18 Writing services to offer as freelance writer

    Are you considering providing your skills as a writing service, but don’t know yet how? Put your worries aside. I have 18 creative ideas you can put into action as a skilled writer and turn into money!

    Notice: This post was written before AI tools. My personal opinion is to use AI as a personal assistant, not as a machine that spits content out.

    1 | Blog content writing services

    Writing is not for everyone. Business owners and bloggers are busy. They need to have high-quality content available for their readers. That is when you come in as a freelance writer.
    Writing high-quality blog content can be difficult and time-consuming. At least it is for me.

    Selling Writing services as freelance writer can help other who don't have your expertise

    Words don’t come easyyy…to me

    In some cases, you may get an outline, and keywords while in others it will be expected that you know how to do keyword research as well.

    If keyword research is included or it is expected from you to provide graphics then charge more.

    Verblio is one place you can start with.

    Where you can offer/find gigs




    2 | Guest blogging writing services

    You can write guest blog posts on behalf of companies or bloggers who are busy doing other things.

    Your job is to write an article for them.

    Their job will be to post it to the site they want to guest post to.

    You will not get credit for this, only monetary compensation.

    Where you can find guest blogging gigs



    3 | Social media content writing services

    You can provide social media content writing services if that is something you know how to do.

    It is very important to know what you are doing. You will be posting on behalf of other people who have their reputations at stake.
    You don’t want to be the person who gives them a bad rep.
    Your job will be to create engaging content for their target audience.

    You have to be familiar with the different platforms and understand how to write for each one.
