Happy New Year Everybody.

I got a Copywriting Puzzle. I could use some help with.

You can Help us help a friend.

And Get a FREE copy of our 20.00 Report, "100 Million Dollar Movies and How to Boost Your Copywriting Results with them." A Reward or Bribe for giving us Your Opinion.

A School teacher asked us to help her adapt and sell information from several books she wrote but has not sold yet - on Ebay.

Here's the PUZZLE:

We wrote the offer about an idea in one of Seraphina's books. How she and teachers she coaches use a trick she Thought up to Get ABSOLUTE QUIET in 5 to 10 seconds - from any size group. Any age. 5 people or 500+

We named her strategy the "NOISE THERMOMETER."

E-mailed the sales letter to her.

She posted it on Ebay as a 7 day auction. For some reason, hours passed and we couldn't find her auction. So Under my own SELLER ID - I put up a
"Buy it now" version of the exact same sales letter.

"Noise Thermometer Guide on How to Get People to SHUT UP"

But I made a Mistake.

Used A Totally Different and WRONG Picture at the top.

A Blonde Doll.

Here's the Puzzle and
Why We're Offering a
BRIBE for your OPINION. (Maybe you'll spot something we're too close to see)

Even though both auction offers are the SAME. The auction with the WRONG Photo. The Blonde Doll Color Photo. Has sold 3 books in a couple days.

The correct photo auction has not one single bid.


Auction Version #1 - No mistakes:
