Getting started with Freelancing is easy only when you have enough work in your hand, the problem with Freelance writing is there is no consistency in the job.

Moving on to freelance websites for finding writing work:
Fiverr is a popular micro jobs website, and getting started here is free. On this platform, you can create your profile, and list your offerings for writing jobs.
Since a lot of users scout this website to hire hidden gems, you might be lucky like many others to find a decent writing gig here. The best part, you can use your Fiverr profile as your personal link for others to hire you. The platform takes care of all the headaches of getting paid, and you have an option to change your writing price at any time.
A good idea is to set up your profile, and simply get a notification when someone is interested in offering you a writing job. I highly recommend you check out the profile of other high paying writers on this platform, to understand what works, and how you can make your profile look outstanding.
This is another active platform for writers to get writing gigs. This platform connects businesses with freelancers, and have a decent pool of writers.
There are a ton of existing remote working writing gigs available on the platform, you can instantly apply for them. Make sure to spend a little time making your profile stand out.
3. ProBlogger Job Board
Problogger charges $50 from a client to post a job on their board, so you can be sure that the clients who post here will definitely hire someone. While
While UPwork clients generally post jobs and never look back, Problogger clients need high-quality writing and are looking for serious writers. I once landed a job on Problogger and was able to earn about $3,500 per month from it. The job lasted for 6 months, so make sure you apply only if you’re a serious writer who can write daily for several months.
Freelancer (previously GetAFreelancer) is a freelance job board that offers over 100 different available types of jobs for freelancers. IT, writing, programming, design and so much more – if you have the skill for it, Freelancer can help you find a client. Freelancer is great for writers to get started by providing massive jobs – some require over 500+ articles to be written!
Constant-Content is one of the premiere article marketplaces for serious freelance writers to make money online. Because Constant-Content is so mature, writers can demand top dollar for their articles (charging upward of $100+ each article!). Constant-Content has a strict editorial process but, the large marketplace and demand for writing make this marketplace one of the best.
UPWork is another main contender for major freelance job boards. Much like Freelancer, UPWork offers a wide variety of jobs that can easily be accomplished online. Although the pay isn’t always the best, the sheer amount of jobs available will always give you something to do.
Although highly overlooked, Craiglist is still one of the easiest to find freelancing writing jobs. Craigslist’s main appeal to network people within the local area but you’re not restricted to just your city – take a look around and see what you can find; thousands of companies and individuals post jobs for writing for blogs, articles, and websites.
Here are a few more websites:

Hello, Harsh ji.
The very good list you made for content writing. I am keenly desired towards writing, I applied on up work before 3 months ago but, there is no response are coming.pls, suggest me something to do get work from there.
In that case, you should do a few things:
1) Optimize your profile. Do some work for cheaper price so that your profile builds up with client recommendations.
2) Also try other freelancing networks like Freelancer.com and others.
Great post Harsh. Freelance writing is still an in-demand freelancing job. Probloggerjobs has some great writing gigs as well.
Sadly, Indians are barred from writing on Constant Content
I am regular reader of Shoutmeloud. It always shouts loudly to help the bloggers to find solutions.Very useful article for the freelance writers..I wanna give a try to the list of websites you have mentioned.. Really appreciated ur efforts for maintaining the blog in a long term and changed ur blog as one place to for all the blogging solutions…
Thanks dear, that was an educative piece of writing. I will check out some of them now.
They are good start of websites. However the content mills can be devastating where screening issues delay opportunities for start up writers.
I think other platforms like iwriters, inkedhubwriters, scripted, textbrokers etc. can make it to this list as easier targets to scoring up a few gigs that can help you grow your porfolio before scoring the tough links.
Nonethless, this was informative.
This is very good, I am looking forward to working with a good client.
Although I have been trying trying to get a writing gig all these while but all to no avail.
If anyone here can help,lets talk.
We are consuming about 100 articles a day from different levels of writers (for SEO, guest posting, putting on our own blogs and highly researched product review articles).
Few insights as a client –
1. When we pay per word, there is certain lack of accountability in the content and more often would seem like the words were put together just for the sake of meeting the content word count.
2. When we pay per article, we sometimes feel like the content could have been explained a bit better but since it was per article project it was cut short. .
After dealing with the confusion for few months here is what we came up with –
Pay per article, where the price depends on the range of words.
Lets say from 750-1000 words $XX , from 1000-1500 words XX and so on.
This way, the writer doesn’t stuff words and have room for putting only the words needed while still getting fairly paid for the effort and the quality is maintained for the sake of long term relationships and bulk work.
That’s brilliant. This is the same model I use whenever I hire any writer.
Thanks for adding value.
Good strategy. Being an experienced Content Writer, I too work with the same model. It puts more focus on the quality of words rather than the quantity. Good to know there are employers out there who think on the same lines.
iF you want to make money by writing Online, you need to brush up on your writing skills. It’s one of the most central factors to making good money. Set aside some time every day to practice your writing and get yourself a copy of Strunk and White and study it. Reading well-written books by contemporary authors is a great way to learn the difference between good writing and bad writing.
Hello, it was a nice write up there. But how about offering your services on your personalized portfolio website independently, I think it pays more. Like this, you will source your clients your self, may be on social media, and receive payments directly, no commission, nothing!
These days, freelancing websites are getting saturated, and due to the level of competition therein, you only get to sell your services for low amounts, unlike when you are selling directly.
I have been working as a content writer for over 6 years, in between tried to get some assignments from service marketplaces, however, i did not get any. The reasons were clear, either the clients were paying less or there were many writers to accept any payment for their work. On freelance sites, morality of both is a big issue. I hope you understand what I want to say.
Thanks for this post.
You can write. You know you may make money. It’s just putting both end together that’s so difficult to determine.
You have demonstrate how to carefully turn that freelance wish into a profitable job and how to get started on freelance writing from commence to surface finish, your complete roadmap. Thanks for sharing ..
