Finding Freelance Writing Jobs For Beginners


Finding freelance writing jobs as beginner can be hard because you lack experience and some don’t even know when to begin.  But don’t worry you can do it; it does take time and afford on your part to get work.  If you don’t have the drive to put yourself there and fail, then this might not be the career for you.  You won’t make a lot of money at first, so don’t quit your job just yet.  You going to have to start out small and then build your portfolio and gain experience.  There are some ways that you can do this, if you do some or all of these suggestions, you should be on your way in your freelance writing career.

Where To Begin


  • First you want to create a personal brand for yourself, you can do this by starting a blog and creating your own website where you can display your work.  Use tags and SEO to drive people to your website, this will lead to followers and then potential clients and employers can see your following and work.

  • Publish an eBook, I’m pretty sure that I just overwhelmed you with those three words but publishing a eBook on Kindle, Smashwords, or an other eBook website is actually pretty easy.  It doesn’t have to be a long novel but maybe a novelette on a subject that you know a lot about or a short story or collection of short stories.  Just make sure that whatever you publish is of high quality and this will give you a little extra money, while you are looking for a steady freelance writing job.

  • Do small jobs until you find a more permanent one.  You can use bid sites like Odesk and Elance to find odd jobs to make some money and this will give you experience that you can add to your resume.

  • If you want to do more journalism assignments for your portfolio, then you might want to try Digital Journal.  This site pays around three to six dollars an article and has you write news on different topic.

After you have done a few of these suggestions, then you are not longer a beginner and now you can start networking more and try to obtain clients.  Remember when you are trying to get good paying clients, you want to be professional, which means being polite, good at negotiating, never missing deadlines, and make sure the client is always happy with in reason.
