In today’s special BONUS podcast, Douglas Pew and I interview one of our certified copywriting students: Beth Schmeisl.
We talk to Beth about why she joined the certification program and how that helped her land a job with the Harmon Brothers. Beth also gives us some insight into what it takes to make a viral ad, and it’s not something you’d expect.
Tune in to discover…
- ([0:54]) What Beth has accomplished that even I haven’t done… yet!
- ([1:29]) How she started her copywriting journey. People tend to forget that you have to start somewhere before you can get anywhere.
- ([3:20]) The paper ceilings she broke through and how she almost denied herself the chance to succeed as a copywriter.
- ([6:30]) How she landed an amazing job with the Harmon Brothers! If you’ve seen the viral ads for Squatty Potty and Poo Pourri, you know who they are.
- ([8:04]) The persuasive tactic she used to convince the Harmon Brothers to hire her. HINT: She’s certified for a reason.
- ([11:04]) What makes up 80% of the challenge when writing. It’s probably not what you think.
- ([12:41]) All the cool people Beth has gotten to meet through her job. Who knew working could be so fun?!
- ([14:13]) What it feels like to be a rockstar copywriter. It’s not easy to put your creative image out into the world for interpretation, but the rewards can be tremendous.
