We’re talking about how to write effective follow up emails that turn subscribers into customers on today’s Fast Action Fridays.
My guest is Charlene Burke, a research and copywriting expert. In the past, she often most identified with her high-level research and professional facilitation skills. Over time the corporate business climate changed, as did her preference for the type of work she preferred pursuing.
She recently choose to pivot her strategies yet again to better align her solopreneur business with the copywriting formats she most enjoyed doing. The result was a growing revenue stream plus less stress and struggle.
In today’s interview, Charlene provides insight into her journey, along with valuable email copywriting tips that you can implement to help turn more of your own email subscribers into paying customers and clients.

More about Charlene
She’s is founder of Search by Burke and calls herself an Information Professional. She offers research, writing, and professional facilitation services. Since 2008, she has been working with small business owners, organizational development leaders, online business owners, trainers and consultants to find, and make sense of, the data and information they need to create products, attract their ideal customer, and ensure their students and clients implement what they have learned.
She’s a writer. Often her clients don’t have the time to write content, or quite frankly, don’t write well, so she will write content from the research she’s done. It’s often in the form of articles, eBooks, small reports, buyers guides, and blog posts. Her clients have used this content as lead magnets, give aways, in annual reports, in State of the Industry presentations, and on their website.
She’s a productivity and accountability expert. Because she is really good at helping people “Get Things Done,” and stay on track with what’s important, she has created a Get It Done program specifically for the individual who is practicing their procrastination skills.
She has a background in marketing and engineering, is serious about business and working with clients, and thinks life is better when injected with humor throughout the day.
