I say baloney.
It’s alive and well, and now more than ever, good copywriters are needed.
I’m sitting here typing this at my $6500.00 desk, flanked by 3 Sony FWD40LX2F/BI 40" LCD Monitors -- all busy bringing me the latest updates on not only the stock market but all the happenings of the world.
My office is inside my 1.5 million dollar 12 car garage, 9 bedroom, 12 bathroom house, all sitting on 50 acres of prime lakefront bliss.
This weekend, I may get in my Bentley Continental GT and drive out to the airport to take my Cessna CitationX and watch my favorite baseball team play.
Am I bragging?
Am I proud?
All this paid for because some business was looking for someone to help them turn their ideas into money -- some ideas that started in garages or basements -- sometimes written on napkins in a dark barroom, or brought about by the brain storming of a group of motivated entrepreneurs...
...ideas that someone had that they knew could make a fortune. All they needed was the right person to come along and help.
Yep, I’m that person, so are you.
We bring a concept that can change their fortunes forever. We bring hope. We bring exciting new ideas that keep them up at night dreaming of fame and fortune -- best of all, we deliver.
We're copywriters -- there’s a load of people still wanting to make their dreams come true.
Don’t know much about SEO, or backlinks, or adsense, or ranking number 1 -- dont’t know how to figure out google’s algorithms, or their secrets to get on the front page of the search engines -- I do know how to put the right words together in an ad that gets results.
We're copywriters -- we'll leave the page rankings to those who know more about it than us.
There comes a point in your life when you take stock of your situation and your goals and realize that it’s time to get going.
It’s time to put your plans into action -- time to announce to the world that you’re here and you know how to make them money.
There’s more to being a copywriter than making a living on the internet.
There’s a whole world of eager customers out there.
Here’s the problem...
You’ve got to get serious. You’ve got to get brave...you’ve got to stop worrying and caring what the rest of the world may think about you...they don’t pay your bills. They don’t support your family. Why let them dictate your success in life.
It seems like at night is when all your ideas and thoughts take on a new urgency -- you say to yourself that tomorrow you’re gonna go out and talk to some local business about hiring you to do work for them -- you’ve got your whole speech planned out in your head.
Tomorrow comes -- the whole world seems daunting and scary. Maybe you’ll wait another day till you get your plan together. Maybe this isn’t such a good idea.
Or maybe you approach a business and you stammer your way through your speech -- they’re not interested. You think to yourself that your plan is goofy.
Don’t give up.
Regroup and learn from your experience.
Keep trying -- you’ll hit paydirt.
In the mid 80s, I was living in my 15 year old car, sleeping in rest areas and truck stops, all the while trying to get ahead. I was going from businesss to business daily trying to get some work writing an ad for them.
I was turned down so many times that I got past my fear of rejection.
Through sheer determination -- I finally got hired to do an ad for a local car dealership.
Long story short, I turned the dealership into the #1 dealership in the area.
That got me noticed.
I went on to do copy for several large corporations....even started my own company.
You can do it -- don’t give up or let others tell you copywriting is dead
You’re the type of person that’s only limited by your dreams.
You’re a copywriter.
