The Importance of Being Blatant

I look forward to breaking through every barrier which will lead me to victory road…

I’ve chanced by arm at offering free digital marketing/ copywriting services to my fellow self-employment/ job seekers through a job centre scheme which I myself am attending. Because, why not?

With every professional introduction or proposal I make, the worst response I can receive is, “No” –

And the Law of Averages dictates, what? That the more I seek, the more I’ll find! The more I prospect, the more leads I’ll gain.

Like I’ve said and repeated in previous posts, “Ruth Klempner” is yet to make a professional name for herself:

As far the working world is concerned, I’m just a 32 year old woman on universal credit. Nobody has any reason to trust me or believe in me.

However, since I have such unfettered belief in myself, I am wholly unperturbed by the doubt of others! 

I gained voluntary copywriting experience through Striver.online, but since gaining my qualification and building my website, it has been difficult to gain further experience. 

I provide a fantastic service to small and ambitious business owners, and my belief in “pressure and time” will drive my continued exploration of a variety of lead, and voluntary, avenues.

This week I will further explore networking avenues including those available through Enterprise Nation, but I’d also like to break into Twitter properly –

It’s an unusual platform since character limits are so low and so there is a lot of non-content. BUT, I’m probably just looking in the wrong places…

I don’t want to be another account parroting well-known sales or copywriting techniques, and I don’t want to only be advertising services and the benefits of outsourcing experts.

I want to use Twitter to engage with suitable communities, such as communities of small business owners or digital marketing service providers. But I think I’m going to have to be smarter and more specific than that, and connect with professionals and commentators –

Like it’s name suggests, Twitter is about conversation. Not pitching. There’s still lots of preaching, but I’m not planning to use it for that either.

In years gone by, I used Twitter to engage in politics talk (and I’ve also been a keen Trekkie talking actors and star ships!), but I have to say, I’m finding it very difficult to know where or how to start as a copywriter on Twitter.

I know there are copywriter communities, but I will have to think about how to create original content – like I have said, I don’t want to simply repeat decades old (but no less relevant) sales techniques.

As ever, let’s see what I can come up with! Building a business online does require so much patience. But this time and effort is all necessary to achieve the success I crave.

So, bring it on! I look forward to breaking through every barrier which will lead me to victory road…
