Direct Response Jobs “Premium” Resume

Along with getting access to DirectResponseJobs.com and searching the ads posted by marketers looking to hire new writers, your PWA membership now allows you to post your own page that promotes your writing services. It's just like having your own "mini website" directly on our job board, so marketers who want to search for the perfect writer can find and contact you directly.

On DirectResponseJobs.com, click on the button: Access Your DRJ Premium Resume.

Customize This: Copy Project Contract

Use this as a template for your own contracts with clients. Generously shared with us by Bob Bly, his "boiler plate" contract format is easy to use, well appointed and professional … but simple and plain enough to not sound like a bunch of legal mumbo-jumbo.
