    Hey guys and gals!

    I did work for this marketer who is considered top notch, who just paid me. I had told him that I was still getting my feet wet and he gave me a stellar review AND paid me $1500.00! He said I can use him as a reference anytime.

    I had been trolling trying to get a feel for what people should and should not do. DP definitely led me in the right direction. I really thank the contributors of the copywriting section!

    This is so cool, I like doing this copywriting stuff.

    Congratulations on landing such a big job mate. Not off DP, I presume? :p

    The guy plucked me from DP. He asked me if I was available and it went from there.

    I am still in shock that this forum is worth its weight in knowledge!

    To be honest, I was quite surprised.

    I have a knack for writing sales copy. That's what makes me the happiest. I can't stop thinking how I scoured the copywriting section, read posts from the internetauthor and jmattern(sp) Some great providers here.

    I'm surprised you actually managed to find someone willing to pay you $1500 on DP... congrats, though, if that's the case. It's definitely proof positive that those with the experience and talent can make a lucrative income from freelancing. Perhaps this will inspire freelance writers who are selling themselves short to increase their rates!

    You are one of the ones that I had seen posting around here. All I can say is THANKS to whoever has this site for the copywriting section.

    The other forums I know and troll seem to always be negative and try to be superior to the other one. I like two forums and I just can't say thank you enough.

    That was the crazy thing, I didnt ask him to pay me that amount. He told me that he pays alot of money for all sorts of things of quality.

    I do tend to lurk in the Copywriting section from time to time.

    Enjoy your success! It's always a great feeling to find clients who understand the importance of paying writers what they are truly worth.

    My friends tell me it was my one time lucky break. I will remain positive though.

    I have some tips for people who are looking to get out there in freelancing.

    1. If you are new, and starting out. I understand wanting to get business but have confidence in your ability. There are already enough penny a word workers. Raise the bar to like .06-.07 a word.

    2.Don't be desperate because 1. you'll burn out and you'll be a bigger trouble than what you started. 2. you'll have nothing to show for it.

    3. Soak up all the information you can. Follow others that seem to have successes, but follow this step closely. Just because someone seems to have a gazillion posts, doesn't mean they are meaningful. Go check out there history, see what they are saying. You will find some gold nuggets buried.

    4. Troll around and take in the atmosphere. Offer help rather than your price charts. It's ways better for business this way, because they'll see you as a helper. Know your boundaries, because some will take advantage of your kindness quite fast, if they pick up on this.

    5. Most importantly, enjoy yourself, the people around you and have fun. Keep in mind to know when to be professional.

    Did I mention to stand your ground and be assertive? It's ok to speak your mind and tell people what you are thinking.

    I wish anyone venturing in freelancing the best of luck.

    Jim

    Your friends are misinformed.

    Don't get sucked into the unprofessional $2 per project mentality. Hone in on your ability and get paid what you're worth.

    The world is full of well-paying jobs and projects for professional copywriters.
