Raves for Our Courses

"By far the most valuable part of the course has been the coaching and mentoring. "

Kylie Saunder

“I just signed my 4th retainer client and numbers 5 and 6 are about to sign as well! I've done website content for three new websites, a 4-panel brochure, and Webinar content. I got some clients from networking, and some from just changing my job title on LinkedIn, from what I learned in Launchpad. I've increased what I'm charging and at this point, my price for a blog post ranges from $125 - $400 and up. I have so much work, I'm scrambling to keep up. I'm projecting $40K in income this year. Thanks, Carol!"

"Got my first real client—and launched my career"

Daryl Watson

"After just a few weeks in the Den, I went to a networking event and got my very first REAL client – one who was willing to pay a professional rate. I’ve since used the Den’s resources to build an SEO-friendly website that’s brought in more work opportunities than I know what to do with! My cannabis writing took off, and now I have three regular clients, plus two more that give me project work.  

If you’re a freelance writer, and you want to take your business to the next level, join The Freelance Writers Den. It’s one of the best investments you can make. "

Daryl Watson The Cannabis Copywriter  

"Finally got my client-attracting website created." 

Betsy Baker

I’ve appreciated this course. It’s been the kick in the pants I’ve needed to get a simple website up. I know the website still needs a lot of tweaking, but a lot of decisions have been made and it’s up. I can make it better bit by bit.

Thanks for laying out the info step by step, requiring homework, giving encouraging feedback. It was just the help I needed. And Omer is inspiring!

Also want to say a big thank you to Jen, Omer, and Robyn for the live Q&A calls. Those were very encouraging and your patience and answers much appreciated.

What makes this program unique?

There are plenty of classes about how to be a freelance writer. Go grab a $12 self-study class on Udemy...and get exactly what you paid for. Writers spin in circles for years, trying to use resources like these—because your launch needs guidance, to go fast.

Let you in on a dirty freelance-industry secret: Many "become a freelance writer" courses online are taught by inexperienced writers (we've seen one where the "coach" freelanced for ONE month, then sold a course). Here, you get two seasoned freelance writers and teachers with decades of experience in freelancing. 

Also, no other course gives you this level of homework feedback in a special Facebook group, live Q&A time, answers, templates, and advice —the ingredients you need to succeed.  

Freelance Writers Den: The unique writing community for learning and support

Finally, no other course comes with a month of full access to everything in our Freelance Writers Den community — 300+ hours of additional learning opportunities, our Junk-Free Job Board, 24/7 forums, support from 500+ members, and more, to supplement your learning. All for the price of this single course!

  • Get templates. No need to reinvent the wheel—we know what works, and will hand you those formulas
  • Keep it simple. We've boiled this down to just four basic steps. Niche, create an online presence, get referrals, pitch. Get hired! No more reading 'round and 'round online, not knowing what action to take

Why launch your freelance writing career now?

Launchpad rocket

It's simple: Remote work is now the dominant mode. Unemployment is high in creative fields, and the job market is difficult right now. There's never been a better time to take control of your own destiny and build a freelance career. Companies that have done mass layoffs are turning to freelance writers to get the marketing done as they pivot, reopen, and communicate their changes. There's a ton of opportunity if you know where to look.

"Recession 2024" is here.

If you're exploring the idea of freelancing, take a massive shortcut to success — spend March with seasoned pro writers who can show you exactly what's working best in these unique times to launch and quickly build freelance income.
