I've been a freelance medical writer since April 2019. Since then, I've landed 7 of my 9 clients – and added $115,000 in annual revenue – through LinkedIn. And that was all simply from optimizing my profile the way you showed me! I'm still on retainer for 5 of those clients, and have been able to more than double my income in the last 6 months.

I don't do much outbound marketing because this year, 90% of my leads have been inbound, mostly from LinkedIn! I've got one $2,500-a-month contract with a major insurer, and another for $3,000 a month as well. I've got jobs from Daimler-Chrysler! Now, execs from Ford USA, Ferrari and Bugatti share my updates, which has led to great new connections and leads. Thanks for all your profile tips!

Most of the clients I've taken on since late 2018 are from LinkedIn, most notably Kareo, which is a $12,000 contract. I landed it with a simple 'thanks for connecting' message, asking if they'd be willing to refer me. Instead, they directed me to their company content manager! Thanks, Carol.

There are more than a few courses, ebooks and coaches available online, offering to teach you about LinkedIn. Many cost $500-$2000, and take a whole year. So this is not your only option. But we’re confident it’s one of the best.
Carol has been teaching LinkedIn marketing to her own coaching students for years now. So you're getting proven best practices for getting client leads on the platform.
It's also an affordable, go-at-your-own-speed intensive that helps you quickly acquire LinkedIn marketing skills you can use today to command higher rates... not a long-term commitment.
I was working LinkedIn, but needed inspiration to double down and stick to a schedule. In your program, I started sending 20 connection invites, engaging with 5 posts, and posting content 4 times a week. I not only opened the year with $5,000 in new work as a result, I've had so much success getting views on updates that I've started helping solopreneurs generate LinkedIn leads. LinkedIn is massive!

My two big wins were landing Lucky Brand Jeans through LinkedIn - a $7,000 project - and Beardbrand, which was about $25,000 worth of revenue. And both were through simple 'thank you for connecting' InMails. Thanks for the LinkedIn tips, Carol!
—Sabrina Gaffney, Los Angeles brand messaging and marketing consultant | restaurants | ecommerce | fashion | lifestyle
I've gotten FIVE new clients from LinkedIn worth $15,000 -- and that's just so far this year! It happened with a combination of optimizing my profile and sending LOTS of connection requests and networking. I shoot for 25 per day. Thanks for all the LinkedIn help!

Simple: In a time when it's hard to network in person, LinkedIn is the busiest and best place to connect with companies and publications editors who need writers! While the mass, online job boards are full of flakes, lowballers, and outright scams (so many, right now!), LinkedIn is where bigger, better organizations go to search for a freelance writer. If you're not there... you're not contacted.
Nearly 700 million members can't be wrong! In a time when you can't hit that Chamber meeting or attend a big in-person trade show, LinkedIn is where you can easily identify, and get seen by, a large number of quality prospects.
Once you know what to do and say, it's easy to stand out — because most freelance writers on LinkedIn have useless profiles and no idea how to promote on the platform (without annoying prospects and getting blocked, reported, and possibly banned).
If you're struggling to find clients (or to get paid by current ones, who've put projects on 'pause,') find a whole new, better client base on LinkedIn. We'll guide you through the process, step-by-step.
It may feel like work has dried up, if you're just checking Upwork or Craigslist ads, or a content-mill dashboard. But writers marketing on LinkedIn report they're busier and earning more than ever!
Ready to join the elite of writers who use LinkedIn to find clients, in good times or bad?
