Introducing...
Part 2: The Flaming Camel Process 🔥🐪
Yeah, yeah.

I know.

“Flaming camel”

WTF, right?

I promise I’ll explain the origins of the weird name (as well as how it actually works) in a sec, so stick with me.

But before any of that -

Back to the story.

World-class, Forbes-featured email copywriter John McIntyre opened up one of his prestigious coaching spots to me…

...and later asked me to be a guest on his mega-popular ‘Email Marketing Podcast’, alongside other industry giants like John Carlton, Perry Marshall, Russell Brunson, and Andre Chaperon:
And here’s what the man himself had to say about the flaming camel:
John McIntyre
World class email copywriter and founder of 'The McIntyre Method' and 'The Email Marketing Podcast' (which has over half a million downloads)
"Unlike anything I've ever seen before...
seriously impressive stuff."
"Shiv's 'Flaming Camel' strategy is unlike anything I've ever seen before. 

It was the reason he was able to land not 1, not 2, but 3 freelance copywriting clients... just 3 months into his copywriting career, including a $5k/mo retainer right off the bat. 

Seriously impressive stuff. 

Most people don't make that much progress in 1-2 years.  So if you're looking for a super fast way to land high-paying copywriting clients on retainer -

Shiv's 'Flaming Camel' strategy is a very safe bet."

Word soon reached Derek Johanson, creator of CopyHour*.

(*One of the most successful copywriting training programs ever made, responsible for the careers of superstar copywriters like Ian Stanley, Dan Ferrari, and Chris Orzechowski)

He invited me to explain more about my process inside his private, 4000-member CopyHour Facebook group…

...where he grilled me about it for nearly an hour:
In fact, Derek liked my approach SO much that he promoted it to his list… and later said this about me and the flaming camel:
Derek Johanson
Founder of 'CopyHour', a world-class training program that has created some of the most successful freelance copywriters in the field
"Shiv is my secret weapon..."
"Shiv is my secret weapon...

If a freelance copywriter is struggling I send them to Shiv and his "Flaming Camel" process. 

Within a few weeks they come back transformed and often with a dream client on a big retainer!"
"Shiv is my secret weapon..."

Suddenly, my little-known flaming camel process wasn’t so ‘little-known’ anymore…

...and once A-list copywriter Roy Furr (whose praises have been sung by everyone from Gary Bencivenga... to Mark Ford...to Brian Kurtz... to the late, great Clayton Makepeace) learnt how it worked, he asked me if he could promote it to HIS subscribers as well.

(He almost NEVER does affiliate promos)

Here’s Roy giving his unfiltered opinion on the flaming camel:
Roy Furr
World-renowned, A-list copywriter and author of 'The Copywriter's Guide To Getting Paid' and 'Breakthrough Marketing Secrets'
"Shiv's Flaming Camel approach is brilliant...a powerful and reliable way to get retainer clients"
"Shiv's flaming camel approach is brilliant. And, in fact, it's been one of my secret weapons for years. At first, because of the name, I thought it was a complete gimmick (spoiler: it's not).  

Once I realized what he was talking about, it struck me: this has been one of the most powerful copywriting client-getting strategies I've ever used. 

 The difference between me and you (reading this right now) is that it took me years of work and a bit of dumb luck to stumble on it, whereas here you have Shiv delivering it to you on a silver platter.  Tested. Refined. And systematized. With tweaks to make it even more powerful.  

That plus Shiv's other two key ingredients make this a powerful and reliable way to go out and get retainer clients for your copywriting business right now.  

And yet, you don't have to take my word for it, or Shiv's. Rather, just look to his student success stories to realize how he's made this plug-and-play to work in other copywriters' businesses. 

 And then prove it for yourself, by trying it and seeing what results you get."

Since then, I’ve had LOADS of copywriters from all spectrums of our industry rave about my process.

Like Daniel Throssell… dubbed "the best marketer in Australia" by his 7 and 8-figure clients, and one of the highest-paid (and most ripped off) copywriters in the history of Upwork:
Daniel Throssell
Freelance copywriter with over $20m+ in sales under his belt, whose work has been praised by everyone from Ramit Sethi, to Ben Settle, to Kim Krause Schwalm
"Shiv's process is a GREAT way to break into the higher tiers of the copywriting world"
"When I found out how Shiv’s 'flaming camel' process worked, I was genuinely impressed.

His proven and repeatable approach is a GREAT way to break into the higher tiers of the copywriting world.

I even told him:

If I were starting out again and only had a few clients under my belt, I’d use your system to quickly 'level up' and land high-paying retainers for myself!”

As well as Joshua Lee Henry (a multimillion-dollar-producing copywriter who has worked with marketing titans like Jay Abraham, Dan Lok, Agora, and Brian Tracy), who said:
Joshua Lee Henry
Freelance copywriter, consultant, and ghostwriter for some of the biggest names in marketing... and author of 'The ABC’s of Advertising: How to Motivate Prospects to Take Action, Measure the ROI of Your Marketing and Spark More Sales Today.'
"NOBODY has a clear path to landing retainer deals... that's why I like your flaming camel process so much!"
"There’s NOT a lot of training out there for struggling, semi-pro copywriters on how to get some quick momentum. 

Even within the high-level mastermind groups I’m part of (alongside almost every major player in the copywriting and marketing world)... NOBODY has a clear, simple path on how to land retainer deals. 

That’s why I like your flaming camel process so much!"

And celebrated A-list copywriter Adil Amarsi (who, outside of generating well over half a billion in sales, was the first person to pioneer the use of testimonials on landing pages... before guys like Frank Kern ever thought to do it), who said:
"Shiv's system will transform your copywriting business whilst helping you create the life that you want"
Adil Amarsi
Host of the popular 'Adil Amarsi Unplugged' podcast and revered A-list copywriter who has generated over $700m in sales for his clients
"I’ve seen what goes on inside his program, and I can personally vouch for Shiv’s system. It works. It’s brilliant.

The feast and famine cycle of copywriting was the worst thing I went through when I was younger. So if you get the chance to join the flaming camel, do it. 

It will transform the way you run your copywriting business, whilst helping you create the life that you want.

I GUARANTEE that if you apply what he teaches you will EASILY make your investment back in his program!”

Anyway...

I shan’t bore you to tears by listing out every single endorsement I’ve ever gotten.

(Rest assured, there are plenty more!)

The reason I’m telling you this is to PROVE that this sh*t works.

I’m NOT some jumped up ‘copywriting coach’ who took a ‘how to be a 6-figure consultant’ training and now thinks he can charge copywriters thousands for a crappy program.

Nor am I a guru with a $997 client-getting course full of hot air promises that don’t even come close to delivering.

Believe me -

I hate all that BS as much as you do.

Instead, as cliche as it is to say... 

The ‘flaming camel process’ - which has been SPECIFICALLY designed to help copywriters land $3k-$5k/month retainers - is the real deal.

The best part?

It does NOT require a Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, or *insert social media platform here* account…

A website…

A portfolio…

Any sort of network…

An endless stream of content posts…

A trail of pissed off business owners who you’ve generically cold-pitched…

…or any of the saturated, spray-and-pray, and/or STUPIDLY time consuming strategies you’ve been told to do.

Look -

Here’s the real truth I wish someone would tell all the copywriting ‘gurus’:

You don’t need loads of different client-getting paths to follow.

Instead -
You Need Just ONE Proven Process
One fully mapped out, in-depth, step-by-step, repeatable, PROCESS.

No uncertainty. 

No second-guessing. 

No confusion.

No randomness.

All you need to do is follow the process until you get your result. 

That’s what the flaming camel gives you that NOTHING else in the industry does.

ONE complete system with ONE core client-attraction process that I used to book myself out with consistent, high-paying copywriting work at break-neck speed.

I created it out of pure necessity.

(As you saw in part 1)

And now, I've worked with $10m/year business coaching companies and world-famous Hollywood personal trainers and coaches (among others) for retainers as large as $5k/month...

...all thanks to the process I created and refined.
And here’s the kicker:
I’m not an elite, top-tier, or A-list copywriter.

Far from it!

(As I’m sure you can tell from reading this haha)

There’s every chance you’d run laps around me in a ‘beat the control’ contest.

And that’s the point.

You don’t need to “be so good they can’t ignore you”.

(^ Which is a phrase every copywriting guru throws at you, before a cunning segue into a pitch for their course…)

Instead, here’s the cold, hard, truth:
 
Once you’re able to write copy that converts…
 
...and you’ve got at least SOME paid experience working with clients…
 
...‘levelling up’ your copywriting career is NOT about how good you are.
 
Instead -
It's about how well you market yourself
At the risk of sounding arrogant…
 
...I managed to do more with my copywriting career in just a few MONTHS than what much better copywriters than me take YEARS to do.
 
That's NOT because I'm god's gift at copywriting. 
 
(I'm not sh*t either, my copy converts and I'm always looking to improve and get better - so don't think you can get away with landing massive clients on retainer if you suck at your craft)
 
Instead -
 
I achieved the level of freelance copywriting success that I have PURELY because of my reliable and highly systemised client-getting process.
 
The same process I’ve been teaching to copywriters like Crisshaun:

(Who, before he learnt from me, was stuck posting content on his Facebook wall and awkwardly reaching out to businesses on LinkedIn, landing nothing but small-fry businesses with shoestring marketing budgets...)
You Need Just ONE Proven Strategy
"The flaming camel is the very best way to hit the 6-figure mark I've found"
Crisshaun Nelson-Jackson
Freelance Copywriter
"If I were just starting, I'd want 2 things:

An awesome email copywriting course.

And The Flaming Camel Strategy.

It's, bar none, the smartest way of getting qualified leads that can pay the fees I want... FAST.

The process turns revenue 'goals' into an inevitability. 

And without awkward networking or social media spamming or anything like that.

It's the very best way to hit the six-figure mark I've found."

And Bez:

(Who was fighting over crumbs on Upwork, hating his life, before learning my process...)
Bez Wong
Freelance Copywriter
"I was skeptical of the flaming camel... but after quickly getting my foot in the door with a $100k/month business... this sh*t works!"
"To be honest, I was skeptical of the flaming camel!

But what else was I going to do?

Continue to find myself working with low-tier, pain in the ass clients on Upwork?

So given the choice of figuring this out of my own or to learn Shiv's flaming camel process, it was a no-brainer... especially when people like John McIntyre vouched for him.

And now that I'm on the inside, seeing his students getting retainers...and after quickly getting my foot in the door with $100k/month real estate coaching businessI gotta say, this shit works!"

And Areeba:

(Pre-flaming camel, Areeba was trawling copywriting job boards and freelancer sites, competing on price against a sea of other copywriters, charging just $0.02 per word (!!)...)
Areeba Ahmed
Freelance Copywriter
"I went from charging $0.02/word on Upwork to taking over as head copywriter for an 8-figure client"
"Before joining the Flaming Camel, I was hopping from one client getting strategy to another and had to resort to sites like Fiverr (which pay like $0.02-0.1 per word) for consistent work. 

But after learning from Shiv...

I’ve booked calls and generated huge retainer deals with massive businesses... specifically, I've taken over as head copywriter for an 8-figure client in the fitness business space!

And although this isn’t a “copy coaching” program, just by sending out flaming camels the way Shiv teaches, and getting his feedback, I've seen MASSIVE improvements in my copy chops. 

This is definitely one of the best programs out there. Shiv is super supportive, and he’s always there to help you whenever you feel stuck!"

The list of insane 'uplevels' goes on.
 
Okay… 

Before I explain WHY it’s called the ‘flaming camel’...

HOW my process actually works…

And WHERE you can go to learn it yourself...

...I need to walk you through a concept I’ve called the ‘5 Levels Of Freelance Copywriting’, so you can see where the flaming camel fits within the context of the entire freelance copywriting game.

(Think of this as the journey that lays ahead, should you choose to undergo the flaming camel transformation)

I know, that’s a merciless open loop!

But stick with me.

I PROMISE it’ll be worth it.

(And a whole load of fun!)

Let’s get into it...
