AWAI Member Doesn’t Write One Word of Sales Copy … But Her Client Just Hired Her for a High-Paying Copywriting Job

Eva Rissler wanted to kick off her freelance career ASAP … and she didn’t really want to write long copy like sales letters. A very specific and in-demand niche met both her criteria. And she quickly landed her first client a direct response copywriter who specializes in natural health supplements.

“I do the Internet research for his projects and will be doing editing for him, as well,” explains Eva. “My client estimates he will have 10 hours of work for me each week. It feels very good to be working with this client! He is very easy to work with! We have open communications, which is a must as an Internet researcher.”

Eva fine-tuned her online research skills through AWAI’s Secrets of Becoming an Internet Research Specialist program, having already gone through The Accelerated Program for Six-Figure Copywriting and deciding she didn’t want to write copy, at least not at the moment.

“I chose Internet research because it was a fast start career as the course was short and I already did researching on the World Wide Web so, why now get paid for it! I also love communicating via email best,” says Eva. “Now, here I am, getting clients! AWAI is always so helpful, all the way to the top and President, Rebecca Matter! If it weren’t for their support, I don’t know if I would’ve made it! Thank you, AWAI!!”

Soon after completing the Internet research program, Eva started self-marketing and looking for clients. A popular and effective business social network that many AWAI members have used to find clients proved to be a winner.

“I landed my client through LinkedIn,” says Eva. “I am continually making connections on LinkedIn, and I also will do a monthly newsletter or some form of communication to those copywriters in my niche, the alternative and natural health field. This keeps my name front and center in their minds for when they need an Internet research specialist.”

Eva says this new client is just the start. And she’s already reaping the benefits of the writer’s life.

“I love getting up early in the morning, before the sun comes up and getting my day started while it’s still quiet. I love days when I can work in my pajamas all day, if I feel like it!! This truly is a ‘barefoot writer’s’ job … I am almost always barefoot and love, love, love it!!” says Eva.

“I have a sign in my office that says, ‘If you’re not barefooted, you’re overdressed!’ How true! I love being my own boss and not having to go out in the rain and snow! I love not having to punch a time clock! I love being able to schedule doctor’s appointments, family and friend time, etc. without worrying if I can get off from work!

“I love being able to help our children with our grandbabies with a moment’s notice! I love the lucrative pay scale I have! We are finally starting to ‘catch up’ on things! It truly is a dream come true!”
