Write Copy Like a Pro, Even When You Feel Like a Zombie

You can't wait for inspiration to strike, you just need to write

Before I started copywriting, I believed in the myth of the starving artist writer. I thought you had to wait in agony for an idea to peak, like a surfer waiting for a wave on a glassy sea. When that rare crest of inspiration came your way, then you must ride it for dear life, lest it be your last!

Then I became a copywriter. Writing was now my job- I had to show up and provide my copywriting services every single day, if I wanted to keep putting food on the table.

It didn’t matter if I woke up with brainpower of the walking dead, I had to write anyway and that writing had to sing for its supper. If it didn’t get results, I was out of a job and the cupboard stayed bare.

I quickly realised that while those bursts of creative inspiration are rare and real, you can’t rely on them to be a good writer.

All you need to rely on showing up and getting some solid systems in place.

That’s why every single professional copywriter has their go-to copywriting formulas.

I’m sure you’ve heard of AIDA (Attention, Interest, Desire, Action) and PAS (Problem, Agitation, Solution) right?

Copywriters use them because they work.

A good copywriting formula cuts through the information overload, the waffle and the guesswork - straight to the heart of what matters to your customer.

The result? Ideas and words that customers connect with, and want to act on.

My own go-to formula has served me faithfully for over a decade. I’ve used it to write 100,000s of words of web copy, emails, white papers, video scripts - you name it.

And now, I’d love to share it with you in an editable worksheet that easy on the eye. These 5-steps will easily cut your writing time in half and deliver far more powerful results.

Even if you don’t write for a living or consider yourself creative at all. The formula does the heavy lifting.

P.S. As Hemingway said "the first draft of anything is shit". Accept that and keep writing, keep moving and don’t quit.
