How lucrative is this skill?

Lucrative and very lucrative if you build and grow your brand...

Bros, that's a superstitious belief. Most chaps writing articles aren't really professional ; they just only focus on particular niche and make themselves stand out in the crowd. Try and visit AWAI and see how a people with zero writing experience become 7-figure writers in less than 2years

God bless you for this. He really needs to pick up the pieces. Along the line, he'll get better and more proficient. I'm a freelance writer and I learnt on the job.

Learn high paying skills. Skills like
- Copywriting
- Content writing
- Data science and analytics
- Web development and design
- UX writing
- Virtual assistant
- Email marketing
- Social Media management
- Coding
- Graphic design

Become a badass in one or two of these skills, then start offering them as services to clients on Upwork. There's mad money in these skills.

For example, I do content writing in the tech and games niche and I've made a pretty good amount since I started.

Also, some of these skills especially writing do not need a laptop. By just using your smartphones, you can actually earn hundreds of dollars every month.

You can freelance on a lot of platforms like Fiverr, freelancer.com, people per hour e.t.c but I just prefer Upwork because its better organized and managed.

Right now I'm super broke but I have access to a udemy account with lots of courses. I also have enough mobile data and a HP mini laptop.
The thing is, I don't know which course to choose. I want to learn something profitable with my mini laptop and start Upwork hustle in the next 60 days.
Suggestions are welcome

Figure out what skills you want to offer to clients, learn them well, join freelancing platforms and then start helping people with their projects using these skills. That's how freelancers make money.

I've bought courses, read articles, watched videos on copywriting, it still seem like rocket science. When I see people do it, like the tutors from the udemy course I bought, it looks easy but the moment I try to practice on a blank sheet, BOOM, I go blank. I think copywriters have some sort of ingenious creativity that help them come up with meaningful and endearing words out of thin air to spark readers interest
