Freelance Writing From Home: The Key To Getting Better Jobs
There are plenty of great writing jobs available for writers of any level, from beginner to advanced levels of skill. Even if you don’t have a lot of experience, there are jobs that pay very well. Unfortunately, it’s really tempting for writers just starting out to take jobs that pay much lower than they’re worth.
Because good writing is in such high demand, there’s no need to sell yourself short. It’s just a matter of finding out how to connect with the jobs that pay a better price for your writing.
The first place to look is one of the writing agencies online, and there are hundreds if not thousands of them. There are many different types of these agencies; some offer paper-writing jobs to writes; others sell articles, essays or technical papers. Usually these aren’t high paying.
It’s more likely you will get better pay writing directly for a blog or business owner. This means you would write a query letter to pitch your service to the prospective client. Even though you may need to send out many of these, having only a few successful ones will generate a decent income in the short term. If a blog owner really likes your style, you may have the possibility of being hired for steady work.
The beauty of this system is that you get paid for working from home. This is the dream of many people hoping to get away from the stress and grind of daily commuting and less desirable working environments. Don’t give up on your dream – this is a doable business and you will meet with success if you persevere.
Browse through some online writers’ forums and find out what other writers are doing to find the better paying jobs. Perhaps they all hang out at the same social media sites or they have certain procedures they use for finding the high-paying clients. Networking with others is a great way to expand your circle of influence and get your name known.
Getting the well-paying clients starts with having a great portfolio. If you are a brand new writer starting out, write some examples to include. You could publish some articles to free sites or be a guest blogger. Use this experience as part of your portfolio so you can show prospective clients some of your work has already been published on the web.
