Ahh not much to say here. I became familiar with "The Fastlane" at the start of March 2021 and I started to do something worthwhile instead of playing Counter-Strike mindlessly. I took online courses about email marketing and nowadays practicing copywriting (also studying for college cuz need to keep parents happy and avoid potential future guilt), btw how's this for a month's progression? Well I'd say not quite the extraordinary but considering myself from me before discovering Fastlane, I feel much better about myself. This is also a little diary for myself.

Know any websites for practicing copywriting? Do reply if you feel like it :)

Last night I found someone who was willing to help me on my journey. Gave me some articles to read and then write an article myself. Now I know I like copywriting and content writing and if is going to make me $$ that's honestly a good start to head to Fastlane. Day 1 and I did horribly wrong but mistakes were made :). Time to improve (Respect the PROCESS)

Made my first dollar yesterday! I made about $ 2.5 I was so hyped even though the guy said my copy was very crappy but he decided to pay me for one of the articles I wrote. Told me I need to write at least 10-15 articles to get a pretty good idea of writing blogs.

Aight, I applied for an agency for an internship so my resume isn't blank. They said it's an unpaid internship which I'm willing to do. Some of you might think I'm stupid, but I'm pretty new to writing so it kinda makes sense.
Btw, I sent them an email with my past work samples and they replied back. Said that I was a good fit. Lmao sure I was. My strategy is to get good with writing then move on to digital marketing and ultimately, forming an agency myself. This is a part of my goal broken down into small steps.

Aight so I checked my email on the first two days VIGOROUSLY. After not getting a reply, I thought they dropped me. After 5 days, today I got a call from the agency asking if I was willing to fill the form. When I opened my email it was there. So yeah, signed the agreement and the internship will be lasting for a month and a half. I just want to sincerely thank @Valier, honestly if I didn't click on his video in the feed which I thought was another fake guru scandal, I wouldn't have discovered Fastlane. Damn looking back, I've progressed a bit. Not a no lifer Juan deaging people in Counter-Strike anymore.


Lmao, I laugh and think about my sidewalk friends who tell me it's useless, enjoy your life.

It has been week 1 at the agency, and I met its CEO. You bet he's a university student and has already completed over 100+ projects, mainly small businesses, and is now scaling up the agency (which is 3 people excluding interns) after a successful launch. Every time I meet him for some queries I just can't stop thinking that dude this guy is that 1% I am going to be. About my progress, I've been doing not so well because of lack of research. Also, they just gave me a vague idea and I thought I was supposed to get a specific topic from them

Started taking google digital marketing courses along with practicing copywriting. I'm also learning adobe illustrator side by side.

One month has passed since my last post.

What I've done:

I wrote some blogs and some SEO blogs, which was good for practice. I watched @Lex DeVille's videos on YT and got quite familiar with writing articles and blogs.

I wrote some website copy, which was appreciated the most idk.

Now, our content team of two is almost done working on a pitch deck for a client.

Two days left. On the 14th of July, I'll be completing my internship. I already have some outsourcing work ready for me so I'll be improving my writing there too. That's going to happen after 3rd August because I'll be having exams before that and I choose not to disappoint my mother. That time would be ideal for reading books.

Can't wait for the exams to finish. I know this is an excuse, don't hate me lmao

Petition to change Headline to "Progress of a 17 yr old"

If this gets over 10 likes, someone needs to edit the headline.

Hey Saad! Welcome! This isn't a website on copy, but a great book on it.

I'd recommend you start reading Cashvertising and incorporate that into your blog articles, it might help to spice things up. Just a young scribe on the journey, best of luck my man!

Finished my internship on 15th July 2021. Got the certificate and letter of recommendation from the agency. I talked to the CEO and decided to work for them and learn more. If I'm going to be starting an agency I need to get myself familiar with all the aspects.
