1. Infographics

The first rule of infographic writing is: don’t make it look like an infographic.

I know that sounds strange, but you have to understand what makes an infographic. The easiest way to put it is that an infographic is a graphic representation of information, data, or knowledge meant to present complex information quickly and clearly.

Let’s break down the word “infographic” and see how we can use these words in our copywriting efforts:

Infographic–This means “in-formative,” which means the content must be educational (and usually funny).  It should also be visually pleasing so that people want to share it with their friends on social media.

2. Streaming Video

Streaming video is one of the most effective ways to communicate with your audience. It’s also a great way to engage your audience and build relationships with them, which will help you build trust. 

This can be accomplished by answering questions on a live stream, having a discussion about an upcoming event or product launch, or even just chatting about something random in an informal setting.

Live streaming can be done from anywhere – as long as you have access to a high-speed internet connection! You can use simple tools like Skype or Google Hangouts if you don’t have professional equipment.

3. Sales Letters

Sales Letters. These are short, focused, and to the point. They’re written to sell a product or service directly like an ebook that teaches you how to start your own business or indirectly say, by driving traffic to a landing page where they can sign up for tomorrow’s webinar on ‘Ten Ways To Raise Money For Your Project.’

Case Studies/Testimonials. The format here is simple: someone writes about their experience with your product or service in as much detail as possible, explaining why it worked for them and what benefits they got from using it (and how much money they saved!).

Educational Articles & Webinars. These are types of content that teach people something valuable; these pieces might be long but they don’t have sales goals because their focus is on educating rather than selling.

4. White Papers

White papers are an important element of your marketing toolkit. They’re a form of marketing collateral, and they let you explain a particular topic in detail.

White papers are typically used to help sell products or services. They can be written by an expert, which helps give them authority. It’s also common for white papers to be published online as pdf files or other documents that people can download and read at their leisure.

5. Brochures

Brochures are one of the most popular marketing tools out there. They’re a great way to get your message across in a concise and eye-catching way, and they make it easy for people to share with their friends, family members, and coworkers. 

If you want your audience to get excited about what you have to offer (or just give them more information), then this is probably one of the best ways to do it!

Successful copywriting requires understanding the psychology of your audience. Uncover the Copywriter’s Secret Weapon and master the techniques to convince and engage effectively.

6. Landmark Pages

A landmark page is a new page on your website that serves as an introduction to your business. It’s like a welcome mat, where you can tell people what you do and why they should be excited about it.

Landmark pages are a great way to get more traffic to your site because they give people reasons to come back again and again. They’re also an easy way to generate social shares: if someone finds something valuable on one of these pages, then he or she can easily share it with friends via Facebook or Twitter.

7. Ebooks, Coaching, And Training Books

Ebooks: An ebook is a digital book that can be read on a computer screen, mobile device, or e-reader. They can take several hours or just a few minutes to read. Some ebooks are straight-up information, others are more like storybooks with characters and plot lines (like the books I write). 

If you’re looking for an easy way to sell your business expertise without being in front of people all the time, this might be it!

Coaching Programs: Coaching programs offer members access to your expertise over time via video calls, webinars, and live events and they help you build trust in your expertise through interaction with clients on an ongoing basis. You’ll also likely get feedback from participants which will help shape future offerings (more on that later).

Training Programs: These long-term courses usually start from around $100 per month and go up from there as they include more content than coaching programs do include private messaging between students and teachers which makes them more effective at teaching new skills.

They provide one on one support throughout each lesson plan instead of simply uploading videos online where no real human interaction takes place (which we know isn’t ideal!).

8. Banners And Slideshows (Very Niche)

Banners and slideshows are very niche because they’re not your typical product. They’re often used as a sales tool by freelancers and businesses to showcase their work, or they can be created for special occasions like weddings, baby showers, birthdays, or anniversaries.

What’s great about selling banners and slideshows is that there’s no competition! There aren’t many people doing this so if you sell them well you’ll have an easy time earning money from your copywriting skills.

9. Referral Programs (Very Niche)

Affiliate marketing is an easy way to make money with your website. But if you want to get good at it, there are a few things you can do that take the passive nature of affiliate marketing and turn it into something more active.

One of these things is referral programs. Referral programs are where you reward someone who sends business your way by giving them a cut of whatever they sell (often 5-10% depending on the type). This means that people will be incentivized to send their friends and family business through your site because they’ll get paid for doing so.

This works well with many niches because having customers come back again and again, becomes more likely once they have been introduced to both products or services and the person who sold them those products/services (if not all three). 

In other words: referrals work best when there’s some kind of service being provided along with the product being sold! Some examples include:

A book reviewer offering free books as part of their review process

A web developer offering free hours for new clients

10. Online Affiliate Programs (Very Niche)

Online affiliate programs are a great way to make money. You simply promote products and services via links, which you can do on your website or blog, or other people’s websites and blogs. If someone buys something from one of your links, you earn a commission (usually around 10-25%).

For example, if I wrote an article for my website about how I use canvas shoes for hiking in the summer heat and then included a link at the end that says “Buy these shoes,” that’s considered affiliate marketing because when people click through from my site to buy those shoes with my link listed as an affiliate code, 

I’ll get some sort of commission based upon how much those people spend when they visit their site (it might be 5% or 10%, depending on the company).

You can earn quite a lot doing this because there are millions of products available online—you just need to find ones that fit your niche!

11. Articles For Other Blogs, Magazines, And Websites (Also Very Niche)

When it comes to writing articles for other blogs and websites, you can get started right away.

Write about what your audience wants to read.

Get paid by the word (or post).

You don’t need a fancy website or resume/CV  just write a list of topics you want to write about and send them over via email with a link to your blog or portfolio site if you have one.

Remember: If they want someone who knows more than the average writer on their team, then they will pay top dollar for it!

12. Search Engine Optimization (#13 Is Out There Too, But This Is It!)

Search engine optimization is an area of copywriting where you can make a lot of money, but it’s also very competitive.

SEO is an area where you need to know the different types of search engines, keywords and how they work, and what people are looking for when they do searches on Google or Bing, or other search engines. 

You need to know what people look for in their queries and what they expect when they hit your site (or pages) after searching on Google or Bing. You need to know what content is needed on your site so that it will rank highly on the search results pages (SERPs). 

And finally, SEO requires testing! You have to test everything from headlines to descriptions and meta-tags again and again until you find out what works best and then keep doing it over time because things change with each passing day which makes this field a bit more complicated than most others I work in as a copywriter but also very rewarding if done right!

Crafting copy that motivates action without sounding pushy is an art worth mastering. Dive into the guide on How to Write Copy That Makes People Take Action to connect with your readers and drive conversions effectively.

Copywriting Can Be A Lot Of Fun And Profitable If You Know How To Do It

I love copywriting because there are so many different ways you can get into the field: from freelancing on Upwork to owning your own freelance business, to working for a company or even becoming an in-house writer for an agency. 

Because of its flexibility and variety, copywriting is a great way to express your creativity and help others at the same time! It’s also an excellent way for aspiring writers (and non-writers) who want their names out there by providing good content without sacrificing any time or effort on their part besides writing.
