In February 2007, I had the opportunity to interview top direct response copywriter Richard Armstrong. I've just published it and made it available to my list.

By listening to this interview, you'll learn:
The best market to write for if you want to break into offline copywriting.
Discover how Richard Armstrong thinks. (He shares how he came up with a powerful hook for Smithsonian magazine.)
Who you need to contact to get a foot in the door with magazines. (Plus, where to find their contact info in about 60 seconds.)
Why you want to get a "control" right out of the gate. (It's not just for the potential royalty.)
And this is all within the first 15 minutes! Plus, you'll learn:
- How to get paid more... for doing less. (Richard Armstong says he only writes 8-10 packages a year!)
How to be a specialist and a generalist at the same time--and still take on projects outside your niche!
An untapped market for copywriters. (According to Richard, this market is desperate for a breakthrough!)

The interview is only 43 minutes long, but it's packed with great content. If you're on the list, you'll get the download link automatically. If you're not on the list, I encourage you to sign up now.
P.S. Richard Armstrong has written a great report (available for free) called "Make More Money By Writing Less!" You can download it here:
By the way, if you decide to buy Richard's fiction book, God Doesn't Shoot Craps, you'll also get 9 free bonus gifts.
I bought the book just to get the reports, which are excellent. The book is also quite good. You can download the report and consider buying God Doesn't Shoot Craps here:
