Earn Your First $1,000 as a Freelance Writer: How to Get High-Paying Clients by Cold Pitching

A lot of exciting things have happened since I announced the Earn Your First $1,000 as a Freelance Writer challenge.  Here are some of the highlights:
  • Thousands of people have expressed interest in the challenge and are following each and every update.
  • The Facebook group for the challenge currently has over 1,700 members.
  • Many members of the group have created their website and gotten feedback through the group.
  • At least five people have made it known that they got accepted to write forThe Huffington Post as a result of the challenge.
Starting today, we will start prospecting for, and pitching, clients; if you’re not sure how to go about this, read my articles on the strategy for the earn your first $1,000 as a freelance writer challenge and how to prospect for clients. These two articles should put things in perspective for you.
That said, if you’re yet to create your writer website, it is important that you do now. Having a website will make it much easier for you to reach your goal of earning $1,000, so read this article to learn how to go about creating your website.
Once you’re set, it’s time to start pitching potential clients. Without further ado, here’s how I go about cold pitching clients. I’m assuming that you already have a list of clients to pitch. If not, go and read my article on how to prospect for clients:

Understand that This is a Number’s Game

Occasionally, people reach out to me with a comment like, “I’ve sent 20 cold pitches and I haven’t gotten a single client.” Wait, 20? Just 20? Then you’re doing it wrong; let’s talk again when you’ve sent 200!
Cold pitching is a number’s game; the people you are pitching are busy people, and they probably get contacted by dozens of people like you every week/month. They can’t hire everybody, and many won’t reply. That shouldn’t be an excuse to stop, however.
Personally, for this challenge, I’m not expecting a client from my cold pitches until I’ve sent at least 300 – 500 pitches; there will probably be a lot of responses, but very few will hire me. That’s the nature of cold pitching, and it’s why it’s called “cold pitching“; with some of the techniques in this article, and proper targeting to ensure we’re pitching the right people, however, we can boost our response rate.
That said, sending these pitches isn’t as difficult as it would seem; I usually work off a template and adjust it accordingly for each client. This saves me time, and if I wanted to send 30 – 50 cold pitches it shouldn’t take me more than three to four hours max (which is usually well worth it when I get a client!).

Decide on Who to Pitch at an Organization

Every organization has someone in charge of its various departments, and you’ll only get the best results if you pitch the right person. For example, pitching the accountant at a company you want to get hired in is recipe for failure; he/she will probably just ignore or delete your email. If you pitch someone in charge of content, however, you have a better chance of success.
Also, you can’t just send your cold pitch to a generic email address (such as “info@” or “support@”) or through a website contact form. If you’re about to do that, STOP. It is recipe for failure. Your cold pitch needs to be addressed to someone at the company you want to pitch, and that person needs to be able to make the decision to hire you, or he/she should be able to refer you to the one making the decisions.
I’ve found that it is usually best to reach out to someone in charge of content if a company has one; it could be the Chief Content Officer, Content Strategist or Chief Content Marketer. If an organization doesn’t have people who fill these roles, you can pitch to someone in charge of marketing; again, this could be the Chief Marketing Officer, Marketing Strategist or some other kind of marketing head. If there’s no clearly defined content/marketing leader but there are people in charge of “digital strategy,” it’s okay to pitch them too since there is a correlation between their role and what you do.
If you really can’t find the right person, pitch the CEO or Founder; I rarely recommend doing this but it’s a good last resort if all else fails.
How to find information about people working at a company: There are two ways I find key people at the organizations I want to pitch:
  • Visit the “team” page of the company website to see a list of their team members or staff; sometimes, this team page could be named “Team,” “Staff,” “Our People” or something similar, or it can simply be on their about page.
  • Since most companies do not have a page that lists their staff, you can visit the company page on LinkedIn. Simply search for the name of the company on LinkedIn and you will have a list of all their employees and their various roles.

How to Find Client Emails

Once you’ve decided on who to pitch, the next step is to find their email address. Now, this can be tricky. Here are my best techniques for finding client email addresses:
On their site: Sometimes, the best place to find the email address of potential clients is on the company website; a lot of companies list the email address of their employees on their website; this could be on the team page, on the contact page or in an individual employee’s bio on the site.
Using Google: Sometimes, finding the email address you want is as simple as using Google. Simply searching for “{contact name} email” will do the job. You can also get creative and try a variation of terms, but the Google search engine is much useful than we give it credit for.
Using LinkedIn + Lusha: The other day I was contacted by Dan Miller about a new innovative app called Lusha. It’s an app that lets you find the email address of almost any LinkedIn profile; you visit the LinkedIn profile of your choice, tell Lusha to find the email and voila… you have the email address you are looking for. It doesn’t work for all LinkedIn profiles, but it works for most.
This app is important because, at the end of the day, anybody worth cold pitching is on LinkedIn; if this can help you find 50 percent of potential client emails, it is worth it!
You can visit the Lusha website to learn more about how Lusha works.
It’s also worth clarifying that the free Lusha plan limits you to 10 emails per month, but that’s a good start.
Using Gmail + Rapportive: If you use Gmail, or Google Apps for email, there’s an app called “Rapportive” that helps you to verify email addresses. Just like Lusha, it uses the LinkedIn database to verify emails. Unlike Lusha, though, it is completely free for unlimited use.
There’s a catch, however: you have to manually suggest the email addresses that Rapportive will verify. You start by installing Rapportive as an app for Gmail, and you type email variations into Gmail’s “To” field (as if you want to send an actual email); Rapportive will then query the LinkedIn database to confirm whether the email is active or not.
Some popular email variations include Firstname.Lastname@website.com, FirstInitial.Lastname@website.com, FirstInitialLastname@website.com, Lastname@website.com, Firstname@website.com, etc.
Using Apps like VoilaNorbert and RocketReach: Perhaps the best of the bunch are apps like Voila Norbert and Rocket Reach. These apps are so simple to use that all you need to do is enter the name of the person you want to pitch and the domain name of the company the person works at and they will automatically find the email address for you.
Again, both apps have a limit for free users; Voila Norbert has a limit of 50 requests while Rocket Reach has a limit of 5 requests.
Email Hunter: This is perhaps the best and most generous app for finding people’s email addresses. You simply add a website and it searches for all the available email addresses on that domain name, you can then filter by the one you are interested in. Its free plan allows a generous 150 searches per month.

How to Write an Effective Cold Pitch

Once you’ve found the email address of the right person to pitch, it is time to send your pitch. I will include 2 example pitches and dissect them below:
Example 1:
Hi {contact name},
I’m reaching out to see if you need someone who can help with content at {company}.
I’m {Your Name}. I’ve been featured in {publication names}.
I’d like to know if you need a freelance writer who can help with your content needs.
I can help with writing blog posts, guest posts, resources, newsletters, developing content/blogging strategy, landing page content and any of your other content marketing needs.
I will be happy to discuss how I can be of help.
Best Regards,
{your name}
The above email works for so many reasons:
  • It addresses the person I’m contacting by name. It doesn’t say “Hey there,” or “Hi,” or “Heya,” or some other generic greeting that spammers can use to batch email a million people at the same time.
  • It starts by establishing my credibility in form of social proof I have; now you see why a core part of our strategy is to get published on authoritative blogs and publications.
  • It quickly expresses the purpose of my email; I want to know if they need freelance writers.
  • It talks about services I offer.
  • It is quick and to the point; no two-page emails, no ramblings about my personal life, etc. Quick and short pitches do the job better than long emails that are basically your life story; busy people do not have time to read such long emails, so they won’t reply. It’s a waste of their time and yours.
Example 2:
Hi {contact name},
I was recently reading your {publication article} article, “{article title},” and it was enlightening. {describe what you gained from the article}
I especially resonated with your article as I was doing research for an article on {a similar topic}
I thought I should reach out to find out if your agency is in need of a freelance writer at the moment; I’m a versatile freelance writer, mostly covering {your niche}, but I can work in any niche. I can do blog posts, ghostwriting, landing page copy, newsletters, ebooks, etc.
Please let me know if you’d like me to send my rates and/or samples of my work.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Best Regards,
{your name}
As you can see, this particular pitch is more personalized than the first example; however, sending 5 – 10 of it daily will give you a much better chance of being hired than the first one above. You also need to modify it heavily to make it tailored to the person you are pitching.
That said, it is also important to ensure that your cold pitches use a catchy headline.

How to Effectively Follow Up: Use The 3 – 7 – 7 Formula

It is important to know that most of the people you pitch won’t reply to your email. There are many reasons why they won’t reply: they could be very busy, they may think they had replied, they may postpone replying you until they forget, or they may have no intention to reply.
Regardless of their reason, you should follow up if you don’t hear back after a while. You will get more replies to your follow ups than to your original pitches. The key to effective follow up is to use my “3-7-7 Formula”; this increases your chances of getting a reply while creating the least resistance with your prospect.
Here’s how it works:
  • 3: Research shows that 90 percent of people who do not reply to your email within 48 hours will never reply. That’s two days. After then it’s safe to follow up. So the first follow up is to be sent three days after sending your original pitch.
  • 7: If you follow up and do not hear back, wait seven days  before sending another follow up. The person could be going through personal issues, or they might just be very busy. Regardless, sending another email too soon will probably irritate them and might make them to blacklist you. Waiting for a week should be safe; that way, they still get reminded without feeling pressurized.
  • 7: If there’s no response to your follow up after the second followup, send a final follow up exactly seven days after your second follow up.
If after one pitch and three follow ups (that’s four emails!) a prospect still didn’t respond, there’s no point contacting them again. Stop emailing them altogether. Most of the people who will respond will respond when you apply the 3-7-7 formula.

The Best Time to Pitch Clients

Once you’re set, you should go ahead and start pitching right? Well, NO. It depends on when you’re reading this article. Here are some tips:
  • Don’t send pitches on weekends; Friday evenings, Saturdays and Sundays are no-nos. These people are probably signing off after a stressful week, and the last thing they want is oh yet another email. Postpone it to the next week. You can make an exceptions for Sundays, though, if you’re working with someone in Israel. The work day in Israel begins on Sunday.
  • Send pitches during work hours if possible; understand the time zone of your potential clients and pitch accordingly.
There You Have It
So there you have it. I just shared everything (I think!) I know about cold pitching; if you have any questions or concerns, join the Facebook group and ask over there.

My STARTUP :

Let me introduce myself. My name is Richard Nata. I am an author, novelist, blogger and ghost writer. My articles, including short stories have been published in magazines and newspapers since 1994. I have written a lot of books, both fiction and non-fiction. So I was a professional in the field of writing, both fiction and non-fiction.

I was born in Jakarta, August 17, 1968.  

In 1988, at the age of 20 years, I started working as an accounting staff. Age 24 years has occupied the position of Finance Manager. Age 26 years as a General Manager.

In 1994, my articles published in magazines and tabloids.

In 1997, I wrote a book entitled "Buku Pintar Mencari Kerja". This book is reprinted as much as 8 times. Through the book, the authors successfully helped tens of thousands of people get jobs at once successful in their careers. They were also successful when moving to work in other places.

In 1998, I started investing in shares on Bursa Efek Indonesia (Indonesia stock exchange). As a result of investing in the stock market then I can provide consulting services for companies that want to go public in Indonesia stock exchange.

BUKU PINTAR DAPAT KERJA GAJI TINGGI PINDAH KERJA GAJI SEMAKIN TINGGI made by retyping the book BEST SELLER of the author, entitled “Buku Pintar Mencari Kerja”. This ebook available on google play.

In 2015, I had the idea of a startup company where the readers can decide for themselves the next story. WASN'T THIS A GREAT IDEA? IF can be realized WILL BE WORTH billions USD. Because CAN PRODUCE FOR MILLIONS OF DOLLARS even tens of millions USD annually. 

In theory, in 10-20 years into the future, my startup income, amounting to hundreds of million USD annually can be obtained easily. AND IF FOLLOWED BY MANY COMPANIES IN THE WHOLE WORLD WILL THEN BE A NEW INDUSTRIAL worth trillions USD. 

To be honest. Currently I'm not having a lot of money. So I start marketing my startup with blogspot.

My STARTUP :


A story with millions of choices in it - looking investor like you.



Try to imagine this. When you're reading a story on the web or blog, you are given two choices. You can choose the next story based on your own choice. After selecting then you can continue reading the story. Shortly afterwards you will be presented back to the 2 other options. The next choice is up to you. Then you continue the story you are reading. After that you will be faced again with 2 choices. So onwards. The more stories you read so the more options you have taken.


If you feel curious then you can re-read the story by changing your selection. Then you will see a different story with the story that you have read previously. The question now is why is this so? Because the storyline will be varying according to your choice. 


I, as the author is planning to make tens of thousands of articles with millions of choices in it. With tens of thousands of articles then you like to see a show of your favorite series on TV for several years. The difference is while watching your favorite TV series, then you can not change the story. Meanwhile, if you read this story then you can alter the way the story according to your own choice.

You might say like this. Sounds like a book "choose your own adventure". Books I read when I was young.

Correctly. The idea is taken from there. But if you read through a book, the story is not so exciting. Due to the limited number of pages. When a child first you may already feel interesting. But if you re-read the book now then becomes no fun anymore because you don't get anything with the amount of 100-200 pages. 

Have you ever heard of game books?  When you were boy or girl, did you like reading game books? I think you've heard even happy to read it.

Gamebooks are sometimes informally called choose your own adventure books or CYOA which is also the name of the Choose Your Own Adventure series published byBantam BooksGamebook - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Gamebook - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A gamebook is a work of fiction that allows the reader to participate in the story by making effective choices. The narrative branches along various paths through the use of numbered paragraphs or pages.

Bantam Books with the Choose Your Own Adventure 

series has produced more than 250 million US 

dollars. While I offer you more powerful than the Choose 

Your Own Adventure. Because of what? Because the 

story that I made much more interesting than the stories 

created by the authors of Bantam Books. You will not get anything just to 100-200 pages. While the story that I created is made up of tens of thousands of articles with millions of choices in it.

For comparison are the books published with the theme "choose your own adventure" produces more than 250 million copies worldwide. If the average price of a book for 5 USD, the industry has produced more than 1.5 billion USD. But unfortunately this industry has been abandoned because the reader begins to feel bored. The last book was published entitled "The Gorillas of Uganda (prev." Search for the Mountain Gorillas ")". And this book was published in 2013.

Based on the above, then you are faced with two choices. Are you interested in reading my story is? Or you are not interested at all. The choice is in your hands.
If you are interested then spread widely disseminated this article to your family, friends, neighbors, and relatives. You can also distribute it on facebook, twitter, goggle +, or other social media that this article be viral in the world. By doing so it is a new entertainment industry has been created.

Its creator named Richard Nata.

The full articles that talks about this: 
  



WHY DO I NEED STARTUP FUNDS FROM INVESTORS? I NEED A LOT OF FUNDS FROM INVESTORS BECAUSE I HAVE TO LOOKING FOR EXPERT PROGRAMMERS(IT).BECAUSE THE DATA IS HANDLED IS VERY LARGE, IT MAY HAVE TO WEAR SOME PROGRAMMERS(IT).

I CAN NOT WEAR SOME FREELANCE PROGRAMMER BECAUSE THE DATA MUST BE MONITORED CONTINUOUSLY FROM VIRUSES, MALWARE, SPAM, AND OTHERS.

IN ADDITION FUNDS FROM INVESTORS IS ALSO USED TO BUY SERVERS WITH VERY LARGE CAPACITY. FUNDS ARE ALSO USED TO PAY EMPLOYEE SALARIES AND OPERATIONAL COSTS OF THE COMPANY.

FUNDS CAN ALSO BE USED FOR ADVERTISING AND OTHER MARKETING STRATEGIES.FUNDS CAN ALSO BE USED TO ADVERTISE MY STARTUP AND OTHER MARKETING STRATEGIES.

IF I GET A VERY LARGE FUND, THE PART OF THE FUNDS USED TO TRANSLATE THE STORY INTO VARIOUS LANGUAGES.With more and more languages, the more readers we get.
WITH MORE AND MORE READERS, THE MORE REVENUE WE GET. 

AS AN INVESTOR THEN YOU DO NOT HAVE TO FEEL ANXIOUS ABOUT YOUR FUNDS. BECAUSE YOUR FUNDS WILL NEVER BE LOST BECAUSE IN 3-5 YEARS YOU HAVE RETURNED THE FUNDS COUPLED WITH PROFIT.
THIS BUSINESS IS ONE AND THE ONLY ONE IN THE WORLD.

If we can make a good story, so that the readers will 

come again and again for further reading the story then 

our earnings will continue to grow and will never 

diminish. This is due to new readers who continued  to 

arrive, while long remained loyal readers become our 

customers.

So that the number of our readers will continue to 

multiply over time. With the increasing number of loyal 

readership then automatically the amount of income we 

will also grow larger every year. The same thing 

happened in yahoo, google, facebook, twitter, linkedin, 

and others when they still startup.

Deuteronomy {28:13} And the LORD shall make thee the 

head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and 

thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the LORD thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do [them: ]

Try to imagine this. If I give a very unique story. It was the first time in the world. But the world already know this story even liked it. Because the world love the game books. While the story that I made is the development of game books.
Do you Believe if I dare say if I will succeed because my story will be famous all over the world as Harry Potter?
I believe it. Not because I was the author of the story, but because of the story that I made is unique and the only one in the world. 
Income from my startup :
1. Ads. With millions of unique visitors, the price of the ads will be expensive.
2. Affiliate marketing. In addition to advertising, we are also able to put up some banner from affiliate marketing.
3. Contribution of the readers. If you have a million readers and every reader to pay one US dollar per year then you will get the income of one million US dollars per year. 
If you have a million readers and every reader to pay one US dollar per month then you will get as much revenue twelve million US dollars per year.
4. Books and Comics. After getting hundreds of thousands to the millions of readers of the story will be made in books and the form of a picture story (comics).
5. Movies. If we have a good story with millions of readers then quickly we will be offered to make a film based on the story.
6. Merchandise related to characters. After the movies there will be made an offer for the sale of goods related to the characters.
7. Sales. With millions of email that we have collected from our readers so we can sell anything to them.
    Each income (1-7) worth millions to tens of millions of US dollars. 
    Because each income (1-7) worth millions to tens of millions of US dollars. Then in 10-20 years into the future, AI will be earning hundreds of million USD annually.
So how long do you think my story that I made could gather a thousand readers? Ten thousand readers? One hundred thousand readers? A million readers? Five million readers? Ten million readers? More than ten million readers?
But to get all of it of course takes time, can not be instant. In addition, it takes hard work, big funds and placement of the right people in the right positions.
By advertising, viral marketing, strong marketing strategies and SEO then a million readers can be done in less than a year. Ten million readers can be done in two to three years.
This is the marketing strategy of my startup.
When hundreds of thousands or millions of readers already liked my story then they have to pay to enjoy the story that I made.
If you are a visionary then you will think like this.
With the help of my great name in the world of business, my expertise in marketing, advertising, marketing by mouth, viral marketing, then collecting a million readers to ten million readers will be easy to obtain. Is not that right?
The question now is what if people like my story as they like Harry Potter? You will get tens of millions or even hundreds of millions of email addresses from readers. With that much email, we can sell anything to the readers.
Since April 2013, Wikipedia has around 26 million articles in 285 languages are written by 39 million registered users and a variety of anonymous people who are not known from other parts of the world.  Web ranked by Alexa, Wikipedia is a famous website number 6 which has been visited by 12% of all Internet users with 80 million visitors every month and it is only from the calculation of America.

resource : http://www.tahupedia.com/content/show/136/Sejarah-dan-Asal-Mula-Wikipedia

If no Wikipedia then need hundreds of thousands to millions of books required to make 26 million articles in 285 languages into books.

With the Wikipedia then people started to leave to read a book or books to seek knowledge about a subject or many subjects.

The same thing will happen. Read a story in a book or books to be abandoned. Read a story with millions of choices on the web or blog is far more interesting than reading a book or books. 

So what happens next? In 10-20 years ahead then read a story in a book to be abandoned. Otherwise my startup will grow and continue to develop into a new entertainment industry.

New entertainment industry, where I was a forerunner startup will continue to evolve. 
Therefore, in 10-20 years into the future, my startup will be earning hundreds of million USD annually.

So do not delay. Invest your money immediately to my startup. Take A Look. There are so many advantages if you want to invest in my startup.
WHY YOU SHOULD INVEST YOUR MONEY RIGHT NOW? .
IF YOU INVEST YOUR FUNDS IN ONE, TWO OR THREE YEARS INTO THE FUTURE, YOU MAY BE TOO LATE.
BECAUSE IN 1-3 YEARS INTO THE FUTURE THEN I'VE GOT THE FUNDS. THE FUNDS CAN COME FROM SOME INVESTORS, LOANS FROM BANKS OR FROM ADVERTISEMENTS POSTED ON MY BLOG.

IF I'VE GOT A LARGE AMOUNT OF FUNDS THEN I'VE NO NEED OF YOUR FUNDS. SO INVEST NOW OR NOT AT ALL.

My BLOG started to be written January 11, 2015. TODAY, MAY 30, 2015, THE NUMBER OF CLICKS HAS REACHED 56,750. SO FAR SO GOOD.

If I get big funds from investors then with a quick story that I wrote will spread throughout the world.

So I got acceleration because I can put ads in a large variety of media such as Google AdWords, Facebook, and others. I also can perform a variety of other marketing strategies.
If I do not get funding from investors then my story would still spread throughout the world. But with a longer time, Slow but sure.

So either I get funding from investors or not, the story that I wrote will remain spread throughout the world. Ha ... 7x

So don't worry, be happy.

My advice to you is you should think whether the data that I have provided to you makes sense or not .
If my data reasonable then immediately invest your funds as soon as possible.

Then we discuss how we plan further cooperation.

Thank you.
Lord Jesus bless you.
Amen
P.S. The offer letter I gave also to the hedge funds and 

venture capital and other major companies 

in the entire 

world. So who is fast then he will get it.


P.P.S. In addition, there is one more thing I 

want to tell you. If a story can generate tens 

of millions of US dollars, then what if made 

many stories? Then why do not you make 2, 3 or many stories? You will get hundreds of million USD annually.
