That’s how much I made when I was just starting out trying to make this “make money online” thingy work.

There are 3 levers to pull to make money / get sales, in order of importance:
But wait a minute…
Where the heck is “copywriting”?
Surely that’s the most important factor!?
Someone has extreme stomach pain (Audience).
A famous doctor has the solution to solve the pain (Offer).
That someone knows such a doctor exists (Traffic).

If we have a yummy offer dialed in for the right audience, we can have the worst copy & it’ll still sell.
Even if we were to only write:
(i.e. no copywriting)
Many will still buy.
What ’bout traffic though?
Surely it has to be the most important part?
Using our e.g. above…
Even if only 10 folks (poor traffic) know about our offer, we’d still be able to sell to many of them.
Say we have 10k people (high traffic) who know about our offer…
But they don’t have stomach pain.
Will they buy?
Knowing these 3 levers can get us sales & make us money.
But if we wanna build a real business (instead of just “making money”)…
There are 2 more things to have in our toolkit:
- Copywriting skill

Build an email list so we own this asset & can send traffic at will to our offers.
No more at the mercy of social algorithms to send traffic to us.
Here’s how to build one:
