Massive Breakthrough Generates $70,000
"I had a massive breakthrough reading your stuff, John. Over the last 14 days, what you taught me generated an extra 20,979 in sales! Thanks again."

"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."Eric KurowskiCobra Kai Creative
"The course is great, but coaching is life changing."
I’ve spent $8,000 trying to be a better copywriter. A big chunk of change for me. I could have saved BIG $$$ and time taking this course first.
John’s methodical Simple Writing System process made the "why" behind writing much clearer. It was a brilliant journey into my prospect's head and into my market.
The writing and coaching expertise of my SWS Coach, Colin, is off the charts. (Rob a dang liquor store if you must find the cash, but get coaching!!). He was accessible, smart and funny.
Whenever I thought I had something down, sure as sh!t about what I wrote, he would guide me to make it even better.
I finally feel confident, locked and loaded, and ready to make the jump to writing persuasively for the rest of my life.John Reese
"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."

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!

"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."Caleb O’DowdFlorida
"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."Carolynn AnanianDirect Response Copywriter
If you have to pick just one resource for learning copy, The Simple Writing System is it.
I read all the copy books, yet I was still frozen by performance anxiety every time I sat down to write.
Now that I'm better at research and understanding my avatar, writing is so much easier and faster. The research lessons alone were worth the price, because they got me inside the prospect's brain in a way no other book or course was able to.
I appreciate how you guys broke down the entire writing process step by step.
Good writing isn't a fluke, it's a formula. (And I don't mean those B.S. formulas you see out there for how to write a sales page).
The SWS taught me the nuts and bolts of crafting a killer sales argument are deeper than just hooks and headlines. And good luck finding material out there that explains all of this in a way practical and down to earth like it's done in the SWS.
Definitely glad I chose the private coaching option, too. Colin gives the best insights, took the SWS lessons to another level, and gently redirected me when I missed something. At least 80% of the value I got from SWS came from the private coaching. My only regret is that I didn't find you years earlier.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.
UPDATE: I just signed a contract for another business deal that will result in a $40,000 if everything works according to plan!!"Harlan KilsteinTheDogingtonPost.com
"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."

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 :)Terry Dean
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."Lorrie MorganRedHotCopy.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."

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!Joe PolishPiranha Marketing, co-host of iLoveMarketing podcast
"Phenomenal content. Of all the marketing, advertising and copywriting experts I pay attention to, John Carlton is by far the most articulate and passionate and knowledgeable (and funny). I get more value just from your hilarious, ballsy stories alone than from the serious efforts of most other gurus. Man, you've helped my advertising get wicked-good."
