“How I Launched a Successful Freelance Copywriting Business with NO prior Experience. And How You Can Too”

Freelance copywriting is a dream job. You set your own hours, can work from home and get to write for living. But you have a  LOT of challenges to overcome. For this reason, most people fail to turn their freelancing dream into a reality. If you’d like to know how to become a freelance copywriter with no experience, you can gain my insider secrets on exactly what to do to accelerate your freelance business’ growth and profits.

Freelance copywriting is surely one of the best ways to make a living. I personally now earn $120 for a single email, $180 per web page and even $1,000 or more for short sales letter (in fact, the real pros get paid that much for just one page). With such high rates of pay and job satisfaction, it’s no wonder 1,000s of people are eager to take the leap from full-time employment into freelance copywriting. But unfortunately, many FAIL in their first year. Why? Because they didn’t know how to become a freelance copywriter by overcoming all the hurdles you face launching a freelance business. This includes:

  • Developing your copywriting knowledge
  • Creating a portfolio of samples that will win over prospects
  • Design and develop a professional looking website, and not one that screams“cheapskate!“
  • Working out what to charge when just getting started
  • Knowing where to find clients willing to pay you a fair rate for your work (hint – it’s not on freelance bidding sites)
  • Making sure you get paid (and this one is critical in today’s economy)
  • How to turn one off projects into ongoing sources of revenue, vital for long-term success

These are all challenges most, if not all, copywriting courses don’t tell you about. Instead they just give you a basic grasp of copywriting skills then leave you to try and solve them on your own. For this reason, most newbie copywriters STRUGGLE for years in the freelance trenches, with no clue how to climb out and be on the road to success.

I know how hard is to get started

When I started my freelance business, I had only a few samples, no existing clients and a very basic understanding of what copywriting was all about. I struggled for YEARS until I was profitable. There were many times I worried about where the next project and paycheck would come from, or whether to give up altogether and resign myself to a soul draining j.o.b again.

I desperately needed someone to explain to me exactly how to become a freelance copywriter when you have no experience.

But thankfully, over time, I was able to devise systems for finding high paying clients, processes for turning COLD emails into HOT leads and to turn one off projects into ongoing sources of revenue. I wouldn’t want anyone to go through the struggles and sleepless nights I went through.

So I decided to reveal ALL my insider secrets on how to become a freelance copywriter without any previous agency or marketing related experience. I can help you avoid all the mistakes I made that delayed my success by years. Better yet, I can help you to accelerate the growth of your skills, client base and bank balance so fast that you can be profitable in months, and getting paid MUCH more than other writers just getting started.

Who am I and why should you listen to me?

Matt Ambrose – Direct Response Copywriter

My name is Matt Ambrose and I have been running my copywriting agency, The Copywriter’s Crucible, for the last decade. Over this time, I’ve managed to:

  • Grow a client list that includes major international brands, such as Siemens, Technicolor, Deutsche Post and Sage
  • Grow my fees from $0 to $600 per day, and rising
  • Able to charge $5,000 for a 40 minute VSL, and push my monthly earnings to $10,000.
  • Be listed among the top 100 copywriters in the world and be included on direct response legend Bob Bly’s referral list
  • Interviewed by leading UK copywriter Andy Maslen for his own book on starting a copywriting business
I’ve achieved this with no prior copywriting or marketing experience. All I had was a History and English degree and a desire to live by my wits and wordprocessor.

So if you’re thinking of escaping the soul draining corporate world, to sidestep from a career in journalism or to earn a part time or fulltime income from home, I can show you how to do it.

What copywriting courses don’t tell you

While there are plenty of great copywriting courses out there that can teach you the mechanics of writing copy, few explain how to grow a profitable copywriting business.

This includes:

  • WHERE to find high paying clients (hint – it’s not on a freelance bidding website)
  • How to submit winning proposals that get you selected over the 10 or so other copywriters that your client has approached
  • What to charge and how to make sure you get paid (and not wasting time chasing fly by night clients for months afterwards)

These are just some of the many vital lessons you must learn to build a successful freelance business.

Get ANY of them wrong and you won’t just delay hitting profit by a few months or years. You may CRIPPLE your business from EVER succeeding.

My guide on how to become a freelance copywriter gives you a roadmap to success

how to start a copywriting business sidebar
My eBook ‘How to Start a Freelance Copywriting Business’ enables you to gain all the tactics, strategies and knowledge I developed when launching my own freelance career from scratch.

It provides you with tons of valuable insights about finding and attracting clients, writing copy that sells and growing your skills so you have the potential to join the top copy dogs earning six figures or more. Better yet, it explains how to avoid all the pitfalls that prevent most from succeeding. This makes it an essential roadmap that will guide you from day one on your path to personal profit and career fulfillment.

  • How much to charge so you can be profitable in the first couple of months and before your ‘take off strip’ funds run out and you crash and burn and you’re then forced to go begging to get your old job back
  • How to convert queries into paying projects that turn into a lifetime of clients you can keep on a monthly retainer
  • The untapped places to find high paying clients that most copywriters have no clue about when starting out
  • The tactical way to raise your prices (so your existing clients arent just happy to pay but are wondering why it took you so long)
  • How to grow a professional looking portfolio without any clients (and build veteran level copy chops at the same time)
  • How to write brochures people want to keep, websites that convert, emails that get read and responded to and every other type of copy so you can delight clients and keep them coming back for more
This is just a sample of what it covers. Heck, it reveals so many trade secrets on how to become a freelance copywriter that I may just be creating competition for myself. But now the book’s finished I don’t want to see it left gathering virtual dust on my hard drive when it could be helping you gain your freelance copywriting dream.

Reader Feedback


“Being in the market for good copywriting knowledge, I checked this out. If the highly nauseating, cheesy, tiresome, cliched, paint-by-numbers copywriting style of the Warrior Forum, with the same templates with slightly different wording, such as ”Who Else Wants Their Own Cash Machine That Runs On Autopilot While You Drink Beer Watching The Game…”, or ”Here’s How To Get Your Own Slice Of The Facebook Money Pie Before Your Competition Does” doesn’t turn your stomach like it does mine, and you wish to replicate the same moronic patter in your marketing, then this book is for you.

If you want to write sophisticated, non-gimmicky, non-slimy persuasive copy that does everything it needs to to sell, but keeps your credibility and integrity intact, you probably can’t do much better than this guide I’ve been fortunate to stumble upon.

I’ve checked out a lot of the best copywriting courses lately and this outshines all of them.

On the Warrior Forum, the maxim is surely that bullshit hype sells. And to the idiots there (and some here) who consume that stuff relentlessly, it does. But in B2B, you’ll only turn off your readers. This book covers the fundamentals perfectly but gives in a brief, logical format to provide a great solid structure.” – underground906 – blackhatteam.com
