    I charge $500 minimum for a sales page, and I will not use the long form sales letter format because they are too intimidating and look like scams. I'm sure you'll have many more competitive responses, but if you're willing to pay more for quality content that is engaging enough to keep readers interested then I can share some samples. PM me if interested

    1. The format should be your client's decision, not yours.
    2. Long copy is statistically proven (many, many times over) for ebooks and other CB products. Show me a study that says otherwise - expressing opinion as fact can mislead your clients and you should make an effort to be clear about what you say and how you say it.

    @OP - there are a large number of exceptional copywriters that specialize in your product type, and they can range from $200 to $25,000 for a single sales letter. Nearly all will have samples and references (that you should verify), but the most important factor should be how their work comes across to YOU. Does in evoke an emotional response in you? Does it flow logically and systematically? Does it make you want to buy?

    This isn't a decision that should be taken lightly, nor is it a need that can be filled with a simple WTB thread on single forum. Your product will flourish or fail based on the strength of your sales letter, so hiring a copywriter shouldn't be an afterthought, it should be the central focus of your pre-launch processes and testing. Your product can be aces but if you can't convey that to your visitors, it won't matter. :)

    Truth.

    Which is why I state what I will and will not do. I will not do anything that won't be successful.

    Here's some info about the long form sales letters:
    http://www.blogmarketingacademy.com/sales-letters-dead/
    http://visualwebsiteoptimizer.com/split-testing-blog/long-form-sales-letters/

    That's neither here nor there. It was presumptive of me to assume that you were asking for another page like this (http://elpassoblog.com/stripped_down_profits_sales_page/) but it does seem to be the first go to when somebody is looking for a sales page. I get it, affiliate marketing is tricky and there's a standard way of doing things. I was just stating that my way is different. My way works. But if you don't want different, that's okay too!

    Agreed. I didn't realize my reply would turn into a debate! I was simply saying "this is what I charge, but I won't do X, because..."

    Also when choose copy writer you must provide some additional information to him.

    1. Examples of other products in this niche;
    2. What type of traffic do you use to promotion? - PPC, E-mail marketing, forums, etc.
    3. Major benefits of your product;
    4. Testimonials - from real people, not fake;
    5. Your competitors;
    6. Source of proof - why your product work;

    Also some copy writer have price for creation of sales letter + % of your future sales. BTW, look in BST i remember one thread for sales copy writing services with good reviews and price under $ 500.
