How I Wrote 4 Emails For My US Client Charging $400 by FunnyDude(m): 11:33am On Sep 22, 2023
I started working as an email Copywriter late last year for one of my client, he approached me and that's how I discovered the hidden goldmine I'm about to reveal.

Did you know you can be charging $100 per email?

Let me show you how:

When it comes to email copywriting, there are two main types of emails:

1. Short, e-com-style, branding-heavy emails with images.

2. Longer, text-based ones with no images.

To earn well as an email copywriter, the #2 is far more lucrative.

Here’s why, and here’s what their purpose is:

If your intention is to send the reader to a landing page – the email should be very short.

Why? Because the page will do the selling.

Your only aim is to get the reader to click and land on the page.

For these, you can charge $50-150.

Their purpose is to sell the click.

If your intention is to send the reader to a landing page – the email should be very short.

Why? Because the page will do the selling.

Your only aim is to get the reader to click and land on the page.

For these, you can charge $50-150.

Their purpose is to sell the click.

If your intention is to sell IN the email, the email should be longer.

Why? Because it should include pain points, social proof, a guarantee, a close, and an FAQ section.

Think of this email as a sales page.

For these, you can charge more than $100.


Okay, let's continue with the 7 tips:

1. Write every day.

This might sound very basic, but it’s crucial.

If you want to become an email copywriter, and you want to do it FAST...

You have to commit to writing daily.

There's no other way around it.


2. Be concise.

The general rule of email copywriting is this:

Use short and snappy sentences.

Example:

“People tend to overcomplicate stuff with long-winded sentences, chock-full of fancy words, which is a big no-no when writing copy to sell.”

That’s a long-winded sentence.

It can be broken down into three short and snappy ones:

“People tend to overcomplicate stuff with long-winded sentences.

They fill them with fancy words.

That’s a big no-no when writing copy.”


3. Choose a niche.

When you’re just starting out...

It’s normal to want to get more experience in different industries.

But over time, you’d like to pick a niche.

Why?

Because you can position yourself as a “Health Email Copywriter” or an “Email Copywriter for the Travel Niche”.

Specializing in a niche also comes with a few perks:
- Having more expertise.
- Not needing to do research all the time.
- Commanding higher fees –> $100+ per email.


4. Know your audience by studying the greats.

Selling a product that helps people lose weight?

Your target audience is people who are overweight.

Selling a service that helps people become better copywriters?

Your target audience is beginner copywriters.

The best way to know your audience is to do research.

Best way to do research?

Study good email copy in the industry you’re interested in.

Whatever the niche:
- Find the best companies
- Sign up for their newsletters
- Buy their products
- And study their email marketing.

5. Nail the subject line.

Much like the headline is the important element of a sales page...

The subject line is the most important element of an email.

So, if you don’t nail the subject line, your subscribers won’t open the email.

They won’t click on the links.

And you won’t make any sales.


6. Have one CTA.

One of the most common mistakes in email copy?

Having CTA buttons that ask the reader to do different things:
- Buy a product
- Follow you on social
- Sign up for a newsletter

Most users WON'T click on any of your links if you give them too many options.

7. Tell a story.

People love stories. And that’s for a good reason.

We’ve been using stories since the olden days.

According to Statista:

Engaging and compelling storytelling is the second most important factor in email copy success...

Just after audience relevance.

Now, you know what it takes to become a copywriter who charges $100+ per email.

A lot of people are kind of lazy to research what will put food on their table. All they know is job, job and job.

Why can't you be creative as a graduate that you call yourself.

I shared how I wrote 4 emails for a foreigner and charged him $400 ($100 per email).


Guess what?

I do this for about 5 other clients monthly, do the maths.

I'm a 2.2 graduate too, but I quickly skilled up in 2018 to avoid financial wilderness.

Go to Upwork, yes UPWORK jobs are being posted every seconds.

Question is, do you have the skill to get those jobs?

Food for thought.

# 7 Tips to Get *Great* High-Paying Clients

I've landed $10,000 projects and have worked with *7-, 8-, and 9-figure brands*.

So, you can say I know a thing or two about how to get clients.

In today's post, I'll show you how to do the same.

Let's dive in:


**1. Join Facebook (job) boards. **

I got my first clients through Facebook groups.

You have two options here:
* Join groups where your ideal clients hang out. Provide value. And start conversations.
* Use Facebook job boards to apply for gigs. Just MAKE SURE to send personalized messages.

Here's an example of a personalized message:

"*Hey, X, *

*I read [something you found valuable on their profile/website]. *

*I [say what you found valuable]. Great job! *

*Also, I'm applying for [X]. *

*Here's a link to my samples [link]. *

*Looking forward to helping you [mention something in the job description]*!"



**2. Don't work for free. **

Saying you'll do the project for free positions you in a bad light.

If you really have no other choice, say:

"*I'll do this for free in exchange for a testimonial*."

If they don't agree, that's a big red flag.

Move to the next prospect.



**3. Build your personal brand. **

Facebook. Instagram. Twitter. LinkedIn. TikTok. YouTube.

No matter the medium, you can land clients on any platform.

Just make sure to:
* Be authentic
* Show your expertise
* Entertain (people like fun)

This approach takes time.

But it gets you the BEST clients.



**4. You don't need a website.**

I have a website. But I haven't used it in years.

The only thing you need to land clients is a Google doc with samples.

If you can add some stats on your copy - even better.

*PRO TIP*: Make your portfolio stand out by having a short resume of your skills and why the client should work with you on top of the Google doc you share with them.

Here's an example:

"*Hi, [name],*

*You can call me X for short [if your name is long and complicated].*

*Below, you’ll find my recent portfolio.*

*Before that, I wanted to share a few benefits of working with me:*
1. *Reason 1 - [Something about being punctual, deadlines, etc.]*
1. *Reason 2 - [Are you fun to work with? Say it]*
1. *Reason 3 - [Come up with your own reasons]*

*Now, to verify I don’t (secretly) suck, here are a few of my recent samples:*

*[Link to your samples]*"



**5. Qualify your prospect. **

As much as biz owners qualify you...

You WANT to qualify them, too.

If they:

❌Don't want to pay upfront

❌Want you to work crazy hours

❌Don't respect your vacation days or weekends

Or something equally crazy...

They WON'T be a great client.

So, stay away from such prospects.



**6. Have a contract. **

Newbies start working without a contract or agreement.

And they get into trouble.

Don't be like them.

Have a contract or an email that stipulates:
* Upfront payments
* Number of copy reviews
* Deliverables and deadlines


**7. Have one *specific *offer.**

To land great clients, don't say you're gonna write all kinds of copy.

Focus on 1-2 deliverables.

For example, emails or VSLs.

Why?

Because in this way, you come across as an expert...

And can command HIGHER fees.


And that's a wrap.

With these 7 tips, you can now get *great, high-paying* clients.


P.S $1 is now NGN 1,100 cheesy
