A Low-Pressure Way to Transition into The Writer’s Life

Aspiring freelance writers are always excited when they find AWAI, and realize just how many ways they can make a living as a writer.

But many also want an opportunity that will safely allow them to transition into the writer’s life without a lot of stress.

So today, I want to share with you a very low-pressure way to transition from where you are today … into the life of a well-paid writer.

And if you already have a writing business, I’ll show you how to gain more stability, more peace of mind, and more money.

The opportunity? It’s called content marketing.

Let me explain …

Content marketing is the BIGGEST marketing trend right now …

Ninety percent of businesses are using it. And this year alone, these same companies plan on spending $135 BILLION on it.

But here’s what makes this an incredibly unique opportunity for writers …

Companies need content — in the form of short articles, blog posts, Facebook posts, and more — written on a regular basis.

And that makes it one of the EASIEST ways to get a retainer deal — a monthly flat fee you get paid in advance, in exchange for writing a set amount of content each month.

Retainers mean you have income you can count on.

Which is why this writing opportunity is one of the most stress-free ways to transition into the writer’s life.

You get peace of mind … you get the same kind of stability you have with a paycheck from a “regular” job … and since you can have retainers with as many clients as you’d like, your income has no limit.

It’s not unusual for a company to shell out $1,000 … $2,000 … $4,000 or more per month to keep content writers long-term.

And when I say long-term, I mean it: I’m currently going on seven years with one of my freelance writers, am on ‘year five’ with two others, and have at least a few others going on three years.

So, how can you get started?

The best way I know to master content marketing in the shortest period of time is with AWAI’s Content Mastery: Your Step-by-Step Guide to Becoming a Highly Paid Content Marketing Strategist — put together by none other than Copyblogger’s Brian Clark.

In case you’ve never heard of Brian, he’s one of the absolute best in the world of content marketing.

He grew Copyblogger from nothing into a $7 million-a-year operation — all through writing content and marketing it strategically!

And in this program, he’ll give you everything he’s learned about content marketing from more than a decade of being in the trenches.

By the time you’re done, you’ll have the tools you need to launch your career in a very low-pressure way — or significantly boost your current income while working less.

Instead of struggling to find new clients every month, you could be an expert with ongoing relationships with a handful of businesses who pay you steadily … month after month.

Plus —

If you get your copy of Content Mastery by August 15th at midnight ET, you get an extra $150 off the entire price of the program.
