    1. Glad you’ve got the book and are on your way Jackson! 🙂 Your blog is great and I’m glad my comment gave you confidence because that’s a lot to do with getting good writing work…

      Don’t worry – the eBook makes everything seem a bit less scary by breaking it all down. Let me know what you think and how you get on.

  3. Hello Kirsty,

    First, thanks so much for this resource! I hunted and hunted for jobs with no experience on Elance, and was extremely frustrated. reading this post, and the rest of your ebook definitely demystified the process of getting clippings and building a reputation. So far, I have had a lot of success on fiverr. After completing six or so gigs, I still haven’t been able to successfully get started on any of the sites in the next tier (Elance, PeoplePerHour, Odesk, etc). What is a reasonable timeline for switching from one to the other? I wonder if I’m rushing off of Fiverr before I build enough of a portfolio.


    1. Hi Michael. It sounds like you’ve already started to build a good foundation as a writer. It’s less to do with a particular timeline and more to do with knowing when to quit building a portfolio and start pitching for work. It can be difficult to get quality work on freelancing sites because there are so many writers willing to work for less than what they’re worth unfortunately. If you’ve had no luck on these sites it may be more down to this than anything else. My advice? If you’ve completed six pieces of work on Fiverr then you now have enough to approach clients directly and go at it from that angle. It’s just a case of finding a website or publication that you know would benefit from your writing skills and pitching to them directly via email. If you’re interested I cover exactly the best way to approach this, including an email template you can use, in my new course:

      All the very best!
