What Does It Cost To Hire A Good Direct Response Copywriter?
What is a direct response copywriter?
A direct response copywriter is a writer who specializes in writing copy that is designed to get the reader to take action.
The action might be to make an immediate purchase, sign up for an online report, make a phone call for a free consultation.
The primary role of the direct response copywriter is to move your prospect through your selling process and deeper into your sales funnel.
Before he or she is able to do that, the copywriter must have a clear understanding of what your selling message is about and who your target market is.
For some marketers, this is a real eye opener. Many don’t have a clear selling message. Worse yet, they haven’t sat down and put together a profile of their ideal target prospect.
Some don’t know how to do it. Others simply don’t understand its critical role in the marketing process. And some find it intimidating.
Whatever the reason, copy that generates results must have this understanding as a foundation.
So when business owners ask me how much it costs to hire me, my answer is nothing.
Investing in the services of a direct response copywriter or marketing consultant who knows how to sell- online and offline – is an investment that should pay itself.
Here’s what I mean:
Consider the results my copywriting เว็บตรง and marketing direction produced for these clients..
“The results so far from the new website have been outstanding. We are currently tracking an increase of 25% in conversions compared to the first week of December 2010 and a 44% increase in conversions over the same time frame last year. What’s more, most of the conversions come through the home page, the program page, comprehensive care link and the how it works page, all of which were written by you!!” -Lisa Borg, VP Marketing, Slimband
“We are now averaging 5-10 qualified leads per day based on the web copy you wrote for our site. It’s unbelievable. We were hardly getting any before.”
– Elizabeth Gomes, Yonge-Eglinton Laser Eye Centre
“So far, the response from the sales letter you wrote has been 12.06% – that’s 25% over our projection.”
– John Andresen, Wyers Direct
I don’t know exactly what those numbers translated to as far as sales revenues were concerned but I went on to do multiple projects for them so it must have more than paid for itself many times over.
In addition to getting a clear understanding of the message and the target market, a professional copywriter must take a lot of information into consideration before ever writing a a single line of copy.
Many business owners don’t realize what goes into creating effective direct response web copy, email marketing campaigns or sales letters.
For example, here’s a snippet from a proposal I sent to a prospect lately who was considering hiring me to create a basic marketing system for her that consisted of new direct response web copy, a free report they could offer as a sales lead generation tool and an autoresponder follow up email campaign to keep prospect “warm” until they’re ready to buy.
