    Hi Anthony the Ad writing sounds great so you saying the subject line and the key word search must match up. Then you just add in your URL link right. I would like to set up some Ad campaigns that would be most effective.

  2. Marcia Brown says:

    I always love the mini lessons you do on the Success Connection. They are great tips for the everyday routines I do. I needed this reminder especially, because it sounds like I probably get too longwinded in my ads. Thanks for the tip!

    I’d like to see more on Solo ad writing so then when I do decide to spend the money and go through something lik DOE and send to more expensive targeted ezines I have the best possible ad written and in place.

  85. Barry Galison says:

    pretty straight forward regarding writing an ad

  86. Joany Clinard says:

    Hi there. I purchased your books when I was living in Orange County, CA. I moved to Mesa, AZ a year and a half ago. I just located the books and they are at my sister in laws house. I don’t have a car so I can’t get over there until mid next week. I just clicked on one of your emails and watched the vidio, and enjoyed the sensable way to write an ad. What do you suggest I do to get started with this marketing job until I get my books this week?

  87. Cathy says:


    That was the best 5 minutes I’ve spent all day!

  88. Annette says:

    Thanks Anthony. This is helpful.
