Where are the High Paying Freelance Writing Gigs?

Time after time I receive emails from struggling freelance writers asking where they can turn for high paying gigs. As you can imagine this is a difficult question to answer. There is so much that goes into this inquiry that it would be impossible to list all of the possibilities.

There is no easy way to answer the question of where to find high paying gigs. When I am asked this question I almost always respond with some questions of my own: what does high paying mean to you? What type of projects are you most interested in? What type of marketing are you currently doing? What audience are you targeting? These are all questions that need to be answered before you can determine where to find high paying jobs.

A lot of my highest paying jobs have come to me through referrals. In other words, my clients pass my name along to others. In the end the result is the ability to land a new client without having to market my services. While this will be something you can rely on in the future, new freelance writers have yet to establish themselves so this is not possible for the time being.

High paying freelance writing gigs are all over the place. I work with “one man shows” who pay $.50/word, as well as large companies that pay twice as much. You need to remember two things:  1. there are clients of all types in every industry that are willing to pay your rates. 2. You set your rates. Know how much money you want to earn, and then ask for this when negotiating with potential clients. This gives you the chance to turn any client into one that is high paying.

Believe me, there are tens of thousands of high paying freelance writing gigs out there. They are not going to fall into your lap in most cases. Instead, you have to go out and find them. Once you get used to landing high paying clients you will find it easier to continue this trend as your freelance writing career grows.
