I officially launched – TODAY, November 16th – Write Your Way to Your First $1k – a course for bloggers and new writers and I’m super excited about it all! I started down this path in the summer when I decided I wanted to start writing a guide for new freelance writers.
Over time, it turned into a comprehensive course for bloggers and new writers. The reason I wanted to make a course like this was because not many bloggers or people know about how to leverage the skills they already have to earn a viable living.
This course is filled with the exact steps I took to earn my first $1k and go on to replace my income as a teacher. It’s a proven method to help you set up your business, build your presence, pitch like a pro and land high-paying clients.
And to celebrate my launch, I’m offering my course packages at a 20% discount, but only for the first 24 hours.
What to Expect
It’s a 7 week self-paced course that’s filled with templates, email swipe copy, and the exact pitches I use, including the one that landed me my first gig of $100 for an 800-word blog post and my current pitch that has a 75% close rate.
There are 7 modules and 41 lessons. You can take a day to read all the lessons in a module or take a week. You have lifetime access to the course, which means you can take the time you need to digest the material.
So, if you take the course as I had laid out – 7 modules in 7 weeks – by the end of 7 weeks you should have the tools and skills you need to set up your business, land clients and start making your way to your first $1k.
I’ve had beta readers go through my course and tell me how detailed my course is and how easy it is to follow and implement.
I’m so happy to hear this as I worked hard on this course and all the supplement guides too!
Oh, yea the guides..and the bonus module.
You’ll also receive – depending on which package you choose – a pitching guide, social media guide to landing clients and a quick copywriting guide to increase your value as a freelance writer.
And, a bonus module of advanced lessons to scale your business and more than double your income.
I also have case studies of other successful writers who’ve built a successful freelance business.
There’s also a private group, but that’s a bit down the road once there are enough people enrolled in my course. It will sort of be a mastermind group where we all can hash it out, talk, work together and motivate each other on.
An Exclusive Excerpt

My Goal for This Course
I’ve lined up some awesome guest post spots for this month and a few more for December. I’m also drumming something up in regards of a promotional spot on a new site, but it’s all hush-hush for now!
I do want to explore paid ads, but that’ll probably happen in the New Year.
My goal right now is to sell at least 20 courses by the New Year. It’s not a small goal, but it’s also not a big goal. I’m hoping with my reach and connections, that it’s at least doable.
I’m also toying with the idea of being a bit more transparent on this blog. I might start doing income reports on the services/products I offer on this site (not my freelance writing client work). I’m not sure if my audience cares about that, but it’s something that’s on my mind (let me know if you do!)
I Can Take a Breather
The weeks leading up to my launch have been crazy. I’m actually battling a sickness right now. I can barely talk (my throat is killing me). I sound like Kermit the frog!
Yeah, the stress of putting this all together has taken a toll on my body. I never get sick. Even when both my twins come home with colds, I never catch them.
But, these last two months I’ve had the stomach flu (was out of work for an entire week. Couldn’t even sit up) and now I have this nasty cold/throat thing.
Now that my course is finally out, I can take a little bit of a breather. I know, though, the real work begins – promotion and marketing! Luckily I have a knack for digital marketing.
This is a new chapter in my journey as a freelance writer and I can’t wait to see how it progresses. If you’re thinking about freelance writing, why not give my course out a try?
P.S. when you enroll, be sure to tweet all about it using the course hashtag #writeto1k
