Now, just a year later, he's doing $40k/month.
What I did wasn't even that special, just solid email & content marketing (driven by decent copy). But it's the same result I've achieved for nearly all of my clients.
(Well, all of my e-commerce clients - let's not talk about the rock opera incident.)
So here's my dilemma, and it's something you experienced copywriters have probably run into: why aren't I selling my own products?
In my opinion, it's easier to sell someone else's wares: they've already validated the market, and I don't have to worry about supply, fulfillment, etc. But if my work can produce a loyal customer base so quickly, I think the rewards are worth the extra effort it will take to do it for myself. And frankly, I see this as the only way to live a comfortable life where I live without spending 20 years ascending the career ladder.
(I mean, have you SEEN Bay Area housing prices?)
How many of you sell your own physical products (not info products)? Any specific pitfalls you'd avoid? It's already getting too late for Black Friday...
(Note: Yes, I did spend some time looking through the forum to see what's been said before. Found some good stuff, but still felt like it was worth asking again.)
