Freelance Writing Job Leads for July 10, 2017

Just a word about this week’s listings … you may have noticed if you’ve been searching online for writing gigs how there seem to be fewer of them available. If case you’re new to freelance writing, this is nothing to worry about. Editorial is a cyclical industry, and summer is traditionally one of the slowest times. ALTHOUGH … 

That doesn’t have to hold true for you. I’ve corresponded with two SEO writers this week who told me they were busier than ever. One said she had just returned from vacation and was positively swamped. So, it depends on your marketing ability too.

A new freelance marketplace opens for freelance writers — and other freelance professionals, eg, social media marketing consultants, graphic designers, virtual assistants, etc. — has made a splash on the web. I interviewed a member of their team to find out what they were all about and how freelance writers could benefit from their service. Really insightful. It’s one you’re definitely gonna wanna check out.

That post will hit your inbox in the morning, so subscribe if you haven’t already, ok? Now, to today’s listings.

One Place Where You Can Always Find Googobs of Freelance Writing Jobs

Every day, thousands of writing jobs are posted to freelance marketplace Upwork. It’s the largest online marketplace for freelancers, and is a major reason this freelancer was able to earn $20,000 in one month writing web content (yep, not a typo; five figures, not four).

And to be honest, I find it addicting scrolling through the jobs. It’s fun! You swear at some (really, THAT’S what you wanna pay for an “experienced” writer); and you drool over others (man if I landed that gig I’d be so busy I’d have to hire help). It’s freelancing in a nutshell!

Have a great week and good luck applying.
