Start a Successful Freelance Web Writing Career with New Web Writer’s Guide E-book Series


The first in a new e-book series designed to help Web writers start and manage a successful freelance career has been launched at The 100-page e-book, the Web Writer’s Guide to Launching a Successful Freelance Web Writing Career, was written by Jennifer Mattern – freelance business writer, blogger, and Web content writer.


Philadelphia, PA - October 13, 2008 - A career in freelance writing is a dream for many, and the Web makes it easier than ever to get started. Partly because of this ease of entry, it isn’t uncommon for freelance writers specializing in Web writing to be stereotyped – these gigs are often assumed to be all (or mostly) low-paying, and often of low-quality. Professional Web-based writers know this couldn’t be further from the truth, and it’s one of the myths Jennifer Mattern’s new e-book, the Web Writer’s Guide to Launching a Successful Freelance Web Writing Career ( aims to tackle.

“Some of the misinformation about working as a Web writer is just astounding,” says Mattern. “On one hand there are people telling new writers that no one wants to pay serious money for Web writing, so it’s almost impossible to make a full-time career of it. On the other hand, those same writers are being told that Web writing is easy and supposedly anyone can do it – meaning there’s so much competition they shouldn’t even bother trying. Fortunately for those serious about starting a career as a freelance Web writer, neither of those things is true"

The first in the Web Writer’s Guide e-book series is a 100-page e-book that Mattern describes as a “no-fluff” product – “This isn’t an e-book filled with large clipart, huge font sizes, or filler information,” she says. In addition to teaching new freelance Web writers how to effectively set their rates, build a network to take advantage of unadvertised writing jobs, and build a portfolio even with no experience, the e-book includes 13 templates and worksheets and a series of action steps readers can follow at the end of each section.

The e-book sells for $37, and includes three bonus products – all custom-created by the author and not available anywhere else. The bonuses include a 30-Day Get-Started Guide, 12-Month Marketing Calendar, and a Web Writer’s “Cheat Sheet” with basic Web writing style and HTML reminders.

Mattern has released a free preview of the e-book, including the table of contents, an excerpt, and a sample from the included templates and worksheets. These sneak peek materials can be accessed from the e-book’s product page at
