Profitable Writers Demonstrate How to Prosper from Your Words

  1. You know, i’ve been wading through uncertainty for a little while now: how do I market myself, how do I pitch to clients, what if i’m not good enough. So it’s definitely good to hear from certified writers, and comments like Carin’s about the ugly first draft are a good reminder to keep at it.

    I joined Authority not too long ago, which was pretty scary because of the investment. Education isn’t one-size-fits-all, but i’m finding Copyblogger to be a pretty snug fit at the moment. It’s helped me find the structure I needed to approach freelancing, content strategy and copywriting more confidently.

    I just wanted to express my gratitude.

  2. I’ve done the “book as business card” bit, and certainly it can work if the book’s on the right topic. But my shortest book, perhaps more properly called a booklet, took me two days to write and is outselling my other sixteen combined. Some topics are more popular than others. So can a writer earn an income writing? Of course. Can the writer earn that income without doing some sort of research into the business aspects of it? Not likely.

  3. I’ve been reading so much lately about the Certified Content Marketer training program, and I’m chomping at the bit! Can someone please email and let me know when I can sign up? I’m ready!

    • I’m so happy to hear that, Pat. 🙂

      The program will open very soon. It’s eight modules total, and they were created by none other than Brian Clark and Sonia Simone. The modules are delivered over four weeks.

      At the end of the four weeks, you have the opportunity to apply to have your content reviewed by the Copyblogger editorial team. We are going to “fast track” the first applications that come in, so the sooner you sign up, the sooner you can get through the material and send in your application.

      People on the official Certification interest list will find out when the program opens a couple of days before everyone else. If you’re not already on the list, add your name at the top of this page, and watch your inbox!

      • Thanks, Pamela! I am on the list. I’m an Authority member, and I’ve been following Brian and Sonia for some time. That’s why I’m so excited. I’ll keep checking my email. Thanks again.

  4. Awesome insights, guys!

    I can certainly relate to Carin’s “write everyday” even when you don’t feel like it. I’ve also found that discipline is the key to success.

    I’d like to know more about CopyBlogger’s Certified Content Marketer training program, is it only written for hired writers? I’m an independent blogger, would it still be a beneficial course to me?

    Thanks for putting this together, Pamela. 🙂


    • Hi Anh,

      Thanks for your interest!

      The course is for people who are writing professionally — either as freelancers or within an organization. It includes writing advice and career/business building guidance that’s tailored toward people who are making a living with their writing.

  5. hey Pamela,
    This is a great article and read, thanks so much for sharing some quality.
    That’s one thing at first I struggles with on my blog, not really knowing how to write properly or for the audience.
    But as I got better at it, I think I do well now 🙂
    Thanks shaun 🙂
