A Practical Exercise to Start Writing Copy Even if You’re a Complete Beginner

STEP 1:

STEP 2: Google around and see if you can find a course or a product in the niche you picked.

STEP 3: If there’s a sales page — congratulations! Go to STEP 4.

STEP 4: When you find a sales page (you can also use the emails you get) all you need to do is go through it.

STEP 5: Take your notes and use them to REWRITE the sales page (also works for emails).

STEP 6: Find out how to get in touch with the company whose page you just re-wrote. This could mean emailing support and asking to speak to a supervisor (and work your way up)

STEP 7: Send an email asking for permission to send a sample.
