Tired of applying to writing jobs only to find that they pay terribly? Worried that your only choices are content mills and "work for exposure"?
Skip the garbage jobs and earn your worth with this no-nonsense approach to finding, pitching and securing the kind of clients you can finally brag about. Not everyone is making a living as a writer, but they should!
This course, which launches new for 2018, will take you through the strategies I have used to increase my writing earnings and build a reputation as a freelance writer for journalism and marketing clients.

"Linsey's Freelance Course has been invaluable to me. The information in her course helped me secure my first few clients in a very short time and helped me understand how best to price my services. I needed help understanding how to "cold call" clients and why "cold calling" is often the best way to acquire new clients.
Why 10 weeks?
While this course can be completed in as little as 2 weeks, we recommend doing no more than a few lessons a day to fully realize the potential of the tips. Increase your earnings by implementing tips as you go. Most of our students can comfortably progress through every lesson, putting themselves in a better position to get higher-paying clients by the end of 7 weeks. After that, it's likely that you will start seeing results from your efforts in 2-3 weeks after fully implementing all of the information!
I also worked very hard to give you just the "meat and potatoes" of what I know, so I don't waste a lot of time with fluffy backstory. I recommend you work through this course when you can take notes and give it your full attention. I don't want to waste anyone's time with anything but actionable advice! (I'm a busy mom of six, and I understand how precious these minutes are.)
Why this course?
I've written for over 10 years, and when my largest client ended a 6-year contract that was earning me over $50,000 a year, I didn't know what to do. I carefully studied and tried so many methods, until I found the formula of hard work and know-how that worked for me.
Bye-bye 10-cent per word gigs... hello $.50 - $1 a word jobs with recurring monthly revenue!
What skill level do you need to make this program work?
Since this isn't a formal "program" but rather all of the best practices I've learned over the years, anyone can benefit. Use the strategies to increase your earnings, get better clients, transition from full-time employment, or see if freelancing is the route for you. Those with better writing clips and a willingness to market will get better results, but even if you have very few writing clips, you can build them to get to a thriving career! (It just may take more than 10 weeks..) The tips revealed are best business practices for all freelancers, plus some special "writer's" tips that have helped me double my income in the last year!
What experience do you have to teach me stuff?
I'm glad you asked! In addition to being a digital marketing business trainer (with workshops featured a GROWNebraska's MarkeTech event), I have given presentations on building communities, business, and freelance earnings at many conferences over the years, including:
- FinCon (5 years!)
- ASJA's Writer's events
After finding that I was being hired to share the same info over and over, I thought it might be useful to offer a lower-priced option to give the same tips to a wider audience. While I'm still mentoring and doing one-on-one consulting for writers, this new option has opened up my availability to help more people and give me the much-needed flexibility to finish personal and professional projects I've put off for years.
You can also see my most recent freelance clips at my portfolio. Note that I LOVE ghostwriting, so many of my client's projects aren't available for public viewing.
