Want to start your own business? If you have writing skills, a copywriting business is a no-brainer. I started writing copy way back in the 1980s (eek! – the horror… I wish I were starting out today.)
Back then, life was much calmer, and that was both good and bad. It was good, because there was much less pressure. Bad, for the same reason. You could go through periods of feast and famine. Today, marketing copywriters have many more opportunities, and if you market proactively, you’ll have a waiting list of clients.
I’ve been asked for a quick overview of Seven Days To Easy Money: Copywriting Success, so here we go.
Here’s what we cover in the seven days program. We say “seven days”, but you download all the material immediately, and then progress at your own pace. You can take seven days or seven weeks or longer; it’s up to you and the time you can spare.
Daily Lessons: Step by Step to Success.
This program’s been helping new copywriters since 2002; it was updated again in 2014. Over the years, I’ve kept the “day by day” format, because it provides a framework. You know exactly where you are.
Each lesson starts with Objectives. The objectives for Day One, for example, are:
- Assess your skills and motivation.
- Discover the copywriter’s basic tools: the brief, and the Writing Services Agreement.
- Learn the fast and easy way to write excellent copy day after day.
Each day also has tasks. As you complete each day’s tasks, you build your business. The tasks for Day One are:
- Assess your skills and motivation.
- Create your own briefing sheets.
- Create your Writing Services Agreement.
You Learn Copywriting Basics: Your Exercises Give You a Kickstart on Your Portfolio.
You learn by doing, so each lesson has exercises, which you can share with me if you wish. Some students send me everything they write, others send me specific material on which they’d like feedback.
These early exercises build your initial portfolio, so that when you start marketing your business, you have something you can show your clients. Of course, we discuss creating a basic website – or not. Website/ no website is your choice. You may prefer just to create a profile page on about.me, for example.
You Learn How to Market Your New Business.
Hate marketing? Fear not. There are so many ways you can market your new copywriting business that you’ll easily find some marketing methods which are fun and enjoyable for you.
In my early years, I gave talks and presentations to any group which would have me. If you dislike public speaking, you can create simple presentations to upload to sites like Slideshare – no business attire necessary. :-)
My own copywriting business was strictly local for many years, until I created my first website in conjunction with my “Internet for business” book, which was published by Allen & Unwin. That plain and simple website got me huge and consistent opportunities – without updating. I didn’t create angelabooth.com until 2006. Today, you can win clients from all over the globe right away, if you wish.
Coaching Is Included: You’re Never, Ever Alone.
As with all our products, we include coaching in Seven Days To Easy Money: Copywriting Success.
Why? Two reasons. Firstly, I adore working with students. It’s always been fun for me because I learn a lot. It makes me think, and I get a big kick out of it when students start getting their own clients.
Secondly, we have students from all over the world, at many different stages of experience, who work with our programs. Wherever you live, we want to ensure your success with the material.
Questions? Thoughts, ideas? Get in touch. Julia and I love to hear from you. Enjoy the program. :-)
