    Due to hijacking another thread I decided to create my own thread.

    This thread is for every one who is interested on taking Gary Halbert 30 day challenge to be a world class copywriter. The intention is to follow gary halberts way to the letter without deviation, and, to keep each other motivated. If you are in on this holla out in the thread to let me know you are here. Just say, "I'm in" :)

    Feel free check in periodically to ask questions, participate, motivate and, make others accountable including myself.

    If you dont know already, we are starting from Gary's premise that anyone can be a good copywriter in 30 days.Read Link Below:
    http://www.thegaryhalbertletter.com/Newsletters/zfkj_hands_on_experience.htm

    Here are the newsletter back issues and boron letters that you will need that is spoken of in above link.
    http://www.trafficplusconversion.com/1345/gary-halbert-letter/

    Here are the ads that gary halbert mentions that you will need from first link.
    http://theryanmcgrath.com/2010/04/gary-halberts-favorite-ads/

    NOTE: When you buy TESTED ADVERTISING METHODS by John Caples buy the 4th edition or earlier.
    NOTE: When you buy 7 Steps To Freedom by Ben Suarez buy the 1st edition (if you can find it)
    NOTE: When you buy The Robert Collier Letter Book by Robert Collier DO NOT buy KINDLE VERSION(its crap). You can buy the authentic 1937 version of the book from the heirs of Robert Collier: http://www.robertcollierpublications.com/page/by-robert-collier#letters
    Disclaimer: I haven't purchased from their site I cant give you any purchase feedback.

    Anyway, Lets try to do this as if he was over our shoulder. In case you dont know who Gary Halbert was, he was universally recognized as a legend in the world of copywriting. Gary died in 2007 RIP.

    P.S. Do you mind if I call us "The Unofficial Disciples Of The Gary Halbert Way" , (TUDOG< for short :) )? Lets keep the torch lit!!!

    UPDATE: A late addition: I am not sure if it should be a part of this challenge so I am going to leave it OPTIONAL at your discretion. Here is Boron Letters 2.0 written by Gary's son. I dont have all the details, but, you are free to take a look at the link below.

    Damn this is dope. Mad respect to you for setting this up. I wish somebody held my hand along the way like this when I was trying to figure this stuff out.

    I doubt you guys will need me for this, but holler if you need any help.

    Is anyone reading in chronological order just like it was written in the letter? I am starting with the first book scientific advertising and then on down the list. Maybe a bit too militant for some, but, thats how I am doing it :)

    Lets go. *Pushes chips forward.* All in.

    And lets also understand the deep reason why we're doing this. @IceCreamKid said in this thread http://www.thefastlaneforum.com/community/threads/z*********-changed-how-i-view-the-world.49457/

    EDIT: TUDOG sounds dope as f***

    I'm in. I think it'd be fun to learn a little more about copywriting.

    I don't know how much I'll get through in 30 days with two toddlers in the house, but I'll definitely participate in the group and get through what I can.

    I'll start with Scientific Advertising. :)

    Ok this will be cool to start February 1st. if Im being honest I dont know if I can hack it as it does seem like a daunting task especially as I am trying to grow my business and put 10-12 hours a day there.

    But whats wrong in taking 90 days, if I can learn to be a good copywriter in 90 days Ill take that as well, either way Ill start on 2-1-14 and see what happens :)

    I'm in. Starting off with Cash Advertising.

    Never ever finished a 30day challenge. But it's good motivation that I can sneak in and watch other's progress. Thank oldfool.

    As I mentionned in the other thread, I am doing the challenge. But I haven't put a time constraint on myself and for me the challenge is actually to do everything Gary Halbert recommends. It takes me at least two weeks to read a book so I estimate it will take me about a year to complete. Good luck everyone!

    I'm in.

    I read Scientific Advertising after I saw your original post earlier today. Its short, but full of gems. I'm looking forward to gleaming some insight from the other books on Gary's list.

    https://www.dropbox.com/

    Its a program that lets you drag and drop pictures, documents, and practically any file to an online cloud. It's really simple to use. The free service includes 2gb of online storage. the concept is, access your files from any computer. Plus share a folder/files with multiple people.

    I'm in too. The accountability factor in a working group environment appeals to me. Thanks ! Surely we all need to be starting on the same book folks in order to have definitive results as members of the group ? Easier to compare notes and to help each other?

    Was anyone able to find the following books?

    -"Tested Advertising Methods" 4TH edition...I only found 5TH.

    -"7 steps to freedom" I only found the second one. Can't find the 1st edition.

    I wasn't, but to be honest, I didn't look super hard. Figured I'd read the others first.

    check abebooks and alibris maybe http://www.alibris.com/Tested-Advertising-Methods-4th-Edition-John-Caples/book/23806714

    Truth is you may not find the first one of 7 steps, so, you might have to get ii.

    p.s. cashvertising isnt on the halbert list. i'd advise to read my first link and come back to cashvertising when you mastered this. You guys doing your own program,lol.

    i mean i know what dropbox is but how is it relevant in this discussion. Do you have some pdfs to share is what you're getting at?
