If you want to be a copywriter … or want to sell more of your product or service, then please read every single word.
It’s true. I did fail my English “higher school certificate” exam (my mark was 38 out of 100). It was probably my own stupid fault, but I just couldn’t get excited about writing boring essays on Shakespeare.
By just applying what I’m going to reveal to you, you could literally make over $200,000 a year as a copywriter, or triple your current profits if you’re a business owner. Let me take you behind the scenes and show you exactly how it’s done –
Ultimately my crappy attitude prevented me from going to university and studying psychology. I was pretty bummed about it too.
And as I sat there looking at my results, I wondered what the hell I was going to do.
So like nearly everybody else in situation… I got a job.
And then I left that one and got another. Then another.
To put it simply, after 12 years I was pretty dissatisfied with where I’d ended up. But I did enjoy what I’d learnt how to do – write copy. Which is the skill of writing advertisements (in fact it was the only thing that kept me sane!).
Little did I know that as a copywriter I’d learn so much about psychology – the very subject I wanted to learn more about before my high school exam results gave me a rude awakening.
But basically, at the various places I worked at, I had an office job that really didn’t pay very well, and often meant I had to take a 2nd job to try and get ahead (I delivered pizzas at one stage and worked at a petrol station during another).
And job satisfaction? Nope. Honestly… sometimes at work I was so bored I would sit there and daydream about going to the movies during office hours. Naughty me!
Luckily however, that wasn’t the only dreaming I did. For 12 years I dreamt about starting my own business. But I made excuses that:
I wasn’t ready
I wasn’t good enough, and that
I didn’t have enough money to start up a ‘lemonade stand’ let alone a business (“and even if I did, what if I failed?”.
Then one day everything changed.
I discovered an amazingly simple secret … from an old marketing guru … that changed the course of my life forever.
Once I truly understood this devastatingly easy… blindingly powerful secret, I could hardly sleep.
In that moment I realised I had inside me all the power I needed to start my own business. I couldn’t quite believe it.
And within just 3 months I went from earning
$450 a week … to earning $10,000!
