what is my best chance?

5 replies
Hello. I am very new to the world of freelance writing and in fact to the art of writing for actual money but I am a very talented writer for an untrained novice. I am a high school drop out on the process of correcting that error but this leaves me with no education or previous work to boast. I am very willing to work for metaphorical peanuts while I get my name out there and my education up to snuff.

With all of this in mind can someone point me in the right direction to have a chance at landing a few contracts? Any advice is greatly appreciated.

One last point I have recently registered with o desk as well.

    Post your services on Warrior Forum's "Warriors for Hire."

    Then, build a mini-website offering your services and integrate your payment acceptance through Paypal.

    Also, make sure everything you write is grammatically correct. I noticed a few grammatical errors already on your thread.

    Jonathan's advice is super.

    1. Avoid Fiverr.
    2. Setup a basic portfolio/ ecommerce site.
    3. Promote to webmasters and marketers.
    4. Aim to get repeat business.
    5. Build a list with your buyers.

    Simple model, but it works like gangbusters.

    Along with Jonathan's suggestion to posting right here on the Warrior Forum, you can set up some gigs on Fiverr and also apply for jobs on odesk.

    Those 3 should be enough to get you some work coming in and some great reviews for your mini-website
