Freelance Writing Ecourse for Beginners: Contains Everything You Need to Know to Be Successful!

Note: The following e-class is no longer offered. Check out Inkwell Editorial’s SEO copywriting class. It’s where the “action” is in freelance writing these days!

How would you like to earn $100, $150, $200/day or more working from home as a freelance writer? Millions do — and you can too! If you can read and write, and are willing to work hard, you can make a very comfortable living as a home-based writer. Proof? I’ve been doing it full-time since 2007.

(Take control of your financial future; get started TODAY!)

Easy Internet Riches

 If you’re looking for an easy way to make money, this course is not for you. This is a REAL work-from-home opportunity.

You will not make $5,000 in 30 days and you will work more than a few hours per day.

If you can make $100, $150, $200/day or more, why aren’t more doing it? Simply put, because they don’t know how and/or don’t believe it’s possible. Many turn to the internet looking for easy money, which most eventually discover doesn’t exist.

Quite frankly, this career will probably not make you rich. Although there are those who routinely make $100K or more per year.

There’s no “secret to success” and no magic plan that will bring in thousands. It’s just plain and simple hard work, referrals and repeat clients that lead to success. No more, no less.

This course will show you how to get clients and referrals — hence, achieving success.Legitimate Work from Home Job Opportunity

A Way to Have a Life Again

What this career provides is a way to have a life. You get to spend more time with friends and family, more time in the comfort of your home, feel less stressed and gain a sense of satisfaction in your career.

And, it can save you money — on commuting, dry cleaning, daycare expenses, vehicle maintenance, lunch, etc. All of these are expenses associated with working away from home.

Imagine how different your days would be if you could work from home? No fighting rush hour traffic, rushing to drop the kids off at daycare, squeezing everything in on the weekends (eg, household chores; grocery shopping; errands; preparing clothes, lunches and synchronizing schedules for the upcoming work week; etc.).

By the time you do all of this, Monday is here again and you don’t feel like you ever have time to really just enjoy life because your job dominates even your time off.

It simply doesn’t have to be this way.

Make $30,000 to $50,000/Year Pretty Seamlessly as a Freelance Writer

The demand is such that if you’re willing to put in the work, you can make a great living comparable to most jobs that pay $30,000, $40,000 or $50,000/year. If you put in the work, you will reap the rewards — guaranteed!

Replace Your Current Job — Make a Full- or Part-time Living as a Freelancer

There are experienced freelance writers, editors, copywriters and copy editors who make $100,000 or more per year — every year. You have to build up to this, but if you’re the average Joe pulling in $30-$50K, this is a career that can easily replace your current job.

Freelance Writing: A Career for the “Every Day” Person

Age is not a barrier, income is not a barrier and education is not a barrier. If you can read and write, you can start this career.

The best thing about it — it’s a career you can have for years to come. A computer and a willingness to learn basic marketing is about all you need to succeed. With no physical limitations, you don’t have to “retire” if you don’t want to.

The best part of this career? The longer you’re in it, the more clients you get, the busier you become and the more money you make.

You can start slow with no risk because there’s no office space to rent, equipment to buy or certifications to get. You simply decide — and you’re in business.

Work from Anywhere

With a little guidance, which this freelance writing e-course provides in painstaking detail, you’ll be well on you way to building a career that you can do from anywhere (click photo below for larger view of one of my favorite places to work in Jamaica).

Living abroad as a freelance writerThe beauty of working as a freelance writer, editor and/or copy editor is that almost all of your work is done remotely — via email and/or fax.

Work from the Beach in Jamaica (or Wherever Your Heart Desires)

In the spring of 2010, I fulfilled one of my lifelong dreams — to live abroad. I moved to Negril, Jamaica for what was supposed to be one year. Then, for a couple of years, I made a transitory lifestyle out of it — living part-time in the states (I’m American) and part-time in Negril.

In the summer of 2014, I made the move permanent (as least for the next few years).

In June of 2014, I registered my business in Jamaica (Inkwell Editorial is now an international company!) so that I can live and work here full-time. I feel semi-retired as I open up my door every morning to the 270-degree view of the ocean I have from the balcony of my apartment. It’s a nice life — one you can also have because with a laptop, you can literally turn in projects from around the world!

About This Freelance Writing Class

I hate to even describe this as a class, an e-course, etc., because it is so much more. This is a “hands-on, taught from almost two decades of experience, with a detailed, samples-provided-every-step-of-the-way, map to success!

What’s included in this five part e-course? What will you learn?

You get:

Personal feedback on your marketing plan (this will make or break your success as a freelancer)

Sample sales letters

Sample calling scripts

The benefit of my experience as an employer and employee in the editorial industry (having been on both sides of the desk, I give insight into what you should and should not be doing to increase your chances of landing a client)

First-hand information on which low and no-cost marketing methods to use (I’ve tried them all; I’ll tell you where to concentrate your efforts for the most effective use of your time and dollars)

A marketing calendar (you’ll know EXACTLY what you should be doing every week to steadily bring in clients)

Tips on on- and offline tools you should use on a regular basis to bring in consistent business

Suggestions on how to choose a niche market that’s right for you

Advice on how to market to your chosen niche market (templates of marketing materials will be included so that all you will have to do is plug in your business name and contact information)

Formulas for figuring out a profitable pricing schedule

Limited time? This course will show you how to work a limited number of hours, but still attain your financial goals

Ideas on how to make money from more than just your primary skill

Knowledge to get repeat clients who will use your services for years to come

Instruction on how to set up an automatic referral system so that you can count on repeat business

Mental tips and tricks – 90% of every obstacle is mental. If you can master this hurdle, you can get through anything. The work (10%) is easy. Getting over the mentality of “I can’t/this is hard/I’m giving up, etc.” is what keeps most of us from achieving goals.

I will share with you some techniques that I use on a regular basis to help break the ever-recurring “I can’t” mindset. How do I know they work?

On Thanksgiving Day 2006, I ran my first marathon after having been a runner for over 20 years, never passing the 12-mile mark. When I first set a marathon as my goal, I was scared to death that I would never be able to run that far (26.2 miles).

Hard work (the easy part) and mental toughness is what got me through. And, you know what? It was easier (I didn’t say easy, I said easier) than I ever imagined it would be. Not only did I finish, but I ran the whole thing and did it in 20 minutes less than my target time! And, as of December 2013, I’ve completed 10 marathons (2 full and 8 half)!

Trust me, developing mental toughness is as vital to your freelance success as your writing skill.

Much more — which is impossible to detail here.

What Makes This Freelance Writing E-Course Different from Others

Personal Experience: This course is based on my personal success. Some jobs I got in what might be called a normal fashion; most I did not.

While there are many online writing courses you could take, there are two things you should always look for — a) honesty/trustworthiness/integrity; and b) experience from the person giving the course.

handshakeIntegrity: If you’re a regular reader at InkwellEditorial.com, you know that I tend to be pretty straightforward.

Via my directness, I trust that a sense of honesty (hence, trustworthiness comes through). I relay personal scenarios so that you can learn first-hand what to do, and perhaps more importantly, what NOT to do.

As a matter of fact, before you sign up, I implore you to spend some time going through the site to get a feel for what I’m like and more vitally, what my experience is. Speaking of experience . . .

Professional Background: I’ve been around a while and am not going anywhere. I’ve been in publishing since 1987, started freelancing in 1993 and ran an editorial staffing agency in New York from 1996-2004.

I’ve been on both sides of the hiring desk in the editorial industry — so I know what employers are thinking, looking for and what is more likely to get you hired.

There are just certain mistakes that you’re going to make unless and/or until someone tells you why AND how to avoid them. Being a business owner (I’ve owned several) added so much more to my freelancing than being a publishing professional. In this course, you’ll capitalize on this knowledge.

technologyThe Technology Factor: My company has been in business since 1996; and its website has been around since 1999 (for better or worse!). Although I freely admit that I am not the most technologically savvy person around, I do keep abreast enough to be able to market effectively.

The reason this is important is because most, if not all, of your work will be done remotely. You must, must, must be able to navigate the online world to effective as a freelance writer.

The most important reason being a little tech savvy is important — marketing to clients. How can you effectively pitch a client on using you to write their web copy when you don’t know how to write your own?

Freelance writers, editors, copy editors and copywriters must be more than proficient wordsmiths; they must be effective on- and offline marketers. Not only for themselves, but to be able to educate clients (which makes a difference in how much clients are willing to pay you).

Proactivity: This course is for those who want to make a sustainable living from freelancing. To that end, it is PROACTIVE. Many courses are reactive, eg, query and wait. This course sets a plan for you to follow day in and day out — you’re actively marketing all the time.

Target Market: I target the business community — not magazines (where you have to query and wait for months to get paid); freelance job sites (where the competition is so stiff and the pay so low that it’s not an effective use of your time); or tell you to subscribe to popular writing e-zines, magazines, etc. to get jobs.

Location: Whether you live in a small town, or a cosmopolitan city, it won’t matter. You can take the skills you acquire in this course and apply them from anywhere.

Work: If you’re not prepared to do the work (which is not hard, but is in-depth), then this course is not for you. Freelance writing is hard work — and I don’t mean work on projects. I mean work to bring in the projects (eg, marketing). But, once you know how to do this — it makes getting jobs so much easier.

Personal Consultation: I will personally review each participant’s marketing plan and give advice/feedback.

Psychographics: This is simply how people think; what makes them tick. One thing being an entrepreneur has taught me is that people buy based on feeling, not price or experience or education. I will explain why this is important and how you can use it to land more writing jobs.

If you’re really serious about finally making it as a freelance writer, you won’t find a better course than this. I just can’t say it more succinctly.

I hope to see you enrolled and wish you a prosperous freelance career!

To your freelance success!
