Finding clients for email copywriting

11 replies
Hello, I'm looking for some ideas.

I do email copywriting, both retainers and sales/campaigns. I'm going after folks who hate or avoid emailing their lists, but I'm not sure where to find these folks other than contacting folks directly as I come across them.

I've written a special report on emailing frequently and why you need to do it, and I'd like to get it into as many hands as possible. Any ideas for places with lots of eyeballs? I've thought of FB and LI groups, but I feel like there are a ton of places not on my radar.

Can I link to that report on this post?

Thank you,
Melody

    No - promotional links aren't allowed in posts. But you could pay a nominal fee for a sig file and link to your report in that. Then if you engage in discussions about email marketing and copywriting, perhaps you'll attract some interested parties. Can't hurt.

    Have you tried listing your services on sites like freelancer.com? Do you have a website featuring examples of your work?

    Blogging would be ideal because you can geo target a specific audience using keywords .

    A face book fan page would help as well because you can geo target as well .

    Hello Melody!

    It can't hurt to try multiple platforms such as Facebook and Instagram, as well as listing your services on Freelancer or Upwork. However, if you are looking for new avenues you could try Hivebrite or Polywork. They are great for networking and finding other professionals to collaborate with.

    Hope this helps! Good luck.

    Here are a few ideas for you:

    1. Start with your network (people you know).

    2. Reach out to past clients.

    3. Reach out to existing clients.

    4. Reach out to your service providers.

    5. Partner with agencies.

    6. Grow your profile on job sites (Fiverr, Upwork, etc).


    It only takes one to two clients to gain those initial testimonials. After that, it gets easier.

    Best of luck!

    I think you'd have better results with business owners who already email their lists. I've found those who "hate" mailing their list are afraid of annoying the readers and getting unsubscribes in response. These folks are afraid of mailing their list more than once a month. And they're established businesses!

    Now people who don't like to write, or can't think of interesting content...that's a strong possibility.

    I would go into The Coaching Jungle (coaching group on FB), and write daily posts on how and why emailing your list more frequently matters and is effective (get the people who already agree with you). Talk about the problems of coming up with interesting content and not being repetitive. Give case studies & examples, removing names. Show them what you do and how you do it. Do not make an offer. Do not message people. That'll get you kicked out of this group and most other groups. Wait for people to approach you--they will.

    A place where you * can * go make an offer is the Nothing Held Back Job Group (also on FB). The originating NHB is the best agency group I've seen, and the best group on FB that I've encountered in 10+ years. It is FULL of agency & ecommerce business owners who would like email copy & sequence help. The NHB Job Board is the place where you can post your ad. There are format guidelines in the group rules. Better you join both NHB and the NHB Job Board so you can see what is going on. The topics are advanced. I see writers winning jobs in there all the time. You had better be able to get results ;-)

    Hello, how are all of you doing?

    I would say to post it on all social media, and just like you are on this forum try and google search forums that are specifically in copywriting as there should be a few out there.

    You could also consider posting in the warrior forum marketplace if you're looking for clients. As for places to giveaway your ebook, you could consider a couple of subreddits on Reddit.com or some Facebook groups that allow you to post free stuff.

    Also, you can go the route of using free ebook sites to giveaway your stuff, Amazon.com if you want to kindle it, or sites like slideshare or docshare... stuff like that to get your stuff out there.

    I may not have checked all of these since they're off the top of my head... but I'm sure they will still work today.

    I was also going to suggest the signature in the bottom of your forum posts. But someone else got to that already LOL.

    Hope this helps.

    Hello, how is everyone doing?

    The suggestions everyone has suggested are really good ideas. Also, have you tried Solo Ads? They work great! You just have to make sure whomever you get the solo ads from ask them do they provide traffic in your Niche. This is so important, because you don't want to buy solo ads from someone who doesn't provide high quality clicks in what you are promoting so always keep that in mind when purchasing them.

    Have you thought about using your services through places like Fivver...clients actually come find you and the services you are providing. Wether that be copywriting or email writing for those who find it challenging to write on their own emails. I have used services from fivver before but it was for a totally different purpose. Look into gettnig a placement on Fivver...to offer your services...it may be profitable for you. Just a suggestion
