Is everybody becoming a Freelance Writer?

I enjoy reading internet marketing blogs that discuss how to make money online, build a business, etc. That being said, there is a trend that has been getting under my skin as of late. It seems as if more and more people are spreading the news about how easy it is to become a freelance writer. On one hand I agree that breaking into the business can be simple if you have the right skills and determination. But on the other hand, there are entirely too many people promoting the fact that anybody can make money as a “freelance writer.”

Through my research it appears that most of these people feel that being a freelance writer is nothing more than churning out cheap content for online clients. In my opinion, this does not make for a freelance writer. Sure, it is a form of writing and there is nothing wrong with it. But there are two things that bother me: 1. Many of these writers don’t care about their clients or the quality of their work. 2. They feel that their low quality content is the same as what every freelance writer offers. While there is no rule saying you must care about clients and offer quality work, it is something that most true freelance writers realize is very important. Secondly, there is a big difference between writing cheap keyword articles and offering professionally copywriting services. I think that most professional freelance writers will agree with this.

This post is not meant to scare people away from freelance writing or to talk down on others. But it is meant to show the difference between those who write low quality content on the cheap and those who offer professional copywriting services.

In the end, I am glad for anybody who can make a living as a freelance writer. If you truly care about your clients and the content you produce there is no denying that this is a career that can be lucrative and exciting.
