Clayton Makepeace was one of my first copywriting mentors.

Sadly, Clayton Makepeace left us for a better place a few weeks ago.

But when I study copywriting with my new mentor, Stefan Georgi, I see a lot of similarities.

In about 2012 or 2013, I purchased one of Clayton’s copywriting products called the Copywriting Quickstart System.

It was a monster course, complete with two huge volumes of about 500 pages each.

Back then I only had a few copywriting clients, so I funded the cost of the course, which I think was $1,000 or $1,200, with proceeds from my other online businesses.

That was a large chuck of change to dish out back then. But I’d heard so much about Clayton and how he was perhaps the world’s best copywriter at the time. I had to give his course a shot.

I wasn’t let down.

As the weeks went by, as I ploughed through the Copywriting Quickstart System, my confidence and knowledge as a copywriter increased.

And I probably paid for the course through attracting better clients within 3 months.

But I always remember the foreword at the beginning of the first volume.

So much so that I printed it out, and had it on the wall, above where I write for years.

It detailed very sound advice about Copywriting and being successful that I’d like to share it with you here…

Before you take the copywriting world by storm, there’s something you should know …

Pursuing a copywriting career is NOT a get-rich-quick scheme. It can, however, be the single best idea you ever had.

So whatever you do, do NOT be discouraged.

Resolve to do whatever it takes in the short term to reap the long-term rewards. Stick with it. Redouble your efforts. Refuse to accept anything but success.

Take my word for it …

The first time a client wires six figures into your bank account to pay you for two weeks’ work, you’ll be glad you hung in there.

In that moment, all the hours you worked to perfect your craft … all the rejection you faced in finding your first few clients … and all the sacrifices you made to build your copywriting business will all be worth it.

Yes it’s going to take some effort on your part.

If you think this is easy … if you sleepwalk through your work … if you fail to invest the mental and physical energy required to get the details right … if you resent honest, well-meant criticism … and if you’re going to cut and run the first time the going gets tough, there’s not much I or anyone else can do to help you.

But if, as my high school football coach loved to say, you’re eager to pour 110% of your genius, your creativity, and your energy into this …

If you’re willing to take the time and expend the energy to do it right … and obsess about the minute details that must be right to bring in every last sale …

If you’re willing to expend every ounce of mental and physical energy at your command … take your best shot … accept the consequences … take a hard, honest look at what you did right and what you did wrong … and learn your lessons …

And if, when all else fails, you can muster the will to pick yourself up, dust yourself off and do it better next time …

There’s no stopping you. Whether you’ve made it yet or not, you’re a winner in my book. And someday soon, you’ll find yourself relishing the winner’s rewards.

But what if nobody wants to hire you? Or worse: You create the best campaign you know how to create – and it flops?

Look. Let me tell you something that all the gurus out there won’t.

It’s not until you begin applying this stuff in the real world that you REALLY begin to learn.

You’re going to have to bang the phones for hours every day until you get a client – and those first few clients may not be worth a bucket of warm spit.

Courage … true courage … means being scared to death and then doing what needs to be done anyway.

Ok, I bet you’re not pounding the phones to get clients these days, but the message is clear.

And the message is very similar to what Stefan Georgi is saying about his RMBC Copywriting System.

  1. Copywriting is NOT easy. It’s bloody hard work and it’s never easy getting rejected by clients.
  2. You must be extremely persistent in your efforts to be a great copywriter.
  3. You must be patient and dedicated to the craft of copywriting.
  4. You WILL see the rewards if you put the effort in.
  5. Any copywriting course that promises “$10K a month in only 4 weeks” are total BS.
  6. You’ll need a copywriting coach.

With that said, I honestly believe there are very few copywriters who understand copywriting like Stefan Georgi.

And that’s why Stefan’s Copy Accelerator Mastermind is brimming with 8 and 9 figure marketers. They gladly pay the $30k+ yearly fees to learn from Stefan.

So I think the $1k cost of Stefan’s RMBC Method is an absolute steal.

And the truth is, I honestly think Stefan will bump up the price pretty soon.

So I’d invest now if you’re serious about becoming a copywriter or you want to improve every piece of copy your company produces.

P.S. What’s standing between you and the success you crave?

What are you afraid of?

What’s keeping you from sending your writing samples to a client who could make your career and then calling him or her to close the deal?

What’s keeping you from partnering with a copywriter/marketer who could take your company to the moon?

The best definition of the word “courage” I’ve ever heard is … “Being afraid and doing the right thing anyway.”

So here’s your assignment for today: Identify the one thing that stands between you and the success you dream about – the one thing that terrifies you the most.

And then – DO IT.

PPS: Then invest in Stefan’s RMBC Method. You’ll be so glad you did, 6 months from now.
