Remote Copywriter- Why should anyone care about copywriters making extra money? It’s a simple question with a very complicated answer. When you break it down, it’s really quite simple. People don’t buy anything from a copywriter because… They Don’t Know You Are An Expert! But, once they find out you are an expert… That Changes Everything!

When people find out you are an expert copywriter, they will pay attention to every word you write. They will scrutinize your website with a hawk’s eye looking for hidden persuasiveness. If they find any at all, they will pounce on it like a tiger on a gazelle. And, if they are sufficiently persuaded, they will give you their hard-earned money. The choice is theirs and theirs alone. Do you think you are an expert copywriter? If so, you need to read this entire letter and do the exercise I have provided for you.

If you think you aren’t an expert copywriter, then you are sadly mistaken. You Are Too Close To The Subject Matter To Know How Bad You Really Are!

How do you get started if you don’t have a product or service to sell yet? In this issue, we’ll cover everything you need to know to get your product or service seen and purchased by a remote audience.

1. Set Your Goals

If you want to become a freelance copywriter and make $25K-$50K per month as a remote copywriter, you need to set goals. This article will help you figure out how to achieve your goal. So, why is it important to set goals? Because it helps you plan your strategy.

2. Find your Niche

Finding your niche is the first step in making serious money as a copywriter. Once you find your niche, the next step is to become the authority on that subject. This will put you in a position to charge high fees and make huge commission checks.

3. Do Keyword Research

Ah, keyword research. The most overrated yet most-despised part of any copywriter’s job. People don’t understand how much time it really takes to do it right. They’ve been taught (mostly by copywriters who themselves don’t know how to do it) that if they use a few simple tools like Word’s “Sentiment” or “Analyze” and toss their results into a magic bucket labeled “Keywords,” then they can skip this important step. That couldn’t be further from the truth. If you aren’t doing keyword research properly, you are literally putting your website at risk. Here’s why: people type words into search engines all the time without even thinking about what they’re searching for. So, what happens is, the search engine picks up on those words (called “buzz words” or “popular words”) and gives more weight to websites which use those same words (or “similar words”) often. In other words, the search engine assumes you are using those words because they are important to your site and, therefore, it gives your site a boost in the rankings.

4. Build your Audience

If you have a product or service that you feel could benefit a lot of people, then building an audience for that product or service can be extremely lucrative. The reason why this is true is because your audience will be paying you for your content. The only difference between this and any other kind of work is that they are doing it for free.

5. Write Content That Converts

If your content is good and you have a good message to tell, you’re going to get people to respond. You don’t need fancy tools or clever techniques to do this. All you need to do is write content that is designed to be shared. And by sharing, we mean putting it out there and letting people share it.

6. Create an Amazing Product

But what about creating a product? Do we need to create an amazing product? No! A product can be average and still be successful. People don’t expect perfection, but they do expect a product to work well, solve a problem, be reliable, and have enough features to make the purchase worthwhile. That’s really all you need to create an amazing product.

7. Get Your Book Published

For anyone who wants to be a writer, you must first get your book published, then you can start writing. If you are a copywriter for hire, you are probably not going to make much money with your writing because you’re writing mostly for yourself. To earn a living as a writer, you need to self-publish a book. You can get your book published by either self-publishing or by working with a publisher.

8. Promote and Market

If you’re going to be a great copywriter (or even a good one) you’re going to have to learn how to think like a marketer. A great way to start is by asking yourself: “What would I say to someone if I believed they could make $25,000 to $50,000 per month by working with me?” By thinking this way you’ll start to put yourself in the shoes of your prospective client. What would they want to hear? How would they respond to certain words, phrases, and ideas? You see, when you think like this you’ll be able to craft the strongest possible sales message which will in turn make you a stronger copywriter.

9. Learn the Basics of Social Media

Nowadays, you can’t just start a blog post, tweet, and share on Facebook all at once. In order to promote your new blog post or article online, you first need to understand the basics of social media. This includes a basic understanding of what’s trending on Twitter and what kind of content consumers are interested in. Then, you need to write an effective headline that will grab attention and make your readers want to read more. Finally, you’ll need to optimize your content so it’s easy to consume, meaning that it’s easy to scan, skim, and digest.

10. Manage Your Time

If you haven’t read the book “The First Hundred Million” by Geoffrey Moore, I highly recommend you do so. This is one of the most valuable books I’ve ever read on marketing and business. Here’s an interesting quote from the book: Most marketing campaigns last three to twelve months. Yet studies show 90% of all new product sales are made within the first 30 days. This means marketing needs to be super effective during this critical first month. But it also means copywriters (even great ones like me) need to get much better at managing their time.

11. Set up Google Alerts

You can also use Google Alerts to monitor the performance of blogs. All you need to do is add a keyword or two and Google will notify you via email whenever your search term is mentioned in blog posts. This can help you keep track of your content marketing strategy and gauge the performance of your blog.

12. Schedule Content

This tip is for those who are starting out, but even experienced marketers can use this technique if they’re looking to reach a wider audience. The idea is that there’s a lot of competition online. If you post content on a regular basis, then your audience will come back to see what’s new.

13. Follow Up on Customers

One of the biggest mistakes made by new entrepreneurs is not having a good follow-up strategy. This is especially true if you are selling via direct response channels (such as email). In the case of selling via direct response, it is imperative that you stay in touch with your customers. The longer the time between interaction, the less likely they are to come back to your sales message. A simple way to stay in touch is to send a short, semi-regular newsletter.

14. Track Results

If you’re thinking about starting a blog but aren’t sure where to begin, a good place to start is with a content calendar. You want to establish a set of posts for a month or two—or a week or two if you’re blogging about a recurring topic—and then decide which ones are going to be more effective for your audience. This should help you to narrow down your topics and focus your energy on those that will most benefit your readers and ultimately lead to conversions.

15. Never Stop Learning

A lot of people think that writing for the web is a static medium, but the truth is that the web is constantly changing. This means that the way your audience sees your website and its content can change at any time. As a blogger, you need to keep up with the latest trends, technologies, and ways to present yourself and your content so that you are seen as a relevant and valuable resource to your readers and your brand.

In conclusion, copywriting is all about human psychology. You have to understand what people want and how to give it to them. With a little practice, you’ll become an expert copywriter in no time! Here are 16 proven strategies for working smarter… not harder… when it comes to writing copy. Copywriters are like magicians. They can make almost anything look easy. However, when it comes to actually creating great copy, it is truly an art form. And, the best copywriters are always working… because… they know that nobody ever really stops learning how to write copy. Great copywriters never stop becoming better at their craft. There’s no shortcut. If you want to become one of those “magicians,” you must practice, practice, and practice!
