5 years ago I studied a course by Karon Thackston - her Step-by-Step SEO Copywriting Course. I even blogged about it back in September 2004. I celebratated 5 years of blogging full-time just last month, so that was definitely in my early days.
It was an incredible course, and a real eye-opener for me at the time because I was just getting into what would ultimately become my preferred style of affiliate marketing: ecommerce-style affiliate sites, selling physical products.
Fast-forward to today, and I'm excited to announce that Karon Thackston will be joining us as a special guest on my webinar this week! I am very much looking forward to the live hour with Karon - and to sharing her expertise with you...
Note: The room will fill up quick. We are limited to 100 live attendees. Make sure you are registered, and log in early to secure your seat.
Unlike so many info-publishers and online marketers who come at you with an in-your-face red headline and hefty price tag, and then disappear from the market forever... Karon Thackston has been consistent in the industry. In fact, she recently published the 5th edition of her course.
It was originally a virtual product, or instant download. I printed my copy and put it in a 3-ring binder, which I still have on my bookshelf - and still refer to. I don't mind to admit that it influenced much of my work since, including such pieces as How to Optimize An E-commerce Site.
This past week I received the shiny new 5th Edition of The Step-by-Step SEO Copywriting Course. Only this time it wasn't an instant download, but rather a very well done physical product. Here's a photo of my package when it arrived:
The Step-by-Step Copywriting Course is the big spiral-bound blue manual plus the 2 bonus CDs. The other guides you see in my package are: Writing With Keywords ($47) and How to Write Successful PPC Ads ($37) - each sold separately. You can see all of her products at www.CopywritingCourse.com (note: wait to order until you hear her special!)
This is NOT a course on writing sales letters. It is a course on writing copy for your websites, e-commerce (online store) and affiliate sites... to improve both search engine positioning AND conversion rates - at the same time.
SEO Copywriting is truly an art, and one that most people believe just comes more naturally to some than to others. But the truth is... those with the advantage probably read Karon's guide somewhere along the way.
Join me on Tuesday at Noon EST as we discuss SEO Copywriting live on the webinar, and take the opportunity to get to know Karon Thackston for yourself.
I've been a huge fan since reading her guides 5 years ago, and reading her advice through various SEO forums since. I look forward to introducing her to you!
p.s. Karon gave us a very generous coupon code to her website, which will give you 15% off your order on ANY of her guides. These are not info products, but physical spiral-bound guides & workbooks (see the photo of my own package above).
