Write Your Way Out of Freelance Limbo: Craft a Compelling Portfolio Sample — Without Having Clients!

Go from an EMPTY portfolio ➡ a ready-to-share blog post that gets you a “yes” from clients.



In the freelance writing world, your portfolio is like a resume/CV in the full-time world– it can make or break your chances of getting hired.

In other words, it can either be your VIP pass to the freelance writing world, OR it could be also be your pass to the virtual trash... 

Without a solid portfolio, you’ll find it super difficult (if not impossible) to compete in today’s freelance market.

The keyword here is solid – because not all portfolio writing samples are created equal. Your portfolio should showcase your best work, and not just anything you’ve written before (i.e., forget about tossing in school/university essays, academic papers, group projects, dissertations, and similar… they just won’t cut it)

Okay.. but Reem,

🤔 “What kind of writing samples should I include?”

🤔 ” I don’t even know what clients want to see!”

🤔 “I don’t have clients – how am I supposed to build a portfolio?”

I get these questions, and more, all the time. And I have answers. 

let me guess

right now you're feeling...


Everyone seems to be making money online through freelancing, except you. They all make it look so effortless and easy, but you don’t know where to begin…

Somehow, it just keeps feeling like you’re missing something – a key, insider piece that no one else is talking about. 


You’ve probably joined some online groups, asked others for advice, watched YouTube videos about how to get started, and maybe even took a few courses

But you still haven’t been able to make any real headway in getting your freelance writing career off the ground. 


Because you know you have the skills, passion, and dedication to make it as a freelance writer. You’re just having trouble converting that into cash!

You only need the guidance and support to get there – but no one seems willing or able to give it.

Long before I made it as a successful freelance writer, I was just like YOU - hoping, wishing, wanting to make a living from writing – but struggling to get there.

But after years of trial-and-error, hard work, and dedication…

I Finally Cracked the Code on How To Turn My Writing Passion Into an Income!

You know what the secret is? It's seeking out the right advice, from someone who's been there and done it.

Yes, Facebook groups, videos, and free courses are all helpful to get a gist of the basics, but they’re not enough…

Even paid, theoretical courses don’t get you far. Because what’s the point of studying a theory if you can’t put it into practice?

I realized this was the missing piece that I had been looking for… practical guidance. 

But I’d say I realized it a bit late – because I’d been trying for SO long to make it on my own.

😔 Asking colleagues who wouldn’t share their secrets…
😔 Reading posts by so-called “experts” that only led to dead ends…
😔 Taking courses that just repeated the same theory over and over…
😔 Applying to jobs that were too far out of my reach at the time and getting no responses…

And doing my best with what I had, only to get stuck in a circle of frustration.

It took me A LOT longer to make it as a freelance writer than I wanted it to.

So, if I could go back in time, the one thing I’d do differently is to find someone who could coach me, guide me, and show me the exact steps I need to take to make a career out of writing. Right from the beginning.

Because when you want to start getting paid for your writing right away, nothing beats having a mentor who knows the ropes. Someone who can give you the insider knowledge that’s going to get you on the path towards success faster.

And the good news is that you don’t have to make the same mistakes I made.

Because now I’m offering my expertise, experience and insider tips for starting your own freelance writing career…

I created what I wish I’d had when I began my journey – because it would’ve saved me years of trial and error.

Clarity on the exact steps you need to take next to launch your freelance writing career and never feel lost again.

Your dream career and freedom lifestyle is waiting… are you ready to take the next step?

Here's Exactly What we'll be covering:

module 01


In this module, I’ll walk you through everything you need to need to know about the content universe.

You’ll figure out the difference between copywriting and content writing (spoiler: they’re not the same!), the different types of content clients could hire you to write, why businesses always need a content writer, and the terms you need to know by heart to make it as a freelance content writer.

From SEO to CTAs, you’ll walk away with all the terminologies you need to show up confidently in front of your clients😎 

module 02


Here, we start talking about YOUthe content writer!

You get introduced to the 5 different types of content writers (so you can choose the one that resonates with your style the most!), what the day-to-day of a content writer looks like (in both a full-time & freelance scenario), the big debate: full-time desk vibes or the freelance freedom (comparing them in terms of payment methods, duties, and so much more!), and finally: the exact 4 steps you need to follow to become a freelance content writer.

Be prepared to walk out of this module with an actionable, step-by-step roadmap, and knowing EXACTLY what you’ll need to do to turn your writing skills into a money-making machine.💰

module 03


In this module, we’ll dig deep into the 7 must-have qualities that distinguish high-quality writing from mediocre, “meh” writing so that you’re not part of the so-so crew.

Drawing from my own 5+-year experience as a freelance writer who’s worked with clients from all over the world, I’ll guide you through each one, providing real-world examples from my own writing and giving you exercises (yes, there’s homework!) to help you sprinkle these magical qualities into your own writing. 

module 04


This is where the magic starts happening! You actually begin working on your first portfolio piece that you’ll use to apply to freelance content writing jobs! In this module, I’ll share with you my high-level, 7-step guide to writing a pro blog post.

You’ll learn everything from generating content ideas (even if you don’t have clients) and creating an attention-grabbing title to structuring your post for maximum impact every step of the way. 

and that's not all!

You’ll get these super special bonuses I’ve baked in to help you further!


Meta descriptions are what get readers to either click on your blog post’s URL or move on to another competing blog post.

Since attention is SO precious, nailing your meta descriptions is no longer an option, but a MUST to draw readers in.

While this is a more advanced part of content writing, I don’t want you to miss a thing, so I’m breaking it down step-by-step for you so you can win bonus points with your clients! ✅


Your brilliant writing can crumble if the formatting is a mess – I’ve seen it far more times than I can count, and it isn’t pretty. Let me just say: it’s like watching a superhero trip on their cape.

That’s why learning how to format your content properly is game-changing. That’s why I added a bonus lesson to fill you in on exactly HOW clients want the final, submitted work to look like so that you can present your writing in style.


Let’s get one thing straight – I’m no fan of robots taking over our writing, so that’s definitely NOT what I’ll teach you.

Instead, at different stages of the writing process, I’ll teach you how to strategically use AI to save time, effort, and ultimately, make your writing A LOT better (while keeping your writing voice intact!) The best writers are those who know how to leverage AI for their own benefit, and that’s exactly what I’ll teach you how to do.


A big part of your writing process will ultimately depend on the level of details that are included in the briefs you receive from your clients. So, the question is, what kind of details do clients provide you with? What does a brief even look like? 

I don’t want you to feel like you’ve stumbled upon an ancient manuscript written in a secret code when you receive your first client brief (been there!).

Accordingly, in this special bonus lesson, I’ll show you a real-life brief from a client and walk you through its different components so there’s no confusion left on your end!

“Although I already attended content writing courses before, I wasn’t confident yet to write a blog post. I felt overwhelmed and still didn’t know how to start. I was afraid it’ll be just another course! But, it became a turning point. Reem’s input and insights were a game changer for me. She helped me put all the puzzle pieces together. With perfectly planned, & organized steps, she walks you step by step from the very beginning, until adding the final touches to your blog post. So, whether this is your first course or you’re mid-way, this course will be your roadmap guiding you throughout your career. It’s a great investment, and additionally, you’ll get to deal with such an amazing and dedicated coach as Reem!”




“When I started to learn about content writing, I knew I wanted to pursue this career. However, I didn’t know anything about where and how to start, I had so many questions.

Reem’s course easily answered them all and just gave me the confidence to start.

It’s laid out in the most structured way with easy-to-digest lessons that are absolutely to the point providing the approaches, the tools, and just everything you could ever need.

Adding the fact that you can talk and ask Reem about anything, with her knowledge and experience, adds a TON of value to the course material that has already delivered above and beyond !

Needless to say that Reem as an instructor is just lovable, professional, and engaging. I highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to start writing professionally!”

“I frequently looked for content writing classes. I joined and tried several online, but there was always something missing. Without practice, theories, steps, techniques, and tactics are meaningless. I wanted to write and develop my skills.

This is why I continued to search till I came across Reem’s blog posts and videos regarding content writing. I found out she had just ended her first content writing course by following her updates, and after reading the reviews, I got in touch with her to ask whether there would be another round and to find out more about the course.

After speaking with Reem, I decided to take on the challenge and enroll in the course because of her confidence and what she aims to provide, which I greatly value.

Here’s what I learned: the most thorough advice, techniques, and notes are provided in this course, which makes it special. This course provided me with a comprehensive overview of the content writing process from a practical standpoint.

Reem provided us with a thorough overview of her work in the sector, her experience creating multiple pieces of material with all of its specifics and insider information, and more.

Additionally, the practice assignments you’ll complete throughout this extensive course will give anyone the confidence they need to begin composing their portfolio.

In reality, I believe this course has placed me on the initial important step in a long journey. I truly needed a push to get going, and this unusual course gave me that drive!”

“I can confidently say that this is a great content writing course with the best coach!

The course is full of information, tools, ideas, and practice. After finishing this course, I knew what I should do, how to make my portfolio even without having a client, how to write a perfect blog post, and where to start. I loved it because it didn’t leave me lost or don’t know where to go next.

Reem is an incredible supporter, an amazing person, and a dedicated coach. I’m blessed to call her a mentor/friend. She is always here to help and support me even after ending the course.

If anyone wants to become a content writer, I’d highly recommend this course to start learning and earning.”

so, who exactly is this for?

This course is designed for you if:


This course isn’t for you if:

Just in case we haven't quite been introduced before...


That’s true, but let’s talk seriously for a bit. I’m Reem Abouemera – a writing coach, freelance copywriter, and freelance content writer.

When I first graduated in 2017, I had no clue that I could even make money with my writing. 

I thought writers fell into 2 categories: book authors and journalists. So, I took the corporate route until I stumbled upon a role that made me realize I could make a living from writing.

At the time, I was a full-timer, but I kept hearing stories of people who made 30x more than I was making, just by writing!

I was SO curious to know their secrets, but nobody seemed to be willing to share.

So I decided to figure it out on my own.

I spent years doing whatever I could to learn the ropes – reading posts by experts, watching videos and taking courses – from free ones to very expensive ones, attending webinars, joining groups, networking, applying for jobs, and more.

I made mistakes, tried too many things at once, followed the wrong advice and went down dead-end paths…but I kept going until I finally cracked the code.

Since 2019, I’ve been working with clients from all over the world (Egypt, USA, India, Australia, United Kingdom – you name it!) – helping them transform their ideas into persuasive copy, and crafting content that gets them results.

Now, having been doing this for 5 years, freelance writing ended up becoming the main source of my income. I quit the corporate world and I’m now living the digital nomad lifestyle.

But there’s one thing I miss about my full-time jobs: coaching writers. You see, during my last few full-time jobs, I had held multiple managerial positions, and that came with a lot of coaching and mentoring

From training social media interns to content writers and editors, to managing an SEO content agency… coaching was always a big part of my job. And I always loved it.

I found it SO rewarding to witness firsthand how knowledge and guidance can help others tap into their potential and grow professionally.

This inspired me to look into the possibility of actually becoming a writing coach myself – so I could teach other writers how to make money online with their writing!

So that’s why I’m here today: To help you make it as a freelance writer and find your path faster than I did, so you can unlock the income and freedom you deserve.

With my insider knowledge, you won’t have to waste time making mistakes or trying to figure it out on your own. I’m here to guide you and show you the exact steps you need to take. 

And the first step to making it as a freelance writer is your portfolio. Without a solid portfolio, you won’t get any clients. So I’m starting there. 

I’ll help you write your very first piece of content – so you can start showcasing your talent and get the clients!

are you ready to

make money in a sustainable way without constantly hustling AND while doing something you love?
