Hi! I'm John Cornwill, your coach and guide through this immersive journey. I'm an anxious social entrepreneur and digital marketer passionate for making a positive impact to this world. I bring with me a wealth of experience in the digital advertising realm, having mastered the intricacies of social media marketing over the years. With a proven track record of successful campaigns on both Meta and TikTok platforms, I'm uniquely positioned to offer insights and strategies that are both actionable and relevant. My passionate approach to teaching, simplifying complex ideas, coupled with his hands-on expertise, ensures that you'll be learning from one of the best in the business. 

Growing up, my path seemed preordained: study hard, achieve academically, and settle into a lifelong career. In fact, at one point, I even harbored dreams of delving deep into the world of numbers as an accountant or generally just "corporate worker."

Throughout my college years, I took on the dual role of being a working student, inspired by the fact that I came from an unprivileged background with no generational wealth (not what it seems with my surname, but yes this is the truth).


Juggling academics with work was no easy feat, but it instilled in me an unparalleled drive and determination. Then, 2020 arrived, reshuffling the deck for many of us. It was in this climate of uncertainty that I stumbled upon a realm that I'd never considered before: online freelancing. It wasn't just about earning; it was about experiencing a freedom I'd never felt before.

Harnessing the immense potential of Facebook Advertising, I managed to generate an impressive 10X ROI for my clients. This wasn't just about numbers anymore; it was about growth. And soon, I utilized this newfound knowledge to cultivate my brainchild, Bakas Apparel, transforming it into a 7-figure social enterprise in mere months.

People often ask me, "John, what exactly do you do?" With a twinkle in my eye, I respond, "I'm in the business of growing businesses, including my very own." 


While the road I've walked has been anything but straight, it's been rich in lessons.

Venture into the heart of this program and you'll find a blend of passion, innovation, and academic rigor. As a social entrepreneur, I dedicate myself to driving social change and making an impact. 


Rooted in a foundation of rigorous academic training, I am proud to be a Management graduate from the esteemed University of the Philippines. This blend of hands-on entrepreneurial experience and structured academic grounding has shaped my approach to the digital realm. My aim is to share this unique fusion of knowledge, ensuring that the program not only teaches but also inspires a new wave of online freelancers to create lasting impact.

What can I learn from this?

Dive into the heart of our program, and you'll be introduced to an innovative framework known as ThreeLancing. Crafted from firsthand experience, this guide demystifies the complex world of freelance media buying by breaking it down into three actionable and digestible stages:

The ThreeLancing

This program covers the three (3) main stages of freelance media buying (or even freelancing in general), from client-hunting to service-delivery and client-retention.

These stages with acronym—L.C.S.—break down the journey into:

  1. Looking for Clients: Explore strategies to identify and attract potential clients in the bustling digital landscape. You'll gain insights into choosing your target industry, targeting the right businesses, leveraging platforms effectively, and setting yourself apart in a competitive market.

  2. Closing Clients: Transition from prospecting to partnership. Learn the art of influence and negotiation, understanding client needs, and presenting your services in a way that resonates with potential clients. We delve deep into the nuances of client communication, proposal presentation, building trust, and the paperworks (hate this but yeah, we need it for our security).

  3. Serving Clients: Once onboarded, the true challenge begins. Master the intricacies of delivering impeccable media buying services. From creating impactful ad campaigns on Meta and TikTok to ensuring consistent results, this stage focuses on exceeding client expectations and building long-term relationships.

Each of these stages is meticulously broken down into processes, enriched with in-depth explanations, real-world examples, and actionable guides. My aim is to equip you with a comprehensive roadmap, ensuring every touchpoint, from initial contact to retaining clients, is handled with expertise and confidence.

What can I expect after finishing this?

Considering you follow all the steps and instructions in this program, you can expect to achieve the following:

  • Gain confidence to start offering media buying as a freelance service

  • Have a starter portfolio that can qualify you for common job postings

  • Implement systems that can build sustainable sources of income without going back to starting from scratch everytime

What Makes This Different?

At the core of our program is the unique 'ThreeLancing' approach, a methodology pioneered by our founder that encapsulates the full spectrum of freelance media buying. Unlike other courses that often offer fragmented insights, we provide a holistic view of the journey, covering every nuance from client acquisition to retention. Our focus on the LCS stages—Looking for Clients, Closing Clients, Serving Clients—offers a structured roadmap that's both intuitive and actionable. Furthermore, we don't just teach generic media buying; our curriculum is tailored specifically for the Meta and TikTok platforms, ensuring relevancy in today's fast-paced digital era. Coupled with real-world examples, hands-on guides, and the mentorship of seasoned professionals like John Cornwill, this program is designed to not just inform, but to transform. Dive in, and you'll experience a blend of theory and practical application that's truly unparalleled in the industry.
