One of my personal finance writing buddies has an online course designed to help earn more writing. Starting on Black Friday she’s offering a short-term, 20 percent discount on her Standard and Pro packages.
Why take the Earn More Writing course? Because Holly Porter Johnson knows what she’s talking about.
“I make my living as a freelance writer, not selling courses,” Johnson says.
In other words, she practices what she preaches. Rather than spend all her time promoting her course and selling webinars, she’s a workaday writer who routinely bills five figures per month. Last year she earned $225,000 as a freelancer.
Earn More Writing speaks both to beginners and veterans. Writing jobs are out there, but many people simply don’t know where to look and how to position themselves to start getting paid work.
“Plenty of people have good or excellent writing skills but don’t know how to build a lucrative writing career,” she says. “My course was created to help you turn those skills into dollars, just like I have.”
Here are just some of the things you’ll get from Earn More Writing:
- How to determine your writing niche, and where to find gigs to match
- Writing effective “cold” pitches
- How to set a fair price for your work (and how to raise that price over time)
- Ways to become an expert in your field(s)
- Best practices for an “efficient” workday, vs. spinning your creative wheels
- Worksheets and action items
- Access to the course Facebook page
About that last: I’m a member of that Facebook page, and can tell you that the advice and job tips you find there are invaluable. It’s also a safe place to vent when you’re having one of those days.
Spend a little now to earn more writing later
The basic package features eight modules, action items, worksheets and access to the Facebook page. The standard ($199) and pro ($349) packages get all that plus a bonus module called “Get Rich Ghostwriting for CEOs.” Depending on the package you buy, you’ll also get bonuses such as coaching sessions, feedback on pitches or writing assignments, a guide to what editors really want and a list of 250 corporations with blogs.
As noted above, the coupon code is good only on the standard and pro packages of Earn More Writing, which normally cost $199 and $349, respectively. The basic course package is $149. Totally worth it, according to members of Johnson’s Facebook page.
The sale begins on Friday, Nov. 24 and ends Monday, Nov. 27. To sign up, visit the Earn More Writing page and use the coupon code BLACK25 at checkout.
Remember: The cost of the course is a business expense.
The above link is an affiliate one, which means that I get a finder’s fee for sending you to the course. This arrangement and ad revenue are how I keep this blog and my personal website running. If that bugs you, then don’t use my link; go find the course on your own.
But do find it. If you’re serious about making money as a freelancer, Johnson can tell you how to do it. Her success story and those of her students are proof that the jobs are out there, just waiting to be filled. Go earn yourself some money.
