Do I have to be a good editor/proofreader to be a copywriter?

Do I have to be a good editor/proofreader to be a copywriter?

This answer might surprise you a little bit. You do not need to be an expert editor or proofreader to become a copywriter.

However, the point of copywriting is to sell through words…meaning you need to have a solid grasp of the language so you can communicate effectively.

That also means you need to have basic grammar, spelling, and punctuation skills; otherwise, your writing will be difficult to read and understand, making for a very unhappy client.

No matter your grammar skill level, you should always run your copy through a spell checker at the very least. These tools aren’t perfect but they will find glaring errors that could be potentially embarrassing.

I also recommend using Grammarly if you’re looking for a step up from a basic spell checker. Again, it’s not perfect, but it’s better than nothing!

If you really want to make sure your copy is as error-free as possible, I suggest having a trusted friend or colleague read through it. A second set of eyes can’t hurt (unless they’re worse at grammar than you are 🙃).

Don’t let your failed spelling test in fifth grade or your C paper in English class prevent you from becoming a copywriter. You got this!

Is there a demand for copywriters?

Is there a demand for copywriters?

If you’ve ever wondered “Is there really a demand for copywriters?”, the short answer: YES!

Longer answer: The need for copywriters is tremendous!

This is because copywriting cannot be automated as our human brain, spirit, and soul are all necessary.

Look, even cashiers at Walmart are being replaced by self-service kiosks!

Finding a job that is secure, is becoming more and more challenging!

At Costco the other day, I even saw they had installed a self-service area for ordering the famous Costco hotdog, pizza, and frozen yogurt.

Everything from car repair to telephone answering is being replaced by automation. Don’t work in an industry where you are replaceable, instead work as a copywriter.

Call the doctor lately? How about your favorite pharmacy? If you have, the chances are your first line of communication is through an automated system, because automation is taking over everywhere!

Copywriting requires a human dimension, the emotional component, and intuitive ability that takes it from mediocre to amazing. That’s what makes it such as reliable career choice.

Do you want job security in an industry where you will always be in demand? Then consider copywriting? It’s your key to your financial security.

Do I need a college degree to become a copywriter?

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.

If you’re wondering if copywriting could be your ticket to financial freedom (hint: it can be!), I invite you to check out my FREE guide: Is Working From Home as a Freelance Copywriter a Good Fit For You?

I go over eleven key traits every copywriter MUST have in order to be successful. I’ll also give you insight into what you don’t need to become an excellent copywriter. I think you’ll find that part very reassuring–maybe even surprising.

And remember, I always give it to you straight–you won’t get any fluff from me!

Instagram #1 – What Is It and How Do I Set Up an Account?

This post contains affiliate links. If you choose to make a purchase through one of the links I’ve provided, then I’ll receive a small commission at no additional cost to you.

 

Have you been wondering about Instagram and how to use it? Technology can be a real beast for women of a certain age. I know that I have struggled to understand all the newest things that people rave about online.

Here I am, a woman who has an online business, and I confess that I have been confused over Instagram. Should I use it? If so, why? And the real question…who is going to teach me to use it? Because let’s be honest, it can be pretty intimidating to figure out new social media stuff.

That’s why I wanted to write this series of posts on one of the most popular social media platforms out there – Instagram. Because maybe you don’t quite “get it” either. As I learn how to navigate some of the most popular online platforms, I want to take you along for the ride and show you how to not only use them but how to leverage them for your online business.

https://therenegadeboomer.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/Instagram-1-1.png

The Popularity of Instagram

Instagram is far and away the hottest new kid on the block when it comes to social media, even though it isn’t actually very new at all. Instagram launched in October of 2010 but it has gained in popularity by leaps and bounds, over the past couple of years especially.

Most of the younger generation left Facebook and went over to Instagram when their parents (and grandparents) started using Facebook, which I find absolutely hilarious. So what do we do now? We follow them to Instagram, of course!

Today, let’s talk about what Instagram is exactly, why you need to know, and how to set up your account.  In future posts, we will talk about how to use each feature of the platform, how Instagram can help your business, and finally, how to set up a marketing plan for your business using Instagram.

Are you ready to learn all things Instagram? Great! Let’s jump right in together.

https://therenegadeboomer.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/Instagram-1-1.png

What Is Instagram?

Before we get too deep into the more technical aspects of Instagram, let’s talk about what it is.

  • Instagram is a social media platform that is visually based. Users can share photos, videos, and even go live on the platform. The point of Instagram is to gain followers that will like, and hopefully even share, your posts. You can follow them back, find more people to follow, and find high-quality content to share.
  • Instagram is a great way to build an audience online. It’s a great way to connect with your audience and get to know them and allow them to get to know you in a more authentic way. Instagram allows you to share pieces of your personality with your audience that other platforms don’t offer.
  • Instagram is an effective way to find brands that will sponsor content on your blog. We will talk about this in depth in another part of this series but for now, just know that if you want to do sponsored brand work, your Instagram presence is something you need to get very serious about starting right now. Don’t worry, this series will teach you what you need to know to build a firm foundation on Instagram!

Why Is Instagram Important to Me as an Online Business Owner? 

Owning an online business can feel overwhelming at times simply due to the sheer number of things you need to do and places online that you need to be. From Facebook to Pinterest, from blogging several times a week to studying your analytics to see what’s resonating with your audience, you are already busy enough. You don’t need one more thing to do unless it is going to make a real difference in your bottom line.

I am here to tell you that Instagram is going to make that much of a difference. You need to learn it and start using it. Here are the reasons Instagram is so important for your online business:

#1 – Instagram allows you to build trust with your followers. If you want your audience to not only stick around, but to also make purchases through your affiliate links or buy products you create, you have to help them learn to trust you.

People buy things from those that they know, like, and trust.

Instagram will help you develop that type of trusting relationship with your audience. Using Instagram to show your followers a side of you that you just can’t get across in a Facebook status or a blog post allows your faithful followers to feel like they know you on an even deeper level.

Think about it for a minute; who are you most likely to trust when it comes to making a purchase? Some Facebook ad from a person you’ve never heard of? Or your best friend? A television commercial or your sister?

You want to be the person that your readers turn to for advice. In order for them to see you as that person, you have to develop authentic relationships with them. And that begins by letting them get to know you. The real you. Not just the pretty pictures of your house right after the cleaners leave but the back porch with the dirty boots all over it.

#2 – You can increase engagement with your audience. Do you know what engagement is and why it’s so crucial to your business? First of all, engagement is not someone just liking your post. Engagement is when someone takes that next step and shares your post, comments on your post, or sends you a direct message on Instagram.

Why does engagement matter? Simply put, engagement shows others that you have a specific audience and they are interested in what you are offering. If you want to monetize your business, engagement is what will get you there. Brands that work with bloggers on sponsored content want to see that you have a truly engaged audience.

You don’t have to have a huge audience. Don’t worry about trying to reach some magic number like 1K or 10K. Just start working on engagement with the audience you do have. If you have 100 followers, that’s the same as having 100 people waiting to hear from you. How do you engage those 100 people? Stay tuned. We are going to cover that in depth. I promise not to leave you hanging.

For now, just know that increasing audience engagement should be your number one priority once you get some followers.

#3- Increase your opportunities for paid sponsorships. One of the easiest ways to monetize your blog is through sponsored brand campaigns. This simply means that a brand or company pays you to write about their product.

Now, I don’t want you to think that this has to be some kind of slimy, sleazy sales pitch.

You should write authentic, story-driven content that includes the product as part of the story you tell.

When brands see that you have a highly engaged audience and you know exactly what they want from you, those brands will be excited to work with you. If you want increased opportunities to work with brands, you need to begin to connect with your audience on Instagram.

How Do I Get Started on Instagram? 

Now that I have convinced you how important Instagram is to your online business, it’s time to get down to the nitty-gritty and learn how to use it.

We are going to go step-by-step and include plenty of screenshots so that by the time you finish reading this post, you will have an Instagram account all set up. Don’t worry about how to use it yet…we will get to that in the next post because there is a lot to learn!

Are you ready? Here we go!

By the way…as you will see I’m new to Instagram too! I’m learning and implementing right along with you. So let’s begin…

Getting your account set up > The first thing you need to do is go to the App Store on your phone and download the Instagram app. It is a free app so you don’t even have to enter credit card information if you choose not to. Just type Instagram into the search bar in the App Store and click on the Instagram option when comes up. When the Instagram picture pops up, click “GET” and then Install.

You may be asked for your Apple ID and password. (If you use an Android device, follow the steps that it gives you.)  Go ahead and type those in if required. (Some of you will have the thumbprint option to install an app.) The app will now download to your device. Once it is fully downloaded, go ahead and click on it to open it. Your next step will be to set up your account.

You will need to decide on your username and password first. You can use your real name or the name of your business. Don’t use something cutesy that has nothing to do with you or your business. If you have a blog, use your blog name if it isn’t taken.

https://therenegadeboomer.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/Untitled-design-1.png

Your username is important, so choose wisely.

Follow the prompts to choose a profile photo for your account. You can use a photo already in your camera roll or take a photo right then.

Be sure to use a good quality, headshot-style photo.

Learn how to set up and make money from your Instagram account with these simple illustrated steps for beginners.

You want your followers to know what you look like.

If you click on the person icon on the bottom right of your screen, you can add a link to your website and a personal bio.

You want to make your bio tell a story. You have 150 characters, including spaces, in which to say what you want to say. Use keywords for your business in this space. And they don’t have to be complete sentences. You really don’t have room for complete sentences. I highly recommend you look at bios of other people in your industry and see what their bios look like to get ideas.

Learn how to set up and make money from your Instagram account with these simple illustrated steps for beginners.

And keep in mind, people change their bios all the time so you aren’t stuck with what you write.

Once you have your bio filled out, you are officially on Instagram!!

Throw some virtual confetti and let’s go on to the next step.

Find the People You Want to Follow > Your next step is finding people to follow. You can search by a person’s name or username if you know of some already. Your search button is at the bottom of your home screen at all times. It’s the magnifying glass icon.

Perhaps there are a few bloggers you enjoy reading; go to their blogs and click on the little Instagram icon where they have their social media icons (usually at the top of their homepage) and that will take you to their Instagram account where you can click the blue Follow button.

You won’t see anything on your Instagram home screen (also called your “main feed”) until you follow some people. Do that now. Go to the search tab and enter the names of some people you want to follow or click through some blog links.

https://therenegadeboomer.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/Untitled-design-1.png

Once you are following some people, you will see all of their posts in your main feed. When you see a post from someone you follow, you can either click the blank heart underneath their post or just double tap the post to tell them you’ve seen it and you like it.

Ready to practice? You should be seeing several posts in your main feed if you followed some people in the last step. Practice double-tapping on their posts and watch the blank heart turn red!

This is the first way to interact with people on Instagram, by liking their posts!

Learn how to set up and make money from your Instagram account with these simple illustrated steps for beginners.

But remember, Instagram is all about engagement so you definitely want to also leave comments for people on their posts. You can do that right underneath their post. Just click on “Add a comment” and type away. Be genuine in your comments; you aren’t commenting just to get them to notice you. You are looking to build authentic relationships with people. More about that in a future post!

Now you have an Instagram account and several people you are following! You are engaging with people and building relationships. Wasn’t that easy?

I am so proud of you for getting your account set up. And it wasn’t even hard, was it?

You can do these things.

Sometimes, we just need a little bit of coaching along the way from a friend and that’s exactly what I want to be for you. A trusted coach who understands where you are in life and a friend to hold your hand as you discover new ways to grow your business online!

Be sure to come back for the next post in this series as we learn how to begin using Instagram to grow our businesses. I can’t wait to do it together. <3

Interested in Freelance Writing for Money? 5 More Reasons You Should Become A Copywriter

This post contains affiliate links. If you choose to make a purchase through one of the links I’ve provided, then I’ll receive a small commission at no additional cost to you.

If you’ve considered freelance writing for money, you should pay close attention.

Because sometimes trying to get paid for writing might feel like a farfetched dream, especially if you want to make a reliably generous income.

Here’s a fact: I’d never been paid to write anything in my entire life, unless you want to consider writing a short business letter as a secretary in that scenario.

But when I made the decision to learn how to become a copywriter, that changed very quickly.

In fact, with no previous experience as a copywriter, I catapulted to multiple six figures my very first year.

Right about now, you might be wondering…

How I Started Earning Six Figures As A Freelance Copywriter

My copywriting career began with a decision.

I’d been cruising through the Internet one day, looking for something I could do besides the face-to-face selling and promotional tours my husband, Ron, and I had been involved in.

We were tired of racing back and forth across the country, setting up and running huge marketing events week after week.  We were tired, and I knew there had to be a better way.

Somehow, I stumbled onto an article about copywriting. And as I read it, I quite literally broke out in a sweat. This was something I knew I could do! I just had a feeling about it, even though I’d never even heard of copywriting prior to that moment.

I understood right then and there I was going to figure it out. I could FEEL it.

During this time, I’d invested in a one-on-one consultation with a life coach. I’d already dealt with some pretty hair-raising events in my life, and I was working my way through what it all meant, and what I should do next.

It was the next best thing to meeting with her in person. I knew she had a live event in Maine coming up, and I really wanted to go. But I knew there would have to be a miraculous influx of money for that to happen.

This is where mindset and manifesting enter into the picture, but that’s another story for another blog post!

The short version is…when I shared my story with my life coach, she suddenly announced that if I could get there, she would love for me to speak for about 15 minutes at her Maine event!

That’s when I knew I had to pay attention to the door opening before me. I was willing to do whatever it took move forward.

Ron was completely on board. He believed in my conviction and commitment to my goal of becoming a copywriter. And from previous experience, he knew when I had a “feeling” about something, it was worthy of our full attention.

So we did what any rational couple would do…

We sold our humble little home in Arizona to raise enough money to live on while I was getting started!

I had a pretty deep intuitive feeling about how copywriting could work, so I literally sold the VIEW of that humble little home. Why? Because that was the most special and unique benefit of that little house!

I wrote up an ad, took a photo, and drove down to the Thrifty Nickel newspaper to place my ad.

The clerk looked at me questioningly when I laid it all out on the counter.

She said, “Don’t you want to include some photos or description of the house in your ad?”

“Nope,” I replied. “That’s not what’s gonna sell it!”

And sure enough…we sold it for cash to the first person who called about my ad.

That act of faith, and taking decisive action, led directly to…

My First Copywriting Job

We drove cross-country to that event, and I stood before the audience, hands shaking, and made my presentation.

And a really weird thing happened…

People surged around me afterwards! Some of them were crying. One told me I was “golden.”

I was shocked!

One of those people was a sweet woman named Barbara Winter.

Barbara is all about (wait for it…) making a living without a job!

Seriously, you can’t make this stuff up.

She has books on Amazon and travels the country making presentations.

And there she was, standing before me.

She told me she had an upcoming event in Las Vegas and hadn’t been able to sell any tickets with her current marketing copy.

She asked me if I would like to write a sales letter for her.

Of course, I said YES! And I did.

And she sold out her event. Just. Like. That.

I think I made around $500 for that first sales letter. I dunno, it may have only been $250. Either way, I was thrilled!

That’s how it all started.

And it just grew from there. I kept on. I learned. I implemented. I raised my fees.

And I made multiple six figures the first year.

I don’t tell you this to brag. I tell you so you can understand this simple truth…

If I Can Do It, YOU Can Do It.

Now don’t misunderstand.

I’m not saying you can do exactly what I did.

You may do less. You may do MORE!

I have no way of knowing.

What I know for sure is you have to be willing to trust in yourself. You have to learn.

You have to believe it is possible for you to succeed. You have to put in the effort.

If you are willing to do all of that, the chances are you can begin making some very good money working from home as a freelance writer, a COPYWRITER to be exact.

And when you do, here’s what can happen…

Becoming A Copywriter Can Change Your Life

It certainly changed mine! I never in my wildest dreams imagined what was possible.

And please remember, I am the classic example of “Late Bloomer!”

Seriously, I am. So if you are also “of a certain age,” don’t worry!

I was well entrenched in my baby-boomer demographic before I even knew what the heck a copywriter WAS or what they DID.

You are NOT too old, too under-educated, too late, too big, too small, too young, too ANYTHING to learn how to become a copywriter.

I’ve touched on a few of these before, but it’s been my experience we often need to hear things more than once to “get” it.

So let’s jump in, shall we?

5 More Reasons You Should Become A Copywriter

1. FREEDOM!

You get to take charge of your life, pure and simple. Work when you want, where you want, with clients YOU select. Travel or not. Range far and wide, or not. Work from home whether it has an earth-bound foundation or rolls along on wheels.

You never have to depend on a crazy boss for a raise or ask permission for time off.

You get to give yourself ALL the benefits, all the time.

2. CONFIDENCE!

You’ll discover newfound confidence as you hone your skills. You’ll understand the value you bring to your clients and exactly how to help them create success in their business too. You’ll realize you have untapped talents that are finally finding their way to the surface.

3. INCOME!

Look, a lot of folks want to write. But how many of them make really great money?

The life-changing aspect of becoming a copywriter simply cannot be overlooked or ignored.

I advise new copywriters I’m working with to never even consider writing a sales letter for less than $1,000. And when you learn how to do it, you can easily write a sales letter in a week. You do the math. And that is at the LOW end of what is possible as a copywriter.

Being a word nerd can pay you extremely well. And as they say, a picture is definitely worth 1,000 words. OK, if one is good, how about FOUR?

This is the first home Ron and I were able to afford when we got married later in life. (There’s that late-blooming thing again!)

It is commonly referred to as a single-wide trailer.

This was BEFORE copywriting came into our lives: (Balanced on cement blocks!)

This is our home AFTER copywriting: (Yes, it’s all about the VIEW!)

Here’s our RV BEFORE copywriting: (Oh dear—so many repairs!)

And here’s our RV AFTER copywriting: (Thank you, copywriting!)

Don’t get me wrong. I was intensely thankful for everything we had before copywriting.

Before I met Ron, I was a survivor of domestic violence who had lost everything and become homeless. I was grateful and amazed I even had a second chance.

But experiencing what it means to really have options in life and fulfill dreams has been a blessing beyond measure.

Which leads me to…

4. IMPACT!

Copywriting can create entirely new options for impacting others in the most positive way–with your message, with your passion, with even more things you want to accomplish.

For me, one way has been by teaching others how to find their freedom through copywriting and mindset too.

The opportunity to OVER deliver in this realm is also life-changing, both personally and for those you serve.

And its super fun to create memorable events in spectacular settings…while delivering uncompromising value.

For example, here’s an event I hosted in the most gorgeous setting of coastal Maine. Yes, did you notice? Maine again! Not a coincidence. Seemed appropriate somehow, don’t you think?

We started with the best SWAG ever…an Apple MacBook for every attendee!

As you can see, the attendees were THRILLED!

Yes, it was an intimate and expensive event, and yes, they got full value from it…

5. LEVERAGE!

Your copywriting skills can be leveraged into even MORE!

For starters, I can think of four different women I’ve trained as copywriters who have gone on to fulfill even bigger dreams…

  • A fashion designer for children
  • A ghost writer for high-level entrepreneurs…
  • A globally known influencer
  • A literary agent for authors…

And personally, as a strategist, launch specialist, speaker, intuitive coach, mentor, and product creator.

When you choose to be a freelance writer by becoming a copywriter, the sky truly is the limit!

Whether you want to work full-time or part-time, copywriting can help you to…

  • Make more money than you did in an office
  • Pay off your debts
  • Create your own security before, during, and after retirement
  • Work on your terms, as much or as little as you want
  • Travel and work from anyplace that has an internet connection
  • Start a thriving business on a shoestring
  • Change your life!

Becoming a copywriter has totally changed my life in countless ways.

And I’d love to help you change yours!

8 Reasons to Create a Work at Home Job as a Freelance Copywriter

If you’re looking for a way to create a work-at-home job for yourself and make a great living, I definitely recommend you look into becoming a copywriter.

Learning to be a copywriter and working from home online changed my life in ways I couldn’t even imagine when I first started.

First, a little backstory…

My husband, Ron, and I had to figure out how to make a living from the first moment we met. We met later in life, after we’d each had previous marriages, kids, and our share of life’s challenges too.

He was the guy living with roommates because his previous life had left him on the edge of survival mode. I vividly recall he was wearing cheap plastic white tennis shoes from Walmart when I met him.

Yeah. Didn’t marry the guy for his money, that’s for sure. 😆

As for me, I was emerging from the biggest crisis of my life, which involved my very own psychopath who tried to do me in. I’d had to flee with my children, losing every material possession we had. We literally were left penniless, homeless, and shell-shocked.

But we prevailed! I met Ron and together we figured out how to create an entirely new way of life.

Along the way, through our RV lifestyle, we stumbled into an entirely new possibility. We began doing some amazing promotional tours for big ad agencies.

We went on the road for national promotions like Got Milk, Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, and Novartis Pharmaceuticals. We traveled in our RV, and for some of the promotions, I drove the specialty rig too.

For example, I hauled the “Wonka Mobile” all around the country.

Here I am standing with the setup and Willie Wonka “himself” before I went purple (hair)!

8 Reasons to Create a Work at Home Job as a Freelance Copywriter

This particular event was on Navy Pier in Chicago.

And here’s the Oompa Loompa!

8 Reasons to Create a Work at Home Job as a Freelance Copywriter

And here’s a funny secret…both Willie Wonka AND the Oompa Loompa at this event were my daughter! 💜

She was on a college break, so we were able to hire her to help with the Chicago event.

That darn Oompa Loompa costume was cumbersome too! Her arms were pinned to her sides, restricted by the big plastic head, and she could only see what was right in front of her, so I had to lead her around by the hand.

It was quite a time for us, learning how to “sell” a concept…an experience, without money ever changing hands. It was our responsibility to engage the public so effectively, they would want to participate in our events, which were fun, colorful, and free.

For Willie Wonka, we gave away the book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory where they could also win a golden ticket for more goodies, and we gave away all kinds of Wonka candy (sorry dentists and parents of America!).

It was all about getting eyeballs and engagement from the crowds of people at our events as diverse as the Boston Marathon, Major League Baseball games, fairs, and festivals.

We even did an event inside a Hollywood movie studio!

It was a pretty big deal actually, as the marketing events were funded at multimillion-dollar levels. But it was also exhausting, as we crisscrossed the country every single week, with event scheduling we had no control over.

Eventually we moved on and figured out the fine art of selling physical products face-to-face. We got very good at it, becoming top sellers in the nation for our product.

We were even invited inside the Pentagon three different times to set up shop and sell our product.

8 Reasons to Create a Work at Home Job as a Freelance Copywriter

That was truly a fascinating experience we’ll always remember.

But again, the physical demands of this wore us down.

And THAT is when I discovered copywriting!

8 Reasons to Create a Work at Home Job as a Freelance Copywriter

If you like to write and have an interest in marketing, it could be the perfect fit for you too.

But before we go any further…

Maybe you’re wondering…”What does a copywriter do?”

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

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.

In our case, I’m talking specifically about being a freelance copywriter, creating a thriving work-at-home business for yourself, even if your home has wheels.

So the “copy” part is all those wonderful words. It’s everywhere you look and listen. And it’s not going away. In fact, it is a multi-trillion-dollar industry! How’s that for job security?

And the writer part? Well, that could be YOU!

Here are 8 Reasons Why Copywriting Is the Perfect Work at Home Job 

RV-Inspired Posters, Decals, Quote Cards, Pins — all FREE? Yes, I Want Them All!

          1. Creating your copywriting business is extremely affordable.

 You probably need to invest in a quality copywriting program to learn the basics.

This can be a very reasonable investment, especially considering the amount of moneymaking potential you will have when you acquire the skills.

I probably started off with an investment of less than $1,000 to get a handle on what copywriting is all about. That turned into multiple six figures within the first year.

I’m launching a brand-new copywriting program very soon, so stay tuned for that!

As a matter of fact, I’ll be launching it at an introductory price that will make it VERY doable for you.

If you’d like to be on the early-bird notification list when it’s ready, you can sign up here so you don’t miss it!

You will need a reliable Internet connection, a computer or laptop, a cell phone, and a space where you can work. I also use my printer quite a bit, so I would recommend you have one as well.

          2. You can become a copywriter without a college degree or previous experience.

I did not have either of those going for me, and it simply is not necessary.

In fact, sometimes the folks with journalism or English degrees find it HARDER to get into the groove of copywriting, not easier. 

Why is that? 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.

          3. You can make an excellent income as a freelance copywriter.

In fact, you can make more as a copywriter than many other types of freelance writers.

The big difference is the need for copywriters is all about the client making money. Often it is LOTS of money. As in millions.

When they have strategic copy that works to create more sales, they make more money. Simple as that. Entrepreneurs and businesses need copywriters!

And they will pay.

For me, I started online around 2004. Nobody knew who I was. But with a very basic beginning in copywriting, I was able to hit multiple six figures in my first year.

And I did it entirely from my home on wheels too. It really IS a perfect job for working from home online, no matter where you are.

As for the money…

I’m not saying everyone can do what I did that quickly. I’m probably unusual in that.

But it is certainly possible to get to a very healthy five figures within the first year.

Take a look at what Salary.com shows for national average earnings as a copywriter:

8 Reasons to Create a Work at Home Job as a Freelance Copywriter

And that’s just an average. Fact is, working in an agency as an employee actually pays LESS than working as a freelance copywriter.

Many agencies require a college degree.

They will have tightly constrained salary limitations regarding how much you make and when you can get a raise.

And you’re still under the thumb of the powers that be. Boo!

Why would you do that when you can be your own boss instead?

          4. There is an ongoing need for copywriters that continues to grow. You can’t be replaced by offshore outsourcing.

Just based on cultural norms, nuances, and common marketing practices, you are guaranteed you won’t be replaced in this way.

While the rich resource of offshore workers is extremely valuable and helpful to many areas of entrepreneurship and business, copywriting is not one of them.

And the need is tremendous! Flexjobs.com analyzed over 49,000 companies and their freelance job posting history between January 1 and February 28, 2018.

Copywriting won’t be automated. Your human brain, spirit, and soul are necessary.

Look, even cashiers at Walmart are being replaced by self-service kiosks.

At Costco the other day, I saw they had installed a self-service area for ordering the famous Costco hotdog, pizza, and frozen yogurt.

Everything from car repair to telephone answering is being replaced by automation.

Call the doctor lately? How about your favorite pharmacy?

Chances are your first line of communication is through an automated system.

Copywriting requires the human dimension, the emotional component, and intuitive ability that takes it from mediocre to amazing.

          6. Freelance Copywriting is extremely secure.

Notice I said FREELANCE. This isn’t the same as working for an agency.

While any business can be downsized, when you are a freelancer, you call the shots.

As a copywriter, you are the essential gateway to sales for your clients.

They need you! Especially when the economy goes through a rough patch.

I’m kind of embarrassed to admit this, but during the economic downturn of 2008, I barely noticed what was happening.

That’s because I was so incredibly busy as a copywriter! In fact, I had some of my highest earning months during that time.

          7. You can leverage your copywriting skills into other profitable niches for yourself.

🌟As a blogger, you can create blog posts that also highlight affiliate products you recommend.

This is one of the fastest ways to begin monetizing your blog.

Instead of random ramblings, you can become much more purposeful and strategic about the many benefits of blogging.

🌟You can create an email list of subscribers you can continue to connect and market to through well-written emails.

🌟You can take something else you are good at and love and turn it into a product you can get paid for.

Maybe you love to cook, sew, or build birdhouses. Start there and create a product around other passions and interests you have and sell it with your copywriting skills.

🌟You can use your copywriting abilities as a springboard to an entirely new career.

I’ve trained copywriters who now have thriving businesses as a consultant, clothing designer, highly paid ghost writer, and literary agent, just to name a few.

🌟Copywriting can be your “gateway” to successful e-commerce, selling physical products through sites like Amazon or Shopify.

I personally know many EIGHT-figure entrepreneurs who have built their empires around e-commerce.

🌟When you understand copywriting and marketing strategies, the sky really is the limit!

          8. As a freelance copywriter, you have incredible lifestyle freedom.

As you can see by rummaging around on The Renegade Boomer, we are blessed with an amazing lifestyle.

I literally work from anyplace we are, traveling in our RV, which is my mobile office, or from our homes in Arizona and Mexico.

These are just a few of the places I’ve worked as a digital nomad, from Disneyworld (with our granddaughters!); to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico; to the Oregon Coast.

8 Reasons to Create a Work at Home Job as a Freelance Copywriter

Copywriting is what has made ALL of this possible, from building custom RVs into mobile offices, to affording the fuel, to living in Mexico, to having the TIME, to creating our “World Headquarters” in Tucson, Arizona.

8 Reasons to Create a Work at Home Job as a Freelance Copywriter

It’s a powerful way to create a home-based business for yourself, even if you’re not into the RV lifestyle.

How about paying off all your debts, having vacations when you want, being there for your kids, or never having to worry about funding your retirement years?

It is all possible if you acquire the skills you need to become a freelance copywriter and are willing to put in the effort.

Oh hey, what the heck…

Let’s go one more!

          BONUS 9: TIME! You can work part-time as a copywriter and make a full-time income!

Seriously, you really can. In fact, you might want to keep that part a secret when dealing with clients. Shhhh. 🤫

You set your fees, not anybody else. I cover all this in my copywriting program.

That means as you become skilled in copywriting, there’s no reason you can’t decide you are very happy with your five- or six-figure earnings while working much less than 40 hours a week.

And did I mention you can get paid in advance to book your time?

There are SO many amazing things about being a copywriter, it could be a whole other blog post. Hmmm. Maybe it will be!

This is why freelance copywriting really IS the ultimate work-at-home job!

And remember, I’m happy to answer any questions you may have. Just shoot me an email or comment here.
