Never underestimate the underdog!

There’s countless ways that can make you money, some of them require a physical effort and some of them require just a computer, some coffee and a real hustle.

Today i’m gonna walk you through a skill that everyone in the online marketing business ignores, but can earn you a good living if done right.

I’m talking here about copywriting, yup that’s right! You may have heard or read about it somewhere and there’s a good chance that you ignored it. Don’t worry because i did the exact same thing 2 years ago, i thought that it was just a waste of time and i focused instead on learning how to run ads.

After 1 year of straight failure, mainly because i couldn’t sell anything despite driving a lot of traffic through paid ads and spending a ton of money. My traffic simply didn’t convert at all.

I got into depression because i didn’t know what to do with my life. I was passionate about online marketing and i failed miserably.

Then i got a friend of mine recommended a book that literally changed my point of view on online marketing and marketing in general.

Cashvertising is by the genius Drew H. Whitman who is an advertising consultant. This book is all about why people take action and buy stuff at the first place.

You may be wondering what all of this have to do with the skill that gonna make you+100k/year, well just be patient with me here!

Copywriting is simply the act of writing a text that lead to increasing brand awareness therefore persuade a person or a group to take action.

By learning how to write a great sales copy i was able to increase my sales by 500%. Eventually i quit running ads and i began to get hired by clients to advertise their products by simply just writing.

The formula to a triple digits per year is simple!

In the next month, i want you to focus on just learning the skill. Whether is reading books, buying courses, watching videos…

The objective is simple. I want you to do whatever it takes to learn copywriting!

After learning copywriting, you want to position yourself as a specialist on social media, preferably Instagram, by posting relevant and valuable content regularly.

This step is crucial to land high ticket coaching and mentoring, which means doing calls and video chats with people selling them your knowledge because you are viewed as a specialist.

Since you don’t have any prior contact with your potential clients, we’re gonna change this step’s title to cold e-mailing.

Cold email is a personalized, one-to-one message targeted at a specific individual. It aims to get that individual to convert rather than spending money promoting your services to the masses.

In this step you can be as creative as you want. I personally offer a free service first to build the trust between me and the client and to show him the quality of my services, then i price myself at +1000$ per project.

You can this business as a side hustle, but with practice and experience you can scale it to +10,000k a month and maybe quit your job.

I’m not saying it’s going to be easy or this is a get rich quick guide, but it’s totally worth the effort especially like me and you don’t like having boss giving you orders!
