I’m a big fan of investing in yourself when it comes to your writing career, so whenever a course filled with valuable information and advice that I don’t see often, coming from successful writers who have succeeded brilliantly in a relatively short amount of time, I jump at it.
Partly, it is for me. I love learning new tips and remembering great evergreen advice I know but lack in practice.
Partly, it is for you. I love sharing awesome resources with you.
Now, this post will include affiliate links. It means if you purchase the courses through my links, it won’t cost you extra, but I’ll earn a little something. If you don’t buy, you will still have learned about an amazing blogger who shares awesome free content on her website.
And yes, I own and completed this course. I keep going back to it for reference on a regular basis, even though I’ve been doing this for a while. Sometimes, you need the extra inspiration and motivation.
The course also comes with its own Facebook group. I can say that the members of the group are lovely, helpful and inspiring.
Now that we got that out of the way, the review:
Earn More Writing
Earn More Writing was created by Holly Johnson, a six-figure writer specializing in personal finance and travel. She co-runs the blog Club Thrifty with her husband, where they give smart, fun and applicable advice on living better for less.
I own the standard package that comes with 8 modules and a bonus section.
The modules are video courses with a written summary, and they each have a worksheet you can print out to study and record your progress.
The modules include:
- How to Establish Your Blog and Brand
- How to Build Your Portfolio and Pitch Clients
- Defending Your Work Day
- How to Transition from Broke to Rich Writing
- Finding and Keeping Your Dream Clients
- Actually Getting Paid
- Get More Work by Making Editors Happy
- Taking Your Income into the Stratosphere
The bonus section includes several guides and a bonus video on ghostwriting for CEOs. The guides include an actual successful pitch letter Holly sent herself, essential resources for freelancers, what editors really want, anatomy of a perfect blog post – and my personal favorite: list of businesses with blogs.
The course, while fun, is a lot of work. However, despite however long you have been doing this, I recommend not skipping even a second of the videos. You can always improve on your brand as a writer.
This course is for all writers of non-fiction who want to make more money and build or maintain a writing career on their own trips. That’s why the course includes modules on branding, time management and relationships with your editors.
