"Email templates you can use to pitch your service(s) to clients"

For freelance writers, designers, developers and marketers

A Thread.
Freelancing sites are not the only place you can find work.

In a previous thread, I showed you how to get freelance and remote gigs through sending of cold emails, twitter and google. Most of these methods involve contacting the clients directly and sending your pitch via email.

"Hacks on how to find remote jobs through cold emailing, google, and twitter"

For freelancers and remote job seekers!

A Thread

Here are some examples:

"20 copywriting tools/resources for freelancers and agencies and how they work"

A Thread
If you just want to get to the juicy bits, please feel free to skip. But if you’re wondering why I chose to pursue a career as a freelance copywriter, then read on! My name is Olamide and I’ve worked in digital space for quite some years now.
I’ve been lucky enough to work for an agency, for myself and even a short stint in-house at the beginning of my career. I’ve worked in paid social media, PPC and SEO…so why did I leave that all behind for copywriting? For me, it was a personal choice.

So let’s jump into my favorites!
