As a consultant-strategic advisor, you are an integral part of the entire process from inception to end, thus valued and paid far better.
DIRECTIONS TO SPECIAL OPPORTUNITIES FOR COPYWRITERS
- Ghost-Writing. SECRET: many clients use (could use) books, entire courses, online courses, articles, etc. that need to be carefully crafted either as disguised sales letters or as stealth-promotional tools. If they hire ordinary writers to do this work, it totally misses the mark. Ill tell you how to attract these clients locally, with a simple prospecting letter or even a postcard (!) or nationally, with a simple, low-cost lead generation ad and by non-overt methods as well. Local clients can produce per-project fees upwards from $3,000.00 to $5,000.00, bigger in scope clients from $15,000.00 to $25,000.00 and up. Ill show you actual examples. Give you the blueprints.
- Audio, Video, Online Presentation Scripts: SECRET: many clients use (could use) audio CDs, DVDs, Webinar, Online Video, etc. presentations but dont or bungle them badly because they dont know how to create the properly structured, persuasive script. Ill send you home with ACTUAL SCRIPTS IVE WRITTEN for these purposes, STRUCTURE NOTES, as well as pointing you to these clients and telling you exactly how to interest them in having these scripts written for them. Ill also give you script secrets from TV infomercials that apply to any of these formats. EXTRA CONSULTING SECRET: Ill equip you to help clients obtain celebrities they can afford, to host these presentations. INCOME STRATEGY: go from Writer to Producer of these projects.
- Speech-Writing/Group Presentation Script-Writing: SECRET: many clients use (could use) public speaking or their own seminars to promote their businesses or outright sell their products and services but dont or fail because they lack the right scripts. Ill send you home with ACTUAL SCRIPTS IVE WRITTEN for these purposes, STRUCTURE NOTES, as well as pointing you to these clients and telling you exactly how to interest them in having these scripts written for them.
- Implementation Training: SECRET: Many clients have trouble getting their salespeople, distributors, franchisees, staff on the same page with the marketing projects and systems you write copy for and can be induced to pay you to come in and sell their own people on supporting the project and train them on related implementation. You dont have to be Tony Robbins to do this. Ill give you the OUTLINES for this kind of training, too. (One of my very first clients, a local chain of real estate offices, paid me $2,500.00 over and above my copywriting fees to present the campaigns to their own agents small group presentations in five of their offices and that was in 1974, when $2,500.00 was real money. Not long ago, a computer software company I wrote copy for paid me $18,000.00 to come to their headquarters and do the very same kind of presentation. You can make a very good income doing in-house trainings for clients. PLUS, theres another type of training opportunity ideal for most copywriters, easily good for $3,000.00 to $5,000.00 a month like clockwork. Ill give you that one, too.)
- Referral Commissions: SECRET: great copy implemented in successful advertising and marketing campaigns exposes and creates need for other services that you dont provide, but your client needs help in securing. With full disclosure (nothing sneaky!) I routinely earn referral fees this way, in some years, tens of thousands of dollars extra income with no work. You can too. Ill even send you home with my private Rolodex® of key providers you can hook up with.

- Advanced Multiple-Compensation Structures and Partnering With Clients to create continuing income, share in upside, even share in the clients exit strategies and sale of his company (without taking on risks or liabilities of business ownership)
- SPECIAL FRI. EVE. SESSION: WHY & HOW TO BE YOUR OWN CLIENT as an information-marketing entrepreneur. Im credited as a Father of an entire info-marketing industry, in which people with smarts and writing ability create solid, secure, steady 6-figure incomes (and more) for themselves with online/offline media, niche-target markets; books, newsletters, online courses, home study courses, reports, more. This is important to you for 3 reasons: one, youll pay yourself better than any client ever will* two, income security, controlling your own destiny three, demonstration, that attracts clients. Gary Halbert held me up as one of the few copywriters who puts his own money where his mouth is and succeeds with his own products, promotions and projects, and he was right. And that fact gives me great credibility with clients. Ill show you the SIMPLEST, FASTEST WAYS TO CREATE INCOME AS AN INFO-MARKETER.
MESSAGE-MARKET-MEDIA is the basic Triangle that Ive relied on for 30 years, in pre-educating and educating clients, and in organizing my own work with a client. There is also a secret within this Triangle that, applied well, virtually guarantees the success of any marketing effort. There are also common mistakes made with this Triangle that, when identified and avoided, prevent embarrassing failures that lose clients and damage reputation.
PROJECT-PROPOSITION-PROFIT STRATEGY links the three most critical elements of any marketing effort, and it is my contention that the copywriter must be able to influence all three. For example, I teach clients that the cleverest copy cant conquer bad economics, and, for that reason, I probe and exert influence over price decisions, margin decisions, even product choices. There is also a science to defining and measuring Profit, usually differently than the way the client thinks of it if left to his own devices. All three of these elements need to be managed by the copywriter if he is to be successful.
CLIENT ATTRACTION-COMPENSATION-EFFICACY is the Business Model for the consultant/strategist/copywriter. As with all Triangles, no one element is of greater or lesser importance or priority.
