TCC Podcast #127: Showing up strategically with Pauline Longdon

Direct response copywriter Pauline Longdon shares her thoughts about showing up in a bigger way in the 127th episode of The Copywriter Club Podcast. What does she mean by that? It’s not enough any more to just show up. You need to be strategic about how, where, when and with whom you show up. And that’s just one of the many things we discussed with Pauline, Here’s a short list of some of the other topics we covered…
•  how she went from army nurse to up-and-coming copywriter
•  the impact that depression had on her—and how she dealt with it
•  how her experience as a nurse helped her develop the copywriter’s secret weapon
•  why she writes “emotional” direct response copy
•  why we should forget copy tricks and what to do instead to write more emotionally
•  what she did to accelerate her copywriting business
•  the worst thing a prospect can say to you (and why it doesn’t matter)
•  how she makes time for her own business
•  what she’s learned from her time in the world’s most exclusive copy training program
•  the must read book that copywriter should read
•  not just showing up but showing up strategically
•  how she optimizes—not manages—her time to get so much done
•  her unique—longer—take on the pomodoro technique
•  why Pauline invests in more than one copywriting group at the same time
•  what she’s focused on in the coming year

  • This was super inspiring…loved, loved Pauline’s chat with you guys. One of my favs…inspired me to what to join the underground…just not sure how…

    I thought it was awesome how she is inspired to write compassionate copy, and how she shared her story of PTSD and thoughts of suicide – an inpsiraton to so many…and her amazing ‘no excuses’ success
