Copywriting Goldmine: One of 20 Insider Secrets to Great Copywriting
Each weekday during my Red Hot Copywriting Bootcamp, attendees (or recruits) get a daily drill designed to reinforce the training I give on weekly phone calls. The drills are illuminating and fun. Plus these drills build your copy from the ground up. By the end of Bootcamp, you actually have a sales letter that would have cost you anywhere from $3,000 to $15,000 to have written professionally.
So how do you get going? Grab a kitchen timer or stopwatch, a piece of paper and a pen. Your bite-sized drill today is to separate out the features from the benefits. So let's do an exercise.
Before you write a single word of copy you must define your product or service using features and benefits if you want to really connect with your reader. (When I'm trying to get my features and benefits to poke their heads out, I like to write by hand. I think there's a connection between the brain and handwriting.)
So we're on the same page, here are the definitions of each.
Now schedule 15 minutes of uninterrupted time to play and let's go!
It's no secret. The amount of money you make with marketing comes down to how well you craft your words. It's the most valuable skill you can learn for making money online. But not everyone wants to be a copywriter. So I wanted to create a program that makes writing fun and effortless for entrepreneurs and copywriters alike. That's how the Red Hot Copywriting Bootcamp was launched. Recruits who have gone through it agree - the Bootcamp is the roadmap to a copywriting goldmine. You learn a proven process for writing copy FAST that improves your bottom line. Sure there are other ways to get there, but we get it done in 4 weeks flat (plus 2 weeks of follow up critiques). Face it, if you're in business you're also a marketer. And all marketers know it's the words that sell.
So where do you grab this Field Guide for more copywriting exercises? Sorry. Only recruits of my Bootcamp can get it for now. So sign up today before the next session is full. It will be one of the best business decisions you've ever made. Red Hot Copywriting Bootcamp
