But before we go into the topic, i just want to tell you my personal story. I come from a country where income is much lower than that compared to the us, and when i tried to grow my business internationally out of russia, i realized that i wont be able to write all the texts in english, but it was really really hard for Me to find a good writer who both spoke russian charged russian money and also knew good english, so wouldnt be embarrassed in front of my international customers. At some stage i decided to go and try and find a native speaker, but it turns out that native speakers charge a lot. There was a guy who i told you know i need to create this funnel of emails. I want you to write a couple of emails: um, maybe like 100 200 words like really really small emails and he was like one email would cost 250, like 100 words. I couldnt afford that. So i wrote all the emails myself, but you should know that great writers who are native speakers charge a lot of money and its really hard to find them with this video. I want to inspire you to start writing in english, because i dont necessarily want everyone to watch this video to become a writer in english, and it is a hard task to do.

I want to state uh three or four tips, and every tip would be a paragraph and i state those tips and in the end i want to share some useful tips on where to find an employer or a guy. Who would give you some tasks. So this is an outline. It really helps with a smoother text. Second, tip know your target audience. You should speak their language and ideally, ideally you understand the problem.

Definitely there for you academy.cat.online. The link is down below the next tip and i kind of mentioned it before, but i know its kind of hard understand what youre writing about, because sometimes when you take a lot of tasks and somebody would ask you to write about crypto, another person would ask You to write about influencers. Another person would be like oh write about newer biology. Ideally, you would specify the topics that youre super passionate about, because, yes, you would be targeting a smaller chunk of customers, but you would provide a lot more value for them. So, ideally, i would sit down with myself. If i were you – and i would tell myself, okay, im super passionate about creating videos, im super passionate about english language and im super passionate about traveling. So these would be the customers im gon na, be targeting offering my services to write a copy or to write a text. Keep it simple. I know. Sometimes you want to make your text look amazing and use all of the advanced words, but this is a great tip if youre writing an academic essay or youre trying to impress your professor or youre taking toefl, because toefl annihiles those exams they want to check your Advanced english, when youre writing a text for a person native speaker or someone whos, just interested in the topic you dont have to have sentences that are five lines. Ten lines long you dont have to over complicate your language, because the main purpose of creating a text is to deliver a thought, and if you over complicate it, it might be too hard to deliver a thought.
The next tip dont overuse the verb to be lets. Look at two sentences: he is handsome. He is an engineer devoted to his work doesnt the sentence sound as if it was written by a child or a robot lets look at another one. The handsome engineer devotes himself to his work. You see in the second sentence. We just replace the verb to be avoid it. If you can keep it positive, give people some hope, because this is what keeps people going compare uh two instances i could have named this video. Only 0.01 percent of you guys are watching this. Video are going to get a job, uh writing online, and i know its true. It doesnt mean that every video you watch, you apply everything and you necessarily become a person that is talked about in this video. But i can just say you can make up to this amount of money by writing online because you can, if you really want to so keep it positive start with the main idea. If you look at some – and i always like to look at instagram, because instagram is one of the platforms where people write a short copy and you only see the first line of that copy and it has to be captivating so start with the main idea. This guy made five hundred thousand dollars by producing videos on youtube, or i havent eaten sugar for 30 years years for 30 days, and this is what happened like start with the main idea captivate the attention, because if you go like graham started making videos in 2014, He has been making videos on youtube every single day, blah blah blah blah, and then you kind of come to the point, how much money he makes – and this is the main idea start with it – learn how to organize a paragraph.
First, there is a rule that every paragraph every thought should be kind of the same in terms of the amount of words that youre using, but also learn how to structure it. You start with a thought, then you have some supportive ideas and then you finish with a conclusion – and this applies to both texts – that youre going to write for people who are going to hire you to write text for them, and this applies to exams that youre Going to take and all the essays that youre going to write for universities now, the next step would be a little controversial, because if you are watching this video in order to learn how to write in english in general, then you need to know that if youre Writing an essay if youre taking an exam in english people who are going to check your text theyre, going to look for connecting words. However, in order to first of all second of all, moreover, nowadays etc. But if youre writing a copy to convince someone to buy something, if youre writing an email, its better to keep it shorter, so dont say in order to say to the short it is the better it is, but this rule doesnt apply to essays because again there Are different things that people are looking at dont use very and really ive told you that so many times very tasty, delicious, very beautiful stunning. Just by replacing very plus adjective by a stronger adjective, you make your text more convincing and you make it more beautiful.
So get rid of very and really yes, you can use them, but try to avoid them and replace them by something else. How about a small homework write a two sentence text like a very short text: whos your favorite youtuber, and why this way youre gon na practice. Your writing remember all the tips that we talked about, like avoiding the word to be avoiding very avoiding really, and this way i would also go through comments, and i will see who else youre watching here on youtube and ill, be able to create more useful content For you, and maybe other people who are also watching this video uh, would go to comments down below and actually find new amazing channels, so im looking forward to reading your comments about your favorite youtuber use data. This is my next tip and this tip its one of my favorite. I love to use numbers. I love to use some stats and people like stats and people like numbers if theyre not too many, i talked to my youtube manager and she said that numbers in titles actually attract viewers. Attention and people are more likely to click on it. Thats. Why? I make a lot of videos like 50 common phrases in english and again im talking about videos, because this is where i specialize, but those tips apply to every single piece of content. You create online, so always use numbers. If you can again when were talking about how much money someone can make then put a number there if were talking about phrases that youre gon na learn after reading, this text, then put the amount of phrases that youre giving like a hundred most useful phrases in English five quick tips to improve your written english numbers and data are super important if you can share something like sixty percent of people who took this class, uh became advanced english in three years.
Whatever then use that data imitate. Oh this. This applies again to everything. Subscribe to a couple of people who write texts ideally sub stack, substack is one of my favorite apps out there. I have an email on substance. The link will be down below if you want to subscribe. I write about creator economy, but there is so many people who write on substance and there are just ordinary people, and you find the topic that youre most interested in you follow those people, or maybe you find someone who writes in a way that you really really Like and you learn from them, you read and read and read, and then the more you read the better you become at writing copy some words copy some expressions copy the way people write the next step. Dont depend on autocorrect. Ai artificial intelligence is great, but i still think were not there. This is why i use fluent.express. Whenever i write a text online, because texts are checked by native speakers there, the link will be down below. We created this app, my team and i, but i dont well autocorrect – is great when you misspell the word, but its not great when youre, not an english native speaker and you just you kind of speak in a weird way like autocorrect would not understand it. So if you are worried about the quality, then use someone whos a native speaker or if you cant, invest in that then do something else write a text.
Do something else grab a cup of tea watch a movie or whatever, and then go back to the text and re, read it and prove yourself by the way. Reading your text aloud also really helps its just the different way youre reading the text, and it will be easier for you to spot your mistakes. Another tip that i was given when i was preparing for my gmat is to read the text from the ending to the beginning. So you start with the last sentence and then you go on top to the first sentence again in this way. Youre assessing the text in different way and your mistakes would be more visible to you and two more tips. Practice makes perfect. The more you write, the better you become and done is better than perfect dont work on your text too much publish it. Go ahead. Make mistakes 20 times, but your 21st attempt would be a lot better, so always always do instead of hiding and trying to be perfect and now, as promised, im gon na share some platforms that i personally use to find copywriters writers and researchers, and i just wanted To be clear here, there are three different types of text that you can write. So copywriter is someone who doesnt, i think so. This is my personal opinion. It doesnt really dig deep into the topic. For example, if you need a text for your website just for seo, or you just need a text based on a video, this could be a copywriter.
So someone who already has some information and doesnt need to go deep writer is someone who doesnt have this information, and a writer would be someone who would write a marketing email for me and the task that i would give him would be like. Oh, i want to have a marketing email talking about top 10 productivity tips for youtubers. Can you make it? Can you write it? This is a writer, so hes going to do his research himself and hes going to write that email and a researcher is someone who would provide information for me, and i would make a text. This is very similar. I would tell them like. Okay, i want to make this video about top 50 common phrases in english. Can you please create a text, create a script for me and i dont really care if its a beautifully written script, because i only care about the information and i would be looking at a quality of those phrases that the researcher found for me. So three different categories and you need to be honest with yourself which category you are best in and then you go to upwork upwork is my favorite. This is what i use all the time my company uses it all the time and you list yourself. Ideally, you fulfill some tasks for free to get reviews, but there are hundreds of videos on youtube on how to succeed on upwork. The next platform is fiverr.
I dont use it as much, but i think they tend to have cheaper labor because fiverr they originally started. As a five bucks per task but check them out as well, there is a specific platform for writers called iwriter, and the rates range from three dollars to two hundred dollars check it out as well. Theres the platform called constant content and i like it because well you have to be a top writer, but also you can either sell a text. So, as a buyer, i can go to that platform and look for texts about english. Look for text about youtube and i can actually buy them from other writers, or you can also look for projects and fulfill them so its both for text that are already there already written and for new text as well. But you have to be a top writer and of course there are other freelance platforms like freelancer craigslist, like all the platforms that you can think of, but its really important that you stick to one platform that this is just my opinion. Uh, because you can work on reviews, you can work on your rating and then this way, youre gon na be ranking higher up and also be proactive. Reach out to people do things cheaper than the market. Write yourself have an instagram, have a written blog, have a sub stack. Make yourself stand out. This is the way it works, but again you have to be really passionate about what youre doing you have to be really passionate about writing and this video doesnt guarantee that everyone who watches it becomes a top writer.
Its just another way to inspire you to do things in english and i hope it was useful for you im really looking forward to reading your comments and uh yeah im gon na uh.
