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.
Hi Elna! Thoroughly enjoyed this delightful, informative article. I am a full time paralegal with a B.A. in Journalism. I’m about 5 years away from retirement…and would like to shift from full time paralegal work to freelance writing. I’ve been writing a column (“Throwback Thursday”) in the local paper for a year now, for free, but of course I get the bylines from those which is how I’ve built my portfolio. How would you reccomend I transition to freelancing. I’m interested in writing about legal topics for lay people…such as how to find a good attorney…and small community life…and parenting.
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.

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.
Website content is important because it helps you attract potential customers to your web pages via search engine optimization (SEO). Once they land on your site, the content helps people decide whether to sign up for more information and become leads. If you have products for sale, the content helps them make buying decisions, too. Website content is also a crucial component in building an online presence for your business. That’s why it makes sense to hire a professional content writer to create your website content.
Must be able to keep up with the latest news in the entertainment business. We focus mostly on the hiphop genre. Writer must be fluent in american english and be able to write short content that is original with no plagiarism. Must be able to write, find pictures for the article. We will only be interested in a writer that is absolutely fluent in speaking as well as writing english as they're...
It is a simple process where the user will simply copy and paste their article into the text box. The spinner will do the rest as it produces an entirely new article on the spot. Users are also able to include words that should be ignored by the spinner. This is in case you have specific keywords that should not be taken out. This is a fantastic tool for those who are on the go and need quality content right away. Instead of spending hours on producing content and/or spending money outsourcing to writers, it is easier to employ this spinner instead.
If there’s one course I’d recommend to anyone starting out as a freelance writer, it’d be yours. It was exactly what I needed when I started out and it’s helped me immensely over the past few months to put things into perspective. This post is just a teaser of what to expect from Writeto1K, but then again, all your blog posts are packed with the most useful tips you can find online. I can only say thank you for sharing them with us!
Thanks Kari for this sharing. Yes, content writing skill is very much on demand especially when comes to generate traffics and SEO. You pointed out the importance of keywords research, and i totally agree with you that we need to keep the paragraph short and easy to read, last but not the least, i love it when you mentioned that content writing should always offer value to the reader :)
Thanks so much for reaching out to me! I’m so happy you are thinking about freelance writing! It really is a great way to work at home! As for your questions, clients won’t be bothered if you contact them in the evening. I work with clients in the UK, Germany, Tel Aviv and more! So, what’s my time is not their time! I would suggest though to try to wake up before you work to answer emails and pitch, even if for 30 minutes in the morning.
I’ve been rigorously studying freelancing for a while now (I plan on getting started after school ends in the first week of April) and I have to say your bog has been very helpful, especially this post. I thought cold mailing and job boards were the only places to find freelance writing job, and that it would be quite tough finding a job given the competition, but after going through this list, I think finding a job would be easier.
Content writers might enroll in electronic writing certificate programs. These programs are available at the undergraduate and graduate levels and offer courses in such topics as Web design, blogging, wikis, electronic rhetoric, and technical writing. In many cases, employers are more considered about writing and grammar skills than with education. Many employers require a writing test to be completed by applicants.
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.
