Some people know that one of my long time clients is the very well known direct response copywriter, Bob Bly. I met Bob early on in my career — he was already pretty famous — and he asked if I would be his “agent.”
I agreed and we’ve been working together ever since. He calls me his “secret weapon.” But the real secret weapon is him. If he didn’t have as much experience and know-how, I couldn’t have done much for him.
That’s why I’m surprised (and thrilled) that he finally agreed, after years of many people asking, to offer a live coaching program for a small group of copywriters who want to learn the secrets to a successful copywriting career. He agreed to do it if I would do it with him. That’s how our new coaching program was born…..and it starts on October 7, 2015.
You can read all about it here…but here are some highlights:

Expert instruction plus personalized attention
We’ve deliberately kept the group small so that everyone gets enough of both our attention. And we’ve kept the format flexible (all you need is a phone!) and free-flowing, combining discussion of all key topics with me and Bob — plus plenty of time for you to ask – and get answers to – your most pressing questions about freelance copywriting success.
Plus there are 5 bonuses worth $320+ immediately available when you sign up here.
I have a feeling it will fill up fast, especially with all the sharing — so email me (ilise at marketing dash mentor dot com) if you have questions.
