Online content writing is different from writing for your own website, in that its content that’s written for another website.
Many writers now include website content writing as part of their portfolio and their diversified income streams. Freelance writers need several sources of income as they aren’t on a contract: the only work they can be certain about getting are the jobs they’re doing now. So they need to work in several areas and for several employers to spread the risk of there being no more work from certain employers.
Articles written for other websites need to follow the advice given in the rest of the pages in this section about website writing, to do with:
The content is being published on the web so needs to be clear and written with simple language and grammar so that the readers can understand it quickly, find the useful information and click the links that the site owner wants them to.
Anyone can do online content writing. You just need to practice.
People who’ve written their own websites or have experience of other writing will find it easier to start, but anyone who’s got reasonable English language abilities can write online content.
If you want to get paid for writing web content you’ll probably need a portfolio of previous work and know about SEO writing (search engine optimization), this is where the positioning of certain words in the article helps the search engines know what the article is about.
You can use articles you’ve written for your own site or just write a range of articles for practice and then use the best ones in your portfolio.
