The now-famous “Day 3” event is a safe room to learn and discuss the realities of working as a freelancer, and our latest and best insights for how to have the career you want. Between my three private freelancer coaching programs and all we learn from placing writers with clients through the Copy Chief, plus private consulting with several of the world’s highest producing publishing agencies… I can humbly say me and my team understand the world of freelance copywriting better than anyone else. You’ll get the condensed teaching and most impactful insights from the entire year of our in-the-trenches knowledge. If you’re a freelancer, or plan to make a living as a copywriter, then you cannot miss Day 3. Brunch included, and we’ll start comfortably late so you have time to recover from the X-Factor Party on Wednesday night.
Copy Chief Live (CCL) has quickly become the premier networking event in
the industry. Major publishers and independent marketing companies come to CCL eager to meet and hire
quality copywriters of all experience levels. Many life-altering work opportunities have come out of the
Roundtable Meetups where the companies pitch the copywriters, and often sign them right on the spot. It’s like
nothing else in the industry. You have to experience it to believe it.
Our speakers are here to share and teach you,
not pitch offers from stage.
I love bringing passionate people together and watching them do great work together.
As a comic, I spent a decade traveling the U.S. playing clubs as a stand-up comic with now-famous comics like Chris Rock, Louis CK, and Billy Gardell.
As a copywriter, I’ve written or chiefed over 100 campaigns, generating over $100 million in product sales for my clients.
I gave that up to become a coach to freelance copywriters and business owners inside my awesome community, Copy Chief.
I’m most passionate about connecting good people who do great work together. So I founded the Copy Chief Agency to better connect high quality copywriters with high value clients and set them up to produce high earning campaigns together.
The X-Factor Spectacular has become the hottest ticket in the industry. There’s simply no other event party like it. Your copywriting heroes on stage jamming with the band. All your new best friends letting their hair down and dancing the night away. And with Halloween only days away, this year is bound to be the wildest yet! What better place to debut your rockin Halloween costume and let your alter ego lead the way. Costumes optional… crazy fun guaranteed.
What qualifies you is not how long you’ve been writing copy, but rather your passion and dedication to the craft. If you feel it is your calling to become a great copywriter, then you’re qualified. If you’ve been at this for years and are ready to take your writing and your business to the next level, this is definitely for you.
If you write your own copy, you will leave Copy Chief Live with the most actionable tactics imaginable. I’m working with each expert speaker to not only teach you what they do, but to show you how it looks when done right. And, if you’re looking to partner with the best copywriters in the business to take these “closed door” tactics and infuse them into your current campaigns, then you’ll be in the only place on earth to find them this year.
The information and connections you make at this event will help you get the ultimate clarity on the exact types of offers you should be creating for your audience. How to grow that audience, in both size and loyalty, and allow you to mix with the best writers, marketers and even tech pros producing the highest revenue sales funnels in the industry right now.
Connect with top level direct response copywriters at Copy Chief Live. You'll shake hands with a range of copywriters of all experience levels, skillsets, and niches. Plus, if you are interested in hosting a Round Table, you get to meet every copywriter who's actively looking to work and talk directly to qualified writers looking to join you on your next marketing campaign.
This year even more companies are coming to meet copywriters. So, we’re going to coach this years copywriter attendees on how to show up to these meetings and win the gigs. You could have the biggest names chasing after YOU.
Last year, 15 attendees walked away with copywriting contracts. This year, I promise you will leave here having new connections and relationships (which can lead to great work), with some new friends, and of course, have more fun than you ever thought possible at a “copywriting conference.”
“I’ve been to A LOT of events… As a freelance copywriter for nearly 20 years, when I heard about Copy Chief Live, I knew I had to be here because Kevin Rogers brought together the best people. If you get a chance to attend, don’t miss it.”
Kim Schwalm, A-List Copywriter
“They gave me a quick spec assignment on the spot, and gave me a little pitch about their company. I did that. They loved it and gave me a job offer before Copy Chief Live even started.”
Derek Bouthilette, Copywriter
“I haven’t had this much fun since college. Kevin Rogers created an space where you could fire up your entire creative being and make connections in new and different ways. I learned a lot from teaching as a speaker, but also as an artist and copywriter.”
Marcella Allison, A-List Copywriter
“It’s a community of people who truly ‘get it’, and ‘get me.'”
“Plugging into a network of people who are doing what you you want to do, and have been where you are looking to go…”
“It’s that sense that we’re all in this together. Nobody writes alone.”
“I’ve never seen clients pitching to copywriters until this event!”
Here’s what last year’s attendees had to say about the event…
“I had an absolute blast at Copy Chief Live. I got to shake hands and talk with the biggest names in the industry – Clayton Makepeace, John Carlton, Parris Lampropoulos, and David Deutsch – and learn from them.”
Matt Mason, Copywriter
“I came because it was an opportunity to meet amazing direct response copywriters of all levels and writers who’ve influenced the lives of millions of people.”
Addison Rice, Freelance Copywriter
“I flew all the way from Australia to meet other business owners who want copywriters like me… so if you’re a copywriter and you’re not at this event, what are you waiting for?”
Dan Ludgater, Freelance Copywriter
“Just blown away. There was Lorrie Morgan (an amazing copywriter) right next to me… Dean Jackson right behind me… and I was like, ‘Okay, this is already crazy.'”
Brian McCarthy, Freelance Copywriter
One of the coolest things about this event is the location. If you’ve never been to St. Petersburg, you’re in for a treat.
The hotel is in a primo spot, close to the harbor and a block from restaurants, hip bars, and a Publix grocery store.
You’re also in strolling distance to The Dali Museum, Mahaffey Theater and Al Lang Stadium… and only 15 minutes drive from St. Pete Beach – voted one the world’s best.
All the best “hang time” outside of the ballroom is going down inside the hotel restaurant and lobby. So plan to stay at the Hilton while you’re here. Reserve quickly to take advantage of the discounted room block. You can also extend your stay at the same great rate by request. So plan to hang out a few days. Just don’t wait, the rooms are filling fast.
