Why it’s a tough time for copywriters (and what to do about it)

I hate to be a Negative Nelly…

…but ‘making it’ as a copywriter is only gonna get harder going forward.

For one -

There have never been more copywriters in the game.

Plus with remote working becoming the new normal, ‘classic’ strategies like outreach and content creation have never been more popular (read: saturated).

BUT with that being said…

It’s more than possible to defy the craziness and rise through the ranks of the copywriting world.

If you’ve got the right strategy, that is!

Take one of my students, Alex, who used my Flaming Camel approach to generate a RELIABLE, high-paying income at the end of 2020…

…whilst the pandemic was still going strong.

In his own words:

(With one private detail blanked out, also where he says “course” he means “coaching program”)

(FC = Flaming Camel, in case you’re confused)

Did you catch that?

“I landed an in-house offer so good I couldn’t turn it down”.

Pretty cool!

Now, your goal might not be to work as an in-house copywriter.

But that’s beside the point…

Because Alex used my methodology to enjoy a consistent and DEPENDABLE income writing copy for a great client.

Sure, it’s not a sexy “$10k in 30 days!”.

But it’s a solid, reliable result that’s provided Alex with financial peace of mind.

Even better -

If something were to happen to that gig, he isn’t stressed.

Because he can come right back to my REPEATABLE process, execute it, and quickly land another retainer client if needs be.

Bottom line?

Whether your goal is freelance clients or in-house clients…

…I can help you make a long-lasting, high-paying career out of copywriting.

It won’t always be easy.

And it DEFINITELY won’t happen overnight.

(For most of my students, it takes 1–3 months to land their first retainer)

But if you bring the copy chops and the work ethic…

…I’ll coach you through the rest.

And notice I said “coach”.

That’s because the flaming camel is NOT just a course!

Instead, it comes with INTENSIVE coaching for 6 whole months…

So, wanna join the fun?
