There are lots of flashy marketing schemes out there: Make 6 figures, write for the coolest clients, and get rich quick schemes. But that’s not what you need.
You need a copywriting business that brings in income consistently. So if you’re wondering how to get started copywriting and make money—on the reg—you’re in the right place.
But right now, maybe getting started copywriting feels like an uphill battle. You’re Googling right now, aren’t you? That’s probably how you landed here.
I Googled EVERYTHING when I first started my freelance copywriting business… And now I’m pretty good at this whole self-employed thing. Back then, I had just graduated from university. I knew that a “real job” wasn’t my style. I knew that I wanted to live in a fun city (I chose Montreal). And I knew that I was a half decent writer (I’m an English major). So I started freelance writing on the side while working in restaurants to pay the bills.
I had no idea what I was doing back then.
Now, I run a 6-figure copywriting business while only working 12 hours each week. Me + my team in the studio only work with clients that are aligned with our values, and only take on projects that are a good fit. Through my done-for-you studio and education platform, I’ve worked with, coached, and taught hundreds of entrepreneurs how to make good money online—copywriting being the through line that brings in that revenue.
That’s why copywriters are so valuable—you have the skills to help businesses grow.
Back to the Googling. If you want to get started copywriting, there’s a lot of noise online. How the heck do you sort through it all?
Building a business might be a lot of work, but it doesn’t have to be nearly as hard as people make it seem. I have realized so many times in hindsight that hitting certain milestones in my business always felt harder than it needed to be. And I was the reason why it felt so hard.
This stuff can be easy. We can choose to make it fun and easy. My best advice is to focus on the shit that matters. The stuff that’s really going to move the needle. And focus on that to grow.
There’s so many things that you could do, but you don’t need to do it all.
How do you know what matters the most? Lucky for you, I have a free course that walks you through the exact steps to figure that out. 4 Steps to Profit is a free 4 day course that will help you position your business… Even in a saturated market. It’s the perfect place to get started with your copywriting business. And actually start making money.
I always talk about the stages of business building. If you want to get started copywriting, you need to focus on the activities in the BUILD stage first. 4 Steps to Profit falls within that phase perfectly.
In this free course, I walk you through 4 simple steps. By the end of this course, you’ll know what makes your copywriting business so unique compared to others, how to talk about what your unique value is, how to stake your claim on the internet, and more. From setting clear goals to actually starting to outline the messaging strategy for your freelance copywriting business—4 Steps to Profit is the place to get started copywriting.
These foundations are the beginnings of attraction marketing strategies and tactics. If you follow through, the goal is that eventually, dream clients come to you vs you needing to find and pitch them.
If I were to go back and get started copywriting tomorrow, I would 100% start here… I wouldn’t waste years messing around with cold pitches and stressing about where to get copywriting clients.
With solid foundations in place, the next steps in your copywriting business are so much easier. This is where we get into the good part: GROWING + SCALING your freelance copywriting business.
When you are in the GROW stage, this is a good time to focus on HOW you do business. Internal processes, client experience, and boundaries are important here.
When you are setting up to SCALE, it requires an intense focus on business development. Instead of selling your time for money, your business takes on an entity that’s separate from you.
But if you’re just getting started copywriting, you’re not quite there yet—and that’s okay. Because you will get there. The best news? You don’t have to do all this without help.
Like I mentioned above, you don’t have to do all this alone. And all this might seem easier said than done. What could life look like though?
Imagine an inbox flooded with leads… No cold pitching necessary.
The best part? They’re willing to pay good money for your services.
Speaking from experience, it’s possible to build a profitable and sustainable business. I did it by focusing on building my brand’s online presence. Years later, it feels like I have total control… Access to a tap that I can turn on and off as needed.
The faster you act, the faster you’ll get to a place of natural flow with clients coming in (and actually make some money.)
Gain confidence in your freelance business and clarity to start showing up more strategically online.
Through this free video course, you’ll learn what it takes to build a profitable and sustainable business that you can grow with in 4 days. Position your freelance or service-based business to stand out and attract dream clients—fast. Learn more and enroll in 4 Steps to Profit here.
