All the marketing methods I tell you about – from having your own website to taking on spec assignments – I’ve done personally. There’s no theory here …

 … just proven, real-world results.

Over the past two decades, I have invested literally tens of thousands of dollars – and hundreds and hundreds of hours – in testing to discover the methods that really work in getting clients.

You’ll spend your time only on those promotions and activities that can quickly generate lucrative copywriting assignments …

 … even if you’re a total novice.

Here’s everything you get as a member of Bob Bly's Getting and Keeping Great Clients.

You Can “Sit In” On My Sold-Out New York Workshop

A whiles back, I held a sold-out workshop in New York City titled “Secrets of a Freelance Writer: How to Make $100,000 a Year.”

I had the entire event recorded – over six hours of exclusive recordings of all my best advice …

 … plus my “personal” conversations with industry pros who share with you exactly how they find clients, how they keep them happy, and how they make $100,000 a year.

Participants in these teleconference calls have included Joe Vitale, Nic Usborne, Paul Hollingshead, Sandy Franks, Steve Wexler, and Chris Marlow, just to name a few.

Each and every month,
AWAI and I will keep you up to date on the latest trends

Although there are some self-marketing tactics that will always stand the test of time … like how to generate interest on the telephone … how to get leads at networking events … and how to create an effective self-marketing print brochure...

 … there are other aspects of self-marketing that change quickly with the times. Who ever heard of marketing your freelance business on MySpace, YouTube, or Facebook a few years ago? Or posting videos to promote your copywriting services on your own blog? Or sending your business card and a brief bio to a prospect via Bluetooth from your PDA or smart phone?

Things change quickly in this business. New methods and strategies of marketing become effective. Older methods die out. That’s why it’s important to stay on top of things … to know what’s working.

We want to ensure you’ve got your finger on the pulse of what today’s marketing trends are.

That’s why – each and every month– you’ll receive all-new tools that you can use right away to get copywriting clients in 2009 and beyond.

Each month, we’ll get in touch with you with one of the following resources:

You can rest assured that everything you receive will be completely up to date and relevant for today’s market.

In other words, you’ll get everything you need to find, get, and keep your dream copywriting clients – month after month – for 2009 and beyond.

"After listening to Bob Bly's teleconference on Writing for the Consumer Newsletter Market, I contacted Sandy Franks, who was one of the guests on the call.

The result was an opportunity to do a renewal letter … which I said I would write at no cost. Several days after I submitted the renewal copy, Sandy asked me to write a control package for one of her other products … at a new writer's fee of $3,500!

So my investment of $79 in the teleconference returned, I think this is right, over 4,000%!

Not bad … I would encourage anyone to give it a try … it really wasn't that hard, and I've already been told that if a second project is awarded, the fee moves to $5,000 with royalties."

– Mike D., Allison Park, PA

Write, stay home, and make $100,000 a year or more

As an AWAI member, you already know the many advantages – money, self-employment, working from home, no commuting, flexible hours – that the freelance copywriting life can give you.

So I won’t waste your time talking about them again here.

But what I do want to tell you is that this is a career with “legs.”

After 25 years as a copywriter, I still love what I’m doing. I literally jump out of bed each day, because I can’t wait to get to my office, turn on my PC, and start on my various copywriting projects.

And there are a lot of extra “perks” I’ve enjoyed – and you may too – that AWAI doesn’t talk about when you join:

Listen. I’m not a best-selling author or the world’s top copywriter. But despite that, I earn more than $700,000 a year from my freelance writing.

One copywriter I trained, living in an airy log cabin in the bucolic New Hampshire woods, earns over $300,000 helping New England construction companies market their services.

More freelance writers than I can count have hit and exceeded the $100,000 a year mark using the methods I shared with them. In a recent survey, 22% reported income of $100,000 a year or more.

And several freelance copywriters I know have even hit the $1 million a year mark.

You may make more. You may make less.

But no matter what, I can virtually assure you of earning a great living as a freelance copywriter when you follow the advice I give you in Bob Bly's Getting and Keeping Great Clients.
