In today’s special BONUS podcast, Douglas Pew and I interview one of our certified copywriting students: Beth Schmeisl.

We talk to Beth about why she joined the certification program and how that helped her land a job with the Harmon Brothers. Beth also gives us some insight into what it takes to make a viral ad, and it’s not something you’d expect.



Tune in to discover…

([0:54]) What Beth has accomplished that even I haven’t done… yet!
([1:29]) How she started her copywriting journey. People tend to forget that you have to start somewhere before you can get anywhere.
([3:20]) The paper ceilings she broke through and how she almost denied herself the chance to succeed as a copywriter.
([6:30]) How she landed an amazing job with the Harmon Brothers! If you’ve seen the viral ads for Squatty Potty and Poo Pourri, you know who they are.
([8:04]) The persuasive tactic she used to convince the Harmon Brothers to hire her. HINT: She’s certified for a reason.
([11:04]) What makes up 80% of the challenge when writing. It’s probably not what you think.
([12:41]) All the cool people Beth has gotten to meet through her job. Who knew working could be so fun?!
([14:13]) What it feels like to be a rockstar copywriter. It’s not easy to put your creative image out into the world for interpretation, but the rewards can be tremendous.
([15:15]) The process Harmon Brothers use to complete a viral video ad script. Their “middle-of-nowhere” secret to removing all distractions in a distraction-filled world.
([22:05]) What Beth has to say to you about becoming a certified copywriter! Listen carefully… she knows what she’s talking about.
