Of course, the fact that I love it hardly makes it seem like work. When I started offering copywriting on the forum, I was one of those people you'd love to hate, doing sales letters for $97. I had been working for multi-million dollar companies in the past writing copy for them but couldn't use that work in an online portfolio. So I started really low to get an influx of writing projects in several different areas so that I didn't have to box myself in to one specific niche.
I've got some samples up online if you'd like to read some to see "where I'm coming from". Those are examples of the $97 sales letters.
Now I realize some of the people who paid $97 will think I'm staying at that rate forever - and there's just no way that's going to happen now, not with all the research and work that goes on behind the scenes. Copywriters know it's more than just putting fingers to keys...it's about psychology, flow, marketing, emotion and so on.
My question is then, how do I take my copywriting business to the next level? I don't want to forever be pinned as "the cheap copywriter" but it seems like a lot of people who frequent the WSO forum are just looking for dirt cheap deals (and they're furious when they see they've been had!).
Of course I can write a WSO that would knock your socks off but I seriously doubt there have been any high ticket service sells in the forum here. At the same time, I do want to help marketers who are looking to seriously build their business and pay a fair price, and I know they come here.
I wonder if I'm the only one here who has the hardest time marketing myself but no problem selling for anyone else?
