Reality Blog: A Scooby-Doo Copywriting Career

July 22, 2020 | By Curtis Dennis | 2 Comments

I wish my present-day Saturday mornings were more like the Saturdays I remember as a kid. Those days, the most important thing was to grab the new cereal box and plant ourselves in front of the TV.

My favorite was the original Scooby-Doo! cartoon. To this day, I still refer to feeding any of our pets as “Time for a Scooby snack!”

But seriously, what in the world does Scooby-Doo have to do with my copywriting career? Well, to quote Freddie, “Looks like we’ve got another mystery on our hands.”

And I’m hoping solving that mystery gives you some ideas for expanding your business or taking some steps toward your freelance goals.

  • Thanks Curtis, for an interesting article. I keep going forward with copywriting and then going backward, saying “Can I really do this?” I’ve spent tens of thousands of $ – almost all to AWAI – to buy copywriting courses. Of course, just buying them doesn’t help one bit. I have to actually read and listen to the training, take notes, do it again and again, until I have a “working” knowledge of it.

    And then go find some paying clients. I know I can do it.

    So again Curtis, thanks for the good “push.” I need it!

    • Hi Steve, sounds like we have traveled similar paths. I purchased my first AWAI program back in 2007 ready to hit the ground running. And over the next ten years, I assembled a collection of programs from AWAI and others.

      The pandemic was my wake up call since my day job as a commercial carpenter wasn’t going to earn me any money for the next few months.

      I am certain that you will be successful too, just keep plugging away on the lessons and practice, practice, practice.
