every tip and trick you need to build a successful copywriting business in LESS THAN THREE MONTHS
If you’ve wanted to be a writer for years, then you know how frustrating it is to watch others find success while you wait and hope and sometimes – just sometimes! – feel a little jealous. (Okay, maybe a lot jealous.)
You dream of finding a creative outlet, but you just can’t quite put your finger on what that might look like ... and it's killing you.
You want to make more money, be your own boss, be recognized for work that is truly your own. Is that REALLY so much to ask??
I know what it feels like when, no matter how hard you try to re-polish that manuscript or write that brilliant new short story, your words just never seem to generate the income you want them to. It’s crushing. It’s just so hard to watch the weeks and months and years pass without seeing any returns on your slavish devotion to the craft.
What are you doing wrong?
Well, it's really very simple: you forgot the magic ingredient. See, you take the wing of an elderly raven, mix it with the empty shell of a Turkish sea snail and the spine of a porcupine who's suffered a disappointment in love and ...
No. No, that's not it.
Because there IS no magic ingredient. There's just you, your craft, and the dream job that's waiting for you.
Don't believe me? I was write where you were, and guess what? Now I write all day, every day, and make amazing money doing it.
You can too.
... No, Really. You Can Work Full-Time as a Writer.
What if you ...
... could spend every single day writing, and didn't need anyone else's permission to do it?
... could put that creative writing or journalism degree to good use, from the comfort of your own home, IN YOUR UNDERWEAR? (What? Maybe. Who wants to know?)
... could work with clients who wanted your services and loved paying for them?
... could earn an excellent income, become location-independent and genelly live the good life ... even on weekdays?
Well, you can.
Overnight Copywriting will help you become the copywriter you were always meant to with clear, concise and achievable strategies to build your business in mere weeks.
Here's What No One Tells You ...
Working full-time as a writer doesn't mean working for other people, getting paid dirt or selling your soul.
It's simply of matter of getting yourself out there, attracting the right people, slowly building a client base and charging a little more each year.
Need some proof? Here's a breakown of my average number of projects, new inquires and per-project profits from the last three years:
Monthly Projects: 16
Monthly Queries: 10
Average Project Price: $20
Monthly Projects: 120
Monthly Queries: 25
Average Project Price: $40
Monthly Projects: 80
Monthly Queries: 50
Average Project Price: $120
You can see how quickly my business has grown. More to the point, I've reached a point where I can do MORE with LESS time. See Year Three, where my per-project price has gone up and my overall number of projects down? That means I'm not working as hard, but I'm making more ... all in about 20 hours a week. And that's just my main income stream, but not the only one.
Um. Yes, please.
Want in? I thought you might. The good news is: It's not nearly as difficult to get there as you might think.
The Real Question Is: Are You Happy Right Now?
When it comes right down to it, the most important factor in whether or not you should make a change is whether or not it will make you happier. Because at the end of the day, accolades and laurels and appearances really don't matter. All that matters is: Do you need a change?
Ask yourself, right now, and be honest:
Are you satisfied with the work you're doing, or does your job routinely inspire in you the kind of panic that makes you want to turn tail and run to Mexico?
Do you wish you had more time, freedom or money?
Would you prefer writing all day over what you do now? (That's a big one, friend.)
If you could have this job tomorrow ... would you?
This last question is really the most salient. If you answered "yes," that means you're ready for a change, and you shouldn't have to wait to make it.
Your life, after all, is not tomorrow or next year. It is RIGHT NOW.
And sure, making a small change to better your life doesn't guarantee a thriving business like, yesterday, but it does ensure you'll get there muuuuuuuuch faster than you would if you never tried.
Enter Overnight Copywriting
Why "overnight"? I mean, isn't that a little pat?
See, it's very simple: You might not have all the clients and money you need to be a full-time writer by tomorrow. But I can honestly say that in just 24 hours's time, if you enroll in this course, you will have all the tools you require to start a lucrative business.
They're yours for the taking.
I guarantee that if you follow the tools and strategies offered, you can have a well-functioning, financially sound and successful business in less than three months, and begin writing full time in a year or less.
But don't take my word for it. Take Video Sarah's word for it. To wit:
Video Sarah is the best, right? And if that's not enough, here are a few more reasons to learn:
Within a year or two, you'll make more money than you're making now ... pretty much guaranteed.
You can work from anywhere, including your back porch, that cafe overlooking the lagoon or even Mars. (Okay, not Mars. Clients probably wouldn't appreciate the transmission times. But still, almost anywhere!)
You will have way more time to spend with significant others, kiddos, doggies, guilting Jewish moms, the dude at the surf shop, whatever.
You can eat an entire pack of Oreos on a Monday afternoon without Shirley in Accounting seeing you. And let's not lie, that's the big one right there.
... I'm sorry, is that not enough reasons? Because it should be. This job is awesome, and you deserve it.

I absolutely loved this course! Sarah somehow makes dry subjects like finding your voice and identifying your target audience fun by teaching them with humor and hard-hitting exercises. No fluff, just tons of top notch information presented with contagious inspiration. I recommend Overnight Direct Marketing to anyone who wants to take their copywriting to the next level (while having lots of fun in the process).
Right about now, you're probably wondering one simple thing. The thing we all wonder whenever we read a sales page or talk to a guru who says they can help us. The Smart to Ask thing, the thing you absolutely need the answer to in order to ensure you're making the right choice for yourself and your business.
And that thing is:
Does it come with fries?
Okay, kidding. Although that's also a smart question to ask. Possibly one of the smartest, because fries are delicious, especially with gravy. But no, the real question is this:
Will it work for ME?
Fair. See, we've all got those broken dreams, the graveyards of old courses and workooks and downloadable products we were sure would finally, finally make our writing dreams come true.
I've been there. Trust me, you don't even want to see what my hard drive went through before I finally broke into writing for realz. It ain't pretty. So naturally, you want to be sure this course won't be one more addition to the digital rubbish heap. To which I say:
It all depends on you.
I want to be very clear that this course is NOT for:
Folks who don't yet know how to write.
People who love a good magic pill. (I mean, I'm one of those people. But this is not that course.)
Creatives who want this life because they're mostly attracted to the not-having-to-get-up-in-the-morning-ness or lunches-out-all-day-every-day-ness or easy-money-ness. This is not that life, sorry.
This course IS for people who are willing to hustle in exchange for freedom and success, who understand that being self-employed STILL means you're employed and have to work, people who want to live by their pens so badly they'll basically do anything to make it happen.
Okay, not anything illegal. But basically anything.
If that's you ... welcome. I can guarantee that:
Within just a few days, you’ll understand exactly what copywriting is and how it can work in your life.
Within just a few weeks, you'll have a basic business structure upon which you can build a profitable business for the rest of your life.
Within several months, you'll land your first clients and start seeing real income, and ...
Within several years (or less), you will be fully independent, able to work from anywhere, and make a lot of money doing it.
Here is what I know:
I know you can do it.
You can absolutely become a copywriter. A wizard of words, a peddler of prose, a smith of soliloquies! Okay, maybe not the soliloquies thing. This isn’t Shakespeare Academy, after all. I’m just a humble copywriter. I know my stuff, though, and that means I also know a dirty little secret: It’s not nearly as hard as everyone says it is.
It boils down to this: Do you want it to work for you?
Then it will. I promise.
I'm Sarah, owner and founder of New Leaf Writing. I've been a professional copywriter and content marketer for more than 6 years and have master’s degrees in both journalism and education. I teach clients and other writers how to create not-boring, actually-fun, totally-worth-every-penny content … so now you can stop putting people to sleep and start selling like crazy.
Uh oh, you're thinking, I don't have a master's degree in journalism! Does that mean it won't work for me?
Deep breaths. Also ... no.
Because here's the interesting thing: Once I graduated, I discovered that no one really cared about my pedigree.
Engaging with clients doesn't mean waving a diploma anymore; it means proving you know your stuff, can spin a good story and can maybe, sometimes, make them laugh.
I wish someone had told me all of this before I went to school and spent a bunch of money on a degree, because the truth is ... it wasn't necessary. I always knew how to write, I just didn't know how to sell myself.
A lot of the people I talk to are in the same boat: talented but underpaid – or just UNpaid – for their writing. Master's degree in creative writing? Seen it. Published short fiction author? Seen it. Well-compensated (but bored) science writer? Seen it. It's all well and good to be able to write, but if you don't like your job, where does it really get you?
I've been there ... with degrees and without, working in banks and working at media startups, struggling through my first few [failed] businesses, and it was a long time before I finally discovered the hard, hard truth. There is no magic pill, but there is a formula for building a business that brings in clients, engages with their audiences and makes you the money, honey.
You can learn that formula, I promise.
And if you're ready, well then, what are we waiting for?
Feel like you need a more in-depth look at some of the most lucrative types of copy after completing the foundational work? Fair enough.

Look, don't believe in no-way-out situations. That doesn't make anyone happy. I mean, I can barely handle a strong mouthwash, so I certainly don't want to be committin' to no course that might not be for me.
I'm assuming you're the same, which is why I offer a full 60 days for you to decide whether you like the material and keep it ... or bow out, no questions asked. But if you're really meant to become a writer, I'm betting you'll agree with many others that this is a fantastic place to start.
So go ahead, lean on the money-back crutch if you must, but don't wait any longer to grab that dream.
Imagine if you got paid for every word you wrote.
Imagine if you woke up in your own bed … and could stay there and write until 3 in your underwear, or hit a coffee shop to keep those words rolling (probably not in your underwear, though).
Imagine feeling like the master of your own business, and possibly even bringing on other writers to work for you. Helping them build THEIR careers.
And imagine not having to worry about money again. Saying goodbye to that sick “Will it be enough this month? Is this all there is to life?” feeling one and for all.
I know, sounds terrible.
Psych! It sounds AMAZING, and you know it.
So don't wait. Don't let inner voice get a-goin' and start trying to convince you that you aren't worth it, or you can't do it or it's just not meant to be. Because that's bull. It IS meant to be, and you're about to find that out for yourself.
Go, my little butterfly! Be free! Leave that caterpillar life behind and become the writer you were always meant be. I believe in you, and it's time for you to belive in yourself.
