Just because you call yourself a freelance writer does not mean you have the ability to do it all. While there are some writing jobs that are not meant for everyone, there are plenty of other gigs that you can try your hands on. You would be surprised to hear about the number of jobs that you can pursue as a freelance writer. Take a look at the following few freelancing jobs in the field of writing that you could consider pursuing for a successful career ahead:
Copywriters are considered as one of the best freelance categories in the field of writing. The responsibility of a copywriter is to write stuff on the basis of sales and marketing. A copywriter has a higher demand than other forms of writers. Although very few people know about this category of writing, almost all professionals know about this line of work. Corporate sectors prefer freelancers who can copy-write more than freelancers who can produce an average form of work.
Are you a bilingual or a multilingual? If you answered yes, then this category is for you. Translators are given a piece of work in another language and they are required to use their skills for translating it into a desired language keeping a consistent flow of quality.
- Technical Writers
The world is moving ahead at a speed of light, and with all the technological advancements in the market, there is an increasing need for the technical writers. This category of writers is responsible for typing out manuals and technical pieces of work for the industries and technological corporations.
- Web Content Writers
Web content writers are responsible for generating content for different websites including descriptions about the company, their services, their products and portfolios. Most of the web content is supposed to be informative and targeted to attract customers to a specific brand. If you think you have the ability to attract customers and clients using just the power of your words then you can become a web content writer.
- Assignments Writer
If you have a deep knowledge and understanding of any academic field or subject, you can share it with those (students, mainly) who require assignment writing help. Believe it or not, there are many learners who lack the skills and seek expert writers to do the job for them.
- Audio-Video Writers
This category is relatively new that deals with a writer receiving a special audio clip and being requested to write all about it. Sometimes, these speech clips can also be replaced with video clips. In either case, the freelance writers have to take a small piece of audio and generate content about it to a desired length.
- Story Writers
This category is one of the most creative categories when it comes to freelance writing. As a storywriter, you are required to generate a fictional piece of work around a topic. For example, if a company works as a muscle car company, they might ask you to make up a story about a customer who bought and had a great experience with their muscle cars.
- Review Writers
This is one of the comparatively knowledgeable categories of freelance writers. Review writers are normally expected to write reviews on different products, movies and places defining their experience with the service. Although this category pays less, it is a fun and less extensive task to do.
Bloggers are another common type of freelance writers. Bloggers normally are expected to have none to minimal experience but are required to write a piece for a specific blog daily. These writers are generally not paid so much but have a great experience when it comes to writing about a specific category and for a specific brand.
