Hello, everyone. If you’re a writer, there are several ways for you to make money online. In today’s post, I will be going over four them. None of these methods are too complicated. You just have to be focused and do a good job.
Becoming a freelancer is one of the best ways that a writer can make money online. Just in case you don’t know a freelancer is someone who offers services to a business or company. As a writer, that would be your service. Freelancers can have many clients at once. As a freelance writer, you can work when you want to. Also, you can choose what type of articles you want to work on. As you continue to get more work, you can eventually raise your rates. I’ve been freelancing for over a year now. I’ve been able to request more money because I’ve gotten better at the craft.
There are several ways to find freelance jobs. I want to go over a couple of them today. The first way is to use a website like Upwork or Fiverr. Those sites are pretty much jobs boards where freelancers can look for jobs or post what they do. If you are in the beginning stages of being a freelancer, I’d start with one of those two sites.
The other way that you can find freelance jobs is to network with your friends and associates. I’ve gotten about 80% of my freelance opportunities, through networking. If you are looking for jobs, let your network know. There is a good chance they can help you find what you need.
As an editor, you can review other people’s writings. If something is written wrong, you will be able to fix it for them. Many people write things, but before they publish them, they use an editor. An editor will be able to find errors that novice writers may miss. With this side hustle, a writer should be able to do this whenever they have some free time on their hands.
Create an ebook
The third side hustle for writers is to create an ebook. If you know a lot about a subject, you could write an ebook about it. For example, if you know how SEO works, you can create an ebook discussing SEO in-depth. You could talk about the need for it and how to fix yours. There are so many topics out there that a writer can write about. If ‘how to” books aren’t your thing, you could always write a short fiction or nonfiction ebook.
Start a Blog
Last but not least, you can create a blog. The opportunities are endless. You can advertise your writing services, or you could discuss different topics on your blog. You can sell products on there as well. When you’re coming up with your blog, you do want to figure out a niche or two. Then you can start promoting it to people who like that niche.
Your blog will also turn into your portfolio. Once it gains, traction potential clients will find you. You may start to get emails from people looking for your writing help. Having a blog can change your life. If you’re a writer, it’s something that you should seriously consider doing.
As you’ve just read, there are several ways that you can make money online if you’re a writer. Freelancing, editing others work, writing an ebook and creating a blog are just a few ways. If you need the extra money, figure out which way works best for you and get to work.
