What if you could just move some words around and magically increase sales; persuade readers; or simply get more attention to your writing?

There have been copywriting examples, case studies, even TV show (like Mad Men) on how amazing copywriting can not only increase sales but also change an entire brand.
Here are some of my favorite copywriting examples and case studies that show how the magic works. Explore!

Here’s some of the results. I’m posting these to publicly to shame myself into getting better and faster!
I was walking down the street here in Austin, TX…..and noticed this little Shoe Hospital:
Here’s some pics of it:
I live nearby…..so I’ve walked by this place probably 500+ times……and the only thing I’ve ever noticed about it was this dinky sandwich-board sign:
All it says is “SATURDAY SPECIAL! 1/2 price heels no limit!”
I have no idea what … Continue Reading

Let’s try a little experiment together, where we build out some signs to promote a gym, and see what happens! (Comment below with your suggestions).
Let’s get started:
Sometimes our little monkey brains like to overcomplicate things….especially those mysterious and magical books.
When I self published my first book, it struck me that:

So if a blog … Continue Reading
Today I was thinking about learning copywriting over the past few years, and realized that it all started with reading your blog, taking your course, and talking to you on office hours.

That title pretty much explains this whole experiment!
We got Catheryn Lavery, the CEO of Best Self Co to let us use them as test subjects, and show us the resulting numbers.

I’ve been lazy AF and never got this little book I had planned done. In fact I have it listed as a goal on FOUR different months, and still haven’t done it:
Sometimes you’ve just gotta admit you’re a lazy asshole and ask for help.
A simple digital product got this bar an extra $49,000, plus moved them into a Physical + Digital hybrid.
Bars and restaurants are generally understood to be low margin businesses with few revenue streams.
But they don’t need to be.
For example, we built a “digital bartending school” that made us $49,000+ in addition to what we were already making.… Continue Reading

Here’s what the AIDA Formula is in a nutshell:
Attention: Get their attention with something catchy and relevant.
Interest: Tell them interesting facts or uses.
Desire: Make them desire the product/service.
Action: Get them to take an action.

I don’t know how to type correctly. I chicken peck. Look at this:

I want to spend 1 hour per week doing social media, but make it LOOK like I’m posting every single day!
I enjoy posting on social platforms, but I hate getting sucked back into them constantly. There’s just so many of them, and they’re all extremely addicting.
For example it’s difficult to go on Facebook to respond to a comment … Continue Reading
Yelp gets a lot of hate. It usually comes down to this problem:
It’s a review site, but business owners aren’t allowed to ask for reviews.
Lots of restaurant owners get stuck on that idea. They see Yelp as a big scary thing that’s out of their control and potentially dangerous.
But in truth, it’s the biggest review platform in … Continue Reading
My first two jobs had crazy approaches to meetings:
Job #1 = Super time consuming meetings over 2 hours each.
Job #2 = Zero communication
If you can only sell 100 products in a year, look at the difference the price makes:
100 products at $2 each = $200
100 products at $20 each = $2,000
100 products at $200 each = $20,000
100 products at $2,000 each = $200,000
100 products at $20,000 each = $2,000,000
100 products at $200,000 each = $20,000,000
100… Continue Reading
