This is wonderful, I am a beginner just looking for ideas and “how to” on becoming a freelance writer. I stumbled onto this article in my search and it seemed to put an ease on things. I had no idea where to even begin, but with your 20 suggestions, I feel maybe I can get started. I have only written a little poetry, so this is a new direction for me. I am currently working on my Associates in business, so I have a little free time to try this out. Thanks for sharing this and giving insight on the subject, it is appreciated!
Matt Bowman and Thrive Internet Marketing is the best web development firm we have worked with as a company. Demilec USA has gone through this process a couple times before and the Thrive team was far and away the best one we have worked with. We came in on budget and on time.  We really appreciate their creativity as well as their customer service. Thank you again.

Thanks so much for this amazing list. I am new to the “leap off the bridge” mindset that is doing freelance writing for a living. I have made my living in the past in management and small business ownership (aftermarket automotive parts store, a NAPA to be precise). I have a BA in Sociology and I have also worked in non-profit management and social work but my dream has always been to write. So after selling the business I decided to follow my dream of being a writer. I have done some blogging and have a novel I’m working on along with a few academic papers that were published while in college. I also have written curriculum for young adults that was published by a Christian publisher some years ago. However, even with some marginal knowledge about writing for a living, I found the amount of information out there to be overwhelming and much of it is people simply promoting scams or trying to sell you on their program. Your post is a breath of fresh air compared to much of the other “content” out there about freelancing. Thank you for taking the time to share

Thanks for sharing your story. Even though you want to be more creative, if you want to get paid for your writing as a freelance writer, you need to realize this is a business. I would rely – in the beginning – with what you are good at and have expertise in. This, for you, is health and exercise science. I would form my freelance writing business around creating health content for a client. From there you need to figure you our ideal client. This post may help you out: https://elnacain.com/blog/ideal-freelance-writing-client/ From there you can hone your copy on your writer website to attract that right client as well as market your business!
We’ve fabricated this article rewriter after intensive study, thinking about the requirements of our clientele. It is going to first deliberately look through the article you submit to discover the expressions or words it may supplant with similarly sensible equivalent words. At that point the words are supplanted, sentences are modified, and comes about our return to the customer. Each of the supplanted words will be supplied in intense and featured in a variety of hues. Tapping the featured term will demonstrate the first word alongside the rundown of distinct suggestions. You can pick an alternate proposal or tap the very first word to return.
We all have opinions on what types of content go viral: a soundless social video, a data-backed explainer, a perfectly timed newsjack. But no matter the format, it ultimately comes down to emotion. Does the story make you feel enraged, inspired, understood? With everything you create you have to ask: If this scrolled by on my newsfeed, would I care? If the answer is no, it’s not worth it. Your online content habits are your own best judge.
Rewriting your article by hand is the classic approach that is slowly dissolving, however, many people still prefer so. Write manually and then rephrasing to ensure the finest quality is the safest way but it can often hours, days or weeks to finish a writing task that can otherwise take only a little time. And that’s why there also exist people who like to save the trouble and their time, so they look for an article rewriter or article spinner to do the job.
Una pregunta. Question – does having a college degree give me an advantage and are there any avenues that I can use this to grab higher paying jobs? As I begin to create a portfolio and resume, how can I use my instagram pages to attract clients and jobs? Please take a look and get a feel for what I have to offer (links are in my bio on my rawsalvaje instagram)!

Hi Elna my name is Margie Bilyeu-Clark. I read the twenty ways to become a freelance writer and I am actually writing to books for fun and I am good at it I would like to join in on the writing fun. The tips were great and I enjoy writing I never knew there was such a thing as this until I seen your name pop up and I was curious about what you do and it sounds like what I like to do in my spare time.
By far this is the best and most informational site I have found thus far, I have trouble trying to narrow down my niche , I also read on another freelance writing blog, that knowing marketing strategies, and things like SEO is needed to be successful. I am pretty good at writing but I don’t know about online, especially for blogs and companies. I mostly like to write fiction story’s and academic papers. I have noticed that the better paying jobs are copywriting, writing or starting a blog and jobs like that. Do your course help to write better, as well as help with narrowing down a niche? Some of the information out here is so confusing. Thank you so much in advance!
Thanks a lot for the article. Am a journalist by profession. I was writing for major print newspapers in Kenya East Africa plus online news agencies before I moved and settled in the US in Seattle together with my family. I haven’t written since 2014. Your article comes at the appropriate time for me since I have been looking for ways to break into fulltime freelance; copy writing, web content, editing and proofing. Back in Kenya I was writing about climate change, environment, agriculture and other related topics. Now I want more of a niche area and that is why I will look at your course to start. Thank you.

A creative writer uses ideas and imagination to entice readers with their writing. Creative writers may write books and ebooks, scripts and screenplays, speeches, poems, and more. Other typical forms of creative writing include marketing copywriting, press releases and advertising copy. Unlike technical writers, who focus more on educating readers, creative writers may focus on entertaining them. However, this is not clear cut, as the creative writing technique of storytelling is widely used, both in technical writing and in marketing.

I want to create my own blog, I have a few essays prewritten, could be fine blog posts to my mind. To be honest I am not sure from where to start. I think I will follow your advice about cold pitching and maybe practice in writing a little. Who knows, maybe I will be lucky to find some freelance writing jobs. Recently I was surfing the internet and found this site writorial.com. They say they always have available freelance writing jobs.


Thank you for the post! I’m a bit overwhelmed at the wealth of content I am about to scour on your site. Hours of learning, here I come! I received my first two clients a month ago (one from my dad who is a web developer and the other upon referral from my first client). I am serious about gaining more clients and setting out as a full-time writer, but the process of finding new clients has always intimidated me. I am excited to apply your advice. Congratulations, you just won a new “stalker.” 😉
I don’t know what I’m doing wrong. Although it’s more of a marketing position, I write content two days a week for a financial advisor, but it isn’t enough to pay the bills. Maybe it’s just the area I live in but I can’t land a writing gig to save my life. And writing is a real passion of mine so it’s very frustrating. I’ll try and apply some of your tips and advice. And I feel like no matter how many emails and resumes I send out, I rarely get a reply.

There are some 'free' article spinners out there that require you to enter your text with properly formatted 'spintax' in order to create the end result. But how you need a totally separate tool to create this machine formatted text, so how is this really useful to you? Spinbot does all thinking for you, from taking in the context of every phrase to creating additional textual content that is as readable and meaningful as the text you originally entered.
Hi Elna, I just bumped into this post when I was just beginning to give up because finding freelance writing tasks that pay well has been the hardest task. I have been stuck with content mills for the longest time (I started freelance writing sometime in 2011), I have written tonnes of articles for very little pay usually $7 for 500 words. I look forward to revitalizing my writing career with ideas you shared. I’m taking up the challenge to find better paying gigs.
If you are someone who is trying to have a proper understanding of the functionality of an article rewriter or a paraphrasing tool then you are at the right place. An article rewriter tool is a simple tool that can work both online or offline, depending on how it functions. An instant article spinner or a paraphrasing tool is an efficient yet very easy to use tool that understand and identifies the text you give it, then rewriting it for you. It enables you to get your article rewritten with no trouble. Any quality article spinner saves your time and the trouble of sitting in front of your computer for hours in an effort to write unique and quality content. However, article rewriter is only a tool that does exactly what you asks it to do that means it only rewrites the content you give it, you still can go through the rewritten content make any changes that might be needed. At times, a paraphrasing tool ends up rewriting an article that doesn’t make much sense and that’s why it’s essential to proofread before you use the content.
A few other things I plan to try: 1) buying cheap advertising in some niche publications where writing services aren’t usually advertised but the need is high; 2) adding an online content store to my author’s website I’m developing, so I can sell ready-made content directly to clients (kind of like Constant Content but without the middle man); and 3) pitching to website developers who might want to offer content services as a package deal to their clients. I have no idea if any of these strategies will work, but it’s always better to do something than nothing, right?

I read 10-20 books per year, write almost every day, but I am having trouble knowing what the next steps are to building my credentials, especially without a degree, prior payed experience, or a high volume of readers to my blog. I really just want one simple freelance gig, but I can’t seem to land one. I feel like I’m on a raft in the middle of the ocean!

Thank you for this informative blog. This indeed enlightened a writer like me to be extra cautious as to what sites to visit. I have been writing as freelancer for barely a year now. Lately, I have been hired by a private client through a website not included in the ones you have mentioned. In just 5 days, I have written 22 articles/blogs for her but unfortunately, I was not paid. Worst, she became inactive on skype and on the site where we both are members. What disheartened me more was that I have found some of my blogs already posted online on different sites. Coming across this blog, I now have several options as to what sites to visit and what to do as well. Thanks again. By the way, I am a stay-at-home mom too. Software offer also video creation. You can used your article as a script for video and create high quality video. By adding selected voice and own images you will get more people engaged to your website.
