I've been reading these forums long before I joined and have found the information here invaluable.
Hopefully I can find some more help now as well.
I am looking for a proven copywriter experienced in the men's dating niche and would really appreciate any advice on who the best person for the job would be.
I know there are a number of really good copywriters on this forum also, so feel free to get in touch as well.
13 Week Online Study Course for a sub-market within the Men's Dating Niche
Very extensive and comprehensive product. Collectively taken about 32 months to produce all the components. Some features include multiple videos and a ground breaking online forum experience.
Large JV launch with many of the biggest names in the niche involved.
Auto-responder email sequence needed to create "buzz" and anticipation during the 12 day pre-launch
High converting sales letter and landing page needed
High converting sales video script/outline needed and assistance with optimisation of pre-launch content
Tight but manageable depending on current commitments. Pre-launch is 27th October and Launch is 7th November.
Now I know there is often controversy with commission based projects in the copywriting world, but please bare with me.
Many good and renown copywriters have taken on commission only jobs if it is the right project. I know Alex Cohen is a pretty well respected copywriter and did a percentage of sale only partnership about a year ago, so it can work under the right circumstances.
The biggest issue is risk right?
Is a talented copywriter willing to take on the risk of commission only when so many factors other than effective copy affect the bottom line sales?
Before I answer that, indulge my vision for just a little longer.
This launch is not a standalone launch for a product and a one-time payout. It is not a get rich quick project. I am building a sustainable business, and this launch is the start of what we anticipate will be a 6 maybe 7 figure business.
Within the long term business model there will many more copywriting projects as we serialise the content from this product to make multiple other products, seminars, ebooks, DVD's, coaching programmes etc etc.
I am looking for a partnership.
A copywriter that me and my partners can enter into a long term mutually beneficial relationship with.
So back to the risk.
If I am asking you to take the risk of commission only, as partners it's only healthy for the relationship that my partners and I take a similar or greater risk right?
Well, developing the software for the online forum took 18 months.
Creating the content for this course has taken the better part of 14 months. The content has been reworked and rewritten countless amount of times so that it can deliver the very best value to the clients.
We have tested and probed the market to uncover this niche and create a product that the market is screaming out for. And because of this my partners and I have already invested countless hours of our time, effort and opportunity cost (we all have other businesses), to create something that we know has the potential to be highly successful.
I have personally been working 18hour days for the last month on this project alone.
So all that being said the compensation to the copywriter would be 10% Commission of Gross Sales. I know some commission is based on net profit, which I think is ridiculous as my ability to manage my expenses and costs should have no impact on your compensation.
I am aware that a good copywriter can charge between $10k-$20k for the above work but based on a 10% of Gross the copywriter can potentially make $50k from this project.
So there you have my (lengthy) request. Thanks for taking the time to read it and if you could recommend anyone you feel that would be suitable for such a project please get in touch.
Additionally any advice would be greatly appreciated.
