1 Writing from home for other people
There are really lots of people who need quality articles daily and they are ready to pay you good money for this. And don’t worry that you are a complete newbie, especially if you are a native English speaker. You would be just amazed by how many non-English guys and gals offer articles in this language. Native speakers have big natural advantage here. Also, everyone has to start from anywhere right? And here are some nice places, where you can offer your services as a copywriter:
A good place to find your first clients are freelance sites or some big online business forums where millions of people around the world buy and sell personal services to each other. Just register for free there and make an offer for a posted task of your choice:
IWRITER – One of the best places for writers, a site 100% dedicated to writing. I hire people on a regular basis from there so there is some turnover going on. Just follow the link, create a free account there, and catch an already posted project.
Freelancer – This is the biggest freelance site in the world, you make an offer for already posted jobs and the author of the job decides to whom to grand the work. The site is not only for writing but also you can get paid for many other types of work there.
