Career-driven freelance writers—or anyone who desires to earn money with their writing skills—can find plenty of full-time, part-time, and project-based gigs at Online-Writing-Jobs.com (OWJ), a searchable jobsite for independent writers.
Brian Scott, a freelance writer since 1996, founded the site in 2006. Each weekday, M-F, he researches and handpicks new freelance writing jobs and adds them to the site. On any given day writers can find 10-15 new writing jobs that pay decent to competitive rates to perform a variety of services for clients, such as:
Copywriting: writing marketing copy for brochures, landing pages, advertisements, etc. to help companies increase their sales;
Blogging: writing a series of long or short-form posts or listicles for clients in specific industries to engage readers and drive website traffic;
Content writing (or SEO writing): writing optimized digital content for clients who want to drive traffic to their sites organically.
Magazine writing: writing informative feature articles or service pieces for editors of digital and print publications;
Technical writing: writing instructional manuals for product manufacturers and technology developers who need to simplify tech jargon into everyday language for a consumer audience; and
Proofreading: reviewing and correcting grammatical errors in manuscripts, scholarly papers, or website copy for publishers.
Because Online-Writing-Jobs lets users narrow their search according to specialty, job-type, pay rate, and employment type, writers can find opportunities most ideal to their interests, skillsets, and work schedule. Using the site’s intuitive search box, writers can pinpoint topics or industries of interest to write about for clients.
Research studies reveal an increasing trend of semi-retired Baby Boomers, college students, and even full-time/part-time staff workers driving the growth of the so-called “gig economy”—forms of accessible contract, independent, 1099 service-oriented gigs that let individuals earn income in their spare time or even as a full-time business.
According to Scott, “Freelance writing has become a staple of the growing gig economy because paid writing gigs are highly accessible with an Internet connection and individuals can work when they want and where they want—typically from home or a remote location.”
To make it easier to stay current with new jobs, writers can subscribe to Scott’s free daily digest of job alerts (http://bit.ly/briansjobalerts), which he emails to subscribers each weekday.
Online-Writing-Jobs will be celebrating 10 years of service November 2016.
