This is not theoretical; I’ve personally sold several of these projects these past few months.
You can sell a 5-email campaign for $500-$1,500 or a 10-email campaign for $1,000-$3,000.
Since it’s not a huge investment you can close the deal over DMs.
That might take you an hour of back and forth or no time at all since some people will say yes on the spot.
Then you do an onboarding call for about 60 minutes; sometimes you won’t need one.
Writing the emails will take you 1.5-3 hours.
Effective hourly rate = $100-$200.
Sell one of these a day.
Take weekends off.
It’s hard work to be sure.
Certainly not “passive income.”
But it’s $10,000 a month made $500 at a time.
And while 10k is the holy grail for a lot of copywriters, many would be well-fed and content at $3000/month or $5000/month.
Even selling one or two of these packages a month makes a meaningful difference in one’s income.
Especially if one lives in the Global South.
You can apply this to all sorts of copy, not just emails.
Ads, landing pages, social media posts, articles, lead magnets, white papers and so on.
And those clients won’t be worth just $500 to you.
Do a good job for them and they’ll end up paying you $10,000 to $100,000 or more over the course of your relationship.
They’ll also refer their friends.
You can build your entire career and a 6-figure freelancing business off of these simple, $500 projects.
But there’s a catch to all this.
First, you have to be a good enough copywriter that your work gets results.
Second, you need to know how to sell over DMs or email.
Third, if you’re new to the game, you must be willing to send 100 cold emails/DMs to get 1 client.
