If you're an entrepreneur or small biz owner struggling
to bring in the Big Bucks, please know this: Your lack
of success is NOT because you aren't hip to the latest
Google, Facebook, YouTube or phone App tricks...

... or because you're not following the "right" marketing guru...

... or because you're not spending enough time online
checking your stats and rankings.

Nope. The success you crave is being held up because of
something much more simple... and much easier to solve.

IF you're willing to listen.

So here is Big Question #1: Do you want to waste years
(and countless dollars) chasing after every new gimmick,
hoping for an edge?

Or are you finally ready to learn the first simple step to
unleashing the Killer Marketer hiding inside you?

Okay, then. Let's get started on changing your life forever...

From: John Carlton


The entrepreneurs and small biz owners who are dominating their niches right now (both online and offline)…

… know there is NO magic voodoo to bringing in the Big Bucks.

Here’s the formula:  You find a hungry audience, and you offer them something they value… by communicating with them in a way that resonates deeply and moves them to action.

It’s really that simple.

  • The hungry audiences aren’t hiding.
  • Elbowing your way into the jet-stream of a market is no secret anymore. (The “art” of building a list is now so well-known, it’s being given away for free during launches.)
  • And once you understand the needs of your target audience, creating or finding a valuable product is flat-out easy.

So why isn’t every marketer rich?

Here’s why:  Where most marketers get stuck (and we’re talking about everyone from raw rookie to grizzled veteran)…

… is in the “communicating your sales message” part.

And this is why my notoriously-simple system for writing everything you need…

… is still being devoured and implemented by marketers in every corner of the business world.

(Note how the “wall of testimonials” on this page covers staggering numbers of rookies… and established biz owners… and almost every battle-tested Guru alive.)

If there is a “magic bullet” for creating a business that thrives and grows like crazy (no matter what the economy does)…

… it is simply knowing how to communicate with folks who should be buying what you offer…

… and helping them understand that you’re the one they should be buying from. And they should be buying from you NOW.

  • Fads don’t sell.  They may generate interest, but fads cannot close the sale. (The ash-heap of history is crammed with popular marketers who went belly-up despite fame and attention from fads like the latest in social media or Google ranking formulas.)
  • Gimmicks and gadgets don’t sell.  Just posting videos because some “guru” convinced you that prospects “like” videos… won’t close the sale. (When was the last time you saw a YouTube video that made you laugh… and you then sent a dollar to the person who created it?)(You didn’t send anyone any money, of course. Because putting up videos without communicating a sales message will not persuade a prospect to take action.)
  • Even building a huge list swarming with prospects won’t generate cash for you…

  • …if you don’t have a clue how to hold a simple “sales conversation” that turns looky-loo’s into “gotta have it” customers.

The sad fact is… most marketers out there (both online and offline)…

…are flying BLIND trying to convert prospects
into buyers.

They literally throw stuff into the mix — websites, videos, emails, print ads, direct mail, SEO and PPC campaigns, seminars, whatever — and PRAY that it works.

Because they haven’t got a clue what really DOES work to clearly communicate a killer sales message to a prospect.

This gets personal, fast.

If you do not yet clearly understand how to sell what you offer to someone…

… you will forever struggle, and likely remain a permanent member in the horde of floundering, worried, bankrupt, and lost wanna-be business owners clogging the bottom rungs of the food chain out there.

Please allow this Reality Check
to sink in.

Unless you know how to make the sale every time… every techno-gadget or piece of software or “tactic of the moment” you use will be worthless in your hands.

People don’t line up like sheep with their wallets out because of something flashing on their screen.

They buy from you when you’ve earned their trust… and given them reasons to ACT.

So until you know how to make the sale,
you don’t need another gadget.

However… you DO need to allow the simple secrets of delivering a killer “sales conversation” to be introduced directly into your brain. (It’s painless and fun.)

It doesn’t take long to nail this skill (when you have just a little bit of help).

In fact, it’s truly simple to accomplish, especially with a hard-ass teacher guiding you.

And once you “get” it…

… THEN whatever vehicle you use to reach and persuade prospects — websites, videos, email, ads, seminars and everything else — will have the juice to start MULTIPLYING your results.

In ways that will take your breath away.

Once this fundamental revelation takes root… you’re ready for:

Question #2:
Can you really learn how to do this,
quickly and easily?

The simple answer: Hell, yes, you can.

Again, take a glance at the deluge of testimonials here… from folks just like you (as well as people in every other business situation and experience-level imaginable).

I’ve taken the most skeptical… stubborn… hard to teach… clueless… and scared students you’ve ever seen…

… and, through this step-by-step simple writing system…

… swept away any confusion about “writing” and “selling”… and transformed them into clued-in MONSTERS of persuasion finally able to bring home the Big Bucks.

Again, it’s not voodoo.

It’s a system. The same system I’ve used for over 25 years to create sales promotions that produced fortunes for the biggest publishers in the world…

… as well as countless entrepreneurs who came to me desperate for help after their “good enough” marketing proved to be “good for nothing.”

What I’m offering here is a proven formula, broken down into 17 simple, logical steps that ensure you get the right message out to the right audience…

…every time you sit down to create a sales message.

Whether you need to write a 20-page sales letter… or just send a short email to your list…

… having this simple checklist plugged into your brain makes the task faster, easier and TONS more profitable than just “winging it.”

The system I teach is a 17-point checklist to run through every time you need to create a sales message (through a video script, email, website copy, ad, etc).

Often, you don’t need to run through the entire checklist. (In fact, most of our biggest “Success Stories” come from students who had sudden “a-HA!” epiphanies — where everything fell together — almost immediately after digging into the process.)

This is easy. And you can do it at home, at your own pace.

Easy, easy, easy, easy…

Question #3:
Are you humble enough to learn from the same person who helped Rich Schefren, Frank Kern, Perry Marshall,  Harlan Kilstein and scores of the most successful marketers alive?

Just be straight on this: Every single tactic, tool and specific technique in the Simple Writing System… is something anyone can learn.

This proven teaching method makes all the difference. You absorb the skills…

By Actually Doing Them.

And it doesn’t matter if you’re a raw rookie with zero savvy… or an experienced marketer who has finally realized it’s time to get confident writing the important stuff.

This “actually DO it” method is exactly what former students consistently report WORKED for them: Having a clear, simple system that lays it all out…

… supported by easy (yet critical) action steps that cement each step into your brain.

Come with me… and I’ll show you how obvious and systematic it can be (for the rest of your career) to write everything you need written in your business to make money.

  • Your websites will rock.
  • Your emails will pack brutal sales-generating energy.
  • Your print ads will bristle with sales-producing power.
  • Your videos will pop with action-inducing persuasion.

And everything else you need or want to do to reach prospects…

… including face-to-face pitches, banner ads, social media…

… and every other effort you take to persuade people to buy your stuff…

… will be fully locked-and-loaded with all the tactics, strategies and hidden “mojo” used by the most famously-wealthy marketers you know of.

In this program…

  • You get the inside scoop on the specifics that work…
  • You learn specific ways to make it work for YOU… and…

That’s where all these sizzling testimonials you see on this page came from. (And no, there is absolutely no guarantee that you will see the same kind of results. Every business situation is different. This isn’t biz op — it’s about learning to communicate your sales message to prospects.)

I’m not a magic man.

I just arrive with a systematic, simple, proven series of obvious steps to take…

… that — if you will only TAKE those steps — can suddenly and dramatically transform your ability to make “success-sized” money in business.

  • No matter what market you’re in.
  • No matter what your dreams are.
  • No matter HOW you define “success”.

And especially…

No Matter How Much You’ve Suffered From
Writer’s Block Or “Fear Of Writing” Before!

Some of the folks who’ve seen the biggest results from this program…

… include high school dropouts…

… ADHD-addled space cases…

… and every kind of “failure” you can imagine.

All that’s really required to start your own adventure in making money is to:

  • Stop making excuses…
  • Find a proven resource where you can quickly learn what you need to learn…
  • And make the decision to get started.

It’s not complicated.

Here are the details:

The foundation of the Simple Writing System is the same 17-point checklist I have used my entire career to write fortune-making sales messages, over and over again.

Packaged neatly in the most fascinating DVD home study course you’re ever going to lay your hands on.

I’ve been teaching for decades…Simple Writing System DVDs and it took me a long time to figure out the best way to force-feed good information and advice and tactics into your head.The simple “nail it down in your brain” exercises in this home study course are designed to make each step permanent. So you’re not dealing with theory. You can go read a book for theory. No. Instead, you are ACTIVELY LEARNING THE EXACT STEPS that have created fortunes for me and so many others.

The DVDs take you through the entire system. Step by step.

And because we recorded live workshop classes in these DVDs…

.. you get to see how other people — from all kinds of backgrounds, in all kinds of markets, with all kinds of excuses and fears and discomfort with writing — used these same exercises…

… to get initiated, quickly and easily, into the systematic application of the steps.

Your notes are already done for you, too.

Included in your home study package is a comprehensive workbook that contains all the notes you’d ever want to take from my slides in the workshop.Simple Writing System Workbook

  • That means this workbook (over 280 pages deep) is a fire-breathing SWIPE FILE of the best ads you’ll ever lay your hands on… to copy, to use for inspiration, to rip from and use as blueprints.

In short…

… this system is a concise, packed-solid “one stop resource” for helping you write everything you’ll ever need to write to make your business rock the bottom line.

But wait…

I will also include in this fatKick-Ass Copywriting Secrets of a Marketing Rebel package (which we’ll rush-ship to you, by the way), a fresh copy of the recently updated “Kick-Ass Copywriting Secrets of a Marketing Rebel” manual… the same original “how to” manual that still sits nearby, well-used and dog-eared, in the office of almost every top marketer you can name.

You’ll get the course manual, plus an audio CD of me talking you through the entire course (so you can listen in your car, or on headphones at home — many people find that listening helps them learn faster and retain more).

The SWS gave me a breakthrough in my advertising abilities. I don't lie awake at night wondering if my advertising message will work.

Even if the economy gets worse items will always be sold and traded. People who know how to speak directly to the heart will continue to flourish. Trading has been here for thousands of years.

Plus, unlike any object or money, your skill is with you and has no limits on what you can accomplish." -- Ken Walden, Nashville, Tennessee


6-Figure Profit... and It's Idiot-Proof!

"For me... Copywriting was my lacking skill.... I never knew how to write effective copy, and John you've done a GREAT job... the SWS blows away any "system" I've seen in a long time. It's pretty much idiot proof. To top it off, my motivation after this course has never been so high... Since starting it I've sold 2 new franchisees (which adds over 6 figures/year into my pocket. I'm starting to blast off writing follow up sequences....I've also finalized my entire franchise manual for all of my stores, and my web guy is starting to build a new website for my retail stores and will use your copywriting to make it smash the competition as well as build an avenue through the site to franchise even more...I can't thank you enough... this is a program geared for REAL business minded people..... it's the real deal.. not some fancy, full of fluff, way of repackaging old basic marketing.

Andrew Rondeau

Best Investment I've Ever Made

"Best value course I have ever purchased... overall - great course, great value for money, expert feedback - I liked the structure. I have spent thousands of dollars on "internet related" products and in the past I have been personally mentored by not one but 2 'world famous' Internet Marketers (who charge even more thousands of dollars)...and this SWS course beats everything...it is the BEST EVER investment I made. I tell you what really pisses me off - I have spent thousands of dollars being mentored by so-called 'famous household' Internet Marketers and not one of them has suggested what you/John have, not one!" Andrew Rondeau, WeBuildYourBlog.com


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." -- Craig Forte, ServiceForLife.com


Carlton Got Me FIRED

"I had a cush job at one of the world's largest ad agencies. Then I found John's materials, and discovered the how to SELL, not just win awards. The agency hated my new style and gave me the boot. Which was a good thing -- my first year on my own, I'm on pace to earn FOUR TIMES my yearly salary at the agency. Thanks, John." -- Matt Marshall, freelance copywriter


Kevin Hill

$340,000 in 7 Days

"I started working for internet marketer Russell Brunson as a full-time copywriter and had only written a handful of letters up until that point. He asked me to write a sales letter for our 12-Month Internet Millionaire launch -- my first major launch. I was a little nerved up and repeatedly referred to John's course for guidance while writing the letter. Thanks to implementing the quick-start copywriting secrets John revealed in his course, the letter ended up pulling in $340,000 in 7 days.

If you remotely care about becoming a better copywriter and marketer, you need to get your hands on John's materials before your competition does." -- Kevin Hill


100% Right With Just A Glance

"It's scary how exactly on target you were with your advice based on reading just a few pages of our sales letter. You were 100% right. We've now made over 1,000 sales, captured wonderful customer feedback (as you advised), and are establishing national distribution." -- Al Oelschlaeger, EncryptaGifts.com


Write More Effective Copy, In Less Time

"Everything was great. Being able to do it on my own time was a plus. The DVDs were high quality and the two course books had information that I have used and gotten good results…The Simple Writing System gave me a blue print where I can focus my efforts on each step of the puzzle. Now I can write more effective copy in less time. It gives me the ability to write my own sales letters without using someone else's work as a template for the whole thing" -- Antony Ruffin, Matthews, NC


"I Stalk Your Ads"

"Dear John: Your strategies have made me hundreds of thousands of dollars. I consider your copywriting to be so influential on my success, that I've literally stalked your ads and sales letters, purchased countless products and services to get on lists... solely so I could collect (and study) the sales letters that you write. This practice has been like a real-world 'Harvard Business School' education for me. And I know dozens of millionaire business people and successful "guru's" that quietly keep an eye on you, follow all that you do, and consider you a major influence on their success." -- Ben Cummings, Park Place Publishing, NY


Transformed My Website Copy

"As a newbie to copywriting, John and Mark taught me in the Simple Writing System how to target my thoughts and refine my writing in a way to tell a story that will hold a reader's attention, which I didn't do before. That has totally transformed my website script from what I had when I started to what it is now. I want to thank you John, all the team, for your guidance, help, and genuine support. You gave me the feeling that I really mattered as an individual and you personally wanted to help me in my copywriting journey." -- Dean Hohn

Topped Our Best Month Ever... In Just One Week With New Tactics

"In the last 3 months conversions on my website have gone through the roof.

My data base guy is foaming at the mouth to find out why my analytics data is sending such a huge spike in conversions and my bounce rate plummeting to the bottom of the Grand Canyon. I implemented changes to my site as I was progressing within the Simple Writing System Training Program and realized after week 3 that I had all my money back. I truly can't wait to see what happens to my bank account and my list at the end of the year!"" -- Tom Wilkerson, Phoenix, AZ

Earning a High Six-Figures Annually Online

"Before I discovered John Carlton I had NO IDEA how to write good copy... and I'll admit I was pretty skeptical about investing in his programs because it just didn't seem possible that I would be able to influence people with print like John does.

Well let me tell you that John's teachings have not only helped me increase conversions by over 511%, but John has been one of the backbones to me earning a high six-figures annually online.

Not only do I use John's strategies in my sales copies and videos, but his tactics have also helped me develop a cult-like following on my blog, making my blog the #1 blog AND website in the world in my niche where I'm able to get as many as 8039 visitors to my blog in one day all from free traffic sources... THAT is the power of the influential writing tactics John showed me how to do.

I love waking up and seeing all the money roll in my bank account... even while I'm off doing whatever the hell it is I want to do" -- Chris McCombs, ChrisMcCombs.net

6-Figure Profit, & It's Idiot-Proof

"For me... Copywriting was my lacking skill.... I never knew how to write effective copy, and John you've done a GREAT job... the SWS blows away any "system" I've seen in a long time It's pretty much idiot proof.

To top it off, my motivation after this course has never been so high... Since starting it I've sold 2 new franchisees (which adds over 6 figures/year into my pocket.

I'm starting to blast off writing follow up sequences....I've also finalized my entire franchise manual for all of my stores
, and my web guy is starting to build a new website for my retail stores and will use your copywriting to make it smash the competition as well as build an avenue through the site to franchise even more.

I can't thank you enough... this is a program geared for REAL business minded people..... it's the real deal.. not some fancy, full of fluff, way of repackaging old basic marketing. Thanks John!" -- Adam Cloet

3 Times ROI With New Skills

"I just sold my most expensive screen ever. And, it was due to HOW I sold it with copy skills. Why am I so sure: - it was to a new customer - in a country where people are known for their fondness of bargain hunting - I am sure we had the most expensive offer (competitors offer a similar size screen at a third of the price) - it was the first time that such a screen was sold from a web enquiry. Wanna know how expensive the screen was? 25,000 euro (or about 35K in US$) without shipping or installation.

So thanks guys (David and John), I just made my investment in the Simple Writing System back 3 times on this order alone." -- Otto Tromm


Million Dollar Confession

Early in my career, I had the good fortune to discover John Carlton -- and he deserves much of the credit for my success as a freelancer. I hereby confess that many of the ideas behind the million-dollar controls I've written can be directly traced to what I learned or stole from John." -- David Deutsch, world-class freelancer with controls for Boardroom, Phillips Publishing and other major league mailers... and a frequent Simple Writing System Instructor


Sean Quinn

"In Northern Ireland, bricks and mortar businesses are beginning to realize they need to evolve. So I'm writing their sales and marketing funnels, from opt-in video scripts, free reports, direct response letters, to posts and emails for nurturing campaigns.

Good copy and sales funnels are a whole new concept to almost all of them, which gives me an endless stream of prospects.

At last it's paying off.

The Simple Writing System Coaching (and persistence) has given me the advantage over other copywriters, but I keep cool, and stay modest.

What I've learned from you means I know how to can help clients in almost any industry. My thanks to you and John." -- Sean Quinn


Sue Kennedy


"Hi John and Stan..just wanted to drop a line to say a big thanks to all of you, you have all done a fantastic job with this program. I have bought many products over the last few years, but this has definitely got to be the BEST! The way it was outlined was great, I personally have got heaps out of it. My teacher Lorrie was outstanding and inspired me the whole way through the program. THANK YOU VERY MUCH." -- Sue Kennedy, Sydney, Australia


Craig Clemens

Thanks For Giving Me A Better Life

"Since 2005, your simple writing strategies have earned me and my clients millions. It all began when Eben Pagan shoved a copy of your course into my hands and said "Study every word and then write me some copy!" I was hooked, and got my hands on everything you produced.

My career as a copywriter has flourished since then, because you helped me understand the psychology behind a great sales message. In fact, just last month I booked a project that brought me a fat $15,000 (plus 5% of the gross sales in royalties)... and it took me just one week of work.

The beauty of writing sales copy is that it's not the writing that bring in the money... it's the knowledge of what to write about to get people to buy. And there is no one on earth who knows this -- and can teach it so you "get it" quickly -- than John Carlton. Thanks, John, for giving me a better life." -- Craig Clemens, New York, NY

Harlan Kilstein

Million-Dollar Advice

"John's first critique of my copy was a shock -- I thought I was pretty darned good, but he told me to rip it up and start over from scratch, using his specific advice.

I'm glad I had the sense to listen -- my first year, with John's advice stinging in my ears, I earned over $350,000. And this year, I'm bringing in a cool million." -- Dr. Harlan Kilstein, TheDogingtonPost.com

Disclosure: Harlan's arguably John Carlton's most tenacious and successful student. He's one of the Simple Writing System's top teacher.


The Simple Writing System is a miracle!

"I spent 2008 like a lost puppy. I couldn't figure out what to do with the rest of my life.

On a whim, I joined the SWS in October 2008. I fell in love with copywriting. I graduated and did my first few letters for my own real estate business.

Then I fearfully took my first freelance job. I did it for zero upfront since they knew I was a newbie. I assumed it would be a practice run I'd never get paid for. To make things worse, a friend who tried his hand at copywriting said there was little chance of making over a few thousand dollars per letter for many years.

I followed the SWS steps to the letter, double-checking every step. I didn't know if it was all true, but I did it in faith. The letter was up against a new letter from a seasoned pro. (They paid him $10,000 for it.) After I completed the letter, the business told me they were raising the price of the item from $79 to $149 before the mailing. Another speed bump to the letter's success.

Fast forward one year. The letter destroyed the seasoned writer's letter. It is mailing its fourth big batch. I have made $22,730 in commission from it so far, and the client is getting ready to mail a whole lot more.

In addition, a big WDC firm got ahold of it and hired me to do a letter for a very well-known national organization. I haven't even bothered to set up a website since I have more than enough high paying copy work now.

The Simple Writing System is a miracle! It provided me a two-month launch to a whole new career. And a whole new life." -- Paul Moore, Moneta, VA
