For a couple years I've played with the idea of starting a YouTube channel dedicated to freelancing and copywriting. 

Well, here goes nothing: Last week I launched my first video, with more planned for the near future. If you want to receive regular advice about freelancing, copywriting, and growing a one-person business, please subscribe.

Oh, and let me know what topics you'd like me to cover. I'm new to this medium and want to offer as much value as possible. 

Freelance strategy

Where do you find freelance writing jobs?

Websites like Upwork and Fiverr are powerful platforms for starting your career as a freelance writer. But they can also hold you back from commanding high freelance rates and growing your writing business.

The problem comes down to supply and demand. Upwork and Fiverr are some of the most popular freelance platforms in the world. They attract writing talent at all levels, from across the world.

If you’ve spent any time on these platforms, you know it’s common to find yourself competing for projects against 20–50 other freelancers. Fortunately, you don't have to rely on Upwork or Fiverr to maintain a freelance business.

Writing and publishing

Next time you write copy, try to run your sentences through this simple question:

Does my copy sound like it was written by a business or by a customer?

If it sounds like a business wrote your copy, it's time to rework. If it sounds like a customer wrote your copy, you may be onto something.
