Date & Time: April 2nd, 1:00 p.m. EDT

Webinar Details

Earning a living in freelance journalism alone is getting more difficult (especially in the print world), and it’s a constant exercise in trading your time for money. That said, earning a full-time living blogging is challenging and volatile with ever-changing algorithms and huge competition.

What if you could have the best of both worlds, and leverage one to excel at the other, creating a momentum leading to multiple streams of income and increased revenue?

This webinar will show you how freelance writing and blogging are complementary career skills, and how to make the most of them, create multiple streams of income and a demand for your work, and make a name for yourself.

Key Takeaways

* Strategies for selecting and developing separate niches to cross-pollinate so you're not "just another travel writer"

* How to negotiate a freelance writing gig that not only pays well, but provides backlinks to your blog (and why that’s important) and sometimes affiliate income

* What to put on our blog and social media to create demand for your freelance writing

* How to create multiple streams of revenue, and how it all ties in together

*   How to make yourself a top candidate for press trips
