This Year at Bootcamp You'll Meet …
A FULL Day Devoted to Getting Clients “Let’s Get You Paid”
After you’ve gotten up to speed on what’s working now on the writing side, you’ll spend Thursday, October 6, learning what’s working now on the business side…
You’ll learn EVERYTHING you need to know about landing clients and jobs NOW… from working copywriters and marketers looking to hire NOW.
This experience will be completely interactive with unlimited opportunities to connect with writers, panelists, and marketers… ask questions… and more.
Marketers will share what they are looking for in writers…
The projects they need written most… the right way to apply for jobs and assignments… how to work with clients once you’re hired… ways to conduct yourself like a pro… and more.
Most of the marketers you’ll meet have immediate needs for copywriters and will bring spec assignments you can complete in order to show you their specific process for getting hired.
You’ll participate in expert-led sessions that will help address your roadblocks and how to smash through them, and how to set up your AWAI profile so marketers can see who you are, know what you like to write about, and reach out to you directly.
We’ll help you put together a simple but effective self-marketing plan that lets you reach out like a pro to companies you want to write for — even if you’ve never written or don’t have samples.
We’ll talk about pricing — the “painless” way to ask for money and what to charge for different assignments when you’re just starting out.
At the end of this workshop, you’ll not only have met marketers and copy chiefs looking to hire writers…
But you’ll also have the tools, the knowledge, and a proven process for reaching out to clients like a professional…
All this and much more!
