    Haha I remember when this video came out and I thought "I'm not alone."

    I love browsing through Classifieds and newspapers, and I'm always thinking to myself.

    "Would I buy this?"

    If not, what would make me buy this and how could they hook me in.

    I've had to stop myself on a few occasions from calling up the business and just giving them a better tag line.

    Oh yeah! 

    There is lots-o bad copywriting out there.

    I often rewrite it in my head as I read it.

    @Neville Interesting video. 

    I've been mentally rewriting emails I get at times. Once you know what good copy should be.  You look through the world with a different lens.

    @Neville Thanks.  This is awesome.  I love to read other marketers' emails to see what angles they are using.  It gives me ideas for my emails. 

    I see that you have Ramit's emails in there.  I love his emails.

    I love this! And how you broke down the three types of traffic. Sounds basic but basic can be overlooked often!
