Getting rich as a freelance writer may seem impossible. Even making enough for living a normal life can be a tough goal. While some writers make just a supplementary income, others work as full time freelancers. The first thing that someone who writes full time may need is a steady source of work for which he/she can get direct payments.
The next step is establishing goals. With around one thousand dollars a month, a person can be self employed. By earning a decent sum of money from active writing, an individual can be ready for thinking of earning a passive income as well. There are many websites that can be used by writers for publishing content. These sites usually have a high rank on search engines and can offer great exposure to publish work.
A good income can be earned passively from the websites, but usually a large number of articles is required even for earning a few hundred dollars monthly. Not all of the websites are reliable and they can change their policies in time. However, with hard work, a successful individual can earn a few thousand dollars a months from passive income combined with direct payments. Another thing that people could do to earn passive income from writing is to make a website and post thousands of articles there, preferably under a certain niche.
Having a website or blog can be much more safe an profitable on the long run than publishing on article websites. Also making a website and combining this with the other two methods can make people earn more. Getting rich from freelance writing can be possible theoretically, but after at least a few years of hard work.
Maybe people may not become rich in the true sense, but wealthy enough to afford decent things that they desire. An ideal thing for people to succeed would be making a content website where writers to post their work and split the profit with them. Getting rich as a freelancer writer may be a hard task, but not impossible.
