Freelance writing money is one subject that many prospective freelance writers want to know about. I’ll warn you! This isn’t your average case study on freelance writing. In this post, I’ll go over how I went from $15 an hour to $100, why I highly recommend not pricing your fees on an hourly basis and the different types of writing you can do.
Many writers will tell you to stay clear of freelance writing sites.
- Low paid jobs
- Clients who don’t value your time
- You could earn more elsewhere
Guess what? You get that on many job boards.
I’ve seen very low paid jobs on well-known sites, so dont let that put you off.
Want to know something different about freelance sites?
- There’s well paid jobs out there
- Clients who value your experience and time
- An opportunity to build your knowledge in a niche and learn new skill
One thing that I’m sure puts many off working from home is the thought of not making a consistent income from freelance writing. I used to be one of those people!
Two years ago, I was unemployed, my confidence was at all time low, and I was struggling with depression and anxiety. I had two choices; I had the opportunity to undertake work experience in a local retail store (which was unpaid) or I could follow my ambitions and take a leap of faith into becoming a freelance writer.
Luckily, I chose the latter!
