High Quantity, Average Pay equals Great Freelance Writing Jobs

Just like every freelance writer, you are probably most interested in high paying jobs that are fun to work on. For instance, I have completed 1,500 word feature articles on various sporting events for close to $1,000. Unfortunately, these jobs come around only so often. Of course, as you grow your freelance writing career, they are sure to become more and more common.

The question is: what are you going to do until you can build up a decent amount of high paying work? For me, chasing high quantity, average paying projects is the way to go. As you can imagine, “high quantity” and “average pay” means something different to every freelance writer. Generally speaking, it depends on what stage of your career you are in, how fast you work, and what you currently charge clients.

I recently picked up a job that I would describe as high quantity with average pay. I am being paid $250 per week for five articles per day of 250 to 300 words. This is not a large project by any means, and some may even see it as a time waster. But for me, it works out to an extra $1,000 per month for a relatively small amount of work.

If you are searching for jobs that fit these criteria, make sure that you are very careful. You do not want to accept a job that requires 100 articles per month for a total pay of $200. If you do, you will find out soon enough that you are not spending your time wisely. It is always important to breakdown any project offer that you receive. By break down I mean find out how much time you will have to put in, and what per hour rate you will be able to earn. This will give you an answer as to whether or not you should accept the project.

Until you start to consistently reel in high paying regular jobs, you may want to consider those that are high quantity with average pay.
