How To Start Freelance Writing With No Experience

How To Start Freelance Writing With No Experience

Let’s look at how to start freelance writing with no experience. I really think this is one of the quickest ways that you can start earning money online.

Check the end of this description for the links to all the resources.

I just made a video about automatically transcribing voice or video to text and in the past, I also did a video about doing speech-to-text.

Those are great because it means that you don’t need to be able to type to do this.

I recently read an article about getting freelance writing jobs and he talks about never writing before and in four years he still earned $120,000 doing it.

He made 90% of his money doing freelance blogging so I talk about that in the video.

To find niche topics that he could write about he made a list of all the things that he’d done in the past and all the experience he had then picked the ones he thought he could write about.

For each topic, he made an article or two so that he could show potential employers what he could do. He put those on a blog at WordPress.com which is hosted by them and free.

A lot of these websites don’t actually tell you the amount that they’re offering so I’ll give you an idea of the price that he sets:

Beginner – $20 to $30 an hour or 5 to 10 cents a word

Intermediate – $35 to $50 an hour or 15 to 20 cents a word

Expert – $50+ an hour or 25 to 50 cents a word.

It’ll take a little bit of time to make your profile, build it up with a few articles and take time to build up some clients and I recommend not starting too expensive at least until you have enough work.

I’ve got experience from the other side getting people to work for me and what I’ll normally do if I want someone continuously is to give a job to about five to eight people and then pick the best. That means it’s important to always do a good job because you don’t really know who’s going to be your next big client.
