How a "Born Loser" Will Ensure Your Success

“Write what you know” …

 … to which I say, “Hogwash!”

Anybody interested in writing has heard this cliché many times. If it were true, then novice copywriters wouldn’t get any writing done. One of copywriting’s most attractive features is that you can earn while you learn.

But there are some areas where it’s crucial to be firmly grounded in what you write about. Any time you write to instruct, you must know what you’re talking about.

That’s why you’ll seldom see me writing about getting clients, maintaining a strong productive relationship with them, and managing the “money” side of your copywriting business.

It’s not that I don’t have a lot of experience in these areas. I do. It’s just that I’m not the expert you deserve for these critical aspects of building your career.

So, if I wanted you to learn the latest, most effective tools for managing all aspects of the business of copywriting, I’d turn to a real expert and have him teach you his secrets.

Who would I consider to be the expert in getting clients today? Who would I turn to?

I’d want to pick the brain of America’s highest-paid copywriter.

It makes sense. After all, this copywriter must be doing everything right to have earned this title.

The person I’d turn to has earned well over $1 million every year since 1995. Recently, he earned a whopping $1.4 million. Not in one year … in one month.

I’d turn to Clayton Makepeace.

And this is what Katie Yeakle has done. She’s convinced Clayton to interrupt his very busy work/play schedule to share his client-getting and business-building secrets with you. Secrets that made him the top copywriter in America.

Writing winning copy is just a small part of Clayton’s success …

You may have seen Clayton at an AWAI Bootcamp revealing his secrets for writing the highest-level copy. Or, maybe you saw him at his most recent AWAI live event: The Makepeace Method for Making a Fortune Writing Video Sales Letters. If you did, you know he’s a skilled, engaging speaker and teacher who knows copywriting inside and out.

But that’s not the focus of Clayton’s newest AWAI event. At his next AWAI success seminar, he’s going to show you how to launch and grow your copywriting business … even if you’ve never been paid to write a word of copy yet.

Clayton’s going to show you how to …

  • Land dream clients who respect you. Clients who value the work you do. Clients who seek you out.
  • Take on projects you want because they excite you … and not because you have to.
  • Build a stable, reliable, month-after-month income. You won’t have to scramble to find new clients, because you’ll be on lucrative monthly retainers from your dream clients.
  • Impress every new client you land, so they’ll seek you out every time they need copy written.
  • Position your clients for sudden, massive growth. Clayton’s secret for doing this transformed a small $4-million-a-year company into a massive $192-million industry giant. Just one client like this, and you may never need to look for work again.

You might think Clayton’s successful because he’s a Master Copywriter (which he is) who’s smarter … who works harder … and who’s more driven than other copywriters today.

Not destined for multi-million-dollar success …

Now, I have a huge respect for Clayton. So, please don’t take what I’m about to say wrong. I’m actually quoting him.

Clayton says that, given the facts alone, he’s probably the least likely person you’d expect to see enjoying his level of success.

For one thing, he dropped out of high school in 1969. At that time, his biology teacher told him, “You’re not going to amount to anything.”

Not long after that, his girlfriend’s mother convinced her to break up with him. He was – in her words – “a born loser.”

And in the early 70s, Clayton was slaving away at a $15,000-a-year job.

And now? Well, you know how successful he is.

Clayton reveals these stories about his past, because he firmly believes if he can do it … if he can gain the remarkable success he’s achieved … anybody can.

He knows you can rise to his level of success … once you know the secrets and business strategies he’s going to teach you on his birthday weekend, April 11-12, 2014. And he’s going to do this in his hometown of Sarasota, Florida.

Clayton has what it takes to help you build your copywriting business and attain his 6- and 7-figure success. But don’t take my word for it. Instead, listen to what Martin D. Weiss, PhD, founder of Weiss Research, Inc., has to say about Clayton …

“Clayton Makepeace is more than just a great copywriter. He is a world-class marketing consultant … a gifted business advisor … and one of the best strategic thinkers I have ever known.”

Literally a unique opportunity for you …

Clayton has never shared these secrets in person at an event like this one. And because of his busy work/play schedule, he may never do it again.

But you need to act quickly. To make this an event with the biggest possible impact for all the participants, Clayton and Katie have limited enrollment to just 100 copywriters, and nearly half those spots are already taken.

So, that’s just 50 spots left!

I’ve barely touched the surface of what you can learn from Clayton at The Makepeace Method: Building a Successful Copywriting Business. There’s so much more I can tell you, but there just isn’t room.

So, CLICK HERE to find out more about having Clayton teach you his detailed blueprint for building a copywriting business that rakes in up to six – even seven – figures per year. Plus, if you sign up this week, you’ll save $500 and get over $1,000 in gifts from Clayton.

So, do it now. Because those remaining 50 spots are certain to fill up quickly.
