Earn More Money as a Freelance Writer

Are you a blogger who wants to add paid writing jobs to your portfolio? An excellent writer who has trouble finding paid work? A stay-at-home-mom who wants to turn solid writing skills into a career?

Whatever your reason, I'm so glad you're here.

My name is Holly Johnson and I'm a professional blogger and columnist. As a freelance writer for various publications, I have spent years finding out how to get the best and most lucrative writing jobs. While I got my start on websites like Get Rich Slowly, I now write for publications like The Simple Dollar, Frugal Travel Guy, Lending Tree, and U.S. News and World Report Travel. After all this time, I have realized one thing - the opportunities you will find in online content creation and freelance writing are limitless.

Everything you read on the internet must be written by someone. Companies and corporate blogs pay big money to those who create concise, effective content. The jobs are out there, but they aren't always easy to get.

During this course, I'll teach you how to find those jobs and earn the kind of money you deserve.

I went from $0 to $225,000+ using these strategies!

There are plenty of writing courses available, but I feel I have a unique perspective to offer. The fact that I actually write for a living (instead of just making money selling courses on the topic) has helped me learn what it takes to master this craft, get the best and highest-paying writing jobs, and plan a workday to maximize income potential.

Plenty of people have good or excellent writing skills but don’t know how to build a lucrative writing career. My course was created to help you turn those skills into dollars just like I have.

If you're ready to get your writing career off the ground, I can help!
