Pitch to Profit – A Freelance Writing Course for New Writers

Pitch to profit a freelance writing course for new writers

This August marked 3 years since I started freelance writing. I launched Diary of a Freelancer not long after as I wanted to create an information hub for those who wanted to start freelance writing but didn’t have a clue. This year, my aim was to create an actionable course for new freelance writers and I’m pleased to announce that my brand new freelance writing course for new writers is finally here. Whoop Whoop!

Now, this isn’t something I’ve thrown together in a few minutes. I’ve been working hard and digging deep for the past few months – I wanted to create an impactful resource full of strategies and systems to help new freelance writers launch their career with a bang. Pitch to Profit is a high-value freelance writing course for new writers and bloggers. It’s packed with the exact steps I took to become a freelance writer and earn a consistent income every month.

I know how frustrating and challenging it can be when you want to make a career out of freelance writing but you have no idea how! When I first started, I didn’t have a clue what I was doing. Luckily, I tried and tested a few systems that worked and I show you how exactly I did this in my course so you don’t have to make the same mistakes I did.

How to Find Your Freelance Writing Niche

How to find your freelance writing niche

You’ve probably heard a lot of writers mention their freelance writing niche. But, what is a niche and is it really as important as it seems?

Let’s get straight down to business – a freelance writing niche is essentially the subject or topics you want to write about. So, if your niche is technology, you’re going to be writing about tech topics.

Why is a freelance writing niche important?

  • By choosing a freelance writing niche, you’ll be able to position yourself as an expert in that area.
  • You’ll be able to charge higher fees due to your expertise.
  • You’ll be able to define your ideal client – you’ll know where they hang out so it’s much easier to pitch to them.
