Kickstart Your Freelance Writing Career: 30 Days or Less to Freelance Writing Success Review — 6 Comments

  1. Hi! I have heard about Gina Horkey before and about her Handbook site. I’m interested in taking a look at some of her products. Becoming a virtual assistant sounds interesting. And enrolling in her course of 30 Days or Less to Freelance Writing Success sounds even better. I’ll give them both a try. 

    Do you know if she recommends “sports equipment” among the niches that pay the best? Thank you in advance.

    • A lot of people have had great success with both courses, Henry. So go for it! 🙂

      Regarding  your question about “sports equipment” as a best paying niche it is a pretty specific one. In the course, she lists the top-paying niches as: copy-writing, medical writing, personal finance, B2B (business-to-business) writing, and technology.

      But that doesn’t mean that other niches aren’t viable. My friend’s freelance writing niche is primarily Human Resources and career development and she still get plenty of good gigs!

      Hope this helps,

      Robin

  2. This is a pretty good article on how to develop writing as a freelance career, even full time. The courses you suggested may seem to be expensive, but I am sure they are worth it. Especially if it will give you the right mindset, tools and teach you to have a great strategy in pitching your services to prospective clients. I also like that you linked a separate interview with Gina Horkey. It is very helpful. All the best!

    • I do hope it is helpful, Arwil. Deciding to buy a course is always a hard decision – you have to be convinced it will be worth it, you have to know you will make use of it and you have to have the resources to buy it. I don’t know if these tips could help figuring out how to save up for whichever course you want.

      Gina’s course does, in my opinion, help develop the mindset you need and provide the tools and strategies you need to pitch for clients. And what is the use of being able to write great articles if you don’t have any clients who want them?

      I like Gina’s interviews too. I learned a lot myself from both our interviews (on freelance writing and on becoming a virtual assistant) with her.

      Let me know if you have any questions,

      Robin

  3. Freelance Writing is always something that I’m interested in so I appreciate your post here. That Gina Horkey left a high-paying corporate job is a good sign as it shows confidence in what’s she has to offer. I appreciate honesty and it is a rare find these days. I like the variety of lessons with this course as well as a list of websites to find and pitch clients. That there is a 30-day money back guarantee is another good sign. No video lessons is not a big deal. The price seems pretty reasonable assuming one will be able to develop a successful freelance writing business. I’ll definitely check out the Horkey Handbook further through your link, thank you!

    • Glad you liked it, Pentrental. Your points are all quite pertinent. I know that no video lessons is a drawback for some people, but as I said in the review, Gina’s writing style is pretty interesting and clear. So I don’t think it is such a big deal either. 

      I know quite a few  people who have built successful home-based businesses after taking Gina’s courses. So if freelance writing is your piece of cake, go for it!
