When it comes to finding freelance work, nothing works better than an email list filled with prospective clients.
Think about it – an email list full of prospective clients just waiting to hear from you. That’s the proverbial golden egg!
If you’re thinking “Samar, that sounds great, but it’s just not realistic”, let me tell you about my friend Henneke Duistermaat of Enchanting Marketing.
Wait, I’ll let her tell you about it:
My approach has been pretty low key. Rather than sell my copywriting services, I show potential clients I can write. I share my ‘secret’ tricks on how to write persuasive copy in my free snackable writing course (and on my blog, of course). In my email footer, I have the text “Would you like to get in touch? Just hit reply. I’d love to hear from you.”
As my email list grows reasonably fast, this generates more copywriting inquiries than I can handle. If your list doesn’t grow so fast, then you might want to make that statement a little bolder, like: Would you like help with your copy? Just hit reply.
