Lately I've seen a lot of people posting threads asking for a copywriter. Nothing wrong with that. What the problem is is no one seems to be willing to go into any detail at all. Here's the thing... successful copywriters already have a backlog of clients. They position themselves so that clients come to THEM - not the other way around. That's not to say they won't send you a quick message... but they'll only do it if you give them some basic info. If you don't provide the basics, you'll get a heap of low-talent writers who are desperate for work because (surprise surprise) they are unable to market themselves... and if they can't market themselves, most likely they won't be able to help you. So if you are looking for a copywriter and want to post a thread, include this info: *Your budget (be aware that your chances of getting a decent writer for under $1 000 are about as good as winning the lottery, and your chances of getting a decent writer under $2 000 are slim at best. You get what you pay for, after all). *Your niche (I can appreciate you may not want to "give away" your product on an open forum filled with marketers... but a general statement is a good start. E.g. "weight loss", "bodybuilding", "internet marketing"). *What the project IS (sales page, squeeze page, autoresponder emails etc) *Your deadline that you need the copy by (even a general idea is handy) This will help you in several ways: *You'll actually get decent writers sending you messages (assuming you don't try to offer a dirt cheap price) *You will have less enquiries from skilled copywriters who wouldn't be able to do your project anyway *You'll ensure you get a writer who is passionate about your topic (important) If you follow these guidelines, you'll not only make this board a better place for everyone, but also help yourself out.
