Why Companies Will Pay You $3,000 to $5,000 for This Kind of Writing

You could write out your grocery list … or maybe pour yourself a cup of coffee and take the first sip in 3.3 minutes.

Or you could read an email.

In fact, according to AWeber, a company that provides email marketing software for small businesses, that’s exactly how long it takes a person to read an email.

They also found that on average, most emails are fewer than 500 words. Some might be a page or two in length, but most emails fall in the zone of being short.

And while it doesn’t take that much time to read an email, writing one is just as easy.

In most instances, you could write an email in 30 minutes or less.

And while it isn’t likely you can get paid to read emails, you can certainly make good money writing them.

Writers who know how to write emails are often paid $3,000 up to $5,000 a month. That’s because email marketing is one of the most cost-efficient channels companies can use to reach customers and prospects.

In fact, a new study done by MailerLite found that the volume of emails companies send out to customers has increased by as much as 45% in the past year.

And because they are sending out more emails, companies are coming up with a variety of ways to capture a prospect’s email address, such as using landing pages with sign-up boxes and pop-up notices asking for their email information.

Their efforts are paying off too. According to data collected by Finaria, a European-based financial research firm, e-commerce revenues (which includes email marketing) jumped to $2.43 trillion last year.

And the number of e-commerce users is growing just as quickly. Finaria says by 2025, the number of worldwide e-commerce users is expected to reach 4.9 billion.

This means people are getting more and more comfortable making purchases online.

For you, Dear Copywriter, this spells opportunity.

You see, if more people are buying online and more businesses are using emails to reach out to those people, this means companies need email writers.

The truth is, email marketing is essential to millions of companies that do business online, no matter if they’re large or small.

And here’s something else to consider … emails are never one and done. Companies send them out to customers and prospects every day. Some even send three … four … up to five emails a day.

Imagine if you had more than one client paying you $3,000 a month to write a few emails? Even if you had just two clients, you’d be looking at making an extra $72,000 a year. With three clients, your income then soars to $108,000 a year.

As an email writer, the sky is the limit on what you can earn.

But also, there are other benefits that come with being an email writer. For instance, once you get your business up and running, you can literally pick and choose the clients you want to write for, along with determining how many hours you want to spend writing those emails.

Or maybe you prefer to keep your regular 9-to-5 job and just want to make an extra $3,000 a month to pay off some bills. So for you, one client is the perfect way to go about it. Or if you’re the kind of writer who has set a goal to earn a six-figure income, then you’ll want to land more than one client.

And doing that won’t be a problem because clients are everywhere. Remember, more and more companies are adding more money to their online budgets and that includes paying handsome fees to email writers.

But here’s the thing. Companies need writers who know how to write compelling emails. I’m talking about emails that prompt customers to take action, whether it’s picking up the phone to find out more about a company’s products and services or hitting the buy button.

Good thing AWAI has created a “study-at-your-own-pace” learning program taught by one of the best email writers in the business. That writer is none other than our very own email writing expert, Guillermo Rubio.

Around here, we call him “G.”

And for the past few years, G’s been quietly writing winning copy for some of the top direct-response companies around, including Money Map Press, Weiss Research, International Living, and (you guessed it) AWAI.

His email copywriting skills have produced some amazing results. For example, just one email campaign he wrote helped bring in $1.2 million in just 35 days for one of his clients.

And he’s made his clients up to $173,709 in a single day — by writing a SINGLE email!

His track record of success doesn’t end there either. He’s written email campaigns for AWAI that have broken records and produced some of the biggest results we’ve ever seen.

You can learn more about G and the home study program he’s put together right here.

Let me just say this … by the time you’re done with G’s program, you will have ALL the knowledge you need to go out and land clients as an email writing specialist.
