Simple Tricks For Students Looking For Freelance Content Writing Jobs

Freelance content writing is an excellent way for students to earn a little extra cash while they are in school, because the jobs can usually be taken on a per assignment basis, which means students can take as few or as many jobs as they can handle. One can’t, however, simply jump into this kind of work, so we’ve come up with a few simple tricks you should know about finding great content writing jobs:

Create a basic online profile

Start by finding a reliable freelance services website and creating a basic profile. There is usually no cost and it’s good to get ball rolling. Start by listing your services, indicating your specialty areas, and describing the kind of work for which you are looking.

Research some competitors

Now, it’s time to research a few of your competitors’ profiles to see the sort of things they communicate in their profiles. Don’t steal information but generate a few good ideas based on the most successful profiles. You can usually find out how well someone does in this line of work by reviewing their work history.

Update and improve your profile

Take some of the features you like about other profiles and make updates to your own. You might notice that most of the best profiles are clear and direct with the information presented. Those profiles will likely also have some samples attached to an online portfolio. Since you are just getting started you probably don’t have content to add, but you can always write some short works to post in order to improve your chances of getting hired.

Start submitting bid proposals

Now get writing and submitting those bid proposals. This is very important and shouldn’t be taken lightly. You need to remind yourself that clients usually post projects because they have specific needs. Be sure you address these needs in your proposal and don’t simply submit generic bids. While it’s good to create a template of your basic skills and expertise, it’s important that you cater each proposal to the client.

Be persistent but stay patient

With little experience you probably won’t land many jobs when you are first getting started. This is normal and shouldn’t bring you down in any way. Stay persistent and keep submitting those proposals. With some patience you will soon find that there are plenty of opportunities out there and the perfect one might be just one more bid away.
