Best Copywriting Courses to Make $10,000+ Per Month

You don't have to go to college to learn a six-figure skill anymore. For that matter, a four-year university won't even teach you the skills you need to become a professional copywriter. And they definitely won't teach you how to monetize them.

There's an easier, better, and cheaper way to learn how to write copy. As a copywriter myself, I've compiled a list of the best online copywriting courses you can use to make $10,000 per month.

8 Best Copywriting Courses

The best copywriting course for your specific needs depends on a few things:

There are tons of great ones out there. The following represent courses across various niches. And everything on my list made the cut because it teaches you more than just writing skills.

1. Growth Ghosts — Best Social Media Copywriting Course}

I'm launching my Twitter copywriting course in early 2024. I can't give too many details just yet, but I can speak to its value.

  • 5+hours of video content
  • 25+ writing, branding, and growth modules
  • My Followers to Dollars, Viral Threads, and $10K Sales frameworks
  • AI prompts and how-tos to generate content in seconds
  • Additional training to market yourself as a freelancer and entrepreneur
  • A P&L calculator and copywriting contract templates
  • A community Discord server where I (and others who make >$10K on Twitter) answer your questions, share information, and help you strategize.

What sets my course apart from most in the copywriting space is its well-roundedness. I don't just teach you how to write social media posts.

I show you...

  • all my secrets to growing on Twitter, which you can use to bolster your own personal brand
  • the sales skills you need to actually land copywriting clients
  • the modern tools today's copywriters use to create their work product in less time
  • the documents you need to run an organized and efficient operation.

When you graduate college, you realize it taught you nothing about the real world. This course is the opposite — I will only teach you about the real world.

2. Copyblogger Academy — Best Digital Copywriting Course

For years, Copyblogger CEO Tim Stoddart has preached the importance of the 'content entrepreneur' — a hybrid between a true professional and someone with business savvy.

Today, that's what every copywriter needs. If all you have is writing skills, you're shooting yourself in the foot.

With Copyblogger Academy, Stodzy and his team have put together an insane offer, including access to $2,000+ worth of foundational lessons:

  • His 12-part training, Content Marketing Mastery, where he breaks down the Copyblogger Method step-by-step.
  • His 5-day, intensive Content Marketing Bootcamp, which offers ready-to-use templates that land traffic, build an engaged audience, and nurture them to buy.
  • His Creative Foundations course, which
  • Dozens of modules on how to create a content strategy, use data to understand analytics and conversions, and build, engage, and segment an online audience.
  • Additional modules on SEO, conversion copywriting principles, and
  • Access to a private communication channel with other Copyblogger Academy students
  • One-on-one coaching
  • Copywriting Masterclass presentations
  • A direct “lifeline” to the Copyblogger team
  • New modules and copywriting training added on a continuous basis

For freelance copywriters and solopreneurs who use copywriting as a revenue driver, Copyblogger Academy is the most comprehensive course on the market.

Price: $449 per year (set to increase at a time TBD)

3. The RMBC Method — Best Direct Response Copywriting Course

RMBC stands for Research, Mechanism, Brief, and Copy. Stefan Georgi's RMBC Method course teaches you everything about sales copy and landing pages from one of the best direct response copywriters in the world.

When you join Georgi and his team, you get:

  • Fundamentals that apply to all types of copywriting, including email, Facebook Ads, and web pages
  • 10 core modules that break down his exact framework for sales pages, from the lead statement to the money-making CTA
  • Real-world examples from dozens of niches
  • Templates and frameworks for attention-grabbing leads, high-converting headlines, subject lines, and ad creatives
  • 20 bonus modules featuring insights from other highly successful copywriters
  • Access to a private Facebook Group for peer-to-peer networking

Stefan Georgi's Copy Accelerator is another fantastic choice if you're a serious marketer. But it's private and costs $35,400 per year (you have to contact sales to find that — I'm saving you the time here). If you're a copywriter building funnels, his RMBC Method course is much more within reach.

Price: $997

4. HubSpot Academy — Best Free Copywriting Course for Beginners

If you're not sure about getting into copywriting, you can test the waters with HubSpot Academy. It's not exactly a specialist copywriting course (more of a comprehensive resource), but I recommend it to beginners because it's free and covers the basics. Plus, you can use it to explore other types of marketing.

With HubSpot Academy's free subscription, you'll get:

  • Dozens of niche copywriting courses — content marketing, SEO copywriting, email marketing, and contextual marketing, to name a few
  • Lessons on using HubSpot's proprietary marketing software (a transferrable skill to an agency or your own copywriting business).
  • 100+ hours of video content
  • Exercises and quizzes to test your knowledge
  • Certifications upon completion
  • Access to courses other than copywriting, which will help you build the entire suite of marketing skills you need to be a successful copywriter

If you're a beginner, I'd say to stop what you're doing right now and head to HubSpot Academy. Even if you're not interested in copywriting, they have courses for marketing professionals of any level.

And…if I’m being completely honest, you can probably make $10,000/month from using these resources and learning by doing.

Price: Free

5. SEO Copywriting Certification — Best SEO Copywriting Course

There's a lot more to SEO copywriting than just inserting target keywords in your content. That's why I recommend this SEO Copywriting Certification course. It covers the basics of SEO copywriting and pulls it all together with some of the most advanced techniques for maximizing search engine rankings.

  • Introduction to writing sales-driven SEO copy
  • Keyword research using popular tools like SEMrush, Ahrefs, and Moz Keyword Explorer
  • Copywriting best practices for on-page SEO
  • How to track results (and what tools you can use)
  • Creating content that ranks higher in Google's featured snippets
  • Writing product descriptions that rank high in Google Shopping and Amazon searches
  • Dozens of hours of exclusive video content
  • Insights on how to make money copywriting
  • An exclusive VIP community

In this day and age, you simply cannot run a freelance SEO copywriting business without knowing the basics of technical SEO. This is one of the few SEO writing courses that truly goes above and beyond.

Price: $995

6. The Copy Cure — Best Hands-On Copywriting Course

Marie Forleo is a copywriting wizard. She put her heart and soul into The Copy Cure, and it shows.

The big challenge with teaching copywriting is it's abstract. You can teach best practices, but discovering which words sell and why is ultimately an individual journey.

The Copy Cure is the closest thing to hands-on mentoring you'll get without paying for or finding a copywriting mentor.

With The Copy Cure, you receive:

  • Step-by-step video training
  • Helpful exercises that improve your skills immediately
  • Templates, prompts, and formulas, all done for you
  • Insights on how to find your own voice and write like a human
  • Critique workshops and real-time feedback
  • Live coaching calls and Q&As from Marie and her partner themselves
  • 8 additional copywriting masterclasses with guest features

If you haven't quite gotten the hang of copywriting and need a little more guidance, The Copy Cure is well worth the investment.

Price: $1,499 or 10 monthly payments of $169

7. Newsletter Creators — Best Email Copywriting Course

Newsletters are one of the best ways to make money as a copywriter. And, if you know how to write them, you can sell the service to others as a ghostwriter.

Newsletter Creators is a rock-solid course that teaches you everything about writing for an email list. I especially love that it's tailored to online entrepreneurs and service providers.

With Newsletter Creators, you learn how to:

  • Set up a newsletter, choose a name, format it, and determine publishing frequency for maximum engagement
  • Publish with consistency, decide who to feature, what content to cover, and how to summarize articles/repurpose content
  • Find and capitalize on your target audience
  • Create lead magnets (using copy, of course!), optimize signup pages, and write welcome emails
  • Grow your list and automate everything to scale subscriber growth while you sleep
  • Repurpose your newsletter content, run cross-promos, launch referral programs and giveaways, and other free/paid growth tactics
  • Leverage other monetization strategies like affiliate marketing and paid subscriptions to maximize the impact of your growing audience

From start to finish, you'll be hard-pressed to find a better business-oriented email newsletter course.

Price: $297

8. Content OS — Best Content Creation Course

You might not have a copywriting career specifically. But there's a 100% chance you need it for your own business.

Even if you don't want to make six figures as a copywriter, it's still the most valuable skill you can learn.

Justin Welsh built several income streams as a solopreneur and amassed over 1 million followers across LinkedIn, Twitter, his blog, and his newsletter, The Sunday Solopreneur. His Content OS course covers:

  • How to build and engage a large audience on social media
  • Copywriting basics, including structure, storytelling, and voice
  • Writing content that resonates with your target audience
  • How to repurpose existing content for different platforms
  • A multi-step system for writing a high-quality newsletter and publishing 6-12 pieces of quality LinkedIn and Twitter content every week
  • Templatizing your own content (not just using someone else's templates)
  • Distributing your content with the ideal (low-cost) tech stack
  • Tips on using social media analytics to drive better results and conversions

Justin's own copywriting skills have helped him build a large and loyal following. Plus, he's genuinely passionate about helping other solopreneurs grow their businesses through quality.

Price: $150

Are copywriting courses worth it?

Some courses cost well into the thousands. On the surface, that seems like a lot of money for online training. But when you consider what you're getting in return, copywriting courses are definitely worth it.

  • You'll learn from the best. Most copywriting courses are taught by experienced and successful copywriters who have successfully done exactly what you're trying to do (and then some).
  • You'll save time. When you're trying to figure it all out, you'll make mistakes that cost you several months and thousands in missed opportunities. A copywriting course helps you skip the first few steps and land on the money faster.
  • You'll join a community. Plenty of courses include a Discord, Slack, or Telegram group exclusive to their students. With everyone sharing their own information and motivating you with their wins, your course's value increases exponentially.
  • It’ll keep you accountable. Sinking money into something is the best way to light the fire under your a$$. You’ll immediately start working to recoup that ROI.
  • It's more helpful than a 4-year university. Majoring in digital marketing at a four-year college is between 6 and 25 times as costly as a $2,500 course. And, while you might learn marketing and branding fundamentals, you won't learn targeted copywriting skills from a pro. College debt or a comparatively small one-time investment. You decide.

"I can just learn for free online…"

Could you really, though?

There's hidden value in paid information. When you purchase someone's course, you have them in your corner. When you read their free content, you don't have a face.

I had ~$8,000 in my bank account when I spent ~$6,000 on Dan Koe's social media monetization course.

Crazy? Perhaps...

But I was a complete nobody at the time. And all of a sudden, I was chatting with a renowned Twitter veteran on the regular.

Now, I have more than 250K followers on Twitter and run a ghostwriting agency to grow others' accounts. I can tell you with 100% certainty that the online course purchase wasn't just monumental. It was the turning point.

I’m launching my course soon. At the moment, I’m not accepting applications for my Growth Ghost copywriting training cohort. In the meantime, sign up for my newsletter for everything about copywriting and business ownership.
