Horkey Handbook – 30 Days or Less to Freelance Writing Success

What if in the next 30 DAYS you could start a successful business from scratch? Using a skill you already have.

And a bit of sweat equity.

If you love to write (like you do it for fun anyway), there’s a business to be had writing for the web.

Writers ARE in demand.

The opportunity for you to make a living as a freelance writer has never been better.

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the demand for writers and authors is expected to grow 6% from 2010 to 2020. As of May 2011, freelance writers earned a mean of $97,300 per year (or $46.78 per hour), according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Their wages put them in the upper 75 percent of ALL writer salaries, which included those working for companies.

This high demand for writers means that you have the ability to earn significantly more as a freelancer.

In fact, YOU get to:

  • Determine your niche.
  • Set your own rates.
  • Create your own service offerings.
  • And grow by outsourcing work to independent contractors (if you want!)

Businesses need YOUR help!

Content marketing is HOW most businesses are marketing.

Sure, you’ll still see billboards on the freeway, hear ads and endorsements on the radio, but this little platform we call the internet has opened up a whole new world when it comes to businesses connecting with their ideal customers.

And it works.
