People tell me all the time that choosing Facebook and Instagram ad targeting makes them want to throw their computer out the window and I don't blame them. There are a ton of options and that makes it easy for you to flush money down the Zuckerberg drain. So, I put together a big old list of what Facebook calls ‘Interests’ for you and a totally free spreadsheet separated out by niche. I also created a short PDF that explains how to go about using those interests so you don't waste a ton of time putting together your audience. Take the guessing out of Facebook and Instagram ad targeting. Get my glorious spreadsheet and explainer PDF here. Now it’s time to GET PAID Thanks for tuning into the Get Paid Podcast!

This episode reveals more about how to tap into what Laura does to make her writing so addictive than any other we’ve done with her.
Copywriting is one of the most important skills you need to develop as an entrepreneur. Think of how much copy you need to write in a given year: weekly emails, blog posts, social media captions, marketing emails, sales pages–oh my! But so many entrepreneurs tell me, “Yea, but I just don’t know WHAT to say!” or “I don’t know how to sound like myself!” or “I don’t know how to be engaging and capture people’s attention.” If you’ve got a major case of writer’s block, or if trying to write emails or copy for your business makes you groan or break a sweat, this episode is for you! My guest today, Laura Belgray, is the founder of Talking Shrimp and co-creator of The Copy Cure. Laura is a copywriting expert who helps entrepreneurs find the perfect words to express and sell what they do in a way that gets them paid to be themselves. Through her work with hundreds of clients (including online biggies like Marie Forleo and Amy Porterfield) she’s seen firsthand that putting “you” into your copy and all through your business is pure magic for getting people to love you up, share your ideas, and happily click your Buy button. In addition to online types, Laura’s list of clients and credits include NBC, Bravo, HBO, TBS, Fandango, and many, many more. So if you watch TV — and don’t skip the commercials — you’ve probably seen her words on air. What you’ll learn in this episode: How to deal with haters or unsubscribers from polarizing emails How Laura teamed up with Marie Forleo to create The Copy Cure course How to do a ‘lazy launch’ in your business What to do if you don’t know how to sound like yourself when you write, or if you think you’re “boring” How to come up with story ideas Subscribe and Review Thanks so much for joining me this week.
