SNM011: Learn Copywriting to Make Money
Copywriting is a valuable and marketable skill. You can always find work if you know how to write copy and you can learn everything without spending a penny. Find classic ads and copy them by hand into a notebook…
These days you are just trying to get someone to click a button, but during the Golden Age of copy customers had to cut out an ad, fill in a form, write a check and mail the whole thing to an address they’d never hear of; that’s really hard!
Once you have the basics of copy language down, you can move on to the next phase.
Finding Copywriting Clients
Post ads where people can find you. Show that your services available at a low price point while you build your client base. Post ads on forums and model the best ones. See what works and just do something a little better. Repeat the same process for each project. Learn the structure that works in that market for that audience and then apply your persuasive language skills. Get up to 10k a month within a year. Courses are expensive and they really just teach templates; you can find their templates by finding their offers.
