Q: Is writing really something that can be taught?
A: Yes, absolutely. There’s a misconception about writing, where people think that you need to be magically inspired in order to write something good. The truth is that if you know what you’re doing, you can write consistently good stuff, even when you aren’t feeling inspired. In fact, some of my most successful posts on major blogs were written when I wasn’t feeling the least bit inspired, but just committed to a deadline and just had to get it done!
Q: Don’t you need relationships to guest post on big blogs?
A: No, in most cases you absolutely don’t. It’s true that I had a relationship with Copyblogger before my guest post there, but almost all of my guest posts have been on blogs that I had no contact with before I reached out to them about guest posting there. It’s all about having the right approach and pitching the right kind of post, and that’s something that you can learn how to do.
Q: Can you get good at writing without years of practice?
A: You may not be able to write the great American novel, but I can pretty much guarantee that if you follow my process, you will be able to write solid, strong posts in a very short amount of time. Case in point – my friend Matt, who had never written much before (English isn’t even his first language!). He landed a guest post spot on the first major blog that he approached, and his guest post was good enough to get over 500 tweets and over 700 Facebook shares!
Q: How can I be sure that I won’t run out of things to write about?
A: There is never a shortage of stuff to write about, and coming up with ideas for new posts is something that I will teach you how to do. Don’t worry, it’s probably a lot easier than you think!
Q: When will I receive the lessons?
A: You’ll get the first lesson within minutes of signing up, so you can start learning right away. The lessons are then delivered on a weekly basis, until you have access to all of the content.
Q: What if I’m busy when a lesson comes out?
A: Each lesson will be delivered via pre-recorded video, that you will receive a link to. That means everything is recorded, and you can watch it whenever you want, with plenty of time to do your homework and actually write in between videos. And you get lifetime access, so you can take your time!
Q: I’m building my business on the side! What kind of time commitment will this require?
A: Probably a lot less than you think! If you can budget 3-4 hours per week for four weeks, then you should be good to go.
Q: Is there a guarantee? What if I’m not satisfied?
A: Yep – no questions asked, if you aren’t happy with what you get, you have 2 weeks to say so, and get your money back. If you aren’t 100% thrilled with what I teach you, I don’t want your money.
