Finding Your Niche as a Freelance Writer

Posted by admin on January 22, 2008 in Uncategorized |

Choosing a career as a freelance web writer requires time, patience and a lot of words. Building your online portfolio requires a lot of time spent writing. It is important to understand the art and nature of freelance writing for the web before publishing your work.
Freelance web writing is all about the niche. When applying for a job or bidding on a contract, the writer will need to have an online portfolio to use as samples of the freelance web writing work they have completed. These samples are best presented as niches.
Creating separate accounts or pen names for different creative niches is a great way to keep your work focused and concise. When an employer wants to hire you as a business writer, they do not want to have to search through health and parenting articles to find the samples relevant to the job for which you are applying. Here in lies the need for niche accounts. 
After you have created all niche portfolios it is time to write. Web writing is different than any other writing in that the content is written to be viewed positively by search engines. A successful career as a freelance writer for the web, requires a knowledge of proper keyword density and web content format.
