My last post about 13 Freelance Writing Job Websites was so well received by my readers, that I decided to double this up with more resources.
I’ve had various readers suggest some more sites they found useful in the comment section and have gone onto a hunt to score even more great freelance writing job sites. The result is what you’ll find here in this post. Combined with my formerly mention post this should give you ample of opportunities to find work as a freelance writer.
Triond allows writers to submit articles under many topics. Registration is free and once your article is in their database they will submit it to their network of websites as well as affiliated sites. Those articles who make it and get published will earn a 50 % share of the revenue generated by their content the previous month.
Ultimately this could lead to a nice residual income over time since the articles are there indefinitely.
oDesk is an online outsourcing network for all kinds of professionals. Whether you are a programmer, web designer of freelance writer, there are plenty of job offers right now.
I joined this network after a recommendation by Michelle and already scored my first job yesterday. The site does look promising with some decent job offers money wise.
The only draw back I have found again is the fact that too many writers trying to undermine the experienced crowd by offering hourly rates of $ 2.
Sometimes I wish that the more reputable networks only accept freelance professionals who work for a decent rate in order to keep the industry intact.
BizReef is a new online marketplace that offers free advertising for business professionals, it basically connects providers with buyers. What this means for freelance writers is that they can post their online portfolio free of charge in order to attract some jobs.
There are also job offers that one can bid on. Personally I don’t know much about the company since I only found out about them the other day. Since it is free, it might be worth checking out. Update: BizReef has now a new policy in which freelancers have to actually bid a minimum of $2 for the first bid without guarantees of receiving the job. With every bid, the actual price rises.
Blogger Jobs is a job website mainly aimed at bloggers. Unfortunately the site isn’t updated that regularly so you will need to stay put to snatch a good job.
Editor & Publisher Jobs lets you search for all kinds of jobs not limited to writing. A quick search on writing revealed some potential for spending more time and sorting through the information and job offers.
The site is well established and you can register for free and post your resume.
Online Writing Jobs is a job data bank that is geared toward freelance writers. You can choose between high paying and low paying freelance writing jobs.
Sun Oasis also provides a regular update on freelance writing jobs. Some are similar as on Pro Blogger and others similar sites that display ads, but then there are also individual ads which you will find with a bit of digging.
All Freelance Writing is Jennifer Mattern’s personal blog that also features a range of freelance writing resources and job updates. It is well worth checking out for freelance writers.
Looking at the combined amount of freelance writing job resources you will have a very good chance of getting regular writing work.
It does take a bit of time to filter through all the information and one could easily become overloaded with writing information.
I think the secret here is to go with what feels right for you at this point in your life and then move ahead from there. I sincerely hope that all these freelance writing job sites will bring you some regular work and would love to hear from anybody who either got some work because of these two articles, or found their calling.
