Follow These 4 Steps to Land Your First Writing Paycheck
When it comes to getting paid to write, there are two key areas of focus:
- Learning the skills
- Getting paid assignments
Despite popular belief (or fears!), neither has to be overly complicated …
Take writing case studies, for example …
The projects are short — normally only two pages. And since they follow a formula, they’re very easy to learn how to write.
You can learn how to write them — at a professional level — in about four weeks if you follow a process like this one.
Then it’s time to focus on finding paid assignments …
The demand is high, with over 73% of B2B marketers using case studies. That means millions of prospective clients need these written, right now.
And the going rate? $1,500 for a two-page story — even as a beginner.
In today’s issue of The Writer’s Life, Case Study Specialist Casey Hibbard shows you how to land those all-important first paying assignments in her article: The ‘Non-Salesy’ Steps I Took to Grow My Case Study Work.
