The real test of the strength of your own positioning, messaging and marketing is when the economy is challenging.
Not when clients are flush with cash and enjoying overinflated marketing budgets — as they were over the past three years.
That’s why it’s so important to continually improve your own marketing skills and habits. And that’s why the topic of marketing your business will be a recurring theme in this podcast and in my newsletter for the next few months.
Because, frankly, the past few years have made us soft. It was too easy to land work.
My guest in this week’s episode is Amy Suto, a freelance memoir ghostwriter and Amazon KDP publishing expert. What I find impressive about Amy’s business is that over the course of a few short years she’s been able to go from earning $30 an hour as a freelance writer to earning a whopping $750 an hour.
Not only that, but she’s continually booked solid at that rate. And she does this while spending a big part of the year traveling and working from beautiful locations all around the world.
It almot sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it?
In this episode Amy explains where she started, how she got to her current level of success, what she does to continually attract her ideal clients, and how she can command these ultra-high-end rates.
(Hint: narrowing down your focus is a big part of her secret!)
We talk a lot of strategy, but we also get tactical. It’s a great conversation for any writer, regardless of where you are in your journey.
