The EXACT Steps You Need to Learn How to Become a Writer.

A Thread

RT for writers on the TL.
I frequently get asked the question “how do I become a writer?” I find it slightly ironic that I usually get that question via email and social media DMs, so the inevitable answer becomes “well, you already are a writer.”
Being a good writer leads to being a better and more coherent thinker. It’s also one of the few mediums that no matter what you do, or who you are in life, you will write nearly every day.

"How I made $50k a month as a freelancer in Nigeria"
In this internet world, it's easy to look at these stories of overnight successes, but there is always so much of a backstory before the big feat.
No one comes out of the gate swinging. And even if it looks like they do, they have honed their skills somewhere else that has enabled them to achieve results so quickly, however, stories like that won't make it to the headline.

If you wanna learn how to get REMOTE JOBS through COLD EMAIL OUTREACH, this thread is for you. RT for job seekers and freelancers on the TL.
Cold email is a way to start and maintain business relationships. To get a better understanding of what it is, let’s think of how business relationships develop in the offline world. Usually, everything starts with a conversation…
Step 1: Edit the “from” line
It may come to you as a surprise that editing the “from” line is featured as a separate step here. We usually set it up for a new email address, and after this, we don’t pay much attention to it.

Whatever your digital skill may be, there's sure a gig that you can find online. I'll take you through the top freelance websites for different digital skills and show you how you can build an appealing profile that will land you an online gig.
Freelancing is a game. You can play to win. Or you can just play. Either way is fine, but, to me at least, winning is more fun and profitable. And one of the best parts is that your win isn’t someone else’s loss; we can all win it together.

How To Become A Freelance Writer In 2021 (with ZERO Experience)

A Thread

RT for writers on the TL
So you want to be a freelance writer, huh?

Well, I’ve got some good news and I’ve got some bad news. Let’s start with the bad.

Building a successful freelance writing business is no walk in the park. It takes a LOT of hard work and dedication. Especially in the beginning.
You will doubt yourself (a lot).

You will feel like quitting.

If that’s not something you’re willing to accept, you better close this thread now and go back to playing Candy Crush.

Still here? Great.

HOW TO MAKE AT LEAST $1000 MONTHLY ON LINKEDIN AS A FREELANCER (MY EXPERIENCE)

//////////////////////////////////////////////////

A THREAD
When i started out freelancing, I took a long hard look discovered there was one MASSIVE problem: The majority of my income was coming from only few clients. And when I say the majority, I’m talking about a revenue concentration of over 80%.
Now that’s a precarious predicament. You only have to lose few client to watch your income take a huge hit. However, the good news is that you can protect yourself from these situations rearing their ugly heads by marketing yourself constantly to diversify your client base.

The Mentorship Programme for Freelancers (Upwork Course)

A Thread
Five million.

That's roughly how many client accounts "live" inside Upwork's database.

Despite that, a staggering number of freelancers ever manage to get any kind of traction on the platform.

They set up a profile, blast out a few proposals, then they wait.
Days go by. Then weeks.

Nothing happens. It's almost like there's nobody on the other end. As if Upwork is somehow... broken?

So what do they do?

They send out MORE proposals.

A Thread.
Freelancing sites are not the only place you can find work.

In a previous thread, I showed you how to get freelance and remote gigs through sending of cold emails, twitter and google. Most of these methods involve contacting the clients directly and sending your pitch via email.
I can’t stress it enough how important your first email really is. This is the email that your potential clients are going to use to analyze you and your skills.

A Thread
If you just want to get to the juicy bits, please feel free to skip. But if you’re wondering why I chose to pursue a career as a freelance copywriter, then read on! My name is Olamide and I’ve worked in digital space for quite some years now.
I’ve been lucky enough to work for an agency, for myself and even a short stint in-house at the beginning of my career. I’ve worked in paid social media, PPC and SEO…so why did I leave that all behind for copywriting? For me, it was a personal choice.
