…but when I made $2,850 in my first month.
I remember the day vividly.
I was out with some friends at a boba tea place.
Conversations were flowing.
Then, the good old I hate my job conversation came up.
To which, I replied (shockingly):
“Hey, I hate my job too!”
“In fact, I’m thinking about quitting to start freelancing online.”
Even a bit of laughter, as if I was joking.
I’m hard headed, though, so I gave it a shot.
It just so happened to work out.
Because, well… this is past tense, and you’re about to learn about how I made it happen.
This letter to you is all about how I made the transition from essentially nothing, to making $2850 in my first month.
Oh, and by the way, I’m Colton Randolph.
The hard headed (past and present) freelance copywriter (present).
So sit down, and buckle in, my fellow freelancer (or soon to be freelancer).
You’re in for a valuable ride.
First, let’s get something out of the way.
I’m a freelancer copywriter.
But that doesn’t matter to you.
This doesn’t just apply to copywriters.
This applies to anyone with a skill or service.
It doesn’t matter if you’re:
- A copywriter.
- A graphic designer.
- A web developer.
- An animator.
- An email marketer.
- A content writer.
- A virtual assistant.
- A data scraper.
- An accountant.
- A PR person.
- A UI or UX designer.
- A programmer.
- A legal consultant.
- And beyond.
As long as you have a skill or a service, this applies to you.
You don’t even need a portfolio.
You could be a complete beginner and it’ll still work for you.
Without further a due, let’s dive in:
So it begins…
I hit the ground running.
I tried this “gig posting site”, and I received messages from incredibly low quality prospects.
I managed to make $250 (which I’m not even counting towards that $2850).
That was quite truly painful.
Underpriced, answering countless messages from people who didn’t even order.
I could tell it wasn’t going to work.
So, then I thought of running ads.
I had experience running ads in the past.
(At one point, I ran a small software company I used to run ads for.)
But there’s a problem with that:
You have to sift through thousands of full people to find one hungry person.
Instead, you want to directly find a hungry crowd.
It’s much, much easier selling to a hungry crowd.
Someone who has a need for what you’re selling.
I discovered upon a gem that just so happened to have that hungry crowd.
And I started pitching my services.
Wanna guess what happened?
I worked on my pitch again, bit by bit.
Making it personable.
Making it seem like I wasn’t just sending out mass cold pitches.
Started getting a bit of a response here and there, but no bites.
So I went back and looked at the job post I had posted for the software company I used to run.
All of the pitches that kept my attention all shared a common theme.
I made a pitching template.
I call it:
Using A.I.V.Q. I started sending out some more pitches.
Guess what happened?
I landed my first gig!
It wasn’t much, but it was enough to motivate me.
So I get that job done, and keep pitching.
I immediately land another one, for a software company.
I get the job done, submit it.
He loves it so much he decides to hire me on for another.
Okay, things are really rolling now.
I realize by this point A.V.I.Q. works like crazy and decide to go for another client right away.
I send a pitch for the biggest client yet:
We schedule a call.
And at the end of that call?
Well, I’ll be damned…
Another $1,500 closed.
That brings the total to $2850 made in my first month.
- Finding a hungry crowd.
- Using a simple pitching technique I named A.I.V.Q.
And I didn’t have to spend a single dollar on advertising.
Who’s laughing now?
I’m sippin’ on my boba tea and living life on my terms.
Throughout this process…
I came to a realization:
All freelancers have 3 fundamental problems.
I mean, literally, every single one of them.
They’re scared of rejection.
People experience traumatic experiences throughout life.
You can’t tell me in school at some point you weren’t rejected.
It could have been in dodgeball.
It could have been from that one girl/guy you like.
But it’s happened.
We carry those experiences with us.
And it affects us throughout life.
People, in particular, freelancers are simply afraid of rejection.
“If I don’t try, I can’t be rejected.”
So they stay stuck.
You’re going to get rejected.
It’s a fact of life.
Not everyone is going to like you.
Not everyone is an ideal client.
But you’ll also be accepted and appreciated.
You’ve gotta have confidence in yourself.
Which leads me to the second issue freelancers have:
They think they need a better portfolio.
What job have you ever had that expects you to be 100% ready the first day?
None of them.
A portfolio is like a bachelors degree.
A way to get your foot in the door.
It should have just enough.
A lot of times, people use a portfolio as a way to procrastinate.
They’re afraid of rejection.
They’re afraid of getting in the trenches.
They think they’re not good enough.
So procrastinating is just an easy way out, rather than actually getting in the trenches.
Now for the third and final biggest issue:
They simply don’t know how to pitch.
The root problem is they’re pitching to people who don’t need their service (not a hungry crowd).
They send out mass pitches.
Sounding like a robot.
Pitching has gotten a bad rep from people who simply don’t know how to do it.
When someone reads your pitch they should think:
“Hmm, this guy resonates with me and sounds like they know what they’re talking about, I should give him a try.”
“This guy is super f*cking annoying. Blocked.”
You can’t send a blanket pitch out that appeals to everyone.
When you try to appeal to everyone, you appeal to no one.
Speak specifically, personably, like you’re sitting across the table from them.
That’s what A.I.V.Q. does, but even further.
Once you solve these 3 fundamental issues, getting things rolling is a piece of cake.
Good news for you:
I wrote a book that solves all of these issues for you.
Teaching you a radically different and new way to start (and grow) a freelancing career.
It gives you the answers you desperately need to know.
Sometimes, giving you the answers to your questions before you even know you have them.
“Okay, I used A.I.V.Q. and got a response to my pitch, what do I do now?”
“I landed my first client, how do I increase the lifetime value of the client?”
And so on.
It takes things much further than just the 3 fundamental issues above.
If you want to start, or accelerate the growth of your freelancing career, you’ll want to grab a copy.

That’s just some of what you’ll learn.
The book is a short read, 73 pages, designed to be read in one sitting.
But it’s incredibly meaty with actionable advice.
This isn’t a fiction book, after all.
It’ll teach you how to go from zero clients, working at a job you hate, to having the freedom freelancing creates.
It’ll change your pitch responses from:
“What’s your rates?”
I mean, seriously…
Imagine if you could land just one big client.
Let’s say a $1,500 client like I closed.
(Which isn’t really that big of a client, by the way.)
That’s enough money for the majority of people to pay necessary bills.
Now imagine if you could land 4 of them a month.
Above the medium salary in the United States.
All by pitching using a unique new method (A.I.V.Q.) to a hungry crowd.
It’s extremely possible.
By now you might be saying:
“Okay, this all sounds good, but what’s the price?”
Here’s the deal:
This book is going to sell for $47.
- This is the first edition.
- I want to get it into as many hands as possible.
So, today, I’m going to slash that price.
I was going to sell it for $27.
During the time I was writing this letter to you, though, I got hungry.
So, I took a trip to McDonalds.
Got a Big Mac meal.
The total for it came out to $7.70.
I realized, I wanted this to be more affordable than a Big Mac.
Because who can’t afford a Big Mac?
So instead of
Today you can get it for a whopping $6.97.
(Yes, that was a play on Burger King, by the way.)
Less than the price of a Big Mac combo from McDonalds.
Just to settle your nerves, too…
You’re covered by my 30-day refund guarantee.
Even if it’s 29-days and 23 hours later.
To be fair to McDonald’s, it’d be pretty nasty if you tried to take a burger back 29 days and 23 hours later.
Though, I think those things have enough preservatives in them to survive a nuclear apocalypse.
If for any reason you don’t love Freelancer Freedom, you’ll get all of your money back.
If you don’t see results, I insist you don’t pay me a dime.
I’ll even let you keep the book for good measure and wasting your time.
Oh, and in case you’re wondering…
“Where’s the catch?”
There’s no catch.
My sinister plan is to actually help you start or improve your freelancing career so you hire me for consulting later.
In other words:
My goal is to make you a lot of money, so you can pay me a small percentage of it later to help you make even more money.

But, I should mention one thing…
This offer is extremely limited in quantity.
While I want to get this out to as many people as possible, it’s not feasible to sell it for $6.97 for very long.
