Shocking News: Gary Halbert Passed Away

س, فروردین ۲۱, ۱۳۸۶

Fun Corner, Internet Marketing

I just heard this sad news from John Reese in the Warrior forum:

Gary Halbert – the copywriting and direct marketing legend – has passed away. 

I was so shocked to here this news. Actually I first thought it was a marketing ploy to get people to open the message, but when I saw John Reese’s name as the author, I knew it was not like John to do such tricks.

Sad fact is, is wasn’t a trick. It was the truth.

My heart goes to Gary’s family and people who knew him as a friend.

I didn’t know Gary personally but have been lucky to read his online newsletter and listen to his brilliant interview that Michel Fortin did with him.

If you’d like to see a glimpse of how amazing Gary’s teachings were, you can listen to his free teleseminar interview and read his newsletter, The Gary Halbert Letter.

I will never forget all the great things I’ve learned from Gary about copywriting.

Thanky ou Gary, and may your soul rests in peace and joy!

    Indeed. I was shocked too. Gary was a g.r.e.a.t. professional and we all learned from him. My admiration for him is particularly due to the unbelievable diversity of his writings: besides copywriting of ads and sales copies, the “Boron Letters”, for example as well as his guide on sexuality, are genuine ‘pearls’.
    I’m thinking with sympathy to his charming partner and to his son. The only consolation they have is that he had a peaceful death, in his sleep.
    Farewell, Gary.

    Ivan,

    Yes, it’s been a big shock for the Internet marketing world as Gary was very well-known.

    Even my family who are not into this business at all knew him as I had told them about Gary’s interesting personality and pearls of copywriting.

    We will miss you, Gary.

    Though I know nothing about Gary until I went through your blog, I feel very sorry for losing such a brilliant, smooth flowing writer. I pray that his soul find its solace in Almighty.
    And Ladan, thanks for the archive and teleseminar audio

    Most times when you’re on your PC, doing work and stuffs, you tend to forget that time flies…

    When you hear news of someone’s death, that’s when you realize that our time on Earth is so precious… so limited.

    Gary Halbert lived a life where he would be remembered through his copyrighting, his skills, his teachings…

    We should mourn not the death of the man, but celebrate the life that had brought so much knowledge and creativity and humor to those who were blessed enough to know him…

    I agree Lyna. I’m not sad for Gary but I’m happy for him because he created a life so valuable that few people ever do.

    But I’m sad for us… for the marketing world for losing not only such a genius copywriter, but also such a wonderful person.

    Gary had a personality that if someone didn’t know him, would get offended when first meeting him because he was so outspoken.

    But when people got to know him more, they would really like and respect him because of his wonderful personality.

    I wish him all the best in his next life.
