Because I've been where you are.
I know how it feels to sit on the sidelines, hoping your big break in the online world is just around the corner.
I've tried putting all the pressure on my blog to make me money. I've dabbled with taking surveys online for extra cash...
And, oh yes, I've even been tempted to throw in the towel and take that 9-5 out of pure desperation to start making money online.
With this approach, you won't spend hours marketing yourself, because unless you want to, creating your own website is unnecessary.
Say buh-bye to cold pitching clients, and say hello to chatting with clients who are actively seeking talented writers, just like you.
Take a weekend to set up your Upwork profile, and start pitching clients ASAP. I'll show you exactly how.
When I started freelancing, I had never been paid to write online. Ever. I made $453 in my first month, and so can you.
One of the biggest objections people have to my freelancing approach is my use of Upwork.
And I'll be upfront: Upwork is often viewed as an unnecessary platform that takes away from aspiring freelancers.
For me, though, that's never been case. I strongly believe that Upwork is the best platform to build an online business on.
Because, while yes, there are certainly some jobs on Upwork that aren't worth your time, there also just as many that are tailor made for your unique skills. And I'm going to show you exactly how to find those tailor made jobs, so that you can use this mighty platform strategically.
Once you start implementing my strategies, you'll quickly understand the appeal of Upwork.
At first, I was skeptical about using Upwork, but after finding Andrea's ebook, I decided to give it a go, and I'm SO glad I did. Whether you want to freelance full-time or just on the side, the advice in this ebook will apply to you. Plus, all the information is presented in a way that's extremely easy to follow and implement. I got a job within the first week of using Andrea's advice, and from there, I've only been able to grow in my position as a remote worker. I'm so thankful that I'm able to work from home full-time, and I know that the information presented in this ebook is what helped get me there.

Andrea Spanik // Author
Obsessed with the idea of working remotely, in the summer of 2016, I committed myself to figuring out how I could work from home, travel, and build my own business.
It wasn't easy, and it didn't happen over night, but with some trial and error, I came up with a strategy that allows me to plan my work around my life, instead of the other way around.
And boy, am I grateful! These days, I spend my days working from home with my pups at my feet, cafe hopping across my city, and travelling the world.
Now I want to share this lifestyle with more of you, so you can experience the same sort of freedom.
It's possible. Promise.
Andrea is an exceptional freelancer who provides high quality work and is very easy to work with.
Andrea is highly skilled writer. She wrote several articles for my blog and the results were great. Always on time and she made communication very easy. I'm closing this contract but I will re-hire her again very soon. Highly recommended! Thank you Andrea!!
I had a great experience working with Andrea to develop a go-to-market strategy for our lifestyle brand. She had a lot of advanced insight into the best ways to grow our audience with effectiveness. The framework and structure she helped us develop is a core foundation for our activities moving forward. It was a great experience and look forward to more collaboration in the future.
You can keep trying various methods to building an online business, or you can try something that I know works. Remember, I've been where you are.

I want anyone who wants to make money online to have access to this resource.
If you're that somebody, today is your day! Give Freelance Writing Simplified a try, and be sure to let me know what you think. I can't wait to hear all about your success.
MONEY BACK GUARANTEE
I wrote this book with the sole intention to provide value. If you get through the book, and you find no value in it, simply email me and I'll offer a full refund. No questions asked. Your satisfaction with this ebook is the most important thing to me.
Everybody has to start somewhere. Remember, when I started freelancing, I had never been paid to write online. You can absolutely build a freelance writing career without experience. You just have to know how to do it strategically, and I'm going to show you exactly how to do that :)
Definitely not. There are many ways to go about freelancing. This is just the way that has worked best for me. With that in mind, if you're someone who wants to start making money ASAP, and who wants to skip all the pesky marketing tactics that typically go along with building an online business, this is a method that I suggest checking out.
I consider my method to freelance writing "simple," because you don't have to build a website or do any traditional marketing. Instead, you can utilize the power of Upwork and start working with clients ASAP. This doesn't mean my method is a "get rich fast" scheme, but it is a method that simplifies the whole process so you can focus on what matters in your business.
Yes, there is. It's important to be aware that not everyone who applies to use Upwork is approved. Having said that, I have a full chapter in my ebook that addresses this issue, with specific (proven!) advice that will help get your Upwork profile approved.
Absolutely! If you get through this ebook, and you find absolutely no value in it, simply email me to let me know. I'll offer you a refund, no questions asked.
