Nigeria

Q2. How did you discover copywriting?

I discovered copywriting when I was unemployed after getting my PhD. I was in mad of looking for lecturing job but was highly disappointed. I was told by my then HOD that “appointment in the university now is from above. It depends on who you know” I being an introvert don’t know what to do. And I don’t have someone at Asorock. No gods-father or gods-mother to help me out. At this time things were very difficult for me. I find it very difficult to take care of myself and my family.It became so glaring to me that getting a job was difficult because I don’t have the connection .Not that I don’t have the capacity.Even some of my friends that are supposed to help me capitalised on my predicament and exploit me. Collected some cash from me in the name of helping me to get job but all ended up promise upon promise.It was at this point that I started looking for alternative solution to my problem. I was deepenly buried in Internet in search of alternative solution to my financial woes. It was that time that I realized that I was suffering from financial problem and not job problem. It was as a result of this that I discovered copywriting as one of the high income skill where I can write emails, sales letters, ad copy and landing pages for foreign clients and earn in dollars. Without traveling to anywhere. Rights there in my home. I enjoy my freedom. Work when I want and at my own pace and earn more than some professors
