Awesome Book for a Biz Owner

I really liked this book. It was very interesting. Although I had learnt it's concepts prior to listening, it reinforced the ideas and the reasoning behind everything. Importantly, it showed how important a sales letter is. whether it be online or offline.

Too outdated to be worth the time

I was expecting information I could use in email sales letters and sales funnels but this was soooo outdated they were talking about lumpy mail.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a bit outdated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.

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.
