How To Cash In On The Current Trend – Jobs Writing Articles Online



According to a recent hiring trend report from Elance.com, article writing is one of the top 5 skills that businesses are outsourcing to freelancers. It seems like everywhere I turn, there are companies looking for good article writers. It’s really no surprise, especially since Elance caters mostly to online businesses. After all, what is the Internet made of? Words, images and video. These words are actually crucially important.


Most Internet marketers don’t have the patience to sit and write an article for their blog, for distribution to article directories, etc. Some don’t actually have the skill. Either way, marketers online would prefer to work on their next product instead of writing articles. Time is money. Since marketers and online business owners have no time to write their own articles, thousands of jobs writing articles online are available everyday. This creates a lucrative opportunity for people like you with some writing skills.


You can actually start out writing articles as a means of getting your “Feet wet,” and building up your writing portfolio. Once your portfolio is large and you have become an expert article writer, then you can move on from there. There is no other time than now because the jobs are in abundance. Article writing can lead to other jobs writing research papers, essays, etc.


You can then move on to online ghostwriting. You would find the bigger bucks as a ghostwriter. There are other in-demand skills for online ghostwriting. And those in-demand skills are, copy writing, blog writer, press release writer, email marketing specialist, and don’t forget, white papers and more.


So what does this mean for you? Well it means that you can acquire specialized skills, which leads to less competition for you and more opportunities. The key to standing out above the crowd in any job market is to have a specialized skill…high demand but low supply. This way you can actually charge more for your services. Many copywriters make six-figures annually. Wouldn’t you prefer to earn $2,000 for writing just one sales letter, versus article writing for $10 an article? I rest my case.


If you have great writing skills and you love to see your words on paper, you should check out the following companies that are usually looking for freelance writers.

Copywriting

If you are serious about writing as a career I am highly recommending that you take a copywriting course. Copywriting is recession-proof and a six-figure income is not too shabby either. If you’re relatively new to copywriting and want a step-by-step copywriting course, then the total copywriting package by Clayton Makepeace is highly recommended.

If you’re on a budget, then consider getting two of the classic copywriting books below:

  3. I have had a wonderful stint as a freelance writer, earning what most work form home moms can only dream of!!
    Infact, it was only after I achieved considerable success as a writer that I gave a serious thought to starting a blog of my own!
    And need I say, I have never regretted that!! 🙂
    Heres wishing all the budding writers all the good luck. Please feel free to approach me for any questions that you might have in that regard. I learnt it all by trial and error, and would not want any one to go through the same ordeal. 🙂

  7. Writing on the web can be really rewarding. Or course, it’s always cool when you can make a connection with a person or community, but it’s even better when you can make money from your efforts. One way to go (following the type of writing job you mention above) is start a simple wordpress blog that has a few samples of your work and your price for articles, and About Me page explaining you’re a freelance writer, and a contact form. Once it’s up, I’d start sending emails and leaving comments for Internet marketers and maybe finding cheap ad placements on blogs about Internet marketing (see the Advertise Here links that a lot of blogs have) and see if you can get some a few assignments.

    Marketers are always looking for good writers who understand how to write with marketing (SEO, link building, etc) in mind. So don’t be afraid to reach out and tell people about your writing services.
