AWAI Member Joe Lilli Lands His Dream Client
Joe Lilli's personal passion for alternative health runs deep. For many years, he’s been interested in good nutrition, exercise, and fitness. He also has a serious interest in alternatives to mainstream medicine. It's a way of life for him.
As a copywriter, he was eager to land clients in this niche.
His hard work has paid off.
He’s written an e-book for Discovery Health Publishing and gotten good feedback on the manuscript from their creative director. It’s now ready for publication. He was paid a flat fee — but also gets royalties on profits from the book sales.
The alternative health publisher has also told him they’d like to hire him for future projects and meet with him at our upcoming Bootcamp later this month.
He found the client through AWAI’s DirectResponseJobs.com Job Board back in April. A little research about the company allowed him to really personalize his pitch for the project. (That, by the way, is a great way to set yourself apart from other freelancers.)
As Joe told us:
“I wanted to do a great job for them and, hopefully, use that as a springboard to other writing projects — not only from them but from other companies as well. From the feedback I received, I believe things are beginning to fall in place.
“My dream of becoming a ‘Barefoot Writer’ is coming closer to reality … thanks to AWAI.”
Great work, Joe! See you at Bootcamp.
