A Challenge from Nick Usborne
Over the last few days, I hope I have given you a strong sense of just how big the opportunity is for anyone trained in online copywriting.
There are literally hundreds of thousands of companies and organizations which desperately need your help … and will pay well for it.
And the demand for trained online copywriters is growing … not shrinking. As companies take more of their marketing budgets from print and TV and pour it into the Web, they need writers who can make them shine online.
This is a time of pivotal change for marketers everywhere. And there is a huge shortage of trained online copywriters.
The opportunity to earn as much as a lawyer or doctor is right there in front of your eyes. (But, without having to spend several years and tens of thousands of dollars on education to becoming qualified.)
But here is the question. Actually, the most important question: Are you going to DO this?
And for a follow-up question: Are you going to do it NOW?
All too often people get starry-eyed about this opportunity … but then fail to act.
Or … they get the program, learn the craft, and then … do nothing.
I understand that the prospect of making money as an online copywriter is not for everyone. That’s fine. But if you are one of those people who truly wants to make this happen, you have to take action.
And that is the real secret to success as an online copywriter. The people who really succeed are the people who take immediate and decisive action. In fact, this is the one thing all successful copywriters have in common. They are doers.
Over the course of my own career as a freelance copywriter, I have made a number of twists and turns along the way — like when I stopped writing for print and moved to writing for online media.
On each of those occasions, I have not only committed to making a big change, but have also given myself a deadline. I give myself a deadline to make sure I take action, and quickly. Why bother? Because I know myself. If I don’t have a deadline, I’ll just let things slide. And I bet the same happens with you too.
So here is my challenge to you.
Set a deadline for December 31st, 2013.
Before then, commit to working through my program, Copywriting 2.0. Then set yourself one additional goal.
That goal could be to pick up your first paying client. Or perhaps it’s to put up the first iteration of your freelance website.
Yes, these are big, scary goals. But they are doable.
But here is the magic … If you set yourself a tough goal, with a tight deadline, you will start the New Year with some powerful momentum behind you. You’ll hit the ground running.
And when that happens, you increase your chances of success a thousandfold. Really.
That’s it for now. I hope you have found this series of emails useful and inspiring. If you do take my program, you’ll be hearing a lot more from me … not only through the program, but also through a ton of bonus webinars and other materials.
Remember … it’s those who take fast, decisive action who are most likely to succeed!
