    Diana Ioppolo from Ignite Content


     

    Want to know what your life could be like if you joined the Clever Copywriting Community?

    We’ve asked a few of our members to tell their stories and share their wins since becoming a Copy beast.

     

    Tell us about yourself

    I’m a former corporate marketer turned copywriter.

    I help service-based businesses who sell to other businesses with copywriting and content marketing strategy.

    I started my business in 2020 (I know, timing) but despite bushfires, a pandemic, and parenting little people, it’s going better than I ever imagined – thanks to TCCS!

     

    What made you decide to join TCCS?

    I had thought about venturing into the copywriting world on and off for many years. After having my second baby, I was ready to work but didn’t want to work full time or commute.

    So, I thought it was time to try it.

    But I didn’t know where to start or where I’d find the confidence to get my first client. I didn’t even know if this thing called copywriting was something I could even make happen.

    I’d had TCCS and Kate Toon on my radar for a little while. I’d heard so many success stories from people in the group.

    It wasn’t a matter of why join, but when. I wanted some kind of road map to help make this vague dream a reality. With TCCS, I got it – and a whole lot more.

     

    Do you have any reservations before joining?

    I didn’t have many, to be honest.

    I’d tried some of Kate’s freebies which had so much value, I was sure the membership would deliver.

    Any reservations I had were really around myself and wondering if I could put myself out there and do this.

     

    What’s been your experience of your membership? Have you enjoyed it?

    The community wasn’t the biggest drawcard when joining, but it’s the biggest reason I stay.

    The TCCS community is a standout part of the membership. It’s full of smart, generous people from all walks of life who willingly share experiences and perspectives. You can ask any question, and someone will jump in with the answer you need.

    They’ll also be your biggest cheerleaders. Technically, we’re all ‘competitors’ but the vibe couldn’t be any further from it.

    TCCS members want everyone to succeed, and we all help each other be better copywriters and business owners.

    If you’re just getting started, they can provide a huge source of inspiration. They’ll show you it can be done and motivate you to keep going on the tougher days.

    Beyond the community, I love the Masterclasses. They help me stay up to date with the latest trends and best practices. Run by people who are doing the thing they teach every day, so you get practical education that makes a real difference.

    And of course, there’s Kate. A copywriting, business-owning, SEO guru-ing superstar who is generous with her time, knowledge, and advice. She tells it like it is and is the boss/coach/butt-kicker we never knew we needed.

     

     

    Can you share some improvements to your pricing, client relationships, process, or skills since you joined?

    When I joined, I had zero clients, a draft website, and the lack of confidence that comes after being at home with a baby and toddler for 1.5 years.

    For the first few months, I just watched the Masterclasses and observed Facebook chats. I was learning and preparing myself mentally before officially ‘launching’ in January 2020.

    Since then, I’ve:

    • Signed up 23 clients and subbed for 3 TCCS Copy beasts.
    • Made 80% of the income from my last job.
    • Learned to pitch, getting a 70% response rate from my TCCS job board pitches, and earning over $8k in jobs. In other words, 13 x the annual membership fee.
    • By the end of the year, I’d built a decent portfolio, had multiple clients come back for more work, and started getting referrals from past clients (the best kind).

    But that’s just the numbers. I’ve learned about selling, negotiating, managing clients, presenting my work, keeping clients happy, what to charge, how long copywriting projects (usually) take, managing my mindset, and more.

    The best bit is that this learning comes in so many ways.

    Discussions on Facebook, Masterclasses, and live videos from members of the group – I’ve learned more than in any formal learning environment. And as a bonus, it’s relevant and practical.

     

    Final advice for new (or experienced) copywriters thinking of joining?

    If you’re serious about making a copywriting career happen, a TCCS membership will get you there faster.

    Without it, it would have taken me years to get to where I am now.

    But more likely, I would have just given up.

    Stop thinking and start doing.

    Taking action every day, even if it’s small, is the only way to get your copywriting gig off the ground.

    And join TCCS, it’ll be the best money you’ll spend

    Jake Anderson from Jake Anderson Copywriter


     

    Want to know what your life could be like if you joined the Clever Copywriting Community?

    We’ve asked a few of our members to tell their stories and share their wins since becoming a Copy beast.

     

    Tell us about yourself

    I’m a copywriter, martial artist, a self-described professional sausage, and a soon-to-be dad to two kids.

    I’ve worked in digital marketing and have a degree in Sports Development from Griffith University on the Gold Coast.

    I specialise in playful and light-hearted conversion copy.

     

    What made you decide to join TCCS?

    I needed something to give me that push, and it had to be in the right direction.

    Writing copy is only a part of the beast.

    Learning the hard way to run a freelance business with guesswork and optimism will only get you so far.

    I needed guidance from people with years of first-hand experience to navigate the pitfalls of “winging” a successful business.

     

    Do you have any reservations before joining?

    I thought, “this is for established copywriters, surely this isn’t for me.”

    I was wrong.

    If you’re serious about copywriting and you join TCCS, you’ll receive the same respect for taking the leap and investing in yourself as any successful professional copywriter.

     

    What’s been your experience of your membership? Have you enjoyed it?

    I couldn’t imagine where my copywriting business would be if I hadn’t joined TCCS.

    I know it would have been a lot less smooth.

    Without the confidence I’ve gained from TCCS, I wouldn’t charge my worth like I do today.

    My friends in the group get me. They’re a source of empathy, guidance, and sometimes a living, breathing thesaurus when I need!

     

     

    Can you share some improvements to your pricing, client relationships, process, or skills since you joined?

    I have ADHD, and I simply wouldn’t have a functional business without the TCCS templates.

    Buy them and you’re buying a working system from wooing your first clients to receiving Christmas cards from them years after.

    I recently helped a small business owner who had hired a digital marketing agency to sell his passion project. While they were reaching people through Facebook ads, emails, and clicks on Google, the fish weren’t biting. Thanks to TCCS, we recently celebrated his highest sales day ever. From 2 orders a week (on a good week) to netting $14,325 in a single day. All this in the week before Black Friday.

     

    Final advice for new (or experienced) copywriters thinking of joining?

    If you need motivation, inspiration, direction, guidance, and support or to stop “guessing” your way through running a business, this is the place.

    Cal Chikwendu from Cal Chikwendu Copywriter


     

    Want to know what your life could be like if you joined the Clever Copywriting Community?

    We’ve asked a few of our members to tell their stories and share their wins since becoming a Copy beast.

     

    Tell us about yourself

    I’m a copywriter for kick-ass, ethical brands.

    I write whizzy words and crack-a-lacking, inclusive content to help you win more customers and make a difference in the world.

    I put your personality into your words and turn crappy content into happy content.

    I write so you get time for all the other things.

     

    What made you decide to join TCCS?

    As a newbie to the word-slinging world (or so I thought), I wanted to get to grips with all things copywriting. I needed to go beyond books and blogs and find guidance for the next steps.

    I wanted to learn from the best.

    I heard Kate Toon was the higher-being-gift to copywriting and it turned out to be true.

    Kate’s a whiz, packed full of knowledge, advice, thoughts, and ideas.

    She shares all she has like a teenager sharing selfies. She shares everything she’s got. Baring all on copywriting, SEO, and brand building.

     

    Do you have any reservations before joining?

    Before I joined I was hesitant to spend money on a membership.

    Nowadays there’s so much “Gimme a few quid and I’ll teach you to go from living in a paper-bag to being a millionaire by working one hour a week”.

    Was it the same old same old?
    Would I get value?

    I thought it might be like entering a room full of self-inflated egos or BS backbiting. (Been there before and left quick-smart).

    Oh, my-o-my. How wrong was I? Joining the TCCS membership has been worth every * single * goddam penny and more.

     

    What’s been your experience of your membership? Have you enjoyed it?

    So much value.

    The membership offers everything I want as a small copywriting business.

    Tips, tricks, and oodles of tools and templates.

    I’ve saved tons of time trying to craft my own – these templates make you look pro from the start.

    There are Masterclasses, Coffee chats and Toon Training live with Kate. So much to learn and ever-evolving with new sessions every month. I still have plenty to discover.

    And don’t forget the Job Board. People searching for copywriters post their job for any member to apply or they seek you out using the profiles.

    The egos and back-biting are nowhere to be seen. I found myself amongst a (virtual) room full of like-minded, helpful, generous humans.

    Always willing to help, putting you at ease, bigging you up when you need it, pitching in, and subbing out.

    I’ve made some brilliant connections, done work for others, and found some new BFFs!!

    It doesn’t matter if you’re a complete newbie or a superstar copywriting guru – you get plenty of value back.

     

     

     

    Can you share some improvements to your pricing, client relationships, process, or skills since you joined?

    After joining I discovered my past experience counted. I’m a newbie copywriter but needed to factor in the writing I do every day at my day job. Web content, healthy lifestyle leaflets, government briefs, and reports.

    Two months into my membership I gave pitching a go. I bought the Copywriter Mega Pack and tweaked them to be mine. I threw my hat in the ring to re-write a website advertised on the Job Board. Blow me down the business owner loved my vibe and gave me the job.

    After writing the first 5 pages, the client wanted another 5 pages. Then a video script. And finally, 6 blog articles.

    One stab in the dark ended up boosting my copywriting confidence ten-fold.

    It paid enough to cover my TCCS membership for the next 14 years. And introduced me to a web developer who now uses me as his go-to copywriter.

    Win-win-win.

     

    Final advice for new (or experienced) copywriters thinking of joining?

    My advice for any copywriter thinking of joining TCCS is to stop wasting time faffing about.

    Should I or shouldn’t I?

    While you’re yo-yo-ing around, you could be:

    • Learning new, top-level tips and tricks of the trade.
    • Increasing your confidence in linking with movers and shakers in the copywriting world.
    • Getting to know (and subbing for) other wonderful Copy beasts.
    • Knuckling down your niche.
    • Charging what you’re really worth.
    • Going from zero to hero – plodding along to flying high.

    What’ve you got to lose? Nil, nothing, nada.
