I wanna know what you think.
Thanks in advance!
Cheers for now.
The wording of the headline is a bit confusing. What are you essentially trying to say?
And I would eliminate the use of "like" in your ad copy. It makes it sound adolescent.
Don't get me wrong. I'm not knocking you, but you asked for an honest critique, so I am giving it to you straight, and in the spirit of helping you out.
You the man Wiz! Yea, its just a rough draft, there are a few things I'm
gonna change. As always thank you very much for your imput!
I agree with Wiz, the grammar could use some work and the text seems a bit juvenile.
To be completely honest, I feel like I'm reading a 12 year old's sales pitch to a 10 year old.
A few things I noticed:
"Its just... you have no idea where to start." (It's)
"Like really,you might be on a few mailing list already, but you have yet to make any money online." (Eliminate Like really and it should be mailing list(s) plural)
"Its like basically like having these guys as your best friends," (come on dude, "like basically like")
You can do a little better...
Decent start and idea, but have someone go over it and rewrite it. It needs a lot of work.
"Its like basically like having these..."
"Tell you exactly how they went from a struggling newbie, to GURU Status. And make a LOT of money in the process."
should be something like this:
They'll tell you exactly how they went for a struggling newbie to a GURU, AND made a ton of money in the process.
Here is a quick rewrite:
"Who Else Wants To Jump On The Fast Track To Success And
Join Forces With Some Of The Internet's Top Money Makers!"
I'll bet most of you have heard people talk about how to make money on the internet. You may have even done a bit of research and discovered that there are a multitude of different ways to make money online. And like many others, there is a good chance that you are confused as to exactly where to start.
Maybe you are already on a few mailing lists but have yet to make any money online. Or possibly you have made a small amount of cash, but want to REALLY STEP UP YOUR GAME.

Awesome feedback & revisions Wiz!
Very much appreciated
i do never buy things from that kind of website, however i think it looks good and it needs tweakings here and there
You r the gem Wiz Giz...I am not that old on BHW but have been reading ur threads all around...and it helps me alot.
should be 'showing YOU how to make a great living on the internet!'
I would also change the theme to something else. I don't have anything in mind but there are much better themes out there. Find one. Preferably with bolder colors.
Make the header bigger with a different font face. More splash I guess. Something that grabs the reader's attention.
Also, add some testimonials. Nothing over the top, but just 'Great information in your newsletter. I am glad I signed up for it. Thanks!'
Also, what do you want them to do? Obviously, sign up for the newsletter but you should tell them 'to sign-up now to reserve your spot'. Put some urgency in it.
I am not trying to tear the site down or anything, just some things I thought would make me sign up. Keep up the good work though. I hope I helped you in some way.
Edit: One other thing I would include if you can is the word 'FREE' and receive your first newsletter immediately after signing up.
Thanks for the feedback
