If you think “copywriting” (writing words that persuade people to do or buy something) is only about creating ads, you're missing the point. Copywriting is a skill has created more six-figure incomes than you might imagine. In some cases, seven-figure incomes.
For instance, one of my best friends generates a healthy $150,000 per month from his home-based business, and at its core, that business is fueled by my friend's copywriting skill.
If you truly want to start your own business, or create a second income stream, one of the first things I would recommend you learn is the basic skill of powerful copywriting.
Now, this is not some “get rich quick” scheme…
This is a serious business skill than can provide you with a comfortable six-figure annual income for the rest of your life.
You can run your business from anywhere. You can dream up promotions and campaigns, write the copy, and put the plan into profit… all in the same day.
And yes, you could “retire” from your present job, and use your copywriting skills to build your own marketing empire – working wherever and whenever you want.
I have run my business from all over the USA, Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, and the UK:
- Working form home in the Northwest US (sometimes at my house, sometimes from my office 5 minutes away, and sometimes from Starbucks!)…
- On the road in my motorhome (summer-before-last we put 8,000 miles on the coach, the last winter we spent in California)…
- Traveling to Chicago, San Diego, Los Angeles, Seattle, Toronto and New York…
- On vacation with family in Michigan, the Carolinas, Utah, and Montana…
- And from England and Scotland…
My results are not typical – you'll have your own results. Want to join me in the “not typical” club? Want to know how I managed to get these unusual results?
It comes down to one skill: copywriting. Now, ask yourself… if you learned how to master the art of “persuasion in print”, how could that change your life?
- Will you finally get your online business started?
- Will you write copy freelance, and live a life free from offices, meetings, and memos?
- Will you take your existing online business and multiply your profits using the power of copy?
Or will you keep struggling along like most “Internet Marketers”? That road leads nowhere. You don't need to learn the new “shiny object of the week” system. You don't need the latest greatest website. You just need a skill that is valued, and that has the power to give you leverage. The skill I recommend starting with is the ability to write persuasive copy.
If you have decided that I am right about this, give life to that decision and do something about it. Pick up a book, take a copywriting course, or just sit down and write a piece of copy. Today. Maybe even right now.
