FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Beware of This Malicious Scammer When You’re on LinkedIn

Whore…Pornographer…Scam Artist…

This “Jacqueline Rucker, stealth sales strategist, Grand Rapids, MI”–https://www.linkedin.com/in/jacqueline-rucker-8722aa153/ –sure fits one or all of these titles.

You see, my name is Dale L. Sims and “Stealth Sales Strategist” is my copyrighted title.  But this profile for “Jacqueline Rucker” steals the copy and content from my profile word-for-word.  https://www.linkedin.com/in/dale-l-sims-9b411018/

At first, I was outraged.  Some newbie freelancer trying to cash in on my education, experience, and branding.

Of course, a quick analysis of this site showed that it had nothing to do with offering professional copy and content writing services.

It does, however, have something to do with marketing.  But what?

LinkedIn has been zero help.

But several factors have led me to believe “Jacqueline Rucker” is a front for prostitution, pornography, or some marketing scam.

Here are those points:

  • The photo. Google shows it to be a pic of a model styling a “little black dress.”
  • The timeline. This model looks like she’s in her mid-20s.  She certainly didn’t earn an associate’s degree in 1984 or a bachelor’s degree in 1991.  Also, her work experience doesn’t go back to 1986.
  • My website: It’s included in “her” profile. However, my About Me page includes a photo of me.
  • Plus, some other miscellany. No connections, no skill endorsements, and “she” can only be reached by LinkedIn’s premium InMail service.

So what kind of sleazy scam is going on?  At this time I can only speculate.

But if you ever try you work with “her,” I’d love to hear about it.

My guess though is that one of three things will have happened.

You got your ID stolen.  Your computer or other device got flooded with malware and other viruses.  Or, most likely, you got an STD.

__________

Tempted to swipe someone else’s copy or content.

Don’t do it.  With free plagiarism software like copyscape.com readily available, it’s too easy to detect.

And once you’re discovered, you’re reputation is shot, and so, most likely, are your savings.

Besides, there’s a safer, smarter way…

Just reach out to me at bwater17@att(dot)net or 616-956-1171.

And you’ll get the professional-level copy and content you want—without the career-killing hazards that come with plagiarism and copyright infringement.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Strategist Masters “Unfair Advantage” That Gets Prospects to Say “Yes”

Copywriter’s New Training Ups Clients’ Power to Make More Sales & Money

Grand Rapids, Mich., Nov. 5, 2015—Imagine possessing the mastery…

…to persuade people to perform an action—and have them convinced it was their idea all along.

Developing that ability is a vital part of Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP).

And it’s one of the many skills learned by Dale L. Sims, stealth sales strategist, before he finished the NLP Practitioner course from the American University of NLP (AUNLP) Nov. 1.

The course, taught by Dr. Steven G. Jones, M.Ed., is part of 14 certification programs offered by the Las Vegas, Nevada-based AUNLP.

In brief, NLP teaches people how to use their brains to promote positive changes and advance their communication skills.  It also motivates them to reach for and achieve higher goals, which creates better opportunities.

Finishing the practitioner level means Sims has learned to help others transform their belief system to accomplish those targets.

And he wants to use his new knowledge to help clients get more sales and revenue.  “Applying NLP to advertising promotions gives business owners and marketers an overwhelming advantage over their competition,” Sims said.

This sophisticated form of persuasion, the strategist added, can help them get more “yes” responses to their advertising messages.

This course built on the training the copy and content writer received earlier in the year.  Sims completed Clive Cable’s specialized Influence Intelligence Persuasion the NLP Way course in April 2015.

Discriminating business owners or marketers who want to harness this superior form of persuasion to get sales leads can reach Sims at bwater17@att(dot)net, 616-956-1171, or through the form on this website.

New Special Report Unlocks the Secrets to Easily Creating Successful Unique Selling Propositions

Self-Help Copywriter Reveals 9 Methods of Discovering Product USPs Guaranteed to Help Marketers Boost  Sales

Grand Rapids, Mich.—March 9, 2013—The jobs of marketers in the self-help, fitness, and health and wellness fields just got easier.

Fueling these improved working conditions is a new special report titled Finding Your Self-Help Product’s Unique Selling Proposition: 9 Coveted Copywriting Secrets That’ll Catapult Your Products Above the Competition.

This 24-page report details simple insider techniques that overcome a common challenge these professionals often face, said author and copywriter Dale L. Sims, www.selfhelmarketcopywriting.com.

“Every time I wrote copy for a new product I’d have to pull a few books and double-check online resources to ensure I had all my USP bases covered,” he noted.

“I figured marketers and other copywriters in my industry probably faced the same problem,” Sims continued.  “And since this subject is almost always covered generically in larger, general marketing texts, I wrote this to make it easier for them–and me.”

He also created it as a lead generation tool for his copywriting business, he added.

Priced at $14.95, the report, which includes a checklist, is available free to marketing directors and representatives.

Marketers interested in discovering how to distance their products from the pack–and boost sales–can contact Sims at bwater17@att(dot)com or 616-956-1171.
