You know, you don’t have to run yourself into the ground to get copywriting clients if you don’t have experience. You just have to think creatively and not be afraid of “hanging out your shingle” so to speak.

Sometimes that’s easier said than done, so here are a few ideas to get your thinker going and hopefully inspire confidence to go out there and get that bread…

1. Use your existing sphere of influence. Tell people you’re a copywriter now. It doesn’t matter if you have gotten work yet or not. You are one. I got my first clients this way. They weren’t the BEST clients, but they got my foot in the door.

2. Build an email list. Write some copy to promote your list. Put it on your fb timeline. You never know when someone will subscribe and consequently buy your services when you email your list. I got a client when my list was less than 10 people. It’s good practice for writing your own copy too.

3. Go local. Look at businesses around your area. Get on their email lists and look at other marketing they do. What holes can you fill? Do they email often? Could you help them if they don’t?

4. Speaking of local, are there any networking groups you can join and promote your services in your area? I see very few copywriters in these.

5. There are plenty of jobs boards on FB you can plug into and either answer when people ask for services or post about your own. They’re pretty easy to find with a simple search.

6. You could always try Fiverr. Fiverr is a freelance marketplace with all kinds of people offering all kinds of services. Wanna hire a guy to record your outbound voicemail as Peter Griffin? It’s there. And so are copywriters. Why not you? Click here to sign up.

7. Go to FB groups where your ideal client hangs out and answer when they have questions about sales/marketing/copywriting. Again, it doesn’t matter if you’re an expert yet. Pick questions at your current level and show them you have value to offer. Little by little your influence as a copywriter will grow.

Some may work better than others. But the important thing is to start. It’ll be super nerve-racking at first. But it’ll get easier and easier, and you’ll gain both skill and confidence each time you land a new client. I hope that was helpful.

See you around,
