How To Get The Best Freelance Writing Jobs

Getting freelance writing jobs can help you turn your business expertise into a legitimate work at home job.

Even if you don't think of yourself as a writer, you have probably written hundreds of reports and prepared dozens of presentations on your field during your career.

Now it's time to put those skills to work so you can earn an income while working from home.

There are three key aspects of finding freelance work: finding the right sites, creating an online presence and learning how to bid.

Find The Right Freelance Jobs Sites

There are many different types of freelance jobs sites.

There are freelance marketplaces which cover a wide range of jobs and also include jobs for writers. Examples of these sites include Elance, Rentacoder, Guru, and IFreelance.

There are forums that include jobs listings such as the WAHM.com forum.

There are sites which cater for particular types of jobs, such as jobs for bloggers. Examples of these include the Problogger job board and Bloggerjobs.biz. And finally, there are sites which concentrate on jobs for writers, such as the Freelance Writing Gigs site.

You can also find freelance writing jobs through sites such as Craigslist and Indeed.com. These are only a few examples; there are many more.

Create An Online Presence

Just as you search for online jobs, potential clients also research you, so you need to make it easy for them to find you. This could include:

Learn How To Bid

The key rule of bidding is to address the client's concerns.

Most client briefs will provide several points they want you to cover. Make sure that you provide exactly what they ask for and this will be a good first step. Some may ask to see samples that exist, while others may just want a resume.

Showing that you can follow instructions is the first step in bidding successfully for freelance writing jobs.
