Like the automobiles of old, there are two keys. Of course the same two keys won’t open every door or start every engine. But, providing you with two of many keys might be what you need to start your vehicle of financial freedom.
“Writers write”. Every writer has heard that message in some way, shape, or form. The key to that message is to actually put it to use. Writers do write. It doesn’t matter what you’re writing about or who you are writing for, you write. There are times that you write to write. Hone your skills, sharpen your message, or practice typing faster. You need to write.
Be a “Yes man” or a “Yes woman”. When a client approaches you about a writing assignment, say yes. Unless it is a complete attack on your morals and common sense, say yes. Believe it or not your client will have the information that you need to succeed. On top of that your clients are willing to work with you to ensure that they get the best writing that you can provide. That is not to say that you can slack off. This is your business and you should conduct yourself as a professional.
When you write and when you say “Yes”, you will find success. As with all businesses you need to take the clients that offer you work and you need to hone your craft. Improve on the skills that you already have. Accept the clients that offer you the chance to write and make money. These are two of the keys that you will need to create great copy.
