Do you have a natural gift for writing? Freelance writers can earn money from clients looking for creative talent. Writers can create content for websites, newspapers, brochures, and more. Some start-up organizations look for individuals to write positive reviews for them. The types of content freelance writers work on depend on their abilities, background education, specialization, etc.
However, there are a few types of content that are popular across the board. One example is Resumes. It is not easy for everyone to write resume descriptions that sell their skills and abilities. People hire a resume builder because they need help crafting proper sentences. Resume building can be a great way to break into the field.
Blogs. You can write posts for paid clients or create your own blog. Personal blogs generate revenue through advertising space. Sites like WordPress.com manage the ad promotion while you just create engaging content.
Every time someone clicks an advertisement on your blog, you get paid! Making money from paid ads is easy if you already have a social media following.
In addition to creating your own blog, companies are willing to hire writers to write their blogs. Often, you can find companies that require blog posts on a topic you may be interested in or experienced with, like education, law, gaming and more.
Social Media Posts. Companies hire writers to create social media content for their products and services.
Social media writers stick to the company’s brand while engaging with existing and potential clients. Like other jobs, social media writers may have flexible schedules. If you are familiar with social media platforms, a job as a social media writer may be the right fit for your knowledge and skills.
Many of these positions do not require formal education or experience. Good writing is a talent and one that is not easily taught. However, potential clients may want a writing sample or they may want to see a portfolio. So if you have writing samples you have completed in the past, you can begin compiling them into a portfolio to share with potential employers. If you prefer to apply for a job as a social media writer, make sure you are familiar with social media platforms and conventions.
