When I sent my first few pitches out to potential clients around a year ago, I did not take the exercise seriously. I didn’t expect that anyone would actually want to hire me — someone who had absolutely no professional writing experience.
But I was wrong, and the fact is, you can start as a freelance writer with nothing more than an ability to write well. With that in mind, today I want to expose how many opportunities there are available to aspiring writers. All you need to do is look, and that is exactly what I hope I have proven in the video below.
Browsing the ProBlogger Job Board
For those of you who don’t know, I found my first two writing clients via the ProBlogger Job Board. I still work with them both today, and one of those ‘jobs’ in particular has led to an awesome position as the editor of the ManageWP blog.
I heartily recommend the ProBlogger Job Board as a source of work. So what I’ve done in the video below is take a close look at 10 recent listings, with my thoughts (both positive and negative) on each one. If you are new to freelance writing (or even if you’re not), you may find this really helpful.
Here are the listings featured in the video:
I’d love to know what you think about the video, and whether or not you agree with my opinions. Furthermore, if you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to ask them in the comments section.
Finally, if you found my video useful, you may want to get on the pre-launch list for my upcoming freelance writing guide. You’ll get early access to the guide as well as an exclusive discount!
