What if in the next 30 DAYS you could start a successful freelance writing 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.
“Hindsight being 20/20, I’d start an online business over ANY other kind.”

In early 2014, I (Gina Horkey) didn’t even know that getting paid to write online was a thing. In fact, when I pictured professional writers, novelists and technical writers were the only types that came to mind.

I didn’t understand that people just like you and me were getting paid hundreds of dollars to write blog posts or sales copy for websites. Suffice it to say, at that time content marketing was NOT a word in my vocabulary…

(Don’t know what content marketing means? It’s basically using written content, like blog posts, case studies, white papers, email newsletter, ebooks, and sales copy to connect with a target market to offer solutions to their problems in the form of products and services. )

You mean I could get paid to write blog posts?

Without having to go back to school to get a journalism degree? Heck yeah, sign me up!

I LOVED writing and was desperate for a career change, but as the breadwinner of our young family of four I was a bit leery. Could this new-fangled online business schtick really work for me?

Could it really replace my cushy and dependable salary in personal finance?

“30 Days or Less was so helpful as I first dipped my toe into freelancing, and it continues to be helpful 6 months in! I’ve been blown away by how great Gina is about answering questions and guiding her clients through the journey.”

The only way I could find out was to give it a shot.

So I did.

  • I started my business in May of 2014, secured my first client (and paycheck) within a month and hustled to keep building it from there.
  • Within six months I was earning $4,000 per month on the side of my full-time job – with a baby and toddler in tow.
  • And within eight months of looking into this freelance writing thing, I had quit my job and left the 9-5 behind!

Was it scary? Heck yes!

But that’s why I started my business as a side hustle first to validate the concept. And that’s what I’d recommend that you do as well.

Or maybe you’re just looking to pull in a little extra income into your household. That’s cool, this course will work for you too!


Simon Cave

“In Gina’s course you will learn everything from choosing the right freelance niche to finding clients – including the details necessary to pitch yourself effectively. This course is ideal for people who want to learn how to start freelance writing, but have no idea what steps to take to begin.”

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!).

“16 lessons into the 30-day course and I have two clients lined up! And one is a potentially awesome recurring gig. $500 in income in my second week of “official” freelancing. Not a bad start. Thanks, Gina!”
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.

But not all business owners like to write…
  • Are good at it.
  • Let alone have time to do it.
  • Are large enough to have a writer (or 10) on staff.
  • Or maybe they just prefer working with freelancers for the multitude of reasons contracting is becoming the preferred way to do business.
They need YOU!
These businesses need help from writers just like you, who can help them:
