The beauty of the work at home job is the freedom, the flexibility, and of course the opportunity potential. If you love to write blogs, articles, or post in forums then you will enjoy being a writer.
You are no longer limited to writing books or having to be hired as a staff writer for a magazine. You can work for a company that essentially hires you as an independent contractor (that's professional for you work on demand and pay your own taxes, we don't own you we're contracting work out to you with certain boundaries if you accept the work) and they don't dictate where you work, when you work or even how much you work.
They essentially establish boundaries such as "you need to write professionally, you need to have good grammar, you need to write compelling "copy", your work must be original, you must spell check, you need to adhere to our clients wishes as to how the article should be written, and you need to complete the project in a certain amount of time i.e. 3 days from when you accept the work".
Often times they will not establish a "when" but let you know they want a decent turn around time. This gives you the opportunity to work fast and get credentials in their eyes as a great writer.
In this realm your work COUNTS and it becomes your resume. As you do more good work above and beyond their expectations they will undoubtedly ask you to do more work, higher paying work even, and they will spread word of mouth about you to their fellow business partners, friends, associates who also need work.
Before you know it your drowning in potential work and can pick and choose what work you WANT to do. What a refreshing change isn't it?!
In this realm you are in demand but you must present yourself professionally every time you write.
Your every article, blurb, blog, even product review is a resume that you can use to show your worth. Others will undoubtedly link their fellow associates to sites YOU’VE built or articles you wrote for them to prove your good standing, and they will in essence do the work for you in talking people into hiring you.
Unlike the other world where you have to kiss up and are rarely given a decent chance to advance or even prove yourself.
A very wise man once told me there are two things in the online business world that count besides your work, your reputation, and the contacts that you make. Contacts are made through successful work that impresses, and reputation is made through those contacts talking to each other. Many marketers are connected to a vast majority of others and this spells out a great deal of potential work.
You can often even learn how to reach greater advancements in your career such as going from a writer to the people hiring the writers who make millions in revenue from these articles they outsource!
Starting at the bottom is essential to building your contacts and reputation, and doing the best you can, writing the most compelling articles you can is essential to your bottom line and your future success. If your grammar is bad take courses, there are a lot available, if your spelling sucks, your in luck because word editors have that amazing feature called spell check!
