Finding Freelance Writing Markets

Being an excellent writer will not do you any good if you have no clue on where to find work. You need to decide what markets you are most interested in. When it comes to finding freelance writing markets, there are several market options that you will want to consider.

1. Get in touch directly with corporations both large and small. There are tens of thousands of companies in the United States that are in need of writers. Sure, some of them have people on staff that can help, but this is not always the case. Believe it or not, many Fortune 500 companies use freelance writers from time to time. And this definitely holds true for smaller operations that cannot afford to hire a full-time writer. 

2. Advertising agencies can supply you with a lot of work. To get started within this market, contact agencies in your local area; this will give you a leg up on the competition from the start. Tell the person in charge that you are a freelance writer, and that you would be more than happy to work with them on any projects that they have coming up. It can be difficult to get your foot in the door, but once you do, make sure that you do a good job. From there, you will be sure to get the first call anytime a new project comes into play. I have only worked with a couple of advertising agencies, but anytime they get a new client I usually get a phone call.

3. Online freelance writing is very popular. Webmasters are always looking for writers to provide them with fresh content. After all, search engines love new, unique content. You may not get paid the best rates working online, but the money can add up. Of course, bigger companies also look for web writers as well.

These are three common freelance writing markets to tap into. There are others including but not limited to public relations agencies, government organizations, and non-profits. You may want to look into some of these markets as well. Once you begin to call on the above markets, you will get a better feel for what niche you want to concentrate on.
