Currently I am in high school and working a part time job, I probably only work an estimated 8 hours a week though. I have been longing to be a writer for quite some time, I’ve been wanting to be a freelance writer but sadly, most of the sites that pay you require a credit or debit card and I do not own one. Is there any freelance writing jobs that would possibly pay me in cash or something along those lines?
I like that you explain in simple terms how to make your content perfect for your audience and engage them. My fear is being unable to accurately target customer pain points and never turn any new leads. Although, by focusing strongly on the target audience and doing content audits can help adjust content to better fit the audience. I’m SO ready to start producing effective, targeted content that will help people while gaining their interest, and I’ll definitely be using these points as a guide. Thanks so much!
As for writing courses, I don’t think it’s necessary. Instead I would do more of a freelance writing business course like mine or others. Write Your Way to Your First $1k helps you with getting your business up and some writing tips for blogging. This blog also has some great resources for writing: https://elnacain.com/blog/improve-samples-new-freelance-writer/ and https://elnacain.com/blog/writing-mistakes/

These are all great ideas. The problem, which I haven’t heard anyone address, is that all these places want to see a portfolio of your work. If you’re just starting out, it’s not likely you have one. In my case, I did extensive technical and creative writing for my previous company but it was all considered intellectual property for them, thereby preventing me from including it in any personal portfolio of mine. How does one build a portfolio if you already need one to get started?
So what does PARAPHRASE (or rephrase) exactly mean? It's a fundamental way of meaning analysis of sentences, developing, changing one's thoughts, the content of a specific text, for example, two evoked sentences: "father saw how a neighbor talked with mother. My father saw my mother talking with the neighbor" express the same content, but they are structurally different. The system of functioning in the language is valid. It is also reworking or rephrasing the work that contained the content, complementing it and interpreting it sometimes with a lot of freedom, but in the bounds that ensure a clear recognition of the original. Paraphrase is also a communication tool that serves, among other things, to confirm the level of understanding of what has been said. Rephrasing is most often made in the form of longer speeches, therefore only general sense and utterance are given away. In Coaching, the paraphrase is a useful tool, although, like many things, it ceases to fulfill its function in excess. Paraphrases are most often used by a coach when he wants to understand the client's statement more closely and thus show that he is actively listening. Paraphrasing includes: free conversion of a literary work; developing, reworking, rewording and describing a given text, preserving the meaning of the message; it's piece which is a free transcription of the borrowed subject; adaptation; modification of a work that changes form, not content; processing or variation of a literary work. Remember, that paraphrasing is not the same thing as summarising. Summarising occurs when you provide an overview of a topic or give an overview of the author’s key ideas as a whole. A summary is usually way shorter than the original piece of writing and it might state the ideas of a paragraph in one simple sentence.
Thanks so much! So glad you are interested in learning more about freelance writing tips! As for your question, if the site no longer exists you can’t promote that piece unless you have the raw copy. Then you can add an annotation to it and upload that to your blog or Contently. As for your passions, you can skew that to more of business writing or even productivity for businesses writing tips? Explore that and look online for that type of business (even if it’s office supply businesses or some form of business supply app like ShoeBox).

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.
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. You can write and rewrite articles; frequent reason behind rewriting articles is that the customer would want to use the exact article for any number of unique keywords and phrases.
