There are a bunch of websites for freelancers to search for job opportunities.
I’m sure you’ve heard of Monster, LinkedIn, Indeed, and SimplyHired, but there are also sites created specifically for freelancers like you! oDesk, Elance, Freelancer, and Flex Jobs are some of the popular sites used by freelancers (especially those starting out).
But if you specialize in a certain kind of web writing, the Wealthy Web Writer Job Board would be a great resource for you. It breaks down jobs by niche to help you narrow your search. Here you can browse SEO, e-commerce, PPC, social media, and web copy opportunities with ease.
And, of course, there is AWAI’s exclusive job board, Direct Response Jobs. Through DRJ, you have the ability to create niche-specific templates and search a wide variety of freelance, part-time, and full-time writing opportunities.
And don’t forget about the power of word-of-mouth! Tell your family, friends, accountant, doctor, local restaurant owner, your go-to dry cleaning company … Tell everyone! You never know who needs help revamping their website or needs someone to manage their social media platforms.
