Online publishing sites are training grounds for aspirant writers, as well as those that are well exposed to the craft for future and present jobs. It is where most writers feels the freedom of expressing their own thoughts after having a full day of writing for private clients.

Earning while building your PORTFOLIO

Have you tried contracting an online writing job with a private client? Maybe most of you here have tried going out of the comfort zones of your previous online publishing sites and could relate to what i am trying to imply. Though most of the publishing sites we find in the internet promised us that we can earn as much as we want to, provided that we will pay attention to our craft, continue writing and publishing and supply readers with our insights. The revenues and the pay outs are not as well compensating as its promise. Actually, i have been paid yesterday for a more or less 12k global readership views that has generated $1.09. A lot of you may find this both very frustrating and annoying at the same time. As i have said in my previous articles, online platforms has varying management rules and calculating system of how you will be compensated by your works. In this article, i would like to suggest few things and to tackle in full light why we need to have platforms like this before we indulge ourselves with private contracts and online platforms that gives serious writing jobs for writers like us.


- With this online publishing sites, though as i have said that some of them are not a really ” COMPENSATING SITES ” when it comes to earning money, it gives you a chance to write and hone your talent.
- It also make you aware of the things that you need to strengthen with and yourself. I mean, most writing jobs are a free zone, where you can write and blog about anything and at the same time, can give you the pulse of the reader or how many readers view your write ups and makes the area of your specialties known to you.
- It builds your PORTFOLIO, by having online sites to publish your work with, you can include it in your profile as an additional reference for future clients. They can view your write ups and for them to decide if you are the one that they might need for any kind of assignments that they need to be written or researched.
- Online publishing sites serves as a training ground for newbies. This is where you will deal with the frustrations, the emotional stress, believe me you have to deal with it a lot if you have private clients. The self-deadlines that you give yourself. Where you can see if you can write an article in 30mins. max and how many can you write within a day.As come of the contracting companies expect you to write 10 articles each day, not of your own accord but of their own guidelines, topics and keywords, minus the weekends where you can have a rest.
- It also boost your morale and your self-confidence. Making you fully aware of your abilities
- Heed advices from people that are well experienced with this field, you cannot find writers who are really willing to help you out. Some just see you as rival writer. Haha, sounds funny but it is true. Be discreet with your dealings with sites that offers too good to be true earning pay outs. Find sites that could really hone your talent and could teach you the basic and has editorial guidelines that could prepare you for a much bigger earning jobs in the future.

If you are really looking for a site where you can earn as much as you want to, try writing for private clients while writing in online publishing sites. Earning while building your portfolio can both be beneficial to you. I hope this article had helped some of you as it is my prime intention to motivate those that has real passion for writing..
Have a nice day, everyone!
