This 35 Year Old Headline Still Rakes In Millions of Dollars Every Year

When it comes to copywriting, and branding, I love when I find a rock solid control piece that still pulls in millions of dollars, year after year, for a company. There's just something inspiring about seeing a time tested, battle hardened, piece of copy that's proven itself to not only be recogniza...

Re: Urgent Help: Verb tense usage copywriting

My honest take is that as long you can write in a clear, and engaging, manner then a few grammar mistakes won't chase anyone away. :) Absolutely agree. Of course if we're selling products to school teachers (or writing to impress our language professors) then proper grammar is critically important....

Re: Urgent Help: Verb tense usage copywriting

Without seeing the context of the ad (what type of copy or pre-selling funnel is being used, leading up to the Carousel) and without knowing anything about the business or the client, it's hard for me to give any detailed advice.

I don't sell products through Amazon, but I do email marketing, and this article caught my attention... Aparently, up until now, if you sold products through Amazon you could only email customers who "followed" your brand on the platform. But thanks to seller feedback, Amazon will soon ope...

Franklin made some good points. A low open rate could be caused by lots of things. If you usually get high open rates, and suddenly they dropped off, it might only be a temporary downturn (there's a lot of political and economic turmoil going on in the world right now and many people are distracted ...
