Become A High-Paid Marketing Copywriter

By: Danlok

Are you a marketing consultant or copywriter still lookingfor clients, and often wonder how most people really get clients to hire them?If you are, this article will prove VALUABLE to you in a moment. Here’s why:

I came to North America from Hong Kongat the age of 14.

When I first arrived, I know not a word of English (and that’snot an exaggeration). I’ve strived and climbed my way up here, and finally atage 19 decided that I’m going to make myself a successful copywriter no matterwhat it takes.

Following certain steps, I got to where I am today. Now Ihave a mentoring program (to increase online business owners’ profits) bringingin five-figures each month—and an online information publishing business withit reaching annual revenues of ONE MILLION dollars each year.

But everything started from ZERO. You see, when I firststarted, I didn’t even make any money working for others. And that is why I’mgoing to show you TWO SIDES of the story, and how you can use them to benefityour own marketing consulting or copywriting business.

The SLOW way: This was how I first got started.

To build myself a client base, I approached known names inthe business industry. Instead of quoting a fee, I challenged myself to workfor them—free, to prove my writing abilities (or if you’re in the consultingbusiness, your business improving abilities) worthy of their time.

Of course this would take some time, and is less within yourcontrol. However, if you can do this well as I did, you’ll have a snowball ofreferrals in no time. Even though the slow side takes time, but as a tortoise competingwith the hare, you’ll reach where you want at a stable, and surely, consistentpace as you put in persistent effort.

The KEY here would be to build a relationship with who youwork for.

Plus, doing this way lets you ask for testimonials from brandnames, popular figures in the industry which will boost your credibility FAST.This helps market your services easier, since you’d have “borrowed credibility"and build instant trust with your prospects.

Then, there’s the FAST way: As taught many times byestablished copywriters and marketing consultants at the present time.

To do this, you’d first prepare a self-promotion sales copy,and buy a list of potential business owners who can use your service (from theSRDS mailing list, for example). Then, send your promotion piece (rememberDIRECT MAIL advertising?) to as many business owners as you can and see howwell your sales copy converts.

Keep improving and testing your sales copy until more andmore business owners call you up and inquire of your consulting or copywritingbusiness. The only down side for this is: If you’re not experienced with directmail advertising, it may be costly. And even then, you’d have to invest yourown money upfront to purchase a list and send them out.

On the contrary, if you are CONFIDENT with this method youcould get tons of clients interested in your services, FAST. You’d have areliable system to keep yourself booked, and have control to the “SWITCH" ofclients whenever you need them.

And here’s where the beauty lies: When your consulting orcopywriting business gets a constant flow of clients, soon you’ll have asnowball of clients knocking on your doors from all sides.

I have much more crucial secrets to CLOSING clients, butthey will take one whole book to reveal by themselves. As the saying goes, “Anaverage plan executed today is BETTER than a perfect plan executed next week."Instead of striving for perfection, get over it and FAIL OFTEN.

If you only implement either of these TWO strategiespersistently each day from now—either OFFER to work for others without chargeScience Articles,or SEND OUT your self promotion piece to a list of potential businessowners—you’ll wonder at how you got your NEW CLIENT looking back one month fromnow…
