Salesletter Copywriter


You need a direct response salesletter copywriter. I write sales copy. Let’s talk.

Unlike many salesletter copywriters, I not only write direct response sales copy, but I can also create and design all of the marketing materials you need for your business.

Heck, I can provide sales copy for your website, copy for social media ads, (and manage your ads), scripts for marketing videos (and professionally produce the videos), copy for your email series, design and write the copy for your marketing funnels and more…

Instead of hiring an entire team of writers, online marketers, web designers, SEO experts, video production companies, ad managers, etc. why not work with one person who can put everything together?

That would certainly save time and money.

His hands nearly shook as he wrote his goals down in the old, weathered notebook.

The cold was almost unbearable; the heat from the oven wasn’t providing much warmth.

As he sat on the kitchen floor, writing his goals for coming months down, he paused for a brief moment to take inventory of his surroundings.

His small one bedroom apartment sat still, nearly empty of furniture, but full of memories of unfulfilled dreams, goals, and desires.

Stacks of bills lined the corner of his small desk off the kitchen.

Rent was two months past due, and he was just weeks away from having his car repossessed for non-payment.

A recent bank statement showed a negative balance, followed by multiple insufficient funds fees.

Broke and jobless. But certainly not broken.

From the outside, it would have looked like the end. As if all hope was lost and the string of past failed attempts of getting out of the hole was keeping him tied down indefinitely.

But he had other plans.

He looked back down at his notebook and looked down at his goals for the next 30 days and let a small smile appear on his lips.

For some, especially given the situation, the goals were laughable. Simply a fantasy of a life so far away from the life currently being lived.

But he had no other choice. Finding another dead-end job was simply not an option.

This was his last stand.

He then stood up, walked over to his computer and went to work…

Armed with a borrowed $500 and a diet of noodles and peanut butter sandwiches, he started writing a magical letter.

Now this certainly wasn’t any ordinary letter. This was his first salesletter designed to go viral.

And it did.

He worked for 30 days straight; harder than he even thought was humanly possible.

And on day 31, he looked up to see that he not only met his goal he wrote in his old notebook, but he surpassed it.

The goal was to earn more income in one month than he had ever earned in a year prior. But most importantly, create a sustainable business that would get him out of the horrible situation he had found himself in.

Because of that one salesletter, the man’s life was forever changed.

Because of that one salesletter, the love of writing sales copy was born.

And because of that one salesletter and pre-launch marketing campaign…

I am here today.

Hi. I’m Robert Hawthorne (I go by Rob) and the above is my true story about how writing one salesletter completely changed my life in ways that continue to unfold many years later.

Oh, and by the way, that one salesletter I wrote in 2003 was responsible for over $1,000,000.00 in sales in a single day: The day we launched. And many millions in revenue followed for many years after.

You see, being a direct response salesletter copywriter was never something I set out to do. In fact, the thought never occurred to me.

However, salesletters and direct response copywriting fascinated me.

Years ago, before the Internet took off, I used to call all of the 1-800 numbers in all of the business opportunity magazines. If there was a glimmer of getting rich quick, I was on it.

I was a business opportunity providers dream. Almost every single day letters and packages would arrive in the mail

For years I read salesletters covering all topics from ‘get rich quick’ schemes, investment opportunities, the latest hot products, and countless business opportunities.

Little did I know that reading hundreds and hundreds of direct mail pieces growing up would somehow teach me copywriting… But it did.

Since writing my first salesletter in 2003, I have written copy for hundreds of websites, including this one (hint: you’re on it now).

And that includes writing just about every single piece of copy for nearly a year (websites, emails, launches, etc.) back around 2006 for Dr. Joe Vitale through Nitro Marketing. I also did some launches and copywriting for “The Godfather of Internet Marketing”, Mr. Mark Joyner.

We generated millions in sales. I had a blast creating unique and attention-getting launches that drove insane amounts of traffic to our sites.

But things have changed. A lot.

Attention spans have become severely shortened thanks to social media. We have 2-3 seconds to get someone’s attention. And many of the things that worked before don’t get the attention they once did.

However, there are many things that remain the same… Including using words (and marketing videos) to influence the buying decisions of a target market.

And that’s the salesletter copywriter game: To take someone by the hand and guide them through a hypnotic sales process. Some call it the customer journey. Other’s call them marketing funnels. Ultimately, it’s getting prospects from A to B to C through marketing.

The way we position offers and the copywriting and marketing tactics may have shifted (and shift constantly and quickly now-a-days), but the game has remained the same: Get someone’s attention and have them take the actions you want them to take.

Whether you sell products on Amazon and you’re looking for an Amazon product description copywriter, have a coaching or consulting business, sell physical products, digital products, or you offer services on your own or through a independent sales rep organization, nothing is going to happen until you convince someone to buy (or buy into) what you’re offering.

Ultimately, everything comes down to solving problems.

And my job as a copywriter is to dive deep into your products or services and also get into the heads of everyone in your target market…

… To speak to them in ways that position your product or service as the exact solution that they have been searching for.

… To position your product or service better than your competitors.

… To “borrow” proven psychological tactics that are proven to directly influence decision-making processes and get people to take desired actions. (It’s important to note that I only use these tactics ethically and honestly.)

So if you’re serious about increasing your website conversions and skyrocketing your business, you need a heavy-hitting copywriter to sell the hell out of whatever you’re selling.

Just don’t forget about marketing funnels and a website designer to go with your copy.

Settling for second best or trying to figure it all out on your own is not only a waste of time, but it’s both losing you and costing you an incredible amount of money.

The long-term ROI from hiring a great salesletter copywriter can be astronomical for your business.

So, now you know the story behind how I became a copywriter, let’s talk about you.

I’d like to get to know you and your project. Are you looking to hire salesletter copywriter? Before you hire anyone else…


Yes. I’m the one who wrote “the famous” salesletter several years back.

You see, it wasn’t just any salesletter. It quickly became one of the most studied and copied (by hand, that’s how many new copywriters start learning how to write copy) salesletters on the Internet for awhile.

I never told anyone I wrote it or the crazy story behind how that all went down. (I’ll write a blog post and share the story someday.)

However, I decided to share this for the first time here simply because I’m stuck in the vortex of having to do a little self-promotion while somehow remaining behind the scenes. It can be a tricky balance sometimes.

Here’s an image of the ugly old school salesletter

The Salesletter Copywriter For The Lost Art of Pelmanism is finally revealed..

For years many copywriting teachers used this letter to teach their students.
Here’s one example…

The Art of Pelmanism Salesletter was used as an example by copywriting teachers.
Others who were learning how to write copy for their own products used the techniques with great success. One person from the Warrior Forum wrote…

“So what I did was write out by hand the Pelmanism sales letter by Joe Vitale. It is regarded as one of the highest converting sales letters ever. Then I applied it to my Youtube product… and that Youtube product converted very well and made me a lot of money while building a buyers list that made me even more money.”

Since the salesletter copywriter for this product years ago, I’ve written well over 100 others and easily 1,000+ emails for various marketing campaigns. Not to brag, at all, but I know how to write words (written or scripts for videos) that make people buy or take action.

How would you like more sales or more actions taken by your target audience that will generate your business more revenue?

The Real Cost Of Hiring A Professional Direct Response Copywriter...

I’m going to be straight up and honest with you.

It’s not the actual short-term cost of hiring a copywriter you need to be concerned about.

It’s how much it’s costing you by not having a professional copywriter write the copy to sell your products or services.

Sure… You may think that I’m trying to work some of my voodoo psychological mind-altering decision-shifting copy magic on you here.

But the reality is that I reeled you in a long time ago by using one simple tactic that I learned about in a dusty old book from the 1930’s I bought on eBay many years ago. More on that another time…

Think about it this way…

Let’s say that you bought a 1964 Ford Mustang. It definitely needed some work, but it had a V8 with correct date codes and casting numbers. Sweet.

Most viewed the car as too much work. You viewed it as an opportunity.

You toss down $20K for the car and hire Billy Bob, a Mustang restoration expert, to bring this baby back to life for $30K. After all, the last thing you want to do is spend all your weekends working on a car.

You have $50K invested in the car, but once Billy Bob is finished, your head-turning show-stopping ride is now easily worth for $70K. You just saved yourself months of work and pocketed a cool $20K when you sold it.

Best of all, you did none of the heavy-lifting.

You see, it’s not so much the upfront cost of a copywriter today…

It’s how much you’ll be earning once you have a professional salesletter (or website) written that is cranking out sales for you left and right.

So the REAL question is, how much is a salesletter worth that is converting extremely well for your business over the next 12 months? 24 months? 5 years?

To give you an idea, I wrote a salesletter for a copywriting and launch consulting client back in 2009…

The copy on the site hasn’t changed one bit, just the design of the site to keep it current.

The salesletter continues to bring in cash today. From then to now, it’s generated millions of dollars between the sales of the product and additional products and services customers have purchased.

What do you think the ROI is for that salesletter? (Especially since my royalties agreement has expired…) 🙁

It’s ridiculously huge.

Look. Let’s make this very simple for the both of us.

You need a copywriter. I’m a copywriter.

You want more sales. I can bring you more sales.

It’s really that simple.

Heck, I can even put together a full pre-launch to launch your new products or even your company.

Go ahead, click on the button below and tell me about your project.

I’ll get back to you with any questions and we can take it from there.

And yes, I am happy to provide you with a list of websites and products I’ve written copy for (including Fortune 50 companies).

Sound fair enough?
