Here's what I'm up too and here's what I'm looking for.
I've built a nice little seven figure sales business in the investing niche.
However in the bigger picture I'd like to teach people how they can achieve their own version of the American dream online.
But - here is my issue.
The investing niche is very much like the IM niche in that once your accepted into "the club" you pretty much have to be a moron not to make money -and I've been, thankfully, accepted by a decent enough number of "club" members to make money, sometimes I'm sure even in spite of myself.
So - for me to feel comfortable telling people "Hey I'm a guy who can help you do this", I need to build at least a six figure sales business in a niche I'm not really known in.
One of my worst nightmares would be to have my kids google the old man and have a bunch of people saying he's a crook who doesn't know what the hell he's doing...
So that's why I'm kinda starting from scratch in a new niche.
I've done a good deal of research on niches and have come up with one in the health care niche that I plan to get a product produced for and release on Clickbank.
So here's what I'm looking for.
A new(ish) hungry copywriter with a few proven winners behind them. Ideally two or three, it would be great if it was in a health niche.
I want someone who is serious about becoming a professional copywriter, someone ideally who is working with a professional mentor and plans to be around 20 years from now.
In other words you understand that copywriting, just like IM, is a serious business and you take your business as seriously as I take mine.
I've heard that when people post for writers here the response can be pretty overwhelming, and I hope to not have a flood of replies, just the right ones.
You do need to have, in addition to your samples, strong recommendations, be it from past clients or your coach, ideally both.
In fact in my perfect world what will happen is that a well respected writer like Hans, Matt James, Daniel, Vin, Ross, Ray, Mike Humphrey etc etc (I'm leaving folks off, but I think you get the idea) will PM me and tell me hey you really should check this guy or gal out, in fact the person who gets the job will most likely have those type of references.
So if you don't, I know what it's like to be young and struggling, but keep working to get them -if your determined to make it in this business you will get them, but let's not waste a ton of each other's time if you know you won't qualify.
I'm a pretty good copywriter myself, in fact I'm often offered $3000/$4000 to write copy - not at the A -level for sure, but decent. One well known guru once offered me $10K, but in his defense it was 3am and he'd been drinking since 4pm..so I don't know how serious the offerer was.
But the point is that I'm a serious business owner, and I will make sure this project is successful. You will be working with someone who knows what good copy looks like, and someone who will do everything in his power to make sure this is a winner you can put in your portfolio.
I promise not to butcher your copy, and I will use what you come up with on the page unedited - but understand we will work together a good bit to come up with that.
My budget for the project is $1500/$2000.
I look forward to discussing this with you.
I plan to get started on this project in the middle of September, early October at the latest.
