But if you're ever in a bind it does work.
I don't claim to have invented this, finding work on CL is nothing new, but here's a way to make it easier...
Again, nothing new or groundbreaking, but there's plenty of work out there...
The trick is pre-qualifying the clients you want to work for and then convincing them to hire you..
With this set up you've got instant access to jobs being posted 24/7... So if you're a good copywriter you should be able to land as much work as you need.
I want to reiterate the pre-qualifying... There are a lot of bargain hunters out there so look for the serious companies that value good copy.
Hope that helps someone out.
P.S. Don't go too crazy with this, I'm sure you can get your IP blocked for sending out too many messages. I've sent probably 10-15 in a day before with no problems, but there's no implied warranty here. Don't spam, selectively target the jobs you're interested in and write an email from scratch, you *should* be okay.
