Dream come true: I’m published on Copyhackers

by | Jul 1, 2022

It’s surreal alright.

I’ve been on the Copyhackers / Joanna Wiebe’s mailing list for years. 

I’ve read emails about Joanna’s background, about conversion copywriting, about success stories Copyhackers has been part of… 

And I’ve read emails that have sent me over to their blog, where I’ve come away with the impression that “these Copyhackers people know their shizzle.” (A word I’ve never used before, but let’s go with it.)

Yesterday, I read a Copyhackers email that was about… me.

Well, specifically, it was about an article I wrote. A few weeks ago I pitched my article to Copyhackers, and (wonder of wonders) they accepted

Yesterday that article went live. 

And my business idol, the person whose wisdom I quote at least 14 times a day (Frank’ll tell you it’s more like 26), and the type of copywriter I hope to turn into when I grow up…

Yep. The Joanna Wiebe wrote an email about something I’d written.

She described it like this:

This is the story of how one introverted introvert overcame her fear to run customer interviews that drummed up badass voice-of-customer data for her client’s copy

Go on. Click that link. ⬆️ It’d make me so happy. 

You’ll find out about:

  • Why I made myself interview strangers (introvert nightmare!) instead of comfortably hiding behind a survey. 
  • How you can feel stronger going into your next customer interview (a lot of people have told me they feel more confident after reading my article).
  • What I did (and hope to change) that made my first interviewee’s smile falter. 
  • The question I just happened to tack on at the end that led to interview gold.
  • Why us introverts can rest assured we’re naturally equipped with brilliant interview skills.  

And after you’re done reading Why fighting through my fear of customer interviews was 918% worth it. would you show it some love? 

Share it on LinkedIn and be sure to tag me. That’d make my day. 🙏🏼 (And, help boost my street cred as a guest author.)  

BTW — are we connected on LinkedIn? We should be. I’m @marcicornett

Now, after all this excitement, I’m off for some much needed introvert quiet time. With a huge smile on my face.
