This is how you can find great copywriting jobs on LinkedIn. Set the alarm notification system ON for all copywriting jobs listed on LinkedIn. Apply to the most challenging listings and try to get as many interviews as possible. Risk to fail. Try again and keep trying till you find the perfect job for you.
Maybe, you don’t want to be hired at the moment, but job listings can give you a great sense of what is really in demand. See what kind of skillsets they need, which topics they want to cover. Get yourself into their shoes and start publishing engaging content about their specific topics.
For example, in April 2020, we noticed a high demand for Ecommerce Copywriters. We published new content around all hot questions regarding E-commerce. In 50 days, 10 big clients landed our SEO Copywriting Agency in Greece. They wanted services for:
- Website copywriting
- Products descriptions
- Blog content
- SEO optimization
- Social media microcopy
- Email copywriting
- Branding strategy
- SEO strategy
They still trust us for all the new sections they create. Also, they have brought us more new clients that follow their steps. In other words, we didn’t chase them, we only waved our flag and attracted their attention. Pay attention to the market’s needs and create useful content that actually answers to specific needs. Get rid of the old-fashioned “Buyer Persona model” and concentrate on the pain points.
One golden copywriting tip
Each person is a unique Buyer Persona, but specific needs are solid as rocks. Hear the needs. Be the person/source who heals the thirst for specific requests.
Every time you publish new content replying to these specific needs you gradually raise your value. This will help you establish a solid reputation as the best go-to source for certain market requests. When companies and individuals find the solution they need in your published work then more clients will start landing on your doorstep.
Actually, nothing can buy or replace the power of great reputation that comes from word of mouth. Soon even your competitors will trust your content as the best evaluation metric. That’s really huge!
