You know what I’m talking about, don’t you? All of these [types of solutions] promise you that you’ll [get some sort of amazing results]. By the time you finish reading the sales letter, you’re convinced there’s no way [this product] won’t work for you. It seems like a sure thing, doesn’t it?

I really mean it when I say [this type of product] works [to achieve the desired outcome]. It is true and I am able to prove it.

Case Study #2: [This Type of Person] [Enjoyed a Great Result] Even Though [They did or Didn’t Have Some Common Characteristic/Prerequisite, etc. For example, someone might lose a lot of weight even if they have a slow metabolism.] [Describe this second case study, including additional proof such as pics, videos, etc.] That’s pretty exciting, isn’t it?
