Hi, I'm Deidre. In my posts, I talk about my voyage down the road of self-employment as a web copywriter, my achievements and roadblocks along the way, and what I’m learning as I go (with Marketing Mentor as my guide).
Last time, I shared the positive responses I’ve been receiving to my outreach efforts. One commenter asked:
“Can you publish an example of an introductory email message that you send out to prospective Web designers?”
Sure, here’s the basic idea:
Hi (Name of web designer),
I’d like to introduce myself… (Talk here about how the person might know you, or how you found them: You might know me through…/I was involved in a CFC discussion with you…/I came upon your website…)
I'm Deidre, and I’m a website copywriter. I'm not sure if you ever work with outside copywriters, but if you do, I'd love to be in your loop.
I work as a partner to designers, and I help them when their clients need quick, personality-rich, web and print copy. (If there is something interesting or relevant you found on their website, in relation to you, mention it.)
If you’d like to know more about me, I'd be happy to send over some rates and samples.
Thanks for your time!
