It’s A Great Time to be a Freelance Writer!

By Daniel Scocco

Technology certainly created a period of prosperity for writers all around the world. Before the advent of the Web making money as a freelance writer was relatively difficult, because you had a limited number of local publications to work with. Today, on the other hand, there are literally tens of thousands of publications online, on all sorts of niches, and writing for one of them is sometimes just a matter of reaching out with an email!

As companies discover that content marketing (i.e., publishing content that will attract and engage new customers in a natural way) can be much more effective than traditional advertising, the demand for writers who can create such content is only increasing.

If that was not enough, every day new platforms emerge, and those will also need content. For example, we are currently seeing the rise of chat bots, which are automated software robots that can chat with human users, providing a wide range of services and enterteinment. Guess what, companies that develop or employ those chat bots will need writers to create the messages and information that will be sent to users!

As you can see, there are many opportunities available right now. If the idea of becoming a freelance writer sounds intriguing, you should definitely join our Freelance Writing Course. We run it twice a year, and the second edition of 2016 is opening for enrollment today.
