    Hey Fastlane members and guests,


    I am learning copywriting through reading, videos and a paid one-on-one mentorship with Sinister Lex. I am receiving top training by Lex and he critiques my pieces so I not only grow as a copywriter, but always provide powerful copy for my clients.


    The niche I am looking to get into is real-estate copywriting.


    I was banned from my original clientele source, Upwork, due to suggesting payment through Paypal for a job, oops, and I now have to go the direct-marketing, ad, and cold-call route to find clients. Though I am having a blast doing it because it is giving me the opportunity to write copy for myself!


    I am looking for a foot in the door in the real-estate industry. Does anyone know someone in real-estate who needs good copy for listings, emails, articles or ads?


    Below is a pdf of the narrative stories I crafted to drive leads for 2 homes. Check out my work and see if you like it!


    Thank you,

    Jaylon

    Note: This is a paid placement so it falls within the rules of the marketplace.

    Good luck Jaylon.

    Hey guys,

    Just following up on this. Jaylon hit a minor snag early on, but he's working really hard to overcome it.

    So if you know someone in real-estate (or a related industry) who needs any copy at all, please reach out.

    Doesn't matter if it's a few blog posts, social media, ads etc.

    Like he said, he's looking for a foot in the door.

    Right now he's tried:

    • Direct email
    • LinkedIn Connections
    • Craigslist Gigs
    • Sales calls (coming soon)

    He's a hard worker, making a lot of progress, and despite the challenge, he's not giving up.

    If you know someone who'd be interested in good copy at an affordable price, please reach out.

    Thanks!

    P.S. Hang in there Jaylon! One foot in front of the other.

    Thanks for the reply snowbank, I appreciate it.

    All I can say about my skills is that I'm learning from one of the best (SinisterLEx)! He also edits my copywriting and makes sure I only provide quality work so I learn and grow.

    Hey @snowbank, thanks for the offer. Jaylon has improved a lot from where he started. He has some real estate examples and possibly a sales letter he could share. I'm not directly editing Jaylon's writing - I make comments and suggestions and he has to make changes and improvements on his own during the course of his mentorship.

    Where he creates value is his openness to feedback and willingness to take action, such as sending out sales letters by direct mail. Most writers who have those two traits can be valuable for a client if they're willing to work together until they get results. Once Jaylon learns the audience and how to write for them, he would free up time by handling emails and other such tasks.

    If you're primarily interested in the RE vertical then maybe add that to the thread title?

    There's a few realtors in the forum and it might entice some of them to click through and read your offer.
