about earning more from their freelance writing...
Ramped to $96K in first full-time year!
“I’ve seen a sharp increase in income and incoming leads, since going through the Den 2X program–and that’s just from updating my website, portfolios, and my LinkedIn. The clients I've gained are recurring clients, which has helped me jump to almost $100k in my first year of freelancing full time! Thanks, Carol.”—Dawn Killough
“My goal coming into 2X was to shift from querying editors to attracting business clients, because it would pay more and be less of a crapshoot. After taking the Den 2X self-study course, I’m making enough that I’ve already cut back on magazine pitches by one-third! I used the Den 2X materials to analyze my current business and the possibilities for new clients in my health-tech niche.
“The information on writing letters of introduction targeting businesses was huge. And I started sending LOIs to businesses that looked promising. I fixed up my LinkedIn and tinkered a bit with my pretty rudimentary web presence. By early summer, I'd picked up a couple of good retainer clients — and by mid-summer, I had three and had raised my prices a bit with the first two. Together, they provide a solid base income, and doing better-paid work leaves me extra hours so I can send journalistic queries that interest me. That was my goal, and by tapping into the Den resources, I got it ... in just a few months. So I’m quite happy!”—Marcia Clemmitt
I’ve gone from earning $1,200 a month to billing $5,000 a month!
"In my first 6 months in Den 2X, I gained the confidence to get rid of low-paying clients. Using the program, I was able to be proactive and find better-paying clients — I wasn’t just sitting and waiting. Working the Road Map’s “low hanging-fruit” section, I contacted a company I worked for in the past, and now I’m working steadily for them. I also up-sold another client a white paper. I’ve gone from earning $1,200 a month to billing $5,000 a month the past three months!” —Jennifer Koebele
I just closed February’s accounts, and I grossed a shade under $7,200.
"Last Thursday, I just closed February’s accounts, and I grossed a shade under $7,200. I smashed my previous record, back in September, by $1,000.” —Charles Owen-Jackson
Earned Over 2X — In Just Six Months!
"Den 2X made me get serious about accounting — I analyzed what I actually earned last year, and started tracking what I’m earning now. With help from the program, I put together a marketing plan and set goals. Then, it was just a matter of targeting and reaching out to prospects — including one who said, “I’ve never been asked! I could really use help with our visitors’ guide and our blog.” The pay has been great! I’ve more than doubled my monthly billings.” —Teresa Bitler
Doubled My Income Within the First Year
“I doubled my income within the first year of completing 2X and I’ve only been increasing my income since then. Also, I cannot emphasize just how valuable it is to be part of the graduate Slack group. This is a daily resource for having somewhere to vent, share success stories, find resources, ask for advice on pricing, and more. Den 2X is the best thing you can do with your money if you’re a freelance writer.” —Chanoa Tarle
On My Way to 2Xing My Income
"I was earning $2,500 per month consistently before I joined Den 2X, knowing this would be my step up. The tailored program helped me separate the wheat from the chaff of online advice you see all over the Internet... I was able to look at my client analysis and devise a marketing plan for myself. Now, the website I developed as part of Den2X brings me at least 7 leads a week. Plus 5 leads a week off my LinkedIn profile, which Den2X helped me improve. I recently secured two $1,100 per month clients off LinkedIn and am on my way to 2xing my income by the end of the program. Plus, Den2X has given me a beautiful mindset and some great pals. I am so excited about the fact that I can consistently use the training to 2X my income EVERY YEAR. Thank you Carol for making me believe it was possible to achieve financial freedom while having freedom of lifestyle.” —Divya Agrawal
My income has skyrocketed... and Den2x has set me on a path for even greater future success.
"The most apparent result of going through Den2x has been the increase in my hourly rate – from $9/hr to $150/hr. However, I want to illustrate some of the less obvious benefits of the course. Yes, my income has skyrocketed, but what Den2x has done is set me on a path for even greater future success.
It’s taught me how to screen clients properly. Now I am working with better quality clients who recognize the value a professional writer brings to the table.
I’m getting noticed by the heavyweights of my industry, and CEOs of billion-dollar companies. Articles that I’m self-publishing are getting tens of thousands of views, and getting the attention of companies I want to work with.
It’s helped me to build myself into an authority figure of my niche. Large companies are starting to reach out to me, which I can then leverage to build further authority.
I’ve built long-lasting friendships with other writers from Den2x who I can bounce ideas off. We keep each other accountable. We encourage and motivate each other. We celebrate each other's successes.
Finally, I have a marketing plan and a way of testing what works and what doesn’t. I’m not fumbling around in the dark, bidding on low-paying jobs or wasting my time on job boards and freelancer sites.
You might be considering Den2x, and thinking ‘can I really afford to do it’ but after completing the course and having it literally change my life, I would ask you, ‘can you afford to NOT do it?’” —Neil Pope
