“If we haven’t made it work profitably, then we have no business sharing it with others…”


No man is an Island… And so is true about the perceptual positioning team. Perceptual Positioning is a team effort. Everyone below plays a key role in some aspect of the projects we have the honor of working on. All the team members have their own 6 – 7 figure businesses as well as  talents and strengths that combined together make for powerhouse of expertise, knowledge and support..    

In order to be on this team everyone must have created businesses from scratch and made them profitable..   The team works on the Moto… If we haven’t done it, then we have no business sharing it with others…  The goal in building this team was to have a wide range of expertise, from brick & mortar to online experience.

Why? Simple we want to have access from multiple perspectives, several different angles to  support our projects in the most flexible way possible. We all believe the only right way to build  a Perceptual Position is to have multiple – eyes from different positions and experiences viewing it thereby giving the project the value and respect it deserves…

Scott Paton
Position:
Copywriting & Mobile Media Marketing – Advisory Board Member & Copywriter

 

What pushes your customers’ Hot Buttons? Makes them want  to get their hands on your book, product or service as fast as they can? Most business owners have absolutely no idea.

And any ideas they do have are usually wrong, or only half formed.
Success in any endeavour is partly Art, partly Science. Applied in the correct proportions, you create Magic backed with the power of Scientific Innovation.

Scott Paton and his copywriters have studied the art and science of writing for decades, pulled apart top ads from the 1920’s to today. They have worked with the top copywriters on the past 10 years.

And now? Are considered some of today’s best, most successful copywriters.
And they do it by making the perceptual positioning projects professional ,non-salesy unlike most overbearing and hype filled sales copy  …

Now let’s get to some specifics 

A British Optometrist in Bristol sold 3 pairs of spectacles via his website in 2 years of trying. After a month of reworking his site and add some copy magic, he sold over 50,000 British Pounds his first month (that’s about $81,000!). Within a year he had opened up two new warehouses and averaged 70,000 British Pounds a month.

A software programmer approached us to write a sales letter for his newest program. His previous (self-written) copy sold $5000 its first week. He was a little shocked and awed when our sales letter brought in $136,396 in 3 days.
Here’s what he wrote me recently:

“I have just read the draft of the latest copy you sent me. I thought long and hard before I wrote this email – I would really prefer to lock you down, have you write copy for no-one but me, and never have your name uttered, except behind locked doors.
“With every piece of copy that you do for me, I think “WOW, that’s superb – Scott’s best work yet”
“AND, then the next one turns up –  and it’s even better still!! In my honest opinion, you are one of the best copywriters around today, and I feel very privileged to have you working with me on my projects.

We live in a world that doesn’t stand still. Yesterday’s success is today’s failure. Constant improvement is the norm now and we live by it.It used to be: the job was writing 50 page sales letters. Today that might be the job… Or it could be writing a video sales script. Or Facebook Ads. Or an email marketing campaign. Or a sizzling Press Release.
It is no longer: One Size Fits All.
