Drumming up Business"
|A direct response copywriter for close
to 15 years, Michel Fortin has an uncanny knack for writing clearly, persuasively
and vibrantly. In fact, his track record speaks for itself.
In the last few years, he was instrumental in selling millions of dollars worth of
products and services for a wide variety of clients stretching close to 200 different
But Michel's highly sought-after selling and writing skills did not appear overnight. In
fact, they stemmed from a personal, burning desire that became the springboard for his
success. "That's why copywriting or even selling," says Fortin, "is not
something you were born with... It's a learned skill."
From Humble Beginnings
speaks from personal experience. Born with a minor physical disability, he was abused by
an alcoholic father who simply could not accept that he "failed." To him, Michel
was a "failure."
As a result, he lived a secluded childhood in an
attempt to avoid his father (and the rest of the world) as much as he could, and fought an
overwhelming fear of rejection. (Even to this day, as his father is now institutionalized
with an alcoholism-related mental illness called Korsakov's Disease.)
One Day, A Quote Inspired Him
The quote was from Thoreau, which said, "Do what you
fear and the death of that fear is certain." So, he plunged into sales in
order to fight his fears head-on. But working on strict commissions, his lack of sales
forced him to file for bankruptcy at the still young age of 21.
Fueled by his unique ability to write persuasively, and after many years of trial and
error, Michel finally discovered the key. By using compelling copywriting and lead
generation techniques, he began to attract qualified clients.
|The result? Michel became the top sales producer
for a Fortune 500 insurance company. In the last decade alone, he generated over $35
million in sales for numerous employers and clients all over the globe.
