Dear Writer:

Are you looking for a fast, easy way to start – or jump-start – your freelance writing career?

Well, now you can find it online at Elance.com.

Started just 8 years ago, Elance has rapidly grown to become the largest online marketplace for connecting freelancers in all fields with clients who need their services.

Currently, more than 800,000 freelancers and clients use Elance. They conduct an average of 1,700 projects every week through the Elance system.

But not every freelancer has equal success on Elance….

Some writers are continually frustrated in their efforts to land business on Elance.

They either lose all or most of their bids … or when they do get hired, it’s at a rock-bottom fee, often for difficult clients who are a pain in the rear.

Other freelance writers, on the other hand, make a handsome living from writing projects they get solely or mostly from Elance!

Of these Elance freelancers, Lindsay Zortman is one of the most successful….

When I found Lindsay on Elance – I regularly use Elance to hire writers for e-books and other editorial projects – I was blown away by how well she was doing.

She told me that she has already made $15,474 writing for Elance buyers … and boasts a perfect customer satisfaction record from her Elance clients.

I was so impressed, that instead of having Lindsay do the e-book I had contacted her about, I instead hired her – on the spot – to write a freelance writer’s guide to Elance.com.

My instructions to Lindsay were simple….

“Just tell my subscribers exactly what you do to win so many jobs, complete so many projects, and make so much money in your freelance writing business on Elance.”

I also told her to tell us all the how-to details of her Elance secrets – and to hold nothing back.

And that’s just what Lindsay’s done in her new e-book….

Making Money as a Freelance Writer Through Elance

In just 52 tightly written pages, Lindsay Zortman lays bare her proven methods of bidding on jobs … promoting herself to Elance buyers … pricing … work agreements … getting repeat business … and more.

These writers are making thousands on Elance….

When I started using Elance to hire freelance writers for my small publishing company, I was truly amazed at how much money some of them are making:

  • LW, a freelance technical writer based in California, has made $54,919 on Elance to date.
  • A freelance editor in Tennessee, CL has logged $24,387 in freelance assignments generated through Elance.
  • In Ohio, freelance copywriter TL has added an extra $12,425 in revenues to her freelance writing business by bidding on Elance jobs.
  • CB is a screenwriter who supports himself with Elance writing projects while he waits for his big break in Hollywood. To date, he’s earned over $150,000 in writing revenues from Elance and other online sources.
  • And don’t forget VM, a former waitress who’s pocketed $26,017 in Elance freelance writing profits.

Now, you too can make thousands of dollars a month as a freelance writer – with more projects than you can handle – just by going on Elance!

"I was inspired by your e-book and it gave me the confidence I needed to plunge into Elance again with a more positive attitude and putting forth a more professional appearance," writes Mary Chris Hines, Auburn, CA. "The first month, I got two jobs. What a bump in pay!"

"Writing to thank you for the red hot tip about eLance.com. I turned in 12 bids yesterday and found 3 job offers in my inbox this morning. All three have continuing work after the first assignments are completed. Each job is article re-writing for the web. I had no clue there is such demand for this service. There is a fourth job too. I am on the short list for writing technical information for a company seeking a patent. Bob, I didn't have to show any work samples. It was my profile and my cover letter that made them say YES. I think you are the reason for this success in large part because of your dedication to the craft and the power of your training. Thanks for being in my corner!"
--Anthony Chavez
