Within this article today on copywriting tips, we'll look at how you can acquire more clients as well as
improve your writing skills.


Improving these two skills will allow you to have a meteoric rise in the income that you bring in. Many
copywriters are very strong in their profession but are not very good at procuring clients. If you are able to
sell yourself to potential clients, you'll never find yourself short of work. The ability to sell yourself is what
will set you apart from all the other freelance copywriters out there. You must make sure that you have a
portfolio of your best work. Within this portfolio, you'll want to have a letter explaining your qualifications
along with samples of your writing as well as testimonials from your previous jobs. If you are able to e-mail
this to your potential clients, this will help set you apart. They can see the professional work you have done
in the past as well as the client base that you currently work with. If you are able to reference Fortune 500
companies you have worked with, this will continue to improve your credibility. If you are just starting out
in the copywriting field, delete the potential references and replace this with more work that you have done
in the past. If you have worked for an advertising agency and are beginning to freelance, make sure to
include some the work that you have done at the advertising agency.


Two possible ways that you can acquire clients are to post at different contracting websites such as
elance.com or directfreelance.com. You can also research companies who you can potentially see if they
need work. If you spend time reading the business section every day, cut out articles that might be within
your particular field and keep them in a centralized location. This could be a potential source of leads for
you depending upon how the companies are doing and if it is in a predicament where your skills may be
needed
