How To €arn A Very Comfortable Living As A Well Paid Freelance Writer In 2022... by SnrBrother(m): 9:03am On Mar 12
In 2016, Sanusi - said something interesting.


He said he knew how to make ONE BILLION naira in one afternoon, while sitting in his garden - and with ONE PHONE call.


…and he could do this WITHOUT investing a dime.


Without starting a business


…or doing anything except a phone call


All he had to do was call someone in the CBN, get $10M at official rate & offload it on the black market…


…take the profit in billions of naira & return the $10M.


Dollar is ₦416 official rate


₦565 Black market rate.


Profit is ₦149


Multiply that profit by ₦10,000,000 = ₦1.4 Billion pure profit on that $10M (burst your jingles sprinkles, abi)


I don’t know how legal that is…but he swears many top billionaires in the country do it & he can do this with a phone call.


Now here is the thing - Resources are NOT limited, only a knowledge of how to get it.


There is $10M lying idle in the CBN now.


…that can be flipped exactly the same way Sanusi described.


But we (me and you) do not know who to call or who to offload it to.


Read this again - Resources are NOT limited, only a knowledge of how to get it.


This means what most people have is not a money problem. It is a knowledge problem.


There are ways to earn comfortable living online selling easy to acquire skills to abroad based businesses that pay you in dollars.


…and some people are doing it EASILY, and hitting it BIG…and I swear to you, they probably do not work harder than you do…they just know somethings you don’t!


So if you are intrigued by this....


Here is what you need to do.


� STEP 1: Crave knowledge - because it is the key.

� STEP 2: Learn a high-income skill.

� STEP 3: Look for businesses that can benefit from using your skill.

� STEP 4: Collect MEATY fees to help these businesses grow with your skill.

This is exactly how thousands of young Africans are earning thousands of dollars every month these days.

They are partnering/working with companies from all around the globe without even leaving the shores of Africa.

And it's all thanks to this new economy.

One of the high-income skills in this new economy that I’d highly recommend for anyone is EMAIL COPYWRITING.

As an email copywriter, your task is to write simple marketing emails, usually between 100 - 500 words, that can help other companies/businesses sell their products.

There are thousands of businesses online who depend on email to drive their revenue and they are always on the hunt for good email copywriters.

Many of these companies make about $10k per email.

So paying someone $1k - $5k a month to write those emails that make them money is nothing to them.

So you can easily charge $30 - 50 even as a beginner for every email you help these businesses write.

The sweetest part?

These companies ALMOST ALWAYS need more than one email.

Sometimes, they can order up to 20 emails at a go!

Imagine if you as a beginner charges just $30 to write ONE of those emails.

That'd be a $600 payday ($30 x 20 emails) from just one client.

Getting 2 - 3 of such clients in a month would translate to $1200 - 1800 at that rate...

And that’s just as a beginner.
under your belt, you can easily kick up your rates to $100-and-above per email.

Crazy, right?

The good thing about choosing to learn this skill is that you are not going to study it like a four year University course.

In fact, if all you have is just 1 hour daily, you can learn to become a good-enough email copywriter capable of charging companies $30 - 50 to write their emails.

So you can even learn this skill even while working your regular "9-5"

If this feels like something you will like to do,

I know a guy who has been doing this for MORE than 5 years now, Victor Eni.

Not only that, he has helped over 400 folks who had little to no writing experience and also good writers who were simply making peanuts from their writing skills to go from zero to earning upwards of $1,000 to $5,000 per month as email copywriters.

Today, they afford their own place...

Support their loved ones when the need arises...

They no longer have the problems, the worries, and the annoying lump of anxiety they used to experience before due to lack of money.

He has now condensed everything in a virtual workshop where he will show you:

� What it takes to write good marketing emails.

� How to become a good-enough email copywriter... even if all you have is 1 hour a day.

� Examples of companies that pay well for good emails.

And so much more..

If you’d like to learn how this income model works, you should register to partake in this workshop.

You will get to see a breakdown of how 4 emails that this guy wrote for an American company in 2020 led to a $3200/month contract.

You will understand better during the workshop.

❗️Fun Fact❗️

Last year 2021, a 21 year old girl from Pakistan Areeba Ahmed pocketed $150,000 from her email copywriting services last year and she only started copywriting in 2019.

Imagine that..

That is about N75,000,000 at N500 exchange rate.

That's the power of earning in dollars.

Nigerians are far better in English than Pakistanis

If she can do this, then I believe any Nigerian who can read and write very well can do it too under the right guidance.

Take advantage of this opportunity now!

One email copywriting client can change your life!


That's exactly what happened to Victor...

...the guy whose workshop you will partake in.

Here's how it happened....

He decided to start an online business in January 2014 as a 300L student of UNIBEN.

For starters, he tried selling information products in the form of short reports.

But try as hard as he may, things didn't really shift into high gear for him...

...this was mostly down to the fact that he was too broke to cough up funds for advertising.

He struggled badly. As in, "badly" with a B.

That struggle would fester, like a rotten wound, for a whopping TWENTY-SIX months (2+ years)!

But like an Olympian sprinter, he motored on; never looking back.

Then in February 2016, he found out that he could get paid to write emails for other companies.

And luckily for him, he had learned how to write marketing emails in all those 26 months of famine.

So he registered on a platform where foreign clients are known to hire email copywriters.

In exactly 6 days after starting out, he had his first client - a business owner from Singapore.

The guy paid him $120 to write 30 emails.

Writing emails for that one client changed everything.

The man really liked the emails Victor wrote, so he ushered his students to him.

And for the next 2 weeks, he fired away; writing emails of varying amounts for this man's students.

By the time the first 30 days were up in his new journey, he had pocketed $700+ and his first ever 100K+ Naira.

He has since moved on from writing 30 emails for $120 to routinely charging $3K – 5K/month to help companies and business owners like Vitaliv AS, Dr. Kamilah Stevenson, DeAnna Lorraine, Mike Gillette, etc, to write their daily marketing emails.

More impressively, he has taught over 400 young Africans how to become well-paid email copywriters. And many are doing great.

How’s all of that important to you?

Well, if the idea of meeting foreign clients that can pay you life-changing sums to write their emails sounds like a boat you’d love to glide in…

Who better to teach you how to do it than someone who has been doing this for over 5 years now with proven success?

And to teach you is exactly what Victor has done with his new virtual workshop

You should give it a watch and really pay attention to learn as much as you can.

Some years back, Victor opened a thread here on nairaland that went viral and changed a lot of lives.

I'll be bringing back that thread here to create more awareness for people who would like to take advantage of this life changing opportunity....
Re: How To €arn A Very Comfortable Living As A Well Paid Freelance Writer In 2022... by SnrBrother(m): 2:42am On Mar 18
In case you are a bit befuddled with my choice of words in the topic of this thread, allow me to quickly clarify…


By “enviable income” I mean an income that is between $850 – $1000/month and all the way up to $3k/month!


I decided not to legibly slap any of those figures in the heading of this thread because the business section of NL is already drowning in such hyped up, bogus claims.


Also, stating that in the heading would give the wrong people a wrong impression about this thread.


I wouldn't want that.


With that bit of prattle out of the way, I welcome you once again to this thread.


My name is Victor.

In 2016, my Fiverr thread became a blessing to thousands of people…


Not because I shared anything special or magical, but it was because people were willing to LEARN and came in with open minds.


Here I am again…


I am going to offload some powerful information that has the potential to help you orchestrate an ENVIABLE income as an email copywriter.


I know I have previously tried to create other helpful threads since that 2016 thread and stopped halfway. But I promise to see this one all the way through.


What I will be showing you is how to become a really good email copywriter within the next 21 days so you can offer this skill as a service to STARVING businesses all around the world.


Now…


When a lot of people hear about copywriting their first thought is that "I have to be a badass writer to be a good copywriter."


I mean, it’s right there in the name!


You can take this to the bank, though…


The first and foremost SKILL you need to become a copywriter is NOT your writing skill.


What you mainly need is a mixture of CURIOSITY and a WILLINGNESS to read and read and read.


The reason is that the bulk of your copywriting work will happen at the research phase.


You research in-depth about a topic and that is when you are able to then construct simple sentences together to sell whatever it is you are selling based on the info you gathered from your research.

Fortunately for you, to crank out powerful emails for clients, you do not need to go through that much research.


But I am getting ahead of myself already.


We will dive into all of that meat in a bit.


The main thing I want you to know for now is that to become a successful copywriter, you don't have to possess Wole Soyinka levels of writing badassery.


You just have to be ready to do HARDCORE research.


If you think that is right up your alley, then I invite you to come with me on this incredible journey…
Re: How To €arn A Very Comfortable Living As A Well Paid Freelance Writer In 2022... by SnrBrother(m): 2:44am On Mar 18
THE SCOPE OF THIS THREAD:

I’m going to share the VARIOUS kinds of emails that clients need in droves and how to become good at writing these emails so you can offer them on Upwork, Fiverr and Freelancer.com.


Since 2017, I have taken a laidback approach to freelancing… because of other businesses I do, freelancing has been a part-time thing for me.


But for me, Upwork still remains the number 1 freelancing platform in the world.


Also, I’ve lately started to learn how to source for wayyyyy more deep-pocket clients outside of these freelancing platforms.


I am now looking at using email lists, ad campaigns, and LinkedIn to source for clients because I am in the middle of creating an agency.


My point is…


Whatever platform you choose to leverage on, what you are about to learn will work for you.


Whether you choose to source for clients on Upwork, or on Freelancer.com, or even outside of 'em platforms you are covered.


So for the next 2 – 3 weeks, I am going to drip feed you as much information as possible concerning this topic.


Some days you will get ONE lesson… and some other days you will get TWO lessons.


So strap yourself in and be ready to participate.


WHO IS THIS THREAD FOR?

This thread is perfect for you IF:

- You are tired of getting paid peanuts to write articles…
- You are already a freelancer looking for more lucrative skills to pounce on.
- You are a writer looking to earn from your skills…
- You are already a successful freelancer looking to branch into the writing field.

This will also work for you if you are NEW… but ONLY if you are ready to do your due diligence by putting in the HARD YARDS.
Re: How To €arn A Very Comfortable Living As A Well Paid Freelance Writer In 2022... by SnrBrother(m): 2:46am On Mar 18
HERE ARE YOUR COMMITMENTS:

NEVER be afraid to ask even 'dumb' questions or call me out on what you think/feel/perceive is wrong information.


* Never Miss a Lesson -- I will come back here over and over again to update this thread with new lessons over the course of the next 2 weeks.


You have to ensure you follow each lesson as they are being drip-fed you.

Re: How To €arn A Very Comfortable Living As A Well Paid Freelance Writer In 2022... by SnrBrother(m): 5:52am On Mar 19
LET’S DIVE IN…


Before I start any training at all, I like to talk about laying a solid foundation.


If you pay heed to the following and bring them to the table, you are giving yourself a good chance of succeeding with this training.


Firstly, not everyone who zips through the lessons and pages of this thread will make money with the information shared. It’s the truth.


While I’ll do my best to reveal everything as much as you need to get started, some people will read from page 1 to the last page and still fail with this. And that’s down to many factors.


The most common one being the FEAR to launch into the deep. i.e taking action.


You see, getting access to these lessons alone without putting into practice all that you learn is not enough to get results. Gaining knowledge is one thing and putting that knowledge into practice is quite another thing entirely.


So I am pleading with you, in order NOT to be among the percentage of people who will not make any headway with this, be ready to take action.


One of my FB friends once said: “An idiot who takes action is better than the genius who sits and thinks things through.”


So whatever you learn, in order to make it work, start taking action.


I can’t preach the importance of that enough.


Secondly, this thread on its own is not going to be the only thing you need.


While this will be chucked full with more than good-enough strategies to get you started and profitable as fast as possible, there are still other things you will need to learn that this thread may not have provided. There are other resources out there that you should also check out.


To even save costs you can make use of Google, Youtube, etc. But never stop learning and never stop improving.


Later on, I am also going to provide people you can learn from in a hands-on style on a daily basis. So be on the lookout.


Lastly, giving up shouldn’t be an option. Because this really works.


When you start out, things might be incredibly difficult for you. That is normal. A lot of things we start out as newbies need time to get used to.


But if on encountering a few difficulties, you decide to call it quits just a few weeks into your new business, then you may have missed a potentially great opportunity to carve out something sensational for yourself.


There is something called uninformed optimism…


It is the excitement people feel when they spot a new opportunity…


The brain picks up the signal that this is something that could benefit that person. It releases dopamine and gets the person optimistically excited about trying out this opportunity.


What happens to most people after this is that when they begin digging into this new opportunity, they start to see that work is actually required to succeed with it.


At this stage, their optimism starts to fade away…


Doubts start to creep in…


Fear shows its ugly face…


At this stage, the person is said to be experiencing informed pessimism.


From informed pessimism, they slip into the “valley of despair.”


This is the lowest of the lows.


...the nadir of the journey with this new thing.


It is at this stage that many, many people QUIT!


But those who persist and push through this phase will MOST likely start to see success.


They will get their first win.


With that win comes confidence.


Belief will come that “yes, I can do this.”


This stage is called informed optimism…

And that is why motivational speakers like to preach to you about never giving up. Because it aligns perfectly with how our brain treats new info.


Make of that little psychology lesson what you will.


That’s all for today.

WHAT IS COPYWRITING?

Now, we get into the meat and potatoes of this thread.

Don’t forget, the sole aim of this thread is to show you how to hone your email copywriting skill so you can start writing emails for clients and filling your bank account with moolah in the process.

Now, email copywriting is a smaller branch of the big bad guy COPYWRITING.

It’s like saying Benin City is a city under Edo State…

You feel me?

Before we swing fully into the email copywriting side of things, let’s run the rule over Copywriting in general.

This is especially important for you if you are new to all of this.

So… What really is copywriting?

Described as Gary Halbert, legendary copywriter, as the most lucrative skill in the world…

There are a thousand and one definitions out there on the internet about this topic.

But here is one that succinctly describes it best:


Copywriting is salesmanship in print.


And I’ll flesh that out with examples in a bit.

But before I do that, I’d also like to throw in my simple, dumbed-down definition:

“Copywriting is the kind of writing that is done to PROVOKE readers into taking an action.”

The action could be for them to click a link on an AD…

It could be to get them to subscribe to an EMAIL LIST…

It could also be to get them to click a link inside an email…

It could equally be to get them to buy whatever it is you are selling…

This kind of writing is different from writing to entertain people.

Okay, let’s go back to the first definition… that is the “salesmanship in print” definition.

Before the internet became a popular medium, one of the most popular ways of selling was via door-to-door campaigns.

The people who engaged in this practice were called salesmen.

And more often than not, they had a script they were trying to convince prospects from.

With the advent of the internet, this kind of selling was relegated to the background.

And now, with WORDS written on a page on the internet, anyone could reach a larger audience and make hundreds of thousands of dollars from selling their stuff.

Every online business needs copywriting.

And so people (copywriters) who can write words that CONVINCE people to whip out their wallets and buy whatever you are selling became hot properties.

There is something called direct response copywriting (that’s your assignment for today: Google this yourself and see what it means).

One of the highest direct response copywriters in the world, passed away just last month. His name was Clayton Makepeace. He used to make serious MILLIONS every year as a direct response copywriter!

Now, I have to let you know that a lot of the money Mr. Makepeace earned came from something called ROYALTIES.

That is, businesses pay him a pre-agreed amount for every sale the copy he wrote for them brought in.

That is discounting the original fee they paid for him to initially write their package (which is usually in the six figure dollars range).

Then there is Dan Kennedy – I think he is currently the #1 copywriter in the world right now that Mr. Makepeace has gone to rest.

Then there is this African-American lady, Carline Anglade-Cole, who makes at least $1M a year writing for clients as a copywriter (here is her website: carlinecole.com).

Then there is another guy called David Garfinkel who charges $25,000 for copywriting mentorship… and he charges businesses up to $100K to write their packages!

Now, why am I giving you all of these examples?

I just want to show you that putting in the work to become a great copywriter can be a very, very rewarding experience.

You may be wondering, why will businesses invest all these huge sums into one person to help them just sting common words together?

Well, imagine this…

If I paid you $100 to write one email for me…

And I send that email to my audience to sell them a $97 dollar product…

If that your one email brings in 10 sales, that makes up $970, right?

Now, I only paid you $100 to work your magic on my email.

Have I not now made a profit of $870?

That is how business owners think.

And that is why if you are DARN GOOD at what you do, they are ready to ‘chuck’ thick wads into your hands so you can write words that help them make money.


Now there are VARIOUS forms of copywriting out there:

AD copywriting – where you write ads for business owners. Ads like FB ads, instagram ads, Google ads, banner ads etc.

Email Copywriting – where you will help businesses write emails to sell their products to their EMAIL LIST.

Sales Letter Copywriting - Where you will write relatively long (7 pages and above) copies that are meant to sell a product on a WEB PAGE.

VSL Copywriting – VSL means Video Sales Letter. You will write video scripts for a video sales letter.

And so much more.

Now, you could decide to learn all these arms of copywriting in one fell swoop.

But the truth is, it’s going to take time, effort, and money to fully cut your teeth as a do-it-all copywriter.

So my simple advice to anyone trying to profit as a copywriter is to learn email writing first.

For me, it’s like the low-hanging fruit of copywriting.

Once you have a grasp of what ticks people… what emotions drive response… what people want to hear…

It becomes easier for you when you start moving up the ladder into mainstream copywriting.

I hope you understand this.

The whole essence of this particular lesson was to give you a sweeping view of copywriting and get you into the mind of a copywriter.

I don’t know if I have done a good job of it.

If I have not, I hope as we continue to progress you start to gain clarity.

But like I will always say, you can learn from various sources. So put your research skill into effect and start to gain clarity on what it means to become a copywriter.

Alternatively, you can post your hard-nosed questions as a comment below, and I’ll do my best to do much justice to it.

That’s all for now.


Stay tuned. Stay blessed.

/Peace, Love, & Light/

Why Email Copywriting?

Since you now have a grasp of what Copywriting is all about…

Let’s now aim our focus at the email copywriting part of things.

So… Why Are We Focused on Email Copywriting?

I’ll tell you a short story to spell out the number one point for you…

When I started on Fiverr in 2016, the main gig I was selling was an email copywriting gig.

My first ever order was gotten from the buyer’s section of Fiverr…

And it was a project to write THIRTY EMAILS for $120!

I did that job to the best of my ability.

It took me 3 days of back-breaking work to complete and send my work to the client.

He went over it, marked the order as complete, and proceeded to give me a five-star review.

Not only that, He also referred his students to me. And over the next couple of weeks, I was busy writing emails for this man’s students.

Some wanted 30 emails…

Some wanted 18…

Others wanted 12…

And some others wanted just 7.

Pay attention, please.

Fast forward to 2017…

I got this particular project on Upwork…

Another THIRTY emails and this time I wrote each of them for $40 (that was in 2017. I no longer charge that amount per email).

This is just one project. Over N300K to write emails.

Guess how many weeks it took me to write these emails?

Less than 2 weeks.

In case you haven’t picked up on the point I am trying to make, here it is…

When clients want an email copywriter to do a job for them they are mostly going to hire you to write NOT one, two, or 3 emails.

90% of the time, you will be writing from at least 5 emails and above.

Imagine if your rate to write one email as a beginner is $25…

Are you starting to get the point?

The #1 reason I love email copywriting is that there is VOLUME in each project you undertake.

And volume means more money. Kapish?

The SECOND REASON I love email copywriting is because the learning curve is NOT as steep.

If you were going to learn to become a really good do-it-all copywriter, you’d need to pour in hours, weeks, and months of dedicated effort into it before you can have the confidence to start charging clients for your skills.

You will have to read classic copywriting books…

You will have to handwrite classic sales copy everyday…

You will have to tattoo a number of hard rules to your memory…

You will have to lap up a heap of formulas, frameworks, and so on.

Then maybe, later on, you’d have to engage the services of a mentor (and blast it! That doesn’t come cheap).

But if you decided to take a chip – email copywriting in this case, - out of the BIG BLOCK and focus on it, you won’t need months to get up to speed.

In as little as a month, you can become a really, really good email copywriter capable of helping clients literally print out money each time they send your emails to their list.

That’s another reason I love email copywriting – it doesn’t require much learning.

The THIRD reason is that emails are fun to write.

Unlike other forms of copywriting projects where you have to be guided in what you write, you can actually be informal with your emails.

You can have fun…

You could just decide to write about your day and at the end link in something for people to buy and they will.

They are also really easy to write once you get the hang of it.

These days, I can crank out a winning email in less than 25 minutes (I hope that doesn’t make me sound like a braggart).

The FOURTH reason is that…

There is a constant demand for email copywriting work.

Take a stroll to the job feed of Upwork right now (if you have an Upwork account) and type in “email copywriting” or “email copywriter” and observe the job feed.

Or go on Craigslist and do the same.

People are always looking for badass email copywriters to help them squeeze out as much profits as possible from their lists.

So if you jump in, you are going to be jumping into a market that is really HOT.

Another reason I love this is that you can do this without a LAPTOP.

Yes, unlike most other services you can render that require you to have a laptop, becoming an email copywriter doesn’t hold you to that rule.

Just download WORD DOCS and GOOGLE DOCS on your phone and you are ready to blast off.

There are many more reasons why I love email copywriting. But these should give you a glimpse of some of the main benefits of email copywriting and why I think it makes sense to jump on it.

Breakdown of How You Could Do At Least $1K As An Email Copywriter Every Month...

Now the main goal of this thread is to get you to $1K/month as an email copywriter as soon as possible.

To help you achieve that, I will be sharing templates and other resources soon.

But before that, I want to give you a breakdown of an easy-to-follow $1K/month plan as an email copywriter.

So, as a beginner…

Let’s say you start on a platform like Upwork and start charging between $20 - $45 per email depending on your confidence level and depending on what clients' assent to pay for your service (some clients are just difficult to convince).

What that means is that…

To do $1K/month, you need to write like 60 emails on average (considering the Upwork service fee).

Let’s also assume that for each project you get to write 5 emails on average…

That’d mean you only need 12 email copywriting jobs per month to hit $1K.

If we go further ahead to break down the month into weeks, that would mean you need to do $250 every week to meet your goal.

That also means all you need is just 3 email copywriting jobs per week to hit your $1K/month goal.

Does that make sense?

Do you think doing $250/week is feasible?

Now, this is not set in stone that your earning will follow this pattern exactly.

But planning like this and breaking it down into bits is incredibly powerful. It gives you clarity on what to do each day, each week to hit your goal.

BOOM! That was the introductory part of this thread.

So here is what you need to start making money as an email copywriter:

~ A phone, tablet, or PC…
~ An ability to string simple words together.

What really is ECT?

If you have requested to watch the new email copywriting virtual workshop, you must have, at this point, seen or heard something about the Email Copywriting Tycoon program (ECT).


In this short post, you will gain a bit more clarity on what it is… and what it is not.

So, what really is ECT about?

It’s a program – more than just a course – that installs in you basic to intermediate tactics, techniques, and tricks that you need to become a good-enough email copywriter in 4 weeks or less.

Not only that…

You will also get to learn 3 mediums via which you can find 1000s of companies that you can write emails for… and how to get them to agree to work with you on either one-time contracts or monthly retainer contracts.

With one-time contracts, you get paid ONCE to work on a one-time project (e.g $500 dollars to write 10 emails).

And with monthly retainers, you get paid monthly to continually help these companies with ongoing email copywriting tasks (e.g getting paid $2K/month to write daily emails for a particular business).

Here’s the fact…

As an email copywriter, all you just need are 2 to 3 solid clients that provide repeat work opportunities, and you can pretty easily clock $2K/month.

And $2K these days is well over 800,000 Naira.

But there’s going to be work involved before you can get to the stage where you are doing easy $2K/month…

The good news is that ECT will help you shave a huge chunk off the learning curve.

Here’s What You Get Inside The ECT program:

The Email Copywriting Training – In this part of the program, you will get a 150-page guide plus over 12 hours of video lessons that explain basic to intermediate email copywriting concepts.

You will get real-life examples that explain each concept so that you 2X your understanding of these concepts.

The Client-getting Bundle – This is easily the meatiest part of the program.

It comprises a ton of video lessons, cheat sheets, templates, and resource files that will help you understand and simplify the process of scoring email copywriting clients.

You will be taught how to use platforms like Upwork, LinkedIn, and cold emails to reach out to clients that have email marketing needs in their businesses that you can fill.

The Client-closing Training – Will show you how to close the prospective clients that get on calls with you, without closing them (don’t worry, you will understand when you get inside the member’s area).

You will learn what discovery calls really are, so you don’t make the most common mistakes new and old freelancers make when they are on zoom and Skype calls with prospective clients.

The Email Handwriting Challenge – Seven days after the program kicks off, you will start to get in your inbox powerful emails written by A-list copywriters.

Your duty will be to copy these emails out by hand.

You will also get a video that explains the moves that are being made and why they are powerful.

This particular exercise will happen for 30 days.

And it will help you understand how to write powerful emails from a practical aspect rather than just boring theory.

When you add the bonuses worth N188,000 to these, you will find that everything has been set up to help you become a well-paid email copywriter in no time.

You really don’t need any experience to get started with this.

If you can slap simple sentences together, then you can start and succeed with this.

A lot of people are asking about creating an Upwork account.

The video I wanted to share with OyeniJK was a video I created for my private students.

And I didn't want to let it out into public view because I know there are many people who'd abuse it. They crawl into this thread, they are not here to learn but to look for resources they can package and sell.

I had that experience with my previous thread.

But those folks be darned... I have decided to drop a link to the video here:


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hWZybXWlyuI

If they like, let them steal it and go sell it for 2K. The money go still finish last, last.

So there you have it...

That video will show you how to get approved on Upwork. As at currently, it's getting accounts approved within just a matter of minutes.

One email copywriting client can change your life!


That's exactly what happened to Victor...

...the guy whose workshop you will partake in.

Here's how it happened....

He decided to start an online business in January 2014 as a 300L student of UNIBEN.

For starters, he tried selling information products in the form of short reports.

But try as hard as he may, things didn't really shift into high gear for him...

...this was mostly down to the fact that he was too broke to cough up funds for advertising.

He struggled badly. As in, "badly" with a B.

That struggle would fester, like a rotten wound, for a whopping TWENTY-SIX months (2+ years)!

But like an Olympian sprinter, he motored on; never looking back.

Then in February 2016, he found out that he could get paid to write emails for other companies.

And luckily for him, he had learned how to write marketing emails in all those 26 months of famine.

So he registered on a platform where foreign clients are known to hire email copywriters.

In exactly 6 days after starting out, he had his first client - a business owner from Singapore.

The guy paid him $120 to write 30 emails.

Writing emails for that one client changed everything.

The man really liked the emails Victor wrote, so he ushered his students to him.

And for the next 2 weeks, he fired away; writing emails of varying amounts for this man's students.

By the time the first 30 days were up in his new journey, he had pocketed $700+ and his first ever 100K+ Naira.

He has since moved on from writing 30 emails for $120 to routinely charging $3K – 5K/month to help companies and business owners like Vitaliv AS, Dr. Kamilah Stevenson, DeAnna Lorraine, Mike Gillette, etc, to write their daily marketing emails.

More impressively, he has taught over 400 young Africans how to become well-paid email copywriters. And many are doing great.

How’s all of that important to you?

Well, if the idea of meeting foreign clients that can pay you life-changing sums to write their emails sounds like a boat you’d love to glide in…

Who better to teach you how to do it than someone who has been doing this for over 5 years now with proven success?

And to teach you is exactly what Victor has done with his new virtual workshop

You should give it a watch and really pay attention to learn as much as you can.

Some years back, Victor opened a thread here on nairaland that went viral and changed a lot of lives.

I'll be bringing back that thread here to create more awareness for people who would like to take advantage of this life changing opportunity....
Re: How To €arn A Very Comfortable Living As A Well Paid Freelance Writer In 2022... by SnrBrother(m): 5:21am On Mar 23
Thread....

In case you are a bit befuddled with my choice of words in the topic of this thread, allow me to quickly clarify…


By “enviable income” I mean an income that is between $850 – $1000/month and all the way up to $3k/month!


I decided not to legibly slap any of those figures in the heading of this thread because the business section of NL is already drowning in such hyped up, bogus claims.


Also, stating that in the heading would give the wrong people a wrong impression about this thread.


I wouldn't want that.


With that bit of prattle out of the way, I welcome you once again to this thread.


My name is Victor.

In 2016, my Fiverr thread became a blessing to thousands of people…


Not because I shared anything special or magical, but it was because people were willing to LEARN and came in with open minds.


Here I am again…


I am going to offload some powerful information that has the potential to help you orchestrate an ENVIABLE income as an email copywriter.


I know I have previously tried to create other helpful threads since that 2016 thread and stopped halfway. But I promise to see this one all the way through.


What I will be showing you is how to become a really good email copywriter within the next 21 days so you can offer this skill as a service to STARVING businesses all around the world.


Now…


When a lot of people hear about copywriting their first thought is that "I have to be a badass writer to be a good copywriter."


I mean, it’s right there in the name!


You can take this to the bank, though…


The first and foremost SKILL you need to become a copywriter is NOT your writing skill.


What you mainly need is a mixture of CURIOSITY and a WILLINGNESS to read and read and read.


The reason is that the bulk of your copywriting work will happen at the research phase.


You research in-depth about a topic and that is when you are able to then construct simple sentences together to sell whatever it is you are selling based on the info you gathered from your research.

Fortunately for you, to crank out powerful emails for clients, you do not need to go through that much research.


But I am getting ahead of myself already.


We will dive into all of that meat in a bit.


The main thing I want you to know for now is that to become a successful copywriter, you don't have to possess Wole Soyinka levels of writing badassery.


You just have to be ready to do HARDCORE research.


If you think that is right up your alley, then I invite you to come with me on this incredible journey…
Re: How To €arn A Very Comfortable Living As A Well Paid Freelance Writer In 2022... by SnrBrother(m): 5:22am On Mar 23
THE SCOPE OF THIS THREAD:

I’m going to share the VARIOUS kinds of emails that clients need in droves and how to become good at writing these emails so you can offer them on Upwork, Fiverr and Freelancer.com.


Since 2017, I have taken a laidback approach to freelancing… because of other businesses I do, freelancing has been a part-time thing for me.


But for me, Upwork still remains the number 1 freelancing platform in the world.


Also, I’ve lately started to learn how to source for wayyyyy more deep-pocket clients outside of these freelancing platforms.


I am now looking at using email lists, ad campaigns, and LinkedIn to source for clients because I am in the middle of creating an agency.


My point is…


Whatever platform you choose to leverage on, what you are about to learn will work for you.


Whether you choose to source for clients on Upwork, or on Freelancer.com, or even outside of 'em platforms you are covered.


So for the next 2 – 3 weeks, I am going to drip feed you as much information as possible concerning this topic.


Some days you will get ONE lesson… and some other days you will get TWO lessons.


So strap yourself in and be ready to participate.


WHO IS THIS THREAD FOR?

This thread is perfect for you IF:

- You are tired of getting paid peanuts to write articles…
- You are already a freelancer looking for more lucrative skills to pounce on.
- You are a writer looking to earn from your skills…
- You are already a successful freelancer looking to branch into the writing field.

This will also work for you if you are NEW… but ONLY if you are ready to do your due diligence by putting in the HARD YARDS.

Re: How To €arn A Very Comfortable Living As A Well Paid Freelance Writer In 2022... by SnrBrother(m): 5:28am On Mar 23
LET’S DIVE IN…


Before I start any training at all, I like to talk about laying a solid foundation.


If you pay heed to the following and bring them to the table, you are giving yourself a good chance of succeeding with this training.


Firstly, not everyone who zips through the lessons and pages of this thread will make money with the information shared. It’s the truth.


While I’ll do my best to reveal everything as much as you need to get started, some people will read from page 1 to the last page and still fail with this. And that’s down to many factors.


The most common one being the FEAR to launch into the deep. i.e taking action.


You see, getting access to these lessons alone without putting into practice all that you learn is not enough to get results. Gaining knowledge is one thing and putting that knowledge into practice is quite another thing entirely.


So I am pleading with you, in order NOT to be among the percentage of people who will not make any headway with this, be ready to take action.


One of my FB friends once said: “An idiot who takes action is better than the genius who sits and thinks things through.”


So whatever you learn, in order to make it work, start taking action.


I can’t preach the importance of that enough.


Secondly, this thread on its own is not going to be the only thing you need.


While this will be chucked full with more than good-enough strategies to get you started and profitable as fast as possible, there are still other things you will need to learn that this thread may not have provided. There are other resources out there that you should also check out.


To even save costs you can make use of Google, Youtube, etc. But never stop learning and never stop improving.


Later on, I am also going to provide people you can learn from in a hands-on style on a daily basis. So be on the lookout.


Lastly, giving up shouldn’t be an option. Because this really works.


When you start out, things might be incredibly difficult for you. That is normal. A lot of things we start out as newbies need time to get used to.


But if on encountering a few difficulties, you decide to call it quits just a few weeks into your new business, then you may have missed a potentially great opportunity to carve out something sensational for yourself.


There is something called uninformed optimism…


It is the excitement people feel when they spot a new opportunity…


The brain picks up the signal that this is something that could benefit that person. It releases dopamine and gets the person optimistically excited about trying out this opportunity.


What happens to most people after this is that when they begin digging into this new opportunity, they start to see that work is actually required to succeed with it.


At this stage, their optimism starts to fade away…


Doubts start to creep in…


Fear shows its ugly face…


At this stage, the person is said to be experiencing informed pessimism.


From informed pessimism, they slip into the “valley of despair.”

This is the lowest of the lows.


...the nadir of the journey with this new thing.


It is at this stage that many, many people QUIT!


But those who persist and push through this phase will MOST likely start to see success.


They will get their first win.


With that win comes confidence.


Belief will come that “yes, I can do this.”


This stage is called informed optimism…
And that is why motivational speakers like to preach to you about never giving up. Because it aligns perfectly with how our brain treats new info.


Make of that little psychology lesson what you will.


That’s all for today.

WHAT IS COPYWRITING?

Now, we get into the meat and potatoes of this thread.

Don’t forget, the sole aim of this thread is to show you how to hone your email copywriting skill so you can start writing emails for clients and filling your bank account with moolah in the process.

Now, email copywriting is a smaller branch of the big bad guy COPYWRITING.

It’s like saying Benin City is a city under Edo State…

You feel me?

Before we swing fully into the email copywriting side of things, let’s run the rule over Copywriting in general.

This is especially important for you if you are new to all of this.

So… What really is copywriting?

Described as Gary Halbert, legendary copywriter, as the most lucrative skill in the world…

There are a thousand and one definitions out there on the internet about this topic.

But here is one that succinctly describes it best:

Copywriting is salesmanship in print.

And I’ll flesh that out with examples in a bit.

But before I do that, I’d also like to throw in my simple, dumbed-down definition:

“Copywriting is the kind of writing that is done to PROVOKE readers into taking an action.”

The action could be for them to click a link on an AD…

It could be to get them to subscribe to an EMAIL LIST…

It could also be to get them to click a link inside an email…

It could equally be to get them to buy whatever it is you are selling…

This kind of writing is different from writing to entertain people.

Okay, let’s go back to the first definition… that is the “salesmanship in print” definition.

Before the internet became a popular medium, one of the most popular ways of selling was via door-to-door campaigns.

The people who engaged in this practice were called salesmen.

And more often than not, they had a script they were trying to convince prospects from.

With the advent of the internet, this kind of selling was relegated to the background.

And now, with WORDS written on a page on the internet, anyone could reach a larger audience and make hundreds of thousands of dollars from selling their stuff.

Every online business needs copywriting.

And so people (copywriters) who can write words that CONVINCE people to whip out their wallets and buy whatever you are selling became hot properties.

There is something called direct response copywriting (that’s your assignment for today: Google this yourself and see what it means).

One of the highest direct response copywriters in the world, passed away just last month. His name was Clayton Makepeace. He used to make serious MILLIONS every year as a direct response copywriter!

Now, I have to let you know that a lot of the money Mr. Makepeace earned came from something called ROYALTIES.

That is, businesses pay him a pre-agreed amount for every sale the copy he wrote for them brought in.

That is discounting the original fee they paid for him to initially write their package (which is usually in the six figure dollars range).

Then there is Dan Kennedy – I think he is currently the #1 copywriter in the world right now that Mr. Makepeace has gone to rest.

Then there is this African-American lady, Carline Anglade-Cole, who makes at least $1M a year writing for clients as a copywriter (here is her website: carlinecole.com).

Then there is another guy called David Garfinkel who charges $25,000 for copywriting mentorship… and he charges businesses up to $100K to write their packages!

Now, why am I giving you all of these examples?

I just want to show you that putting in the work to become a great copywriter can be a very, very rewarding experience.

You may be wondering, why will businesses invest all these huge sums into one person to help them just sting common words together?

Well, imagine this…

If I paid you $100 to write one email for me…

And I send that email to my audience to sell them a $97 dollar product…

If that your one email brings in 10 sales, that makes up $970, right?

Now, I only paid you $100 to work your magic on my email.

Have I not now made a profit of $870?

That is how business owners think.

And that is why if you are DARN GOOD at what you do, they are ready to ‘chuck’ thick wads into your hands so you can write words that help them make money.


Now there are VARIOUS forms of copywriting out there:

AD copywriting – where you write ads for business owners. Ads like FB ads, instagram ads, Google ads, banner ads etc.

Email Copywriting – where you will help businesses write emails to sell their products to their EMAIL LIST.

Sales Letter Copywriting- Where you will write relatively long (7 pages and above) copies that are meant to sell a product on a WEB PAGE.

VSL Copywriting – VSL means Video Sales Letter. You will write video scripts for a video sales letter.

And so much more.

Now, you could decide to learn all these arms of copywriting in one fell swoop.

But the truth is, it’s going to take time, effort, and money to fully cut your teeth as a do-it-all copywriter.

So my simple advice to anyone trying to profit as a copywriter is to learn email writing first.

For me, it’s like the low-hanging fruit of copywriting.

Once you have a grasp of what ticks people… what emotions drive response… what people want to hear…

It becomes easier for you when you start moving up the ladder into mainstream copywriting.

I hope you understand this.

The whole essence of this particular lesson was to give you a sweeping view of copywriting and get you into the mind of a copywriter.

I don’t know if I have done a good job of it.

If I have not, I hope as we continue to progress you start to gain clarity.

But like I will always say, you can learn from various sources. So put your research skill into effect and start to gain clarity on what it means to become a copywriter.

Alternatively, you can post your hard-nosed questions as a comment below, and I’ll do my best to do much justice to it.

That’s all for now.

2 more lessons falling in today, once I have had the chance to edit them.

Stay tuned. Stay blessed.

Why Email Copywriting?

Since you now have a grasp of what Copywriting is all about…

Let’s now aim our focus at the email copywriting part of things.

So… Why Are We Focused on Email Copywriting?

I’ll tell you a short story to spell out the number one point for you…

When I started on Fiverr in 2016, the main gig I was selling was an email copywriting gig.

My first ever order was gotten from the buyer’s section of Fiverr…

And it was a project to write THIRTY EMAILS for $120!

I did that job to the best of my ability.

It took me 3 days of back-breaking work to complete and send my work to the client.

He went over it, marked the order as complete, and proceeded to give me a five-star review.

Not only that, He also referred his students to me. And over the next couple of weeks, I was busy writing emails for this man’s students.

Some wanted 30 emails…

Some wanted 18…

Others wanted 12…

And some others wanted just 7.

Pay attention, please.

Fast forward to 2017…

I got this particular project on Upwork…

Another THIRTY emails and this time I wrote each of them for $40 (that was in 2017. I no longer charge that amount per email).

This is just one project. Over N300K to write emails.

Guess how many weeks it took me to write these emails?

Less than 2 weeks.

In case you haven’t picked up on the point I am trying to make, here it is…

When clients want an email copywriter to do a job for them they are mostly going to hire you to write NOT one, two, or 3 emails.

90% of the time, you will be writing from at least 5 emails and above.

Imagine if your rate to write one email as a beginner is $25…

Are you starting to get the point?

The #1 reason I love email copywriting is that there is VOLUME in each project you undertake.

And volume means more money. Kapish?

The SECOND REASON I love email copywriting is because the learning curve is NOT as steep.

If you were going to learn to become a really good do-it-all copywriter, you’d need to pour in hours, weeks, and months of dedicated effort into it before you can have the confidence to start charging clients for your skills.

You will have to read classic copywriting books…

You will have to handwrite classic sales copy everyday…

You will have to tattoo a number of hard rules to your memory…

You will have to lap up a heap of formulas, frameworks, and so on.

Then maybe, later on, you’d have to engage the services of a mentor (and blast it! That doesn’t come cheap).

But if you decided to take a chip – email copywriting in this case, - out of the BIG BLOCK and focus on it, you won’t need months to get up to speed.

In as little as a month, you can become a really, really good email copywriter capable of helping clients literally print out money each time they send your emails to their list.

That’s another reason I love email copywriting – it doesn’t require much learning.

The THIRD reason is that emails are fun to write.

Unlike other forms of copywriting projects where you have to be guided in what you write, you can actually be informal with your emails.

You can have fun…

You could just decide to write about your day and at the end link in something for people to buy and they will.

They are also really easy to write once you get the hang of it.

These days, I can crank out a winning email in less than 25 minutes (I hope that doesn’t make me sound like a braggart).

The FOURTH reason is that…

There is a constant demand for email copywriting work.

Take a stroll to the job feed of Upwork right now (if you have an Upwork account) and type in “email copywriting” or “email copywriter” and observe the job feed.

Or go on Craigslist and do the same.

People are always looking for badass email copywriters to help them squeeze out as much profits as possible from their lists.

So if you jump in, you are going to be jumping into a market that is really HOT.

Another reason I love this is that you can do this without a LAPTOP.

Yes, unlike most other services you can render that require you to have a laptop, becoming an email copywriter doesn’t hold you to that rule.

Just download WORD DOCS and GOOGLE DOCS on your phone and you are ready to blast off.

There are many more reasons why I love email copywriting. But these should give you a glimpse of some of the main benefits of email copywriting and why I think it makes sense to jump on it.

Breakdown of How You Could Do At Least $1K As An Email Copywriter Every Month...

Now the main goal of this thread is to get you to $1K/month as an email copywriter as soon as possible.

To help you achieve that, I will be sharing templates and other resources soon.

But before that, I want to give you a breakdown of an easy-to-follow $1K/month plan as an email copywriter.

So, as a beginner…

Let’s say you start on a platform like Upwork and start charging between $20 - $45 per email depending on your confidence level and depending on what clients' assent to pay for your service (some clients are just difficult to convince).

What that means is that…

To do $1K/month, you need to write like 60 emails on average (considering the Upwork service fee).

Let’s also assume that for each project you get to write 5 emails on average…

That’d mean you only need 12 email copywriting jobs per month to hit $1K.

If we go further ahead to break down the month into weeks, that would mean you need to do $250 every week to meet your goal.

That also means all you need is just 3 email copywriting jobs per week to hit your $1K/month goal.

Does that make sense?

Do you think doing $250/week is feasible?

Now, this is not set in stone that your earning will follow this pattern exactly.

But planning like this and breaking it down into bits is incredibly powerful. It gives you clarity on what to do each day, each week to hit your goal.

BOOM! That was the introductory part of this thread.

So here is what you need to start making money as an email copywriter:

~ A phone, tablet, or PC…
~ An ability to string simple words together.
~ A freelancing account on any freelancing platform of your choice.

And that’s all.

In a couple of days’ time, I will post more lessons that focus more on honing this skill.

As always, stay tuned, stay blessed… and ask questions if you need clarity.

/Peace, Love, & Light/

In this short post, you will gain a bit more clarity on what it is… and what it is not.

So, what really is ECT about?

It’s a program – more than just a course – that installs in you basic to intermediate tactics, techniques, and tricks that you need to become a good-enough email copywriter in 4 weeks or less.

Not only that…

You will also get to learn 3 mediums via which you can find 1000s of companies that you can write emails for… and how to get them to agree to work with you on either one-time contracts or monthly retainer contracts.

With one-time contracts, you get paid ONCE to work on a one-time project (e.g $500 dollars to write 10 emails).

And with monthly retainers, you get paid monthly to continually help these companies with ongoing email copywriting tasks (e.g getting paid $2K/month to write daily emails for a particular business).

Here’s the fact…

As an email copywriter, all you just need are 2 to 3 solid clients that provide repeat work opportunities, and you can pretty easily clock $2K/month.

And $2K these days is well over 800,000 Naira.

But there’s going to be work involved before you can get to the stage where you are doing easy $2K/month…

The good news is that ECT will help you shave a huge chunk off the learning curve.

Here’s What You Get Inside The ECT program:

The Email Copywriting Training – In this part of the program, you will get a 150-page guide plus over 12 hours of video lessons that explain basic to intermediate email copywriting concepts.

You will get real-life examples that explain each concept so that you 2X your understanding of these concepts.

The Client-getting Bundle – This is easily the meatiest part of the program.

It comprises a ton of video lessons, cheat sheets, templates, and resource files that will help you understand and simplify the process of scoring email copywriting clients.

You will be taught how to use platforms like Upwork, LinkedIn, and cold emails to reach out to clients that have email marketing needs in their businesses that you can fill.

The Client-closing Training – Will show you how to close the prospective clients that get on calls with you, without closing them (don’t worry, you will understand when you get inside the member’s area).

You will learn what discovery calls really are, so you don’t make the most common mistakes new and old freelancers make when they are on zoom and Skype calls with prospective clients.

The Email Handwriting Challenge– Seven days after the program kicks off, you will start to get in your inbox powerful emails written by A-list copywriters.

Your duty will be to copy these emails out by hand.

You will also get a video that explains the moves that are being made and why they are powerful.

This particular exercise will happen for 30 days.

And it will help you understand how to write powerful emails from a practical aspect rather than just boring theory.

When you add the bonuses worth N188,000 to these, you will find that everything has been set up to help you become a well-paid email copywriter in no time.

You really don’t need any experience to get started with this.

If you can slap simple sentences together, then you can start and succeed with this.

A lot of people are asking about creating an Upwork account in the DM.

The video I wanted to share with OyeniJK was a video I created for my private students.

And I didn't want to let it out into public view because I know there are many people who'd abuse it. They crawl into this thread, they are not here to learn but to look for resources they can package and sell.

I had that experience with my previous thread.

But those folks be darned... I have decided to drop a link to the video here:




https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hWZybXWlyuI

If they like, let them steal it and go sell it for 2K. The money go still finish last, last.

So there you have it...

That video will show you how to get approved on Upwork. As at currently, it's getting accounts approved within just a matter of minutes.

UNDERSTANDING EMAIL MARKETING…

So far, we have been able to cover the baseline of copywriting as a whole.

By now, you already know that email copywriting is a branch of copywriting.

And I consider it to be the low-hanging fruit when it comes to profiting from copywriting.

Now, if you are to become a successful email copywriter, it is imperative for you to understand what email marketing is.

What is Email Marketing?

Here is Wikipedia's definition:

Email marketing is the act of sending a commercial message, typically to a group of people, using email. In its broadest sense, every email sent to a potential or current customer could be considered email marketing. It involves using email to send advertisements, request business, or solicit sales or donations
.

So for every online business or online marketer to successfully use email marketing in their businesses they need to build an email LIST.

It is to this list they will send the emails you write for them.

Now, what is an email list?

Simply, it is a collection of people's contact details usually a name and an email address. Or just simply an email address.

Let’s take Jumia for example…

When you want to register on their platform they collect your contact details not so?

They will then add these collected details to their database where they can easily reach you over and over again.

Now…

For most online businesses, the way they are able to create this database is through ESPs.

That means Email Service Providers. Or you can also call them Autoresponders.

You don’t have to bother yourself with all of these because we are NOT going into mainstream email marketing.

Most clients won’t bother you with all of that once they know your specialty is just to write emails.

But if you are up for it, you can decide to find out more about these things to broaden your knowledge; it’d make you an expert and give you confidence when talking to clients.

For now, though, some of the most popular ESPs that clients use a lot are:

Getresponse.com

Aweber.com

Convertkit.com

Klaviyo.com (this one is made specially for eCommerce business owners).

Sendlane.com

And many, many more.

So when clients collect people’s details, they will store their names into the databases they create on any of these platforms and that will become their EMAIL LIST.

Generally, the bigger the email list, the more profit a client can expect.

SO HERE IS THE SECRET…

Coming up with fresh content to send to your email list can be very hectic.

And that is why BUSY CLIENTS like to outsource that aspect to an email copywriter.

And that is why they’ll be ready to hire YOU.

Know this, you will become very important to their business…

Because you will be helping them eke out sales after sales from their email list. So you have to feel like an important part of your client’s business.

Always remember this: THEY NEED YOU MORE THAN YOU NEED THEM.

That kind of confidence – especially when you have become good at your craft – will help you not sound desperate when it comes to working with clients.

It will help you charge what you are truly worth.

And it’d also help you say NO when the deal is NOT fair.

QUICKLY, HERE ARE SOME BUSINESSES THAT USE EMAIL MARKETING:

Online Course Creators –People who create courses online to sell their knowledge use email marketing a lot. And a good number of them will need email copywriters.

Online Coaches/Consultants – Very similar portfolio to the above.

Ecommerce Stores – This is a KILLER industry right now. Every day, more and more businesses are setting up online shops to sell their physical products. And many of them are beginning to understand the powerful of email marketing. So once they set up their email marketing platforms, they need content to blast out to their lists… so the demand for ecommerce email copywriters is sky-high right now.

(NOTE: In few days’ time, I will send you 97 DFY emails in the eCommerce niche that will get you up to speed with how eCommerce emails look like).

SAAS – “Service As a Software” businesses also use email marketing and would need email copywriters.

Basically, EVERY type of online business use email marketing, and they mostly need email copywriters to wring out as much profits from their list.

So you can decide to write for all of ‘em or choose a particular one and SPECIALIZE in writing for those types of businesses.

These types of businesses are available in their thousands both right here in Nigeria and even abroad. So start looking around.

Also, I will later scratch the surface of how you can find these kinds of businesses on Upwork.

P.S. Kindly ignore any typos. I am racing against time.
