What Does the Current Economic Crisis Mean to Your Future?

There’s nothing like the drama going on in Washington over the past few weeks to drive home the importance of taking control of your career and financial future.

While so many Americans are worried about keeping their jobs, their homes – and even their very life savings – copywriters I know have all the work they can handle.

Sure, all businesses suffer in tough times. But aside from maybe repo companies, the $2.3 trillion direct-response business may just be the one that suffers least of all. Why? Because unlike their brick and mortar counterparts – businesses with debt, rents, inventories and salaries to pay – direct response remains one of the most cost efficient ways to do business.

All it takes is a good letter sent to a list of people (often free, via the Internet) who want to know about more products like the one you’re selling – and wait for the orders to roll in!

That’s why even in these tough economic times, a good copywriter can command thousands of dollars for every letter he or she writes – and a healthy “piece of the action” on sales generated.

After all, the letter you write is crucial to any direct-response marketing effort!

People like Beth Erickson, who left her dead-end job and now makes six figures writing copy from the comfort of her home.

No question, copywriting is a skill that will reward you financially and personally for the rest of your life. It’s a great skill you can take with you into your retirement years … where you can write a letter every month or two and still earn a six-figure income!
