Earn money as an online content writer
You can become a professional freelance writer - once you know the secrets I will teach you
This is for every freelance writer who wants to write full-time but can't find enough work to keep the lights on.
Hi, I’m Kit Sadgrove and I'm a professional writer who has helped hundreds of people around the world get paid to write articles, books and blog posts - so they can live the life they always wanted.
I'm here to tell you the TRUTH you need to know about being a paid writer!
In fact, here's the biggest problem you face right now.
1. You want to be an online content writer, but you haven't a lot of experience.
2. You're finding it hard to win work.
But that's not the end of the problem. It gets worse!
Why? Because thousands of writers are fighting for the same jobs, every day. That makes it hard for you to find work writing content.
Most people give up and never make it past the phase of wanting to be a paid writer.
Which means you'll never experience the joy, freedom and profitability of being a freelance writer.
But luckily for you there's a solution to your problem
In my day job I've commissioned work from over 80 content writers in the last five years. And that means I've read proposals from thousands of writers.
And here's what I've discovered:
- 90% of writers have no idea how to offer their services. I take no pleasure in saying that.
- 5% manage to write a coherent proposal, but it doesn't inspire me.
- And of the remaining 5% that I hire, half don't do the work to my satisfaction.
Your chances of success are probably higher than that, because I'm a tough client.
And that makes me the best person to teach you how to succeed.
If you can satisfy me and my colleagues, you'll definitely succeed with normal clients who are less picky.
Take this course and you'll find out why you struggle to book writing gigs.
Here is what we know about most of our learners:
- They're applying for the wrong gigs, in the wrong places.
- They're looking for the wrong kinds of client.
- Their proposals are weak.
- They have a poor portfolio, or maybe not even created one.
- They're failing to maximise the revenue from your existing clients.
- They aren't doing the right kind of marketing.
And here's what you'll learn.
I'll show you how to shift your mindset. From applying for a million jobs that everyone is fighting for, to creating a small, super-charged portfolio and laser targeting secret opportunities NOBODY knows about!
I'll reveal how to shortcut the entire hiring process - by eliminating your competition altogether! Anyone who can read, write and use a computer can use this new way to be a paid writer and have the freedom to work anywhere in the world.
The plan is to start booking work the smart way (not the hard way).
We'll show you how to create a small portfolio of your best work. How to create a portfolio if you don;t have one. Then super-charge it with the secret writing process we uncovered. It not only impresses clients, it blows their SOCKS OFF! But don't stop there.
Then you'll use the little-known method I learnt to find jobs before the masses knew about them. It works FASTER than you could imagine.
You'll learn how to create jaw-dropping content for clients. Get 5-star reviews and even get monthly retainers.
Bottom line: In the end, you'll be able to do what you never thought was possible. You will finally quit your job. You'll get content writing work and have clients pay you to write their material.
All this is in our fail-proof course. Our process makes it push-button easy to create the writing career you always wanted.
It's the Diploma in Content Writing.
Armed with the skills we teach, you can book writing gigs FASTER without submitting a ton of applications and feeling like a failure.
You can write content that's so good, clients will refer you to their friends and work colleagues. And finally, you can start spending less time at work and more time at home. With your family. Doing what matters most.
And that's why I'm so excited to share this with you.
So, if you're a freelance writer who really needs to write full-time, but can't score enough writing jobs, it's the solution you've been looking for.
Here's how it will help you:
- Establish credibility instantly as a writer so you can book the best writing gigs on the web!...

Course review by Angie.
One of my Dad’s favourite sayings is ‘You are never too old to learn.’ I was thrilled to be asked to review a course run by the Blackford Centre.
The course I chose to do was the Content Writing Course. Being a blogger and reviewer, I am hoping this will give me some additional ideas and strategies to use in my writing.
At the end of each module is a reminder of the exercises/activities that you should have completed, and also a summary of what you have learnt during that module.
So far, I am loving doing this course and it is teaching me how, when i have completed it, I can go ahead and make a career out of something I really enjoy doing – Writing.
