CONTENT WRITING: A CAREER OPTION?
This post is being specially written for How to be a CONTENT WRITER.
Professionalism is increasing gradually and people are getting focused on freelancing or even joining some private companies to get independent of the working environment of a formal company.
We all know that not everyone is having a good command of the English Language and writing skills. So, here comes the job of content writer.
Content writing can be of different types.
It can be either writing an article for some website owners or it can be describing product details, any biography and many more….
WHAT EXACTLY CONTENT WRITING IS?
Content writing is the skill of penning your thoughts down on a piece of paper electronically or physically provided that the skills must be unique and extraordinary.
You must think out of the box in order to get successful in this field. Creativity, Research, Uniqueness, SEO knowledge, Punctuality, and loads of other skills are tested together here.
HOW DOES ONE GETS PAID?
Content writers are paid for this work with a good amount depending on their skills and experience. One can also earn 2 INR/w or one can even be forced to accept 5-10ppw. (PPW = Paisa per word).
In a Job, it’s paid as per contract but in freelancing it solely depends on you and on the person for whom you are writing.
You can ask for some amount in advance or can trust the other person and ask for payment after delivery, All depends on you guys.
PLATFORMS FOR FINDING JOBS
Well, there are various platforms on which one can find jobs as a content writer but here are some specific ones where on the basis of your talent you can definitely get some clients on daily basis or even for the long term.
FIVVER.COM is a website that promotes freelancing and helps you with working for multinationals and even individual startups.
Social Media platforms like Telegram and Facebook are the greatest asset where there are millions of website creators who are in search of content writers in order to get their content ready.
(This is not a topic talked about clearly;)
But it is extremely important for beginners as there is a high chance of being over-exploited in this field.
Middlemen in this business too take away the most profit and pay actual writers in pennies.
We would suggest you never take any work for below 20 PPW, no matter how inexperienced you are.
Instead, you can connect to other content writers and try to hone your skills.
Cold Email is another option from where you can get content writing tasks, once you send a cold email, the client can approach the details shared by you in that email. Once he reached, it’s your skills to satisfy him with your work
DOS AND DON’TS
1- Don’t Plagiarise
2. Submit within the Time frame
3. Don’t send Fake samples
4. If you won’t be able to manage the work then clearly tell the client at the earliest
5. Don’t come into this industry being desperate for money because you will be taken advantage of by the clients and you should thoroughly research content writing and its basics before entering.
6. While applying also mention your experience and why you are the best fit for that work.
HOW TO STAND OUT IN A JOB?
One problem with content writers is that they restrict their scope.
They practice the same things again and again, well it’s good but also, you should read novels,
latest articles and observe the writing styles of different people and try to learn a bit from everyone and implement it in developing your skills.
BEWARE OF FRAUDS
The sole purpose for writing this article is this paragraph only. I have been seeing various frauds going on nowadays. So, to become a content writer.
The client asks for the article and doesn’t pay the amount afterward. So, In order to guide you here are some tips for you:-
1- Always Ask for Some Amount in ADVANCE
2- Do ask for a Verification document like an Aadhar card / Contact No. or other details
3- Whenever sending your article, do send it half, blur the rest of the portion and send the real one after full payment.
