Connecting With Clients

Now that you’ve learned how to write your own bio, you can apply the knowledge to write them for other people.

This is a goldmine, as people don’t enjoy writing bios about themselves, and when they do, they often don’t do it well! This opens a great opportunity for you to write their bios for them, or even do a full profile makeover.

Don’t forget serious business people are happy to pay $500 for a really good bio. You’ll be able to charge more for a full profile makeover.

MARKETING YOURSELF

To get your very first client, take a long close look at the profile summaries of people 
you know and consider how you could improve them. Tactfully approach them and suggest how you could improve their bio, helping them gain more attention for all the right reasons.

If you need to build on your own profile and want to add some valuable feedback by way of endorsements and recommendations, you could offer to do your first few bios at a discounted rate of $100, in return for the person giving you a LinkedIn endorsement and recommendation.

Always be professional and request payment in advance, just as you would for any other copywriting job. You can also offer two free revisions within a specified time period.

As I said in part one, making the right connections can be a really big help to get you started. To help with this, it’s a good idea to take your LinkedIn account the next level. 
To do this, you can:

1. Add a Company Page

2. Get involved with Groups

3. Interact with Other LinkedIn Members

4. Write Articles and Blogs on LinkedIn
