7 Remote Writing Sites to Build Your Freelance Writing Portfolio Fast3 min read
Never before, perhaps in the history of the world, has it been easier to get paid to write.
Plus, thanks to the miracle of the Internet, writers can now work from basically anywhere with just a basic computer setup.
If dabbling in remote writing (or maybe even making it your full-time job) sounds appealing to you, then today’s roundup will be just what you need.
Today, I’m revealing a list of the top remote writing sites that I’m personally aware of (and I’ve tried probably over 100).
Here we go:
As one of the first and largest freelance marketplaces in the world, Fiverr is unique among remote writing sites because it allows users to set up a profile offering writing services to anyone who needs them.
Freelancers on Fiverr can also set their own prices (which is great if you’re looking for freelance writing jobs for beginners), build bundles to increase profit, and use Fiverr to build a pool of repeat writing clients.
Their freelance writing category is always robust with premium freelance leads from huge brands and well-known companies too. As a bonus, they don’t take any percentage of the work you secure through their platform.
With a focus on remote jobs that offer their customers flexibility in where and when they work, Flexjobs is a great option for finding remote writing jobs.
They’ve got over 50 freelancing categories, including quite a few sub-categories in the writing space. Whether you’re a copywriter, a technical writer, or a blogger, Flexjobs probably has something for you.
Similar to Flexjobs, Virtual Vocations emphasizes telecommute jobs that can be done from anywhere in the world.
They’ve also got a vast selection of writing jobs that are updated multiple times each week.
If you’re just getting started as a freelancer, FreeeUp may not be the best option for you. But if you’re a seasoned writer who can deliver quality projects, this marketplace may be just what you need.
FreeeUp has its own internal team that recruits, interviews, and vets hundreds of freelancers each week for their skills, communication, and attitude. Only the top 1% of applicants are allowed in. It’s hard to get in, but FreeeUp freelancers get paid pretty great fees by high-caliber clients.
One (mostly) free option that deserves a spot on this list is Linkedin. By using Linkedin’s advanced search features, you can narrow down your “job hunt” to only include freelance/contract jobs, in the writing field, that can be done from anywhere.
From there, you can tweak your results to match your desired outcome, set notification settings, and more. It’s a pretty great free resource.
If you’re looking for a site that posts new freelance writing jobs extremely frequently, then you should look into Contena. At the time of writing, they had dozens of new jobs posted in the last 24 hours.
On top of that, they have high-paying jobs from time-to-time as well. As I reviewed the current list, there were two gigs for $2,000 and $5,000 each. Not bad for typing from your computer in your apartment.
Where do you find remote writing jobs?
Of course, there are dozens (maybe hundreds) of other options for finding remote writing freelance jobs around the web. I’d love to hear in the comments where you find your best remote writing jobs.
Until next time, keep up the hard work!
