I thoroughly enjoyed the article and am waiting for my husband to get off work to discuss taking your course. I have been struggling to find the next step in my career and I keep leaving my job searches to research free lance writing instead. I have always loved writing creatively and journaling, and I think I’m ready to really jump into this for a career.

I am totally new to this. I stumbled across a site on my facebook news feed for “freelance writers”. My curiosity led me to discover that such a thing exist. I enjoy writing mainly for my school assignments and topics that I am passionate about just leads to words flowing effortlessly from my head. I think I really want to learn more about this now that I have discovered it’s a thing! Glad your very informative post was the first I read. Now I am even more interested. I am also stunned by your dedication to respond to each person’s response. You really love what you do.

I am a well qualified Grafik Designer and Social Scientist (Magister Degree in Altamerikanistik/e.g. Anthropology). Besides artistic projects, I did research on plant perception in Switzerland. I have the ability to grow with a job, handle responsibility and build positive relationships with work colleagues at all levels. My last employer was very satisfied with my work rate, and I am confident that I can bring the same level of high performance to the jobs you will be offering me. I worked as artist and designer for diverse projects, as for example Prezi designs for the Week Signals Project. I did participate and experience design research as a ”consumer”, testing apps and games for tablets and smartphones. I feel certain that my strong research skills coupled with my ability and dedication to art, design and customer service (worked 5 years in direct customer service for Jägermeister SE) will be of immediate value to your company. I hope that you will look favorably upon my application by recognizing my enthusiasm, talents in the field of research, design and my future potential. Thank you in advance for your time and consideration. I am seeking opportunities to design /draw, write content and or design Prezis.

Search engine optimization (SEO) is all about improving your content to get better Google search engine rankings. Without excellent content, your site won’t appear in the top search engine results. That’ll make it harder for visitors and potential customers to find your site when they search. Good content is optimized both for search engines and human beings. When you use the right keyword phrases in the right place, your content will appear in the searches it’s most relevant to.

Your article is helpful, and I plan to try some of these. Over the last couple years I’ve inadvertently picked up some writing jobs by good fortune that have paid .30 – .50/word, but writing was always a sideline. Now I want to do more of it – but searches are yielding abysmal and depressing results. My content is rarely and minimally edited (by professional editors)and I turn it in on time with solid grammar and syntax. I’ve been looking and finding gigs at .01/word or less. No wonder so much of the writing I read on the web is crap, including articles written by those who don’t know the difference between “less” and “fewer.” I hope your tips will help me find some quality gigs. After all, my name is attached to it even if there’s no byline.

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.
