A Personal Message from Nancy Flynn

A Personal Message from Nancy Flynn How would you like to spend your days doing the work you love (writing) and generate a six-figure income in the process? If this sounds like an impossible dream, chances are you still are struggling to find your way out of freelance poverty, and you are not alone. According to a National Writers Union survey, the median income of experienced freelance writers is $4,000 a year, with only 16% of writers generating $30,000 annually. And let's face it, $30,000 isn't going to buy anyone a particularly comfortable lifestyle today.

It's been my experience that writers often remain in the shallow end of the income pool not for lack of training or talent, but because of limited thinking. Eager to publish, many freelance writers focus almost exclusively on the highly competitive consumer magazine market. Bad choice. Fact is, you can make significantly more money, more quickly by selling business copy and business-related writing products to eager corporate clients.

The $100,000 Writer

Know Nothing About Writing Business Content or Working with Corporate Clients? No Problem. The $100,000 Writer Takes You Step-by-Step Through the Process of Building a $100,000-a-Year Writing Business.

Since opening my doors for business in 1988, I've generated millions of dollars in sales as a business writer and writing coach. By following the steps outlined in The $100,000 Writer, you too can achieve a writing income beyond your wildest dreams.

Let me assure you that I am neither the most talented writer working in America, nor am I the product of an Ivy League business school education. What I am is an experienced business writer who has been lucky enough to write for just about every type of client imaginable. I've produced content for Fortune 500 companies, Hollywood celebrities, politicians, name-brand products, tech giants, lawyers, accountants, small businesses, entrepreneurs, mom-and-pop shops, government entities, associations, and nonprofit groups. I'm one of those rare individuals who actually loves what I do for a living, and I generate a six-figure income doing it.

I challenge you to close your eyes and visualize just how satisfying your life would be if you were able to do what you love (write), and make $100,000 doing it! That dream is within your grasp, if you are willing to adhere to the plan I outline in The $100,000 Writer. Don't wait another minute. BUY NOW.

Seven Common Mistakes that Keep Writers in the Poorhouse

  1. Selling to the wrong person. If you want to achieve financial success as a writer, you must stop selling your work to magazine editors. Focus instead on selling content to corporate clients with deep pockets and an ongoing need for business writing. See Chapter 9 for detailed instructions on locating clients, selling your services, negotiating fees, and maximizing the profit potential of every sale.
  2. Underpricing your services and products. It's tough to set fees for writing services. A lack of industry pricing standards is one problem. The fact that there's always another writer out there, willing to undercut your fees, poses another problem. Chapter 8 reveals six-figure strategies for establishing and holding to fees.
  3. Accepting low-paying, one-time assignments. Why write a nickel-a-word magazine article when you can get paid $10,000 to write a corporate annual report? Read Part 3,and then follow the money!
  4. Failing to develop products. The only way to make big money in business writing is to stop thinking of yourself strictly as a service provider. Expand your vision to include product delivery. See Chapter 12 to learn how to create, package, sell, and resell writing products clients gladly will pay top-dollar for.
  5. Waiting for business to come to you. You'll never become a six-figure writer until you learn how to create new business opportunities, not merely respond to requests for service. See Chapter 4 for insights into finding and filling holes in the marketplace.
  6. Underestimating the power of packaging, publicity, and promotion. While most writers know how to approach magazine editors, they don't necessarily know how to sell themselves to the corporate marketplace. See Chapters 16, 18, and 19 to learn what it takes to position yourself as a big-league business writer who commands major-league money from corporations, associations, government entities, and others.
  7. Neglecting clients. Six-figure writing success rests less on writing talent than on your capacity to embrace the business side of the writing business. Read Chapter 37, then commit to make superior client service a hallmark of your writing business.
