Errr nope to your first question. Yes, I do have a comprehensive list including many of the worlds top copywriters (many of us know each other personally) but there is no good beneficial reason why any copywriter such as myself would outsource this all important task.
You see, if I am to uncover the benefits of any one particular product (goods or services included) then before I even commit pen to paper, I want to understand personally this business model inside out
This prerequisite, this research stage is incredibly important to me, indeed it is the very foundation
upon which their (my clients) copy will be written. Outsourcing this would not
be in my personal interest or the interest of my client at all
How on earth would you
even know (the research outsourcer) in advance what questions to ask of my client, which knowledge and answers in my own mind I needed to know whilst exploring any one particular route to market?
Further, not just coming up with these very specific unordered questions, how would you know how and when to ask these questions
without understanding inside out my own
Your business idea is flawed inside out for these reasons. It's a non goer. Forget it. The market you're interested in helping (for monetary compensation) all pro copywriters carry out this all important part of the process themselves.
It's part and parcel of what we do in order to position and brand our clients good, products, and services to best effect.
