Specialty and Niche Writers Are Even More in Demand
The need for quality content means that freelancers who specialize in niche industries and can
knowledgeably cover topics from an insider’s viewpoint have an edge when competing for work. From explaining cryptocurrency to de-mystifying the legal system, if you specialize in a niche, your work will be more in demand.
Pay by the Project Now Outstrips Pay by the Hour
Instead of charging by the hour, freelance writers are increasingly charging by the project. According to LinkedIn’s Profinder service, more than two thirds of all freelancers now demand “pay by the project,” and that number is expected to rise as freelancers offer additional services for clients.
Whether you’re interested in the rise of freelance unions or offering ancillary skills, providing clients with clearly written and error-free materials is essential.
