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.

The Right Question

In a terrible accident at a railroad crossing, a train smashed into a car and pushed it nearly four hundred yards down the track.

Though no one was killed, the driver took the train company to court.

At the trial, the engineer insisted that he had given the driver ample warning by waving his lantern back and forth for nearly a minute.

He even stood and convincingly demonstrated how he’d done it. The court believed his story, and the suit was continue reading...

A friend or romantic partner might need your advice and want to discuss a few things that you don’t really understand. This could concern this person’s job, which involves a lot of technicalities with which you’re unfamiliar. Don’t be afraid to stop occasionally and ask for an explanation. If you’re going to be of any help, you have to have some idea of what this person is talking about.

You’ll find little comfort in your emotions today. You may want to simply stick to business. Concentrate on getting things done in your regular routine. Create a plan and stick to it. This isn’t a day to deviate from the norm, nor is it a time in which you’ll find sympathy from others. Stick close to home and take care of your personal business. Time is precious – don’t waste it.

Come out of your shell today. You’ll notice that people are much more sensitive to your feelings because they seem to be more emotional themselves. Communication is likely to occur more through unspoken channels than traditional methods. Many words can be conveyed with a look, wink, or long hug. Let others know that you’re listening to them.
