this is a good reminder that the real purpose of marketing (with integrity anyway) is to serve people (and help yourself - but the purpose must stay on giving something of value).

Good points.

It's really about knowing what you are selling. Are you selling weight loss information, or you selling motivation, reminders, a "virtual coach," a regid path to follow.

Want to learn copywriting? Probably anyone could become a six-figure copywriter by just going to the library and getting every book ever written on the subject.

By getting on mailing list and doing long hand.

In fact, that's how I got started.

Who needs courses?

But, it keeps you on track. And I think that's one of the main selling points.

Like Dan Kennedy said in a recent newsletter, people want "babysitters" and "hand-holders."

If you're willing to do it, and know how to communicate it, then you got a business selling something Ryan could summarize in one blog entry.
