Copywriting Keeps this Circle of Success Member and Bootcamp Alum Near the Ocean

Charlotte Crockett loves scuba diving and underwater photography — it’s been a treasured hobby for many years. Thanks to her thriving freelance copywriting career, she gets to spend as much time as she wants in the water, including extended stints in the beautiful Caribbean.

For Charlotte, a former computer programmer, corporate accountant, and insurance agency owner, the writer’s life has provided ultimate freedom. In past careers, she was stuck in an office or on the road traveling (on dry land).

“When I realized I could do copywriting anywhereand spend part of the year in Little Cayman if I wanted to, I said to myself, ‘I’m doing this,’ and committed a hundred percent," says Charlotte.

But success didn't come overnight. After completing the Accelerated Program for Six-Figure Copywriting, she joined Circle of Success to sharpen her copywriting skills. Not only did she go through advanced copywriting training led by experts, she also got free access to any AWAI program and a free ticket to AWAI’s FastTrack to Copywriting Success Bootcamp and Job Fair. Bootcamp in particular was a real game-changer in Charlotte’s burgeoning copywriting career.

“AWAI’s live events are where big leaps happened for me,” says Charlotte. “Learning information from the speakers and connecting with other Circle of Success members was really important. They walk you through key parts of copywriting and really give you more in-depth knowledge.”

These days Charlotte offers marketing strategy and copywriting to businesses in the insurance (which plays off her past work experience) and information marketing niches. She writes SEO-optimized web copy, sales letters, and newsletters.

Charlotte works hard and produces real results for clients. One project she worked on added $100,000 to a client’s bottom line very quickly. Yet, she makes sure to make time for fun, too.

“I really hate an inflexible schedule,” she says. “That’s why copywriting is such great fit. I can write in the morning and dive or teach in the afternoon.”

Charlotte built her freelance copywriting business from the ground up with help of Circle of Success and Bootcamp. And she discovered that her new-found skills were much in demand.

“Companies that see the value of copywriting are willing to pay for it. They know how vital it is to the lifeline of the business,” Charlotte says.
