For a new writer it is difficult to follow the strategies used in the process and certain tips will help them to success in the career. As the competition is more in writing field every project owner consider experienced persons only. This reduces the chances of getting projects for a freelance writer.
Free writing makes a writer unprofessional
We can see many sites or job boards will give option to publish articles. Some of them will not pay and they will say that this is for fresher to improve writing skills and to get more popularity and to get more clients. But this is wrong. A good project owner never prefers anybody writes for free. This free publishing will only result to create a bad impression in the field as free writing reduces the value of the profession.
Creating own writing samples
Almost all writing job ads or project owners will ask for sample which helps them to know the quality of work. Allotment of project is based on sample only. So it is a better option to make sample of high quality in free time. We can create own website or blog and publish the sample in it. This helps to get more publicity easily and we can give site or blog address to the clients if they demand sample.
Learn about SEO and write
Nowadays most business takes place online and all website owners want to find their site if anybody searches for related content. Articles are the main tool used for online promotion and SEO. The website content or article must contain the keywords which are easy to give direct access to the site. So while writing we have to include keywords which can easily direct to the site. Learning the techniques of SEO based writing will increase the chance of getting website content writing projects.
Ad revenue without much effort
Some sites offer revenue created by advertisements. If we publish our articles in such sites the site will pay us some amount as per the traffic they get through our articles. The traffic will be very less for such sites and they will pay only for traffic created. We will not get any payment for writing articles and this is wastage of time.
Never accept low payment offers
There are many offers we can see on jobs portal or freelance sites such as few dollars for many articles. These are really wastage of time as we will not get reasonable income for the work. If we take up such projects we have to work hard to earn normal income.
