Tip #19 of 21: "Write Original Ads"
by Jimmy D. Brown of List Profit Systems
Let me ask you a quick question: Do I know your list members?
Seriously. Do I know them? Do I know what they want? Do I know

know them better than anyone.
So, what you do is take that standard pre-written ad from Mr.
Affiliate Program and you TWEAK it. You take the important aspects
of it and you add in your own personal flair, your own style, your
