High Paying Freelance Writing Jobs

by JoyLynskey

Working as a freelance writer can be thankless and often frustrating. Learn how to go from slow pay to knock out pay in a few easy steps.

Do you work as a freelance writer part-time or full-time? Perhaps you are currently a part-timer who is too realistic to make the leap from your day job to a full-time career in online copywriting, writing short stories, or even just running a personal blog. Well, before you quit your day job, or before you dive into that new car you have been eyeing, you may want to do a few things that will enable you to have a fully lucrative career that you can depend on just as much as any 9 to 5 job, but with many more perks.

Spruce Up Your English

Providing High-Quality Content is a Must!

One of the most important elements in a freelance writing career is, of course, your writing skills. Battling with article site guidelines, editor requests, and general rules of English will likely be a constant battle for you, regardless of your skills. This is because you will run across many clients who have different types of projects. Some projects may even require you to use improper English, no easy thing for the sticklers out there.

This makes the most vital stepping stone in your freelance writing career the leap you need to make from so-so English skills, to super English hero.

Freelance Writing Guide - The True Secrets to Success

This ebook will show a budding freelancer how to get started and still provide trending information for the pro freelance writer.


Portfolio's and Social Networks

Are a Must for a Professional Career with Professional $

There are two kinds of freelance writers. Those who jump in, do the work, and hie off to the beach or the nearest pub, and then there are those who have a passion for their work, and want to be recognized as a professional writer.

For those who desire a professional career, having a digital portfolio, as well as a social media presence are both imperative elements of a notable career.

There are two distinct forms that digital portfolios can take. The aesethically pleasing, and the industrial versions are both nessecary to your career. You will meet some clients who may benefit from seeing the creativity of a digitial portfolio such as those that you can create at Weebly.

For a more industrial digitial portfolio, and by industrial, I mean crisp, to-the-point, no hint of fluff, and fully inclusive of all of the valuable information an employer may want to see. You can find a more industrial digitial portfolio format at Foliospaces.

A well-prepared freelancer will have both formats to provide to their clients depending on their specific needs.

Social Networking

Social networking is another element that a freelance writer needs to give critical consideration. Although there are over 220 social networks and aggregation sites, you will need to choose those that are most relevant to your career. 

Take the time to learn from an expert who has tried the methods that have proven highly effective.

Where to Find the Real Freelance Writing Jobs

The crux of the problem

There are many fantastic freelance writers out there just lined up waiting for that one job that will make their career, concrete their own sense of self-worth in this position, and in general just cause much celebration and hub-bub for a writer who has previously been down on their luck.

However, one of the most critical issues is that there are so many others, willing to do the same work as you, but for much lower prices. This likely eliminates the possibility of batch work from the freelance writing path for many high-end writers. This is a good thing. Your goal as a freelance writer, that is, if you are one who expects to be compensated fairly, is to stay away from large write sites where you are forced to compete for prices, instead, apping and working for more private copywriting companies where extreme high-quality may be expected, but you will also be properly compensated for your time in fixed pay rates.

Most of the companies provided in this freelance writer ebook pay begins at 5 cents per word, some going as high as 10 cents or more. I can promise that anyone who has the quality of writing required for these sites, can make multiple k's per month in reliable work, and promising career opportunities.

I would also recommend ContentSpree.com. We're a content marketplace focused on business writing (which typically has much higher pay rates). We're launching this month and are currently accepting registrants.

Hi Yarddog.

Its been a very busy week :) Missed the notice on the first mail but I got this one. Let me figure out how to generate a coupon code for it for you on Amazon. That way you can get it for free, just for asking and being patient. Ill go now and check on those options. Usually Amazon takes about 3 days to do anything, so will get back to you soon!

It's been a week and no response. I guess I will have to assume the eBook is not worth $5 and move on.

Great job and great information and resources. I have been writing freelance for a few months now and am tired of working 10 hours a day to make $30 bucks (that's on a good day). I would like to know more about these better paying companies that are not publicly known, and I have a question about the ebook "Where to Find the Real Freelance Writing Jobs" you are promoting. Have you looked at or purchased this ebook? Can you tell me if it is worth the time and money? Every time I buy an ebook for this kind of information, I find that it is outdated and useless. I know it's only five bucks, but it's my five bucks that I do not wish to waste. Anyway, keep up the great work and keep writing. Have a great day and a wonderful New Years weekend.

I hope you do Stacey! I am 100% here for you if you take that leap! Thanks for commenting sweetheart!

Stacey on 11/18/2011

Well done, and how odd at the moment for me...I have been considering doing something along these lines for the past week or two, something I can do while we full time in the RV. It's almost a sign :) Thanks for sharing!
