Anyone in this niche?

Hey guys,

Is anyone in the copywriting niche for renewable/alternative energy? How did you land your first client and what are the typical projects in that niche?

    I wrote a lot of clean energy content. I created blog posts, email sequences, and even industry events reviews. I worked with small and big companies. I wrote for installation companies, non-profit organizations, and governmental organizations as well.

    I landed my first client with Fiverr. Otherwise, I used Facebook Ads, cold emailing, and social media marketing. I also asked my current clients to refer me.

    Expect to write anything from tweets to case studies.

    I wrote web copy, email marketing content, and brochures.

    You'll also need to research on legal issues surrounding clean energy, watch out for industry news as they happen, and understand the difference between solar energy technologies.

    It's a fascinating niche to be writing for.

      Thanks a lot expont! There just seemed to be no info online about this niche so I was just curious if it's a valid niche at all lol. Were all of your projects on this niche from fiverr or did you get some offline clients?

        Not only valid but lucrative.

        You must take massive action. For example:

        You must let clients know you exist and you can provide value to them.

        At some point, I had to go out and find solar energy companies in my area and surrounding areas to pitch them.

        I got a few clients that way. By simply showing up, by asking for work, and by being there.

        Granted, I had to show them my previous work so I can build trust.

        It's not impossible. It takes guts tho...

        Don't wait for clients to find you, go to them.

    It's a super competitive industry. I started 12 years ago. I really don't know how people can break into the market when there hundreds of thousands of them are available in India. Don't get me wrong. I know you are specialised. But even that niche is over-fished by those countries.
