Can You Make 10k a Month Copywriting?

Yes. You can make $10K a month copywriting.

I’ve done it already.

I’m here to share my story and how you can do it too.

My $10K A Month Story

What I’m about to share with you will sound insane.

I dropped out of college and at the time I was working at Domino's Pizza.

I wrote in my journal about how I bought a small course on Twitter growth.

At the time, I had nothing to lose.

Fast forward two years later and I have a Ghostwriting Agency making $50,000 per month and a personal brand with over 500K followers.

If I had to do it all over again in 6 months, here’s what I’d do.

How to make $10K a month in the next 6 months

The average copywriter makes about $57K in-house.

What holds most people back from making money copywriting isn’t their ability.It’s their beliefs.When I started on Twitter 3 years ago, I heard of people making $10,000/month.My mind was blown.But after surrounding myself around those people, it didn’t feel as far-fetched.And because it became normalized I believed I could get there too.With the help of my mentor, I got to work.That same mentor was also the first person I saw hit $50,000/month.My brain had a malfunction. I could barely process how much that was.Again, my beliefs were shattered.And this is where I think most people screw up…

They get cynical.

It has to be a scam, right?Mind you, there are a ton out there, so please do your due diligence.

But teachers, family, friends, and society have conditioned us to think small.

They want you to “be realistic.”

And because of this, it’s silly to think you can’t make that kind of money.

Brainwash yourself

If you want to overcome your programming, brainwash yourself.

Cut any and all negative people out of your life.

Be around optimistic, like minded friends.

Read books from those who’ve accomplished what you want in life.

Switch up your social media feed to show education instead of entertainment.

Be ruthless with the energy you surround yourself with.

Do this for a few weeks and you’ll notice something interesting happen…

Goals that used to seem impossible will now seem like a matter of time.



$1,000,000/month.There are legit people providing real value hitting those numbers.And the funny thing is...They’re not wildly gifted or big brain IQ geniuses.They’re like you and me.They believed it was possible.And because of their belief, they found a way to make it a reality.

If you’re starting out with copywriting, Here’s what I recommend:

1. Pick a sub-niche you have an interest in.

These are a great starting point:

  • Ghostwriter
  • Email marketing
  • SEO copywriting
  • Direct Response Ad copy

In the beginning, when you’re a freelancer with no experience, it’s important you pick the right niche.

If it’s not aligned with what you enjoy, it’ll feel like work and you’ll never become exceptional.

This can take time and some experimentation.

I chose ghostwriting because it allowed me to make money while being creative.

2. Educate yourself.

Read the book, “Expert Secrets” by Brunson.

This will give you a fantastic roadmap to follow for your journey.

Then, consume free content from those in your field, or, if you can afford it, pay for mentorship.

You’ll avoid all the mistakes they made and accomplish your goals 10x faster and save yourself costly mistakes.

3. Pick 1 social media platform and teach what you’re learning.

Talk about your experience and share your wins/failures. You don’t need to be an expert.

You just need to teach those a few steps behind you.

4. Package your skills together.

Read the book, “$100M Offers” by Hormozi.

Package the skill you’re learning into an offer using his framework.

Since you’re building an audience, you’ll have at least a few people who know, like, and trust you.

Leverage this to turn them into paying clients or work for free for a testimonial.

Working with your first client will teach you what challenges you’ll need to solve. Become relentless with figuring it out. Once you do, create repeatable systems and frameworks.

5. Become obsessed with getting results for your clients.

Many beginners in freelance copywriting think they need to stay busy and crank out content.

While this can make you money, I’d focus on becoming obsessed with results.

Results will give you two things:

  1. Confidence
  2. Social proof

Leverage this social proof to land more clients, deliver more value, and make more money.

Do this for a year and I guarantee you’ll be living a completely new life.

So, I hope this gives you a clear roadmap to execute on, my friend.

With that being said, have a kickass day. Much love.

Your Canadian friend,
