Searching For Well-Paid Freelance Writing Jobs: A Quick Guide

In order to be successful as a freelance writer and actually make money, one of the things you have to do is work every day. Now of course, you can choose to take days off, or to disconnect for the weekend.

  • If you prefer working on the weekend because of a higher influx of job potential, you can choose to take your days off intermittently throughout the week. You can choose to work three days per week, or you can choose to work consecutively two weeks at a time followed by two weeks of break. The nice thing is that you can create a schedule that fits your personal needs. However, there are new jobs posted every day on all of the biggest freelance platforms.
  • You have to accept the fact that you will miss out on jobs on the days that you choose not to work. On the days that you choose to work, you should be actively looking at all of the new jobs. Once per day, at minimum, you should review the newest jobs and see what customers of posted. It is best that you checked twice per day, once at the beginning of the day and wants at the end of the day, and bid on jobs that you can complete. You might find the beginning of the day that there are emergency jobs, which clients need completed immediately. If you were going to take the day off, where you have three hours before you have to meet somebody for lunch, you might be able to sneak in a next her job even on your day off. On the days that you were working, make sure that you are available to readily communicate to your client. If you are working for someone with a strict deadline be sure to provide them with regular updates. If you are going to complete an assignment by Friday, and it is currently Monday, be sure to let the client know that you will be taking Tuesday off but will promptly return with updates on Wednesday.
  • If you have a negative experience with the client because you inappropriately responded with unprofessional remarks in the middle of the night, that client can leave feedback about your performance which will negatively affect your ability to work with clients in the future. Take this into consideration before you act or speak.
