If you’re a freelance writer for a few publishing companies, you’re probably a free-spirited person who does not want to get tied up to a single desk and computer for eight hours every day. You don’t want to work for anyone but rather you want to work for yourself. Online content writing is another business you can delve your hands into. Most of the time you’re asked to write an original SEO post on a given topic, and every time, you need to submit your output within 24 hours. Here are some things to expect in being an online content writer.
Most online writing companies allow writers to work anywhere and anytime. There is a wide range of topics to be covered – from sciences, economics, entertainment, travels to gardening and sports. However, do not expect to write about your interests or be given topics that are very close to your background. In the beginning, you probably won’t be able to choose the topics you will write about, and you might end up writing four to five 600-word articles about something you have never heard of. It would be very difficult and you need to do a lot of research before even starting. You will probably be lucky enough to submit your output on time, though you’ll be very tired and will lack sleep. Despite this, you will patiently wait for the day you’ll be given an interesting topic that you’re very familiar with. However, everyday it will always be a topic that you know so little about or something you never even knew existed. It will also become more difficult since the number of words become greater along with the number of articles required in a single day.
You will be thinking that in order for you to come up with a better original SEO post, the company should give you topics that are more inclined to your background, hobbies and interests. It would be a lot easier and more advantageous for both you and the company since the produced articles could be full of impact and more interesting. But alas! The company only thinks how good and very hardworking of a writer you are and only sends you the difficult stuff. They are totally unaware of how you are actually dying and how your brain is dangerously racked up every time you write an original SEO post.
Sometimes also you will receive such confusing and vague topics. For example if the keyword is “pins,” what pins exactly? Safety pins? Button pins? Bowling pins? When the defining keywords is not part of the standard operating procedure in your company, it can really be tough. It’s way too exhausting to even start an article about something so plain and unclear. If the company you’re working in is also one of those who don’t meet up with the writers but only use emails and text messaging to contact one another, then it’s a higher level of difficulty.
As a writer, there will also be those great times wherein editors send back your written original SEO post along with their comments in order to help you improve. However, if you don’t get what they mean, it would totally be useless. If you’re told that your sentences are awkward but when you read them, you think nothing’s wrong, what awkward exactly? And what part? Some of your editors are probably too lazy to point out your mistakes and will only send you awkward comments that you won’t even know what to do about.
Despite all these, do try hard and persevere in this endeavor. It will be very challenging and difficult, but once you’ve overcome this, rest assured there will be nothing more difficult in life.
