The Single Best Place to Find Content Writing Jobs

Updated on January 11, 2011

The Best Place To Find Great Well Paying Content Writing Jobs

How many of us have felt frustrated with the freelance content writing job sites? You know those sites, right? The ones that make you take a writing test to join or the ones that are so saturated with experienced people, that you just can’t get in through the crowd. Some content writing web sites allow you to bid a fixed number of times with a free account and after that you gotta pay. Then, you have to deal with budgets, late payments, customers who are never happy and the dreaded negative rating.

The Internet is a great leveler and for every corporatized web content writing website, there is an alternative that caters to the little guy. The most effective way to make money online as a content writer is to build your reputation. Doing that on large business websites that mimic temp agencies can be difficult if you are a total newbie. A lot of bidding is done by companies that have corporate level accounts at these content writing websites and they bid on hundreds of deals a day. This pushes us out.

Best Way To Build A Career For FREE !!

Imagine this... An online content writing career with 15-20 regular clients and another 20 constantly rotating. Easy known and repeatable work that gives you a fixed and dependable income every month. We can attain that by having a great product, excellent customer service and easy work terms. But we need a chance...

Where To Find Them Jobs

Forums! But it takes work. You see an online forum is a place where people involved in a particular industry meet to discuss their sectors and exchange the news. Joining forums is usually free and when you first join, you are required to familiarize yourself with the forum rules. As a general rule of thumb, you should read the forum for at least a few days before beginning to post. Add to the conversation. When you are ready, go ahead and express your opinion and ask lots of questions. Be humble, articulate and always check your spellings and grammar.

Once you have a specific number of posts, you will have access to more unlocked forum features but most importantly, you will start becoming a known voice. You should make as many friends and allies as possible and be on your best online PR game. Always be polite and never flame in a professional online Forum.

Now, there is always as section in the Forums which acts as a marketplace. It is a part of the site in which deals are done. People may sell domain names, web content writing, marketing services and even entire websites. Take a look in there and see if you can find a convincing and professionally written thread advertising content writing services. Note their prices, and the response from other members. Usually, the orders for the content will be sent via private message but a lot of clients also make their intentions known by replying to the thread.

After studying the posts carefully, attempt to design your own. Start small; taking only those jobs that you can realistically handle and keep your rates reasonable. Build your clientele, keep them happy with excellent service and ask them for referrals.

Remember, it takes a lot of time and effort to get to be a known and respected member of any community.
