Can you get paid writing online?

Published 15 days ago • 1 min read

Hi Reader,

I’d a few coaching calls with several writers this month.

They all wanted to get started writing online.

I love working with writers who’ve something to say online.

In some ways…

Writing online is easier than ever. So many great places to try:

X

Substack

Quora

Medium

LinkedIn

And yet, in other ways, writing online is harder than ever.

In the beginning…

It’s hard to gain traction on any one platform.

And some of these platforms are full of crap, mass-produced AI content (ahem… X!)

So, standing out is tough.

That’s before factoring in the time to write and publish every day.

So what should you do?

I could offer you advice about headlines, writing templates, and writing tools.

Time is short.

The one platform that’s crushing it now?

LinkedIn.

LinkedIn isn’t just for bragging about promotions, hires, or looking for work.

LinkedIn WANTS users to create and publish more content.

But, fewer than 5% of LinkedIn users publish regularly.

If you turn up and write helpful content, you’re in the top 5%.

You’ll find more readers and paying clients faster than any other network.

I’ve done.

So have hundreds of other writers.

Give it a try.

Write on,
Bryan Collins

P.S. If you want to earn $3-5k a month writing, I’m working with a cohort of writers. Details below.

Hi Reader, I quit two different jobs to write full-time. In my mid-twenties, I worked as a badly paid local newsletter journalist. I hated my power-hungry boss and dreary afternoons covering local council meetings. So, one Tuesday morning, I marched into my boss’s office and said, “I quit!” I was going to become a freelance writer and write fiction. Saying “I quit!” to write full-time? My dream turned into a stressful nightmare. I didn’t consider if I could actually write fiction, much less...

Hi Reader, I started writing online over ten years ago. I’ve earned multiple six figures from writing online. I’ve also worked harder and longer than I’d like to admit. And I’ve the hairline to prove it. Here are a few things I’ve tried: Writing on Tumblr Reviewing products and gadgets for tech websites Freelancing for big-name publications like Forbes Copywriting and content writing for clients Self-publishing books on Amazon Tweeting and writing threads on X Writing personal development...

Hi Reader, I wasted half an hour reading a fun subreddit over coffee the other morning. /LinkedInLunatics is full of posts from keyboard-warrior Redditors sharing cringe-worthy LinkedIn posts. One Redditor surfaced a LinkedIn post from a laid-off Tesla product supervisor. Nico posted on LinkedIn saying, “Tesla eliminated my position, I’m going to eliminate my housing costs lol.” Nico plans to invest his savings in the S&P500 and document living in his car online. “I already lived in my car...
