How to become a professional freelance writer for hire


If you want to become a professional freelance writer for hire there are a few steps you must take.

  • Step 1:
  • The first is to pick the website where you want to dedicate your efforts. There are multiple websites out there that are fit for freelance writers and it is up you to evaluate which one is best suited for your needs. There are some that are best for beginners without any portfolio or live websites. These sites do not require you to showcase a portfolio save for the submission of a few writing samples which you can churn out in an hour or so. Others are best for long term free lance writing and are internationally based rather than domestic. These do require more of an existing online/writing presence and are better suited for those with experience in the field.

  • Step 2:
  • After you have picked the website where you want to dedicate the majority of your efforts you first need to familiarize yourself with their requirements. The requirements for each are different and before you can begin writing on their website you will need to read through the terms of the website and the process. For many of the more legitimate websites you will need to take a test on the requirements and policies and procedures for clients and contractors and the website before you are allowed to create a user profile and begin working on their site. This is to ensure that no one gets taken advantage of or takes advantage of others. Many of these tests are timed and you must carve out some uninterrupted time during your day to take the test.

  • Step 3:
  • Create your profile. After you have passed the test you will need to submit your application and wait in some cases for approval. Once you receive that approval you can begin the creation of your profile because you have been approved as a freelancer! When you create a profile this means submitting your personal information such as proof of address in some cases and your personal social security number or ID number for tax purposes. You will need to present some photo copies of your identification based on what is required or asked for by the company. You will want to submit your financial information as well so that you can start withdrawing your money once you begin earning. This process can take a few days or a couple of weeks so be patient at the start.
