Product: Writing to Wealth
Price: $34, discounted to $12
Verdict: Product gives you access to a database of freelance writing jobs, some average tools, and a getting started guide. Some may find it is worth it for the $12, but you don’t need this product to find writing jobs and gain experience.
What is Writing to Wealth?
This product is really nothing new or groundbreaking, and I will explain why within this Writing to Wealth review. While it provides some basic information on finding paid writing jobs (including a database) and bundles in some articles and tools, it’s also completely over-hyped.
It kind of reminds me of other products I’ve reviewed like Legit Writing Jobs or Real Writing Jobs, (neither which even exist anymore) imagine that? It’s not quite as terrible as those because at least this one you can legit grab for just $12. Keep in mind, however, that there are unmentioned upsells after you purchase the product.
What does Writing to Wealth include?
- Access to a database of freelance writing jobs
- Step-by-step getting started guide
- Various articles, tips and “other ways to earn” money freelancing and online in general
- Writing tools including an automatic article writer, WriteSparks! Software, MaxType Lite Typing, The Writer’s Best Friend, plus more.
It claims it gives you nearly $4,000 in free tools, but these are tools that you can download for free with a Google search.
Assuming you get the discount and grab the product for $12 (which can be done by trying to click away from the product page) you’re getting some value for the money but it’s really not much that can’t be found for free.
Do you need to purchase Writing to Wealth to find writing gigs?
Something I find a bit deceiving about this product is they almost make it seem like if you purchase the product, you’ll automatically be able to claim jobs and start making money freelance writing. They also make it appear you need to buy the product to even find the jobs in the first place. Neither is true – you don’t need to buy this to get started freelance writing, and buying it won’t automatically land you a job!
There are tons of companies and blog owners that are looking for people to help them write articles for their websites, and many of them post their writing gigs on public freelance sites, like Upwork.com or Fiverr (among others). Anyone can easily create accounts on various freelancing websites and start work there, but it’s competitive and there are many well-established freelancers that get the better paying work. As a beginner (and this also depends on your writing skill) you’ll probably struggle to find jobs and the ones you get will be extremely low-paying (like a $5 article on Fiverr).
Not everyone will really be able to find a place within the freelance writing field, but if you enjoy it and are good at it, you can definitely make money.
How much can you make?
Writing to Wealth boldly claims “if you’re not making at least $100 per day, then the only excuse you have is you’re turning down too many writing jobs”. This is a bit deceiving as it implies you’ll be getting tons of job offers each day. As a beginner, you’ll have to work hard to advertise yourself and apply to job postings to even find any work at all. Even if you did get offers, usually these gigs are low-paying.
Established freelancers can make a living in the field, but not everyone has the skill to make that happen. High profile freelancers can easily charge $50 – $75 per hour for their writing services.
Verdict: Is Writing to Wealth worth it?
Simply put, this product is shallow, superficial. It lures people in on the idea they can make big money writing online, but it just simply doesn’t deliver. It lacks quality information on teaching people how to actually do it (and do it well).
In order to be successful freelancing, you need to understand how to actually write for the web, have an understanding of your audience, keywords and SEO. If you’re looking to gain some of these skills, I recommend you check out this program as it gives you a solid understanding of all these things. You’ll actually be creating your own website and writing your own articles, but it’s a great way to practice the skills and gain a better understanding of what the people that hire you are actually looking for. And hey, maybe you’ll decide writing gigs aren’t for you and you’d rather be a blog owner instead! Either way, it’s worth checking out.
