Searching For Good Freelance Writing Jobs Online For Beginners


Finding freelance writing jobs on the web is pretty easy - open up Google write in your keywords and off you go! However, what’s much more difficult is finding good jobs, because there are a lot of people out there trying to get as much as they can and not giving an awful lot back. The beginner can often get screwed over by these sorts of people, simply because they don’t know the best places to go. Below are some tips for finding the good freelance writing jobs that are online.

  • Go for free freelance sites
  • There are so many sites out there for freelance writers, and many of them are completely free (or simply require a fee off of your payment, and this usually isn’t that extortionate). Make sure to shop around, of course, but there is no reason that you can’t use 2, 3, 4 or more sites to launch your career! Just make sure you can keep track of everything. The more sites you apply to, the more organized you need to be. However, since there are so many, they needn’t cost you a penny. This means even more of the profits go to you!

  • Be picky
  • Just because they don’t cost money doesn’t mean they’re rubbish. The freelance sites online all have a range of different options for professional writers. This means that there are some very boring, poorly paid jobs and also some more fun, creative and better-paid ones. And you have the right to be picky about which you choose! You do not need to start at the very bottom of the pecking order and just scrabble around for the very worst writing jobs. You have the right to go for some of the better-paid jobs, even as a beginner. Just make sure that you get your portfolio up together and sell yourself!

  • Compare wages
  • If you are signed into multiple sites, you can more easily compare what the going rates are for time and amount of work. It is very important that you check whether the work you are going for falls into the right sort of ball park and that you are not getting ripped off. A lot of people seem to think that ‘freelance’ means ‘free’! You have the right, if someone asks you to work for them, to demand more money for your skills. If they say no, it is only their loss! You’ll have plenty of other options to choose from.
