Hey hey hey
It’s Francis here.
Get ready for this one...
In front of you is the Monday Business edition of The Nomad Newsletter
Today is all about sharing business ideas, tips, and resources to help you earn an income while working & traveling the world. Usually, I send you a bunch of links on a variety of topics, but today I’m doing something different.
I’m gonna zero in on ONE specific job/skill I think you’ll love.
Why will you love it?
Well, because it’s what I do
, and I LOVE IT SO MUCH. It’s literally changed my life
. And if you keep reading today’s newsletter, then I’ll share why you’ll feel the same and how you can begin your journey, too — even if you have ZERO experience.
I mean that. I’ve personally known non-native English speakers and people who consider themselves horrible writers pick up this skill and earn an extra $1k - $5k/month within just a few weeks and months. (results vary, let’s be real)
So, what is this mystery skill I and so many others do that fuels our nomadic adventures?
Well, it’s none other than email copywriting.
In today’s Monday Business Edition, I’ll breakdown:

Enough small talk.
Let’s dive right in.
What The Heck Is Email Copywriting??
I think I answer this question in real-life, probably 5x a week.
Straight up: Email copywriting is the skill of writing persuasive content to sell a product or service via email. **Check out my interview w/ The World Wanderers about the basics of starting your freelance email copywriting business**
Email copy is what you read when you opt-in to get a freebie and get a sequence of emails usually sharing info about the company…
...and eventually selling you to buy a product, join a training, or wherever the call-to-action may be.
(hell, what you’re reading RIGHT NOW is email copy — and I’m just writing what’s on the top of my head)
Look at your inbox — you see those thousands of emails?
People, like me, had to write those.
We are email copywriters.
You should be one, too.
Why Is It The Perfect Nomadic Job/Freelance Business?
When I say freelance email copywriting is a gold mine for freelancers and aspiring digital nomads, I really mean it
Let’s look at the facts, shall we?
● First, there’s massive opportunities — Did you actually think email is dead? Hell nah. Email is BACK, baby. Businesses in EVERY NICHE are using email marketing to grow.
From e-commerce, coaching, dentists, dating, roofing, survival, parenting, traveling, real estate, and literally everyone in between are email to get more close more sales. (hell, even Donald Trump & Joe Biden went HEAVY with email to fund their campaigns)
