Scott’s journey into copywriting began back in 2003 when at rock bottom and out of desperation, he ran a small classified ad in the Sydney Morning Herald.
Since then, he’s gone on to become the un-seen wordsmith behind hundreds of widely published and super-profitable email marketing campaigns including…
· An email product launch that generated $470,000.00 in revenue within 7 days…
· Creating over 9,127 email subject lines (and seeing the split-test results) for one of the leading health influencers on the planet.
· Strategy and copy which generated in excess of 3,000 attendees and $5 million in sales to an event.
· Combined with dozens of five and six-figure campaigns.
Over the last 17 years, he’s written for some of the biggest names on the planet including gurus like: Kerwin Ray, Scott Hallman, Jay Conrad Levinson of ‘Guerilla Marketing’ fame and Direct marketing giants in their day, Bodytrim and The Learning Annex…along with Aussie Franchises including ChemDry and Jim’s Mowing, and leaders in the digital marketing space such as Jon Giaan, Knowledge Source, Mark Rolton and Dymphna Boholt.
He runs what many regard as the highest level private marketing group in Australia: “Elite Marketers” and a sought after corporate speaker, including most recently at James Schramko’s Superfast Business Event, and for Dale Beaumont and Ben Simkin’s masterminds.
