Do I need a college degree to become a copywriter?

Is it true that I need a degree to become a copywriter?

This is one of the most asked questions I get from people looking to becoming a freelance copywriter. And the answer is “Nope.”

You 100% do NOT need a college degree or any previous experience to become a successful copywriter.

I didn’t have a college degree when I got started, but I still managed to make multiple six figures during my first year.

If that isn’t proof enough, I don’t know what is!

In fact, sometimes the folks with the journalism or English degrees find it HARDER to get into the groove of copywriting, not easier. Why? Because they often have to UN-learn what was pounded into their brains about “how to write.”

Copywriting is much more conversational and informal than many other types of writing.

If you can write like a person talks and factor in marketing strategy at the core of the “conversation,” you have the first foundational skills to becoming a copywriter.

Why are you qualified to teach copywriting?

Why are you qualified to teach copywriting?

So who am I and why the heck am I qualified to teach copywriting? Well, I’m glad you asked!

To give you a brief overview of my background, I’ve been freelance copywriting since 2004. I came across copywriting on the internet while I was trying to figure out my next move professionally. I totally stumbled into it, but I knew it was what I was destined to do.

The decision was made: I decided to go all in on becoming a copywriter. My husband and I even sold our house so I had money to attend a conference where I knew I could meet leaders in the copywriting industry. I really was that serious and determined!

And that first year as a copywriter, I made six figures.

I did that partially by generating over four million dollars in sales within 30 days for one of my clients. I netted him a million dollars in profit. And at the time, I was a complete unknown in the industry and a total newbie.

That’s a true testament to the blood, sweat, and tears I put into becoming the best copywriter I could be. Because I really wanted to do it!

I’ve also helped another client generate $1.55 million in just ten days.

I’ve literally made my clients millions of dollars over the past fourteen years, AND I’ve made multiple six figures myself every one of those years too.

Frank Kern, one of the most sought-after copywriters in the world, dubbed me the “Queen of Copy” and the “Millionaire Maker.”

Gary Halbert, another giant in the copywriting world, begged me for my million-dollar sales letter.

All of my hard work, dedication to my craft, and love of serving others has led me to where I am today. I’m now in a position to take what I’ve learned as a copywriter and teach others how to make money from home just like I do.

If a 50+ year old formerly homeless woman with no college degree can make multiple six figures with copywriting, SO CAN YOU!

What exactly is copywriting? + How you can make money from home as a copywriter

What exactly is copywriting?

So what exactly is copywriting? Copywriting is definitely different than plain ol’ writing! And here’s how…

Copywriting is the process of writing the words that convince, persuade, educate, engage, and empower every aspect of selling a product, concept, or idea.

That was a bit of a mouthful, but essentially copywriting is writing words that sell.

This could be anything from writing a landing page for a website, blog posts, opt-in copy, email sequences, video scripts, product descriptions, direct mail ads, catalogs, brochures…anything and everything that pertains to WORDS that SELL.

So you can see how copywriting is different than writing an email to your friend or a note to your boss. Copywriting is extremely intentional, deliberate, and focused. It takes real skill to be able to write content specifically created to establish a connection of trust, while selling a product or service to the prospect.

Just one more time for those in the back: 😉

Copywriting is writing words that sell!

And if you’re worried about potential sleaze-factor in selling? Not an issue. In fact, writing authentic and true copy is the ONLY way to go in my world. It should be that way in yours too.

Fact is, becoming a freelance copywriter completely changed my life. Yes, that’s a bold statement, but it’s 100% true. When I decided to become a copywriter, I knew I had to learn the skills and invest in the training I needed to be the best.

Now that I have 14+ years of copywriting experience under my belt making multiple six figures every single one of those years, I want to help YOU become a successful freelance copywriter as well.
