Trained Copywriters Are In Demand
7 Out Of 10 People Reading This Have The Natural-Born Talents Of A Trained Copywriter
How do I know most people have the “copywriting gene”? Simple. Think about your life.
Have you ever asked someone out on a date, and they said yes? Got friends together for an impromptu picnic, ball game, trip to the mall, or to see a movie? Sure. Most all of us have.
What you did was put a proposition people liked in front of them; that’s the job of a copywriter.
Are You One Of Us?
Do you like to write? Letters, emails, journals, stories, songs, poems, Facebook, etc?
There are loads of folks who enjoy writing. Unfortunately, many have been told, “you have to prepare for a real career”, or “writing is fine…as a hobby”. I went through this all the way through high school and into my freshman year at college.
Then something happened.
My Aha! Moment
That something was a marketing professor, who saw some skits I wrote for a campus competition.
He suggested I sign up for his copywriting course. I did, and, Aha! I found what truly made me happy. And it sure as hell wasn’t accounting, or finance, or chemistry. That same professor got me an interview with a Madison Avenue ad agency. That was the start of a life I’ve loved living every day for the past 40 years.
It’s been said that “if you do what makes you happy, you’ll never work a day in your life”. So true.
Ever Think That A Trained Copywriter Lies Within You?
Those natural-born talents…all of us have them. The lucky ones get training to sharpen their skills and find their dream careers.
For copywriting, there are a few ways to do this. I interned for two years at a top-five Madison Avenue Ad Agency at minimum wage. But I got a tremendous education in exchange; they made me over into a trained copywriter. I learned the techniques, strategies, and secrets of the world’s best copywriters…and the realities of the business.
Not everyone gets to start writing at age 18 while still in school. Most of you have responsibilities and expenses that make fulfilling your dreams something you have to do on your own.
Coming Full Circle
That’s why, after 35+ years of freelance copywriting, and working with hundreds of companies and thousands of business owners, I built Write Like A Madman online University for you.

P.S. – If your goal in life is to punch into your job, 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, maybe copywriting isn’t for you.
On the other hand, if you love creating, working by your own clock, from home or wherever you are, the world of copywriting might be the best life you’ve ever imagined.
I love the challenge, the flexibility, meeting and helping interesting people, and…yes, I admit it…the money is darn good too.
