Meet Your Freelance Writing Coach – Arfa Saira Iqbal
As an award-winning copywriter, digital marketing consultant and published author, my primary focus is on helping business owners increase their sales and revenue by converting more clicks to customers.
I’ve sold everything from fitness and weight-loss products, herbal coffee to honey, information products, matrimonial services, subscription services and everything in between.
Collectively, I’ve made my clients more than 7 figures and have worked with non-profits, agencies and entrepreneurs, as well as internet marketers and other businesses in a range of industries.
However, it wasn't always like this though!
When I first started freelancing in March 2010, I was struggling and making measly amounts of money because I was focusing my efforts on low-paying writing gigs and entering endless competitions online.
My personal situation was such that I had no choice but to focus and write where the money was – and that was in commercial freelance writing.
Commercial freelance writing gave me my life back and something worthwhile to do after having children.
I worked from home around my children, and meant that I had good money coming in, a good client base and more importantly, time for my kids.
In the years since, I’ve progressed to direct response copywriting (salesmanship in print) and consulting with 6 and 7 figure businesses.
As a single parent, freelancing has given me the kind of financial freedom and the kind of life I never thought possible. I still work from home and I get to travel and work on my own terms with no boss :)
Freelancing has opened so many incredible opportunities for me and I know it will do the same for you! Not only do I LOVE what I do, but I have amazing clients and nothing fills me with joy more than seeing them succeed.
During my journey, I’ve met countless individuals who are sick and tired of the rat race and fed up of scraping by. They hate their jobs and are looking for alternative income streams which pay well and give them a flexible lifestyle. I've also meant many writers and aspiring writers who falsely believe that the only way they can make money is by getting published or working for some big magazine.
And that's absolutely NOT true!
As a commercial freelance writer, you can regularly earn between £30 and £100/hr.
Over the years, many people have asked me to teach them everything I know about freelancing, and this course is a culmination of 8 years of experience in the field.
Starting your own freelance writing career and growing it as a business can seem like a daunting and difficult task when you don't know what to do or even where to begin.
As long as you have good writing skills and the dedication, commitment and the desire to succeed, you can create a fantastic career for yourself as a freelance writer. This is not about making a quick buck, but rather it’s a profitable way to leverage your writing skills and become the ‘go to’ person in your local area.
And the best part?
There is virtually zero competition in your locality, no danger of saturation and more importantly, more than enough work to keep you busy for a lifetime - guaranteed.
I'm living proof of that! And if I can do it as a single parent, so can YOU!
