How do I become the greatest direct response copywriter?

6 replies
This year, I have been teaching myself direct response copywriting and I love it.

I have set the goal of becoming world class in the next 10 years. 10,000 hours baby!

I have started writing emails for cheap with great results, but
I don't have enough volume to support myself full time.

If I could get a job at an agency as an intern being paid to write copy full time,
I have no doubt that my skills would ******* explode.

Can anyone provide a little guidance on how to get a job at an agency?

I've been trying for months with my dreams on the line, but
I don't have a college degree and no one is hiring for email or ad copy.

What would Gary Halbert do?

    I've said this on the copywriting forum before.

    Build a lead page, build a free product start getting leads.

    Build your own product to sell. Write a sales letter selling it.

    Sell it.

    Test and tweak until it rocks.

    2 things will happen.

    You'll become a great copywriter with a live sample that converts and you'll make money.

    I would email Stansberry Research. The copy chief, Mike Palmer has got to be one of the best copywriters in the world, not to mention he's a downright good guy.

    You've got to relocate to Baltimore but I think you'd learn how to be a phenomenal copywriter there.
