“Ed ‘Tubby Nerd’ Dale Starts His Totally FREE . . . Thirty Day Challenge”

Bloody Ed Dale is at it again and this time he’s more serious about your success than ever.

Yep, it’s time for his thirty day challenge – as part of the underachievers system. Ed is a mate of mine and I have loads of respect for him and what he does. I offered to help all of the members who take part in the thirty day challenge with FREE copywriting tips etc. and I really do think you would be insane not to register and take part in this years thirty day challenge which is going to cost you zero, zilch!

PS. This is the real deal!

It’s time – tomorrow pre-season begins and it’s like nothing you
have ever seen before.

This thirty day challenge is going to be VERY different

Very Web 2.0

(Real Web 2.0 – not the weak stuff I’ve seen around)

I start to explain how in this video

I created the thirty day challenge in 2005, after I sold my 38 web
sites for five million dollars (which was very cool for me).
Running a business on the Internet is simply the best business to
be in but unfortunately there was so much hype and false promises
from people teaching all sorts of dubious strategies which I knew
from experience (and making a lot of mistakes) did not work.

The other thing that really upset me was all these people
saying that they were making tens of thousands of dollars a
month online. Sure you can do it – but it takes a lot of work. It
was so sad…

People had there hopes raised high only to have
then dashed a month or so later when they had not made there “tens
of thousands of dollars” – what a waste of enthusiasm  – you see I
knew that if people made just a dollar online – that was the
crucial thing. That was something you could build on…

I was angry but what could I do about it….

Just after I sold my sites in May of 2005 I was in New York and I
found this intriguing book at the Barnes and Nobel on Union Square.
It was all about a group of people who every November sat down and
tried to write a novel in thirty days. How cool was that  (and
scary – the rules were that the novel had to be 50,000 words, that’s
1667 words a day for those calculator types!)!

Then it hit me….

What if I ran a totally free – zero hype – internet course teaching
people everything I know about Internet Marketing. The goal of the
thirty days – make a single damn dollar with their own product
(excuse my french!). I would get people into teams and we would
support each other through thirty days. It was crazy but it just
might work.

So in July of 2005, 927 hardy souls started out on the Thirty Day
Challenge, and at the end of thirty days – 27 people had made there
dollar (a further 112 made it in the 60 days after it). What a ride
it was and some of those thirty day challenge newbies have gone on
to be some of the best Internet marketers on the planet!

The challenge was even bigger in 2006, and now in 2007 we will have
our biggest and best challenge yet and of course it’s totally free
and their are no hidden catches.

In fact there are a few ground rules

* Totally Free – you don’t need a single dollar to participate

* No Pitching, No Selling – When we first started out – people
thought that there was some catch – they kept waiting to be sold
something – they never were.

*No computer experience necessary – seriously. Every part of the
thirty day challenge is video based so you can watch along and see
exactly how to do each step.

*Hype Free – This is all about a very clever process – it’s all
about the training – That’s what we want you to concentrate on.

In fact, I know a lot of people who use the thirty day challenge to
introduce spouses, friends and relatives to Internet Marketing.

Check out the video (Oh and could you do us a favor and rate it -
just click on the stars

( A note to experienced marketers – there are two reasons you may
want to join this years challenge. First up this years strategy is
totally different to anything that is being marketed out there and
two – why not mentor a team. As Steven Covey said – the best way to
learn something is to teach!)

PS Yes, I am using youtube very deliberately – see if you can pick
what I am doing differently to all the other youtube marketers out

“Can YOU Handle The Truth About Internet Marketing?”

This is going to upset some people – you might will not like what I have to say. The truth is I do care about your success and if that means offending you in the process, so be it. It’s nothing personal. This will be worth the read though because to put my money where my opinion is – I am prepared to give you for FREE . . . a turn-key business worth $4,997 – to prove it and you can sell the product for $997 and keep 100% of your profits. NEVER pay me one single penny in royalties!

And it’s not just an Internet Business!

So brace yourself, swallow your opinion, leave your ego at the door and just bloody well read this and absorb what I am about to tell you . . . as I really get something off my chest, something that’s been annoying me more than a festering boil on my left butt cheek.

Everyday some new found internet guru F.I.G.J.A.M. snake oil selling scumbag floods my inbox and who knows, probably yours – with their ‘magic pill’ which guarantees you will be making $10,000 in the time it takes you to take a pee. Yep, they have the screen shots for ‘proof’ and have testimonials from other guru’s who would who also go to the opening of an envelope as long as they could put their name on it. Credibility overload – NOT!

Yes, there are many genuine people who are making serious money, that have genuine proof and credible testimonials and I am not talking about them at all.

I have told you as well as my entire list that Internet marketing is just one tool in the entrepreneurial bucket of success and to use the tools on offer for you to maximize your results. One continuing problem is you are forever being told that you don’t have to get off your butt to make money and that’s a magic pill that’s designed for gullible people to swallow so easily you don’t even need water to wash it down.

Fair dinkum – that’s pure fantasy . . . utter B.S. and the F.I.G.J.A.M people know it. The problem is, with sizzling copy which starts off with a persuasive headline to hook you in . . . it can be hard to resist ripping your credit card out of your pocket and grabbing one for yourself. It’s amazing what can be done with brilliant copy.

Okay . . . I am awake now, drinking my 5th cup of coffee and I have started to relax enough to get off of my soap box.

What you may not know about me is this. Before I started doing internet marketing I was doing direct mail ( mail order) and off-line marketing selling a business marketing tool kit to business owners for $997 based on the what I have discovered from my mentors about the power of direct mail.

I didn’t always agreed with what I was reading or listening to . . . however I was said to myself – who the heck am I do to disagree. When I invested $25,000 in my buying resale rights to Dan Kennedy’s products I paid for it with my AMEX card – knowing I would have to pay that back when the next statement was due.

Recently, I had the good fortune of having the godfather of direct mail and copywriting, Ted Nicholas treat myself Peter Woodhead and the 12 attendees at the copywriting workshop in the UK. Now, for those 12 lucky people as well as for myself and Peter having a true legend on tap for close to 4 days was and always will be priceless. I received quite a few emails from people after the workshop who said they will be at the next one as they couldn’t get the the first one.

My reply was simple. You will never get to go to a second one like that because it was a one off. Ted Nicholas did the copywriting workshop UK as a one off special favor and they would have to wait until the DVD’s are available.

The thing about Ted is this, he is still doing direct mail and making mega millions in the process and there isn’t one internet marketing guru – regardless of who you can name who could even come close to lacing Ted’s boots. It’s Ted Nicholas first and daylight not even second.

The things Ted revealed about direct mail and just how powerful direct mail is, the much higher conversions to sales etc. made me chuckle as well as confirming what I already knew and had been trying to get you to understand . . .

“YOU can and will make more money with direct mail than online marketing!”

Yes, you read that right. Now if your copy sucks you won’t make too much money whether you do online or offline marketing.

Also, many of the top online marketing make their fortunes using offline, direct mail marketing strategies to drive traffiic to their websites. They just don’t divulge this to you because they do not want you to know about it.

How to Get YOUR Own Direct Mail Business Including A Website Valued at $4,997 for FREE

I want you to be one of the 6 people who will get full reprint rights to my Magic Words Sell Home Study Course which up until now has not been available other than a download version. The home study course has so much more value. The gold package sells for $697 and the Platinum package sells for $997. Production costs are approx. $50.

You will get to sell and keep all of the profits:

10 x 1 hour copywriting Blueprint CD Roms
5 x 1 hour CD’s from my Judgment Day Direct Mail Seminar
5 x 1 hour DVD’s from my Judgment day seminar

PLUS many other genuine bonuses.

I need to point out that Judgment day package alone sells for $997 without the 10 hours of my copywriting blueprint CD’s and most of the testimonials I have are a direct result of these products.

You will get:

The website sales copy
The FREE report for offline marketing as well as 3 step letter sequence
Lead Generation Adverts for offline advertising

Telephone script and other proven tools to ensure your success.

Generally, these types of reprint rights sell for 10 times the product selling price which means it should be $9,997.

YOUR Copywriting Navy Seal Mastermind Invitation:

I have a copywriting mastermind group which has been by invitation only. When I set this up – it was to be for a max. of 25 people only as there’s no way I can handle anymore people. I have 10 places left and then it’s closed off. I am now extending my invitation to you.
Yes, there is an investment. Below is a copy of what has been sent to the other mastermind members, including a very special offer in the PS.

Here’s What You’ll Get:

As you are aware . . . I have been planning to take you to the next level as far as becoming a copywriter goes. Being a copywriting protege of mine is one thing, becoming a copywriting navy seal is another.Just like a pro athlete continues to train and have coaches and mentors, you are no different – if you want to get really good that is.

I don’t care if you just want to crank out sizzling copy for yourself or if you want to get paid copy projects too.The cold hard truth is this.If you stop your learning, if you stop fine tuning your craft, you have completely wasted your time, effort and cash by attending in the first place. Remember – I am still learning and will NEVER stop!If you are thinking you know it all right now . . . that’s a dangerous assumption to be making.I have witnessed many people who are wrongly assume they are armed and dangerous – only to discover they didn’t have enough fire power to blow their own nose.

My Copywriting Mastermind group will not just make you good – it will make you great as long as you listen, learn, implement and take action.

Understand this.

YOU will be part of an insider’s group as these levels will not be open to just any Tom, Dick, Harry or Harriett and I will limit the number to a group that I know I can teach properly. No exceptions. No excuses.



Group Mentoring teleseminar either via skype. These will be 60 minutes (They normally last much longer) where we will discuss pressing copywriting and marketing techniques as well as brainstorming to help each other be as successful as possible for our own businesses.


One Private, One on One, 30 minute mentoring session with me, via skype valued $500 each. These can also be used to critique copy you have written.

Unlimited email support valued at $200 per month. Now, don’t think you can be lazy and send me some long winded email that requires too much of my time. This is designed to give you a quick answer to something you need clarified or to ensure you are on the right track. I am your mentor. I will not be doing it all for you.

NOTE: I do not see the need to hold live meeting 3 times per year for 2 days. To do this requires alot of expense for you and I as well as you needing to fly to the location and pay for hotels etc.With the Internet anything we need can be done via email, skype or talking on the phone.
Okay, so you are thinking this is gunna cost you an arm, a leg and your left kidney as well – just to belong.

You are right!
Just kidding. It’s just $299.97 per month. Go to:

This should be a no brainer so I am not doing an expiry dates etc. What I will say is this, I might change my mind if you procrastinate for more than 24 hours and put the price up to $399.97.I look forward to you becoming a copywriting Navy Seal.

PPPS.Here’s what Ted Nicholas Has to Say About Me:

“Recently I had the delightful experience of doing a seminar with Trevor Crook, an extremely capable copywriter and speaker. I particularly like how Trevor went way above and beyond in truly helping each and every attendee become a vastly better, more effective copywriter.

He truly cares about helping his students dramatically improve their copywriting skills. If you get a chance to go to his seminar don’t pass up the opportunity!”
