Hi, I’m Jacob 🙂
If you clicked on this page, it’s probably because you’re wondering “is this guy legit?”. To be honest, I’m still trying to figure that out myself, but here’s some numbers:
- The most money I’ve made for a client in 9 months is $415k net (case study here).
- A blog post I wrote for one client brought in over $100k worth of business.
- I currently rank #5 in Google for “copywriter” (see for yourself).
- I made around $80k net my first year as a fulltime freelancer, $130k the next year, and $220k the year after that (follow my blueprint).
I’m an accounting grad from the Bay Area who somehow landed in copywriting and content strategy. I love it, so I have that going for me, which is nice.
I got my start in direct sales, which I used to pay my way through college. To be honest, I hated it, but I was a damn good salesman, and it’s hard to call it quits when you’re doing as much as $3k per week as a formerly broke college student.
With school finished and paid for, I said bye to sales and jumped into online marketing. I discovered the world of copywriting within the year and knew immediately it was the career path for me. I had always been a solid writer, so choosing a skillset that combined elements of both writing and sales seemed like a no-brainer.
I’ve been a freelance copywriter for 7 years now, and I’ve tried a lot of different things in that time period. After my freelancing income capped out around $20k per month, I explored content marketing, SEO services, affiliate marketing, and even building a small agency.
I’m currently on a 12-month journey to see if I can create and sell the best copywriter and freelance writer training online. Every month, I publish new, in-depth content on writing, marketing, and freelancing via my blog, I spend time helping established writers grow their freelancing businesses via my group Write Minds, and I work on putting together the internet’s best copywriting course, which will hopefully launch by the end of 2019.
