So you’re a freelancer looking to earn money? I’ve got the perfect websites to find online writing jobs to fit your needs. It’s a luxury to be able to work from home without having to answer to the boss-man. Being self-employed has been one of the greatest things that have happened to me, and I’m willing to share the wealth.
I have three top websites I use to get jobs fast and have even gained long-term clients from. Writing content isn’t the easiest job in the world so searching for clients to produce content for should be. Here are my top three sites to finding online writing jobs:
I’ve talked about Upwork before, but it truly is the best thing since sliced bread! It’s the best site to talk to real clients and get real jobs. I love how easy it is to use and the fact that you can see how your money is really operating. The con is that they do take a small fee from your profit for tax purposes, but of course, you’ll get that back once you file taxes.
Upwork was the first platform where I got the majority of the clients I have today. I still am using it at the moment and have no complaints. I another thing that’s commendable is if a client hasn’t paid you after fourteen days, and you turned in your work for them they will step in and give you the funds. Unfortunately, I had to deal with this once when a client became unresponsive, but Upwork handled things smoothly and made it easy.
The other cool thing about Upwork is that it is for all different kinds of freelancers from graphic design to administrative work. The possibilities are endless!
Textbroker is my favorite way to earn instant money for articles. This site has a variety of pieces you can write for different clients, and you get 24 hours to complete most work. It may seem as though it is not enough time, but you can really earn some significant bucks. Unlike Upwork, this site is specifically for freelance writers. You even get rated on the work you do, and that unlocks the groups you can join and clients you can write for.
You don’t get paid per article as much as you would for a long-term client, but the potential is still there. For instance, doing 5 columns within a week or even a day could earn you at least $20 if they all get approved and depending on each articles rate.
I like the fact that the instructions are easy to follow and there isn’t much need for the back, and forth you would typically have. At the same time, if you do have questions, it can be hard to get a timely response before your time runs out that you would otherwise get with the typical client writer relationship.
Just like Upwork, Indeed has a variety of jobs to choose from. It is kind of my least favorite out of the three because it is so saturated with other posts, but it still works. Indeed is where I got my first two clients ever and even have them to this day.
Indeed is great if you want a writing job that is more advertising based like being a copywriter or if you are more into report writing. However, if you like the freedom of self-employment, they have plenty of freelance jobs available to you.
Indeed is another excellent place to get long-term clients rather than the one time article then on to the next. This will help you have a consistent form of income in the long run and not have to stress as much of when or where you’ll find your next job.
These three sites are great for getting your content out and finding the perfect client for you. I highly recommend you at least try one of the three suggested. Either way, you won’t be disappointed by what you find. If you do decide to check out these freelance websites, let me know how you like them. Remember, with all the great things in life it will take some time!
