Create an Etsy account (if you don't already have one), set your shop location and currency, choose a shop name, create a listing, set a payment method (how you want to be paid), and finally set a billing method (how you want to pay your Etsy fees).

How to become a freelance writer

In becoming a freelance writer:

1. Research the freelance writing industry

Before you start writing as a freelancer, it is essential to find out everything you can about the industry. Perhaps you’ve already started this step if you searched "How to become a freelance writer" and landed on this article. Visit the websites of established freelance writers and read their biographies, articles, blogs, and other content.

Many writers share helpful information about what it takes to be a freelance writer, how they manage their writing businesses, what their writing processes are, where they look for work and how they set their rates.

To learn more about how to get into freelance writing, you can browse opportunities on freelance writing job boards. That will give you an idea about what kind of jobs are available, what employers expect, and what current market wages look like.

2. Develop necessary business skills

Freelance writing is a business, and to succeed as a freelancer, you need good organizational and time management skills.

You should implement a set writing routine to work on your projects and have a clear system for keeping track of in-progress, completed, and pending projects. Additionally, you must keep track of sent and pending invoices, received payments, writing pitches, job applications, and client responses. Many writers also maintain a growing list of writing ideas so they never run out of topics to write about.

3. Ensure you have the tools of the trade

You will need a laptop or a desktop computer equipped with a writing program, a task management program, and photo-editing software since freelance writers often have to include images with their content.

It is important to set up a website to showcase your writing samples, a business email account, a phone, and a video conferencing account. You will also need a bank account and an online payment service account to receive remuneration from your clients.

4. Understand current writing conventions

There are different conventions to follow for different types of writing. In online writing, for instance, it is typical to include helpful links to other articles and use headlines and short paragraphs to make content easily scannable. The way you write and format a blog is different from how you would write and present an academic paper

You will need to know how to research an array of topics and cite your sources. It is also important to know how to catch readers' attention and write in a style that will keep them reading until the end.

5. Work on improving your writing skills

Even if you are a good writer, there is always room for improvement. Read extensively. You can learn a lot about sentence construction, vocabulary, avoiding fillers, including evocative details, and much more from reading other people's writing. Read things relevant to your professional niche, but also read widely outside of it.

Write constantly and read your writing aloud. The more you practice, the more you will improve.

6. Decide on a writing niche

As a freelance writer, you can pursue business writing, speech writing, video scriptwriting, newsletter writing, copywriting, technical writing, journalism, and more. You can write about pets, babies, antiques, comics, health products, food, art, architecture, science—the possibilities are endless. But pick one or two topics that catch your interest and concentrate on those first.

Once you get established as a freelance writer and are better able to manage your time, you can expand the scope of your content production to other niches.

7. Create a writing portfolio

A well-presented and current writing portfolio is extremely important for your freelance writing business. Set up a professional website where you can upload and stylishly present your work samples. Depending on your preference and knowledge, you can include articles in a specific niche or content covering a variety of subjects.

If you don't have professionally published clips, write the type of content potential clients will want to commission and showcase it on your website. You can also start a blog to compile clips about the topics that interest you.

8. Market your writing

Marketing your writing services is an essential component of being a freelance writer. Having a professional website and a blog will help with your marketing efforts, and creating content regularly will improve your ranking in search engine results.

On your website, include a page detailing the writing services you offer, a page informing clients who you are and how you are qualified to help them, a portfolio with your writing samples, and a contact page to make it easy for clients to get in touch with you.

You can use social media and business networking sites to market your services by posting links to your latest published articles or blogs and providing updates on your availability. Social media also helps you stay updated on industry developments and job opportunities. You might also consider writing guest posts for other writers or hosting their writing on your site.

9. Find freelance writing jobs

You will find many freelance writing jobs online. Visit job boards that update their listings daily and look for work that seems interesting and offers decent pay. Also, look for jobs on business networking sites and social media. Additionally, you can pitch articles to magazines and online journals and even send cold pitches to companies.

Before submitting your job applications or article pitches, spend some time researching the companies. It is important to check if they hire freelance writers regularly and to discern how writers have rated working with them. Also, review the content on their websites to get a better idea of their writing requirements. Customize each application to the job’s requirements and include the appropriate writing samples.

3. Start your blog 

A blog is a regularly updated website or web page, typically one run by an individual or small group, that is written in an informal or conversational style.

How to make money from blogging

  1. Use affiliate marketing on your blog.
  2. Add banner adverts to your website. 
  3. Write advertorials and sponsored content.
  4. Charge for sponsored social media posts. 
  5. Write guest blog posts for media outlets. 
  6. Work with an agency to build your blog. 
  7. Sell digital products on your blog.

1.Use affiliate marketing on your blog :

Affiliate marketing works by adding tracked affiliate links into the text of your blog. You can make a small commission every time a reader clicks through to a site you recommend and makes a purchase. The links will lead readers to the website of a brand, and the money you receive is to say 'thanks' for sending some of your lovely readers to their site. Almost all online eCommerce websites have an affiliate program of some sort, like AmazonASOS, and Apple. Sign up to Affiliate Window – a huge affiliate network where you can promote thousands of well-known brands and services from around the world.

2.Add banner adverts to your website

As a more visual way of advertising, you can sell banner advertising space on your blog page to brands that relate to your readers.

Adverts can be placed anywhere, but they're commonly found across the top of blog pages or in the sidebar.

You can earn income in one of two ways. CPC (cost per click) means you'll get a set payment for every reader who clicks the advert, while CPM (cost per thousand) means you'll negotiate a set payment for every 1,000 ‘impressions’ the ad gets.

With the growth of AdBlocker plugins, the CPC and CPM can be below, but it does depend on your industry, and there's little harm in trying them out.

A quick way to get started is creating an account with Google Adsense or exotic.

3.Write advertorials and sponsored content

According to the bloggers we spoke to, one of the best ways of monetizing a blog is through offering sponsored content opportunities (or advertorials). These are essentially adverts in the form of a paid-for article or blog post.

As an example, if Adidas brings out a new swimwear line and you have a blog on women’s sportswear, they might offer to pay you to write an article about their range. You may also be able to add some affiliate links on top.

This monetization method usually works best when you have a strong niche audience. Once you’ve grown your readership, brands will often approach you to discuss sponsored posts.

4.The charge for sponsored social media posts

If you have a strong social media presence, you’ll be very attractive to brands. Some people make their entire blogging income through sponsored posts on social media. You can charge per post/re-post and the fees can be surprisingly high.

You’ll just have to work hard on building your followers first – your 'social proof' (or how many people follow you on social media) is seen by brands as evidence that readers will like what you post about them, too.

5.Write guest blog posts for media

Occasionally, members of the press (or even brands who have a blog of their own) will reach out to you if you’re an authority on a certain topic, asking you to make a little cameo appearance on their website.

If you’re particularly knowledgeable on cooking on a budget, for example, a newspaper might get in touch and ask you to contribute some budget-friendly recipes to their cooking magazine.

Don't be shy in pitching ideas to publications either – if editors don't know who you are, a quick email intro is a great way of getting your blog's name out there.

6.Work with an agency to build your blog.

Believe it or not, blogging's become so popular in the advertising world that there are now agencies exclusively catered to promoting bloggers to big brands. Working with an agency can be super lucrative and it offers you security, but you’ll need to have a pretty decent following to be scooped up in the first place. Agency fees are also incredibly high, meaning only the biggest brands will be able to afford to work with you, and smaller independent ones will be scared off. Depending on the kind of blogging business you're aiming for, this may or not work to your advantage – to use the example of ethical fashion blogging again, agency fees might prevent you from working with the small independent designers you want to promote.

7.Sell digital products on your blog

If you have skills or advice to offer, another option is to charge a fee for access to eBooks, video tutorials, courses, or workshops.

To make this option work, you need to be able to show you’re extremely good at what you do, or that your content has proven to be incredibly valuable. This isn't easy.

It can be pretty difficult to convince online communities to pay up, as there's a tendency for people to think everything online should be free of charge. Worth a try though, right?

4. Post-YouTube videos

You can make money on YouTube through the following features:

• Advertising revenue: Get ad revenue from the display, overlay, and video ads.

• Channel memberships: Your members make recurring monthly payments in exchange for special perks that you offer.

• Merch shelf: Your fans can browse and buy official branded merchandise that’s showcased on your watch pages.

• Super Chat & Super Stickers: Your fans pay to get their messages highlighted in chat streams.

• YouTube Premium Revenue: Get part of a YouTube Premium subscriber’s subscription fee when they watch your content

Once you've been accepted into the YouTube Partner Program, you may get access to these monetization features:

Keep in mind that each feature has its requirements. Some features may not be available to you due to local legal requirements.

Ad revenue: Be at least 18 years old, or have a legal guardian older than 18 years of age who can handle your payments via AdSense.

Channel memberships: Be at least 18 years old.

Have more than 1,000 subscribers.

Merch shelf: Be at least 18 years old.

Have more than 10,000 subscribers.

Super Chat & Super Stickers: Be at least 18 years old.

Live in a country/region where Super Chat is available.

YouTube Premium revenue: Create content watched by a viewer who is a YouTube Premium subscriber.

Each feature has its own set of eligibility requirements on top of subscriber and view count requirements. If our reviewers believe that your channel or video is not eligible, specific features may not be available. These extra thresholds exist for two main reasons. The most important one is that we have to meet legal requirements in every area where the feature is available. Then, because we want to reward good creators, we need to make sure we have enough context on your channel. Generally, this context means we need more content to look at.

Keep in mind that we constantly review channels to make sure your content is in line with our policies.

5. Affiliate marketing 

This is a marketing arrangement by which an online retailer pays commission to an external website for traffic or sales generated from its referrals.

"most of my earnings are from affiliate marketing, direct ad sales, and sponsored posts"

People make 6 figures from doing affiliate marketing and with the right strategy, you’ll scale through everything.

Affiliate marketing is a type of performance-based marketing in which a business rewards one or more affiliates for each visitor or customer brought by the affiliate's marketing efforts.

Only some consider the network part of the affiliate marketing equation. However, I believe that an affiliate marketing guide needs to include networks, because, in many cases, a network works as an intermediary between the affiliate and the merchant.

While you could technically promote someone else’s course and arrange a direct revenue share with them, letting a network such as ClickBank or Commission Junction handle the payment and product delivery puts a more serious note on your affiliate marketing.

When someone clicks that link, a small file called a cookie gets stored on their device.

An affiliate cookie does two things:

  • It helps the merchant attribute the sale back to the right person;
  • It (usually) holds an expiration date, so you get paid even if the buyer delays their purchase.

Here’s an example of how this works.

Imagine that a reader visits your post about the best winter jackets. They click on one of your affiliate links, leading them to a product on Amazon.

But they realized they have to pick up their daughter from school. So they leave their house, pick up their daughter, have dinner, and then finally go back to Amazon where they find the product again.

Since they’re already shopping on Amazon, they decide to purchase some ski gear too.

Here’s the good news. Earlier, they clicked on your affiliate link and a cookie was stored on their device. Because Amazon has a 24-hour cookie duration, you get compensated for both the winter jacket and ski gear—even though you didn’t promote the latter.
