If you are looking to be an excellent and successful article writer there are a few aspects that you need to take into consideration before you actually get started. Anyone can be an article writer, and anyone can write words on a piece of paper, but in order to be an excellent article writer, you need to have an edge over others – something that will set you above the rest. If you can do this, then you can expect to have an influx in some much needed work!

One of the aspects that you need to take into consideration is that when you are getting into the writing world and you are a beginner article writer, you need to choose your category and projects carefully and wisely. Needless to say, you can make enough money in freelance writing world, as long as you know where to find the work and how to do it as per the expectations of your buyers. Try taking a workshop of some sort on article writing and brush up on your writing skills, from there you can find your own technique and your personal edge as an article writer.

When it comes to actually looking for work once you feel you are strong enough as an article writer, you want to look online and find a website that will allow you to search for various freelance writing jobs, such Elance, Guru, GetAFreelancer etc. From there, you can create your own profile and work with clients that are looking to get some writing work done.

Be sure that as a new article writer, you are not overloading yourself with too much work or work that is too difficult or out of your expertise and/or niche. The best thing you want to do, is start out small, with a small workload so that you know what you can handle at first. As most of these websites have feedback and rating system so it is always better to get some excellent feedbacks and ratings for your work that will act as your testimonials. As a first time article writer, you want to find your writing speed and your niche, write about what you know, or write articles that are going to be easier to research, do not try your hands on projects that are out of your expertise, knowledge or capacity.

Writing can be a rewarding job but oftentimes it may be time consuming and challenging. So, if you feel that you have always loved writing, and you want to be an official article writer, and then take the time to figure out what you need to do, and brush up on your writing skills. As an article writer it is important that you create your own voice and make your deadlines, so keep a steady manageable workload especially in the begging. You can lose decent work really fast if you continue to miss deadlines, and continue to take on too much work that you can’t perform successfully.

If you find that you need to slow down, then take less work, and build yourself up. The more you write, the better you will become as a writer. Find the right freelance writing site, and create your voice in the writing world, the more you write, the more you will learn about your expertise, skills and even technique, and the better you will become as a writer. Choose your projects wisely, be prompt in responding to your PMB (personal message box), give your clients a realistic deadline, set feasible milestones during project execution, set your payment terms wisely (better to ask for Escrow payments) and be professional in handling everything during your project.

    Hey Steve,

    Thanks for your comments. Yes, you are right ODesk, Rentacoder and hireaghostwriter are also some of the good websites to find work and get work done. Yeah I have tried gofreelance, but their navigation and other issues are not not that friendly as they should be for a normal person, moreover, the kind of work they are getting is not up to the mark. Rest you can try yourself and see what they offer and whether you like them or not BUT at least for me that is USELESS.
