Each technically superb example in this collection of successful advertising was chosen
because it clearly illustrates an important advertising principle. To help guide you in the learning
process, each ad, direct mail piece or sales letter begins with an introductory note alerting you to
the technique(s) used within the piece.

Keep in mind, these ads were chosen for good reason — they are winners. They've earned
millions upon millions of dollars for the people that conceived and ran them. More than a few of
them are mine. But I also wanted you to be exposed to a broad range of other, equally profitable
styles and approaches.
Study these ads. Absorb the way they tell their story. Emulating their style is not just
educational — it could be one of the most lucrative studies you've ever undertaken.

I hope you'll profit from the study of these advertisements in two ways: first, I want to
inspire you to take these time-proven techniques and apply them to every ad you write.
But more importantly, I hope they'll open new windows of awareness and cause you to
examine the advertising and direct mail you see every day with a more discerning and informed
eye. This way, you will continue to advance and grow and profit even more from your study
every day — for the rest of your life!

Dear Friend,
As you can see, I have attached a penny to the top of this letter
for two reasons:
1. I have something very important to tell you and I
needed some way to catch your attention.
2. Since what I am writing about concerns money, I thought a
little "financial eyecatcher" was especially appropriate.
My name is Robert Allen. On March 13th, my staff hand-selected and
taught 189 people from all over the country my secrets to wealth.
Within 60 days, those people had profited an average of $12,916 per
person. 5
This same staff will be in Southern California January 5th thru 14th
and, if possible, they would like to meet with you on a personal
On those days, a brand new way to make some very serious money in
the 1989 real estate market will be revealed to a select group of
people, utilizing two almost unknown advantages "hidden" in the new
tax law.
With the changing economic climate that follows a presidential
election, right now is the best time to buy real estate. If you're
interested in high cash flow real estate, spending the day with
these specialists could be worth a virtual fortune to you. In fact,
we personally guarantee your success. Not only will you learn the
latest techniques of real estate investing from us...
"You Must Make $10,000 Or More In The Period
Of One Year Or We Will Refund Your Tuition!"
This intense training is not for everyone. It is only for those
people who are serious about having or controlling huge sums of
money. When you meet with us, you will receive FREE a special
collection of four reports containing information not included in
my two best-selling books: "Nothing Down" and "Creating Wealth".

www.abrahaminternetstrategies.com 6
Here are the titles of those reports:
1. A Hidden Twist In The New Tax Law That Once Again
Makes Real Estate The Number One Investment In America
2. An Amazing Secret That Lets You Talk To Owners Of
Bargain Properties Before Anyone Else
3. 12 Telephone Numbers That Can Double Your Income In
The Next 12 Months
4. A Simple 4-Paragraph Letter That Helps Yc. Flush Out
Motivated Sellers

These reports alone are worth the $59 cost of tuition. Yet they
reflect only a sampling of the money-making information that will be
shared with you.
I have enclosed a ticket to reserve your seat and FREE reports. All
you have to do is call and confirm your reservation. Pre-register
with your MasterCard or Visa when you call, and the cost of tuition
is only $39. Call and pre-register before January 4th, and you'll
receive FREE this additional bonus:
All The Forms You'll Ever Need To Profit
In The New 1989 Real Estate Market
We'll meet from 9 a.m. until 3:30 p.m.; the check-in desk will open
at 8 a.m. Location details are included on the enclosed ticket.
Please call now. Because of the extremely low tuition, we have an
idea this meeting will fill up fast. (We turned away 169 people
last time!) Call toll-free:
1-800-345-DO IT (3648), ext. 2B0
or 1-619-755-5501, ext. 280

Robert G. Allen

P.S. Please let us know even if you cannot come so the reports
reserved for you can be released to someone else. Thank you.

Bicentennial Papers
This promotion provides plenty of meat for the prospect to chew on while making his decision.
Note how the copywriter addresses the issues and questions that are probably foremost in the
reader's mind concerning the papers: rarity, condition, contents of a sample issue, significance of
offering, etc. This "greases the chute," removing objections and obstacles from the customer's
path of buying.

Method To My Madness
A great example of taking customers on a journey through the workings of your mind, clearly and
logically showing them why you can make such a seemingly overgenerous offer, and why it is
mutually beneficial for you both to follow the call to action.

Unique Selling Proposition

A great example of a Unique Selling Proposition; the coin dealer who will undo the wrongs of
other dealers at no charge. It exudes confidence as well as good will— a genuine concern for

Marginal Net Worth Theory
This bargain-basement offering of pricey newsletters made its money from the fact that a certain
percentage of readers re-subscribed at the regular rate after their cheap subscription ended. The
newsletters got the opportunity to prove just how valuable they could be to the reader. A
customer's value must be computed to figure out just how much you can spend to acquire him and
still turn a reasonable profit over the course of his business lifetime with you.

Post Purchase Possibilities
This post-purchase letter does a few things simultaneously; it builds good will with the free gift, it
offers another expensive kindred item for sale, and finally, it warms up the respondent to fill in a
marketing survey questionnaire, which will be of great use in effectively planning future

Better Than Risk Free
The valuable bonus offered at the bottom of the coupon could be the kicker that makes the deal
enticing enough for a customer to give it a try. That kicker, or bonus, can vastly increase the
profitability of the offering. The key is to get a bonus with high perceived value and low actual

reader to place an order.

building growing client relations.

Working the List

course, and gracefully segues into the compelling reasons for stepping-up to the advanced course.

Challenge Systems
Robert Allen does a lot of things right: The bold guarantee. The eye-catching penny that leads
naturally into the text of the letter. The $59 price that promises great value. Note also the
postscript which asks for action, even if the prospect is not interested in coming to
the seminar at the present time. Any mail order responsive name is a valuable asset, and
capturing those names is a lucrative endeavor. Finally, the plain simple envelope with a first-
class postage stamp will be opened more readily because it looks like personal mail.

The Perfect Diamond
This extremely well-crafted ad takes what in reality is a fairly common item and imbues it with
greater value by revealing little known facts about it. This is called "pre-emptive" advertising; facts
presented for the first time are thought to be unique to the merchant who first informs the prospect.
All or most fake diamonds may have the same specifications—but did you know these are created
at 5,000 degrees, etc.
