How Jawad Khan Went from $30 Per Article to $10,000 Per Month

Note from Bamidele:  I was chatting with Jawad Khan on Skype the other day, and in the midst of our discussion he sent me the following message:  “Great… I still smile, when I see the first ever email I sent you when I was just starting  out… your blog helped me a lot… I’ve been making good money for the last 2-3 years now… you helped me start so I’ll always remember that :)”

Upon reading Jawad’s message, I was filled with two emotions: happiness and curiosity. I was happy for Jawad — because of what he was able to achieve, especially as a non-native English writer. Naturally, I prodded him for more information and here are some highlights since Jawad became a freelance writer.

In his own words:

  1. “I paid off $30,000 in debt.”
  2. “I bought a brand new car.”
  3. “I completely renovated my house (big expense).”
  4. “I got married :D”
  5. “And above all, getting clients is not a problem anymore.”

Jawad typically makes $5,000 – $7,000 monthly from freelance writing, but he’s had a few $10,000 months.

Now, if that isn’t success, what is? I mean, if building a house, buying a car, paying off a significant debt, and getting married thanks to earnings from freelance writing isn’t success, what is?

How Francesca Nicasio Went from 0 to $400 per Article

francesca nicasio

Francesca has always loved writing. So when she graduated from college in 2009 she knew that she wanted to write for a living. She moved to LA and applied to all the movie studios in the hope of landing a job as a screenwriter only to realize that no one wanted to hire a recent college grad with no previous work experience.

However, Francesca didn’t give up, and today she is an established writer who makes a living doing what she loves.

How did she go from being unable to get paid for writing to charging $300 to $400 per article?

Note from Bamidele: I discovered Jorden Roper a while back when I came across one of her income reports. I went through her site and couldn’t resist reading some of her insanely-practical and highly-informative articles, such as “How I built a $5,000/mo Freelance Writing Business in 4 Months (Month-by-Month Breakdown!).” I was impressed, and I immediately decided that this is someone I had to feature on Writers in Charge.

Jorden has a lot of great content on her site, and I’ve had people rave about her paid products in communities I oversee. Needless to say, this is someone you SHOULD follow! Check out our case study on her below!

How Chintan Zalani Built a Successful Writing Business

chintan

India is one of the countries to which you can outsource anything and get talented people working for you at a fraction of what you’d pay to someone in a developed country.

While a lot of people accept these low rates, Chintan Zalani wasn’t satisfied with being paid peanuts. He made the decision to go after high paying clients instead. Today, he only works with people who appreciate the value he provides and compensate him well for it.

So how did he go from being an engineering student who dabbled in writing to an established writer who makes a great living from his writing business?
