Valuing Professionalism When Providing My Copywriting Services
I have been providing copywriting services for a while now, and although I am not completely new to the industry, I find there is still much to be discovered, as it is a continual learning process. There is no better way to hone your skills as a copywriter than to dive right in and start dealing with clients. In the beginning, and even now, I am often shocked at some of the cutthroat and unscrupulous ways in which some clients conduct themselves.
I find that over time, I have developed a numbness in order to effectively continue running my copywriting services business without allowing such ridiculous clients to phase me. I continue to develop a thick skin and in a sense, expect the worst so when a job with a client goes smoothly, I am pleasantly surprised. I think to survive in this industry, it is important not to get too comfortable. I feel it is advisable to keep a steady demeanor without getting too excited over copywriting successes. That way you avoid a drastic fluctuation in emotions when clients behave unprofessionally.
Eliminating Clients Who are Not Serious about Professional Copywriting Services
There is so much tire kicking and cheapskatedness in copywriting; it is unbelievable. To run a profitable copywriting services business, you need to hold firm to your rates. I find it laughable that potential clients think I am unintelligent enough to fall for their bait and switch tactics, during which they seemingly propose paid work which later entails the stipulation of an unpaid test. Do they work for free? Of course not, so why would they expect me to? During that same time, I could be doing copywriting work for a client that respects me enough to pay me.
Conducting appropriate research to inform myself of a business's products and services, current developments in their sector, gathering relevant sources, and writing engaging content takes time and effort. This should be taken into account when attempting to contract professional copywriting services. Learning the difference between high-quality writing and penny-a-word rubbish you can find anywhere is key. Top tier copywriters charge higher rates because we provide more value. You can choose to pay that or suffer SEO-wise with spammy, low-grade content that does not adequately rank in the search engines, drive traffic, or convert potential customers into sales.
Continual Growth to Strengthen My Copywriting Services Business
I find it worthwhile to draw lessons from every copywriting experience. The unprofessional clients continue to teach me how to identify and weed out situations that are a waste of my time. Providing copywriting services to high-level clients of a certain mentality motivates me to sharpen my skills and advance to higher goals. Seeing the potential for progress and greater opportunities through these interactions creates hope and fuels my desire to uncover more beneficial relationships.
I approach this copywriting experience on a day-by-day basis. Operating a copywriting services business lends limited predictability. It is not possible to foresee how many projects will come your way, when you will see these opportunities, or if a hopeful endeavor will just turn out to be some swindler playing games. Regardless, the upside and financial potential make it deserving of my effort. So I will persist in expanding my copywriting services to benefit additional clients in diverse sectors and growing through research in these new areas.
For My Total Life Changes Team
I figured I’d write this post for my Total Life Changes team, to provide you with some motivation and direction you can follow. After you’ve signed up and started familiarizing yourself with your back office; it’s also good to keep in mind, what sort of game plan you’re going to have for yourself, to be successful in your Total Life Changes business.
I have determined, to be successful in this industry, you must do at least SOMETHING, every day. In this industry we have freedom. That’s why I’m here. I certainly don’t like to feel like I’m under the choke hold of an Employer, who does not have my best interest in mind, just their exploitative agenda. Anyway, in this industry, we are completely free. However, with that freedom, comes responsibility. Since you’re your own Boss, you’re responsible for "telling yourself what to do". If you don’t create a schedule and game plan for yourself, no one else is going to do it.
I feel it’s imperative in Total Life Changes, or any other business venture you undertake, to consistently work on your business. I don’t feel it’s beneficial to turn our lifestyle here into a miserable 9-5, where we start feeling bored and miserable, completing the same tasks day after day. I think it’s important to be creative and keep things interesting. Keep the fun and freedom alive! That’s why we’re here, to live life on our own terms. My terms certainly don’t include feeling miserable.
If this lifestyle were ever to start feeling miserable, I wouldn’t want it. This is the dream lifestyle I’m creating for myself, so for this enjoyment to last a lifetime, it should never feel like a "ho-hum existence", like a drone going to some miserable workplace every day. No way, not here. Here is where I can be happy and live life exactly as I like.
Mindset to be Successful in Total Life Changes
There’s really no excuse, not to do at least something every day, to have success in your Total Life Changes business. Devise a game plan for yourself. I think it’s incredibly simple, if you think of the game plan as consisting of doing at least one thing per day that will contribute to your success in Total Life Changes. It’s even more simple, if you consider it could be something as non-complicated as taking a bit of time to add positivity to your mindset.
In this industry, you may come across a lot of Haters, once you start your journey toward success. Don’t worry about it; to allow some skeptical people to stand between you and success would just be foolish. If you want time freedom and financial freedom; just go for it, and know you have a lot of us in this industry who are supportive of you. We’re all going after the same dreams and are here for you.
You can simply work on building a stronger, more positive mindset, by surrounding yourself with those of us who are also going after the same dreams, or spending some time enjoying content by other people on a similar path (e.g. a video, audio, blog). Just feed your mind with whatever will help you on the path to becoming the best person you can be, and having success in your business.
Daily Tasks to Have Success in Total Life Changes
As long as you’re doing at least something every day to work on your Total Life Changes business, you’ll feel a feeling of contentment and accomplishment. It can be something small that does not take up a lot of time, and can be done simultaneously with other things (like listening to motivational content); or it can be something that takes a little bit more time, but is definitely worth the effort.
For instance, write a blog post or shoot a video about your testimony using the Total Life Changes products. It’s something fun and creative you can do while enjoying awesome products; and it results in gaining team members and customers. When you think about how fun the way we make money is, it doesn’t really feel like work.
Break the work up a little, perhaps create the content one day, market the content on your social media profiles the next. Or maybe do it all the same day if you feel inspired. Just don’t ever let the process start feeling too much like "a job", because that pretty much defeats the whole purpose of being in this industry, to feel free and have fun. Work according to your own pace, since you’re your own Boss and can certainly do whatever you want.
Choose what fits your personality. If you prefer being more "behind the scenes", then choose ways to share your business that are more fitting for you, perhaps blogging. If you’re more outgoing, put yourself out there and shoot some videos.
Maybe you have preferred ways of processing information. Maybe you prefer working on your mindset by reading books or maybe you prefer watching videos. However you want to work on developing yourself as a person and strengthening your mind is great, as long as you’re doing it, that’s what matters.
You can also take into account, what type of marketing techniques suit you best. Maybe you like more technical stuff, you’re interested in SEO, ranking your content in the search engines, driving traffic. Or maybe you just like to do things in a more traditional way, talking to people or offline marketing. Just do what makes you happy and gets you closer to your overall goal.
As long as you’re working on the little steps each day, you’ll ultimately reach the greater goal. Just don’t let yourself miss out on the little opportunities each day to work toward your financial freedom. Even if you just go through a little bit of training each day or learning to use your tools, it all helps in the end. Just do something!
If you’d also like to get on board my Total Life Changes team, start by checking out my blog posts and YouTube videos about Total Life Changes. Pay particular attention to my post about the Total Life Changes Compensation Plan, as well as the detailed sign-up instructions in my post about My Total Life Changes Experience Look forward to having you join us in living a lifestyle of freedom and having fun!
SEO Tips to End Your Struggle
Gaining access to SEO tips that are worth value can be tough. You may be frustrated with scouring the internet, seeking some sort of breakthrough. We all know that without a proper mastery of SEO, you're at a disadvantage, in regard to your competitors. In order to profit generously online, you need to be seen, consistently generating traffic through the top search engines. Keeping on top of the latest SEO tips as part of your educational arsenal is important.
Take some time to analyze your site, blog, articles, etc. Do you have all of the crucial components in place? When you're thinking about SEO, think about the most major SEO tip, the division of SEO into its two distinct parts- on-page optimization and off-page optimization. In this post I will cover a great deal of information, however, for further in depth clarification, take advantage of accessing a complete how-to guide to SEO by clicking the picture below. It's only $9.99 so you have nothing to lose, except the price of an inexpensive meal and your profits if you're using incorrect SEO techniques.
On-Page SEO Tips
The first step in on-page optimization is sensible keyword analysis. If you're trying to rank a new site, it makes the most sense to aim for low competition/high traffic keywords. Better yet, try using long tail keywords. Utilizing specificity, rather than broad keywords, will result in greater purchases. When a Purchaser gets a result that's relevant to the specific criteria they are in need of, it's certainly more beneficial. Long tail keywords that elicit fewer searches per month but less competition, will level the playing field for an Up-and-Comer who is still building Page Rank. You won't get as much traffic as you would, using a broad keyword, but you'll have a greater shot at ranking on the first page of Google.
Next you want to consider your text. Are you following every one of Google's rules to avoid the repercussions of a penalty? One false move, such as a keyword density higher than 3% could cause you to be banned. Don't make the mistake of putting in tons of work writing content, just to have it banned due to keyword stuffing. Ensure the SEO tips you're using are current and in alignment with Google's most recent updates. Keep informed of the latest changes and the reasons why so many black hat SEO Users have been eliminated due to less than ethical practices.
Have you properly placed your keyword in your content? Appropriate placement is vital to ranking, as well as, formatting and word count. Successful SEO requires a delicate balance between all parts, so a missing element will throw off the whole balance. To rank high, gain a mastery of all components and SEO tips that add to your search engine strength, such as HTML headings, optimizing images, and anchor text linking. SEO can be a complex process, so my advice to you is that you check out the in depth SEO guide above by clicking on the picture. It will lay out the critical steps you need to take to be successful.
Off-Page SEO Tips
Building links pointing back to your site, rounds out the SEO process. On-page optimization works in conjunction with off-page practices to create a well-rounded SEO campaign. It's great to have an ample supply of on-page SEO tips, but neglecting backlink building will leave you at a loss. This is another important technique you need to learn. These links must be of the utmost quality; otherwise you'll take a severe dip in your rankings. Never settle for quantity over quality. It's better to have a few good links, than plenty of low-grade links that will get you penalized.
Links from and to authority sites, are the ones you want to concentrate on. If you're unsure whether the site is of quality, do an analysis of its page rank, links, how often it's indexed, and in which search engines. Be careful not to associate yourself with a site that's going to drag you down to a similar low level of penalization. Remember to work on your own internal links as well. There are many SEO tips when it comes to link building, such as using authority sites, articles, blog comments, social media, forums, various profiles, press releases, etc. The key is to compile every quality SEO tip in your arsenal and funnel them into a well-oiled machine; ensuring your success and survival amidst ongoing Google updates and impending penalizations.
