Products and Services to Grow Your Freelance Writing Business


Looking to build an email list? I highly recommend Aweber. As someone who’s tried several email marketing solutions in the past, I have to say, nothing compares to their level of user-friendliness and customer service.



Building your website? Consider Bluehost for your web hosting needs. The service is very easy to use and set up and I’ve had very little issues when it comes to site speed and availabitlity.

    Hi Francesca,

    I clicked on the link for 25 Types of Writing Gigs that Pay Well (and how to find them), but it’s giving me ‘404 Not Found’ error.

    I’m a newbie here so, if you have already taken it down, then sadly, i guess that’s my loss. But, if not could you please look into it.
