Getting Started with CopyEffect

Hi! I’m Josh Harris, Co-Founder of CopyEffect. If you’re new to the world of online business, or want to learn how to create killer content that your readers will love, then this page is for you! We want to help you get started with your journey, so here we’ve included some of our best tips and resources. Whether you’re ready to take the plunge or are still making plans, it’s a privilege to be here for you every step of the way!

If this is your first time here, there’s a lot of content to go through, so we’ve packaged up the highlights nice and neatly so you can hit the ground running! So we can get to know each other a little better, we’ll start by sharing our mission with you.

Our Mission

Unlike so many “experts” in the online business community, we’re not about taking shortcuts and chasing fast cash. We’re here to serve people who want to build rock-solid online businesses that stand the test of time.

Content IS king. We have entered a new era in the world of online business. Content quality matters, now more than ever, and if you want to stay competitive and relevant in this fast-paced game you’ve got to know what works, and what doesn’t.

We have A LOT of fun here, but we take our job of providing you with great content and opportunities very seriously. We are a tight knit community, and we look out for one-another.

The CopyEffect Strategy

So how does it work?

At CopyEffect we’re all about working hard, playing hard, and chasing BIG dreams. Through the collective experience of our team and countless hours of research we have developed what we believe to be the most effective content marking strategies available anywhere in the world.

We’ll teach you how to deliver incredible value through your products and services and package up your content in a way that really resonates with your customers. Through our blog and newsletter you’ll learn cutting edge marketing techniques and psychology, so that you’ll be able to develop deep connections with your readers that keep them coming back year after year..

There’s more to us than content though. We believe that life’s too short to spend it wasting away in a soul-sucking desk job. We want to help you create a location independent business so that you’re free to live where and how you see fit. We’ll help you isolate the things that your passionate about, and incorporate that passion into your business. It IS possible to have your cake and eat it too. You can build a business that you’re excited to wake up to every morning, people around the world are doing it every day!

Some of our group have started their online businesses while still working a 9-5 job. Some have packed up to travel abroad and then built their business as an afterthought. Many have decided leverage their skills or talents and build businesses that teach other people things.

Bottom line, it doesn’t matter what your current conditions or circumstances are, if you’ve got the drive and determination then you CAN achieve your goals, and we can show you how!

Is CopyEffect for ME?

CopyEffect is not a get-rich-quick scheme. We are not about chasing loopholes or fast-cash. We believe in providing massive value, and being rewarded for it in the long run.

There is nothing overly “easy” about what we do here. People who are lazy and unmotivated need not proceed any further. They will not succeed. We are here to teach and inspire, but we are also here to motivate and lead. At times we will challenge you, and it will be up to you to decide if you have what it takes to succeed.

Although the end result is having a business that requires as much or as little attention as you want to give it, getting there is no picnic. Some people simply aren’t built for adversity. They crumble and give up at the first hurdle, or quickly tire out and throw in the towel before they have time to see results.

That’s totally fine! We’re not here for that type of people. They will keep their boring office jobs for the next 30-40 years. They will save up a meager sum for retirement (if any) that will barely get them by. Then they will waste away in their golden years watching re-runs of Wheel of Fortune and pounding hot toddies to take the edge off of the absolute lack of purpose and meaning in their lives.

***TIP: If that type of life sounds good to you, please do me a favor…

1)Please remove any hats or glasses that you’re currently wearing.

2)Next, kindly unplug any cables from the screen you are reading this on, and neatly put them away.

3)Now, firmly grasp the corners of your electronic device with both hands, and make it punch you in the fucking face! 

Thats no way to live! Not when there is an incredible, amazing, beautiful world out there full of opportunities waiting for YOU! All you have to do is be willing to put in the work and walk through a little fear!

If you’re still reading this, then you have come to the right place my friend. I know that you’re the type of person who doesn’t back down from a challenge. You recognize that life is short, and you have some important shit to do while you’re here. You’re not willing to trade in any more of your precious time doing work that you don’t like at a job that isn’t fulfilling.

You want freedom. You want purpose. You want to do work that you’re excited and passionate about, and live an amazing and adventurous life. You’re the type who is self-motivated and willing to step outside your comfort zone.

We’re here for people like YOU, because we are like you.
