What I Do
My name is Patricia Ogilvie and I am Copywriter and Best Selling Author of not 1 or 2, but 4 books on Amazon. In case you’ve never heard of me **horrified gasp**, here’s why I’m uniquely & firmly qualified to tell you everything you had ever wanted to know about copywriting.
I have 20 years writing experience, a Masters in Administration, am a Best Selling Author, and I have worked with 100’s of small business owners go from struggling to find the right words, to landing clients who respected them as an authority in their fields – and in as little as 3 months.
I started this business because I was sick & tired of people struggling with copywriting and not finding a solution, and also because I wanted people to know that there is one…their solution, their salvation and their chance to forever say adios to finding time to write even a small book or ebook forever and ever amen.
I also wanted to work for myself and make money because food and bills and life. Well you know about that! Here are a few achievements / conquests / humblebrags I have managed to collect in the few years:
I help women who struggle with asking for what they want and who are feeling afraid that others will negate their desires.
I guide by reading energy and offering skills to achieve a level of self-confidence, a strength in becoming assertive, and erase codependency.
And I write marketing copy and books!
Here’s what some of my favourite clients had to say:
“Thanks for being so great to work with! Even though we have only just met and just started working together, I trust John Robson’s evaluation – I read his testimonial on your site, he has high praises for you!”–Shoi-Yean Mak, Creative Director http://www.emasters.info
“If you want someone who is passionate about her work and is sincerely interested in who you are and your needs, then you have found that person. Patricia prides herself in the power of words and she delivers. It has been a privilege to work with her and I recommend her highly as a writer and copywriter.”–John Robson, www.HigherAwareness.com
Oprah said, “You cannot live a brave life without disappointing some people.”
Frankly, you can’t change how other people feel, ever. You can only change how you feel about yourself, what you do and what you don’t do.
What this also means to me is that if those people who scoff, judge and get disappointed with what you do or don’t do, they don’t have your back in the first place. That’s okay. People who care for you and want to see you excel, will not be disappointed. They are your cheerleaders. They stand by you.
They are your life supporters, even if you don’t need them all the time.
People who are disappointed have their own agenda. Their agenda is not aligned with yours, so it doesn’t matter, does it?
Let’s talk about making your business more profitable. Sure, you could go out and create a new product or come up with an entirely new stream of revenue. But that takes a lot of time and energy. Let’s look at a much easier way to improve you bottom line – using what you’ve already got.
Hire a copywriter (ghost like me) and create your best work yet. Who knows, it could be the next best seller on Amazon. Are you ready?
Start by seeing what you can do to get more of your customers to look at you as the authority in your field. If you’re not ready for a best seller, at least follow this simple advice: add fresh content regularly to your blog or web pages a few times a week. Fresh content will bring fresh visitors to your site and encourage your existing readers to keep coming back.
Make it easy to share your content via social media. Add some Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest buttons to your site along with some attention grabbing images. It’s a good idea to get more active on social media yourself to grow your audience and drive engagement.
And think hard on getting that new book written and published!
This is what I want for you:
- Managing Your Time Effectively
Are you managing your time effectively? As online entrepreneurs we’re bad about falling in the trap of counting every hour at the computer as work time. And sometimes it’s not! Be honest with yourself here for a minute. How much of that time is spent browsing through Facebook, checking the latest Reddit posts or going down the rabbit hole of research? Why don’t you let me help you with that?
We’re all guilty of it but to be more profitable and productive we have to manage our time effectively. While the ideas below will take some getting used to, the end result will be to spend less time at your desk and more time away from your computer doing the things you love to do.
- Make A Plan And Break It Down
Start by figuring out what you want to get accomplished. What ís your next big project and what ongoing tasks need to be taken care of on a daily or weekly basis? Is writing that next book on your radar? If not, the simple solution is to have me write it for you.
If you’re working on a new coaching program, that might involve outlining what you want to teach, writing the training course, editing and formatting, creating worksheets and slides and figuring out how you’ll sell and deliver the program.
In addition you may have daily or weekly tasks like blogging, emailing your subscribers, interacting on social media sites and forums etc.
Figure out what you need to get done over the coming weeks and write it down. Knowing what you should be working on to be more profitable is half the battle. And get help!! Do let’s get to it!
