No new career is easy to move into. And the freelance business is certainly no different than any other. You need to know what is expected and understand your skill levels. Can you do the quality of work that is needed to succeed in the field?
Freelance writing depends upon you level of English, grammar, and editing skills. If you are good, than you have a good chance of making money. If not, you would probably only be wasting your time until you can improve your skills.
Many people start off freelancing for various on-line sites that they have to ‘bid’ or apply for work among hundreds of other freelancers. If their skill set is high and they offer a low bid they may find work to do. Sounds tedious, and it is, but this is one of the best ways to start a basic platform to work off of.
Once a freelancer gets a reputation and a sound profile, they can begin raising their fees for the quality of work that they put out. Remember, clients will not pay top dollar for shoddy work. Nor will they give good reviews, or return for further work.
