You can find freelance writing jobs virtually anywhere – through old employers and colleagues, on Craigslist and bidding sites, and even on social media.
Freelance writing opportunities are all around us.
But as nice as it is to wade through the numerous opportunities, it can also make the process of landing new freelance gigs pretty time-consuming.
Do you really have hours to scour the web, checking in on every possible job site, social platform and blog? Definitely not – at least not if you want to be profitable!
Thankfully, you don’t have to. Below are a few of the best possible spots for finding gigs – gigs that can be lucrative and interesting and get you on the fast track to earnings.
1. Morning Coffee Newsletter
This handy newsletter found at freelancewritingjobs.com sends daily job alerts straight to your inbox.
It features 10 to 20 handpicked freelance writing jobs from across the Internet, each with a different client, pay and focus. Some come from Craigslist (which means you don’t have to scour the dozens and dozens of city-based Craigslist ads for gigs!) and some come from other job sites across the web.
The main point? The work is already done for you. Just sit back, check your email, and apply for anything that sounds like a good fit.
The BloggingPro job board is a great place to find high-paying, legitimate freelance writing gigs for one big reason: Clients have to pay to post a job on it.
Sure, it’s only $30, but when there are alternative sites that are absolutely FREE for posting, you know a client means business if they’re willing to shell out cash for their post! You’ll find everything from niche, industry-specific gigs to full-time remote opportunities for single clients. It’s a must-see stop on your weekly job hunt.
LinkedIn can provide freelance writing job opportunities in two ways:
- Job postings on the site
- Easy and seamless networking.
Though networking takes a little more work, you can often spot opportunities for gigs just by checking your feed daily.
Did someone change jobs or get promoted? Reach out and see if they could use your services.
