How Copywriting Royalties Work

Carline Anglade-Cole took her family on an exciting around the world trip …

Richard Armstrong took a year off work (with pay) to write a novel …

And Gary Bencivenga bought a $5 million mansion in the Hamptons …

All from their copywriting royalties.

Money they earned above and beyond their professional letter-writing fees. (In Gary’s case, those royalties were from just one package he wrote for Rodale!)

Granted these are incredible stories from legendary copywriters …

But we know many copywriters who regularly cash four- and five-figure checks … for letters they wrote months, years, and even decades ago.

Compared to many other professions, copywriters have unlimited earning potential, thanks to royalties paid out by satisfied marketers.

In today’s issue of The Writer’s Life, I’ll walk you through how royalties work … because I want you to have a solid understanding of the money you could be banking as a sales letter writer.

And if you decide the earning potential is for you, today’s a great day to get started because there is no more comprehensive level of training than in our brand-new Sales Letter Writing Mastery & Certification training.

Our Senior Copy Chief Sandy Franks has agreed to mentor a small group of eager writers and share her secrets.
