Why did we create this guide?
If you’ve been researching this whole freelancing thing for any amount of time then you surely know that there are hundreds, if not thousands of blog posts talking about freelance writing this or freelance writing that. But at the same time, there’s but one complete (or close to complete) resource on freelance writing as a real career opportunity. Most people in this space are really left alone on their journey and forced to figure things out themselves.
This is the situation we were in a couple of years ago. And yes, various articles around the web do help, but there’s always this one question in the back of your head whenever you encounter an interesting method or technique: “Should I really be doing this right now or maybe some other thing would be more effective?”
This is exactly why we’ve decided to create this guide, to help everyone solve this mystery. And we really devoted time to making it the ultimate guide on getting freelance writing jobs, not just a bunch of ideas cramped together on a couple of blog pages.
Is this for you?
This is where I should probably give you a nice marketing pitch like: “Have you ever wondered why some people are able to build great careers as freelance writers while others fail to make more than $5 per article?” or “Do you want to leave your crappy job behind for the freelance writing dream?”
But since we’re not after selling a dream here, I’m just going to be plain instead. This guide is for:
- Everyone who wants to start a freelance writing career and learn how to exchange their skills and time for real money effectively,
- Everyone who wants a structured step-by-step and tested advice from real freelance writers, based on their experience and the real world feedback,
- Everyone willing to put in some hard work and dedication into this whole journey (sorry about that, but hey, just being honest, this isn’t any “build a profitable business overnight” -type of scheme).
How to consume this guide?
(Most importantly, this whole guide is free, and there’s no obligation on your part to access the information provided.)
Reading it from start to bottom would be the best approach, but we’ve got some more options for you.
- Each chapter is divided into a number of pages, and each page talks about a single idea/technique/method that will position you to get more freelance writing jobs than you can handle.
- If you’re feeling confident, you can pick just the sections that interest you the most and pay close attention to the action points presented at the end of every section. They will give you guidance along with a list of the crucial things to do at each step of your freelancing journey.
- Also, each page comes with one main thought and a one-sentence takeaway to give you a bird’s eye view of what’s being discussed.
- Finally, at the end, there’s a handy cut-out-‘n-keep checklist with all the most important action points and details, which you can…well, cut out and keep.
