Hey, freelance writers!
How’s your pitch these days?
Pitching is the best, most reliable way to find great clients with healthy budgets (read: money to pay you). But many freelance writers aren’t pitching their services.
Why do you think that is?
Pitching is hard.
Coming up with what to write in your pitch is a lot of pressure. This is the first impression you’re going to make on this client, after all, so it’s gotta be great.
Sending your pitch is hard, too. Because when you send a pitch, you risk rejection. And nobody likes that.
So instead, you turn to another cattle call of a job board, hoping that maybe yours will be the one to beat out hundreds of other submissions. And in the meantime, you write another 500-word post and get paid a measly $15 for it.
Over and over, on repeat.
No wonder so many freelance writers burn out! That’s no way to live!
But here’s the good news:
There’s an easier way to pitch.
…One that gives you the confidence to introduce yourself, without having to agonize about every word in the email.
Order a pitch review, and we’ll get your pitch in top shape.
You’ll be landing real clients with real budgets to pay you real rates (think 10 cents per word and more!)…
…even if you’ve never written a pitch before.
…even if you’ve never been paid to write a blog post before.
…even if you need your spouse to come and read your emails to you because you can’t bear to look when a response comes in (because surely I’m not the only person who’s done that…).
Be done with freelance writing job boards forever.
Get a solid pitch set up, and use it to start finding new clients, and you’ll never have to bother with a job board again.
May I tell you a secret?
I’ve been a freelance writer since 2010. I’ve tried just about every gig-hunting tactic in the book, and I’ve had a lot of success with it.
But I’ve never landed work off a freelance job board.
I don’t even bother with them anymore. Haven’t for years.
In my experience, job boards are just cattle calls. You’re competing with people all over the world, and there will always, always, always be someone who can do as good a job as you can, for less. And it’s really hard to beat out everyone else in those circumstances.
That’s why pitching is so important.
Pitching gets you a one-on-one conversation with the person who will (hypothetically) hire you.
It’s in that quick “conversation” you have, right in their inbox, that you impress your potential new client, convince them of the great service you’ll do for them, and (most importantly) get them to write back.
You might not know how to write a great pitch, but I know how to help you do it.
I’ve already mentioned that I’ve been a freelance writer for years. But what you might not know is that I’ve also been a blog editor…
the Editor-in-Chief and Director of Content for a highly respected network of blogs in the career space, to be specific.
I’ve been on both sides of the table.
I know how hard it is to write a great pitch… and I know how easy it is to spot — and say YES to — a great pitch.
So if you’re ready to get serious as a freelance writer… and start making some serious money without so much hustle and stress…
Hire me to review your pitch. (<– that’s a link)
When you click that link and buy the review service, here’s what will happen:
- I’ll send you an automatic confirmation with instructions for where to send your pitch draft.
- You send me your pitch draft.
- Within a week of receiving your pitch, I’ll open it up, turn on my recording software, and record a video of my screen as I review your pitch. I’ll leave comments and notes for you, and suggestions for how you can strengthen the pitch and tweak it for individual clients.
- You make the changes I suggest and email me a new draft.
- Within 3 business days, I’ll email a second (and final) round of comments for you.
And that’s it! You’ll come away with not only a solid pitch, but an understanding of how to customize it for each client and how to use the pitch as a tool to boost your business.
But that’s not all. You’ll also walk away with the confidence to start putting yourself out there for better pay.
And while you can’t put a price on confidence… you can put a price on your services. A higher price. A price you deserve.
So if you’re currently making $15 for a 500-word blog post, you can start making $50 or even more for the same post.
It all starts with a great pitch.
My custom pitch review service is currently offered for $17. That’s an incredibly low introductory rate, and the price will absolutely go up soon.
