Do you want to earn $100k per year? $200k per year? $300k per year – or more? It’s all possible, according to a recent article where the author interviewed freelancers to spill their secrets about how they built their businesses and how long it took to arrive at those figures.
The article featured Michael Keenan, a freelancer based in Mexico, earning $400k after his sixth year. He admitted that you don’t earn big just from writing average content. He explained that you need to continually improve your writing skills and subject expertise – so you can charge more.
The article also featured Bani Kaur, a writer based in India, who hit the $100k mark after freelancing full-time for 14 months.
As you work to increase earnings, you might wonder: How much should a freelance writer charge anyway?
