7 Tips  to Find  Freelance  Writing Jobs

While there are plenty of different services that you can offer as a freelancer to make extra money from home, becoming a freelance writer is one of the best opportunities.

Your blog can serve as a way for people to contact you (be sure that your “Contact” page is easy to find), and the articles on your blog can also serve as your writing samples.

1. Create Your Own Blog

Let them know that you’re working as a freelance writer and list the topics that you cover or industries that you work in, and ask them to let you know if they have any contacts that might be in need of your services.

2. Start With Your Network

There are a number of jobs board that specialize in freelance writing, freelance work in general, or all types of remote jobs. These job boards can be a good place to start because you can quickly find opportunities.

3. Use Job Boards

If you want to avoid some of the competition that comes with applying to jobs listed on job boards, an excellent alternative is to proactively find opportunities.

4. Contact Sites That Use Freelance Writers

Once you’ve found a few freelancers, you can do a little bit of research to find what sites they are writing for. Each site that has hired other freelancers is a possible target for pitching your own services.

5. See Where Other Freelance Writers are Published

Getting to know other freelance writers in your industry can also lead to a number of opportunities. Most sites that hire freelancers work with multiple freelancers, so the sites that are paying your friends and contacts may also be interested in hiring you.

6. Network with Other Freelancers
