During the session, you’ll learn:

  • 5 ways you can approach and land your first client.

  • Hi, might this be recorded for later playback? I’m 50-50 on being available tomorrow at noon and I’d really like to listen in. Thank you!

  • I signed up to the Wealthy Web Writer today, and started with a replay of your webinar.

    Just wanted to thank you for those five strategies, they sound effective and doable. What I like about them is the different approaches that may appeal to different people : if you don’t like trade shows and conversations – I love talking and listening to people 😀 – you can send the letters.

    The like the snail mail idea, and I agree that they may work well, especially now when the only letters you get in you mailbox are bills…

    Thanks again for sharing, I’m going to try telling everyone – I do, but I do that somehow casually – and the pattern disrupt.

    By the way, I send suggestions about websites sometimes, but never follow and never get in touch again even if people I approach seem grateful and friendly.

  • Hi Heather. Thanks for a great webinar, which I just finished re-listening to.

    I was just wondering what your thoughts are on using an e-newsletter as a marketing tool in one’s web writing business …

    • Hi Jeff,

      I think if you have a well-defined niche and if you focus your e-letter on how to use web writing rather than teaching how to write that it can work very well. What does happen sometimes is that you get more writers signed up than actual potential clients, so you need to review the results regularly to make sure it’s worth the time investment.

  • Heather this was very helpful. The strategy steps make so much sense and eradicate a lot of guesswork. After being part of the State of The Industry Summit, which is where I first ‘met’ you, I believe Strategy #2 is more than likely now for so many companies…
    I especially appreciate your comment/reminder to show we care about the company and their needs and don’t just show up looking for a job!
    Thank you for offering another step on my road map to success.
