Wanted: Copywriting Apprentice

WHO WE ARE: Dealmaker Wealth Society, LLC is a fast-moving startup founded by Carl Allen, and Adam Markley. 

We teach people how to become dealmakers so they can acquire the business of their dreams, and build wealth. 

Our mantra is, “Don’t start a business, buy one!”

It’s a secret truth that buying a business is better than starting a business as a path towards entrepreneurship.

Proof? 

Some famous entrepreneurs who bought businesses instead of starting one:

  1. Elon Musk bought Paypal when his own startup x.com was failing, then he exited Paypal when Ebay bought it for $1.5 billion, and Musk made $180 million from the exit. Elon also bought Tesla, co-founded by Martin Eberhard and Marc Tarpenning, then proceeded to scale that business to a market capitalization of $539 Billion as of December 2020.
  2. Gary Vaynerchuk took over his parent’s liquor store business then proceeded to scale that business from $3 million to $60 million through smart digital marketing. 
  3. Warby Parker’s co-founder Jeff Raider, along with Andy Katz-Mayfield, co-founded Harry’s, the subscription-based shaving startup, by raising $100 million dollars to acquire a razor manufacturing company in Germany, they then leveraged their experience to grow Harry’s into $70 million in annual revenue. 

Buying an existing business with customers, systems, employees, and infrastructure already in place is smarter than starting a business from scratch. It’s like running the last 300 meters of a 400-meter race, instead of starting from 0 meters, you get a head start from everyone else.

WHY WE EXIST

We believe entrepreneurs are the crazy ones that change industries, lives, and communities.  

And the fast path towards becoming an entrepreneur is to buy a business and become an Acquisition Entrepreneur through learning the art and science of dealmaking. 

Becoming a dealmaker changes lives because learning how to find, evaluate, finance, and close a deal to buy a business changes your frame of reference from just another 9-5 employee into a full-blown entrepreneur. It’s a huge mindset shift with big downstream effects. 

The way we teach dealmaking is through our flagship product Dealmaker CEO, it’s the only course in the market with over 50+ student success stories. 

Here’s what our students say of our material:

WHO WE’RE LOOKING FOR:

We’re looking for a conversion copywriting apprentice. Someone who is hungry to actually learn how to write legitimate direct-response/conversion copy, test it, and pivot to writing more copy when it fails to convert based on data-driven metrics.

Ideally, you know the basics of conversion copy, what makes a good headline, how to craft a lead, and how to put together a compelling and emotionally riveting story. All copy is a story being told, the better the story the more attention it garners and the more it converts.

If you’re chosen to be the 2020-2021 copywriting apprentice then here’s what to expect:

You’ll be part of launching copy into the “wild” every single week on Facebook, Youtube, and within our internal email lists that will impact the lives of people across the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia.

This will be hard work…and we expect you to learn fast, fail fast, and collaborate with your team to get things done.

  • Extreme ownership. A strong sense of ownership, with little necessity for supervision.
  • Willingness to fail fast, and get back up on your feet and keep moving forward.
  • Humility to admit mistakes, correct them, and move forward.


WHAT YOU MUST KNOW BEFORE APPLYING
:

Ideally, the conversion copywriting apprenticeship will last between January until the end of 2021, but in reality, two things will happen:

    1. The apprentice won’t make the effort needed to be successful which means they are not a good fit, and we will end our relationship prematurely.
    2. The apprentice will deliver great work, and grow our business to the point that we continue working well into the future.

Other things to be mindful of before applying:

    1. Startup Hours: Dealmaker Wealth Society, LLC is a start-up, so if your goal is to work from 9-5 then stop reading, you’re not the person we’re looking for.

We need someone willing to do whatever it takes.

So if you can’t handle a chaotic, super-fast, and all-hands-on-deck environment, then don’t even bother applying.

  • Remote Work: We are a remote team with teammates in Miami, Baltimore, Mexico, and other countries.Now, while we collaborate remotely, it also means that you need to be a well-organized collaborator and a great communicator.

    For this role, you’ll be working from your house but expected to keep 9 am – 5 pm
    EST hours.

  • Globally Ambitious: Our team is composed of some of the most ambitious, hungry, and diverse people from any other company you’ve probably been a part of.We have a teammate who attended an ivy league university. Our founders have
    collectively participated or bought over 350 businesses in transactions worth
    nearly $48 billion in value. Yes, Billion.

    Another teammate is a former Agora publisher and copywriter, whom you’ll be
    learning from if you are chosen for this short form copywriter role.

    You’ll be part of this team if you make the cut.

  • Anti-Politics: We hate politics at Dealmaker Wealth Society. Period.
  • Get Work Done On Time: Finally, your #1 metric of success as our copywriting apprentice is to write Youtube Ad, Facebook Ad, and email copy.Don’t worry, you’ll have all the support you need to get results. We won’t leave you hanging!

    Okay, now onto what projects you’ll get to work on…
