Course Description

Why Copywriters are the Smartest People Online

Not long ago everyone wanted to work at home because of the “pajama draw”. The idea of getting up when you want to, working in your pajamas and avoiding the traffic jams does have its appeal.

Nowadays people are working online for the large income opportunities that far outweigh a limited global job market.

Many fail…sad… The reason they fail is blatantly obvious; their sales copy was either written by them or someone that has no idea what they are doing.

Those that succeed use professional copywriters. Words matter! Whether it is a simple email campaign or a 6 page sales funnel, copy sells… not the product.

The online marketing world is a gold rush.  One thing always stays the same, in any gold rush, boom, bubble, secular ascent, whatever you want to call it, there comes a point where an inordinate amount of money begins flowing towards those selling the shovels, no matter if the diggers are getting rich or not. Copywriters are selling shovels.

Two Reasons to become a Copywriter

 1.)    You want to be among the top internet entrepreneurs - not counted among the mass of failures.

 2.)    The absurd amount of money copywriters make causes you to drool.
