By the end of this 5-part course, you’ll be able to:

PLUS – you’ll get a 30-day “All Access Pass” to the Copy Chief Community Forum. There you’ll have seasoned freelance copywriters answering your questions, giving you feedback on your work, and holding you accountable while you walk through this proven system step-by-step. You’ll be building a network of talented “battle buddies” – backing you and helping make the process FUN as you join an active community of ambitious and creative freelancers. There’s a reason our motto is “Nobody Writes Alone.” You’ll have to put in the time and effort of course, but thanks to this private community, I promise we’ll have a heck of a great time doing it! In fact, I JUST received this message from one of our Escape Velocity students:

In Escape Velocity, I got a client that nearly replaced my monthly corporate salary. The difference is I achieved it working about 20 hours a week, instead of 60 hours a week like I did at my corporate job!

-Anna Iveson

My first client came directly from Escape Velocity. He said he liked the posts and feedback I was giving, and he wanted to hire me. That one job paid for Escape Velocity!

-Josh Bowen

I get messages every week from freelancers like Jess telling they’ve landed fantastic copy clients by using what they learned in Escape Velocity.

Am I bragging a bit?

Absolutely!

I couldn’t be prouder of my students and what they’ve achieved. They’ve proven the model and gotten paid great money to confidently deliver great work to clients they love working with.

Many of them are now their own boss with their own full-time business. Others have chosen to work remotely for great companies. Some are working from home so they can watch their kids grow up. Others are traveling the world with other Copy Chief members as a band of nomadic copywriters.

That’s the beauty of freelancing – YOU call the shots!

Now it’s your turn.

The EV group has been such an inspiration and motivation. There’s so much spirit and drive here. Not to mention the feedback, ideas and wealth of talent that helps me grow as a copywriter. I didn’t know how to balance my life before EV. Now I feel like I have a plan. EV helped me narrow down a speciality so I can focus my learning and practice. I figured out through EV how to leverage my previous experience to create real value for my own freelance business and the skills I offer my clients.

Here’s how it works…

Over five training sessions, I’ll guide you to…

1. Determining your copywriting specialty

The fastest way to get up and running with new clients as a freelancer is to choose a specialty and put yourself in the jet stream of clients ready to hire copywriters right now.

In Session 1 I’ll show you how to use your existing knowledge to choose an in-demand specialty that puts you at a massive advantage over anyone calling themselves simply a “copywriter.”

2. Choose and develop your #1 “Money Skill”

In Session 2, you’ll match your specialty with a copywriting skill that’s in high demand with clients across the most active niches right now (like email copy, Facebook ads, and pre-sell landing pages).

3. Price and packaging your services to sell

In Session 3 you will price and package up the samples you create so your client has everything they need to make hiring you an easy choice.

4. Finding your ideal clients and pitching them your services

In Session 4 we’ll learn how to find clients who desperately need your money skill and meet are willing to pay good money for it. We’ll walk you through the outreach process to get in front of them, and put together a professional proposal that positions you as a respected, expert professional.

5. Connecting with your best clients and closing the deal

In Session 5 you’ll meet freelancers who recently launched their own careers through my flagship program, Real Free Life, and are now commanding top dollar with their specialties. Some have become so successful in a short time they are no longer accepting new clients because their calendars are completely booked. You’ll get the step-by-step playbook for what to say, and what not to say to close the deal with new clients.

After every training session, you’ll complete tactical assignments designed to help you create real, valuable assets for your freelancing business.
"The community at Copy Chief and Escape Velocity are both amazing and nurturing and unselfish. Qualities that are often promised, but rarely delivered.

I'm new to copywriting, but have always been self-employed. It was refreshing to hear about focusing on the Money Skills, rather than a kind of amorphous copying copy approach to success.

A big takeaway for me was ditching the dozens of copy advisors in my Inbox, realizing that everything that I need is right here.

Thank you for this program and amazing community. This place that feels like home."

“There is no better place to be, and no better people to be around for this journey, than Copy Chief, Escape Velocity, and everyone here.”

- Fotis Chatzinicolaou

“I’ve purchased other freelancing courses in the past and my aha moment with Escape Velocity was that I don’t need to write long-form sales letters. I can start with my specialty (email) and still earn good money.”

- Tom Hammaker

“I tested your approach to cold email proposals a few hours ago and got one response from a media buyer already. And I only contacted 5 people. My mind is blown.”

What’s It Cost?

The enrollment fee for Escape Velocity is $2000. Limited Time Offer $1490

That includes lifetime access to the lessons and resources in your personal training dashboard, the real-world homework assignments, and a 30-day “all access pass” to the Copy Chief Community.

In the Community forum you’ll get ongoing accountability and coaching from working pros to help you through the program.

To be clear, this program is not for everyone.

I want to make sure you’re investing in the program for the right reasons.

A lot of times I speak to freelancers who aren’t ready to invest in themselves and their business. They want to wait until they ALREADY have clients.

But the way I see it, you’ve got 2 options:

Option #1

You can go off on your own and keep doing what you've been doing so far, hoping it all clicks for you without any guidance...

And in my 14+ years in the biz, I've seen freelancers take as long as 7 years to land a good client. Not for lack of effort, of course. But just because they’re repeating the same stuff that didn't work for them, thinking it'll "work out eventually.”

Or you can take...

Option #2

Having a seasoned guide lead you step-by-step through a proven system that’s worked for thousands of freelancers in the past.

If you’re committed to making this a priority in your life, then Escape Velocity can shave years off the typical learning curve to landing your first clients and owning your new life as a professional copywriter. It can help you shortcut that huge, difficult process.

But...

Only if you’re ready to take the leap and truly commit to making your freelance skills work for you.

That’s why Escape Velocity is made for go-getters. People who “get it” and who are truly ready to commit and make their freelance business a success. Is that you?

The feedback inside of Escape Velocity was so helpful. I learned to feel confident in what I knew instead of worrying about what I didn’t know. It eliminated a lot of my imposter syndrome. Plus, I don’t worry about getting clients anymore. What I learned inside Escape Velocity, stacked on top of the support this network gives each other, I know I’ll always be able to get work. When prospecting, I’m sending out fewer inquiries than I used to, but they are so much better, and they get results.
- Jason Hakes
Escape Velocity is brilliant. Everything I’m learning is important – a lot of it is usually only learned with painful trial and error.I know the answers I’m learning are THE answers. It's like dress rehearsal is over, and you're building your future life. Since starting EV, I've been asked for a portfolio from a local agency and been approached for a few new jobs. And I'm handling it much, much better.

"With Escape Velocity, I shifted from finding out about copy, (listening to podcasts, reading books, hoarding emails). – To writing and getting feedback. I also found clarity – Choosing one money skill and narrowing my focus helped me a lot. Having great teachers was the fuel, but seeing everybody get their feet wet was just as inspiring."

"I just wanted to tell you that Copy Chief & Escape Velocity have been life-changing for me. I am putting in my 2 weeks notice today - bye bye boring day job!"

"This was the kick in the pants I needed! I joined Escape Velocity for the accountability, the coaching, and the “workshop” aspect. Being able to have a classroom of people learning all at the same time made for a far better experience than other online courses. The most valuable thing I gained from this course was the belief that making a well-paying career out of this was actually possible. I’ve put in a lot of work to try to make that psychological shift. Going through Escape Velocity helped me finally succeed in changing that belief. I’ve actually raised my prices in my other field as a result. Also, having a network is paramount; having people who truly understand what you’re going through and what your daily day is like makes all the difference. Having people around you who get it is irreplaceable. Thank you for being such amazing coaches and teachers. I’m excited to see how we all continue to evolve over the rest of the year!"

Frequently Asked Questions About Escape Velocity

Escape Velocity is designed for people who want to launch a freelance copy career from scratch. We’ll learn how to position ourselves as more than just “copywriters,” package and price our services, find clients who are desperate for our specific skills, pitch and sell our services like a pro, and legitimize our business. 
 
A lot of times I speak to freelancers who aren’t ready to invest in themselves and their business. 
 
They want to wait until they ALREADY have clients to invest. But I’ve seen freelancers take 7, even 10 years to get their first real client. And I know that Escape Velocity can help you shortcut that huge, difficult process. 
 
But I understand that sometimes getting what you ask for is SCARY. So if someone isn’t ready to commit to truly making their freelance business work for them, then I advise them to wait until they’re ready to fully commit. 
 
If you’re not sure if this is right for you, then my advice is to take advantage of our 30-day, 100% money-back guarantee described above.

The program is self-paced, but we recommend doing at least 1 lesson per week, including the homework assignments. You’ll have lifetime access to the lessons and course material in your personal Training Dashboard.

This is a self-directed course, and you’ll have 30-days access to the Copy Chief Community where you can get personal help from working pros. 
 
Go through the trainings at your own pace, then jump into our live study groups to get feedback on your work, and help implementing what you’re learning.
 
While the program was only available twice per year in the past, now you can move through the entire 5-part training course at your own pace. 
 
You’ll get immediate access to all 5 in-depth training lessons, robust FAQ videos to answer all your questions, a detailed coaching guide to give you extra support, and a proven plan that makes it easy to launch a freelance career from scratch. 
 
PLUS – for a full 30 days, you’ll have unlimited access to the private “Escape Velocity Coaching Club” where you’ll get feedback on your work, and expert help implementing what you’re learning.

Plan to set aside 3-5 hours per week for the program. The lessons are around 90 minutes, and you’ll have weekly homework assignments to complete. You’ll also want to spend time in the community asking questions and learning from your fellow students.

I often meet new freelancers who feel they’re not ready to invest in the program because they want to get clients FIRST. They want to have a steady stream of income before investing in themselves, their skills, and their business.

I’ve also seen freelancers attend the same copywriting conferences for 3, 5, even 10 years and STILL not land those clients. I can say with confidence that Escape Velocity will help you shortcut that huge, tough process.

As someone who’s been in that position before, and has now coached thousands of freelancers out of that same position, I can tell you with confidence that it’s the other way around.
I know it looks bleak now, but if you’ll let me mentor you a little here…

… I can see around the corner that you’re still walking up to. I know that you don’t know what’s on the other side, and I have been there.

My advice is to make decisions and invest based on the future freelancer version of yourself…
… not the limited version of where you are right now.

Because if you join me in Escape Velocity, then in 10 weeks you will be able to call yourself a proven freelancer. You will be a much more evolved freelancer version of yourself in less than 90 days.

I can’t promise you success. But if you join me in Escape Velocity I can promise that I will be there with you every step of the way.

I often get students from other countries who have learned English as a second language. In my experience, while it may take you a little longer to learn the basics…

… being a non-native English speaker actually gives you an advantage over other writers!
Native speakers often overwrite and over complicate their copy. Lucky for you that you haven’t developed that bad habit throughout your lifetime.

I like to use Evaldo Albuquerque as a great example of this. Evaldo is from Brazil and came to the United States and learned English as a second language. He’s now the head copywriter for one of the biggest financial publishers in the world, and is one of the highest paid copywriters in the entire country.

Got more questions about Escape Velocity? Email our team at support [at] copychief.com if you need help.

Otherwise, give yourself permission to stop waiting and start proving that you can get paid to be a professional copywriter.

See you on the inside.

I often meet new freelancers who feel they’re not ready to invest in the program because they want to get clients FIRST. They want to have a steady stream of income before investing in themselves, their skills, and their business.

I’ve also seen freelancers attend the same copywriting conferences for 3, 5, even 10 years and STILL not land those clients. I can say with confidence that Escape Velocity will help you shortcut that huge, tough process.

As someone who’s been in that position before, and has now coached thousands of freelancers out of that same position, I can tell you with confidence that it’s the other way around.
I know it looks bleak now, but if you’ll let me mentor you a little here…

… I can see around the corner that you’re still walking up to. I know that you don’t know what’s on the other side, and I have been there.

My advice is to make decisions and invest based on the future freelancer version of yourself…
… not the limited version of where you are right now.

Because if you join me in Escape Velocity, then in 10 weeks you will be able to call yourself a proven freelancer. You will be a much more evolved freelancer version of yourself in less than 90 days.

I can’t promise you success. But if you join me in Escape Velocity I can promise that I will be there with you every step of the way.

I often get students from other countries who have learned English as a second language. In my experience, while it may take you a little longer to learn the basics…

… being a non-native English speaker actually gives you an advantage over other writers!
Native speakers often overwrite and over complicate their copy. Lucky for you that you haven’t developed that bad habit throughout your lifetime.

I like to use Evaldo Albuquerque as a great example of this. Evaldo is from Brazil and came to the United States and learned English as a second language. He’s now the head copywriter for one of the biggest financial publishers in the world, and is one of the highest paid copywriters in the entire country.

See you on the inside.

"My biggest takeaway from Escape Velocity is how to write these copywriting “money skills” It’s less daunting than a sales page, much easier to specialize, and the perfect step-one service to offer clients. Before EV I didn’t know much about the money skills, but now I enjoy writing them! I also now stay consistent with publishing authority content every week and writing copy every day. EV showed me how important it is to “put in the reps” and not just stay in the knowledge and learning phase."

"Here’s what I took away from Escape Velocity:

1. Consistency/process is the key to getting Momentum. With limited time and energy, 30 minutes in the calendar beats random motivation every time (duh!). Escape Velocity has forced me to figure my process out.

2. The power of the right people/community. Before EV, I was too scared to ask questions or comment on anything in the forum. I've done a lot of the training but never posted any work for critique. Well after watching fellow Escape Velocity members, Rachel, and Kevin in action, my perspective has changed. I've realized that engaging with the right people and getting useful feedback can be like steroids for your skills and momentum. Moving forward I will be engaging way more in the Copychief community, even as a total beginner!

3. Backstage Pricing and confidence. What happens if they don't want your package of 5 ads? Or the projects shifts from email to facebook? How do you price it out and have the confidence to stick with your numbers? Backstage pricing has given me the framework to figure out the right pricing even if the clients needs shift. It's also given me the ability to have confidence in the pitch.

Thank you for this amazing program! Looking forward to going through it again, and again, and again!"
