This Skill Gets You Paid Twice

Jen Adams here, wrapping up an exciting week of learning about list building.

You’ve seen the fundamentals, learned how to get new names for your own list, learned to drive traffic to your site, and seen how to use list building in other areas of your life to make money.

Today, I’m going to show you a way you can get paid twice, just by using your new list-building skills!

You see, your copywriting clients are very interested in list building. After all, their profits go up when their sales letters reach more prospective customers.

So, many businesses hire list-building experts to help them find new ways to attract new names for their lists.

There’s no reason that list-building expert can’t be you!

And, when you’re hired as a list-building expert by a client, you can actually earn two paychecks.

You’ll earn your first paycheck as a consultant, where you’ll review what your client is already doing to build their list and make recommendations. In the strategies you give them, you may include writing new special reports, adjusting their website copy, or even setting up a new email campaign.

Well, next … who do you think will create the content to put your recommendations into practice?

Some stranger … or you, the expert they already know?

That’s your second paycheck right there!

So, here’s your action step for today …

Visit the websites for a few of the businesses you’d like to work for as a copywriter. Imagine you’re their consultant. Put together a set of recommendations for them to increase their ability to get new names.

Share your ideas in the comments. If you’re confident in your recommendations, consider pitching it to the business directly.
