If you’re looking for writing jobs online, there’s a good chance you’re sifting through a pile of junk.
Does this sound familiar? You search for writing jobs and freelance work online and turn up stuff like:
- Blogging or writing assignments for less than $50
- The promise of exposure to a non-existent audience of potential clients in exchange for your well-crafted words
- A racket to get hundreds of freelancers to audition by writing a “test” post
- Offers to write for free until a “paid” opportunity opens up
If you’re using made-for-the-masses sites like Craigslist, Indeed, and Upwork to find writing jobs, you’ll have to sort through a lot of rotten apples to find work that pays pro rates.
But not all places that publish writing jobs are filled with rotten leads and low-paying work. In fact, if you know where to look (like the Junk-Free Job Board inside the Freelance Writers Den) you can find great clients that pay pro rates.
