What If You Could Get Personal Guidance On The Private Marketing Communications Method That Has Set Records For Companies Like

IBM, Johnson & Johnson, Time Magazine, Barclays Global Investors, and Coldwell Banker, Made $Millions For Top Coaches and Consultants Like Russ Ruffino, Douglas James, and Kate Byars, and for Celebrity Experts Like CNBC TV host Jim Cramer . . .

Well, now you can, but first you need to know this:

Flint McGlaughlin, founder of the renowned marketing research firm MECLABS says, “the essence of marketing is the message.” True…

but when research shows that people are getting bombarded with 10,000 marketing messages a day and ignoring almost all of them –

How do you break through all that noise?

How do you make sure your message won’t be one of the 9,990 messages refused entry into the minds of your prospects?

Here’s the key that will get you in:

If the essence of marketing is the message, I would add, the essence of a message that sells is The Hook.

Once you know how to come up with and use all sorts of hooks: big idea hooks, opening hooks, story hooks, bullet hooks, offer hooks, and open loop hooks that will keep readers reading and viewers watching, you have the keys to breaking through.

That’s why I came up with the Hookology Method and apply it to all marketing communications. It’s the method I’ve refined over 35 years working on marketing projects for top companies, agencies, coaches and gurus.

It can be applied to every part of your funnel and campaign: ads, sales pages, upsells, webinars, email, landing pages, etc. And the results are amazing

Here's what 8 figure coach Russ Ruffino has to say:
Why haven’t you heard of this before?

Okay, I have to fess up here. I’ve kind of kept it to myself. It’s enabled me to stay at the top for so many years. While I’ve divulged some of it to coaching clients, I pretty much kept the whole system to myself while I was hotly competing for high paying clients.

So why open the kimono now?

Fact is, while I still do some copywriting and create campaigns for clients (in fact my recent social media ad campaigns have, as they say, been crushing – see testimonials), at this point in my life my biggest satisfaction is helping others.

Helping coaches, consultants and entrepreneurs grow their business by leaps and bounds. Helping independent consultants and freelancers go to the next level.

I’ve experienced the feeling of being a hero with my copy and campaigns but no longer crave the glory. And money is no longer an issue.

So coaching, consulting and teaching is my jam at this point. Which is ironic, since I started out teaching (see my bio) and have always enjoyed coaching and teaching.

So how can I help you? Well, through 1 to 1 guidance on your marketing communications. And the easiest way to get that is to book a Breakthrough Power Hour with me. (see below)

[Warning: there are very few time slots available in any month. Once they’re filled, It’s closed until the following month.

The Power Hour (aka 1 Hour CMO session)
We can cover anything you want. Think of me as your fractional Chief Marketing Officer for the hour. For instance, together we can:
You can shape your Power Hour according to what you need. (Look at the trainings below to get an idea on some of the topics I cover.).
Who is this for?
Fee for the Power Hour/1 Hour CMO session: $600
(Tip: consider this a “sneaky backdoor” – for now –  to get a critique for less. My critiques for sales funnels and sales webinars go for $1,000.)

Want more comprehensive training in specific marketing communications areas?
I got you! I created these 4 week Deep Dive programs, to go in more in-depth on particular marketing communications areas.
4 week Deep Dive BreakthroughPrograms
One to one personal programs with a particular focus.
How it works:

After you sign up for a 4 week program, you’ll get notified and receive the first training video. Plus a worksheet and other materials.

I will then create a private Google doc folder for us to share documents, scripts, videos, questions and answers, etc. (like you see here).

This will be our shared workspace. You can upload assignments, ask questions, and share videos.

I will go into the folder and do critiques, answer questions, upload weekly training videos, and give personalized advice in the form of comments or videos, etc.

In the folder, you’ll also find checklists, templates, and examples. You will continue to have access to me throughout the 4 week program through the shared Google folder. I will be notified whenever you post questions or upload a new doc.

The Google doc folder will be yours to keep after the program.

(Note: Want to have a 1 to 1 call or zoom session in addition to the  training? Just sign up for a  Power Hour/1 hour CMO session, see above, at any point.)

Here are the Deep Dive Breakthrough Programs

1. Breakthrough Hooks and Big Idea Training

(signature training – my Hookology Method)

Discover the different kinds of hooks, how to come up with them, and how to use them:

So how do you come up with these breakthrough hooks on your own? I’ll show you the specific process I developed over the years which has enabled me to create winning campaigns for over 35 years – including today.

The process I teach you in this training process will enable you to come up with the right hooks on demand. Once you know the process you can guide freelancers or AI tools to do much of the work for you.

You’ll also get access to my private vault of

-Evergreen big idea hooks

Plus my files of the top Angles – this is key to coming up with different hooks.

Added Bonus: How to leverage AI tools to come up with more breakthrough hooks and ideas faster and easier


The Hook is the most important part of all breakthrough marketing communications. But what about the rest of the webinar, sales page, ad, email, etc.?

In fact, that was another problem I faced for years. There was so much to do so I had to work fast! Out of necessity, I developed a complementary creation process to my Hookology Method.

And that is the Fast Assembly Block Process. You see, once you have the main hook, the rest is pretty modular. Think of it as text or script blocks to be assembled in the right order.

Once I figured out this process, boy did it make things faster. Yes, things are a bit different going from a facebook ad to a youtube video to a webinar etc. But the process of assembling these blocks is essentially the same.

Each of the  following 4 week programs shows you how to combine my hooks methodology with my Fast Assembly Block Process, and how to apply them to specific kinds of marketing communications.

The result? Higher engagement, trust, belief, and conversion – leading to more clients and customers: Take a look and see which one is right for you.

12. My Serial Specialist Strategy for acquiring client after client after client

(for consultants, marketing agencies, freelancers, service businesses, and coaches)

I’m spilling the secrets on how I’ve been able to get client after client ….for over 30 years. And how I’ve helped freelancers, consultants, agencies and service pros and many others easily break into new fields to increase their revenue and client base.

I designed this so you’re NOT trapped in a specialty (I wasn’t)…The technique I created means you don’t have to niche down your brand in order to niche down your marketing.

This strategy works so well because every business owner/potential client believes their business is special and requires insider expertise.

This is the exact client acquisition strategy that enabled me to be highly successful for over 30 years (as a consultant, copywriter, interim creative director and CMO, and a boutique agency – not all at the same time! lol)
