I Want to Work for One of the Online UK Freelance Writing Agencies


In today’s world, where you live doesn’t dictate where you work. Just ask anyone who makes a living doing freelance work from home. It certainly has its perks. The negative upsides include: no rush hour traffic, no dress code, no evil bosses or two-faced colleagues. There is nothing to miss there. The sky's the limit for the positive upsides, too.  By setting your own deadlines and milestones your portfolio will grow quickly, and you could also argue that being in a comfortable environment will increase the quality of your work.

Freelance writers run the gamut from professional journalists to content writers to bloggers or those who feel the need to make their opinion known. It goes without saying that those who have a background or a degree in journalism with relevant experience can command higher rates than others without that pedigree, but there is work available for anyone who loves to write,you just need to know where to look.

  • Start your search engines
  • To the surprise of no one, the popularity of freelance writing has exploded with the rise of online forums and the world’s addiction to content and information.

    With that in mind, a simple search using the words ‘freelance writing’ typed into the search engine of your choice will provide numerous options.

    If you are one of those people who doesn’t believe everything they read online, ask around. Consult friends or other writers about their experiences with writing online. Word of mouth was, is, and always will be your best reference.

  • Keep an open mind
  • Although an online writing agency may have a brick-and-mortar residence in a certain country (for the purposes of this article the UK), unless you are worried about a poor exchange rate the agency’s whereabouts should not concern you.

    An agency located in a different part of the world may also make you a more attractive candidate for hire based on your language or skill set.

  • Freelance doesn’t equate to easy work
  • Sure, it’s great hanging out at home in your slippers and pj’s, but if you want to make a living through freelance work, you better have self-discipline.

    There are plenty of people who think that freelance writing is as easy as consulting, where you can get away with charging clients an absurd amount of money for doing nothing. Not true. Freelancers just starting out must bid low in order to compete with more experienced writers, and becoming a successful freelancer requires a full-time job state of mind.
