    HOT TOPIC Fastlane Opportunities for Writers

    Sort of, but not quite. To be honest, and this might just very well be the ol' "growing older and resisting change" phenomenon (I'm 23, so maybe I'm just grumpier than average), but I think humans' willingness to let a machine/program do everything for us is probably going to lead to our...

    HOT TOPIC Fastlane Opportunities for Writers

    Pretty sure we'll be able to leverage a "Written by ACTUAL human beings!" USP real soon.

    HOT TOPIC Fastlane Opportunities for Writers

    I haven't read the whole thread yet, but I've been a copywriter for the past 8-9 months, earning good money. I stumbled (well, more like force-entered) into the video game writing industry recently after contacting an important person in the space. I won't say who, but they're one of the most...

    HOT TOPIC Are you an ENTP and wonder why you can't get things done when working for yourself?

    Was just going through your post and noticed some clear "function speak" in your sentences, so I figured I'd share: Introverted Feeling (Fi) Extroverted Thinking (Te) followed by Introverted Feeling (Fi) Extroverted Thinking (Te) Extroverted Thinking (Te) Introverted Sensing (Si)...

    O/T: HEALTH Anyone using the Wim Hof Meditation Method?

    I've been doing cold showers for a while and noticed I have even fewer symptoms from Crohn's disease. As of today, I'm doing two 3-minute cold showers a day (water is literally freezing cold where I'm from) as well as the breathing exercises. I already took one of two showers, stepped outside...

    WEB SCHOOL Is this how you make sites that SELL?

    That's not how it works. When your business is in services and you're working with a client you should be focusing on THEIR clients. How to get THEIR clients to buy. How to get THEIR clients to click on CTAs more. How to make it easier for THEIR clients to navigate through the website and...

    WEB SCHOOL Is this how you make sites that SELL?

    You're looking at the wrong businesses if you want your site to really sell. The brick and mortar store you're talking about, nobody here would truly make a difference to their business with a website, including Fox. And that's simply because it's a physical business and the site would mostly...

    WEB SCHOOL Hustling! My progress as a freelancing web designer

    Anything can be used as a case study! Sure, you may not have increased their customers by a statistically significant amount nor upped the traffic to their website, but you made it much more effective for said traffic to convert thanks to the improved UX! That's valuable. You can also ask your...

    HOT TOPIC Are you an ENTP and wonder why you can't get things done when working for yourself?

    ENFP and ENTJ both share extraverted thinking and introverted feeling (Te, Fi) so they can sometimes be mistaken for one another (but only at first glance). You're definitely showing signs of a divergent, non-linear thought process, which points to extroverted intuition (Ne), the dominant...

    Eliminating action faking -- Learning vs Executing in copywriting and sales

    Ok, so what from I see here you're absolutely qualified to start offering this as a service to go with your web design. The copy is pretty good! I know a bunch of copywriters and most of them would be ECSTATIC if they were able to write what you just did for Doom. Your biggest obstacle is by...

    Eliminating action faking -- Learning vs Executing in copywriting and sales

    I'm sure you've practiced empathy many times in your life so far! But interesting take. I did do some ad copy years ago for one my ecommerce store atrempts. I had also edited a few product descriptions. But that's it. If you were to go to on Facebook Ad Manager right now and used their...

    WEB SCHOOL Hustling! My progress as a freelancing web designer

    Awesome progress man! I like how the first person/business you helped is mental health-related, something that's close to you and your life. If I were you I'd make sure to help this client as much as possible to maximize their results and use them as a case study to find other clients in this...

    Eliminating action faking -- Learning vs Executing in copywriting and sales

    I like to remind myself that everyone reading my copy is a real human being with their own flaws, imperfections, worries, and is likely looking for ways or things to help better themselves/their quality of life. Just like me and you. So I tend to keep it light. I empathize with the audience, I...

    Eliminating action faking -- Learning vs Executing in copywriting and sales

    I got into copywriting late last year with zero experience and I'm currently working with 7 and 8 figure businesses. The biggest advice I can give you is to go for the target audience's emotions. I mean, business/marketing principles should always be applied, but "selling" shouldn't be the top...
