As a Writer, How Do You Find Writing Jobs?

When I discovered freelance writing, I decided I will try it out. So occasionally, I’d fall back on ghostwriting/freelance writing jobs. Please know that in freelance writing jobs, you can decide to have your name on the article as the author and still get paid. These are mostly for blog articles. But in ghostwriting jobs, you do not have that privilege. Your name will not be put in there.

For me, I stuck with ghostwriting jobs, as I could always make more money from it. 

So whenever I was so broke and I needed to make some really quick money, I would run to Nairaland literature section and look out for writing jobs. Most of these jobs were/are still very low paying jobs. But they are regular.

I noticed the pattern, that I could always run online and make some money with my writing skills. At some point, I even boasted to my friend then that I could never be too broke because I would always land me a ghostwriting job.

Why did I have this confidence? It was because I had seen that writing jobs are always available. And as at the time of writing this book, writing has become even more needed than before. Whenever I push out to get ghostwriting jobs, I always do get at least two or three jobs at a time.  Sometimes, more. There was a time I got six well-paying writing jobs in one day.

These days, I hardly market my services. All I do is position myself and I get clients.  Other time, old clients refer me to their friends and family.

The reason is, there are now so many online coaches who need materials for their coaching services. Some of them need E-books that they can sell. Also, small businesses that offer baking services, shampoo and soap making services, lose weight health products/services, etc now write e-books to guide their clients, or to teach others. There are those who write fiction just to entertain their audience. There are those who write memoirs to share their experiences with their audience.

According to the Netcraft 2018 Web Server Survey, as at sometime in August 2018, there were 1,805,260,010 (over 1.8 billion) blogs/websites and counting. True, a lot of them get no traffic, some are abandoned and some are just low key blogs used as personal diaries.

But if you look deeper, you’ll see that millions of these blogs are active. super active. These active and super active blogs, all over the internet, are always in need of fresh content. And this is where you come in.

The good news is that you no longer need to go on just one platform alone, to find writing jobs. You can find it anywhere, and make good money from it. It is for this reason, I have taken time out to write this e-book; and especially because some people have been asking for this.
