Story
Tagline
Copywriter. Marketer. Consultant.
Introduction
Michel Fortin has an uncanny knack for writing persuasively. A direct response copywriter and consultant for close to 20 years, he knows how to use words to "grab readers by the eyeballs," boost response to record rates and transform floundering businesses into highly successful sales machines. His track record speaks for itself. In the last few years alone, he was instrumental in selling several hundreds of millions of dollars worth of products and services for a wide variety of clients, stretching hundreds of different and unrelated industries. One of his salesletters sold a $1.08 million online on the first day. A few weeks later, another salesletter for a completely different product generated over $1.04 million in three weeks. (That’s just the tip of a very large iceberg.) As an in-demand public speaker and consultant, Michel often talks at conferences, bootcamps and seminars around the world -- charging as much as $1,500 to $5,000 a seat to attend. Michel Fortin has shared the stage with the legendary Jay Abraham, T. Harv Ecker, Armand Morin, Mark Victor Hansen ("Chicken Soup for The Soul"), David Garfinkel, Joe Vitale ("The Secret"), John Assaraf ("The Secret"), John Carlton, the late Gary Halbert, Mark Joyner, Jay Conrad Levinson ("Guerilla Marketing"), and more. He has also appeared as a guest on several talk shows on TV and radio, including Small Business Heroes, the Mike Litman Show and many others. His articles have appeared in well over 500 publications and magazines, including Home Business Magazine, Wealth Building Magazine, Marketing Power!, Internet.com, Web Promote, Office.com, and many others -- as well as featured in thousands of websites, newsletters, and interviews. In 2006, Michel married Sylvie Charrier. Sylvie is the owner of Workaholics4Hire.com, Inc., one of the Internet’s most prolific outsourcing and project management firms. Together, they own a software and multimedia training company, The Licorice Group, LLC, creator of Success Chef, an online training system for marketing online.

Hourly billing makes little sense for tasks like fixing a car -- and far less sense for projects requiring creativity and a consultant's unique perspective.

Mobile accounts for more than 50% of all ecommerce traffic. Yet, mobile converts at only 1/3 the rate of desktop; that is, 3% on desktop vs. 1% on phones. Why don’t mobile shoppers buy?

George is probably one of the nicest, most cordial barbers I've ever had. Not only is he gifted, but he's also a kind human being since he did my wife's "shaveothon" at his salon for breast cancer, prior to her chemo treatments, where we raised over $15,000. Thanks to George and his wife, at Blackburn Barber Shop. Where you're not treated like a client, you're a friend and a member of the family.
