How Much Can You Earn From Content Writing?

Content writing

This post is in response to the ILite “Natpudan’s” query on how much can one earn for 5-6 hours of work per day? Remuneration is definitely the key motivator to working. However, in the initial stages of work to create a clientele that you can trust to give you regular work is what is important. Post a few articles under your name on ezinearticles.com (after going through their submission guidelines), associatedcontent.com or start a blog/hub page so that it adds to your credentials. 

The remuneration would however, vary depending on the experience, the hours you are ready to work each day and also the clients. Freelancing has its own advantages however, the problem with it is to find regular work, thus, it becomes important that you do find more than one client to work with and balance the work. If there is one single client promising you regular work and good pay then this would be an ideal situation, otherwise you surely must have your backup plan in place so that you are assured of work each day. 

When it comes to remuneration the rates may be on per assignment basis or per word. Some of the clients these days prefer to have a fixed salary basis for a given amount of work each month. A search online would get you articles of people talking of rates like $10-$15 per hour, however, it is best to be more realistic with expectations going by the existing trends. For those of you living in the US, finding better rates may be easier as the rates there are higher, however, in India, people still expect writers to be available at a very low rate. 

You would be able to find a good amount of work for the rate of $2.5-3 for a 500 word article. This would be a good way to start and slowly build up on work and experience. There are clients who would promise you regular work for INR 50 or even a ridiculous amount of INR 20, it is really not worth it as you would be slogging the whole day and not make anything worthwhile at the end of the week/month. 

To put it realistically earning 10-15k (INR) per month will not be difficult for a beginner. As you add to your experience the rates would increase and you would be able to quote anywhere from 50 paise to a rupee per word. For a writer who is ready to work full time from home (say 7-8 hours) and has 2-3 years of experience in writing/blogging and good knowledge of SEO earning about 40k -50k for work from home will not be difficult. 

The area of writing that you decide to enter will also make a difference to your remuneration. The rates are higher for technical and academic writing (but then the research and time involved for creating a piece of work is also much more) as against ghost writing articles for directory submissions. Work your way up by slowly making additions. Keep aside atleast half an hour each day to read up on SEO techniques and the trends and offers in the field. Adding to your knowledge and skills would help better prospects over time. Patience is the key.

Your Fortune For Today

Changes to your chosen field are indicated. Ideas from other states or countries might fire your creativity. Your intellectual or artistic interests could take on a new dimension, expanding your horizons and opening new opportunities. You might toy with the idea of travel, perhaps to learn more about these matters. Possible formal education in new fields is also indicated.

There is huge possibility today that you will go on a professional trip to enhance your skills and creativity. Make sure to use this opportunity to gain both professional expertise as well as financial benefits.

You may find yourself taking the high road today. It could be that you’re like a bird soaring above the landscape. As you fly, your partner is on the ground trying his or her best to keep up. If you keep flying straight, you’ll get lost and confused and may not find your way back. Consider keeping your feet on the ground with your friend.

You may prefer to avoid arguments, but sometimes it is best to stand your ground. If you must fight, resolve to maintain control. Refuse to be childish, abusive or immature. You have legitimate feelings and are entitled to talk about them in a reasonable way. Keep a sense of humour, if possible!

Today brings strong feelings and maybe a little disappointment. The more willing you are to accept life as it comes, the better you’ll be able to make positive choices. Be especially cautious of your reactions if you’re feeling possessive early in the week. Avoid listening to gossip.

If you happen to be training for a new trade, learning a new technique, or perhaps you’re being evaluated after an internship period, you can expect these pursuits to conclude on a high note. You may have been somewhat afraid that those in authority would frown upon your originality. On the contrary, it seems the people in charge appreciate it more than you know.

This can be a busy day. Duties and obligations in family relationships must not be neglected. Set reasonable limits on your service. Getting to a variety of small tasks effectively will require organization and an eye on the clock. You can bring up difficult subjects in a positive way.

Make sure there is an equal amount of give and take in your day today. Sometimes when you love someone, you just want to keep giving and giving in order to demonstrate your incredible love. Be sure that you aren’t draining yourself of valuable energy that you need for yourself. Also be sure that the people you’re giving to are also giving their fair share in return.

An appealing new face could appear on the scene today. This might lead to a new friendship, although this person could be charming enough to bring out your insecurities. Put these aside – you’re looking great. Since your efficiency is at an all-time high, plan on taking advantage of that by dealing with some errands you’ve been postponing for quite some time.
