What’s that purple badge mean? A Real Change Certification means when I write for you, you get a copywriter who knows how to connect, incorporating Sandi Krakowski’s system for building a HUGE business!
The badge represents A Real Change™ Copywriting Apprenticeship with Sandi Krakowski, an entrepreneur who’s built multi-million dollar businesses and now helps other small business owners do the same.
I personally trained under Sandi way back in 2012, and it’s been an experience that immeasurably improved my writing and business marketing skills.
The first time I took one of her classes in 2011, I knew I wanted to work with her on a higher level. “How can I learn more from this woman?” I wondered.
When she opened up the Copywriter’s Apprenticeship Program, I jumped. Thank goodness, too! I don’t think she’s ever offered something like it since.
Sandi first built a successful online kitchenware store when the web was in its infancy. Now she’s a social media master (check her out on Forbes and Entrepreneur) teaching others about online business practices that actually make money. From her, I learned about direct response copywriting, WordPress blogging, and social media. I still jump into classes she offers because she stays current with tools and trends, spends hundreds of thousands every month on testing ads, etc., and always provides a fun and entertaining wealth of knowledge.
Above all, there aren’t many copywriters who write better than Sandy. I spotted that the minute I found her online, and true to her authentic web presence, she makes a great coach!
Since I specialize in copywriting for business, A Real Change certification means I participated in regular, bi-weekly, one-on-one coaching calls where Sandi critiqued actual work I did for my clients. (Lucky clients, right?)
The program also included coaching calls with a small group of professional copywriters. There were just four of us so we got Sandi pretty much to ourselves. We honed our craft together and examined what “works” about everything from headlines, copy flow, word choices, structure, and persuasive elements that call readers to action. We even got together once in Chicago to mastermind together. Awesome!
Led by Miss Sandi, I felt like part an exclusive copywriting dream team. You can’t imagine how valuable it is to work together with other pros, picking apart articles, emails, and flyers for real clients! I’ve loved my copywriting “sisters” — we still keep in touch — and I’ve gained a landslide of knowledge from their input. You can see I’m in good company!
From a professional standpoint, I’m glad I had the experience of personally working with Sandi. She has a way of connecting without tricks, yet she teaches tried and true copywriting skills like that of the legends Dan Kennedy, Bill Glazer, Joe Sugarman, etc… without the hype.
If you know me, you know I’m big on connecting authentically with your ideal clients.
Writing copy that converts depends on connections:
- Connections between words and desires.
- Connections between customers and your team.
- Connections between your message and your products and services.
- Connections between what people want and what you offer.
If there’s a disconnect, then something smells fishy. You know what I’m talking about…
You don’t really trust the voice…You feel you’re being spoken down to…The copy feels “hype-y” or comes off as slightly unreal…The message doesn’t jibe with the offer…You can’t jump from one social media site to another and get a real sense of the company you’re dealing with… It’s just “not right” and you end up leaving for good.
After studying copywriting, you recognize where the gaps in trust occur, and you know how to do it differently.
After working with Sandi I’m a better writer with an understanding of what makes people tick — how to learn what that is for different people — and how to reach those people.
Whether you’re in direct marketing, online sales, online services, info-marketing, getting the word out about a startup, or building a web presence for your local business and using social media and content to get people to find you… I can help cut through all the crap. A Real Change certification means you’ve finally found someone knows the steps to take to help you get there fast. Yay!
