How are you today?
I leave here a few tips by seeing them from the experience I had as copyweiting, where I cried, who kicked me and kicked me throughout my apprenticeship.
Today, here are some tips to make sure your writing is not as flawless as mine, I hope you enjoy it.
Well, with regards to the opportunities you have to earn money in writing, the amounts are very high, but … has the number of writers 'offerings that' s worth it. it currently exists has given low prices.
This is the only drawback that currently exists in terms of earning money by working as a writer. For the rest, there is not much concern because the supply is important, but there is also an incredible demand in this sector. You can find many job offers on different job sites.
- In sub-forums of in Reddit (forhire, hirewriters)
- On the work exchanges
- In business / writing forums
This is a much sought-after work nowadays because the phrase "content is king" is very fashionable. And this is not for less.
You can start finding a job perfectly without a blog, but you must have a portfolio to show people who want to engage, here are some tips:
Create texts with different themes, since you do not like a particular niche, you should start experimenting with them.
Create texts on different topics such as.
- The 5 best habits for entrepreneurs
- How to get Facebook visits
- Also about new things in trends …
Pro tip: if you do not know where to start writing. Look on these job sites for the offers they make on the writing and depending on who is preparing your portfolio. Have one with enough quality in the texts and very varied to start.
Download this portfolio to a portfolio site or to a cloud storage site. If you want to save it, put it in PDF format to transmit it to your customers and have no trouble opening the file.
Open a blog It's already later, but it's something you have to do if you want to be perceived as a serious writer. You do not necessarily have to pay for a webpage or open WordPress. There is a good option currently:
This is a great site for writers, it is very simple to use for anyone who just has to grab your mail, sign up and start writing. It's something for you as a community of writers. I recommend that you examine it.
The platform comes with statistics where you can see how many people have entered your publication, from where they come (facebook, google, twitter, medium …) and a full report of all your publications over time.
It's totally free and its interface is incredibly interactive, it also allows you to make several changes to your texts. and if you have been a while and want to become professional, the page offers you the opportunity to create a website using its interface.
You also have the option to migrate all your content to wordpress
Of course, this is something you can do in the near future when you like a niche and start writing to attract customers.
Another advantage that the average it's like a social network / community, I mean, you can post your articles on your Medium page, the web shares them with other users in the community, so it's very useful to get tours easily.
Another alternative very similar to Medium that you can use to download your texts for free and have an excellent website because the portfolios are ghosts. This is quite similar to Medium, many have defined it as their most direct competition.
I still can not tell you much about this platform since I've been using it for a short time, but until now, it has been great for me.
Now with Fiverr. I do not recommend it personally, if you are new to it, Fiverr is a great site, there is no doubt that you are proposing "to do anything for 5 bucks"
The problem lies in its considerable number of registered users, since there is a ridiculous number of writers offering 6,000 words for 5 very inexpensive and competitive dollars on this site, especially when no one knows you in a nightmare.
So, if you're new, it's not a site that recommends you.
Now, when you have a good source of customers, you can open an account and try to send those customers to Fiverr. This will give you more control over your finances and higher payment security.
Instead, try to try these work platforms:
- Text Broker
- Constant content
- And there are many more
Just find: "work platforms as a freelancer" or "web copywriter work" or "editorial work" "I have / we need an editor / writer"
As there are also many other platforms, but more specifically that focus on a specific type of content such as legal texts, academic texts, theses … with a quick search google you will have many results
Well, there are a lot of other tricks but for the moment I leave you with thisDigital friends, if you want me to talk a little more about: how to start, how to attract your first customer, how to have a good portfolio .. let me know.
Warning: This web work can be frustrating in the beginning to get customers (I say it from my own experience) but if it's something you really like to do and you know where to dial well to get customers, you can get several advantages.
If you are already a copywriter, I would love to know your own opinion about this stormy and gorgeous world.
I hope you help friends c:
