If you are able to create quality content your writing services will be in high demand. There are many blogs, company’s, students & individuals that need your help – including me!
How to find people who need writing services
This field has really taken off and online writing opportunities can be found everywhere. One of our favorites is the job board at ProBlogger, the lists are up to date with various writing jobs from freelance to corporate/business.
You can also look for online sites that offer writing services and see if they need help or start a blog yourself. If you want an established platform to work from trying sites like Odesk, Elance or our newest find Thumbtack to showcase your skills.
Another great place to look is craigslist, they even have a writing tab under gigs!
Getting Paid for your writing
The standard price for quality work seems to be .1 per word or 1000 word article for around $100 dollars. But that amount can go up or down depending on quality. Price can always be negotiated, depending on your skills as a writer.
Many blogs will pay top dollar for content they like, for example, if you know your stuff on finance Seeking Alpha will pay $500 and up. Plus a chance to compete for two weekly $2,500 performance awards.
Here are just a few of the different writing services needed we found around the web:
