Since leaving the paper I have worked primarily in sales, but in the back of my mind there was always the thought of making my living as a copywriter. Last November I suffered a brown recluse spider bite and could no longer function selling suits for JC Penney. I simply could not stand for any length of time.
While recovering I found AWAI's website and subscribed to their "Accelerated Program For Six-Figure Copywriting". I am well over halfway through with the course and know I can write effective and persuasive copy for businesses. I would especially like to write for spas and resorts as this is something I have a passion for, so this is my main desire.
I have a website (hallofwords.com), I've written several articles and posted the on ezinearticles.com and started doing some social marketing on facebook. I'm going to continue to do these things and the next thing I thought I'd tackle is actively contacting resorts and spas to try to drum up some business that way.
I'm just not sure what questions I should ask to get my foot in the door. If anybody has any suggestions I would sure like to hear them.
