Following are 20 freelance writing job leads. Take the weekend and apply to a few, or more, and let me know how it works out, ok?

Online Freelance Writing Gigs: Some Observations

BTW, following are a few things that stood out to me as I hunted down these leads. Note: I am an affiliate for some of the products and services listed here. Read my affiliate disclosure policy for full details.

1. Many guest posting opportunities pay

When sites grow large, one of the things they need to keep growing is good, informative content. Hence, there are many more guest posting opportunities that pay now. And we’re not talking mere pennies — I ran across sites that pay $200 for posts; most pay in the $25 to $100 range.

2. Need for ongoing content is rising

I ran across quite a few leads where the need for content was ongoing. Many of these are content marketing agencies — where they have many clients across tons of genres. So if you get in good with an agency, they can keep you busy for a long time.

In case you’re new to the site, one of the things I’ve shared frquently is that my first SEO writing was a search engine optimization (SEO) company in Canada. They hired me to write articles on mortgages.

I worked with that company for almost two years, writing a few thousand articles for them on everything from how to make wire jewelry to descriptive web content for ski resorts.

Also, I worked with various account executives in the company. What happens with companies like this is usually one account exec will refer you to others in the company if they like your work.

This has happened to me many, many times in my freelance writing career. So these companies are good to target for work for many reasons.

3. Many freelance writing jobs require SEO knowledge

This is just a norm these days. If it’s a skill you lack, it can be that much more difficult to land jobs because many clients expect you to come to the table with this knowledge.

Now, to today’s leads …

20 Freelance Writing Job Leads

1. Freelance Content Writers: Mainstreethost is seeking freelance content writers and editors for both web content writing and blog writing.

These individuals will be given assignments to write 150 to 200 words of original content (website copy) up to 800-plus words (blogging) for the websites of small- and medium-sized businesses. Writers will receive as much or as little content as he/she can handle on any given day.

Pay: Not listed.

FYI, this is with a digital content marketing agency. Companies like this tend to have lots of work, but can be low-paying (eg, $10-$35 per post). I listed it here though because of the potential for ongoing work and for newbies who might want to get some experience under their belt. And, it may pay better, as one freelancer underscores in the comments section of this post, writing:

I’ve set a goal of not looking for jobs below $50 per 500 words. So, far I’ve sent out about 10 or so proposals or emails and I found one client who pays $70 per 500 words. My goal is to replace most of my current clients with those who pay the higher rate, so I can work less and earn more.

So target these clients; they’re great for ongoing work.
