Ready for real writing work that doesn't pay in pennies?
Even If You Aren't Sure Where To Start, Don't Feel Ready, Or Are Beginning To Feel Your Dream Of Being A Well-Paid Writer Will Never Happen
#FACT: You CAN get paid to write. Writing CAN pay the bills. You CAN find clients who adore your work (without getting trapped in a soul-crushing "Upwork" hustle...)
The secret? A strong portfolio that shows off your writing and does the selling for you.
It's the chicken and the egg:
You can't get great writing work without samples, but how do you get samples if you don't have any high-quality writing work?
Picture yourself in the freelance writing life that so many of us know and love...
  • Having flexible income each month
  • Writing​ every day with confidence
  • Having people asking YOU to work with them
  • Picking only the clients you LOVE and passing on the rest 
  • ​Setting your own schedule and working on your own terms
  • ​Taking care of yourself and your family in ways you can only dream of right now
You can't get that dream writer's life
until you have a strong portfolio. 
When you don't have a portfolio, you get stuck in confusion and overwhelm...

...so you do another Pinterest search... 
...stay in information overload...
...make absolutely no real progress...
...look for the one magic thing to get you started...
...get distracted by some shiny new object... 
...watch even more wasted time pass...
...start feeling guilty...
...and maybe even second-guess the whole idea... 

...even though you know you want to be a freelance writer... because it's the fastest, most satisfying way to make a living out of words. 
Step 1: Your portfolio sells YOU
Your portfolio is your collection of writing samples. Just like a photographer has pictures and a designer has websites, you have your writing samples.

A solid portfolio is how you show potential clients that you can deliver what they want. Without that proof, they have no reason to hire you. Don't even bother trying.
step 2: start getting work
Your portfolio gets you the jobs, whether you're at the beginning of your writing career or you've been doing it for a decade (like me). You'll need to show your writing work with every prospective client. 

There are countless ways to land writing work, but they all start with ONE thing: your portfolio. 
Step 3: Level up and repeat 
As you get more work and more experience, your portfolio will get bigger and stronger. You'll qualify for better and higher-paying jobs. 

But if you never put that initial portfolio together, you'll never get started... and you'll never reach those dreams. 
When I got started 10 years ago, there was nothing out there to teach me how to land writing work. Guru, Upwork, Freelancer.com, Thumbtack... all those bidding sites were pretty much it. (Don't know them? Good--stay away from them!) Basically, the problem was that I didn't know how to find writing clients, and the few prospects I had always wanted to see writing samples. 

So I'd send my samples, and then... nothing. Silence. The only people I could get to follow up with me (and tell me "thanks but no thanks") were the people I knew in real life. I was a single mom and everything was riding on my ability to get writing clients. Talk about stress.

After years--and I mean YEARS--of struggling with the whole "relevant writing samples" thing, I finally figured out how to pitch clients and land work that paid real money, not just in "exposure" or maybe a couple of pennies per word. 
Now I'm here to help rescue YOU from that cycle. 
One of the biggest obstacles I see would-be writers face--and never conquer--is that very first step of putting together some writing samples. 

I hate seeing you stuck there! So I'm on a mission to help pull as many writers who are stuck, sidelined, and scared OUT of the overwhelm and into this work I love so much. 
We think it's "more learning" or maybe even "more pitching," but the REAL first step is writing some great samples... and I want to show you how.

Here's what some other folks think about Clips Camp...
I just got paid for writing for the first time ever, and it's as awesome as I thought it would be! Thank you, Ashley Gainer, for your help through the Clips Camp!
- Stephanie
Just wanted to say I’m glad I invested in the Clips Camp. It feels good to have direction as to what to write and gives me a deadline. Helps build the portfolio. I managed to brainstorm over 15 list blog ideas just from the first lesson, and love the guidance on how to touch each of the 4 points to diversify your samples. Thank you! I highly recommend Clips Camp.
- CHARLSEY
I love your course! I've just written for fun for years and never dreamed I could monetize it. I'll be going over the modules over and over again until it's all second nature. You've got a winner here. 
- terri
I'm a freelance writer just beginning her career in her 50's. I'd taken a course or two about how to write for blogs and refreshed my punctuation, but I had no idea what type of samples I needed. Thankfully I came upon Clips Camp. I was familiar with Ashley from Work-At-Home school, and I knew she was a successful freelance writer, so I signed up. The course was so helpful! Ashley walked me through exactly what types of samples I needed to create and where to publish them. She explained everything in a clear, concise, and down to earth fashion. I'm busily completing my samples, and I feel like I'm really on my way to the career that I've always wanted. I can't thank Ashley enough for creating Clips Camp!
- Karen
I am *slowly* making my way through Clips Camp and just had to say THANK YOU Ashley. You have packed so much value into this course! My plan is to really make more progress once the weekend hits but what little I've consumed during my work week is already blowing my mind!
- Amie
I took Clips Camp as my first Ashley Gainer course and it is the CORE reason I felt confident that I could build a business through writing. I'd pay 3x her price for the guidance and knowledge.
- Monica
I just signed up. The main reason I don't apply for certain jobs I'm qualified for is because I don't have a portfolio I feel is good enough. I've spent hours and hours building it, but it's still not good enough. If spending $27 helps me with that, it's saved me money.
- Cassie

It jumpstarted my writing career (which was completely stalled). Now I'm a full-time freelancer with more than enough work. Ashley is fantastic!
- amanda

I've already made a post in this group, but since then I've joined Clips Camp!! All I have to say is aaahhhhhh I can't believe I haven't found this sooner! It's everything I've needed to push me in the right direction, and I cannot thank you enough! So excited to continue to grow with this wonderful group.
- alyssa
I found Ashley through her Clips Camp and it came at exactly the right time for me! I have wanted to work for myself for a while now, but I didn't know what to do. I decided on freelance writing, but didn't have any samples. Clips Camp is perfect for this step in my journey. I plan to write blog posts in the "lifestyle" arena for now. But I can see myself writing ebooks or ghostwriting in the future.
- sarah
Clips Camp for sure!! You won't regret it!
- monica

If you haven't already, I HIGHLY recommend her Clips Camp! I just started it, and it's well work it.
- alyssa

I very highly recommend Ashley's course Clips Camp and listening to her podcast. Clips Camp will help you write your samples, then you can put them on a website or portfolio site. It really changed the way I look at freelancing. You don't necessarily need to have anything already written to put together a decent portfolio. 
- Crystalee
I started Clips Camp almost a year ago and got derailed with a divorce, dental assisting school and getting a job. I'm back to finish this time and appreciate all of the new material included. I just set up my email signatures! This is on, Baby!!
- Briana
A great starting point. Ashley's content helps you do a portfolio audit, which really helped me get my portfolio beefed up.
- MELISSA

I have recently used Ashley's Clips Camp. She's a real, live person who will answer your questions and interact with you. Since taking her class, I have been hired as a freelancer for three different companies. If you're serious about this, you'll want to start here!
- STEPHANIE

I JUST completed the Clips Camp and I feel confident going in and pitching. I am completing one of her other courses now and it's very real and not "you'll make millions by sitting and do nothing!" It's more "if you do X, Y, and Z and actually DO THE WORK - you'll be able to do this!"
- Jessica
I was skeptical too, but Ashley is completely upfront about everything. She takes the confusion out of starting your freelance career. If you're still skeptical, check out her podcast! That's where I started, and eventually ended up joining her FB group and starting Clips Camp. It's really great, I don't think you'll regret it.
- alyssa
I've been full time freelancing for four months now. Since taking the course I've landed three regular clients and I've become more profitable than I was with a day job. 
- Cassie

I knew I wanted to be a freelance writer, but had no samples. I am in the final module and have two great samples, and many ideas for months to come. 
- sarah

Great course! I have learnt so much including that I can actually do this. I had so much reservation (and still have a bit) about writing and not being good enough and no one would want to hear what I have to say that I totally talked myself out of stepping out in faith. My current family situation requires me to have a flexible work schedule so freelance writing is a perfect match for me. Now I feel like a giant!
- heather
I finished Clips Camp and just used my Medium clips to apply for a job!
- sarah

I just started Clips Camp and setup my email signature. I'm super excited to get down to business!
- tina

Clips Camp has been enlightening, informative, and even fun! There is a lot to absorb, which can be overwhelming, but it is organized in such a way to not be so overwhelming. It has helped me think about niches, as well as types of blogs to write and directs me to focus on what's important in writing.
- gisele
I love that Ashley consistently sent email reminders of Clips Camp and also great tips for writing.
- evette

Finally, I can get some sample writing and start my portfolio!
- brittaney

Freelance writing is a real thing that happens to real people who want to make real money on their own terms. 

Through my courses, I've helped hundreds of writers get started... 
With my 100% satisfaction guarantee
You've got nothing to lose... except wasted time. 
I can’t guarantee you results or money, but I stand behind this material 100%. I want you to succeed! And the best thing I can do to help you succeed is to make it as easy as possible for you to try. 

When you sign up for the course, do the work. If you’re not thrilled with the results... if you don’t come out the other side feeling confident in your ability to go out and write for clients... if you’re just not impressed with how much progress this course will give you… let me know you’re not happy. 

If you’re within 30 days of your enrollment, I’ll give you all your money back, no questions asked. You can cut your losses and bail, with no hard feelings. If it’s been more than 30 days, still get in touch. We’ll see what we can do to pinpoint your challenges and make it right. 

I’m that sure of this course… and I’m that sure of you! 

So let’s DO THIS THING.
How long will I have access?
Clips Camp is available immediately when you enroll, and you have lifetime access to the material, as well as any and all upgrades, improvements, and additions in the future. 

You'll also be able to load the content onto any computer or internet-connected device to store or use on the go.

Please note that “lifetime access” refers to the lifetime of the course… as long as it’s available on the internet, you’ll have access. 

How will this course help me?
Clips Camp takes you through the process of building your first freelance writing portfolio. If you have some writing samples already, it will help you identify the gaps you need to fill and then show you how to fill them. If you have no writing samples at all, it will help you come up with 3-5 great writing samples and then show you how to produce them. 

Putting together a writing portfolio is the first critical step toward establishing a freelance writing career, and Clips Camp helps you do it efficiently and effectively. 

Will this help me write for magazines?
Clips Camp isn’t designed for magazine writing. It teaches how to write blog posts for clients, as an entry point into freelance writing. If you’re interested in writing for magazines or for doing any kind of freelance writing outside of blog posts to start, I’d be happy to recommend other resources for you! 

Will this help me with my own blog?
Yes… but if you’re in a position to need Clips Camp because you have no writing samples, I would recommend you temporarily shelve your own blog. It’s very difficult to get two businesses off the ground at once… and a blog is a separate business from a freelance writing career. 

What if I have no writing work history?
Then this is perfect for you. As a freelancer, you don’t need a work history… what you need is a portfolio, and that’s exactly what Clips Camp teaches you. 

What if I’m unhappy with it?
If you'd like a refund and you're within 30 days of your enrollment, I'll give you all your money back. No games or obstacles, but I probably WILL ask you how it let you down. You can cut your losses and bail, with no hard feelings.

When does it start and finish?
Clips Camp is self-paced and open immediately. You're in charge of when you start, and you're in charge of when you finish. That said, I encourage you to move through the lessons as quickly as you feel comfortable and then start implementing immediately. 

The meat of the course is divided into three “weeks” (to keep with the camp idea). You have access to everything immediately, though, and you’re free to move through the modules at your pace. Each module builds on the one before it, so come into it expecting to have homework. These samples won’t write themselves, after all! But I break it down as simply as I can for you. 

The lessons are available in your course dashboard, which can be accessed from any device with an internet connection. You're also able to download every lesson to store and use on your own.

Is this for content writing or copywriting?
This course specifically teaches content writing, via blog posts. We don’t get into any other writing formats and we touch very briefly on a few elements of direct response copywriting to help strengthen the content, but the focus is on content writing.

Blog posts are a great “point of entry” for new freelance writers, because the barrier to entry is low and the risks are also low. The drawback is that it’s not the most lucrative form of writing (though it can certainly keep the lights on, as it did for me for years!). It’s easy to transition out of blog posts and into other, higher-paid types of writing including copywriting.

But because I see blog posts as the easiest way to get started, it’s what I teach as the starting point.
