About the club
Hi, I’m Les Blythe founder of The Freelance Writing Success Club.
I’ve been earning my full-time income freelance writing online since 2011. Freelance writing offers you the opportunity to work from anywhere, on your own terms, and with the clients you choose.
The world has moved on and it’s no longer necessary to be tied to a fixed location to make a very good living as a writer. In fact, many companies choose to hire freelancers as it’s a more efficient and cost-effective option than taking on a full-time staff member.
I created The Freelance Writing Success Club to provide you with useful information, advice, and tips to help you model my success and become a well-paid freelance writer.
What can you write for money?
The list of writing possibilities for freelance writers is almost limitless. With that said, when you’re just starting out it’s a good idea to specialize, for example, my specialty is writing technical and cybersecurity content for IT companies. Here are a couple of ideas for you:
write for the Web
Think of websites and web pages, social media and blog content, white papers, case studies, copywriting and so much more!
Write for Different Industries
The range of industries you can write for is as vast as the types of content you can write – doctors, dentists, accountants, home services companies, new business startups – they all have websites and they all need content.
Write, don’t procrastinate!
Sure, experienced writers do best when it comes to writing for money but, make no mistake, that DOES NOT mean you need to study for years. I started making money in my first month – and you can too.
Quality Content Writing
If there’s one word that sums up a successful freelance writer who makes good money, that word is QUALITY.
Don’t misunderstand me. Quality writing is a given, you need to be a competent writer to earn the big bucks, but it doesn’t stop there. You must deliver quality in everything you do including your interaction with clients, hitting deadlines, and always over-delivering on your promises.
Your mission is to become your client’s trusted partner by demonstrating you’re serious about what you do and delivering an outstanding customer experience every time.
If you get this right, you’ll be able to pick up work whenever you want and the only thing you’ll have to worry about is overbooking your schedule!
I started where you most likely find yourself right now, with no experience to speak of and no clients. These days I work when I want and get very well paid – you can get there too!
