Are you tired of being paid less than you're worth for your freelance work? Are you ready to earn a great hourly rate that allows you to work on fulfilling assignments, with clients that respect you, and decrease the number of hours you have to work? My course will help you ditch low-paying clients and start being paid the high freelance rates you deserve.
Welcome to the "How to Earn 100 Dollars an Hour Freelancing" course. I created this course because earning $100 an hour is a freelance goal I have worked toward throughout my 15-plus years freelancing. In fact, I regularly earn $200 an hour or more on most freelance assignments and projects. I don't limit myself to earning $100 an hour and I suggest you don't either. (But the course title is catchy, eh?)
If you're wondering, How do you get clients to pay you that freelance hourly rate? The answer is in the following 10 lessons.
In short, your freelance hourly rate doesn't have to be public knowledge. Earning a rate of $100 an hour or more is based on a number of things, that includes:
- Finding higher-paying clients
- Doing project work
- Taking on freelance assignments that you can complete in a reasonable amount of time
- Securing repeat work
- And more!
This course is ideal for writers (and freelancers of all walks of life) who have some experience freelancing. It's much easier to command a higher freelance rate and earn at least $100 an hour freelancing if you have work to show in your portfolio and experience working with a few freelance clients.
If you're new to freelance writing and want to learn the basics of how to write a pitch and how to write an article, my Get Paid to Write course will better serve you.
When you complete this course, you'll walk away with:
- The knowledge of how to set a freelance hourly rate that works for you
- Where to find higher-paying clients
- How to increase your hourly rates with existing clients
- Skills on how to secure freelance project work
- Tips on how to work faster and smarter, not harder
- Strategies on finding a freelance niche you LOVE that pays well
I've been a full-time freelancer for over eight years and earning a six-figure salary freelancing for over four years. I earn this six-figure salary working less than 20 hours a week for a multitude of high-caliber clients---many of whom I've worked with for over five years. This course shares the know-how I've applied in my business to scrutinize potential new clients, become more efficient and resourceful, and tips on how to negotiate higher rates.
I want other freelancers to be able to earn a good living doing their craft and to not have to suffer through feast or famine seasons like I did.
In addition to the 10 freelance course lessons, here are BONUS PDFs and resources you'll get:
- 3 Article Pitch Examples of real pitches I sent that turned into assignments
- My Step-by-Step Process of how I earn over $600 an hour for some clients
- A Sample Marketing Plan that shows you how to reach your weekly, monthly, and annual goals
- A Client Intake Form Example (so you can screen low-paying clients without wasting your time)
- And more!
These lessons and materials are valued at over $400 and are available for only $299!
I look forward to having you enroll in the course and take your freelancing career to the next level.
