Here’s the list of projects that pay at least $1,000 and can be completed in a weekend …

Case Studies
Fee: $1,250 – $2,000

Case studies are short stories that describe how a company or organization solved a challenge with a product or service — and what the results of solving that challenge were. Typically around 800-1,200 words, case studies are basically a “before-and-after” story.

E-newsletters
Fee: $900 to $1,200 per issue

Business owners use e-newsletters to stay in touch with and build relationships with current, past, and potential clients. You’ll write fresh, relevant content (usually around 1,200 to 1,500 words) on a regular basis (either weekly or monthly).

Key Message Copy Platforms
Fee: $2,500-$4,000

Key Message Copy Platforms are comprehensive documents (no more than 10 pages) that contain all the relevant marketing messages and statements about a product or service. Its purpose is to serve as the “master messaging document” for that product or service, to ensure all marketing pieces will have a very consistent voice and message.

Site Audits
Fee: $1,000 – $2,500

Most companies have no idea why their website isn’t performing as they’d like … whether it’s not showing up in the search engines, not bringing them new business, or not doing any selling. Yet by simply following a checklist, you become a problem solver and discover why. Clients pay you to write a report that gives them the list of areas that need to be fixed.

Sales Funnels
Fee: $1,000 – $1,500

Sales funnels are highly effective, automated emails that keep new customers coming down the pipeline and offer previous buyers new products. This project is unique because clients will pay you to design the funnel. But then, you can also get paid to write the copy, and then again to keep optimizing it — something called Customer Value Optimization (CVO).
