Want to spend 30 minutes on the phone talking about sales copy?
To celebrate the launch of my brand new copywriting course, Call to Action, I’ve decided to do something special. I’m giving away my 3 favorite copywriting books, plus a 30-minute copywriting call. You can ask me questions, get my advice — I’ll even write copy for you right there on the spot.
Strong copy has been the engine of IWT for years. It’s how we’ve grown a list of over 500,000 subscribers, 30,000+ paying customers, and millions in sales every year.

@ramit I just joined. I have learned SO much about copywriting as a member of your list alone. I can't wait for this. Thanks for sharing.

Unlike most contests where you just sign up, this time, we’re going to have a little fun. To win, you’ll need to flex your copywriting muscles and impress me with your powers of persuasion.
Here’s how to win:
If you want to win a free, 30-minute copy call with me, follow these three steps:
Step 1: Write something — even a half page — using compelling copy on why you joined the free Call to Action Copywriting Bootcamp. You’re coming, so you’re doing others a service by letting them know about it, too.
Step 2: Post your copy on the internet with a link to the bootcamp registration page (Link). This could be published on your blog, your forum, your Facebook page, YouTube…wherever. Someplace people can see it that allows them to join. Tag it #thecalltoaction (I’ll be posting my favorite ones on Twitter throughout the week).
Step 3: In the comments below, add the link to where your copy is. (Don’t forget this part! If I can’t see your copy, it can’t be in the running.)
I’ll select the winner with the best copy. I’ll analyze why I loved your copy, and I’ll FedEx you my 3 favorite copywriting books — plus I’ll call you to talk about copywriting for 30 minutes.
DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS: FRIDAY, 11/13, at 11:59pm PT
The winner of this contest will be announced Monday, November 16th, during the live copywriting master class I’m hosting. Since you signed up for the Call to Action Copywriting Bootcamp, you’re already registered.
Hints for winning:
- People are not persuaded by dates, facts, and figures. Tell them about personal meaning (why you believe in my copywriting material), results (what results you’ve gotten following IWT), use comparisons of good vs. bad copy. Study other people’s copy on the link below.
- Do not get hamstrung by technology — use Tumblr or Facebook if needed.
- The best copywriters also know how to spread the word. They know that “write it and they will come” is a myth, so they also use their copywriting skills to drive traffic to it. Think about people who need to learn more about copywriting — you’re doing them a service.
What to do now
Write something — even a half page is fine — using compelling copy that shows people why they should join the Call to Action Copywriting Bootcamp. Post your copy online, then paste it along with the URL in the comments below. Be sure to tune in to the copywriting master class on Monday, November 16 at 9PM Eastern (6PM Pacific) to see if you’ve won.
You’ll get more details on the copywriting master class soon.
P.S. Tag whatever you write #thecalltoaction. I’ll tweet some of my favorites to my 94,900 twitter followers.
