Do You Need a Website for Your Freelance Writing Business? (Video)

I get a lot of emails from brand new freelance writers or those interested in learning to become a freelance writer.

And you know what I tell them? Yes…..and no 🙂

Do You Need a Website for Your Freelance Writing Business? (Video)

See, it’s possible to get started without a website, but it’s practically impossible to make a living as a freelance writer without a website.

Having a writer website can help:

  • attract the right type of client
  • attract high-paying clients
  • define your niche
  • market your service
  • grow your brand
  • grow your business
  • help you grow your income by monetizing your blog
  • and much more!

*Make sure to check out my super simple (tech-free) step-by-step tutorial (with video) on how to start a blog for your business.

To see the tips I have for both sides (having no website and having a website), check out my video! I would also love it if you subscribed to my YouTube Channel.


  • To be truly successful as a freelance writer, you need a website
  • To quickly get started, you only need a place to house your portfolio
  • If you have a blog, you can market your freelance writing service
