EP 24: How to become a real estate copywriter 

Podcasts on February 23, 2022

Discover how copywriting can help you turn your passion into profit.

Donna Webeck’s dream was to earn money by writing about real estate but with no experience in the sector, no background in writing, no contacts in the real estate industry, that dream seemed just that.  Until she took the plunge, did a short course in copywriting and now here she is 6 years later with a flourishing, thriving business writing real estate copy for some of the country’s top real estate agents, earning a six-figure income and having the flexibility and freedom to be there for her family and see them grow up. In her own words, she now has her dream job.
