The web needs talented writers. So why is it (sometimes) so hard for the best writers to get paid what they’re worth?
There are so many really good writers out there who are thiiiis close to making a great living — they just need to add a couple of readily-learnable skills.
In this 15-minute episode, I talk about:
- Why clients will actually “pay for poetry,” if they understand why they’re doing it
- The crucial insight that anyone in the 21st century needs to understand in order to succeed
- The difference between learning art and learning strategy (you can do both)
- How structures can make any kind of writing more effective
- Getting over the idea that marketing is icky
