I decided to update my profile overview on odesk. What do you think?
You are probably thinking, "there are hundreds of copywriters out there, why choose this one?"
Spare me a minute of your time while I tell you a short story about my work background....
I have been working in sales since my college days. I took door to door jobs selling things like encyclopedias, insurance, magazine subscriptions. Over the years, I moved up, from selling cars, then being a rep for pharmaceuticals, and eventually, sold investments as a stockbroker.
My sales work evolved from knocking door to door into telemarketing and networking with qualified prospects. I had to work every day. On my free time, I was on “network” mode spending time with clients hoping to get more business from them. I was in "sell mode", selling one-to-one.
And then I met Dan.
Dan was a copywriter specializing in Direct Response Advertising. If you've come across one of those investment newsletters, or sales letters that you get in your mailbox--that's the kind of copywriting that my friend Dan was doing. He was so good at it that, Dan would work on a sales letter for a couple of months, then kick back the rest of the year enjoying the fruits of his labor.
One time, Dan introduced me to one of his business partners, Bob. With Dan writing for Bob's investment newsletter, they were able to grow the business into a multi-million dollar venture. The last time I heard from Dan, he was retired and travelling all over the world with his loved ones.
Who wouldn't want that?
Although I was making money as a stockbroker, I too, wanted whatever Dan was having. I quit my job and apprenticed with Dan. That was back in 1998.
Today, I own several businesses that I started on the internet. I have a few websites that are generating a good amount of passive income for me. These different websites sell e-books on diverse subjects such as:
- how to win playing cash games in online poker
- weight loss for middle aged adults
- trading foreign currencies online on your free time
- how to migrate to New Zealand with your whole family
- how to market your product/service on the internet
- ...plus a few more that are still in its infancy stage.
Here's a sales funnel page that I have from two of these money-making websites--
You might be wondering, “if you are making money with your business, why are you looking for clients in odesk?”
I do this to improve my skills as a copywriter. I want to develop my skills by taking on copywriting assignments that are a bit outside of my comfort zone. Like professional athletes, copywriters too, seek to elevate their game not by reading books but by practice and playing the game.
Don't worry. I am not going to steal your idea from you. I am here to help. It doesn't matter to me if I make less money helping you grow your business. The insights that I gain from any copywriting assignment is more than enough compensation for me in the long run.
If you are looking for someone to help you grow your business
...one who knows how to market and build a business on the internet
...someone who knows how to influence people and win them over
...a writer who understands the sales process and knows how to close potential customers for you--I could be the kind of help you are looking for.
