3 Tips For Finding Online Freelance Writing Jobs


There is big money in finding freelance writing jobs online. Whether you want to write for websites, or for magazines advertising for writers online, or other companies looking for people to write content for them, there is more work out there than you can shake a stick at.

If you can find it.

Knowing where to look is half the battle in finding work. Here are three top tips to help ensure you’re looking in the right places:

1 – Subscribe to as many free writing ezines as you can. If you search for the terms ‘freelance writing’, ‘article writing’, ‘online writing’ and so on, all manner of excellent websites will come up in the results. Many of these offer a regular newsletter, and the best ones have up to date job listings in every issue.

2 – Sites like Constant Content allow you to post numerous articles and blog entries for free. You only pay a percentage to them if an article sells. Write articles on as many different subjects as possible, write pieces tailored towards requests made by people wanting a specific type of content, and vary your prices to see what sells best. There is the potential to sell a lot of work at this site. I know – I’ve done it.

3 – Keep job bank sites that are tailored towards writing bookmarked, and check them every day for relevant jobs. Craigslist, Genuine Jobs and Online Writing Jobs all list writing positions and contracts on a wide variety of subjects. I regularly find a large number of leads at these three sites alone.

The key to successfully finding and selling your writing online lies in persistence, and in knowing where to look. The above leads will send you in the right direction, without any of the hunting around that I had to do in the beginning.

Write new content regularly and post it at Constant Content. Search the job listings on a daily basis. And when you find something you like the look of, apply right then and there. Competition can be fierce, and getting in at the beginning will give you an even better chance of success.
