Freelance Writing – Where are the Best Jobs?

Freelance writing has come a long way over the years. Now, one can make money by writing copy for the web. It’s not just magazines and journals that need content these days – newsletters, websites, and ezines do as well. Webmasters and bloggers are fond of the phrase “content is king”. But what does this mean?

Words have power.

Sure, images are powerful too, but an internet business isn’t going to get very far with no content.

Internet content serves a variety of functions:

• To inform
• To send a message
• To sell
• To challenge (competitors)
• To convince
• To support
• To assist

A good writer will be able to do all of the above when writing articles and/or ebooks.

However, all web companies are different, and some prefer certain types of content, such as copy, news, product reviews, informational, and so forth. Thus, it’s important that they choose a competent freelance writer with relevant experience. There are many people on the internet who claim to be “writers” yet most of them can’t even put one original article together. They want to earn a quick buck and end up wasting clients’ time and money.

So, where are the GOOD writers? When they’re not working on their own blogs, they’re writing for Constant Content, TextBroker, Guru, and Elance. Yes, their prices are on the medium-to-high end, but they will produce quality content. In the internet marketing world, you get what you pay for, so if you want top-notch articles, press releases, ebooks, sales copy, etc, then you’ll have to pay for it.

If you consider yourself a good writer and want high-paying jobs, you can join these 3 sites for free:

Constant Content – you can make anywhere from $20-$100 per article! You can even set your own rate. I have sold over 20 articles through this site, and have been paid for every single one. As long as you can produce unique, high-quality articles, you can earn a lot of money.

TextBroker – the rates aren’t the best, but they’re decent. However, if you prove yourself to be a great writer, you will have the opportunity to earn more money.

Elance – You have to bid on projects. Some of the projects pay well, while others are a waste of time. Fortunately, you can filter your results when searching for work.

Overall, Constant Content is the best choice for writers and companies both. Writers can easily make $20+ per article, and companies can give their best offers for high-quality articles and guides!
