Get two emails every week with curated freelance writing job opportunities available right now. Plus, regular strategies and tactics battled-tested from six-figure freelance writers.
Let me guess, when you first decided to become a freelance writer, you thought finding clients would be easy...right?
All you had to do was hop on Upwork, apply for jobs, and a plethora of high-paying work would just fall into your lap. That’s how it’s supposed to work, right?
Unfortunately, the reality is far different.
Finding freelance clients can be tough.
It’s a race to the bottom on the most popular job boards, and finding businesses and agencies that value you enough to pay a fair wage can be a challenge, to say the least.
Cold emailing works, but it can be extremely time-consuming. And all of the rejection that comes along with it can take a toll on your psyche and confidence.
So how do you find jobs for legitimate businesses that pay you a decent wage and respect you as a writer?
That’s the ultimate question, isn’t it?
Fortunately, I’ve got a solution.
After graduating college, I got a job in the finance industry and realized very quickly that a suit and tie weren’t for me.
I don’t mind putting in 40, 50, 60 hour work weeks when I’m in control and working on my own business.
But I just couldn’t ever get over being chained to a desk and building someone else’s business.
I started a blog called Location Rebel. Six months later, I left my job, and I moved to Thailand for a year where I grew the blog and figured out what was next.
Unfortunately, when I left, I didn’t have any real income to speak of.
This was terrifying, but I quickly realized that if there’s one thing my education did provide, it was pretty decent writing skills.
I also realized there were thousands of people looking for people who could write.
So I started freelancing.
Since then, I’ve made a living freelance content and copywriting, while also teaching over 4,000 students how to do the same thing through our Flagship Course Location Rebel Academy.
We just celebrated our 10th Anniversary. There’s a reason we’re still around, while so many other courses and communities have faded away.
What we teach works. We know how to build writing businesses.
But enough about me, what about that question I posed earlier:
How do you find legitimate, sustainable jobs as a freelance writer?
Throughout my entrepreneurial career, I’ve had a handful of mentors and friends that have had my back.
People who have looked out for me, given helpful advice, and been allies while growing a new business.
One of the most helpful things these friends have done is send me regular emails with advice, tips, jobs, and other encouraging words of support.
Everybody needs a friend like that when they’re building their business, and that’s why we’ve created this private newsletter.
With Freelancer’s Friend, we set out with one goal in mind: get freelance writers jobs.
Jobs where you’re respected for your skills.
We send out two emails a week with a curated list of freelance writing jobs available right now.
All you have to do is go and apply.
One of the toughest things new freelancer’s face, is knowing how and where to pitch themselves for work.
We take the hard part out of the process for you.
We tell you about jobs. You go apply.
Simple as that.
But a best friend wouldn’t just email you about jobs.
They’d also include helpful tips to level up your skills.
They might even teach you some of their inside secrets.
And most importantly, they’d provide encouragement and support as you’re building your business.
We send you two emails a week with 5-10 job listings each, plus helpful tips and advice for the working freelance writer. And we even create monthly mini-courses designed to help you improve an aspect of your craft or business.
We’re currently offering Freelancer’s Friend for $49/month or $499 a year. This is 50% off our planned pricing of $99 a month or $999 a year.
This price isn’t insignificant, especially if you’re a new freelancer struggling to get work.
But look at it this way...
If you land just one job from our newsletter, you’ll pay for the cost of it for the year.
Two emails a week.
52 weeks a year.
That’s over100 emails.
More importantly, that's over 500 writing opportunities we’re sending your way.
At even a 1% acceptance rate, that’s five freelance jobs you wouldn’t have found otherwise.
And often, all it takes is one good client at the start to help provide a full-time income for you as a writer.
I’m not going to give you a hard sell on this.
If you’re a freelancer who recognizes the value in having jobs presented on a silver platter, and having the support and mentorship of six-figure writers who have been there, done that (and are continuing to do it day in and day out), then you understand the value Freelancer’s Friend provides at $49/month.
You might be wondering what is the difference is between Freelancer’s Friend and our Flagship Community Location Rebel Academy?
In the Academy, we teach you how to do everything yourself.
We help you setup your portfolio website.
We give you templates and tools for creating a process around pitching your services.
We have a vibrant and active community of writers to help you get feedback on your business and answer your questions.
With Freelancer’s Friend, we do a lot of that work for you.
We find the jobs, so you don’t have to.
If you’re doing freelancing on the side, and already know how to pitch, how to set up a portfolio site, and just want job opportunities and some insider secrets, then Freelancer’s Friend is for you.
If you’re just starting out and you want to learn everything necessary to build a full-fledged writing business? The Academy is the better fit.
If you want help building your business, and you want to fast-track getting jobs?
Combining the two is the absolute fastest way to do that.
Do you offer a refund or a free trial?
At this time we're not offering any trial or refunds. You're able to cancel at any time with just a couple of clicks.
What types of jobs are you offering?
We share jobs from a wide variety of places:
We're deeply engrained in the freelance world, so we both share opportunities we've sourced from around the web, and we also share dedicated offers for our members.
I can’t afford $49, do you offer any discounts?
If you apply for all the jobs we share, you should have no trouble making many multiples of this back within the first few months.
If you can't afford $49 to invest in yourself and your business, you may be better off considering another avenue and come back to freelancing when you're able to.
I have very little technical expertise, will I benefit from this?
If you can write at a respectable high school level, Freelancer's Friend will help you.
There are lots of ways you can increase your chances of success, such as a portfolio website, knowing out to cold pitch, and so on. Those are covered in more depth within Location Rebel Academy.
What if I don't know how to pitch my services?
We created an entire introductory course that walks you through everything you need to know to send a successful pitch. This is included for with all Freelancer's Friend memberships.
