Hello an thank you very much Elna this article was very informative and helpful. I am a writer and have been looking to use my skills to generate income. I had no clue where to start.I am happy to have came across this article. It gave me not only valuable information but inspiring motivation as well. And I definitely look forward to reading more content from you. Again thank you very much.
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?

Thank you so much for replying, Elna! Thank you for all of the information you provide on here. Your advice and posts have given me a lot to work with during this time of dead ends instead of beating my head against the wall trying to figure out how to get more work. I’m at the point where I am down to one job while the other is communicating less and less with me so it’s making me nervous. Thank you, thank you, thank you for providing this resource! #multilingual copywriting
Involving influencers in your content creation can add credibility to your content, with the influencer’s credibility creating a halo effect around your brand. And some influencers double up and function as subject matter experts if they play in a particular niche or industry. Some influencers May even have existing relationships that make it easier to get earned placements with publishers.
Writing online is different from composing and constructing content for printed materials. Web users tend to scan text instead of reading it closely, skipping what they perceive to be unnecessary information and hunting for what they regard as most relevant. It is estimated that seventy-nine percent of users scan web content.[1] It is also reported that it takes twenty-five percent more time to scan content online compared to print content.[2] Web content writers must have the skills to insert paragraphs and headlines containing keywords for search engine optimization, as well as to make sure their composition is clear, to reach their target market. They need to be skilled writers and good at engaging an audience as well as understanding the needs of web users.

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.
I’m just now starting to explore the possibility of working as a writer and came across this article. I’ve always enjoyed writing and I think I’m fairly good at it, but I don’t have any specific training or education besides what I learned in my college English classes, and English wasn’t my major so I only took what was needed for GE requirements. In your experience, does one need any specialized training or education to be taken seriously in the writing world?
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.
This was my first Upwork contract and my first German translation. I fumbled through a lot of the process blindfolded and thankfully Ela was patient with me. She provided a good translated file, that had the standard typos you would expect in a 70k+ novel, but she was always willing to go back and make changes to the document efficiently, no matter how many times I contacted her. From memory, I think it was her first novel translation too. So we really did have a learning experience, but to me, I think it worked out well despite the hiccups I provided. She also helped with ad/marketing copy within hours of request.
I have a lot to share with personal experience and speaking with passion from the heart about health and diet.

I have strong spiritual practices such as fasting, meditating, yoga etc and know there is a client base looking for writers on these topics. Are you able to advise me or direct me to clients and sites focused on these topics?

Your blog posts and tips have been motivational to say the least! I landed my first gig as a freelance writer by speaking with a contact at a local radio station. Turns out, he needs help creating fresh information for his website. He is happy to be a part of my new venture and even happier that he won’t have to write all of the copy himself! I was even able to negotiate a higher rate than may be expected for a newbie!

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.

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. Writing articles isn't an easy job. After using this software you will get an article that is ready for publication. You can translate text to 14 languages and add selected voice. After convert articles to the MP3 audio file you can use this as a podcast.
