How to Become a Good Copywriter in FLAT 30 Days.
I hope you watched the video and made notes. Below I reveal some advanced steps to become a good copywriter.
1st Step To Become A Good Copywriter – Read Fiction every day for 30 Minutes
If you want to be a good copywriter, you need to develop 2 important skills.
1) The skill of Story-Telling
2) And the skill to build Relatable or Aspiring Characters
Remember this – Your primary goal as a copywriter is to get your readers to take some action.
– Clicking on a link
– Buying a product or
– Filling out a form
And the only time a reader will take action is when they can relate to your story or the characters in your story (Copy).
So to become a good copywriter, you need to learn how to write good stories. And one way to develop your story-telling skills is to read a lot of fiction.
If you are serious about building your career as a copywriter, here is one thing you should do every day.
Read fiction for at least 30 minutes a day.
I usually read fiction 30 minutes before I hit the bed. Pick a time you like… When you read is not as important as you read fiction every day.
Pick up classics like:
The Great Gatsby
Pride and Prejudice
A Tale of Two Cities
The Brothers Karamazov
These are good books, to begin with.
Remember, the goal to read fiction is not entertainment. But to learn how to tell great-stories from legendary writers.
2nd Step To Become A Good Copywriter:
Read At least 1 Control every day And Re-Write It!
In the copywriting world – the copy that generates the highest conversion is called a CONTROL.
Please watch the video below to know more about what exactly is a Control.
So now that you know what control is… The next logical question is – where can I find these controls?
And apart from that, here is another thing that you should include in your daily routine… Which is learn from Master Mentors.
Master mentors are people who change the industry with their work but are not open to mentoring.
Thankfully, we can still learn from them by reading their books.
You can find the entire list of Top Copywriting books from Master Mentors in the video below.
Pick these books, and block 15 minutes every day to read a chapter from one of these books. These 15 minutes will be the most invaluable 15 minutes you invest every day to become a good copywriter.
Alright, these were the 4 steps to becoming a good copywriter. If you are serious about becoming one – follow them for at least a couple of months… And trust me, you will be well on your way to building a great career as a copywriter.
Now at this point – if you are feeling like this is a lot of work and a lot of reading to do. Honestly, it’s not.
In fact, it’s fun if you think of it.
You are getting to read fiction.
You are getting to learn how to influence people.
Isn’t that fun or what?
And we are talking about becoming a good copywriter… So you need to train like one, don’t you?
Plus so far, all you need is about 2 hours every day. That’s it.
Think of all the amazing things that you could look forward to after you start working as a copywriter…
Imagine the freedom.
The life of your dreams – work from anywhere on your own timeline.
All of it could be a reality in a few months from now once you become a good copywriter.
And all you need to become a good copywriter is to follow my plan for a few months… That’s it.
