I've been lurking through Warrior Forums for ~three years from the time I first got started in affiliate marketing (niche blogging + article marketing = Clickbank sales) and I just became a paying member today.
Here's my basic story: I have extensive writing experience in a variety of a professional capacities and have recently become interested in the notion of freelancing. (Perhaps I should mention that I am a recent college graduate in my low 20s incredibly turned off by the idea of working from 9-5 for a job I can lose at a moment's notice.)
I created an account on Elance a month ago and have achieved some moderate success, glowing feedback, and slowly increasing business. I set up a personal website today from where I'll be managing the freelance writing that is presently keeping me comfortably afloat. But it has become abundantly clear that copywriting is where the real money is to be made, and I'm here on WF looking for opportunities to put my skills to the test.
Can anyone provide me with direction for how to get started as a copywriter? I'm able to support myself from my other freelance work for the time being, so time is not an issue. I have time. I'm also confident that I have the research skills, witing ability and perseverance neccesary to be a successful copywriter.
I'm here looking for some tips and pointers from those who were in my place sometime in the past and are now looking back from higher rungs on the ladder
Thanks so much!
