“I first met Ray when I was still working with Tony Robbins. We needed a sales letter for a new product. Hiring Ray to write that sales copy was one of the best decisions we ever made, because he nailed it. Every time we used Ray’s copy, our sales went through the roof!”
Amy Porterfield
Creator of ProfitLab
Ray Edwards flat-out gets results. He has written many profitable pieces of copy for us, including our most profitable sales letter. That sales letter has brought us over $10,000,000 (million) in revenue… Ray’s copy remains the undisputed champion.”

How to Manufacture Cash Flow on Command
According to the US Bureau of Labor and Statistics, only 30% of small businesses will survive.

Of the 70% that fail, 82% fail because of “cash flow issues.”

In other words, they run out of money.

What if I told you there was a skill you can develop that virtually ensures you will never run out of money?

What if this skill could give you the power to create cash flow on demand?

What if you could accomplish this near-magical feat at zero cost… no additional staff, inventory, advertising, or other expenses required?
Well, I have such a skill. And I have taught it to many people. Now I’m willing to teach it to you. Here’s the story….

If you’re still not making the money you want in your business… if your solo professional practice isn’t providing you with the freedom and profits you dreamed of… if your platform isn’t bringing you income if your launches are more of a “failure to launch”…

Even if you’re doing well, but just know there’s more

The Copywriting Academy solves all these problems for you.
This Proven SYSTEM Cranks Out All the
Cash-Creating Copy You Need
This is not just a course, and not just a coaching program – it’s a system for writing copy.
Any and all copy you need for your business. The Academy is right for you if…
  • You’re planning to do a “Jeff Walker style” Product Launch and you want to be sure you nail the copy.
  • You are an entrepreneur, small business owner, or solo professional and want to write your own copy (granting you the power to create “cash flow incidents” on demand).
  • You’re a subject matter expert who is building a Platform – and you don’t want to smear your good reputation with sleazy, cheesy sales copy.
  • You’re a writer (fiction, non-fiction, inspirational, how-to) and you want to sell more books without compromising your craft.
  • You sell products, training or services in a “soft topic” market (like creative and spiritual work… plus art, music, or counseling).
  • You’re a freelance copywriter who wants to learn dozens of new response-boosting tricks, the latest “social-friendly” copy techniques, and how to attract higher-paying clients by the dozen.
  • You are a certified professional or work in a highly-regulated industry, and find other marketing and copywriting courses ignore the important compliance issues you face. (We’ll help you market effectively, keep your license safe, and show you how to stay classy!)
  • You want to tap the profit-pulling power of compelling copy, but don’t want to shell out $50,000 (or more) every time you need sales copy written.
  • You want to train your on-staff copywriter in the secrets of proven direct-response copywriting that gets results.
  • You plan to hire outside pro copywriters, and want to know the “inner secrets” of their craft – so you can know for sure if you’re getting the real deal (and avoid getting ripped off!).
Write Copy That Sells…
Without Selling Your Soul
Let’s face the facts.

You know you need to write powerful, persuasive sales copy in order to sell your products and services. You probably know that you can change no other part of your marketing, but just replace mediocre copy with great copy, and sales skyrocket.

But there’s a problem.

The problem is most sales copy sounds sleazy and overhyped. We’ve all seen the crazy sales copy online that seems to scream “scam”. Maybe you are afraid that when we talk about writing sales copy, that’s what we’re referring to. Heaven forbid!
That style of copywriting may have worked at one time on the Internet, but its effectiveness is diminishing rapidly, and the power of that sort of marketing has already seen its day.

To succeed in modern times, you have to understand that your audience is smarter. They demand more respect than ever before. And they have always deserved it.

Today, the most powerful copy is heart-centered, not manipulative, yet powerfully persuasive.

This represents the convergence point of the needs of your customer, their desire for a solution, and the benefits of your product or service.

Communicating this convergence is the heart of powerful copy.

Before you disregard that as nice-sounding poppycock, stick with me. Consider this…
Here’s the Cost of Not Solving the
“Copy Problem”
This is not just a course, and not just a coaching program – it’s a system for writing copy.
Any and all copy you need for your business. The Academy is right for you if…
What’s the potential cost of not solving your copywriting problem?

Everything, incalculable, astronomical!

That can be the cost of not solving your “copy problem.”

Is it really that important? You bet it is. The words on your site sell your products and services -whether those words are typed out, spoken in an audio file, or form the script of a sales video.

It’s easier to understand the reason a web business fails if we understand how it got messed up to begin with.
Here’s how it happens for most online businesses:
1. Someone has a bright business idea.
2. That same someone plans their business carefully.
3. Then they slap up a website… usually a free one they got from their web host, or one their nephew made for them.
4. And then they sit back and wait for the orders to roll in.
Guess what happens next?

Nothing, that’s what!

Most websites are like a Western Ghost town. You can practically see the tumbleweeds blowing down the empty streets.
Words or Design: Which Will You Choose?
Pop quiz: what’s the most important thing on your website?

Is it the pictures? The videos? The graphics? Or is it the words?

If you could only choose one element for your website… if I said, “Choose! You either get pictures, or you get words – but you can’t have both. Which is it?”

I hope you answered, “The words.”
It’s the Words on Your Site That Do the Selling!
The problem is, of course, coming up with just the right words.

Direct response advertising experts know that changing just one word in a headline, or “tweaking” one paragraph or layout element can result in sales increases.

But before we get into the secrets of what makes a great ad (and make no mistake, your website itself is indeed an ad), let’s ask (and answer) a more basic question…
Is It Possible You’re Only One
Sales Letter Away from Freedom?
One of my copywriting colleagues says, “You’re only one sales letter away from being a millionaire.”

I happen to think that’s true.

But let’s even tone it down just a bit…maybe believing you’re a “sales letter away from being a millionaire” is a little too much of a stretch for you.

Can you get your mind around this: you very well may be one (or two or three) sales letters away from financial freedom.

Think about that. Could one sales letter give you the freedom to quit your day job?

Could one successful sales letter pay off your debts?

Because I believe good sales copy is the one critical piece of leverage that can mean the difference between success and failure online… I call Copywriting a “Master Skill.”

Once you can write compelling sales copy, you can create money virtually “on demand.”
  • Need some cash for a vacation? Come up with a promotional idea, write the copy for it, and put your copy in front of your audience!
  • Tax man knocking at your door? Write some copy making a compelling offer, send the email, and watch the dollars flow into your inbox.
  • Want to increase your income dramatically, without increasing your ad budget? Write a new piece of copy that converts browsers into buyers…and your bank balance fattens up like magic.
  • Just need cash FAST? Write copy for someone else and pocket $5,000 or more for writing a simple letter like this one! (I’ll show you how to get these clients.)

How I Sold Over $200 Million Using the
Power of Copywriting
I learned my skills as a copywriter in the world of broadcast radio, where I worked for over 30 years. Then, when the Internet strangled the life out of radio, I made the move to the Internet. I began working freelance, to write copy and marketing campaigns for some amazing folks, including:
  • Tony Robbins
  • Michael Hyatt
  • Jeff Walker
  • Dan Miller
  • Jack Canfield
  • Robert Allen
  • Mark Victor Hansen
  • Frank Kern
  • Stu McLaren
  • …and many more!
I have been blessed with some astonishing clients, who run incredible businesses, and together we have sold an estimated $200 million or more in products and services since I began doing this.

I’ve also had the opportunity to learn from each of these clients, and the many others I worked with whose names you may not recognize. But even the most obscure clients had something to teach me. I venture to say I’ve had more “behind the scenes” access to multimillion dollar businesses than 98% of people working in marketing, copywriting, and advertising.

It’s been one heck of a fun ride.

And now, you’re invited to join me, as I reveal the secrets of writing persuasive copy.
Let Me Show You How I Do It
Now, I’m going to show you how I write those words; and you can write them yourself, for your own products and projects…you can even write for others if you choose. (I don’t mind… there’s plenty of work for everyone.)

In fact, for some people in the “gig economy,” writing for clients is the fastest, easiest way to break free from their job and start their own online business. If you choose that path, you can always transition from being a writer-for-hire to just writing copy for your own businesses and products.
Great News: It’s Not That Tough
Copywriting is a skill that can be learned by just about anybody.

Even if you don’t consider yourself a “writer.”

Even if you didn’t get good grades in English.

If you can write good basic English, you can learn the skill of copywriting. Ever write a memo at work? A love letter to your sweetie? Then chances are you have what it takes to be a copywriter.

All you need now is someone to show you the proven formulas, the hidden structures, and the time-tested tactics of sales copy.

And that’s exactly what I’m going to do in this online coaching program.
What the So-Called “Gurus” Won’t Tell You
Here’s the “dirty little secret” most of the so-called gurus simply won’t tell you: they’re almost all great copywriters.

Even though many of them may now hire others (like me, for instance) to write their copy, every single one of them knows: it’s the copy that makes them rich.

That’s why they’re willing to pay big bucks to have their copy written. I know – I get paid large sums of money to write copy for websites and marketers.

My minimum fee for a new sales letter is $150,000.

You may not want to be a copywriter for hire… but if you learn the skill of copywriting, you can use the power of copy to multiply your sales and profits.

And if you need some quick cash, you can always take on a client or two…it’s the ultimate “safety net.”
Why Would I Teach My “Secrets”?
If I were you, right about now I’d be wondering, “If this guy is making so much money as a big-shot copywriter, why on earth would he teach other people how to do it themselves?” Here are the reasons why…

1. My top-tier clients already know how to write copy. Some of them are better copywriters than I am. But they don’t have time to write their own copy, so they call on me. That won’t change, no matter how many people I teach to write their own copy.

2. Many people can’t afford me. I get calls and emails each week from people who just can’t pay me the $150,000 + a percentage it takes to get me on a project.

3. There’s plenty to go around. Some have asked, “Ray, won’t this create a lot of ‘mini-Rays’ who will compete with you?” There are more than enough clients and JV partners to go around. Not only am I happy to teach you how to write copy… I will teach you to get clients and get paid for your copywriting! I’m not worried about competition. There’s more than enough for all of us. (Heck, I turn away jobs every week as it is.)
A Six-Figure Annual Income … For Life
Please understand, this is not some “get rich quick” scheme.

This is a serious business skill that can provide you with a comfortable six-figure annual income for the rest of your life.

You can run your business from anywhere. You can dream up promotions and campaigns, write the copy, and put the plan into profit… all in the same day.

And yes, you could “retire” from your present job, and use your copywriting skills to build your own marketing empire – working wherever and whenever you want.

I have run my business from all over the USA and Europe:

  Working from home in the Northwest US (sometimes at my house, sometimes from my office 5 minutes away, and sometimes from Starbucks!) …

  • On the road in my 32′ motorhome (I sold the coach, and we’re looking at new ones now) …

  Traveling to Chicago, San Diego, Los Angeles, Seattle, and New York…

  • On vacation with family in Michigan, the Carolinas, Utah, and Montana…

  And from England and Scotland…

My results are not typical – you’ll have your own results. Want to join me in the club of getting results that are “not typical”? Want to know how I manage to get these unusual results?
I owe all of it to copywriting!
What will you do with your copywriting skills?

  • Will you finally get your online business started? 

  Will you write copy freelance, and live a life free from offices, meetings, and memos?

  • Will you take your existing online business and multiply your profits using the power of copy?

Or will you keep struggling along like the 70% of business-owners… who inevitably fail?

  • The Buyer’s Journey Genius Map™ is a slick, high-resolution info-graphic that helps you walk your reader through the 12 Gates every buyer must pass through before they decide to buy.

In a day when most everyone is faced with an overwhelming mountain of text to read (in magazines, newspapers, on their computers, their tablets, and phones)… how do you cut through the clutter? The answer is in your headlines and subheads. You’re getting the “secret sauce” of attracting the attention of readers, standing out in a sea of sameness, and rising above the mass of the mediocre.
  • The most important copy on your sales page is NOT your Headline. In this session, I will prove this – and I’ll show you the exciting implications of this contrarian viewpoint,

  • Turn up the “EQ” with the most powerful (and dangerous) type of headline known to humanity. This is not an exaggeration. Use with caution.
Many would have you believe it doesn’t “work” any more. But I’m here to proclaim the truth: the rumors of the death of email have been greatly exaggerated. The more subtle truth is: what worked 5 years ago won’t work this year. Heck, what worked last year won’t work this year. In this session, you’re finding out what does work. Now.

The most powerful force in copywriting may be the humble bullet point. Have you ever had this experience: you’re reading sales copy, and not sure whether you’re going to buy the product … until you read that one bullet point. That one, incredible, curiosity-invoking bullet point. The one that made you say to yourself: “Okay, I’m going to buy if only to know what the heck this bullet is all about!” Fortunes are made on Bullet Points alone. Nearly every sales letter I see these days has two fatal flaws: (1) not enough bullet points and (2) bullet points done wrong. After this session, your copy will have neither of those flaws.
  • Lessons from The World’s Greatest Copywriter You’ve Never Heard Of. This gentleman gave birth to more profit-pulling copy than 99.99% of all copywriters. Most of that copy was in the form of bullet points.
  • The secret to writing irresistible Bullet Points. How to integrate the 5 Emotional Motivators into your Bullets with ease.
  • The Ultimate Bullet Point Swipe File™. This endless resource of great bullet points will always be available to give you new & innovative bullet point copy.
  • Ray’s Proven 101 Bullet Point Templates. Plug & play – fill in 4-5 blanks once, and generate 101 Bullet Points in seconds.
If I was limited to only one tool in my Copywriter Toolbox, this would be it. If you create a truly irresistible offer, the thing will virtually sell itself. This is harder than you might think – unless you have the secret formula for creating irresistible offers. And now you do.
  • The not-so-obvious components of a truly “irresistible” offer.
  • How to craft your offer in a way that makes the rest of your copy easier to write.
  • The 80/20 Offer Formula – why getting these ratios is important, why messing them up can kill a great offer, and how to get this right every time.
  • The 9 Kinds of Offers. Most copywriters only know about 2 of these. Knowing all 9, how they work, and when to use them takes you from novice to master.
Your job as a copywriter is to remove as much friction from the sales process as possible. The biggest friction point in the sales process is your customer’s fear. It is possible to completely remove that fear and eliminate that friction – if you know what you’re doing.
  • Why a simple, standard “Money Back Guarantee” is required – but still won’t work. What you must do instead.
  • What buyers fear most (it’s not what you think), how it blocks them from purchasing, and how you can totally eliminate this block with my “Tipping Point Protocol.”
  • My 10-Part Guarantee Formula That Works Like a Champ.
  • Total Guarantee Transformation – watch as I take a weak, wimpy Guarantee, and turn it into the most Powerful, Positive, and Persuasive copy on the page.
This is a very weak section of almost every sales letter I analyze. When we were young, most of us were taught: “Don’t talk to strangers.” We were also taught: “Don’t ask people for money.” And then we grow up, become entrepreneurs, and discover we are actually in the business of asking strangers for money. No wonder we have so much inner conflict when it comes to asking for the sale. We ask for the sale hesitantly, haltingly, and ultimately with no conviction.
  • Discover the 7 Deadly Sins of closing copy: which of these do you make? And how much money are these mistakes costing you?
  • The one approach that will allow you to close the deal without “doing the hard-sell.”
  • How to create a “decision-rich environment.” The more opportunities you give your reader to buy, the better the chances he will.
  • My 5 Archetype Closing Copy Templates. Just use these “plug & play” templates, and generate killer closing copy in ten minutes (or less).
Writing copy for a Product Launch is a whole different ball game from normal Copywriting. A “Jeff Walker, PLF®-style launch” is complex. The #1 place people get “stuck” in the process is “writing that pesky sales letter.” I have helped “rescue” many a launch that couldn’t seem to get off the ground. I’ve worked as the lead copywriter on many multi-million dollar launches. I’ve even worked with Jeff Walker himself on launches. Now I’m giving you my best Launch Copy practices, protocols, and tricks. In this session, you’ll receive:
  • The Beginners Guide to Product Launches. If you’ve no idea what makes a Product Launch tick, or if you’ve never looked “under the hood” of a true PLF®-style Launch, I’m giving you the guided tour.
  • Why Launches have not made copy obsolete –on the contrary, launches require more copy than almost any other kind of campaign.
  • My simple Product Launch Genius Map™ of all the copy you need for your product launch.
  • The 12 Vital Components of Product Launch Copywriting.
The advent of video marketing online put fear into many copywriters. The fear was that videos would do the selling, and copy would no longer be needed. Looking back, it’s clear this was a ridiculous idea. Video’s, Livecasts, and Webinars all require more and better copy… not worse and less copy. In this session you’re going to discover…
  • Why you must be able to write Video Sales Copy, and how getting good at this will give you an enormous advantage. (This will only be true for a brief window in time, as the market adapts.)
  • How to write incredibly persuasive Video Sales Copy. What’s different about video copy? Plenty, I’ll break down the 9 Nuances that all great video copy contains, and how to make sure your copy contains them.
  • The Perfect Pitch™ – a proven framework for writing a “sales pitch” for video that is incredibly effective. There are differences between your written sales letter and your video sales letter (VSL)… and failing to recognize these differences can spell disaster for your marketing and sales efforts.
  • The Video Templates: I supply you with my own tested templates to help you craft your VSL, Webinar, or Live Stream.

Without question, the #1 problem faced by people just getting started is: not having an email list. How do you start from scratch, and build a list of subscribers, so that you actually have someone to sell stuff to?

In this brand-new, never-seen-before, full-fledged course, I will walk you through a systematic process. We will start with an idea, validate that idea (to make sure you’re not wasting your time), and then create the product.

While it’s true there are paid services and vendors you can hire to make this go faster, here’s my promise to you: in this course, I will show you how to create a product you can sell for good money (at least $200, perhaps even as much as $1,000)… and we’ll do it using free tools and resources you already have. The only required investment will be your time. You’ll go from idea to income in 30 days or less.

NOTE: this course is new, and I plan to start selling it in the near future for $997. This will likely be your only chance to get the entire course for free.
This is the secret to writing at least 3 times faster… and 3 times better… instantly! No kidding. I’ll show you exactly how to use this trick to speed up your copywriting. While this training is relatively short, it is incredibly powerful and effective.
All great copywriters keep a “Swipe file” – a collection of successful copy they can use for inspiration. I’m providing my most successful copy, plus commentary, and an explanation of how to “Swipe” legally, ethically, and skillfully.

Imagine Your New Life
Let’s try a little “thought experiment.”

Imagine yourself waking up on a bright, sunny morning.

You don’t wake up to an alarm.

You wake up when you’re finished sleeping.

You get out of bed, slip on your robe, and make yourself a cup of coffee (or your favorite morning beverage).

Maybe you’re leaning back in your chair, sipping your beverage, enjoying the morning sun. You check your email, and discover you’ve made thousands of dollars overnight, while you were sleeping.

In fact, you made more money overnight than you used to make in a month.

You decide to spend the day doing what you want, spending time with your friends, instead of “working.”

Life is surely different than it was in the days when you had a “job.”

Fast-forward to the next day. You wake up, have your breakfast, and look at your email again.

Imagine your delight as you realize you made $25,000… just by sending out one email the night before!

Alright, step back from this scene for a minute and ask yourself a very important question.

Just one question.

What if this could be your new way of life?

If that could really be true… aren’t you the least bit excited?

Can you feel the happiness that comes from knowing something good is about to happen?

How much more freedom, happiness, and joy could you be experiencing right now if your life was like the scenes you were just imagining?

Here’s another question to consider: What if you could go through life without worrying about what things cost?

I can certainly remember a time in my life when I couldn’t go to a restaurant without ordering from the right side of the menu…you know, the side with the prices. I always had to check and see how much the food cost before I ordered it.

Do you know what it’s like to never worry about the prices?

Or… what if your annual income became your monthly income?

Think about it – making the same income in a month that you now make in a year. It happened for me.

It’s happened for plenty of others. It can happen for you, too.

Copywriting is the fastest, easiest, and surest way to boost your sales and profits without increasing your advertising or promotional spending.

Are you ready to boost your sales and profits by improving your sales copy?

Get 2 Free Tickets (Worth $5,000 Each) to the 3-Day Live Academy
When you enroll now, in this session of the Copywriting Academy,
you get 2 tickets to my 3-day immersive copy creation event…
Copywriting Academy Live
What is the Difference Between the Live Event and the Online Class

It turns out I’m very good at helping other people move from “good copy” to writing their own BREAKTHROUGH COPY.

Other professional copywriters may hate this about me.

In marketing circles, I’m known for creating copy that produced hundreds of millions of dollars in sales for some of the biggest and most well-known speakers, best-selling authors, and marketers.

In a very short period of time, I have become, as far as I know, the world’s highest paid teacher of direct response copywriting.

What we do in the workshop, that we can’t do in the online course, is … immersion.

We’re locked in a room together with one strategic outcome in mind: get your copy done.

Even if you have no intention of going though the online course, you should enroll… because you get not one, but two tickets to this event.
These Tickets Really ARE Worth $5,000 – EACH!

If you want to come to this event and you’re not a student of Copywriting Academy, you will pay $5,000 per ticket.

And because I’m giving you not one, but two tickets, this bonus is literally worth $10,000. But they are free to you. (You do pay $97 for your binder, reserved seat, and other materials, but each of your two $5,000 event tickets are free.)

So in reality, you’d be kinda crazy to pass this up.

Unless you have all the sales and profits you want.

“Okay, Ray, I’m In! When & Where?”

The Copywriting Academy Live Event Takes Place June 23 – 25, 2017.

We are gathering a group of people…

People like you… who don’t just want to learn how to “write copy,” but who want to master the coveted skill of writing Breakthrough Copy.

Copy that produces multiple millions of dollars in revenue.

The same kind of copy that the pros who have unlimited budgets want… the same kind of copy that those pros, with those unlimited budgets, will pay exorbitant fees for… the same kind of copy my clients have paid me as much as $180,000 for, and that have generated multiples of their investment in sales.

We will gather for three full days, in a yet-to-be-revealed secret location. Secret, but killer-cool.

Hidden away, in our temporary World Copywriting Headquarters, in total isolation, completely away from all distractions (which, by the way, is one of the little-known keys to writing effective Breakthrough Copy) we will sit down and craft your own Breakthrough Copy.

You will arrive fully prepared. (Don’t worry – you’ll get some pre-workshop assignments to complete, and I’ll personally guide you through the preparation process.)

You will arrive knowing what you want to sell, who you want to sell it to, and some information about that market that will enable you to get your Breakthrough Copy written as quickly as possible.

You will arrive having completed a thorough, complex, difficult, sometimes frustrating questionnaire. This questionnaire is more like an interrogation… one that will make you dig for the deepest detail you’ve ever discovered about your own business and your own offer.

After filling out this questionnaire, one of the participants from my last workshop told me on the phone, “I’ve already gotten the entire value of my investment back, just by doing this exercise.”
We are Going to Work for Three Days

I might as well tell you… arrive prepared to write your tail off.

To write until your forearms ache from having pounded the keyboard for so long.

To write until your brain is numb, exhausted from having poured out more creativity in a few hours than you’ve probably generated in the last three years.

To write until the tears flow… tears of fatigue and exhaustion, and more importantly, tears of joy and the thrill of having written copy that can effectively change your world and change your life.

I said earlier that you are only one sales letter away from being a millionaire. And it’s true… provided that it’s the right kind of letter. The kind of letter that invokes not just a response, but a massive and profitable response.

Now I’m not telling you that you are going to become a millionaire because of a letter that you write at this event. There’s no way I can make that kind of claim or guarantee.

But what I can tell you is that you’ll get closer to making that prediction come true by being present with me at this 3-day event. Proximity is power.

And the only way to get this particular proximity is to enroll in the Copywriting Academy before the doors slam firmly shut on Thursday, March 16, 2017, at 11:59 P.M. Pacific Time.

Okay Ray – How Much Is All This Going To Cost?
Well, let’s get some perspective here.

How much is it costing you to not have this program?

No, really. Come up with a number.

Let’s say you currently make $10,000 per month, but you want to make $20,000 per month. That’s a $10,000 shortfall each month.

That’s the same as if you’re writing a check for $10,000 each and every month… for marketing that doesn’t work.

How many months do you want to pay $10,000 for not having the Academy?

$10,000 per month comes out to $120,000 per year.

That’s the cost, in this example, of not being a student in the Academy.
How Much Is It, Already?
The investment in The Copywriting Academy is $1,997.

But the Academy will cost you nothing. Let me explain…

FIRST, the estimated retail value of everything you receive with your enrollment is $26,249.

That’s like getting over 12 TIMES the investment back, instantly, the moment you enroll!

SECOND, you get the skills necessary to MULTIPLY your sales and profits at will. Need an infusion of $10,000 – $50,000 – even $100,000 or more? Write some copy, send it out, and let the money come to you!

THIRD, you receive a very particular set of skills that will stay with you for life. The ROI over your lifetime is incalculable.

FINALLY, you have 30 days to decide for yourself. If the Academy doesn’t work for you, you get your money back.

For those reasons, the Academy costs you nothing.

Unless you don’t buy it.

That will cost you $120,000 a year – or more.

Ready to Take That First Step
Toward Prosperity?
The first step down a new road can be the scariest one to take — but don’t let fear steal your dreams.

After you take the first step, the rest is just as easy as putting one foot in front of the other. And it won’t be long until you’re living that “dream” we talked about earlier.

So…whichever of those “7 Reasons for Resistance” is holding you back – banish them from your path.

Blow through them, break down the barriers, and accelerate toward your future…

Your future filled with prosperity.
The only way products get sold is through the power of great sales copy.

In fact, can you imagine trying to sell anything if you weren’t able to at least explain what it is and what it does?

I challenge you to try. It just doesn’t happen.

Great sales copy is just that, “explaining”. It’s salesmanship in print.

And there are definitely some ways to put your case into words – which work better than others. That’s what you’re about to learn.

Now picture that ideal life in your head right now.

The one you dream of living.

Make it real.

Imagine how you would feel if you were already living that life.

Visualize the way you would breathe if that life was already yours, already a reality.

Now, step through into that picture by taking action and beginning your training…
That’s all there is to it…the rest is laid out for you every step of the way…

One Last Thought
One year from today, God willing, you will still be here on the planet. The question is, will anything in your life be significantly different? The answer: only if you do something significantly different.

Maybe this is that new thing you need to do.

I look forward to getting to know you, inside the Copywriting Academy.

To Your Prosperity,

Ray Edwards
