I'm Bamidele Onibalusi, founder of the popular Writers in Charge blog and a freelance writer with 10 years of experience.
Huffington Post calls me an "ultimate business success story," and I've been recognized by Fast Company, Forbes, Digital Journal, and several of the world's biggest publications.
Earning four figures and five figures monthly as a freelance writer is routine for me, but more important is the fact that I've been able to successfully train thousands of freelance writers from all over the world to do just the same.
A few years ago in 2016, I decided to do something very bold and daring:
I adopted a pseudonym, and, without using my existing platform, connections, and resources, I attempted to go from earning ZERO to $1,000 monthly as a freelance writer within two months.
I was doing pretty fine as a freelance writer at this particular period -- regularly earning five figures monthly -- and I had one of the most popular writing blogs in the world with tens of thousands of subscribers. Yet, I announced my interest to "start from scratch" as a freelance writer on my blog.
Thousands of people eagerly followed, and everybody paid careful attention to see if I'll succeed or fail -- and to see how long it will take should I succeed.
I did succeed, however, earning exactly $2,480 in freelance writing income in 37 days of starting the challenge.
More importantly: hundreds of people who followed along with the challenge recorded successes during this period; getting their first clients, earning their first $1,000, and going on to build thriving freelance writing businesses.
Here's what Nick Darlington, one of those who followed along during the challenge and achieved success had to say:
Nick Darlington is not alone.
Richard Rhys Rowlands also followed the challenge in 2016, earn his first $1,000 (and much more!), and quit his job:
I still remember very clearly how happy and joyous I was when Richard told me he had quit his job in July 2017. That was less than a year after he participated in the challenge.
You can see the message he sent for yourself:
You can also hear from Tolulope Ajiboye, a lawyer who decided to become a freelance writer (in the health niche!) after participating in the Earn Your First $1,000 as a Freelance Writer challenge.
Tolulope is an accomplished writer who has been featured in top publications including Entrepreneur, The Guardian, and Health.com. Here's what she thinks about my Earn Your First $1,000 as a Freelance Writer methods:
Or maybe like Amos Onwukwe you'd just like to work in your boxers -- at a time of your choosing:
I know being able to work in your boxers (if you so choose!) might not be a big deal to you, but it is to Amos whose ex-boss has always been particular about how he dressed.
Thanks to coming across my Earn Your First $1,000 as a Freelance Writer challenge, Amos was able to fire his boss and now routinely earns four figures monthly as a freelance writer and lives his dream lifestyle.
Like Amos, you might not be particular about being able to work in your boxers whenever and wherever you want to...
Like Richard, you might not be desperate about quitting your job...
Like Nick, you might not be particular about earning enough to live a lifestyle dream...
And, like Tolulope, you might not be a lawyer who chooses to earn a living writing about healthcare just because you can...
However, you most probably have a reason why you desperately need to earn a good living as a freelance writer.
Perhaps you want to have enough time to spend with your family and your kids.
Perhaps you simply want to live a comfortable life and never have to worry about money again.
Perhaps you are a stay at home mom who wants to be able to support at home without relying on your spouse for income.
Perhaps you're unemployed and feel that being a freelance writer is the best way to earn a living.
Perhaps you want and additional stream of income that you can invest and save in preparation for the hard times.
Perhaps you want to choose where you work, when you work, or how you work.
Perhaps you're afraid of what many believe to be a looming recession and want to take charge of your future before what -- for many -- will be an inevitable lay-off.
Regardless of your reason, as long as you're a beginner freelance writer who needs a proven step-by-step system that you can follow to earn your first $1,000 in freelance writing income, the Earn Your First $1,000 as a Freelance Writer course is for you.
Even if you've never worked as a freelance writer before, provided you can write well, have enough time to invest, and can follow simple instructions, you'll get great results by following my Earn Your First $1,000 as a Freelance Writer Program.
More importantly, my system has been refined and is proven to work in 2020.
Nick, Richard, Tolulope, and Amos joined my Earn Your First $1,000 as a Freelance Writer challenge in 2016 and have built upon what they learned to have an even successful freelance writing business -- with many of them now routinely earning $2,000, $5,000, and more monthly from their freelance writing business.
All the above video testimonials they recorded about my methods was recorded in 2020.
In other to ensure the Earn Your First $1,000 as a Freelance Writer Program is the most proven program for beginner freelance writers willing to earn their first $1,000, I decided to re-validate the techniques I plan to use in the program by personally implementing them early 2020 before the launch of the program.
The result was that I closed freelance writing projects worth five figures in less than two months.
Now, you can have my methods all to yourself.
You can see what several other people who participated in the Earn Your First $1,000 as a Freelance Writer challenge have to say about the results they got:

Here are some frequently asked questions about the Earn Your First $1,000 as a Freelance Writer program:
What is the Earn Your First $1,000 as a Freelance Writer course?
The Earn Your First $1,000 as a Freelance Writer course is my methodical approach to helping beginner freelance writers earn their first $1,000 and get to a stage where they can be earning four figures monthly by offering writing services.
It is essentially a system for building a thriving freelance writing business and is divided into eight different modules aimed at helping you earn your first $1,000 as a freelance writer in two months or less.
Why should I buy the Earn Your First $1,000 as a Freelance Writer course?
You should buy the course because it is the most proven system beginner freelance writers can follow to earn their first $1,000 and have a consistent four figure monthly income.
My promise to you is this: if you sign up for the course, you’ll get to that point within 2 months. Possibly much sooner!
The Earn Your First $1,000 as a Freelance Writer course also seems to be the most affordable right now; and it is intentionally designed to be affordable to freelance writers regardless of where they are in the world.
Why is your Earn Your First $1,000 as a Freelance Writer course the most proven system for beginner freelance writers?
When this system was first introduced in 2016, I put my entire career and reputation on the line by publicly announcing a challenge with the aim of starting from scratch as a beginner freelance writer (using a pseudonym and not relying on my existing platform, connections, and resources) and earning $1,000 within two months.
I achieved this goal in 37 days (or about a month and a week), earning exactly $2,480 within this period.
More importantly, thousands of people followed publicly and many got amazing results and started earning their first $1,000. You’ll be seeing testimonials from some of these amazing people below.
The methods in this course were adapted from that challenge and re-validated for 2020. In fact, my recent experiment to re-validate the methods you’ll be learning in this course (as myself this time around, not using a pseudonym) in early 2020 to see if they still work resulted in me landing freelance writing deals worth five figures ($10,000+).
Other freelance writing experts have launched courses with the same purpose, and many have several courses even, but -- to my knowledge -- not a single of these experts have put their career on the line by pretending to be a beginner (not using their name and existing resources) and having thousands of people follow them (many of whom also got results using those methods) in order to show that their methods work; not before I did the Earn Your First $1,000 as a Freelance Writer challenge in 2016 and certainly not after (I’m writing this in 2020)!
What format is the Earn Your First $1,000 as a Freelance Writer course?
The Earn Your First $1,000 as a Freelance Writer course is purely in text format; this is because careful analysis of my audience has shown a preference for learning through this method.
As such, there are no videos or audios.
What you get is eight modules of pure, instructional content in PDF format.
Each module comes in the form of a PDF course lesson and most modules end with a “WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO TODAY” section that tells you exactly what you should do immediately after reading the PDF lesson.
You’re then given checklists, spreadsheets, templates, and other resources you can take advantage of to take action on the content of each module.
Lessons are spaced a day apart (and two days apart for some of the lessons). This is intentionally designed to allow you enough time to act on the lessons of a particular module before going to the next.
Remember, the goal isn’t just to have you buy this course; the goal is to have you take action and get results. As such, the course materials and delivery is designed to ensure you do just that!
That said, the course format and nature could change in the future if there is enough feedback to prompt that. Regardless, if you purchase the course now you will ALWAYS have free access to it for as long as it exists and receive all future updates and new content at no additional cost regardless of how much the course price increases.
How much does the Earn Your First $1,000 as a Freelance Writer course cost?
I know a guru who isn’t an active freelancer who sells a program aimed at helping freelancers earn their first $1,000 for approximately that amount (about $999).
Many freelance writing teachers and experts also run similar programs and sell them for several hundred dollars -- despite not having a system as proven as the one in the Earn Your First $1,000 as a Freelance Writer course.
Rest assured, the Earn Your First $1,000 as a Freelance Writer course costs just $149 for the basic package that includes training materials (in form of PDF documents), scripts/templates, checklists, spreadsheets, and all necessary resources plus support (in case you have questions or need help when you get stuck).
The $149 cost is an introductory price for people who quickly enroll in the course as soon as it launches, and it will certainly be going up in the near future!
However, there is going to be an Early Bird discount for the first set of buyers so you’re likely to get in at a much reduced price -- if you act fast, of course!
There is also an advanced package for you if you want more personalized guidance; this includes everything in the basic package PLUS personalized guidance from me; if you take advantage of this offer you will have access to me on Skype so that you can use Skype to get me to answer your queries. I’ll be reviewing your first few guest post pitches, cold pitches, target prospect list, writer website, and offering personalized feedback and suggestions. In other words, I’ll be with you every step of the way.
This costs quite more compared to the basic package. If you take advantage of this and are not earning your first $1,000 within two months, then you most likely aren’t cut out to be a freelance writer. I don’t see any way you can fail with the advanced package!
The advanced package costs $999, and the main component is the personalized guidance and support buyers of this package will get from me.
If you act fast and join immediately after course launch, however, you can get in for just $499.
This price will CERTAINLY be going up in the near future, or I could potentially discontinue the package; besides being a very successful freelance writer, I run one of the top blogs for freelance writers as well as a farm that employs almost 30 people. I do this full time and certainly don’t have a lot of time, so this isn’t something that is scalable for me unless the price really goes up. It is a value investment.
Is there a refund policy?
People who know me know that I’m not one to create products just to make money; I first introduced the Earn Your First $1,000 as a Freelance Writer concept in 2016 via a publicly available challenge and had thousands of people follow along -- hundreds of whom got results, with many going on to earn their first $1,000, $2,000, $5,000, and more as freelance writers.
If I’m all about money (rather than your success), I’d have launched a course there and then and milked it for all it is worth; instead, I waited four years (mostly because I’m just too busy with other money making endeavors).
So, certainly, my motivation for this isn’t to earn; it is to help you succeed and get to your first $1,000.
If for some reason you follow the process in the course (using the spreadsheets, checklists, templates, and resources) and don’t feel as if you are making progress, then, yes, I’d be happy to refund your money.
This course is backed by my standard 30-day money back guarantee that comes with anything I launch.
Why should I buy your course now instead of saving my money?
Of course, we have the coronavirus pandemic that has destabilized the world, serious instability in the oil market (which affects most of the world’s economy), and it’s a U.S. election year. In other words, a lot of signals point to a recession looming.
Yet, I believe that this is the BEST time ever to be a freelance writer:
Thanks to the coronavirus, companies are now more focused on their people working remotely than ever before -- during or after the coronavirus pandemic, companies will invest more in hiring freelance and remote workers.
If a recession ever happens, there will be layoffs and many companies will try to scale down hiring as much as they can in favor of (guess what!) freelancers! This is because they don’t have to worry about the additional overheads (healthcare, pensions, etc) that comes with having employees when it comes to freelancers.
Also, many employees who get laid off will start small businesses that mostly can’t afford full-time employees but that can certainly afford freelancers.
Since most of the world economy is heavily dependent on oil, unstable oil prices are already destabilizing a lot of economies, propping up local currencies. This means the dollar is actually worth a lot more than it used to be (and it will continue to be!). In other words, this is the best time to earn in dollars; your income will certainly become a lot more valuable when exchanged to your local currency.
I’m not in the U.S. and I’m not a native-English speaker, can I still earn from freelance writing?
To this, I have only one thing to say: welcome aboard!
You are not alone. I’m not a native-English speaker, but that certainly hasn’t stopped me from regularly earning four figures and five figures monthly over the years. It also hasn’t stopped me from running one of the most popular blogs for writers in the world.
Your location or background DOESN’T matter. You only have to be able to write and follow my instructions and use the resources I provide.
You can either go it by yourself using the basic package or have more guided support with the advanced package. Both will ensure success, but the advanced package allows you to have more personal guidance from me
