Hi. I'm John Carlton.

For many years now, I’ve been teaching people with absolutely zero advertising or marketing experience (not to mention a fear of trying to write anything) how to create their very first ad that actually works.

Sales pages... landing pages... video scripts... Facebook ads... blog posts that get people to opt-in to your list or buy your stuff... doesn't matter.

If you give me just the amount of time it (should) take you to drink a pint of beer… or beverage of your choice… you're going to be armed to the teeth with the know-how to quickly produce the best ad you've ever written.

An ad that will turn reluctant looky-loo’s into paying customers.

That’s because, writing a good ad isn't rocket science.

Like almost everything, if you take a bit of time to learn a few simple and proven secrets… everything else is just ridiculously easy.

Sign up below, and I'll teach you step-by-step, repeatable tactics that are in the Bag of Tricks of every world-class marketer and copywriter.

EXTRA BONUS: This training also shows you how to eliminate "writer's block".

Rookie marketers sometimes spend hours staring at a blank screen, without a clue how to even begin their ad.

Let me show you a few easy tactics that will scoot you right past your fear, uncertainty, and maybe even tiny panic attacks that set in every time you even think about creating an ad.

I've got a blueprint for beginning (and quickly finishing) an ad that could be that one thing that transforms your business and your life.

What Are Others Saying About John Carlton and This Simple Writing System?

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.

Tripled Sales In One Month

"Your course is fantastic. I have tripled my sales in a month and I am only now getting started fine-tuning and testing."

Markus KurodaJapan

"Studying John Carlton's writing, and adapting it to Japanese culture, has allowed me to dominate an entire Asian market. It's just unbelievable what you can do when you learn what's in John's amazing bag of tricks."

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!"

Victor ChengVictor ChengTaipei, Taiwan

When I started the SWS Coaching Program, I was a copywriting rookie.

At first look, the 18-steps program layout did not seem all that "simple."

However, once I got into it, I quickly understood why the program is structured the way it is. It made me focus on "one step at a time."

I trusted the system and followed my coach's guidance. Eight weeks later, I graduated with my new "killer" communication and persuasion skills.

Communication is always going to be the skill we use most often. The SWS program taught me the secrets of effective communication. I'll use that every day in business and life.

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!

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!"

Amanda FoxcroftAmanda FoxcroftAmandaFoxcroft.com

Simple Writing System, and John Carlton's ferocious coaching, has been the best copywriting education investment I've ever made.

Before, I knew of the parts of the sales letter, but didn't know how to make each element sing with persuasion. Now, I know how to dig deeper into the minds of my prospects, how to use empathy, and how to assemble and write a great sales letter.

I'm grateful for the Simple Writing System and John's coaching because I wouldn't have known how to fully execute all these principles on my own. I now have a reliable system I can use again and again to consistently turn out amazing copy. Thank you!

"You showed me how to take my marketing campaign over-the-top. Because of you I had to increase my fees three times. My income has tripled, and your techniques allowed me to develop a waiting list of clients that is 6 months long. When I saw some of the so-called industry greats sitting in your seminar, following you around like a Big Buck during breeding season, I knew I needed to suck as much info out of you as I could. What you teach is worth 1,000 times what you charge."

Karen AlisonKaren Alison

If you study online marketing at all, the name that comes up over and over again is John Carlton. Most of the top online marketers credit him as their teacher, or “borrow” (...steal...) from him. I’d been hearing about John and his work for years. I already had his KickAss Copywriting Secrets and followed his blog, so I knew how accomplished and influential he is. And the quality of advice he dishes out.

Was the SWS a life-changing experience? You better believe it!

Unlike some students in our SWS class, I was not an experienced marketer or sales copywriter. I had written three or four websites, but the two existing ones were not converting and I was at a loss as to how to make them generate income. I wrote good articles, judging by the comments and emails we received, and we had created a useful product, but we weren’t reaching enough prospects and we weren’t selling.

I'd even written a 28-page sales letter for our primary product that got a few sales, but the truth is, I didn’t know what I was doing. I also had the problem that a lot of people in the natural health field have – I didn’t want to push for the sale, because it might be perceived as too aggressive and "offend" my customer.

As I worked through the lessons of the SWS, with John’s probing guidance, all that changed. I learned about the different elements that have to be part of a sales message – long or short – and my writing style began to change. I began to choose words differently and work harder to find compelling language.

More importantly, my thinking changed. I began to think like a marketer who is communicating valuable information to persuade my prospect into buying, instead of an ignoramus blindly hoping to capture a few sales.

John has a saying. "If you have a good product, shame on you if you don’t do everything possible to get it to the people who need it."

That puts a whole different perspective on things, doesn’t it? The SWS makes it clear that it’s your responsibility to reach out to your prospect successfully, and shows you exactly how to do that.

The course is structured in bite-sized steps to lead you through the process of creating an effective sales message, so you have a chance to think through and work with each crucial aspect. At each step, John’s incisive "tough love" feedback showed me where I could improve, when I needed to work harder to really get the lesson, and when I was actually writing well!

I also learned enormously from reading the other students’ posts and the input they received from our coach. The synergy of working in the classroom structure was so powerful, I know it has moved me forward by a quantum leap. My brain is bursting now with new ideas for products and sales messages that I can feature on our sites.

What do I think is the best thing about the SWS?

Finally, I understand the process of creating a sales message, so I know what I'm doing instead of fumbling around in the dark, hoping to luck into a good result.

Nothing is better than being able to rely on real, tested sales concepts assembled by a pro from his many years of highly-successful copywriting. As John puts it, having this knowledge in my toolkit is going to put me ahead of 90% of the writers out there.

And it's an unfair advantage you won’t find anywhere else. I know... I’ve looked. I've taken courses with some of the most prominent internet marketers and there is nothing with the clarity, simplicity, and focus of the SWS out there. Nothing.

This level of instruction – making the copywriting process 'simple' for the student - can only be achieved by a master writer who has spent years honing his chops to the point where he can practically put a powerful, dollar-pulling sales message together in his sleep.

Don’t you want to be that person, too? I do!

Making Crime Pay

"Who says crime doesn't pay? John let me 'steal' one of his ad headlines for a seminar I was holding... netting me a cool $251,771 in just 3 days. I don't know any decent marketer who would be caught dead without John's help."

Pauk RakovichPauk RakovichClicksAndClients.com

"Probably the best marketing investment I've ever made. My Coach and the SWS have forever altered the way I market, both for myself and my clients. I am truly grateful for his guidance. Please do it again!!"

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.

Ken GlickmanKen GlickmanFormer Vice President of Marketing and Sales, Boardroom, Inc.

"Great copywriters are proven because consumers vote with their money. That's why guys like John Carlton are so expensive, and so valuable. This is seriously important information for your business. There are only a handful of writers in John's league. I read his book as soon as I got my hands on it."

I spent 8 weeks under John Carlton's torturous coaching in the SWS Coaching Program... and all I got from it was a quadrupled income. (And better sex, a perfect golf swing, the ability to use military combat strategies to steal rubber guns from unsuspecting assailants...) PLUS: Agora flying me to Baltimore in 2 weeks to talk about a writing job.

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.

Eric KurowskiEric 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.
