“What’s the Fastest Way to Earn a Living as a Writer?”
From Rebecca Matter, President, AWAI
It’s the question I get asked via email and on Facebook most often:
“I need to know which program would get me started making money sooner rather than later, with the most bang for the buck, with complete information on how to find clients and how to charge for my services.”
Put simply, “What’s the fastest way to earn a living as a writer?”
My answer every single time: Write emails!
In today’s e-commerce era, businesses of all shapes and sizes (from your local mom ‘n’ pop to your larger Fortune 100s and 500s) want and need emails written.
That’s why when it comes to launching your career and getting paid to write in the shortest time possible, writing email copy gives you every possible advantage. Take a look:
- Easy to learn. You could realistically learn how to write email copy in less than a week. In fact, I have personally seen some folks become competent at it in less than a week.
- Writing is fun and simple. At most, writing a single email may take up to an hour. The more of them you write, the quicker you’ll get. I know a few professionals who can write a single email for a client in as little as 20 minutes.
- Plenty of work. Any business with a website or online presence can use email copy. Why? Emails are the cheapest and most effective way to stay in touch with their past, present, and future customers. And any business that is serious about making more money is going to email their customers on a regular basis. That’s where you come in.
- Better-than-average pay. Even if you are new to writing email copy, you could realistically charge $100-$250 per email you write. Most potential clients will need anywhere from 3-10 emails at a time. That adds up to anywhere from $300-$2,500+ per project.
Another neat perk about writing email copy is that once you get your foot in the door with a client, it can easily lead to more and bigger paying projects.
Email is a cheap way for a client to test your copy. So they really have nothing to lose. The client’s risk is minimal, meaning you have a very good chance to “wow” them.
The Easiest Copy You’ll Ever Write
Why is writing email copy such a quick skill to learn?
Because the projects are short, sweet, and to the point.
For example, one day you might be writing an email to introduce a new product …
“He is a master!”
“Jay White is a specialist in writing the email autoresponder series, at which he is a master.
“The reason most online marketers don't use the autoresponder series more often is the cost and time required to produce it – there are simply too many other priorities (like writing your landing page or info product) that take precedence.
“But any time you allow a visitor to register on a page without serving him an autoresponder series (and we all do it), you are leaving money on the table.
“Now, with Jay's formula, you can learn to write your own autoresponder emails, enabling you to increase conversions, upsells, and cross-sells – for your own sites or your clients.”
– Bob Bly, “America’s Top Copywriter”
“Desperate for Writers”
“[Email copy] is a lucrative niche that is desperate for the type of writers trained in your method. Thanks for the excellent content, Jay – I am inspired!"
– Julie Herckenrath, Professional Copywriter
“Copy that blows their minds!”
“Talk about excited! Thanks to Jay, I've already produced email copy for clients that blows their minds!”
– Dot Pecson
“Jay can walk the walk.”
“Not all hot-hand writers can teach, but Jay can walk the walk and talk/teach, too … with enthusiasm, clarity, and grace.”
– Curtis Tuck
“The best copywriting teacher I’ve ever seen.”
“Jay White is the best copywriting coach I've ever seen. Unlike others who teach copywriting, he doesn't throw a bunch of information at you to make sense of by yourself. He guides you through email copywriting step by step. He explains what is effective and why, and highlights common errors.”
– Melody Brooks
“Take your writing skills to the next level.”
“I'd recommend this program to anyone wanting to improve their broadcast and autoresponder emails. Even if you're already an expert copywriter, Jay can take your email writing skills to the next level.”
– Perry Droast
“2 emails at $290 each.”
“Things starting to warm up on the [email copy] front – recently got a client … 2 emails at $290 each.”
– Mark McClure
Another day you might write a series of autoresponder emails – a series of up to 7 short emails that are automatically sent to a new prospect who just opted in to your client’s email list.
Perhaps another day you’ll write a simple story that entertains and educates your client’s audience and continues to build a relationship.
The variety of emails you’ll be working on keeps things fun and fresh.
But here’s the thing –
No matter what kind of email you’re writing, the same foundational principles will apply. And that’s why this is such a great little niche.
In just a few days, you can learn how to write these emails and be well on your way to earning a solid income as a writer.
Best of all, thousands of businesses around the globe are HUNGRY for email copy. They need someone to write emails for every product they launch … every new email list they create … and every new affiliate offer they want to promote, and much, much more.
And if they like what they see from you, they’ll keep coming back …
How Soon Do You Want To Live The Writer’s Life?
I ask, because once you decide to focus on this one area of writing, you can write your own ticket. And you can truly do it as quickly or as slowly as you’d like.
It doesn’t matter what your background is or what kind of writing style you have right now.
That’s because we’ve brought in the best in the industry to show you how to write and specialize in email copy. His name is Jay White, and he earns a comfortable six-figure income solely by writing short, fun emails for a small handful of clients.

For example, you will learn:
- How to craft persuasive emails that’ll have clients chomping at the bit to hire you … and keep you busy for months to come.
- How to get your “head right” before you write a single email. (This is Jay’s personal “secret weapon.” It’s what lets him write an email in as little as 15 minutes – with rarely any editing needed afterward!)
- The 3 most important questions you need to ask yourself before writing your first word of email copy.
- How to write the most crucial part of any email. (There’s no way you can succeed as an email copywriter without knowing this.)

- The secret to pushing your prospects’ “hot buttons” – without “selling.”
- How to create an irresistible email subject line that DEMANDS to be opened. Knowing just this one thing will make you seem like a true pro and marketing genius to your clients … especially when they see the instant improvement in results.

To your (fast!) writing success,
Here’s what your fellow colleagues are saying about Email Copy Made Easy:
“Rebecca – In April, I emailed you asking about the quickest way to make money web writing and you told me writing [email copy]. I just wanted to say thank you – it was the best advice I ever got. I signed up for Jay White's Email Copy Made Easy and loved writing emails.
“Now, just 4 months later, I have my first retainer client writing emails for the self-improvement market, and I get enquiries every week. I can't believe how many people need great copy out there. The opportunities are endless …
“I am so excited about the new life I'm going to have with my family. The promises made by AWAI are very real and can work for anyone who wants to give themselves a better life. I'm counting the days until I can give notice to my regular job and become a copywriter full-time.
“Again, thanks so much. I never would have taken this path without your advice. I owe my future to AWAI.”
– Michelle Durham, Torrington, CT
“As someone who is constantly learning and improving, I've taken my fair share of copywriting-related training. Some, you just sort of muddle through because you need the info. Then there are the rare few that you actually enjoy. That's Jay's Email Copy Made Easy. I liked the audio-based format and especially appreciated the examples that he critiqued after every module. I loved his approach so much that I'm officially adding autoresponder and email copywriting to my lineup of services. After using Jay's techniques on just one email I sent to a particular list, it ended up being the second-highest pulling email ever. Pretty impressive! Thanks, Jay! You've got a real winner here.”
– Karon Thackston, Elgin, SC
“Offered a Job on the Spot with a Nice Monthly Retainer”
“After finishing just the second module of Jay White’s Email Copy Made Easy program, I got a little cocky and decided to send an email promoting my services to a fairly big Internet marketer. He was so impressed with my writing, he didn’t even ask for samples or references. He offered me a job on the spot with a nice monthly retainer. I went on to get three other clients by doing email promotions, all on monthly retainers. I now have time to take my kids to the zoo in the middle of the day, go out to lunch with friends, and do other cool things I enjoy. I couldn’t have done it without AWAI and Jay’s program!”
– Rachel Karl, McMinnville, OR
“Template for Success”
“I now have a template for success. I already knew the power of [email copy]. Some of the ones I wrote made me a lot of money. But until I bought Jay White's Email Copy Made Easy program, I didn't realize there was a formula for creating consistently successful emails. There is, and Jay pins it down so well in this program that I now have a template for success.”
– Jamie Sylvian
“First paid assignment – even before finishing the program!”
“Well, I got my first paid assignment – even before I was done with the program! I’ve been telling various people I’ve networked with over the years what I’m up to, and in casual conversation, it led to a real paying assignment – $3,000 for about 1 week’s work for writing an email and direct mail sales campaign. And there will be more work on the heels of this project …”
– Mike P., Coeur d’Alene, ID
“[Jay] brought it ALL together for me in a practical way, and gave me the gentle kick in the pants I needed to get serious about my online copywriting career. Thanks, Jay!!!”
