Ever get this feeling in your gut that now is the time to scale?

Sure, things are going well for you as a freelancer. You’ve grown your knowledge, skills, and experience. Your clients are happy with your work. You love what you do.

Still, there’s this nagging voice in your head.

Over and over again, it tells you that you were meant for something bigger.

You were meant to build a legacy and scale into a fully-fledged entrepreneur.

But wait, you say.

“Where do I go from here? What’s the first step I should take towards building a DFY services agency from scratch? Where do I find the right people to hire, and how many do I need at first? How do I find a consistent stream of clients to keep everyone working for me happy?”

I know, it’s a lot to take in.

If only there were a blueprint you can follow step by step to success.

(Hint: there is.)

The Truth Behind Starting an Online Business (And Whether You Should Start Your Own)

julia build an agency

Facts: Not everyone was meant to start an agency.

They’re wrong when they tell you that all freelancers have to morph into agency owners someday.

If you’re happy with where you are, serving your personal clients and working for yourself…

…that’s totally fine.

But if you’re like me, you won’t be satisfied with that for long.

There’s this rebel voice inside your head, telling you that you can do so much more. Be so much more. Reach so much higher.

If this is you?

You’re going places.

You see, starting an online business is lifechanging.

Here’s proof:

  • Back in 2011, I started my own content agency, Express Writers, on nothing but $75. Today, it’s a thriving business with 5,000+ happy clients.
  • Jon Morrow (founder of SmartBlogger) earns $100,000 a month through his courses and coaching business.
  • Chandler Bolt turned his love for helping self-published authors into a $26 million business by the age of 27.

So here’s the truth about starting an online business (straight from me, a 10+ year entrepreneur).

It’s not going to be easy.

(Yes, it’ll be so much simpler to continue your own solo freelancing journey.)

But it’ll be worth it.

Go from Confused to Confident

& Start Up Your Own Agency Model

Starting up your own business will be worth it, and I meant it.

But there’s a problem.

Not all businesses survive.

In fact, only 35% of businesses make it to 10 years.

Maybe this fact is what’s stopping you.

“How do I know I won’t be part of the 65% of businesses that fail within their first 10 years?”

If you’re asking this, you’re asking the right question.

You see, you can’t jump into starting up a business and simply pray to the universe that everything will turn out right. You can’t trust in happenstance. You can’t guess your way to success.

What you need is a formula.

A step-by-step blueprint that shows you what to do, who to hire, how to price, and how to find a consistent flow of clients.

A guide that’ll be your go-to whenever you feel lost and have no idea what step to take next.

If you’re looking for something like that…

…you’ve come to the right place.

Agency & Entrepreneur Business Setup Training: My One-Hour Workshop and Blueprint for Starting Up Your Own Agency

As the owner of a 10+ year content agency, Express Writers, I’m proud and humbled at the same time.

I’m proud that despite the mistakes and struggles we’ve been through, we made it past the mark where most businesses fail.

I’m humbled because back in the day, I knew nothing about owning and running a business.

So wherever you are in the entrepreneurship journey right now, I’ve got your back.

That’s exactly why I decided to share my agency’s secrets with you in my one-hour workshop, Agency & Entrepreneur Business Setup Training.

Now, here’s the thing.

Throughout the years, I’ve never shared our processes. They’re very precious to me, and I’ve done my best to keep them from people who wanted to steal my ideas and clone my business.

But in my workshop, I’m sharing them all with you. I’m agreeing to be vulnerable, knowing that I can help a ton of startup entrepreneurs who are just like me 10 years ago.

agencies done for you services workshop

To be honest, this is one of my favorite workshops. Inside Agencies & Entrepreneur Business Setup Workshop, I’ll show you:

  • Behind the scenes at my content agency Express Writers, including our processes and secrets on pricing, hiring, rates, and more
  • My own internal and external pricing list, which you can use as inspiration when you create your own
  • My rule for profit margins (follow this rule and you won’t find yourself bombarded with surprise costs)
  • How we find a steady stream of top-notch clients without spending a cent on ads (and how you can do it too)
  • How to build a team you can put your trust in (and the mistakes to avoid when hiring)
  • How to interview people so you don’t throw away time and resources on wrong hires
  • And so much more!

Know what you’ll love most about this workshop?

I won’t throw a textbook at you and leave you to make the best of it.

Nope, nothing like that.

I created all my workshops to be a personal experience for you, the learner.

That’s why I recorded over-the-shoulder videos just for you (nope, no recorded LIVE webinars). I created a workbook to go with all the lessons. I included guides and examples you can learn from.

And in this special workshop, I added Express Writer’s own internal and external pricing list as a free download, so you can use it to guide and inspire your own pricing.

This workshop is everything you need to get you started on your journey towards a successful online agency.

And you can complete it in only one hour.

Hi! I’m Julia McCoy, and I Started Up My Own 7-Figure Content Agency from Scratch

The truth is, I’m not the only person out there teaching you how to start up your own online business.

Go online, and you’ll find a ton of gurus with huge, irresistible promises.

But let me ask you this before you choose your teacher.

Have they been able to achieve what they promise they can teach you?

For me, that’s the #1 thing to look for when deciding on reading a blog, buying a course, or signing up for a workshop.

“Has this person accomplished what they say they can teach?”

Now, I’m not saying this to brag or to put other so-called gurus in a bad light.

I’m saying this because I want you to get the best worth for your time, money, and energy.

So if you decide to choose me as your teacher, I can tell you this.

I have accomplished what I promise to teach you.

You see, way back in 2011, I was a thriving freelancer. I had a ton of happy clients who loved the content I was producing for them. And then, my passion and love for what I was doing drove me to start up a business based on content.

Flash forward to today, Express Writers is a thriving 7-figure company with 90+ people on staff and 5,000+ satisfied clients. If you want to know how to build an agency model that works, I’m the person who can teach this to you.

Case Study: How I Made $5 Million in the Last 10 Years with DFY Content Writing Services

This is my story.

Way back in 2011, I was living in a cult and had nothing but $75 to my name.

Know what else I had?

An incredible passion for writing and an insatiable desire to live a life doing what I loved.

That’s why I took the $75 and turned it into my very first website.

Express Writers, my DFY content writing agency, was born.

And the truth is, it hasn’t been easy.

There have been bumps along the road. I failed, many times. I fell down and had to crawl out of countless wreckages.

But I made it, learned, and grew from each failure.

Slowly, I built systems and strategies that proved to work.

Since then, I’ve made $5 million selling content writing services. We’re now hitting consistent seven figures year-over-year. Best of all, we’ve had 5,000 happy clients who loved the work we did for them.

agency sales

Just one month in agency income.

Now, let me tell you this.

No matter where you are, start there.

If I started with no college degree and nothing but $75 in my pocket…

…you can do it too.

Plus, who knows?

With my strategies and blueprint in your back pocket, I bet it won’t take you as long as I did to get the success you’re dreaming of.

What Students Say About The Content Hacker™ Academy


"I love all the valuable information you provide in the Unlearn Essay Writing Course. For me it's the first time I do a course on writing, and I really wanted to do it because I have been writing in social media and my blog for the past months, and all this time I just felt clueless. With your course I have received enough knowledge and resources so as to get me started and feel I will now know what I'm doing.

Another thing which I love about the course is the format. It's just beautiful. Compared to other courses which are recordings of live sessions, the refined style of your course is truly inspiring, engaging, and educational.

Kind regards ❤️  Marielle"

"The CS&M course is well organized, easy to understand, and highly usable, meaning you can apply it right away. Julia makes use of more than just her own resources, as well–she draws on the wisdom of other influencers in the industry with proven success. Real studies and statistics support her claims, so she’s not just opinionating. Julia is also amazing at feedback–she answers promptly and provides highly useful answers and examples. This course has been so informative, endlessly fascinating, and even fun–which is how I know I’m in the right industry. Thank you, Julia, for your tireless help and deeply comprehensive answers to my questions in the FB group–I’ve not experienced that from an instructor in a while! I’m ultimately grateful that you’ve provided this amazing journey, as it’s kept me in a more positive place in a year of negativity and difficulty by giving me purpose, direction, and exercise for my brain."

“I am going through Module 2 in The Content Strategy & Marketing Course regarding audience persona and Facebook ads. The module alone is worth the price of the course. I have paid dozens of so-called experts over the past two years, not to mention actual ad costs, and NONE of the people I hired came close to helping me like this module. I finally know how to build a persona and use FB ads in a targeted way. Now, just collecting survey results. By the way, I discovered my audience persona is the EXACT audience I want to target, just didn’t know how until this course.”

—Kimberly Raya, Founder at

"I can’t thank you enough for everything that you do. I still remember when I decided to research content writing and your video came up on YouTube. Thank God that it did. I loved how you explained everything so clearly and I felt empowered to pursue this skill.

Your programs and guides have been a great experience and I appreciate the time you took to teach the course, and I am looking forward to using my newfound skills as a content writer.”

"If you're considering hiring Julia to train you, DO IT. She puts so much time and effort into her coaching, her courses, and her recommendations to your exact needs. You will walk away with a plan of action to get to your next step, and peace of mind that you're being coached by the absolute best of the best in the content marketing world. My advice if you hire Julia as your coach: Spend time answering her pre-session questions thoroughly--that will help Julia get to know you more, determine the best recommendations and action items for you and help you see strengths/skills that you didn't know you had."

"Since creating my strategy in The Content Strategy & Marketing Course, I have even more ideas that I am going to add to it. Truly a stellar course with so much good content, and taking action step-by-step as I went through the lessons made it all make so much sense. Cheers to you and thank you, Julia!"

—Sarah Schaefer Christoper, Freelance Copywriter & Entrepreneur

"I don't know how I found Julia, but I'm glad I did. Her course materials are comprehensive and up to date. After learning the groundwork, you will have the skills to write optimized and interesting posts. She introduces you to many of the cutting edge data tools out there (SEMrush, BuzzSumo, Ahrefs to name a few). Her Practical Content Strategy and Marketing Course and the Expert SEO Content Writer Course were great! Julia has taught me enough to start getting great ideas for a future in the content marketing industry. Go for it!"

stuart williams
—Stuart Williams, Content Creator at The Consciousness Portal

"I want to give Julia and her course a big endorsement. Her course is a complete game changer if you're looking to create content that will engage your audience, and WILL make you money. Personally, I don't want to waste time writing for the sake of writing and hoping it gets views. Her course breaks down exactly what you need to do, step-by-step. My favorite part? Access to Julia! You get your questions ANSWERED. If you're on the fence about this, what I can tell you -- if you DO the work, you are guaranteeing yourself success. There's no question this course is gold. But it's only gold if you execute on it. Thank you, Julia, for this course! The best part, I almost forgot to say -- the course continues to get better! She brings in speakers and updates the material all the time, which is amazing."

"With so many courses on the market, it is difficult to determine which ones will actually be transformative. Consuming education in the digital space and learning for real world application are two different objectives. This course provides the latter; using a practical step-by-step approach with real time practice in order to build skills while learning. As a writer, and through this course, I have been able to get to know myself better. When I decided to completely abandon my 20-year banking career to follow my passion and become a writer, I knew I needed to invest in a program committed to my long term success goals. This is that course!"
