10 Ways to Find Paid Writing Jobs Online

So you’ve graduated from college with the aim of being a writer and discovered that full-time writing jobs aren’t exactly falling from the sky. Or perhaps you’ve decided to make a change in your professional life and would like to give blogging or article writing a whirl. Whatever the case, knowing how and where to find paid online writing jobs can be tricky at first. Fortunately, we are here to help.

 

One thing about online writing is that it’s a global market, which means you’ll be competing with workers from around the world, some even offering their services for $1 or less per hour. Do not try to compete with writing mills in developing countries. They have the low-price advantage. Keep your own advantages in mind and highlight your skills, education, and experience when seeking remote work. Use your uniqueness to find well-paid work that is suited to you.

 

Where To Find Online Writing Gigs

Craigslist: International, but localised, craigslist can lead to some interesting and well-paid work. It can also be full of ads seeking free work or unpaid internships that “pay” in the form of “valuable experience.” Don’t cheapen your craft by providing free labour so that someone else can make money or realise their dream. Also, beware of scams.

Gumtree: The number 1 classifieds site in the UK, as well as Australia, Singapore, and South Africa. The same rules that apply to craigslist also apply here.

 

LinkedIn: The largest and most established profession-oriented social media site, LinkedIn is not just a place to upload your CV and add friends you already have on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. LinkedIn Jobs lets you search for all sorts of work, including online writing jobs.

 

 

oDesk: An online remote working platform where “buyers” (clients) connect with freelancers for hourly or fixed-rate jobs doing just about anything under the sun. Most jobs are very low-paid, but some buyers are looking for quality work and are willing to pay for it. One advantage is that payment for hourly jobs is guaranteed, though for fixed-rate jobs it is not. oDesk has its own payment system and strict rules about how to use its service, which takes 10% of everything you earn.

 

Elance: Similar to oDesk (and now owned by the same corporation) Elance is slightly slicker and generally features somewhat better paying jobs. It also takes a smaller percentage of the freelancer’s earnings (6.75% - 8.75%). Both fixed rate and hourly jobs are guaranteed, although outstanding payments on fixed rate jobs can take a while to resolve.

 

The jobs section: While it may sound old fashioned, the jobs or “help wanted” section of your favourite newspaper is a tried and true method of finding employment opportunities. It may not be chock full of online writing gigs, but it’s always worth a shot.

Social networks: Ask around on Facebook, Google+, etc. People usually like to share knowledge and lend their friends a helping hand. The bigger your social network, the greater the chances you’ll find something.

 

Journalism Jobs: This specialised classified site has plenty of announcements for online journalism, article writing, blogging, and editing jobs, including many full-time positions.

 

Pro Blogger: The job feed section of problogger.net publishes a few listings each day for bloggers, journalists, editors, and other writing-related jobs.

 

Freelance Writing Jobs: Every day or so, the Writing Gigs section posts job links from various sources in blog article form. The links are arranged in convenient categories such as copywriting, blogging, content writing, proofreading/editing, technical writing, and more.
