Let us dwell on the posts for beginners in freelance writing.

Copywriters, content writers and rewriters write texts. It is not really necessary to be an outstanding writer in order to start doing this job. The most important thing is to know your grammar, the structure of the texts and to understand the preferences of the client, as well as be able to sell your work.

The novice freelance writer can also try to write essays for money. You can find tasks on writing essays and articles on the web resources that specialize in helping students with their homework.

One of the most popular stay-at-home jobs is the administrator of social networks.

If you cannot live a day without social networks and like to post interesting posts or to chat, then this job is for you. Administration of one social community takes at the most a couple of hours a day.

The main thing is to learn to understand the topic of the public and find interesting news, as well as to create all sorts of contests to attract new subscribers.

The trick is to correctly present this or that product and attract the attention of potential subscribers with an interesting perspective and description.

Today, there are many exchanges of work from home writing jobs, where you can register, fill out a portfolio and receive tasks for writing texts. However, usually competition on such resources is high and the freelancer should do his best to get positive feedback and as a result, new orders. Below, we’ve collected 6 key steps that will make you almost guaranteed to succeed on online labor exchanges.

1) Goal

Without the goal, there are virtually nothing to do at super-competitive freelance exchanges for copywriters, content writers and rewriters. Getting started as a freelance writer, you should clearly define exactly what result you want to achieve. This may be a certain amount of monthly earnings, new experience and skill building, development and search for a new niche.

2) Technical Awareness

The online platform for freelance is a well-established system that works almost smoothly. In order to get all the benefits, you need to clearly navigate their work. Types of contracts, the payment system and methods of withdrawal, the subtleties when choosing customers – all these are interconnected and very important components.

With such technical training, every freelance writer has a chance to get serious lucrative contracts and avoid many mistakes (including financial ones).

3) The art of sales

The main product sold on online services is the freelancer service. You can be a top-notch specialist, but in the absence of sales skills, your career growth will occur very slowly.

The point is that sales are virtual, you are the product and at the same time the seller, and the profile is your electronic “package”.

What does the sale of freelancers begin with? With the first impression in our opinion. Only by making your resume positive and building confidence in your profile, you can rely on high profits.

These are what usually the profile consists of:

  • Photo
  • Positioning
  • Brief description
  • Complete description
  • Salary
  • Portfolio
  • Certificates
  • Reviews
  • Average grade

Having competently and thoughtfully filling all these components of the profile, you will definitely make your freelance profitable.

4) Effective management

Freelance work is seriously different from that of an office worker. First, this is because the schedule and the mode of loading specialist regulates independently. Without the skills of self-management, there is no way to do this. Often, several projects may coincide in the deadlines – in this case, you need to rationally prioritize and plan your time very well.

Here are some tips that you should follow when working on freelance:

  • Despite the absence of timetable, start working in the morning. A couple of hours every day and all your deadlines are okay!
  • React to the mail and customer messages always within 24 hours.
  • First of all, do a bitter but urgent work. There is such an expression: a good beginning makes a good ending.

5) Financial literacy

The freelancer’s income (especially the newcomer) is almost always unstable and can fluctuate very much during the year. In this case, you just need the knowledge of the basic principles of the funds management, the ability to keep records and compile your own financial plan.

6) Professional help

Whatever high-class writer you are, no matter what skills, talents and abilities you have, becoming a guru on websites for writers will be very and very difficult without the professional help and support of people who have already gone this way and know all the “pitfalls” of freelance.

That’s why we recommend visiting online courses or reading blogs where experienced freelancers share their experiences and give useful tips how to become freelance writer.
