Freelance Jobs, Target these Industries
There are many benefits of working as a freelancer, such as the ability to set your own hours and the lack of a commute to an office. At the same time, there are some issues to be aware of. While many new freelance writers worry about finding enough work, there are plenty of industries that pay well:
Blogging in general is not a “niche” freelance job as every man, woman, child and even some dogs can create a blog and fill it out with content. However, the majority of us have a specialized subject upon which we can create content.
Personally, having been involved in the online gaming industry for more than a decade, I create content about how I like to play online bingo, sports betting and online casino games. I’ve worked for various sites, such as Butlers Bingo. Once you find what you are passionate and knowledgeable about the money is easier to find.
Over the years, I haven been approached to write travel related pieces while traveling to a variety of destinations. Unfortunately, snaring these types of roles does involve hard work and collecting the right contacts at the right times.
You will need to create a travel content portfolio comprised of your own travels. Upon doing so, you will have something to show potential clients.
Although accountants generally have this area taken care of, there is a niche market for freelancers to make money in bookkeeping roles. In addition to directly reaching out to clients in this industry, you have other options such as PeoplePerHour.com and Freelancer.com.
Note: this may not be related to writing, but it will give you the chance to earn money as your writing career takes off.
Although programming in general is not a niche role, the top programmers typically have an area in which they excel. If you can create written content then you may have the potential to create computer programs. There are many free online tutorials on getting started. From there, all it takes is a little bit of time and experience.
If writing is your passion, there are many industries to target. Along the way, don’t be afraid to branch out and earn money in other ways.
