Here are 12 places to find jobs for WordPress Freelancers.

Have you heard the story of the “Magnificent Seven?” No, not that Magnificent Seven.

I recently read a story from a 35-year veteran copywriter. He tells a story of a group of copywriters who became its own mastermind group.

It turns out, a group of copywriters signed up for a copywriting class at NYU (New York University). A group of the students, including the famous Bob Bly, got together for a luncheon. The group loved the class and wanted to stay in touch. They would meet at their professor’s favorite Chinese restaurant.

Over a period of time, the professor invited copywriters to meet with the group. As time went on, these copywriters began to snag great projects.

What happened, the secret sauce was that the copywriters were able to leverage connections to get good work. One of the most overlook keys to success is connections.

When it comes to landing WordPress freelance work, connections help to move your career forward. At least, connections with the right people will help.
