What is a Good Freelance Writing Income?
Every so often I receive an email asking me how much money freelance writers earn. Of course, this is a difficult question to answer because there is no standard. In other words, every freelance writer earns a different amount of money. Some do quite well, while others are still getting their feet wet and trying to increase their income.
In my opinion, there is no way to say what a â€œgoodâ€ freelance writing income looks like. You may feel that good is $1k/month if you are only working part-time. But those who are full-time may feel that anything less than $5k/month is unacceptable. If you are going to be a freelance writer you have to make your own income goals.
If you have income goals it does no matter what anybody else thinks. My freelance writing income makes me happy, and you should do what you can to get the same satisfaction from your career.
One thing is for sure: you are not going to reach all of your freelance writing income goals in a matter of a few weeks. I only earned $52 during my first month as a freelance writer. It wasnâ€™t until three months into my career that I began to realize just how much money could be made. You have to set both short and long term income related goals, and then work as hard as you can to reach them.
When somebody asks what a good freelance writing income is, I always fire back with a question of my own: what are you income related goals? The great thing about being a freelance writer is that you control your income. Set your own goals based on what you want to accomplish.Â
