Most recently, Roy penned the sales letter for the Titan’s of Direct Response, which garnered the attention of behemoth Gary Bencivenga. Gary was so impressed, here’s what he said about Roy’s copy:

Bond Halbert grew up at the feet of perhaps the greatest copywriter to ever lay ink to paper — the one, the only, Gary Halbert. As a result, Bond absorbed thousands of hours of “hands on” instruction on the delicate art of persuasion.
Here’s what a few of today’s top copywriters and direct marketers had to say about Bond Halbert:
“Bond is on my short list (very short list) of people I call when I have a marketing problem… or… for that matter, ANY problem.”
“Twice, for me, without my even asking, Bond has seen the strengths and weaknesses of my products, and come up with the perfect description that has generated maximum sales. I didn’t see the flaws myself until Bond pointed them out.”
Author of Breakthrough Copywriting
“…I never doubt their instincts in business, and I know first-hand that they sucked up every detail of marketing wisdom from their dad possible. They have the Halbert mojo…”
What’s more, Bond was a recent guest on another hellaciously fun and informative episode of The Marketing Maniac Show. To listen, click on the podcast above. And let Bond Halbert share the wisdom he acquired under the tutelage of his father, Gary Halbert.

Clayton Makepeace said, “Kim Krause Schwalm is one of the hottest copywriters alive. She has had many red-hot controls—both in the health and wealth fields—and her insights are money in the bank…”
