5 Secret Ways To Make Money As A Beginner Freelance Writer by generalbush(m): 6:40am On Jan 20, 2018
Do you want to make money as a writer without leaving your home? To make money as a beginner freelance writer is one hell of a job. Freelance writers can work full or part-time, and earn a good income to help cover the bills. If you possess the skills and the motivation, you can define your own career.

While Google and other search engines keep hitting hard on bad content through their updates, bloggers, website owners, magazine and e-zine publishers, and other internet marketers are becoming more conscious of the significance of quality content. Quality content is what drives traffic and brings profit, the demand for freelance writers has been on the increase for some time now and it won’t end anytime soon.

If you are a good with words, you can make money from writing high-quality articles, blog posts, sales pages, email newsletters, press releases, white papers, eBooks, and so on for clients who need them for different online marketing reasons. How do you make a living as a beginner freelance article writer? Follow the steps below:

How to Make a Money As a Beginner Freelance Writer



Gather your resources

If you want to work and make money as a beginner freelance writer, you need your own PC, a dependable internet connection, and time to spare. You will write articles and other pieces as required by clients with your PC. With a good internet connection, you will be able to converse with your clients, submit articles, and carry out research before or during your writing tasks.

You need at least 3-4 hours of your day for your writing assignments. You may not spend up to that as a beginner, but the time you spend will increase as you attract more clients and get more writing jobs. If you don’t have any of these resources, you won’t find it easy to start your freelance writing career.

Write and publish some samples

Nearly all clients will ask to see samples of your work before hiring you as a beginner or a pro. If you don’t have any sample to show, getting clients will be difficult. So, write at least five sample articles on any subject of your preference.

To add credibility to your written articles, upload them to article directories or a simple blog. Sending unpublished samples will make most clients doubt if they were really written by you. But if you send them links to published samples that show your name as the author, your clients won’t doubt you.

Start hunting for clients and marketing your services

No client would want to hire your article writing services if they don’t know you have the skills to give them what they want. So, you will have to spend a lot of time on trying to get clients and promoting your article writing services on social media.

One of the methods you can use to attract clients is to register with freelance outsourcing sites like Fivver, Upwork, Elance, and Freelancer. These websites connect clients with freelancers with different skills, including article writing and content creating.

You can also get writing jobs by signing up with content mills such as TextBroker and iWriter. You will be able to select from a large collection of freelance writing assignments, complete and submit them, and get paid for your work.

Other methods to promote your freelance article writing services include telling your social media followers. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn are good examples of social media platforms where you can promote yourself as a freelance writer. You can also promote your services on forums and online communities like Warrior Forum, Nairaland, etc. So, if you have been wondering how you can make money as a freelance writer, now is the time for you to act.

Focus on clients with recurring gigs

To make money as a freelance writer, you have to laser focus your attention on clients with recurring gigs that will offer you assignments months after months. These clients will become the bread and jam of your business.

You’ll know that you can expect monthly income because “client A” will always give you gigs to handle. You can even go to the extent of signing a binding contract with such client if the need be.

Note: Make sure you don’t put all your eggs in one basket. Try as much as you can to have a mix of several clients within your circle. Just in case “client A” goes out of business, you might still have something to fall back on.

Remember: Never let one client account for more than 40% of your monthly income.

How do you do the actual writing process? Do you write out your research on a paper first before typing? And what about ergonomic stress on your wrist from all the typing?
Is there any easy way to do the typing part? What if you're not a fast typer?

You people will not deal on the real issues. Instead you'll come and be telling long stories, trying to show us that you know how to write sad

I stopped reading when the OP mentioned upwork and elance at the same time. I just knew he copied the article from a foreign site and didn't even bother to check it before posting.
