The explosion of opportunities for brand-new writers this year is greater than ever …

Half a million new businesses opened up in the U.S. in 2022. You know what brand-new business owners don’t have time to do?


And yet, they desperately need words on their website … on their social media pages … sent out in emails … and anywhere they reach out to potential buyers.

They are looking for freelance writers to handle all of it. And you don’t need a lot of experience to be in the running for those opportunities. Here’s why …

This industry is built on a special kind of writing. You don’t need an English degree or a writing background to do it. You don’t even need to be “creative.”

It’s all about following a couple of guiding principles … and the rest is a basic formula that you plug in every time you sit down to write.

Whether you’re writing a web page for a healthcare giant, or a quick social media post for your local vet’s office — the formula and principles are the same.

Which makes it easier than a lot of people think. But the best part?

You can pick up the basic skills in just a few hours!
