How I earn $450/Hour Writing Emails For Clients . . .
. . . and how I earn 3x that much writing emails for myself (more about that further down this letter).
Let's not beat around the bush:
If I could show you how to earn $1000 in one day by writing a few emails for clients from the snuggle comfort of your couch, would you be interested?
How about if I showed you how to land writing contracts with clients who happily pay $4K-$10K per month (per client) just to write emails?
What if I could show you how I write one email for my own business and get sales results like this every single time I hit "send":
And then write another email the next day for sales like this:
Etc. etc. repeated over and over again.
THIS IS THE POWER OF EMAIL!
And yes, I am screaming that because I need more people to realize what opportunity there is in learning how to type things on a screen, sending it to people via email, and making sales because of it.
Now before we all start seeing dollar signs, let me be perfectly transparent and frank:
Anyone Can Become A Master Email Writer If They’re Willing To Re-think What “Email” Means
Clients like paying email writers because email is STILL the #1 driver of online sales worldwide. (SOURCE: GetResponse article titled "Why Email Is The Best Marketing Channel")
In fact, on average, for every $1 that a client invests in email marketing, they will see a return of $44 or more. (SOURCE: Data & Marketing Association Survey)
Imagine a machine where you could put in $1 and it would kick out $44 over and over and over again. How many times would you keep putting in $1?
That’s why clients love hiring email writers.
But . . .
. . . there’s a BIG problem right now in the email writing industry.
You see, when most people think of getting paid to write emails (whether they are writing for clients or writing for themselves) they picture having to write something like this for spammy clients:
I call these “booty call” emails.
It’s the email that someone sends to you when they want something—usually money—and it's so embarrassingly obvious they just want to sell you something that it's almost a joke.
Often, you won’t hear from these people for months, then all-of-a-sudden it’s “Oh hey friend, long time no chat, CANYOUBUYMYSTUFFNOW!?!?”
It’s spammy. It’s aggressive. It’s hyped up. It’s awful.
And the worst part about “booty call” emails is they offer ZERO value.
It’s only “give me, give me, give me.”
The good news for people like you and me who hate that kind of email is . . .
. . . those kinds of emails don’t actually work anymore.
These days, a good email campaign is what we call in the business:
“Nurture sequencing” emails.
Aka: “Let’s build a long-term relationship by adding value over time.”
The problem right now in the industry is that MOST email writers don’t get this. They are still trying to force “booty call” emails into inboxes . . .
. . . and it just isn’t working.
That’s why the top 1% of email writers today are completely re-thinking how they approach the inbox.
Every single one of my clients who earn more than $10,000,000 a year from their email lists use this nurture first approach.
Exactly ZERO of them use the “booty call” email.
I built my own $1,000,000/year company using nothing but:
A little bit o' traffic from Facebook
A few good offers (like this one)
Value based emails
It's the same way I built up my Freelancing career, and it's even how I sell my fiction books.
Traffic + offer + emails = sales.
That's all it takes for my clients to make money.
It's all it takes for me to make money.
The key: Don't be a spammer.
So, if you were worried that the only way to make a living writing emails was to sell your soul for a bag full of doubloons . . . think again.
The ONLY way to make money with email in 2019 is value first.
When you get that right . . .
2 Ways to Make Money Writing Emails
By learning how to write value-based emails, two options open up for you to earn income:
Option #1. You write for clients and they pay you $150 - $500 per email
Option #2. You write for yourself and the sky is the limit on what you can earn per email
Let’s discuss option #1 first:
How To Get Paid $150-$500 Per Email
Writing For Clients
FACT: Every single business on planet earth can make money with email.
Local restaurants can send birthday reminders, coupons, newsletters, contests etc.
Manufacturing plants can send high level, professional B2B emails to account executives and secure multi-year, multi-million dollar deals.
Rock musicians can send tour updates, free music, sell swag and tickets, and even use email to book gigs.
Relationship coaches can send value rich emails to their email list and sell information products and their coaching services.
Facebook ad agencies can send emails to potential clients and secure client retainers worth thousands per month.
A pet food store can send emails on dog training tips while ALSO selling hundreds of thousands of pounds of dog food every year.
And on and on and on.
If a business has something to sell, it can be sold via email.
The problem most companies have is that they either:
A. Don’t know how to use email properly
B. Don’t have anyone in their company who can (or even wants to) write emails
Let’s do a little math to point this out:
There are 29.7 million small businesses in the United States alone.
Let’s pretend only 25% of them use email (it’s way more than that but let’s just pretend).
Let’s also pretend that these businesses don’t really know how to use email properly, so they only send two emails per month.
That means, in the United States alone, there is a pressing need for 14,850,000 new emails to be written . . . EVERY. SINGLE. MONTH.
If the average email writer wrote 3 emails per day, every single day of the week, it would take 150,000 copywriters to fulfill on JUST those twice monthly email writing clients . . .
. . . and those are small numbers compared to the reality of the marketplace . . .
Every single one of my email writing clients has me writing 15 – 30 emails per month for them.
Not two per month . . . 15 – 30.
I have email writer friends who have clients asking for 100+ emails per month.
Why would clients want that many emails?
BECAUSE THEY WORK!
Here’s an example of one of my students applying what we teach about emails to one of her clients:
Yes, you read that correctly . . .
. . . she helped to generate more than $100,000 in sales for her client with just the first 3 emails she wrote for them.
Now, you tell me . . .
. . . if you were able to generate $100,000 in sales for a client, how likely would it be that they’d want to order some more of those revenue-producing-emails from you again and again?
This is the beauty of writing emails for client.
Wins are easy and frequent.
The very nature of email writing has a built-in system for getting repeat work over and over again.
With the right training, you can secure fantastic clients who pay monthly retainers to write short little emails as they need them.
With the right training, you can produce emails that get results for clients regardless of niche, industry, or what they are selling.
With the right training, you can help to fill in the massive demand being created right now by all the businesses needing help with email.
But that’s really only the beginning…
How I Earn $1,500/Hour
Writing Emails For Myself
If a sales letter falls in the forest but no one reads it, does it make a sale?
(Spoiler Alert: No, no it doesn’t.)
You’re reading these words right now thanks to a series of emails specifically designed to bring you here.
Thanks to those emails, I can send my audience (you) to a page just like this one to make a purchase of some kind.
Some of you will buy, some of you won’t, but . . .
. . . because I used email, I didn’t have to spend a DIME to get you here.
Very likely, just from the emails I’ve already written and sent, we’ll clear north of $75,000 over the next 7 days or so in sales.
Total investment to get those sales: ZERO.
How’s that for a superpower?
Whether you want to write for clients or you don't, you could use the power of email for yourself to:
Get new clients
Sell information products (Packaged Knowledge)
Get booked to speak/invited to podcasts/get your name out there
Sell coaching or consulting services
Set up referral networks
When you “get” how email works, and you know how to write good ones (quickly), you can make sales every single time you hit “send”.
And it’s not really that hard to be good at email writing . . .
For example, the email sequence I used to bring you here isn’t even all that impressive or complicated.
It’s actually more like a psychological formula, where you just have to know where all the pieces fit and what levers to pull.
The formula is so predictable that I don’t even worry about generating results anymore. I just assemble the pieces and wait for the sales to come in.
And lest you think I slaved over those emails that brought you here . . . I didn’t.
Typically, it only takes me 15 minutes to write an email that sells.
30 minutes if I really get going and want to add a TON of value.
And if you’re like me and hate being sat behind a computer, I typically write my emails while walking in the woods using Dragon Naturally Speaking dictation software.
A little walking, a little talking, a little typing and sales generating email complete . . . next!
Yet another happy client, yet another paid invoice, yet another sale.
If that sounds like a good day at the “office” to you, I can show you how to make it your reality.
I Used Email To Bring You Here. Let Me Teach You To Do The Exact Same Thing For Yourself And/Or For Clients.
Introducing Email Academy:
A Proven Process For Becoming A Well Paid Email Writer
I’ve put together a template-based program focusing on the 5 major email disciplines to help you become a qualified email copywriter as soon as possible.
This is NOT a program where we teach you a bunch of theory about how to write an email pretty enough to get posted on the fridge.

Plus, a whole bunch more!
I have tried to make this the single most comprehensive email copywriting program on the planet for anyone wanting to improve their email skills.
To do that, we’ve supplied templates, training, and more based on my 10+ years as a working copywriter.
Everything you’ll see in this program comes DIRECT from my own daily copywriting business. If I use it, it’s in here.
Nothing is borrowed, nothing is theory, everything works.
Who This is not for
If you’ve been successfully selling with email for more than 5 years, you might pick up a thing or two (and get a hugely positive ROI on the investment) but this probably isn’t the best use of your time.
You’d be better off hiring a personal copywriting coach for $25,000 (like my coach David Garfinkle) and developing your skillset with one-on-one feedback.
If you refuse to see writing as a craft, this probably isn’t for you.
I don’t buy into the elitist approach that writing is only for “Artists”. In my experience it can be learned, improved, and mastered just like any other craft in this world: carpentry, plumbing etc.
I’ve taken that approach as a Freelancer, running No Pants, and especially with my fiction (where I earn 6-figures a year self-publishing). Writing is a craft. Period.
If you can believe that it can be learned, I can help you. If you believe it can’t be learned, I can’t help you.
If you think the only good email is a super short email, this probably isn’t for you.
“Booty call” emails are short.
“Value based” emails are sometimes short, sometimes long, but length isn’t as important as content.
I’ll teach you how to write emails that work if you’re ok with them sometimes being long enough to deliver maximum value to the reader.
If you don’t want to help clients get results, this isn’t for you.
What makes email great is that it gets results FAST for clients. They’ll keep paying you for . . . results.
The more results you get, the more work they give you.
Results, results, results.
It’s all about results.
If you’re one of those unfortunate Freelancers who cares only about getting money without actually getting results for your clients . . . this isn’t for you.
Frankly, the entire No Pants Project probably isn’t for you.
When you have a skill that delivers results for clients, Freelancing is actually pretty easy.
For everyone else, this program can help.

Fast Action Bonus #1 - Live List Building Case Study
A few months ago I recorded myself while I built a brand new list building funnel from scratch.
But there was a catch...
I wanted to build an email list while selling services for $3,000 and $5,000 at a time.
In other words, I wanted to earn money while building the list at the same time.
It took about 6 days to make my first $3,000 sale and since I recorded it all live, a small handful of people have gone on to replicate that same process and build a list of their own.
If you order Email Academy before midnight September 10th, I'll include access to that training for FREE as a Fast Action Taker bonus.
Whether you use the training to build a list for yourself, or you use those skills to build email lists for your clients, having the over the shoulder view of how to get it done will be priceless.

Mike Shreeve and the No Pants Team
Q: "How do I know if I’d be any good at writing emails?"
A: The straight answer: You won't know until you try.
The long answer: Nobody is good at first, but lots of people get better with practice, training, and a desire to get better.
I was terrible at first.
I am NOT a natural born writer.
I had to buy book after book, course after course, and get client after client, before I finally "got it" and started getting repeatable results from my emails.
What I've done with Email Academy is compress and compile that 10 years of figuring out what actually worked and turning all that into templates and training that anyone could use.
With Email Academy you aren't going to need to go buy a bunch more courses on email copywriting, you'll have enough email templates for the 5 major email disciplines that you could get started writing for clients and continue for a few years providing results... just with what is inside of this program.
Q: "Do I have to be a sales expert to write great emails?"
A: No, but you should be interested in how humans work.
I teach a value first approach to email marketing and copywriting which means there's no hard selling here, but... the driving philosophy behind these emails is:
"If you want someone to believe you can help them, help them."
Which translates to:
Figure out what people want.
Show them how to get it.
Tell them you can help them get it faster.
All I need from you is a desire to follow that ^^^ process, and I'll show you how to use my templates to make that happen in real life.
The end result: sales for you and your clients.
Q: "Don’t people hate getting sales emails in their inbox?"
A: Yes, which is why we don't do "booty call" emails.
A value first approach to emails = people are happy to see your name in their inbox.
I first learned this approach from Ryan Lee and have been using it for the past 7 years. If you were to add up all the money I've earned for myself and my clients since starting this method of emailing 7 years ago... it's in the multiple millions.
Turns out, when people enjoy getting your emails... it's MUCH easier to make sales.
Q: "Will you teach me how to get clients?"
A. Of course.
We have a few different methods, one of which is called Empire Building which takes 15 minutes or less per day and has resulted in at least one 6-figure success story that I have tracked since launching this course last September.
Q: "How will I know what kind of emails to write for my clients?"
A. I'll show you how to diagnose the exact problems your prospects have and what email solution is gonna be best for them.
