If you’ve ever tried freelance writing online, then you know that it’s tough to start. When freelancing online, you’re competing against a lot of other people, who have been around freelance sites for a long time, sites like www.WriterLance.com and have a lot of good reviews, so often times it’s hard to prove to the hirer that you have the skills needed, for their project.
So how do you do it?
There are a couple of ways to make yourself look professional. First, you could register a site. Such as your name dot com, or your name writing dot com, etc… Once you do that, you could hire a web designer (site maker) to design your site, and then put your content (references, tutorials) in it. First, of course, you need references.
A good place to get references, is to join a couple of web forums, write tutorials, and smart posts, and then eventually, once you have a good reputation on the forums, find a network (association) site, and offer to write articles for free, and show your forums references (how many posts you, have, how many tutorials you’ve made). Then, if you can do that, you can show that you’ve written articles for network sites before. Or, you could get your own network site, and write articles on it.
Another thing you could do is, write some poems, or lyrics, and then try to find projects where poems/lyrics are needed, and then show that you have those skills, by showing your lyrics.
And a very important thing you can do is, when you do get that first project, ask for a good review. If you can get a review, then you can get more freelance work. Hirer’s like good reviews, so the better you get, the more work you get. You can get good reviews, by doing freelance writing work at sites like www.WriterLance.com .
Those are a couple of ways you can get started with freelance writing online. It may take you a long time to get work, but once you do, your bound to get more, so stay with it.
