“John Carlton is a copywriter I would hire, and there are damn few of those. Further, I would pay to be in a room to learn from him, and there are even fewer people on that list.”

Dan Kennedy, Author, No B.S. Marketing Series

Perry Marshall

“John’s input on my website increased my flow of sales leads by 50%. Also, his advice to trash my sales letter and start fresh (with very specific instructions on how to do it) DOUBLED my sales conversion rate! He was right — this gets exciting, fast.”

Perry Marshall, Bestselling author of Ultimate Guide to Google AdWords and Ultimate Guide to Facebook Advertising

Kevin Rogers

I was a former dead-broke comedian with a few sales letters under my belt when I discovered Carlton’s teaching. John’s coaching and the SWS are responsible for millions of dollars in revenue to my business. SWS is like injecting persuasion into your brain and feeling it shoot from your fingertips.

“Over 6 figures/year into my pocket.”

“For me… Copywriting was my lacking skill…

I never knew how to write effective copy, and John you’ve done a GREAT job… the SWS blows away any “system” I’ve seen in a long time. It’s pretty much idiot proof.

To top it off, my motivation after this course has never been so high… Since starting it I’ve sold 2 new franchisees (which adds over 6 figures/year into my pocket. I’m starting to blast off writing follow up sequences….I’ve also finalized my entire franchise manual for all of my stores, and my web guy is starting to build a new website for my retail stores and will use your copywriting to make it smash the competition as well as build an avenue through the site to franchise even more…

I can’t thank you enough… this is a program geared for REAL business minded people… it’s the real deal… not some fancy, full of fluff, way of repackaging old basic marketing. Thanks John!”

Topped Our Best Month Ever… In Just One Week With New Tactics

“In the last 3 months conversions on my website have gone through the roof. Last week we had 17 sales ($300 info product) with less than 300 unique visitors to the site, which is by far the best
month we ever had in just 1 week.
My data base guy is foaming at the mouth to find out why my analytics data is sending such a huge spike in conversions and my bounce rate plummeting to the bottom of the Grand Canyon. I implemented changes to my site as I was progressing within the Simple Writing System Training Program and realized after week 3 that I had all my money back. I truly can’t wait to see what happens to my bank account and my list at the end of the year!”

Peter IppolitoPeter IppolitoSan Salvador – CuponClub.net

We have top a “Daily Deal” site in El Salvador and Guatemala that sells big discount coupons for restaurants, hair salons, mechanics, hotels, etc.

Inspired by what Carton teaches about “One-Two Punch Bullets” in the SWS, last week we split-test the bullets we’ve been using on three of our offers.

The results were wild. All 3 resulted in a statistically significant increase in sales.

Argentinian Sausage Sandwiches: 12% increase over the control

Hotel and Spa Day: 28% increase over the control

Weight Loss Treatment: 85% increase over the control

We didn’t change anything else. Just the 4-5 bullets near the top of the page.

Goes to show that copy REALLY matters.

30% Boost In Conversions

“I have been using some of the things John teaches in our email campaigns for our free workshop and our attendance each week has gone up by about 40%. I also used some of his suggestions in the power point for the free workshop and our conversion rate to the paid workshop has increased by about 30%. We were converting about 5% to a $1,297 workshop, now we are just under 7% conversion.

Sean QuinnSean Quinn

“In Northern Ireland, bricks and mortar businesses are beginning to realize they need to evolve. So I’m writing their sales and marketing funnels, from opt-in video scripts, free reports, direct response letters, to posts and emails for nurturing campaigns.

Good copy and sales funnels are a whole new concept to almost all of them, which gives me an endless stream of prospects.

At last it’s paying off.

The Simple Writing System Coaching (and persistence) has given me the advantage over other copywriters, but I keep cool, and stay modest.

What I’ve learned from you means I know how to can help clients in almost any industry.

My thanks to you and John.”

Lorrie Morgan-FerreroLorrie Morgan-FerreroRedHotCopy.com

“When my copywriting business was operating in the red, I bit the bullet and invested in John’s stuff. Know what? I started making money. Lots of it. The subtle tweaks and step-by-step system I learned from John shot conversion rates through the roof. And I confidently raised my fees by 60% because of everything I learned from him… and my fees continue to rise.”

[Disclosure: Lorrie has turned into such a successful copywriter and consultant that she’s become a frequent Simple Writing System’s Coach.]

Andrew HryniewiczAndrew HryniewiczChelsea, UK – AndrewWayfinder.com

Before SWS I struggled, rambled and “explained” my unique, and (very) hard-to-describe spirit coaching and healing work.

Now… I know what and how to say (and structure) my message to make readers say ‘That sounds amazing…’.

I’m finding that the words and pages I need are just flowing out!

Everyone promises “to crack the code”. John (and the great SWS teachers) deliver!

Massive thanks.

Craig WoolvenCraig WoolvenSydney, Australia

“Your Simple Writing System has instantly turbo-charged my sales letters. $11,000 of new business in 48 hours using just a few of your wickedly effective sales strategies.

John, your Simple Writing System is my step-by-step blueprint for writing killer, kick-ass sales letters. At last, a simple step-by-step system that pulls together all the elements of writing sizzling, money-in-the-bank sales letters.

The videos explain exactly what to do… the workbook is chock-a-block-full of real world examples and my personal tutor made sure I nailed every exercise. Your red-hot team of million dollar writing tutors delivered the personal attention needed to catapult my writing skills to a whole new level.

I now know what to say and exactly how to write it. Powerful, laser targeted sales copy at my fingertips using your step-by step process. Absolutely awesome — thanks John.”

Michael NormanAustralia

Free Money!

“Amazing! My web site conversion rate has nearly DOUBLED, just from what you’ve taught me. And guess what? Also following your advice, I tested a much higher price… and the conversion rate was not affected at all. That’s FREE MONEY without any extra work! You were right, John.”

$287,000 The First Week!

“After listening to John for less than an hour, my mind caught fire and everything fell into place. I immediately produced my first sales letter ever… and it brought in $287,000 the first week! You can bet I seek out his advice every time I make a major business decision.”

Michael RichesonMichael RichesonNewberg, OR

“Brought in more than a dozen high-ticket members ($4,000+ each).”

“I read “Kick-Ass Copywriting Secrets” a few months ago. It was so good I bought the Simple Writing System course. A couple weeks ago I had a chance to put it all together for a client of mine. Using what learned, I wrote a Facebook ad, a 3,000-word sales letter, and an email sequence.

The ad finished with a 6 percent CTR, the sales letter had a nearly 30 percent completion rate, and the email sequence (so far) has brought in more than a dozen high-ticket members ($4,000+ each). All from a $150 ad spend.

No way I could’ve pulled that off without John’s book and course. Thanks for all the valuable info!”

John Carlton is one of the best marketers in marketing HISTORY. I have learned a ton from him… and you should soak up everything from him that you can. It will only help you make more money from your Internet marketing efforts.”

“When John talks about changing your life, he’s not kidding around.”

“Just before the famous StomperNet launch, everything was in doubt. We cornered John for advice, and in just a few minutes he provided such clarity that the fog melted away… and I was finally able to write the pitch that made Internet marketing history, with record results.

That’s twice he’s helped me — long ago, when I was broke, clueless and desperate, I somehow found John’s ‘Kick Ass’ course… and halfway through, a calm confidence came over me. I told my wife that everything was going to be all right, because this really made sense. When John talks about changing your life, he’s not kidding around.”

[Full Disclosure: We received this quote from Frank before he was “the Frank Kern”, the well-known marketing expert. I had yet to meet him when he first bought and read my course. We are now colleagues and recommend each other’s materials.]

“SWS is the first course I’ve completed without the fear of ‘what to do next’.

I now have a road map to help me write copy that sells.

You know that saying… ‘Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime!’

That to me is the essence of the SWS Coaching Program!”

Million Dollar Confession

Early in my career, I had the good fortune to discover John Carlton — and he deserves much of the credit for my success as a freelancer. I hereby confess that many of the ideas behind the million-dollar controls I’ve written can be directly traced to what I learned or stole from John.”

Tanja PislarTanja Pislar@tanjapislar, UK

The SWS is the FIRST and ONLY online course that I ever finished. Ever. And I bought a few of them that are out there. The SWS is that good.

You get your own, personal, PROFESSIONAL copywriting instructor.

One that does this for a living, for BIG MONEY.

You spend 8 weeks with him and he helps you develop your sales letter specific to YOUR situation.

I entered the course as a rookie… and left it with a clear idea what a winning sales letter looks like.

Now, I have the recipe to write my own. A checklist that will sit on my desk for a long time.

I already went through all the material a couple of more times since the course finished.

I loved this course so much that I am now pursuing this as something I want to do for money – a career change. From a web developer, I am training to become a professional direct response copywriter.

Seriously, if anyone reading this is on the fence – just click that button and buy it. You will definitely finish this course – it won’t stay unwrapped under your bed 🙂

Profits Through The Roof

“I used Carlton’s tactics in my advertising online, and profits went through the roof. That meant we could move into a bigger house, and I’ve kit it out with the most amazing high-tech gear. I would not be here today without John’s help”

Harlan KilsteinHarlan KilsteinTheDogingtonPost.com

Million-Dollar Advice

“John’s first critique of my copy was a shock — I thought I was pretty darned good, but he told me to rip it up and start over from scratch, using his specific advice.

I’m glad I had the sense to listen — my first year, with John’s advice stinging in my ears, I earned over $350,000. And this year, I’m bringing in a cool million.

Disclosure: Harlan’s arguably John Carlton’s most tenacious and successful student. He’s one of the Simple Writing System’s top coaches.

Boosted sales by 70%

“Your headline suggestion for one of my web sites boosted sales by 70%! This equals an extra $3,000 every month…from ONE simple change. Thanks.”

Daniel AxelrodDaniel AxelrodRealSalesCopy.com

Within 10 days of graduating from the Simple Writing System Coaching Program:

— I went to a James Malinchak seminar where merely mentioning I completed SWS led to attendees scheduling a sales call to discuss copy services. One person even said “I was so proud of myself for doing the videos on my own and you actually did the coaching program! You must be amazing now.” So yes, there is credibility in The Simple Writing System name.

— A company where I’ve been working as a part-time copywriter has been so impressed with me taking them through the SWS steps that they’ve asked me to come on board as Director of Brand Marketing with a robust salary package.

— The CEO of that company has told the sales directors to consult me on all new sales scripts. Rather than being irritated by the new guy taking over, they LOVE it. The top sales director told me she wants to carry a recorder when I explain sales concepts because there’s so much gold. I gave her a line of sales copy today for new sales trainees, and she exclaimed “Oh my God, THAT’S HOT!!” so loud the entire office heard and probably assumed something inappropriate.

And ALL of this is even before applying the concepts to writing copy! Robert’s critiques have not only helped my copy but totally revolutionized my understanding of how selling works.

I was terrified to even think that I had to write my own sales copy.

SWS Coaching program was the missing link between all my efforts and the results I was hoping to get from my website.

Before taking this coaching I was terrified to even think that I had to write my own sales copy, my own emails, video script or a blog post where I had to present something and hope to convince the reader to buy what I had to sell.

Add to this the fact that I am not a native English speaker and I will let you do the math…

The result of taking this coaching: I crafted my own sales letter (under the careful guidance of the coaches).

I am much more clear about the sales process of my products.

I now have a blueprint of how to craft my emails (a big component of my marketing funnel).

But above everything else, all my fears for not being able to write a well-crafted sales letter disappeared and my confidence skyrocketed.

Thanks for putting together this great coaching!

“THANKS! I got a quick ROI on this and my bullet writing is transformed forever. Very happy student here. Apart from the excellent content, you structured it so I actually worked through and applied the content. It’s so easy to let books and programs gather dust – you made this really usable and I’ve benefited as a result.”

Write More Effective Copy, In Less Time

“Everything was great. Being able to do it on my own time was a plus. The videos were high quality and the workbook has information that I have used to get good results…The Simple Writing System gave me a blue print where I can focus my efforts on each step of the puzzle. Now I can write more effective copy in less time. It gives me the ability to write my own sales letters without using someone else’s work as a template for the whole thing”

Caleb O’DowdCaleb O’DowdFlorida

Pure Gold

“I’ve written pieces that have pulled in millions of dollars. Yet, when I sit down to write copy, I pull out my swipe file of John Carlton’s stuff, and study it like my life depended on it. He is one of the few true experts in advertising. Pure gold.”

Dean Hohn

Transformed My Website Copy

“As a newbie to copywriting, John and Mark taught me in the Simple Writing System how to target my thoughts and refine my writing in a way to tell a story that will hold a reader’s attention, which I didn’t do before. That has totally transformed my website script from what I had when I started to what it is now. I want to thank you John, all the team, for your guidance, help, and genuine support. You gave me the feeling that I really mattered as an individual and you personally wanted to help me in my copywriting journey.”

Thanks For Giving Me A Better Life

“Since 2005, your simple writing strategies have earned me and my clients millions. It all began when Eben Pagan shoved a copy of your course into my hands and said “Study every word and then write me some copy!” I was hooked, and got my hands on everything you produced.

My career as a copywriter has flourished since then, because you helped me understand the psychology behind a great sales message. In fact, just last month I booked a project that brought me a fat $15,000 (plus 5% of the gross sales in royalties)… and it took me just one week of work.

The beauty of writing sales copy is that it’s not the writing that brings in the money… it’s the knowledge of what to write about to get people to buy. And there is no one on earth who knows this — and can teach it so you “get it” quickly — better than John Carlton. Thanks, John, for giving me a better life.”

Stacey MorgensternStacey MorgensternHolisticMBA.com

“John promises a lot in the SWS. You get 200%. I don’t even know how to calculate the ROI on this one. I am only half way through the course and one specific tactic I’ve used this week has generated at least $2,000 in passive revenue – and that was the FIRST time I tried it!”

Tanner HarpTanner HarpSabre.com

Before I took the Simple Writing System, had a lot of scattered knowledge from reading books from the copywriting legends like Claude Hopkins, David Ogilvy, Eugene Schwartz, but I didn’t have a structured system to put it to use. Each fresh ad was a new trip down the rabbit hole.

After learning the Simple Writing System, it gave me a structured way to approach the work. The results were clear in my day job WAY before I started using the sales letter I developed. I became the most in-demand campaign manager in the business, got a significant raise, and the first direct mail campaign I applied the lessons to was heralded as the most successful marketing campaign of the year!

The coaching brought it together for me. They slapped some of my bad habits out of me (habits I swore by until then!) and built my strengths. I wouldn’t have seen it without the coaching — and I couldn’t created such effective campaigns without the system John teaches.

Jazmin Onyx

“John Carlton’s Simple Writing Course truly is an opportunity of a lifetime that will result in that one defining moment that you will look back on for the rest of your life resulting in the breakthrough you have always looked for but didn’t know how to find.

If you don’t take advantage of this course, you are missing out on one of the most powerful tools anyone can ever acquire – to be applied to almost any goal you wish to attain.

If you let it pass you by, then you will be kicking yourself in the ass for a really long time.

Every promise made exceeds expectations and the over delivery of value is worth many times the price of the course. John’s coaches are a “brain trust” unequalled anywhere else in the marketplace.

You will truly be learning from the Masters of the Craft. Learning Copywriting from John Carlton is like learning guitar from Eric Clapton. It is an honor and a privilege to be his student.”

Gary HalbertGary HalbertTheGaryHalbertLetter.com

“John is the first guy I call when I have a marketing problem.”

“His insights and marketing prowess are unparalleled among the working advertising experts I know… and I know them all. The money available, when you learn what insiders like John has to share, is just insane. In my book, there is John… and no one else is even close.”

Robert PierceRobert PiercePresident, Tactical Response Solutions, TRSDirect.com

John has created millions in profit for us. We pitted his ads and letters against big-city ad agencies, PR firms, and writers with lots of awards… and John slaughtered them all. He consistently hits ‘home runs’ for us — 20-to-1 return in profit is not unusual. He has saved our butts on several occasions.

30% more business in the last few months!

“What I learned in the Simple Writing System will help me build multiple streams of profits for years to come. I now feel I can truly make more money, create products that sell and attract more clients for my growing business. In fact, I can write my own ads which have brought in 30% more business locally in the last few months. I am so grateful for it. Thank you from my heart.”

3 Times ROI With New Skills

I just sold my most expensive screen ever. And, it was due to HOW I sold it with copy skills. Why am I so sure: – it was to a new customer – in a country where people are known for their fondness of bargain hunting – I am sure we had the most expensive offer (competitors offer a similar size screen at a third of the price) – it was the first time that such a screen was sold from a web inquiry. Wanna know how expensive the screen was? 25,000 euro (or about 35K in US$) without shipping or installation.

So thanks guys (David and John), I just made my investment in the Simple Writing System back 3 times on this order alone.”

Andrew RondeauAndrew RondeauWeBuildYourBlog.com

Best Investment I’ve Ever Made

“Best value course I have ever purchased… overall – great course, great value for money, expert feedback – I liked the structure. I have spent thousands of dollars on “internet related” products and in the past I have been personally mentored by not one but 2 ‘world famous’ Internet Marketers (who charge even more thousands of dollars)…and this SWS course beats everything…it is the BEST EVER investment I made. I tell you what really pisses me off – I have spent thousands of dollars being mentored by so-called ‘famous household’ Internet Marketers and not one of them has suggested what you have John, not one!”

Jiyaad NaeemEdison, NJ

“Within the 8 weeks of taking The Simple Writing System Coaching Program, I landed my first official writing gig – a $4,500 contract (and I was essentially an unemployed dude for 6 months)!

Before working with Leah, John & Stan, I thought I was a good writer, but wasn’t sure if I was putting all the pieces together.

After watching the videos and going through this process with Leah, I realized that I had a long way to go – and thanked God I had someone like Leah guiding me.

I had a lot of blind spots that I never would have realized without her talking me through them. Every single time she made a suggestion, I would say “Dang, that’s a lot better”. (I can’t think of a single exercise where something she recommended didn’t sound better or make me go to a new level of persuasion.)

I probably would have never learned the master level copywriting techniques she taught me if I was doing this alone – or it probably would have taken me years to learn them otherwise.

Thanks guys!

UPDATE: I just signed a contract for another business deal that will result in a $40,000 if everything works according to plan!!”
