I have been interested in writing extensively since a very young age, writing either poetry, novels, short stories etc. Eventually I ended up in the corporate sector writing business plans, marketing plans and various other corporate documents. But freelance writing has been in my blood, just never really had the inspiration to follow this dream of mine. I will apply your guidelines and intend to forge a new career path in freelance writing. I don’t think it would be a problem that I am living in South Africa since the internet has created a global community…
Ugh! Sheverley I was also rejected by Upwork…twice! And I have felt so disheartened over the last few days trawling through the dreadful propositions on Freelancer and Guru…truly nothing more than slave labour, and when I look at the profiles of the so-called Writers my jaw drops as they don’t seem to have even a rudimentary grasp of the English language. It seems quite obvious to me that most of those profiles are fake. Not that the “job” propositions are worded any better! In fact many of the jobs are clearly students getting someone else to write their research papers for them. Surely this is NOT okay?! This article is awesome – and I’ve read plenty! Thank you Elna. I will keep the dream alive and pursue ALL of the above.
Since Google and other search engines show to potential customers content based on relevance to people’s search terms, it’s essential to keep your content up to date. Site visitors also respond better to content that is perceived to be valuable. If your content is outdated, there’s less incentive for them to stick around and read it. Finally, it’s also important to refresh your website content as SEO requirements change to make sure it’s always easy for people to find your website via search engines.
Thank you so much for this information. I’m currently a massage therapist and pregnant with my first child. Knowing I’ll need extra income for baby expenses has me searching for alternative ways to make money before the baby arrives. I’ve always enjoyed writing and hope to finish my first book within the next two years so getting paid to write seems fabulous. From the tips you’ve provided, my first steps will be to google “publication pay submission”, check Craigslist and Sophie Lizard’s newsletter. I look forward to getting back to you shortly with an incredible praise report!! Thanks again!!
No matter who we’re writing for, or what sort of material it is, every content writer is a researcher first and a writer second.  In nearly every case, the content writer will be dealing with a subject that he or she is not familiar with, and must do adequate research to ensure that all the information presented in his or her article is accurate, current, and doesn’t contradict the company’s existing messaging. Good research is the foundation of good content writing. And for those of you wondering, yes, this article is the rare exception to that rule – I actually knew this stuff already. #web content writer

Social media writers can be a smart way to get more mileage out of your content by repurposing it into snackable social content. Social media posts and social media graphics are their most common assignments. Outsourcing social media content can be a smart move, as more companies try to participate in social media but lack the internal expertise or bandwidth to execute to their full visions.

As a university educated interior designer and with over 10 years very successful experience in high level international recruitment marketing and HR project management as well as over two years intensive online and social media experience I am now offering my work and expertise here on UPWORK. My upbringing as well as my education has been bilingual German/English, I consider myself a native German speaker and absolutely fluent in English. I was working with Fortune 500 companies consulting businesses in the retail, automotive and engineering sectors during my cooperate years as well as small business and start-up entrepreneurs. Quitting my successful cooperate world career two years ago and pursing freelancing full time has given me the freedom to combine my expertise in HR, Recruitment Marketing and Project Management with my strong passion for Social Media Marketing (and a design background is also always helpful in the “pretty” SM marketing world). I am proficient in Microsoft Office and familiar with Gmail, Google Drive, Google Docs and Social Media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest etc. In regards to frequently used systems in the social media world I have very good knowledge of squarespace, wix, leadpages, canva.com, picmonkey, mailchimp, filmora/wondershare, microsoft movie maker, webinarjam, zoom, digistore24 as well as scheduling softwares like hootsuite and buffer and course platforms like teachable or udemy. I have created copy for online ads, promotional e-mails, job ads, info brochures, CVs etc. I am experienced in writing appropriate content for blogs, fb ad, job ad, tweets, doing extensive online research as well as in designing attractive visual marketing posts, ebooks or presentations representing your brand as well supporting members in Facebook Groups. Trying to always learn more and to be up-to-date with the latest ideas and trends in the social media world I am strongly following the work of experts like Amy Porterfield, Rick Mulready, Michael A. Stelzner, Jon Morrow, Derek Halpern, Kimra Luna and many more. Services & support I offer include but are not limited to classic Social Media support and VA tasks to translations English/German, copy writing for social media or blog posts, project management, planning and set up recruitment strategies for small business, interview preps, candidate pre-screenings & support during interviews, full recruitment management as well as CV and job ad copy for the German speaking job market. I am pretty flexible with respect to working hours. Deadlines are sacred for me and I will work closely with you always trying to fulfill my client’s expectations. Many people would say that Germans are usually known for being reliable, professional, perfectionists and delivering work on time…and this German here is exactly one of these Germans. :) I do have to say that I also expect the same professional behavior and partnership from my clients. You have questions or queries? You have a business and plan to take it online to the social media world but do not know where to start? You want to get started on THAT project, that you had on your mind for so long but no time to do it all yourself? You are looking for a reliable partner to take care of your small business social media needs but do not want to hire a full time staff member yet? Then contact me NOW and let us get started!
Other article spinners also require that you enter your own custom synonyms manually or individually approve lists of potential synonyms as they are presented to you. This is another way of expecting you to do most of thinking, as opposed to expecting the software to be smart enough to instantly make judgment calls for you. Thus, one of Spinbot's main goals is to make the article spinning process as quick and painless as possible.

I absolutely love this article Elna. Thank you so much for providing your top techniques on how to start as a freelance writer. I think I have read so much content from numerous bloggers about writing content, starting blogs, making a living writing, etc. but have not yet come across anything quite like your article. I was already familiar with some of your techniques, but this was only a few. The first thing I am excited to do is take your course. I am a stay at home/work at home wife and mother. I was laid off from my job of 7 years almost 3 years ago and have been struggling with contributing to my household after my last pregnancy. I have written for pleasure most of my life and want to be able to continue being home for my family. I never thought that I would consider cold pitching but the way you put it just makes so much sense. Literally reading your article I was in such awe and had several “A-ha” moments. Again, thank you for sharing.
How brilliant you are Elna. I went through your website and I could feel such positivity in your words. I really want to congratulate you on the kind of person you have turned out to be. There are very few people who sound as enlightened as you do. Your help through the words on this blog will definitely help me because if they don’t I don’t know what would. Keep it up Elna, go as far as the wind.
To the untrained eye, players all appear to do roughly the same thing — dribble, pass, shoot. But in reality, each player has a position and a particular role. Some help set up plays by passing. Some help clear out space for others to take shots. Some shoot from the paint and some shoot from downtown. Even within the same position, some players are more adept at certain skills. Some block, some steal, some assist, some rebound and some are pros at the fast break.
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!
Elna, thank you for this wonderful article. It is full of resources, and it has motivated me to begin work as a freelance writer. I am currently a single parent of two witty little boys, who works full time outside of the home. In reading this article, I have found a renewed strength and a bit of a push to move forward with optimism to start little by little until I am able to eventually work more time from home. I appreciate you sharing this information.
Your blog post has been extremely helpful, thank you so much! I’ve been doing some freelance writing on Upwork for a while now. I don’t take any gigs that pay anything below $10/100 words, but it’s often difficult to find clients that appreciate your work there. Most of the gigs are the “$0.5/100 words ABLE TO WRITE 3000 WORD A DAY AT LEAST” type which is sad. I’m gonna run with some of your suggestions here and see how it goes.
This is my foot in the door and I’m following some of your other tips in order to get myself out there even more. I’m an introvert, so this is new and difficult for me. I have questioned myself countless times and am feeling a bit impatient, but I’m trying to trust the process and take it one day at a time. The warmth and encouragement that come through in your writing have helped keep me going. Thank you Elna!
Digital content, digital media, digital earnings; these three are today’s most important topics of the web arena. Today, content is the king as well as the queen , there should be no compromise, therefore, on unique content. We have become so used to using online tools that sometimes we find ourselves at a complete loss of words. We know what we want to say, but we somehow cannot figure out the words to say it. This is even more problematic when we have a document which we want to re-write in such a way that it becomes unique.

Thank you so much for writing this post Elna. It has been really very helpful indeed. I have been a part time freelance writer for about 6 months now but still feel like I am finding my feet. This post has given me a boost and some new options to follow up. It certainly seems like the strategy should be to go at it hammer and tongs and never, ever give up! Thanks again. I look forward to exploring your website some more.

There are many people who still prefer rewriting their articles by hand. They are used to write sentence after sentence and rephrase their content to ensure the quality of writing. Although it is the safest approach but it can take hours or days to complete a task. On the other hand, there also exist people who are either too lazy to rewrite their content or they understand the importance of time and hence, they look for an article spinner tool or paraphrasing tool.

The content writer doesn’t just write 500 words on how great your hat shop is and call it a day; a good content writer will ensure that in addition to content being fresh, it’s also optimized for the specific keywords that are going to increase your search ranking, bringing more visitors to your site.  We understand the value of a great headline, appropriate keyword density, and keep up with current SEO best practices to ensure that the methods we’re using are the most effective.  If you’ve been seeing your search ranking sinking, a good content writer can dig you out of the hole of SEO silence.
Ideally, you’ll have somebody to edit your writing. If you’re responsible for writing and editing your web content, don’t do both in the same day. When the writing is still fresh, your mind will automatically make up the gaps in your copy and your editing will be subpar. Instead, put it away and come back to it another day — or at least several hours later.
For example, let’s say you follow an amazing food blogger who you get almost all your dinner ideas from. She comes up with healthy and quick meals that fit perfectly with your lifestyle. One day, you visit her site expecting a daily recipe, but instead, find a post on color-coordinating your wardrobe. The horror! Chances are you’d be turned off by it and would quickly search for a substitute food blogger. Audiences expect you to provide what they need — consistently.

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.” 😉
Words matter – my singular goal is to ensure they are chosen wisely to convey your ideas and deliver your message in the most effective way. I have a special interest in law, finance, engineering, and IT and am also a freelance lawyer-linguist at the Court of Justice of the European Union. Detail-oriented, meticulous yet creative native German editor/writer/translator and jurist with a firm grasp of the English (UK and US spelling) and German languages, in-depth research experience and a background in law, marketing, and publishing. I spent a couple of years (until 2014) working as a researcher and writer for specialised – financial and legal – publishers in London, UK. • Editing (developmental & copy editing) and proofreading tasks are performed with a high degree of accuracy, an eye for consistency and coherence, readability, and text-flow to ensure your German texts are clear, appealing, and audience-appropriate. • Linguistic review of German online content/websites (regarding the use of market-appropriate language in the context of specific or all user journeys, evaluation of UI and UX, etc.) • Machine-Assisted Human Translation (MAHT)/localisation/transcreation (ENG/GER) as well as creative and technical writing services: I offer 15+ years' translation/writing experience (website content, Google ads, white papers, contracts, business plans, surveys, marketing material, etc.) with particular expertise in legal, financial, engineering, IT, and healthcare subject matters. Above all, I am committed to delivering high-quality translations that are both technically and culturally accurate in the fastest possible turnaround time. • Legal research & contract review is focused on EU and German law. • In addition, I have a penchant for literature and the arts and will take on any given subject with great enthusiasm and diligence. I listen to your needs and strive to become a valued asset and a trusted advisor.

Important notes: - A one-hour minimum ($90) will apply to all hourly projects and milestones. - On fixed-price contracts, I will perform 1 round of revision. Additional revisions require the assignment of a new milestone. - As I handle legal/sensitive information on a regular basis, I do not work with the automatic Upwork time tracking tool due to confidentiality issues. - Despite being a fully qualified German lawyer, I do not practice law anymore. When editing/proofreading/translating legal documents or conducting legal research, my work products do not constitute a legal opinion or legal advice. They are prepared solely for your private use and not a substitute for the advice of a licensed attorney. Thank you for your understanding.
When you reference another website’s content, make sure you hyperlink back to that site. It’s good internet etiquette, and you’d want the same courtesy. Always cite your sources, even if you’re afraid it’ll send your web traffic to another site — and you can always choose the “open link in another window” option if you’re that concerned about keeping your traffic.
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.
Name recognition is important. Social media puts everything you need within your grasp. Build your audience, meet publishers and talk to industry experts. When your writing is published, the fun has only just begun. The more active you are on social media, the more likely your followers will be to recommend your content. Successful content writers are active, public and friendly.

Hey, Elna! I appreciate your input more than you can imagine. I graduated with a BFA in Creative Writing for Entertainment, and while my focus is mainly writing scripts for film and commercials, I also blog. (Mostly for my own entertainment.) Still, it’s good to know there are ways to get going. Believe me, I’ve tried. But being a graduate with two kids and no hubby makes the task a bit daunting when I’m a “lone pilot.” Thanks again for your inspiration.

That’s great you want to get started freelance writing! Writing for school or university is different than online writing (this post lays out some tips: https://elnacain.com/blog/5-grammar-rules-every-blogger-must-know/). But in saying that, it just takes practice and reading online content to be familiar with it! If you have the passion and motivation you can become a freelance writer!
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.
It is a difficult job that everyone cannot do it. Therefore, people search online tools and services that can provide rewritten articles in best quality. However, there are many companies available online that charge high from the peoples for article spinning. So, Many people can't afford the charges and look for free tools. It helps you to modify your desired article without changing its meaning.
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.
In some cases, the guidance or existing copy that a content writer receives from his or her client is, in a word, awful. Many are the days that I’ve sat down to look at a wall of ill-formatted, poorly spelled, stream-of-consciousness rough copy, and begin the arduous task of editing and polishing it. It’s the intellectual equivalent of cleaning up someone else’s bedroom: you just don’t want to know what goes on in there to cause such a mess. Still, we do it, and we smile, because in the end making you look and sound good is what our jobs are all about.
As mentioned above, writing an amazing article requires students to have proper skills. But sometimes, even the most efficient writers do not possess the necessary time to compose a good, well-written and solid article. Do not hesitate before asking for article help! At times, it is something you need to do in order not to worry about failing to meet a deadline because it isn't physically possible for you to do it all on time. Do not waver, ask for professional article writing help!
