As soon as you become a freelance writer and get an order, you should let your client know the way you would like to receive payments. Specify it, whether it will be Paypal, bank transfer/wire transfer, cheque or any other way convenient for you. This will allow clients to make appropriate arrangements on time. Moreover, this allows you and a client to discuss and come up with something that is convenient for both of you.

If you work for some freelance community, you usually receive your payments not from a client directly but from the company because they find clients for you. And they guarantee that you will receive your payments twice a month. In most cases the orders that are processed from the 1st to the 15th of the month are paid on the 1st to the 3rd of the next month, and the orders processed on the 16th and the 31st of the month will be paid on the 15th to the 18th of the next month. But different companies offer certain methods of payment, for example only Paypal or wire transfer. You should discuss it with the company before performing the first task.

How I became a freelance writer

Wednesday, March 24th, 2010

At first I thought my friends were joking telling me about a freelance writing job. I knew almost nothing about this profession although I graduated from the university with a diploma of an interpreter/translator. But in my case the word «almost» played the decisive role. «What I knew about it at that moment?» you may ask. Hmm…freelance writers should have excellent writing skills. Frankly speaking, I doubted whether I really had them. Yes, I wrote various essays at university, some articles for the newspaper when I was at school (my mom dreamed about it and I decided to come up to her expectations) and that’s all. Is it enough to become a writer who, as far as I knew, should be a creative person? My friends convinced me that online writing job was exactly what I was looking for. What was left for me when they all as one advised me to try? I fulfilled the necessary form, send some extracts of my writing and waited for the answer from the experienced essay writers.

Now I am an experienced freelance writer who knows all the nuances of this profession and may give you some pieces of advice. The first my advice- do not be afraid to practice something new, especially freelance writing. Try to master it and you will be satisfied with the results and your own achievements. 5 years ago I was feeling lack of worth in myself. I wanted to do something which can get me money but I wanted this profession to be interesting at the same time. Why didn’t I work as an interpreter? I got married right after graduating from the university and now I have 2 children who need me all the time. It was unreasonable to stay at home without earning money. And my friends saved me and my family thanks to the ad they accidentally cut a sign of at one of the Internet sites which offered freelance writer jobs.

If you have the Internet at home and are looking for work-at-home freelance writing opportunities, have writing skills and want to become successful at what you are doing – do not hesitate. Use your chance and who knows may be in a year or two we will become colleagues in the field of freelance writing.

Freelance writing — the job you dreamed about

Wednesday, March 24th, 2010

Just imagine. Morning. No alarm clock. No hurrying to the office you can not stand any more… no traffic jam and no boss who punishes you for being late again. Seems a dream for you? It may easily come true with freelance writing. You may work at home when you want (even at nights) and earn money for a living. You will be in demand, do the work you really like to and have time for your personal life. No jokes! Freelance writers enjoy such a life and you may become one of them if you want to. Many people around the world are essay writers, some are freelance writers who make extra money or even give up their regular job make a full-time career out of freelance writing.

This profession is good for those people who are educated, ambitious and have writing skills but are to busy with their kids and domestic responsibilities. Yes, I mean women, first of all. But the freelance writing opportunities are plentiful and there is really enough work for all. If you have original thinking, you will make a decent living from freelance writing jobs.

Being a freelance writer you are entitled to control and flexibility. You should have writing skills, I would even say a kind of passion for writing and an excellent command over the English language. Deadline is what limits you (not boss or your manager any more, just the deadline fixed by your client) and the Internet (high-speed Internet is preferred because time is your money) is what helps you. Consistency and sincerity are very crucial components in determining success as a freelance writer.
