Day 24 – the launch of WriteWorldwide – the go-to resource for freelance writers who use English as a second language.
I’ve talked a lot about how I followed a strategy laid out by Bamidele Onibalusi to earn my first $1000 as a freelance writer. Bamidele created a pseudonym, followed a strategy, gave himself two months to achieve $1000 and in the process shared everything with those who followed. He also created a Facebook group, which is 2000 members strong.
That Facebook group was instrumental in helping others (like me) achieve the goal. People shared success stories, tips, and resources to help each other. People who asked for advice received it. This sense of helping one another succeed continues as I write this.
But the group goes beyond being a resource to help people become freelance writers. Amazing connections have, and no doubt will continue to be made, amongst freelance writers from all over the world. It is in this group that I connected with four other freelance writers. Richard Rowlands, Ciaran Gilligan, Yassir Sahnoun and myself noticed pain point and struggles experienced by all writers, especially those who use English as a second language (ESL writer’s).
So, we decided to create a resource catering to this group. After months of collaboration, Skype calls, interactions on Slack (great tool for remote teams) jokes, laughs and brainstorming we’re pre-launching WriteWorldwide (the go-to resource for freelance writer’s who use English as a second language).
In the months that follow we’ll provide bucket loads of free and actionable content to help people become freelance writers and advance their writing careers. We’ll also be interviewing top freelancers and sharing templates you can use to land clients.
We’re officially launching on March 1st, but have some giveaways for early subscribers like eBooks from top freelance writers Carol Tice and Bamidele Onibalusi and one-hour free consultation with the WriteWorldwide team. All new subscribers will also receive an e-mail series to help them land their first writing gig, and 30% off one month of language tuition from our friends at Rype.
