Online Writing Jobs - High-Paying Work for Writers

Online writing jobs ...

With the advent of the digital age, there are many online writing jobs that allow authors to work from home. In this article, we'll cover three of the best ways to earn an income as a writer online. Best of all, you can get started on one of these new careers with a small investment in time and training.

  • Become a Copywriter - this an excellent profession where you can make a lot of money. A decent copywriter can make upwards of $150 per hour, writing part time from their home. A copywriter composes sales letters for big companies that compel people to buy their products. It is a highly creative field and is also not that competitive—there is far more demand than there are writers who are trained to write copy. In this field, there is really no such thing as a struggling writer. Once you know what you're doing, you can command a high per-hour rate, but you can also get paid on the back end with a percentage of product sales. Since copywriting does not come naturally even though the skills are straight forward and easy to learn, you must go through training. The copywriting program I recommend is one that also has a placement service, so once you've completed the training, you're ready for your first job.
  • Another favorite occupation in our list of online writing jobs is working as a freelancer. This is a fun position that allows you to create your own hours and earn an excellent income. It's also a great way to build your platform and get your name out there. Once you start freelancing, you can expand your market by critiquing, consulting or even doing speaking engagements. This is something I recently started doing and I'm having the time of my life. Learn more about becoming a freelancer.

  • Last but not least in our list of top online writing jobs is writing resumes. You may think this is not a lucrative field, but actually, you can make as much as $150 per hour. You can cater to almost anyone who doesn't know how to properly write a resume or you can specialize in helping professionals revamp their resumes to attract high paying positions. With the way the economy is going more and more mid and high ranking professionals are losing their positions, so this could be a lucrative field. Best of all, you're not limited to working with people in your geographic area, since the internet can bring you customers from around the world.
