A very rare two-day training by the creator and founder of the System Seminar, Ken McCarthy. This is not another “me too” copywriting course made up of bits and pieces of commonly circulated advice. It’s about what it really takes to build a solid, seven figure a year income as an info marketer by someone who has done it. Blunt, truthful, and original. There’s nothing else like it.
How To Write Great Copy… Without Needing To Be A Great “Copywriter”
World’s most secretive 7-figure copywriter reveals how he does it…without swipe files, gimmicks or natural writing talent.
Do you know you can multiply the response of all your ads by using a certain (rather crude) swear word?
If you use an order form, do you know you can add as much as 30% (or more) response with a simple graphic in your word processor’s “clip art” gallery?
If you use email, do you know there’s a way to use some of the tactics created by spammers and other “e-criminals” so people are actually happy to hear from you — and even anxious to read your offers?
These are just a few of hundreds of intriguing (and sometimes downright bizarre) copywriting tricks of the trade I learned during a phone call with one of the direct marketing world’s sharpest (and most secretive) copywriters.
I’ll tell you more about this man’s secrets (and how to use them in your own ads) in a second.
But first you should know that, while this man is not a “name” copywriter, he’s easily one of the best copywriters in the world.
He’s actually so good at writing ads guys like Gary Bencivenga (billed “the greatest living copywriter”) and Marty Edelston (founder of one of the biggest direct mail houses in the world)…
Send Him “Fan Mail”
About His Sales Letters!
His stuff is that good.
In fact, world-class marketing genius Dan Kennedy has been using samples of this man’s work for years in his teachings and seminars — including in his best-selling copywriting book, “The Ultimate Sales Letter.”
And when Agora Publishing (another direct mail giant) needed someone to teach the first (and most important) lesson of their advanced copywriting course…the first two people they called were the legendary Jay Abraham…and this man I talked with.
Plus, his own ads often run for several years straight — even against the best copywriters in the world. He has one letter running now set to rake in at least ten million dollars ($1,000 per word) before it runs its course.
Anyway, here’s the point:
Even though he’s not a name copywriter…and even though he doesn’t offer copywriting services…this man is one of the “best of the best.”
And when I got him on the phone he dropped one fascinating copywriting secret after another — tens of thousands of dollars worth of advice — as casually as if he was chatting about the weather.
He told me about an incredibly powerful selling secret (often used by top car salesmen) that almost forces people to believe everything you say in your ads — even if your copy is weak, your claims are outrageous and you have no testimonials or other “proof” elements.
He told me how a lot of copywriters are crippling their income by subscribing to the National Enquirer, Cosmo, and some of the other publications the “gurus” insist you read.
He told me why an ordinary golf course is one of the best places in the world to create your sales letter headlines.
And check this out:
He also shared some of the secrets he learned while interviewing and talking with copywriting legend Gary Bencivenga.
Such as why it’s actually a mistake to spend a lot of money on copywriting books, tapes and seminars…The single best copywriting book ever written (that isn’t even a book about “copywriting”)…And a secret way of writing copy that…
Makes People Afraid To Toss Out,
Delete Or Even Ignore Your Ads!
By the way, I took notes like a madman during this.
ut here’s the thing:
As incredible as all these tactics are…they’re small potatoes compared to the million-dollar secret (he calls the “secret sauce” of copywriting) he revealed at the end of our call.
A secret he’s used for the past 12 years to demolish his competition in one of the most over-heated markets in the world.
In fact, this tactic is so powerful (and simple) you can use it to create money-making ads on your very first try…
Even If You Break Every Copywriting
“Rule” Ever Invented.
Sounds almost impossible, doesn’t it?
I know, but it’s a fact.
And this man I talked with has personally seen people (who knew nothing about marketing and copywriting) create wildly successful ads from scratch using this one, almost laughably easy secret.
Anyway, I’ll tell you more about these incredible copywriting tactics in a minute.
But first, I want to tell you exactly who this “secret” copywriter is.
His name is Ken McCarthy.
And even though he’s mostly known for being a master Internet marketer and pioneer…he’s also one of the best copywriters in the world.
And while I can’t cover everything I learned from Ken in this letter, I can tell you how to get your hands on all the secrets above — plus hundreds more I haven’t told you about — at no risk to you…
And Even Free If You
Last year Ken taught a small group of his friends, students and clients all his copywriting secrets in a closed-door conference in Miami, and taped it.
And besides the people who attended…almost nobody knows these CD’s exist.
Yet, they reveal the hundreds of almost unbelievably effective copywriting tactics Ken has kept to himself for over 30 years.
Secrets he learned while corresponding with the legendary copywriter Eugene Schwartz. While rubbing shoulders with the world’s highest-paid copywriters (like Gary Bencivenga and Dan Kennedy). While studying advanced psychology and neuro-science at Princeton University. And while selling in the most competitive industries in the world — like Wall Street, Hollywood and the “cut throat” music business.
And you know what?
No matter how hard you search…no matter how many “gurus” you study…you can’t find many of these secrets anywhere else.
Because until now…
These Secrets Have Been In
It sounds strange, but it’s true.
Heck, even Ken’s girlfriend Bettina — who has been his business partner for over 15 years, and sees him working all the time — didn’t fully understand how Ken writes his copy until this seminar.
Here are just a few of the little-known secrets you’ll find on these CD’s:
A secret way (almost nobody uses) to legally and ethically make “magic pill” claims in your ads!
How to use an ordinary water cooler to “pre-test” the response-power of your headlines.
Two proven “cures” for writers block. (The first one is simply doing a lot of research. The second one is much easier…and can be found at your corner grocery store.)
The amazing “wealth attraction” secret of two ex-communist military-trained killers! (This is THE big secret behind Ken’s multi-million dollar “System Seminar” business. And it works even if you have no clue how to market, sell or advertise.)
How to get people to instantly stop and read your email pitches — even if you have a weak subject line!
How to get binders full of glowing customer testimonials without resorting to “shameless bribes” or begging.

The incredible joint venture secret Ken used to quickly build a million-dollar business…without even selling anything!
Speaking of joint ventures:
Ken was the first person ever to interview Gary Bencivenga (the world’s greatest living copywriter), and he routinely deals with the biggest names in business and marketing.
How does he do it?
He has discovered a simple way to…
Meet And Joint Venture With Anyone
In The World.
And I really do mean anyone.
In fact, Ken watched his cousin use this secret to do business with the Queen of England.
Plus, it’s so simple it works for almost anyone who uses it. No special contacts, friends in high places or “million dollar rolodex” necessary.
And guess what? Ken’s probably the only copywriter in the world who knows how to do this. And, before this seminar, he never revealed this secret to anyone else — not even his closest friends.

An incredibly simple copywriting secret (Ken discovered while watching a paranoid schizophrenic) that makes researching your ads ten times faster and easier.

Why starting the name of your business with the letter “A” can sometimes drive your sales through the roof…even if you do nothing but wait for the phone to ring!
An enormously profitable sales tactic (discovered in a popular William Shakespeare play) that makes your customers willing to move heaven and earth to order your product…
Even If They Didn’t Originally

How to use your accountant to dramatically increase your sales without paying a penny for his “help.”

Writing Copy Again!
This secret is almost 100 years old now.

How to quickly test multiple different versions of your Internet sales letter without spending a lot of money or even needing to be “computer literate.”
How to get your prospects to order RIGHT NOW…without using phony “must order by midnight” deadlines or other foolish gimmicks that turn people off!

How to make your strongest claims even more powerful…by toning them down.
The incredible copywriting secret found in the Holy Bible that helped one famous copywriter sell hundreds of millions of dollars of books by mail order.

Intends To Screw
You won’t find this secret anywhere else.
And yet, it can easily save you tens of thousands of dollars and put your mind completely at ease when doing joint ventures and other business deals — even if done purely by phone or email.
Anyway, here’s the bottom line:
These are the tactics Ken uses to routinely out-write, out-market and out-sell the best copywriters in the game.
There are secrets in this course you can’t learn anywhere else without writing for decades and reading and absorbing the wisdom of hundreds (if not thousands) of books on selling, copywriting, psychology and even neurology.
When you write copy “Ken’s way”, you can implant buying urges directly in your customers’ minds. Wrap their identities around your business and name. And turn them into lifetime customers that come to you over and over again — happily giving you their money for years in the future!
Quite frankly, many of these selling and persuasion techniques are so powerful…
They’re Sometimes Used
But they’re like fire.
They can be used for good or evil.
And when used ethically for your products and services (which Ken also shows you how to do)…you’ll be unstoppable.
And don’t worry.
Even though these secrets are incredibly powerful and almost unbelievably effective, they are still easy to follow and simple to use.
In fact, many of these secrets are so simple (and so instant) people were using the hotel’s Wi-Fi Internet connection to make “real time” changes to their website copy during the seminar breaks!
That’s how fast, simple and immediately profitable Ken makes writing copy.
And when you learn his secrets you’ll create money-making ads almost at will — without struggling with writer’s block, without relying on swipe files and formulas, and without even needing to be a good “writer.”
So what do these CD’s cost?
The people who were allowed to attend this seminar paid $2,995.00 for a seat — plus food, lodging and airfare. And when Ken first decided to offer these CD’s outside his private list and clients, he wanted to charge more.
But for now (and this price will go up) you can get the entire 3-day seminar on 13 audio CD’s and a printed study guide for three payments of $998 plus shipping and handling or one payment of $2,995 plus shipping and handling.
Plus, Ken has also decided to give you a generous…
Here’s what that means:
You have 30 days to use these copywriting tactics in your ads and sales letters.
If you aren’t 100% happy and satisfied during those 60 days for any reason…Ken will buy the course back from you.
No hassles and no questions asked.
Which means you can basically use everything free, if you choose.
But you have to hurry.
Ken has already raised the price once, and is planning to do so again soon.
This is not some cheap copywriting “gimmick” to get you to order right away, either.
Ken is well-respected in the direct marketing business and routinely raises his prices on his products and services as demand rises.
Plus, he is also talking about removing some of the more “controversial” tactics he doesn’t want a lot of people outside his private list using.
So the only way to make sure you get this raw and “uncut” information is to act now.
