Neil runs a company called FlackBox that sells very technical training. This is hardcore technical training for Cisco and NetApp enterprise software.
He only sells two training courses:
#1.) A $10 Cisco CCNA (routing a switching) course:
#2.) A $190 NetApp training course:
Well recently Neil’s company got acquired by larger company Digital Revolver, so he decided to do a quick flash sale of his two courses.
This acquisition happened very quickly, and Neil realized he had less than a week to sell his courses before he had to pull them off his website and transfer ownership.
So Neil decided to get some copywriting help from Kopywriting Kourse on how to structure this flash sale and write the emails. He bought the Kopywriting Kourse and 2 consulting sessions with Neville for this.
So with a little guidance from Kopywriting Kourse an email sequence with 4 emails (there were only 4 days left for Neil to sell his product) was created:
Just 4 simple emails created $27,802 in 4 days.
What’s interesting to note is Neil (and his company FlackBox) don’t have a “wacky” or “funny” writing style, but good copywriting principles carry over into any businesses regardless of their front-facing image.
So let’s give a round-of-applause to Neil for allowing us to publish this information (as most business owners rarely give out this much private information).
Below you can see the hand-crafted sales emails made with relatively plain language, yet good copywriting principles:

P.S. Ask your manager at work if they can pay for it or if you can put it on expenses. Seriously, it’s an insanely low price for this training. Your workplace is used to paying $5000 to send you on a training course and they have to cover your absence for a week. My courses include way more content than you’d get in a classroom, it doesn’t take you away from your desk for a week… and they cost way less. No brainer.

Subject Line: NetApp Course ACQUISITION Sale! – Huge Discount
In case you missed it yesterday, I’ve been acquired by Digital Revolver and all my courses will be moving over to their platform. So I have until Friday to run a final Acquisition 50% Off Sale on my ‘NetApp Storage Clustered Data ONTAP Complete’ course.
There’s over 22 hours of High Definition video tutorials, live lab demos and quizzes and it covers everything you need to know about NetApp ONTAP.
The course provides a structured approach which shortcuts your path to becoming a NetApp storage expert and taking your career to the next level. Whether you want to become a fully-fledged NetApp ninja and NCDA NetApp Certified Data Administrator (the de facto storage industry certification), or just brush up on the NetApp features as and when you need them, I’ve got you covered.
To get this level of training anywhere else you’d need to sit in a classroom and pay over $5000. That’s not an inflated figure, I deliver the classroom training myself so I know.
You can use the coupon code below to get the training for just $100 USD, until Friday only.

Now I know that $100 is still a lot of money, so that’s why I suggest speaking to your manager at work.

This investment in you is a no brainer for your company.

Subject Line: NetApp & CCNA course last ever sale – is it worth it?
Time’s ticking down before the doors close on the Acquisition Sale of the ‘NetApp Storage Data ONTAP Complete’ course. I thought I’d take the opportunity to answer one final question:
Is the course worth it?
Let’s break it down…
- The course contains over 22 hours of High Definition video tutorials, live lab demos and quizzes and covers everything you need to know about NetApp Clustered Data ONTAP.
- It’s the best online course available to learn about SAN and NAS storage and prove it to employers.
- I cover the complete configuration of the system in a logical manner, from taking it out of the box to the final tweaks to ensure best performance and availability, and covering off all the NetApp features as we go. You can watch the course from start to finish or pick and choose the topics you need to know.
- If a comparable course were available in the classroom it would cost you over $5000. And when it was over you couldn’t experience the tutorials again or ask the instructor any more questions.
- I’m offering the course for a final one-off sale price of $100 this week. Yours to access forever.
- This is your last chance to buy before the price is permanently raised to $500 next week.
That is INSANE value!
Get ‘NetApp Storage Data ONTAP Complete’ for just $100 USD.
You can also get my ‘Cisco CCNA 200-125 – The Complete Guide to Getting Certified‘ course for the crazy price of only $10, this week only.

- Develop a deep understanding of Cisco networking features and functions.
- Walk through complete and easy to understand explanations of each technology area covered in the exam.
- Follow simple step by step instructions to build your own fully featured lab on your laptop for free.
- Gain hands on configuration and troubleshooting experience through comprehensive lab exercises.
- Learn how networking really works through real world examples throughout the course.
- Build the skills and confidence to crush the CCNA 200-125 exam.
- Gain demonstrable knowledge and practical experience to supercharge your career.

Results from Kopywriting Kourse:
After Neil got some personal help from Kopywriting Kourse and some office hours sessions, he sent over these results:
So the moral of this story is that learning copywriting can be an enormously valuable skill to learn. It’s not as difficult as people think, and copywriting isn’t about “being funny” or “saying outrageous things.”
It’s about learning the psychology and steps that lead people to believe your product is a great value for them.
