The Best Way to Pick Up Multiple Retainer Clients

Retainer clients are one of the best ways to ensure yourself a consistent income as a freelancer.

When you negotiate a retainer deal with a client, you’ll get paid month after month for as long as you keep the deal in place.

One area where retainer deals are the norm is social media.

Social media lends itself to retainers because, when you’re contracted to monitor and update your client’s social channels, you’ll work on it for a portion of the day, every day.

This isn’t a one-off project, like writing a sales letter or a landing page.

And with the importance social media now plays in our culture, businesses are becoming more reliant on staying active and engaging with their customers this way.

Prove you can engage your client’s audience and start bringing in new readers, and you can earn $1,000-$2,000 a month per client — spending just a couple of hours per day on each one.

That money can add up to a lucrative income very quickly.

That’s why we were sure to include social media writing in our “Badges” program.

This is one of the best ways to earn great money as a copywriter simply by writing collateral copy.
