And when you join CopyHour, you get exclusive access to a private Facebook Group of all those students — where you can ask questions, post daily updates for accountability, and make sure you’re staying on track.
Proven Sales Copy
The Infamous Dropbox Swipe File
It’s “infamous” because it’s HUGE and hasn’t stopped growing.Almost no copywriter writes from scratch.Instead, nearly every piece of copy they write starts by looking at a swipe file… and, well, swiping its structure and theme.When I say that the most successful copy is extremely formulaic, I’m not joking. Don’t make this harder on yourself. It’s NORMAL to use other copy to write your own copy.When you join CopyHour, you get immediate access to my Dropbox swipe file of literally thousands of proven ads.This is something you’ll hold onto your entire career.

I’ve interviewed a whole lot of copywriters over the years including…
