You can use these techniques to understand how to structure your writing business online, find paying customers quickly, and quickly create an independent lifestyle around your paid writing!

Heck, I even show you how to transition from writing for other people as a work-for-hire into “freedom writing” where you work for yourself!

In fact, here’s just a sample of what we’ll cover on this incredible course:

  • The exact mechanics of how to get paid real money for your writing by other people…
  • The THREE (3) categories of paid writing and how to make money in each one of them…
  • Specific strategies for making money with your writing in 15-minute slots EVERYONE has time for…
  • A simple, duplicatable strategy to get people to eagerly pay you for your writing while avoiding the “wage slave” trap that snags most writers…
  • How to leverage your writing into cash even if you have no products or ebooks to sell and want to avoid customer service like the plague
  • 3 Specific things you can write in 30 minutes that people will eagerly pay you for…
  • How to leverage sites like "Fiverr" to get much more lucrative and ongoing writing jobs (that pay a LOT more than just a measly $5 per gig)…
  • The single biggest mistake people make when they first try to get paid for their writing (and how to avoid it)…
  • How to get paid for writing you don’t do! (Yep, how to get paid for writing jobs without actually doing any of the writing yourself)…
  • FOURTEEN (14) specific strategies that will get you paid to write that take an 90 minutes or less to do…
  • … and much, MUCH More!

And of course, put this course to the test! Understand that we insist on offering a FULL, Unconditional 30-Day Money-Back Guarantee. This course WILL show you how to get paid to write online, or we'll give you your money back... no questions asked.

Quick Disclaimer: this is obviously not an offer of employment. Some of these freelance writing job opportunities are one-off, others can repeat indefinitely, and still others involve freelance writing for yourself (which is ultimately where you want to be because that's how you typically make the most money and have the most control over your time). Some may lead to full time employment, but the VAST majority are done on an independent contractor basis (which is what freelance writing is all about).

My Promise: So while I can't guarantee you'll find a full-time job, I can guarantee to show you all the ways I make and have made money as a freelance writer as well as how others are doing it too, right now, online. The rest will be up to you to take what you learn and apply it as any good freelance writer would.

Who is the target audience?
  • This course is intended for people who want to write and get paid for your writing
  • This course is intended for people who have at least an hour a day they want to devote to getting paid to write online
  • This course is NOT for the get-rich-quick or make money with no effort crowd

Best-Selling Author, Speaker & Writing Coach

My name is Jim Edwards. I’ve been selling my books and ebooks online since 1997. In 2001, selling my books and ebooks online became my full time job.

I started out as a mortgage broker and a realtor who wrote a book in 1994 about how to sell your house yourself and save the commission. I originally leveraged that book with local home sellers to get my foot in the door to either sell their house or help them buy a new home.

In 1997, I was introduced to the Internet and saw the massive potential for selling books as downloads (now called ebooks) to people all over the world. Since there were no other people I knew of selling books this way, I had to blaze all my own trails and figure things out with no outside help. So, I dug in and figured it all out, including sales copy, credit card processing, hosting, promotion, book publishing and more.

Along the way I was written up in the New York Times, Entrepreneur magazine, and many other publications worldwide. I even wrote a nationally syndicated newspaper column for 10 years called “The Net Reporter.”

I’ve sold over 100,000 ebooks through the years, which means I have the real-world experience to show you how to sell a lot of books too.

I’ve built up email subscriber lists totaling over 250,000. I can definitely show you how to build up your audience if that’s what you want to do.

I’ve also taught my proven, easy-to-use strategies all over the world to MANY thousands of new and aspiring authors just like you to help them write great books, publish them quickly, and sell by the truckload!

Bottom line: I help real people just like you write real books they can be proud of and use those books to massively grow and expand their new or existing businesses.
