Convert Your Writing into Wealth

An American freelance writer will earn an average of $29.62 per hour, making it a viable source of income. If you are a mom and you spend most of your days at home, then writing is a way to supplement your income. The flexibility of this role means that you can do as much work as you like, gaining a little extra cash when you have the time. However, you may be wondering how you can get started. Here’s a little guide to get you started and make even more money online

Research the Industry

A key mistake that many freelance writers make is to start by focusing on their writing skills. The truth is, you don’t need to be an incredible writer to write for a living. As long as you have a firm grasp of the English language and can communicate effectively, then you are able to earn an income in this area. Written content that appears on the web tends to be simple and to the point. There is no need for an extensive vocabulary or complicated punctuation.

Instead, focus your time and energy on getting to know the industry. You should research what blogs are looking for in terms of content and how much they tend to pay. Writing may be your passion, which is no bad thing, but making money as a freelance writer requires more than beautiful prose. You need to be able to provide solid content that will increase a company’s website traffic. Get to know how to use keywords and hyperlinking to improve the SEO of a blog, rather than becoming an expert creative writer.

Start Small and Be Proud

Once the research is done, it’s time to start pitching articles. There are a seemingly endless list of online job boards with companies seeking writers. Search as many as possible and keep applying until you land yourself a job. Earning a steady stream will come in time, but earning anything at all is a win in itself. Getting paid for online content is hard and many aspiring writers don’t even try. If you earn just $5 from your work take pride in your achievement. As you get going, this amount will grow, so be happy to have an income on which to build.

Freelance writing is a great way to earn money for anyone who enjoys writing. You can take a hobby and monetize it by being savvy and getting to know the industry. In time, you’ll become an expert at landing jobs and will be making a decent income without too much time or effort invested.
