I've been studying various materials on copy-writing to improve my marketing skills, and I came across this little gem, slightly paraphrased

Marketing to developers throws out the usual rules, because they don't see "Finger-licking chicken" but "deceased Gallus gallus domesticus parts, that have been processed and rotated 360 degrees in plant-based hyrdrocarbon oil at 300 degrees Celsius...... "

Hell, yes to the second half! I'm interested in that slogan despite being a vegetarian. OK, so I probably wouldn't buy it for myself but that got my attention in a way "finger-licking chicken" would not. This is basically a technical manual! If dry convoluted precise, pedantic, and phlegmatic prose can be valuable, maybe I can make a six integer a month salary.

Now I'm having trouble with the conventional copywriting parts so I;m wondering if I can build a niche here.

Need

Companies, who sell to developers need people who can write for their audience.

Solution

Copywrite for this(Maybe I can find copywriters to swap my kind of clients for their kind of clients as I go into the future, though that might be what colour lambo thinking.) Upload datasheets, write for headless terminal access via Lynx(no pictures, no videos, keep it simple)

Blocks

Still need basic copy or copywriter to get the clients to pay me to promote their product. (Or at the very least give me free access) Or I need to make enough money elsewhere to pay for these copywriting) I couldn't do the software justice without access to it.

I somehow need to convince the clients that ugly looking site is just what their customers want to see. They don't want pretty pictures. Maybe okay if your concentrating on front end sales.
How valuable are screenshots of a terminal anyway, when you can just say bash> chmod +x ?


Possible pivot/add on
writing job ads that appeal to developers.
