You can take two different approaches to starting an online writing career. You can submit your content to ad-revenue share writing sites or pursue a more traditional freelance writing career where you get paid per assignment.
If you’re pursuing the revenue sharing route, then it may help to learn a bit of SEO (Search Engine Optimization). The reason for this is that you want your articles to get as much publicity as possible.
The more views that your article gets the more you’re likely to earn. You don’t have to become an SEO expert, especially since you’re not working on your own website, but a little bit of knowledge can go a long way.
Below you will find a list of revenue share writing sites, freelance writing websites, and online companies that will pay you for proofreading & editing work.
Revenue Share Writing Jobs (Updated 2018):
If you decide to go the more traditional route then you don’t have to worry about anything other than submitting correctly written assignments. But before you start bidding on freelance writing jobs, you should prepare a few things.
The most important thing to have is several examples of your writing. Choose your best pieces and try to have examples that fit the type of writing that your new employer is looking for.
You should also have a list of referrals that you can show employers to help you land the more desirable jobs. A lot of freelance websites allow clients to rate freelancers so you can refer potential employers directly to your profile, provided that you have great reviews.
