– [Narrator] Stevie asks, I want to start making money online but I don’t know where to start. – Hmm, let me share a story with you. Back then, when I was in my early 20s, I was a copywriter. And I was making good amount of money, six figure income a year as a copywriter. And then later on I was doing marketing consultation and then I transitioned into selling online and marketing online. I’ve been marketing online for now over a decade now. Now think about it in terms of internet age, it’s like dinosaur, right? I was marketing online when Yahoo! was popular, okay? It’s like pre-Google, pre-Facebook and all the things that we have.
I was selling and marketing and posting on bulletin board, like those online forums. That’s how I got started. Let me tell you something, most people, when it comes to making online, they’re thinking about what’s the latest gimmick and traffic and all. And all that’s important but the number one skill that you need to make money online, and it’s not what you think. When I was selling things on eBay and I was buying collectibles and Bruce Lee collectibles, ’cause I’m a huge Bruce Lee fan, items from Hong Kong and I was flipping them on eBay, I noticed the same item, the same listing, by changing the different headline or the listing description, it would affect how much I would sell, how much I could charge and how fast it would sell.
Now because I already have my background as a copywriter before transitioning into marketing online and selling and making money online, what I noticed is that skill gets transferred. It means this, the number one skill that you need to master in order to make money online is copywriting. What does that mean? It means learning how to use words to communicate. It means persuasion in print. It means turning words into money, into cash. I want you to think about it. Doesn’t matter what is that you wanna do. You wanna sell ecommerce? You wanna have a Shopify store? Guess what? The description, that’s copywriting. You are selling a product. You are selling a program. You’re selling coaching. Your landing page, that’s copywriting, right? Your video sales letter, what I’m doing now, script, no script, copywriting. I can do copywriting without thinking about it. Your email, that’s copywriting. Your Facebook ad, that’s copywriting. My YouTube video title, that’s copywriting. My description below the video, that’s copywriting.
Everything that you do is all about copy. It’s about communication. Unless and until you have mastered that copywriting skill, you’ll always struggle because copywriting gives you a tremendous leverage. Because the same ad, the same landing page, same amount of traffic, the same advertising dollar that you’re spending, you could be spending a dollar and getting, let’s say, a dollar return, you’re breaking even.
I could simply change the words. It could be in the ad, it could be in the headline, it could be on the checkout page. I could just change a few words and the difference, and I’ve seen it, even in headline, it could be two to three to five, even 10 times difference in terms of conversion. So instead of spending a dollar, getting a dollar back, you could spend a dollar, getting two, three, five dollars back. Wow, with the same product, the same offer. All you have changed is how you have articulate and communicate with your audience. That’s the power of copywriting.
