Is Freelance Writing a Viable Career Option for SAHMs? — 5 Comments

  1. Hi Gina,

    I might be interested in becoming a freelance writer. How do you get involved? Is there a company to join? I have no experience but love writing and consider myself a good candidate.

    Kind regards
    Monique

  2. Hi there, Gina!

    Great introduction to freelance writing career. This is something that I am looking to diversify in the near future as part of my goal of working from home.

    You mentioned launching a business with a freelance writing course. What program would you recommend and how much do they usually cost?

    Also, once you have a website, how do you go about promoting your skills? Do you use any service platform for this purpose?

    Curious to know. Thank you.

    • Hey Cathy,

      Not to be too biased, but I’d recommend my own. 😉 Here’s a snippet from an email I got just yesterday:

      “Hey Gina,

      I just want to let you know how grateful I am for your course. I just had two client calls today, and landed both of them. Pretty soon I might have more work than I know what to do with!”

      Promoting yourself and pitching for work should be where you spend at least 90% of your available time before your have clients. The course goes into detail on where to source writing work, but social media, job boards and cold pitching companies directly are great ways to start.

      Good luck!

    • Hi Cathy,

      I have to add that Gina really holds you by the hand and leads you step by step. Her course has three packages ranging from $59 to $199 depending on how far you want to delve in and how much support you want. Sorry, I might be biased too, but I go for courses where the course creators are really involved and responsive – and this is one of those! 🙂

      Let us know if you have any other questions,
      Robin
