Freelance writers in Nigeria are in high demand especially now that new websites and blogs are springing up daily in our cyberspace. When I started as a freelancer 5 years ago, I started with my mobile phone and I made not less than N30,000, despite being very lazy. What if you type words and get paid for it? Most of us can type an epistle on WhatsApp, Facebook and other social networks and yet, we still struggle to solve our financial needs. If you can write, then something is wrong with you if you aren’t making money from it.
When I started as a writer here in Nigeria, I charged N500 for 500 words article. Although there are lots of freelancers who change more and I really envy them. If you can start on the right foundation, you’ll be able to make more money as a freelance writer here in Nigeria. In this eBook, I’m going to show you easy and practical ways on how you can become a successful freelance writer in Nigeria .
HOW TO BECOME A FREELANCE WRITER IN NIGERIA
1. CAN YOU WRITE?
Don’t jump into freelance writing because you heard you can make money from it. That’s BS if you ask me. You have to really know your craft. In this context, I don’t mean being a user of huge ambiguous words that will warrant your readers to always consult their dictionary. At least, you should be able to convey your message in a simple constructed sentence. I discovered that lots of upcoming writers usually have issues with their tenses. When I started, I faced the same hurdle. But like they say, practice makes perfect.
If you can’t write, that’s not the end. You can still make money as a freelance writer provided you’re determined to write. I don’t consider myself a born writer; it was as a result of years of writing. The more you write, the better you become. It’s not magic.
The good thing is; once you’re good with words, your clients will never let go. They will keep bringing more jobs because good writers are rare. There are lots of writers out there, but there are few good writers.
2. DO YOU HAVE THE TOOLS?
You don’t need a laptop before you can write, although having one is an advantage. In this eBook, I was able to expose a free mobile Android app that helped me make money as a writer. This means, you can start making money online now with this smartphone you’re using to browse.
There’s no excuse. With your smartphone and data connection, you can start this journey and become financially free even as a student, graduate or house wife.
3. SETTING UP AN ATTRACTIVE PORTFOLIO
Why most freelance writers struggle to make money online isn’t because they aren’t good, they simply don’t know-how to market themselves. This was one of the mistakes that I made and I paid dearly for it.
To create an attractive portfolio as a freelance writer isn’t rocket science. In fact, it’s easy and free. You don’t have to pay a dime for it. In this eBook, I went so deep into guiding you on how to set up your online funnel. When you know this trick, getting clients won’t be a problem. The problem will be delivering which I know you won’t disappoint .
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ON FREELANCE WRITING
HOW DO I GET PAID?
It’s simple; you negotiate with your client on the mode of payment and the amount you’re to charge for a specific word. A word can be N00.70 or N1.00. It all depends on you. When the deal is struck, you get paid through your bank account .
HOW MANY ARTICLES CAN I WRITE A DAY?
This also depends on your capabilities. During my time, I was able to write two articles daily. You can write more. The more you write, the more your pay. A freelance writer in Nigeria can write about 5 articles a day. It’s all about being determined.
CAN I PARTNER WITH SOMEONE?
Absolutely yes! If you found out that the order is more than you can handle, go online and employ a good writer, be convinced that the individual is really good by requesting for a sample. The worst mistake you’ll make is to employ a horrible writer.
SHOULD I RECEIVE PAYMENT AFTER OR BEFORE SERVICE?
If it’s a contract work, like an order to write about 10 articles a week, you can request your client to pay advance. However, if he can be trusted, then do the work and expect payment after service.
STRATEGIES TO GET CLIENTS AS A FREELANCE WRITER IN NIGERIA
Do you know that there are freelance writers turning down mouth-watering contracts from client simply because they don’t have time? Whereas there are other group of writers, who can’t even boast of one writing job in a week . The difference between the poor and the rich is information.
The difference lies on the strategy implored by both writers. In this eBook, I was able to expose how to get returning clients that pay well.
