About Raymond Duke
If you're into Direct Marketing, you're in the right place.
Marketing to me is connecting a powerful message to a person that needs to hear it.
When someone has a problem, they buy a product or service that helps them.
I believe marketing makes good things happen.
Unfortunately, not all marketing does this...
...there are people out there who market false hopes.
I'm totally against that!
The interesting thing?
The persuasion process is nearly identical between a fraud and a noble salesperson.
The one major difference?
A con does not intend for the relationship to continue.
(Unless of course it benefits him until a specific amount of time that's usually limited).
An honest marketer wants you to experience a legitimate product or service because they know it'll help you out.
My name is Raymond Duke, and it's my mission to help you out with honest marketing.
I really hate lying.
Lying is not only unethical, immoral, and bad for karma -- it's actually harder to lie than it is to tell the truth!
So the truth here is... it's easier to tell the truth.
Dishonesty is not only wrong, it's stressful.
Liars have to constantly think hard about what lies they told (and to whom they told them to).
So what's the purpose of this website?
*Gets on podium*
This website serves as a platform for me to tell the truth.
But it does more than that...
...I also use this website to share the works of other people who share my beliefs.
I often share my Internet explorations on my blog or on my email newsletter.
Speaking of which...
I have an email newsletter.
And I'd love it if you signed up.
My newsletter subscribers get:
- Private announcements about new posts (all my emails are communicated in a personal, non-spammy way, just like the copy you're reading now).
- Updates on new copywriting services (if you're into copywriting, I tend to send special invitations -- like webinars, product testing, and case study invitations -- to my list before I make them public).
- The ability to determine what I create (I send surveys out to my list and create products or services based on the demands of my list).
Easily sign up here.
Because I have to say it, I will not share your info with any third parties.
Your email remains private.
I respect the fact you want to keep in touch.
And that's the truth.
If you're tired of unethical marketing information...
...and you simply want to grow your business in a legitimate way
...then the information I send to you via email will be of use to you.
"Cool, I signed up. Now tell me more about you..."
My name is Raymond. I'm 32 years old Direct Response Copywriter and Internet Marketer.
From managing a deli in downtown Los Angeles, to loading and unloading ships as a Casual Longshoreman, I've worked over 30 jobs.
But it wasn't until I found my calling as a Copywriter, I found something profitable (and fun) that I could do for a living.
The turning point in my life happened when I re-discovered my passion for writing while attending California State University, Long Beach.
Because I had to write so many academic papers while getting my B.A. in Interpersonal and Organizational Communication, I found solace in writing my own material on the side.
Unbeknownst to me at the time, this experience built the momentum that forces me to leap out of bed every day.
Now, as a copywriter, I get to help brands and business owners effectively communicate -- and profitably sell to -- their target market.
And best of all, I get to do it with the freedom of working virtually.
All I need is my laptop and WiFi connection to run a 6-figure a year (and growing) freelance business, completely on my own terms.
On this website, I let you know exactly how I position myself and my services in such a way that I have zero competitors and a waiting list of clients.
If you haven't signed up to my email list yet, I encourage you to look around.
Check out my posts...

All of these things will give you an idea of who I am and what I'm into.
And if you're into the same things, I'm sure you and I will get along.
Looking forward to seeing your name in my "new subscribers" list soon.
All the best!
