Gary Halbert – Berry Trim Ad Breakdown
Ever feel like you wish you could crawl inside Gary Halbert‘s head and hear what he is thinking when he writes the ads which broke all sales records?
As you know from the Boron Letters, our father started training Kevin and I to think like him at a very early age but what you may not know, is he discussed all of his work with us relentlessly.
Throughout our entire lives Gary constantly talked about marketing and little else.
Even when we discussed things like politics we did it from a marketing view. As teens, we were forced to drive him around in his own car so he could focus even more on his passion, copywriting.
If Paul Harvy wasn’t on the radio, there was usually a lot of the conversation about killer offers, copywriting, hooks and the big idea. This of course, continued at dinner and while walking around etc.
Now, we fully understood the value of the education we were getting but, we did not understand…. just how rare the explanation of all the little ity bity details of the copy really was until…..
We took the time to explain every line in his hottest ads and sales letters.
We put out two so far and just finished our third and each time we try to add something extra special.
In fact, our latest breakdown holds the most value so far because…..
We cover all the basics of AIDA and everything you would find in any decent ad breakdown…….. We also explained aspects nobody else knew about and take you behind the scenes but……….. for this latest edition………. we did something truly remarkable…..
We made a point of using the different copy elements in this super successful promotion as a way to give you detailed step-by-step Gary Halbert copwyriting instructions. But…
The hot new technique in using these ad breakdowns to start thinking and writing like Sir Gary of Halbert wasn’t actually discovered by Kevin or me.
Here Is The Breakthrough I Only Wish We Discovered
After seeing how many people who watched the first breakdown were ordering every other breakdown we come out with, we realized we were on to something, but it was one of those buyers who deserves the credit for this brilliant idea.
If you study Gary Halbert material, you may know he recommends students hand write out his winning ads or sales letters and as strange as it seems, every one of his students who went on to be a great copywriter, did this exercise.
Of course, writing out winning ads didn’t mean you were guaranteed to become a top copywriter but, if you skipped the exercise, it almost certainly meant you would never become one of the best.
The explanation of why this process trains your brain to understand what it is like to write great copy is very lengthy so, without getting into all of that, let me say we accidentally found a way to put this technique for learning to write money generating ads on steroids.
Back to our genius buyer.
He explained to us that he was already in the process of writing out winning Gary Halbert ads but now he listens to the breakdowns as he writes out the Gary Halbert classic because it allows him to train his brain to think like history’s best copywriter and it works!
It’s simple and pure genius but there is an even better reason to look into our latest ad breakdown of our father’s record-breaking promotion.
Even if you already have the other two breakdowns, you will want to add this to your collection because in this particular promotion our father used a powerful technique he never used in any other ad…
In this ad you can see how our father wrote from the perspective of four different people and how they are layered to build massive trust.
Now before you think a diet ad is not in your wheelhouse, all you need to know is we thoroughly explain how you can translate these rarely used tactics into profit for you or your clients and to prove what you will learn….
We asked a professional copywriter to review the material and describe the content so here is what someone who makes a living writing copy says you will find inside.

John Carlton – “The most respected and ripped-off copywriter on Earth”
… I never doubt their instincts in business, and I know first-hand that they sucked up every detail of marketing wisdom from their dad possible. They have the Halbert mojo.
They possess an insider’s knowledge of how Gary worked that is unparalleled by any of the many writers and marketers who hovered around the edges of ‘Circus Halbert’. (That’s the name I came up with after my second year of seeing the wonderful chaos and unpredictable fun that Gary could produce in business.)
These guys are a bubbling resource of insight and knowledge about the ‘behind the scenes’ thought, research and action that went into every Halbert ad. They watched Gary go through the routines of writing, participated in the back-and-forth arguments he looped through when perfecting his ideas, and lived the creative process with him, day after day, year after year.
Listen to what these two share carefully. There is no better insider resource.
I still can’t believe these two punks grew up into men. Where does the time go?”
James Schramko – Professional Marketer
“I made many notes whilst listening to this powerful insight into the amazing genius Halbert mind. I recommend this to any business owner seeking marketing excellence”
“A revealing, insightful, eye-opening look into how Gary Halbert worked his magic.”
Scott L. Haines- Professional Copywriter & Author
Shortcut Copywriting Secrets™
“As someone who has been editor of a highly-acclaimed ad breakdown
service for copywriters and marketers… and… dissected and critiqued
scores of ads over the years, I must say I am thoroughly impressed with
what Bond and Kevin have put together here.
“Actually, I’m a bit envious. My ad breakdowns are considered good
(even great, according to some)… but… I’ve never seen anyone ,
anywhere go into this level of detail. Especially on something Gary wrote.
“I worked side by side with Gary for nearly a decade and had the privilege of
seeing, hearing and absorbing (literally by osmosis) his process and mindset…
and… it transformed my life from one of poverty and lack, to one where I can
get almost anything I want with the power of my pen.
“Unfortunately, no one can learn directly from Gary anymore… but… this
product is hands down the next best thing!”
Sammy Markowitz- Professional Copywriter
“I’m not sure I’ve ever seen anyone do ad breakdowns to such detail before. Your
insights can help any budding copywriter, very quickly, learn A LOT
from the sales pulling punch of highly successful ads. And this type
of instruction may perhaps be the best way to learn how to write
killer advertising. So I think this is awesome .”
Judy Kettenhofen (Professional Copywriter) – I’ll definitely be viewing this over and over again , whenever I need another hit of unadulterated high-octane copy juice.”
John Carter ( Owner Barparts.com)
Bond and Kevin break it down line by line and word for word.
You can look inside Gary Halbert and understand why each word was important and why he placed it where he did…
Don’t cheat yourself – watch these online videos!
They give you the big strokes themes and concepts together with sometimes many minutes discussing the impact and psychology behind a even a single word. It is common practice… to copy full sales letters by hand to get a feel for copy. What I do with the new Halbert brothers material goes a step beyond that, as I write the copy down WHILE I go along with their expert explanations so that I am not just guessing at why the copy was written as it was.
I have never seen such an in depth copy writing training product.
To me it is the next closest thing to Matrix type technology where you can get a direct download for how to write copy from master copywriters…
