Quite Possibly the Most Boring Sales Pitch for Writing Ever Witnessed
Share on: 
fb share twitter share gplus share more share

Paralysis by Analysis is what I've been suffering from for the last few days as I've procrastinated over what to charge for my article writing service and whether to even try...

Taking Action is what I'm now doing..

I'm not the best salesman in the world (I guess if I was I'd be advertising Copywriting instead), so I'll just dive in.

About me
- UK 'Born and Bred'.
- Privately educated (that doesn't affect my literacy, just putting it in for background).
- Degree level education.
- Living in Canada for the last 5 years.
- Family man with 2 kids.
- Work in IT (Middle Management).

Why I'm doing this
- To earn some extra money.
- To see if I can.
- To for long lasting relationships with other Internet Entrepreneurs.
- To earn some extra money :-)

What I can write
- Pretty much anything I hope.

What I can't write about
- Anything at a level that requires hours of actual learning - e.g. Medical, Law (unless it's about Ally McBeal), Engineering etc.
- Adult (unless it's about Ally McBeal..).

What I'm offering

I'll be a little less formal here..

I'm offering to write well researched articles (500 words and up) for the price of 5c per word.

I know, I know - that is probably higher than what most people charge on here, but after working out the time involved in research, writing and proofreading - that's just simply the lowest I can go.

If you're still reading, you're still interested I guess..

So here's the deal.

I will do 3 FREE review copies (500 words each) for the first 3 people (with more than 50 posts) who reply to this thread. I'm hoping your glowing reviews will lead to my early retirement in the sun somewhere..

Thanks for looking

EDIT: - Just to add - for any potential customers.
If anybody decides to purchase after the review articles, I will need payment up front. Sorry, I know that may put some people off (particularly from a newbie like myself), but hopefully you'll trust me enough to give me a go..
