A Website To make this a “real thing” it’s best to have a website that shows potential clients you are a legit writer. Here is my writer website: My writer website Innovative Ink My website speaks to my ideal client – native digital brands.

2. A Writing Niche Ideally, having a freelance writing niche can help you find work quickly as a work from home writer. Definitively knowing that you want to be a pet writer or a food writer or a parenting writer makes it easier to find the right type of online job you want, right? How do you find your niche? I would look at your hobbies, your previous work experience or your passions and find some topics you might be interested in writing about.
For example, a lot of my subscribers mention the arts is a topic they want to write about. Since my niche is small business, you can try to find art exhibitions or companies that supply the paint or art supplies to see if they have an online presence, a blog or a newsletter.
The blog posts on my blog – Elna Cain – are written as close to how I would write for my clients. The biggest difference is that my client pieces wouldn’t have “I” or a lot of my personal background story in them. Instead, I would use facts and statistics in my writing.
Can I use fiction writing? Many writers have short stories or books that they’ve written. You might be wondering if you can use these pieces of content for landing an online writing job. Personally, I work with small businesses providing business type content. So, I know for my ideal client, they wouldn’t hire you if you provided a fictional story.
A Social Media Presence Yes – Another thing you need to start online writing is a social media presence. Again, you want to make writing a sustainable way to live, and to do this, you need to be “everywhere” online. Simply having a Twitter profile and a Linked, In profile is sufficient, though.
