plans with what to do next to help his business.

He mentioned a while back about wanting to write a video sales letter, and how he wanted to have me help him. He had a specific method in mind that he wanted to use. The more he told me about this method, the more I wanted to learn it, because video sales letters are something I haven’t studied in-depth.

He offered to buy me a second license for this method, so I could have lifetime access.

Thing is, he also told me the bulk of this method involved watching video lessons online.

For those of you who don’t know, I have dial-up currently (you might have a laugh if you read about it here).

This method also has documents I can study, but the video thing was shaping up to be a bit of a snag.

I’d thought about contacting some friends who live close by who have satellite internet, or seeing if I could buy a small laptop and find a wi-fi signal somewhere, and work it that way (which was part of the reason for my computer research mission last Sunday–other than the fact that I like technology, of course).

But on this call, my client suggested something, and I couldn’t believe my ears…

He wants to not only buy me a second license for this method, but also burn all the video lessons from the course on to DVDs for my personal use.

So not only do I get essentially free education, I’ll also learn a skill that can be applied to other projects for this client, as well as every future client I work with.

I can watch the DVDs whenever, no internet required, and still get the information I need.

I’d say that’s pretty cool, wouldn’t you?

It’s nice to know people still exist in this world who will give you a hand, or work with you to get past obstacles.

And it makes the world seem a little brighter because of those kinds of people.

I didn’t want to throw the kitchen sink into this post, so in my next post, I’ll go into the fiction writer’s version of getting a hand.

Make sure to swing by, all right?

Until next time,

Ty
