There comes a point in every freelance writer’s life when they get sick of writing for pennies. You look up one day, realizing you’re burning out fast, and that you need to be writing for money — real money. The kind that pays the mortgage.
Helping writers move up and earn more is my favorite pastime, so I love it when writers tell me they’ve hit this point.
I’ve written a ton on how to grow your writing income here on the blog. But over the years, with 900+ posts, it’s gotten harder to easily find my best tips for leaving the gerbil-wheel of lousy gigs behind.
So I’m happy to announce that I’ve now got my very best ‘earn more from writing’ material organized on a single page.
If you’re ready to earn a serious living at freelance writing, read on for details:
Writing for money — big money, that is
The fact is, freelance writing is hard work. It’s not going to make sense to keep trying to write eight $15 blog posts a day, year after year, for most of us.
At some point, you have to move up. There are only two ways to do that:
- Find better (usually bigger) clients who pay better rates
- Learn better-paid types of writing — white papers, video scripts, speechwriting, book ghosting, case studies, sales copy, etc.
My new resource page covers both of these areas in detail:
What’s waiting for you on this new ‘writing for money’ page? I’ve got links to about dozen of my all-time most useful posts for earning more. And that’s just for starters.
Recent posts on this topic are on that page too, and it constantly updates. So you get the freshest tips on how writers are earning more today.
Finally, it’s got links to relevant e-books, programs, and courses I offer for those who’re ready to take their writing income to the next level.
In other words, it’s my ultimate guide for learning about writing for serious money.
I’m excited to add this useful page to my previous resource pages on how to get started as a freelance writer, and how to earn from your blog.
