Summary

Write well to sell big!

In the age of email and instant communication, great sales copy is indispensable to closing a deal. But too many sales letters end up in the junk file or the wastebasket. In this new edition of his top-selling work, author Dan Kennedy explains why some sales letters work and most don't. And he shows how to write copy that any business can use.

Among other things, he provides:

  • Completely updated text and examples
  • Great headline formulas
  • New exercises to spark creativity
  • The best way to use graphics

Kennedy is the most successful, highly paid direct-response copywriter in the country. In this audiobook, he shares his step-by-step formula so everyone can write letters that will nail the sale. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Book doesn’t age well

The book was probably great before the Internet took of. It contains many dated references and sales method that don’t keep up to date with today’s world.

Some good advice, but trying to sell during

Great advice, but the author tries to sell other books, courses, resources and business partners throughout. Feels like I've just bought an advertorial/ebook.

The Ultimate Sales Letter reviewed by Tevin Gongo

Really good introduction to copywriting. As a marketer, I know that I can stand out even more if I can add this particular skill. I like the practical approach Dan Kennedy takes with that book. I feel like I'm in a better position to produce more efficient sales copies. I vividly recommend this book.

Too outdated to be worth the time

I was expecting information I could use in email sales letters and sales funnels but this was soooo outdated they were talking about lumpy mail. I am a Dan Kennedy fan but this book needs a 5th edition to be anywhere relevant in today's marketing world.

a bit outdated

I'm sure the advice is still valuable and can be applied to online media, but overall this book would have been way more valuable 15 years ago.

Timeless!

Having the wonderful experience of working directly with Dan as a student and meeting with him personally in Hudson, Ohio over a decade ago. I can say he was one of the best. You liked him or you didn’t. But, one thing is for sure... you couldn’t refute his strategies. Superb audio book.

One of The roots of today’s marketing

Very well read and easy to understand.

While some of the information seems to be espoused by other newer sources, Dan seems like one of the well theses new guys are drawing from.

This listen helps establish a more complete foundation to build on.
