Have you often wondered how to use your extraordinary writing talent to make money? Do you wish to become a freelance writer and explore your options in that field? Seek help from Craigslist and online classifieds following the tips given below.
Craigslist and other such online location based classified websites let people post their requirements and needs for writing based services and content, in addition to a host of other services and requirements. Writers usually have two options to earn a legitimate income. One method is to post an ad, which is free, by the way, offering your skills of writing, or editing services to others. This can take a while to get you some response. Alternatively, you can search the ‘paid gigs’ section for good projects that require your skills.
While posting your own ad, you have to give your prospective clients a reason to choose you over hundreds of writers. To ensure this, prepare a good listing with detailed description of your writing skills and a sample of your work. Your specialty area can be writing press releases, articles, ebooks, and even blog postings. Specify it, along with your price.
You can also search for paying clients on Craigslist, though you should always beware of scammers. A work from home job is good, yet not risk-free. Make sure you get paid for what you do, neither more, nor less. And never pay a training fee, since such jobs are more likely to be scams.
