We talked about how much money freelance writers make, and the fact that 15% of writers make $150 an hour or over.
If you’re not making anywhere near that, your mind may boggle. Believe this: once you’re charging $150 an hour or more, you’re quite confident. Your clients are much easier to deal with than the clients whom you charge $25 an hour. Get a few writers together, and we’ve all got horror stories along the lines of “the less they pay, the more they want, even if they have no clue…”
I thought about what makes a successful writing career:
* The writer knows how to sell: he has some copywriting skills;
* He knows how to get great clients;
* He’s building his platform;
* He’s stopped trading hours for dollars — during those hours when he’s not writing for clients, he’s creating his own products.
Are you a “successful” writer?
We all have our own definitions of success means for us, of course.
For me, it means having a HUGE To Be Read pile of books, but I digress… 🙂
Each and every week, I receive dozens of letters from writers, who aren’t having the success they crave. They tell me their stories. Although they’re all different, in one aspect they’re all the same. They want a ticket to success.
Which of my writing guides, they ask, do they need? Depending on the writers’ situation, Julia and I recommend products.
Then the other day, Julia had a great idea. “We should create a package for writers who want success,” she said. “It should be for writers who aren’t beginners, but aren’t real pros, either.”
She’s right. She often is. 🙂
So here you go: the Pro Writer Success Package.
