Work At Home Writing Jobs -Top 5 Places To Find Clients In 2014
My work at home writing journey has been full of ups and downs. I’ve learned a great deal and also made mistakes. After those mistakes, did I stop and want to give up? No, are you kidding?! Not in a million years would I give up writing for pay. It’s proven to be more profitable than I ever imagined.
The best part about my writing journey is–I enjoy it more every day!
It gets easier every day that’s for sure
It goes to show that real hands-on experience is the best way to learn everything you can about online writing opportunities. Offline writing success should be a big part of your business goals as well. I’m taking charge in 2014 to get into the magazine publishing mode myself. Although, there are a great deal more publishing possibilities out there.
Below are the top 5 places to find freelance writing opportunities and clients
1. Social Media – Your personal network is the fastest and easiest place to find writing gigs, especially if you’ve been networking for awhile on the various social media sites. Share your most current updates, be friendly and network with your favorite business associates. Those same associates should be authors, writers, publishers, professional bloggers, etc. Get in front of them with your best writing samples, blog posts and articles.
2. Guest Blogging and Commenting – Every blog needs current content that relates to its niche. There are plenty of bloggers that accept guest posts for relevant information that their market is searching for. Get in touch with bloggers (within your niche), and offer to write up an interesting and original blog post. The blog owner can only tell you no, and that’s not a death sentence regarding your marketing efforts. Write, proof, contact, follow up and repeat!
3. Freelance Writing Job Boards and Websites – There are plenty of job boards that are looking for writers…for both professionals and beginners. You can find quite a few just by typing “freelance writing job boards” into your favorite search engine…Google.com! You can also have a look at our current writing job leads.
Always do a search for any prospect scams before accepting writing gigs
4. YOUR Own Blog or Website – If you’ve been writing and blogging for awhile, you presumably have a decent readership. Your website should be the best place to include your experience as well as some credentials. If you have interesting and properly key worded blog posts or articles that current writers and publishers are searching for, they will find you! Consistently writing content is the key with your traffic flow.
5. EBook Publishing – All writers and publishers are often searching for eBooks that offer some well-guided information or solutions to their situations or concerns. Also, every writer or publisher can never learn enough. EBooks can certainly help accomplish this. We are always learning something new aren’t we? Well, that’s exactly how it should be.
Learning is succeeding!
