…But those are “famous” wealthy copywriters & entrepreneurs.

What happens when the just-starting-out-hustler uses this simple copywriting “secret”?

blake-secret2

And this freelance copywriter now has too much work because of the “secret”.

And this established freelance copywriter is killing it:

danferrari-secret

Imagine…

Having complete copywriting FREEDOM just 90 days from now (maybe less).

What does that mean?

No more pulling your hair out trying to write a sales letter or ad that converts…

No more failed attempts at coming up with a good selling angle…

No more FEAR and hesitation about what to write…

When you put this “secret” to use, you wont have to worry about all that. You’ll know exactly what you need to write to compel your prospects to act.

You’ll realize that you don’t need a template.

That there is no one perfect script.

You’ll see that solid copywriting and salesmanship skills are already implanted deep inside your brain and that this “secret” will unlock them and guide you to copywriting freedom.

As you can see from the above testimonials the “secret” has something to do with what’s inside my creation called CopyHour…

… but before I tell you about that, I’m going to mess with you a little… but in a good way because you’ll learn a valuable copywriting lesson from it.

I’m NOT going to tell you exactly what the “secret” is just yet because I’ve opened up what’s known to us in the copywriting biz as an “open loop”.

An “open loop” is any aspect of your sales letter or story that doesn’t tie up immediately.

You know how at the end of the show LOST when something crazy happened and you’d feel a deep urge to watch again the next week.

Calling this strategy that I’m about to show you a “secret”, was my way of opening a loop and getting you to read further down the page.

You want to know what the “secret” is…

And you’ll read on to find out more because…


YOU have a copywriting problem…


More correctly, we all have this problem.

Copywriting is tough. It takes effort. It takes hard mental focus.

Mostly, it takes a ton of research to figure out exactly who our ideal customer is, and how to speak to them in a way that compels them to take action.

When you sit down to write some sales copy, you get stuck.

You don’t know how to start…

You don’t know how to finish…

You start thinking you need to add more “power words”…

You wonder how to ‘frame’ the offer…

You scream that you need a template to work off of… but you can’t find one…

You start thinking about ways to “trick” your prospect… then you stop… and say, “I’m not trying to trick my potential client.”

“I have a valuable product or service. I just need to know how to express that.”

Look, writing sales copy ain’t easy. If it was, everyone would do it.

If it were as easy as 1.2.3. people wouldn’t pay me a minimum of $10,000 per copywriting assignment… or pay one of my students over $100K for re-writing about 500 words of one section of a sales page!

And here’s the vicious truth that you might be avoiding…


Copywriting = Freedom


Want to make more money than you are right now?

Learn to write good sales copy.

If you can write good copy, you will never struggle to make money.

Clients will pay you top dollar for your work.

And if/when you create your own products you wont be at the mercy of Google or penguins or algorithm updates or any other SEO stuff.

You won’t be building an empire on quicksand.

And you’ll have the unique ability to say to yourself, “Hmm, I want to make a bunch of money today.”

Then crank out a simple sales letter in a couple of hours.

And make money with it that day… and for years afterward!

Then you can move on to the next project with confidence. And the next. And the next.

This is reality for a small number of people who put in the small amount of work up-front to learn this “secret”.

I asked CopyHour members to rate, on a scale of 1 to 5, their copywriting knowledge before and after they began implementing this simple “secret”.

copyhour-self-rated

Look at it again — a 89% increase in copywriting knowledge…

Do you think these people are still struggling as much to create a sales page or launch a marketing campaign? CopyHour produces insane clarity in ANY marketing effort.

The Story Of How I Unlocked This Copywriting “Secret”


I’m Derek Johanson, and I’m an addict.derek-delmar

I’m addicted to CopyHour and the “secret” because it continually helps make me money… that I tend to lose…

(I have two main gigs at the moment: One is an ecommerce clean beauty subscription box company I run with my wife. The other is CopyHour & all our associated informational courses and products.)

Anyway, just before I created CopyHour I woke up and faced facts: the “path” to the kind of business freedom I wanted was obvious.

I desperately wanted to make more money in my business and from all of my efforts. And to do so, I desperately wanted to develop stronger copywriting skills.

And I’d known about Halbert’s “secret” for years!

I also had heard from others that it worked like magic, almost immediately.

But I was one of “those people”… who knew how powerful this “secret” was, and how important it was, and how valuable it was…

And how it was one of the only things that could directly make all my marketing efforts worth 2x to 10x more than they are now, without any boosts in traffic or other changes…

But, for whatever reason, I still wasn’t just doing it!

Just like every single other struggling entrepreneur.

Probably like you if you’ve heard of this “secret” before…


So What The Heck Is This “Secret”?


Here’s the “secret” popularized by Gary Halbert:

1. Build a swipe file of high-converting, tested, and winning ads

2. Copy each of those ads in your own handwriting to “internalize” and absorb the style into your subconscious

3. And do it every… single… day, for a minimum of 30 days, to “program” persuasive copywriting ability into your brain (longer = better)

Maybe you’ve read this advice before. Every single copywriter and entrepreneur will tell you over and over again how it’s almost like magic, it works so well… if you actually do it.

In fact, maybe it’s old hat to you by now. “Duh… I know all this already. Tell me a new trick.”

But wait… have you ever actually DONE THIS ONE?

And I mean **really** done it…

Check out this quote from Dan Kennedy, pulled directly from his book “No BS Wealth Attraction”:

“I’m often asked by other, much less wealthy copywriters what they need to do to [make money] like I do… I tell them the advice I got from famous copywriter Gary Halbert — which I followed — about rewriting in longhand at least 500 long-running, successful direct response ads and sales letters in order to train your subconscious mind.

And check out this interview between two prominent copywriters (emphasis mine):


Ben Settle: [talking about his early days copywriting] … just thinkin’ ahead, “I should get on second shift,” because now I had all this time at work where, yeah, I’m doin’ a job, but I’m also studying copywriting and marketing stuff and I’m writing ads. I spent a lot of time handwriting ads out back then —

Doberman Dan: I’m sorry to interrupt. You really did that?

Ben Settle: Yeah.

Doberman Dan: That’s awesome. I’m sorry. Keep goin’ ‘cause I tell people to do that all the time, very few actually do.

Ben Settle: Yeah, what I would do is – that was a big part of my education. … I would just handwrite ads out. … I mean, it’s just a real good way to get it ingrained in your head how to structure ads and that sort of thing.

Doberman Dan: Wow, I didn’t know you’d done all that, but a lot of people have been told to do that and they don’t but, yet, you did. Look at the result: You’ve been making your fulltime living from this for quite a while now.

Ben Settle: … I think copying out ads is essential, but the problem is most people aren’t that into it. So unless someone’s really into it, they’re probably not gonna do it.

And here’s a quote taken from copywriter Ted Nicholas’s “87 Marketing Secrets Of The Written Word”:

Below is an email an 8-figure ‘underground’ copywriter wrote to a marketing mastermind I belong to. He was describing how to get better at sales copy:

… And the really cool part, even famous authors (not just copywriters) talk about the benefits of copying great writing.


Dan writes:

He copied successful people who had done exaclty what it is he wanted to do. Donald said that he didn’t learn to write during his college education (go figure), instead he started typing out— verbatim— his favorite stories from authors like Hemmingway, Flannery O’conner, and others. Who says we don’t have the opportunity to learn directly from the best and brightest? He did this for a few years. Link

… And these authors might have even improved their learning if they’d have written books out by hand. Here’s a recent news headline:



“Mediocrity Rules The Marketplace”


Most people won’t ever put in the time to become better at what they do. They settle for mediocre ability, and mediocre results.

“Mediocrity rules the marketplace.”

The rare 1% who do put in the time, even if it’s just a little bit, absolutely clean up… almost effortlessly.

When you actually sit down and do this exercise… it’s deceivingly hard.

I mean, it’s simple to do in theory. But in practice… not so much.

It’s a lot like going to the gym.

In theory it’s a great idea. But when it’s time to lace up your sneakers and head out… well, your mind will find any reason not to do it.

But if you’ve got something to keep you accountable to it… you’ll go. Every day. (And be extremely grateful you did after only a few short weeks!)


CopyHour’s VERY Simple Method…


What I’ve done is taken the handwriting “secret” and created a legitimate training system AND accountability system for you to get these exercises done.

I have a VERY simple method… one that doesn’t give you the option of “giving up” and screwing yourself over… and if you’re really serious about this, I’m going to let you in in a second.

The way it works is simple.

Every single week day you’ll receive an e-mail with a full copy of a TESTED, PROVEN, WINNING ad to write out by hand.

Alongside the handwriting, you’ll also get a copywriting lesson teaching you how to apply what you’re learning to your own writing.

Your job is to simply set aside 30 minutes to an hour (I recommend first thing in the morning, immediately after getting up) and do it.

And as an added accountability tool, you can head over to the Facebook Group, check-in and watch a 20-60 minute video of me going over each assignment… describing the structure, why it worked, and how to use it to make money with your copy.

What’s the point of doing this?

Well, when you see that lots of other people have also done the exercises, it creates accountability.

You feel committed to actually doing the exercises, rather than allowing yourself to slack off.

Simple, but very powerful.

If you miss a day, it’s no big deal.

Seriously, things happen.

If you can do the exercises 5 days a week, that’s awesome. If you can only do them 1 day a week, that’s fine too.

You will get out of this as much as you choose to put in.

Will CopyHour Work For You?

I want to be crystal clear on something: CopyHour is unlike any other course you’ve ever taken.

It is not only a training system, it’s also an accountability system. We deliver the course through what I call a “dispersed learning system”.

Think about all the books you’ve purchased but never read.

All the courses you’ve started but never finished.

When you get a shotgun of information all at once, it’s too much. You get overwhelmed.

You want to block out time to complete the course materials but something always seems to pop up. The fires you need to put out are too great and you never follow through.

Because I deliver this course through email, I’m able to see how far people get into the materials by tracking open rates. At the end of 3 months, a full 80% of students are still opening and consuming the content.

How many courses can say that they have a completion rate of 80%? Not many.

I’m not only providing you with training that will take your copywriting to the next level… I’m also providing a system that will FORCE you to follow through.

That said, I do not want to waste your time so please carefully read the following:


CopyHour Is Not Right For You If:

You are looking only for shortcuts and fill-in-the-blank templates. I do provide structures, frameworks, and templates within CopyHour. However, you’re not a good fit for this course if you just want to play copywriting Mad Libs and never think for yourself.

You don’t believe studying history in any way shape or form can help you in the present. I focus mainly on modern-day sales messages. However, we do look at older ads from time to time. If the ad is older, I tell you exactly how to apply what you’ll learn to today’s marketing & copywriting world. It’s like studying history or reading a bibliography. The same themes pop up over and over again. Old campaigns hold a treasure trove of useful information and ideas.

As an example, did you know that Dos Equis “Most Interesting Man in the World” concept was almost entirely ripped from an old David Ogilvy ad for the “Man in the Hathaway Shirt”?

You think handwriting is a waste of time. While you’ll still get tons of value out of CopyHour if you don’t hand copy, it’s an exercise I’d (obviously) recommend. No, I don’t think you should hand copy endlessly until the end of the time but at least for first few weeks of the course I need you to be open and willing to give it a shot.


CopyHour Is RIGHT For You If:

You’re eager to learn about sales copywriting and have an open mind. You’d like to learn from someone who’s had a hand in shaping the minds of today’s greatest copywriters. (Dan Ferarri, Ian Stanley, Dan Meredith).

You’re a business owner or freelancer who wants to get started and you know learning sales copy is an invaluable skill that could means millions of dollars in sales.

You can set aside a few minutes each day to work on a skill that will carry with you for a lifetime.

You are willing to actively participate. You need to be willing to write your OWN copy and not just handwrite. Handwriting aids the learning process and is like a football player studying film. Writing your own copy is like practice. (Publishing your own copy is like playing the actual game and in this analogy I’m like your football coach!)

CopyHour can be a challenging course however, students who follow along and do the work, typically see amazing results in their confidence & income. If you’re curious as to whether or not my system works, just take a look at the testimonials above & down below

buythiscourse

When I heard about CopyHour, I knew it offered a ridiculously great offer: spend one hour a day working on Copy Hour exercises for 60 days, and your copywriting skills will skyrocket.

I had read a couple of books on copywriting, and I would say I knew more about copywriting more than the average person, but I didn’t know what it’s like to write a great ad. I’m still far from being able to write great ads that would make me a millionaire, but now I have more intuitive understanding of how great ads work–my hand knows how.

It’s been only a month and a bit since I started CopyHour, and I’m surprised by how much I learned Copy Hour. Using my new skills, I was able to spot what was missing from my friend’s sales page, and also I managed to write my first copy for another friend’s project. What’s more exciting is that this knowledge is expanding everyday thanks to CopyHour.

If I can do this much after one month, what will I be able to do in one year? I truly wish I had known about Copy Hour earlier!

How Much Does It Cost To Become An Incredible Copywriter?


CopyHour is a very unique system – there’s really nothing like it on the market.

I will say that my good buddy Clay (who you’ll see below) spent over $2,000 for training materials from a big name copywriter (who also appears on this page).

Clay told me that he learned a lot with that $2,000 course but in the end it was fairly disappointing. He felt that CopyHour was much more valuable and at an extreme fraction of the cost.

Before I tell you how much CopyHour is, let me total up the value of all the components you’re getting.

Over next several weeks (which will be the best of your life because you’ll become an INSANE copywriter) you’ll get about 90 lessons.

Each lesson takes me a couple hours to put together. At the moment, I value my time in these matters at about $1500/hr. That’s a $135,000 value 🙂

There’s the website that costs me about $800 a year in hosting to run. I’ll only charge you 10 cents for that though because we’ll split up the costs amongst members.

You could say that the Facebook group is priceless because you’ll also get to interact with other CopyHour members…

And now the proven sales letter swipes. You’ll have access to hundreds of them. Some of these sales letters are hard to find… but let’s talk about the value of these swipes.

If you look at how much money these sales letters and ads pulled in for various people and companies, you’re looking into the BILLIONS. That’s not an exaggeration.

Let’s just say they’re worth 1 million for simplicity sake though.

So, $135,500 + 10 cents + 1 million = $1,135,000.10

The total value of CopyHour is $1,135,000.10 but you’ll be able to join today only for well under that! haha.

But seriously, wouldn’t you agree, that paying $2,000 to become a master salesman and copywriter… to literally change the way you think and structure the way you speak, write and present offers, would be an absolute game-changer for you… and be worth every single penny?

If you use just one snippet of knowledge from doing these exercises you’ll make huge multiples of your money back.

But I’m not going to charge you $2,000. I’d be justified in charging that much and most dedicated entrepreneurs would hand that amount to me without batting an eyelash. Especially considering how much a good copywriter is worth… and how much money they demand to write a converting sales letter.

And obviously, the higher amount you pay, the more committed you’ll be squeezing the most value out of your time with CopyHour.

But I want CopyHour to be accessible to every entrepreneur, consultant, & freelancer who wants it.

That’s why you can join right now for just a few bucks per day.


Exploit My 90-Day Money-Back Guarantee… & Stay In The System Even If You Refund


I have had under 30 refunds in the ENTIRE 6 YEAR HISTORY of CopyHour. And all of them were from people who refused to do the exercises or simply didn’t have the time.

So that’s why I’m confident enough to offer this guarantee:

I’ll leave you in the system even if you refund. Just e-mail me (hit ‘respond’ on any of the daily e-mails you get)… I’ll give you your money back… and leave you in the system if you want.


Can You Trust Me?


Look at this interaction on Twitter. The first guy is asking about CopyHour and thinks it might be a scam. Then Rob responds that CopyHour is recommended by John whose testimonial you saw at the top of the page:

And then John responded with this:

And Marcus ended up joining.


Do you understand the value of these exercises?


I know that some people don’t care about becoming a bad-ass copywriter.

They don’t care about having the ability to pump out a short letter in two hours that could make them tens of thousands of dollars.

And they don’t care about having the ability to do that over, and over, and over again.

They don’t “get it”.

But if you’re one of the rare **SMART** entrepreneurs who understands the huge, huge, HUGE value that being a top-tier marketing mind will have on your business (95% of people on this page now don’t get this)… or you understand that even a 10% improvement in your copywriting ability now will turn into an exponentially BIGGER improvement in your income levels…

Then this is a complete no-brainer.

Here’s an email friend & entrepreneur Clay Rogers sent to me:

You also need to understand the value of the simple act of paying for something.

Money acts as a “people filter” and a psychological commitment mechanism.

It raises the quality of the community, and your commitment to actually performing these exercises which will make you exponentially more money back.

If you want to join our club of hustlers, you need to PAY… AND TAKE ACTION.


But Wait! There’s More In 2018!


I’ve added another incredible bonus:

It’s true that you can ask me plenty of questions in the Facebook group and I’ll often get to them live.

However, I’d like to go deeper with my paying customers and get specific in answering your most pressing questions… plus, I’d like to take a look at your copy and give you feedback!

So, when you join CopyHour, you’ll also get access to 2 private, closed door calls where you can submit copy or questions to me and get live personalized feedback off of Facebook. Again, this will be for paying customers only.

As part of this bonus, you’ll also receive access to a bonus vault of 6 advanced training and Q&A sessions I did with CopyHour members.

These calls go deep into advanced copywriting and persuasion tactics and you’ll get to hear my answers to hard copywriting questions.

Plus, in these bonus calls, you’ll get to see me tear down sales copy.

Now It’s Time To Get Off The Fence…


This is the part of the sales letter where I tell you have a decision to make and try to get you “off the fence” and into a buying decision.

Here’s an unsolicited comment in a forum full of budding entrepreneurs:

Here are more happy CopyHour clients:

“CopyHour rocks, it’s convenient, loaded with great content and has sharpened the hell out of my Copywriting Chops. My clients dig my improved skills also.”

– Garri

“CopyHour opened my eyes to true, well-done copywriting. Each example taught me a lesson in how to write, the art of persuasion, what works and what doesn’t. Who knew copying ads by hand would be so beneficial? Totally recommended for anyone who wants to sharpen their writing skills.”

– Mary Kate Feeney

By far the best site I’ve ever joined. The exercises have not only improved my copywriting, it has also improved every other type of writing I do.

CopyHour has also giving me the drive and motivation to improve my writing day after day.

– Jon Bishop

This program is truly phenomenal. I come from having recently graduated from a top tier university with a degree in Political Science. Four years and $200,000 of debt later, I have ZERO marketable skills that can actually help me make money.

I’ve learned more marketable skills in one month of CopyHour then I did in four years of University. Derek, you kick ass.

– Udae S.

The CopyHour method is a great way to actually get some “hands on” practice … a way to study the best sales letters by actually writing them out and cutting your left and right brain loose (together) so that you actually absorb the methodology and science behind them.

I highly recommend CopyHour to anyone thinking about entering this field, or is already in it and desires to perfect their practice.

– Ken Fitzhugh

Join us now, or don’t. It’s your career on the line.

I recommend it. You do it. You feel better. You live a happy & wealthy life.

Sincerely,

– Derek “Your Copywriting M.D.” Johanson

See that picture above? That’s me (right) with Sean Ogle (left) and Clay Rogers (center). We’re at Hotel Ambos Mundos in Havana, Cuba. In this hotel, Ernest Hemingway began “For Whom The Bell Tolls” — a book worth copying.

It’s fitting that we smoked cigars in the hotel where a legendary book was first started…

Why? Because both of those guys pictured with me there are CopyHour members. And both have made some damn good money with their copywriting skills.

And you know what?

We’re just getting started.

P.S. CopyHour’s entrance fee is almost definitely a tax deductible business expense (ask your tax advisor).

P.P.S. Your copywriting & marketing knowledge should at minimum double by going through CopyHour, guaranteed, or your money back.

(If you leave this page and go back to wasting your time trolling Facebook, you’ll FOREVER regret it… and you’ll miss out on ALL the experiences that money can buy. Take massive action & join us now.)

Frequently Asked Questions

Question: “Derek, can you tell me EXACTLY what I get when I join CopyHour?”

You skimmed the sales letter my friend, didn’t you? But that’s okay, I still love you.

Here’s how CopyHour works:

Right when you join you’ll create a login for the CopyHour members area. You’ll have access to ALL the bonus training materials.

The course will start on the following Monday when Module 1 will be released. The training modules are released every week.

Alongside the training modules, you’ll receive 90 days of assignments via email. These assignments include training and example copy. We’ll look at some older sales letters but mostly modern day sales pages, VSL’s, and email sequences that are converting.

CopyHour follows a full SALES MESSAGE STRUCTURE that you can use. Each assignment will show you how the ads and sales messages we’re looking at fit into this structure.

I’ll send you an assignment at 6pm-9pm your local time, Sunday-Thursday night. Friday will have a bonus assignment for Saturday. And Saturday night’s assignment will be to take Sunday completely off.

You’ll read the copy, then go to sleep.

First thing in the morning, if you can swing it, you’ll wake up, read the training lesson, and hand copy the ad or sales letter (most hand copying assignments are short).

Then, you’ll check the Facebook group, watch a video of me explaining more about the assignment, and discuss the ad with others.

Question: “Is it mostly just handwriting?”

Nope!

Again, CopyHour follows a full SALES MESSAGE STRUCTURE that you can use. Each assignment will show you how the ads and sales messages we’re looking at fit into this structure.

I break out the most important elements of a sales messages to focus on — Headlines, Leads, Sales Arguments, Offers, and Closes.

I also go on prospect Awareness Levels and other Advanced copywriting strategies and tactics.

Using the structures I’ve developed, you really won’t have any excuse for NOT being able to write a successful ad, sales letter, email series, content marketing piece or any other sales message in 3 months time.

Simply follow the structure, and you’ll be ahead of 95% of people writing copy out there.

… You’ll know exactly how to START a sales letter or VSL.

… What to say in the ad leading to your sales letter.

… What type of headline to write.

… How to structure the “middle” portion of your letter.

… What to include in your offer…

… And how to close the letter with logical and emotional arguments.

On top of this structure I also have a FULL RESEARCH PROCESS. I’ll show you, from start to finish, how to gather the information you need to write a persuasive message.

Question: “Does CopyHour teach me how to get copywriting clients?”

The main focus of CopyHour is on building the skill of writing copy… that’s why it works well for both freelancers and business owners.

But, I realized very early on that a lot of CopyHour members want training on getting clients… so I’ve added a bonus program to CopyHour called “The Cartel”.

The Cartel is training for beginning freelancers and marketing consultants on getting clients.

It includes training materials, swipe files & marketing templates for your freelance copywriting business.

To create the training materials for the Cartel, I brought in Ed Stapleton Jr.

You’re going to love Ed – he’s a copywriter & a marketing consultant based in New York.

Ed is a fantastic person to spearhead this group because he’s successful… but in a different way. He’s not an uber-guru who gets clients based solely on his relative fame &/or a fancy blog. He doesn’t even have a website.

Ed’s essentially sitting right where you are right now (besides the referrals he gets) when he’s searching for new work.

And Ed is still able to demand high prices – he doesn’t normally take a job for less than $10,000. He’s currently MILKING a percentage deal with a roofer who is doing 5 million a year.

Some of our early success stories include:

Anne – She booked her first job with a personal trainer. It’s a 10 month contract and she gets paid at the beginning of each month. You can listen to our interview with her when you join.
Debra – Her first job was a 6 month, $12,000 contract! Wowza. Debra paid for the equivalent of 240 months of Cartel membership with that job.
Blake – Blake had literally been studying copywriting for 1 month before he landed his first job… and then 2 weeks later he booked his first 4 figure job.

This product previously sold for $30/month. You’ll get lifetime access for free (no on-going charges) which makes this bonus worth $500.

FYI: You’ll get IMMEDIATE access to the Cartel when you join.

Question: “So what that makes CopyHour the best copywriting training course on the planet?”

I’m glad you asked. 🙂

Handwriting + Curation + Group Accountability + Training

Tell me another product out there that’s making writing sales copy so easy, simple, and clear. You can’t.

And that’s why companies are sending their marketing and copywriting team members to CopyHour to get up-to-speed fast.

Automattic — the billion dollar company that started a little thing called “WordPress” — sent over 3 members of their team to CopyHour last year.

I just want you to imagine for a second what it’ll be like to write sales copy that converts. What will that mean for you and your business? That’s what I’m ultimately delivering with CopyHour.

“I can’t join right now, will CopyHour open again soon?”

Prepare yourself for a statement that will sound like hypey marketing speak!

Each year and I tweak the launch model for CopyHour — especially when I find something that I think will help the most amount of customers.

So, CopyHour will most likely open again for a group round in January but it’s not 100% and I don’t know at what price point.

This course & community are constantly evolving – and the price has steadily been rising. I’m building businesses right along side you all (our organic beauty product subscription business is growing steadily).

I have “skin in the game” and CopyHour is starting to dominate my time.

Listen, I’ve made the majority of my best money decisions quickly — especially when there’s high upside and low risk.

Ask anybody in the marketing business if CopyHour is worth the investment? Literally ask anyone… they’ll tell you it is.

That’s your upside: “What if Derek’s not lying about this handwriting exercise & the value of CopyHour?” What if Dan Ferrari, Dan Meredith, Ramit Sethi, Sean Ogle, Ian Stanley, Ryan Levesque, Mike Hrostki, and Lindsay Sacks aren’t lying?

And your downside… if they are lying? You can get a refund. That’s as close to zero risk as anything you’ll find in life right there.
