Take The “Back Door” To
Living The Writer’s Life

Gain the freedom, flexibility, and income of a well-paid writer … without having to write a single word!

From Katie Yeakle, Executive Director, AWAI …

Dear Reader,

Most folks haven’t heard of it.

Many more would never dream they could get paid for this simple and fun thing that they ALREADY do, practically on a daily basis!

Best of all, it can be a great way for you to gain the freedom and flexibility the writer’s life provides … without having to write a single word. (I’ll also show you how you can “test” this opportunity out, 100% risk-free.)

I’m going to tell you about a lucrative little opportunity that:

  • Is much easier than writing
  • Allows you to earn money from something you ALREADY do
  • Let’s you get started right away (in as little as a weekend)
  • Can supplement your current income or can be something you choose to do full-time

But first —

How do you know if this opportunity is right for you?

If you thrive in a structured 9-to-5 environment where you have to answer to a boss, then this is probably not for you.

But if you’re the kind of person who dreams of having the freedom to live anywhere you want and still earn a great living … of having the flexibility to work when you want to, and take as much “time off” as you’d like … And if you’re the kind of person who is curious about the world and loves to learn, then it’s a perfect fit.

You won’t get rich overnight.

But if you apply yourself, it really could be the thing that sets you free. The thing that puts you squarely on the path to living YOUR version of the writer’s life.

It’s a very real and serious opportunity.

One that can give you extra “fun” money — maybe save up for that vacation you’ve always wanted to take, or buy that new “toy” you’ve had your eye on …

Or one that can turn into your full-time source of income — an income you can take with you anywhere in the world you call home, so long as you have a computer and an Internet connection.

This doesn’t involve writing copy. It’s not graphic design. In fact, it doesn’t involve any of the “traditional” freelancing careers you may have heard of in the past.

This is even easier than all that — partially because chances are VERY good you’re already doing it … almost every day!

Get Paid To Do This Fun, Easy Task

So what is this opportunity?

Getting paid to surf the Web.

Allow me to explain —

You may not know it, but there are tens of thousands of small businesses across the globe that NEED quality research. They need someone to surf the Web and dig up all kinds of interesting facts, figures, statistics, studies, articles, and more.

 … Some need it to make their marketing materials more credible and persuasive …

 … Some need it to see what their competitors are up to, so they can make more informed decisions …

 … Some need it to fact-check and support their advertising and marketing claims …

 … Yet others just need some basic market research done to see if a new product or service they plan on launching in the future will do well.

Regardless of why they need it, the fact remains: businesses in all kinds of industries can benefit from expertly-done research.

Many of these companies could choose to do all this research on their own. Some do.

But as you already know, in today’s fast-paced world, the old adage “time is money” has never been more true. That’s why as an Internet Research Specialist — someone who can surf the Web to find exactly what they need — you’ll be incredibly valuable.

It’s exactly why this is a serious opportunity that can allow you to gain the fun … the freedom … and the flexibility you crave and deserve.

Now, I know this may sound a little “too good to be true.”

How An Ex-Accountant
Stumbled Onto
This Lucrative Opportunity

I wouldn’t have believed it either, had it not been for an ex-accountant I met.

Her name is Sandy Ferguson and as luck would have it, she “fell” into this lucrative and little-known opportunity.

One day, she was visiting her cousin, superstar copywriter Carline Anglade-Cole.

They were catching up on things when Carline dropped an “Oh, by the way …” into the conversation.

What Carline said next triggered a MASSIVE transformation in Sandy’s life, and is the starting point for everything you’re about to discover.

"I was just talking to a client who's been neck-deep in research to help me with a promo I'm writing for him. He knows I need the research to give him the best possible results from what I write. But, he's frustrated because he feels like he's wasting valuable time he should be spending somewhere else in his business.”

"I asked him if he ever considered having someone else do it. Of course he said no. Then I told him I had someone in mind that may be able to help, and he wanted to hire them immediately.

"So … do you think you'd be interested?"

Sandy was surprised and doubtful at first. She’d never done research for pay before. Plus, what if she couldn’t find the specific information the client needed?

"My clients and I regularly bring Sandy in the back door on projects — and are happy to pay her $50/hour because she can really dig up some juicy research to make my copy POP!

“Getting a researcher was one of the best moves I made in my copywriting career — and I know other writers would benefit from having a researcher too."

— Carline Anglade-Cole,
Million-Dollar Copywriter

But Carline reassured her it was as simple as searching all over the Web from a list of topics her client would give her.

Sandy mustered her courage and decided to give it a shot.

Being an introvert, she was nervous as she picked up the phone and called Carline’s client.

She got hired on the spot … $18 an hour to search the Internet for every morsel of information she could find on folic acid and heart health, to help Carline out with her promo.

The rest, as they say, is history. Sandy had a blast surfing the Web and thanks to the research she provided, Carline’s promotion was a big hit!

When it all was said and done, Sandy had racked up a $450 payday for surfing the Web on topics she found interesting anyways.

Gaining the confidence from this one project, Sandy started offering her services to other similar companies, and today gets paid $50+ an hour to surf the Web for them.

She’s living the writer’s life — and has never had to write a lick of copy in her life!

And in just a moment, I’ll tell you how you can join Sandy (even without having a superstar copywriter as your cousin) … And how you can get all the clients you’ll need to keep you busy, in your new career as an Internet Research Specialist.

But first, I’d like you to …

Meet Your Future Clients

So who will you be doing research for?

It depends.

There are companies in a wide variety of industries and markets that could use your services.

If you’d prefer to do “competitive research,” you could work for B2B technology companies, medical device manufacturers, or any other company that could use insights into their competitors and their business models.

Maybe you prefer learning about finances and investments. You may choose to do research for a financial publisher, getting interesting tidbits on what’s going on with the market and economy.

And that’s the point —

You can choose to specialize in areas you enjoy learning about. Or, you can go wide and varied, and have something new to research and learn about with every project you take on.

Quick example: As you probably already know, the direct-response marketing industry is HUGE.

The Direct Marketing Association (DMA) estimates that marketers spent $168.5 BILLION on direct marketing last year alone. (That’s over HALF of all ad expenditures in the U.S.!)

These are companies that are in a wide variety of niches — including health, investments, pets, technology, personal development, golf, music, fundraising, gardening, and more.

Chances are good you have an interest in at least one of these areas.

Any number of these companies would be thrilled to hire a researcher, since their copy needs to be infused with proof and credibility. For example, Sandy — the ex-accountant I introduced you to — loves learning about health.

As a result, her specialty is digging up interesting facts and studies on ingredients found in supplements, new medical discoveries, and more.

Which brings me to another point: Any company that uses copy to sell their products and services usually hires copywriters and graphic designers. “Solo-professionals” like these are another potential source of clients, since the services they deliver can heavily depend on great research.

But your potential clients can be found elsewhere too …

Maybe you’d rather do market research — finding out everything you can on a company’s target market, and the outside factors that may impact their buying decisions.

Go that route and you get your foot in the door of yet ANOTHER huge industry.

Research firm ESOMAR estimates that companies worldwide spent an estimated $33.5 BILLION on market research last year.

With market research, you cast a wider net, and could serve companies of all shapes and sizes from all over the world.

Then there are all the job networks out there where businesses are actively looking to hire researchers to surf the Web for them.

This is yet another great source of potential clients you can develop long-term relationships with.

Take a look:

(This next site shows businesses who have posted research jobs they need completed. You can see under the “Avg (USD)” column that Internet Research Specialists are bidding an average of $176-$705 to complete just one project) …

Once you make the leap to become an Internet Research Specialist, you’ll be limited only by your creativity as to all the different ways you can make this simple skill pay off.

Your Typical Day At “Work”

As I’ve mentioned earlier, this is a very unique opportunity. One that provides you with a quick and easy path to living the writer's life.

You can:

  • Control your own schedule. YOU decide how much you work and how much “time off” you get. Want to call it a day and spend the afternoon with family? You can. Want to work the mornings and spend the rest of the day working on your golf game? Yep, you can do that too. Your time is yours to control.
  • Live and work where you want. Work in your PJs from the comfort of home, if that’s what you want. Or you can go live in Spain for 3 months while you continue to do work for your clients. Maybe you want to tour the country in your RV, while you do a little web surfing for clients here and there. So long as you have a computer and an Internet connection, it’s possible.
  • Work — and earn — as much or as little as you want. This could provide a “hobby” income, where you make a few hundred dollars a month … or you can commit yourself to turning it into a full-time source of income. Again, the choice is yours. You're in control of your income and your financial future.

This is why some are calling it the “back door” to living the writer’s life. No need to put in hours of “elbow grease” learning the ins and outs of writing persuasive copy. No need to write out sales letters by hand.

No need to have to “sell” or try and beat a control.

Instead, you’ll be surfing the Web.

You’ll count yourself among the small and exclusive group of freelancers who are quietly earning a lucrative living, without writing a word.

So what does a typical day as an Internet Research Specialist look like?

Well, if Sandy’s typical workday is any indication, you’ll often have a pretty relaxed time at the “office” …

Sandy starts her day’s "commute" by walking down the hall to her home office.

She sits down at her desk and fires up her computer. She opens up her Internet browser and heads over to Google.com.

Sandy surfs the Web looking for interesting articles. The ones she finds, she copies and pastes into a Microsoft Word document. When she's found enough, she sends this document to her client along with an invoice for her "surfing time."

At that point, she decides whether she wants to keep working or not. If she’s done for the day, she calls it good and goes on with the rest of her day. After all, she’s the boss!

This is the kind of ultimate freedom and flexibility being an Internet Research Specialist can give you. And it’s true, the most you ever “write” is a few emails back and forth to clients.

"A knowledgeable, competent, diligent research person, able to access online and offline resources, pull together the 'raw material stack' is a busy, successful copywriter's ultimate secret weapon. There is plenty of work for freelance researchers — in fact, my own experience indicates there's a shortage of these people. The same day I wrote this, I had a research project to assign, but no one available to give it to."

— Dan Kennedy
