FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1. If I want to learn about how to be a freelance writer, which should I order — the freelance writing ecourse (IW-10), or the SEO writing ebook (IW-11)? Which product to order all depends on where you are as a freelance writer.
What I mean by this is, if you have little or no experience and want to learn about freelance writing in general and/or what it takes to succeed and how to formulate a concrete plan to get started, then the freelance writing e-course is best. Basically, the e-course teaches everything you need to know about starting or growing any kind of freelance writing business.
If you want to learn how to start an SEO writing business, then the SEO writing ebook is the right choice. The SEO writing ebook only discusses SEO writing and how to market for this kind of work.
2. Which SEO copywriting ebook should I order — How to Write SEO Copy That Sells (NMW-1) or How to Make $250+/Day Writing Simple, 500-Word Articles (IW-11)?
The difference between these two ebooks is the marketing portion. How to Write SEO Copy That Sells (NMW-1) has no marketing information in it, because it’s targeted to small business owners who want to learn how to (or train others to) write SEO content.
How to Make $250+/Day Writing Simple, 500-Word Articles (IW-11) is for freelance writers and aspiring freelance writers who want to know how to write — and market for — SEO writing jobs.
How to Write SEO Copy That Sells (NMW-1) goes into much greater detail about how to write SEO content because it is a training manual, after all.However, this is covered in How to Make $250+/Day Writing Simple, 500-Word Articles (IW-11), just not in such comprehensive detail (if you’re a quick study, you don’t need How to Write SEO Copy That Sells (NMW-1).
The info in How to Make $250+/Day Writing Simple, 500-Word Articles (IW-11) is more than sufficient for you to learn how to write SEO content.
3. If I order both How to Make $250+/Day Writing Simple, 500-Word Articles (IW-11) and How to Write SEO Copy That Sells (NMW-1), will the info be redundant?
No, because one is more comprehensive on how to write SEO content than the other and one doesn’t have any marketing info at all.
4. How do you charge for updated versions of a book?
If you purchased an ebook that has an updated version, you can receive a copy of the most recent version for just 10% of the current price. To get your copy, send payment to payment@InkwellEditorial.com (Inkwell Editorial’s PayPal address).
Email a copy of your PayPal receipt to payment@InkwellEditorial.com, letting me know (i) your name; and (ii) and which ebook you want an updated version of. Payments without accompanying PayPal receipt(s) as proof of previous purchase will not be honored. The ebook(s) will be emailed to the address associated with your PayPal account.
5. What is your refund policy?
Because you’re buying an e-product (that can’t be “returned” once downloaded and read), there are no refunds. That’s why I provide very detailed information on all of Inkwell Editorial’s e-products. And, the site is full of information on almost everything we publish/create. So dig through it and do some reading and if you have questions, feel free to email me before ordering. I’ll be happy to answer.
I hope this info helps, and good luck with your freelance writing, ebook publishing and/or internet marketing career.
