How does Kat make money online?
Kat is a freelance writer.
She described her work in a December 2019 interview:
I write and ghostwrite value-packed blog content for eCommerce and SaaS companies that positions them as a resource in the industry, and educates their audience.
I’ve written for several top companies that specialize in email marketing, shipping and logistics, CRM, PPC, and more. I also offer editing and proofreading services to clients in various niches.
Kat gets paid on a “project-fee scale.”
There are a few ways writers charge clients, but I find that charging on a per-project basis eliminates any awkward conversations come invoice time. Not to mention, it takes the pressure off of totally nailing the word count.

How much money does Kat make?
Kat revealed in the same interview:
I’m about to hit my two-year mark as a full-time freelancer, and I’m currently making about $4,000 per month in profit and about $4,500 in revenue.
Some months exceed that, and others fall a little below. It depends on how much work I decide to take on that month.

What’s Kat’s background?
I began my career at an advertising agency in Denver and worked my way up to a content producer role.
I learned a ton from that experience, but I reached a point where I knew I was ready to move on to something else.
But before quitting her 9-to-5 job, Kat did a little freelancing on the side.
I didn’t have any grand plan when it came to building a freelance business.
I wasn’t even sure if that was something I wanted to pursue full-time.
But one thing led to another, and a few short, crazy months later, I found myself writing blog content for a few clients out of my Maui apartment.
How does Kat find clients?
Kat found her first two clients through past connections:
One of my clients was an old coworker of mine who runs his own agency, and my other client was a public relations firm I interviewed at during my senior year of college.
Building genuine connections through networking has continued to work well for Kat.
I tried job boards like Upwork, but I never found them to work for me.
I know some people have had a lot of success with them, but I decided early on to focus my energy trying to get clients through other avenues like networking, referrals, and through my website.
One other thing Kat mentioned that has help her find clients:
Kaleigh Moore’s Freelance Writing Coaching was the first serious money I spent on my business, and it has paid off more than I ever imagined.
Kaleigh not only helped me figure out the direction I should take my business, but she also connected me with other freelancers, clients, and opportunities.
