I have an established web site with a decent amount of traffic. I sell two books I have written and a brower based application I've created. My sales are OK, but not great. I need someone to write effective copy to encourage visitors to join my mailing list. The site is [obscured]
Any applications should be able to provide me with live examples ...

“If you're looking for well written copy, steer clear of greatcopythatsells. Not only was the copy littered with both grammar and spelling errors, but it didn't actually refer correctly to the product for sale. The freelancer clearly hadn't read any of the information I sent for him to read.
The copy came complete with graphics designed by the freelancer or one of his staff. They were of an exceptionally poor standard and would not have helped the copy, even if it had been written about the right subject.
When I raised an Elance dispute because of the quality of the work, the freelancer constantly brought up the subject of my current bankruptcy and claimed that he wouldn't have taken me on if he had known about it, not that my bankpuptcy had anything to do with the issue at hand.
My bankruptcy status was clearly discussed on the first page of the guide which he was supposed to have read before writing the copy for me. Clearly he hadn't read it.
I missed the conference call which is part of the Elance dispute process. My fault entirely and as a result the disputed funds have been released to the freelancer, so he now has my money. Don't give him any of yours. His copywriting, in my opinion, is extremely poor.
If you would like to read the actual copy the freelancer provided, complete with childish graphics, please contact me directly.”
