I wanted to get paid to write $5,000 – $10,000 reports! So I haven’t written as a freelancer for any websites, but what I have done quite a bit of is write white papers for companies. Here’s basically how it works. Consulting companies, engineering firms, law firms, and tons of other professional service firms like to put out “thought leadership” reports which basically are blog/research reports on steroids.
The firm wants to look smart on a topic and then use the white paper as part of their sales strategy. The funny thing about these reports is that very few companies actually write them – they hire freelancers to do it. If you were good at writing college papers then you will be awesome at writing white papers.
Domains are the real estate of the internet and they are only getting more and more valuable. I have seen the average price for a mid-tier domain jump from $400 to $3,300 in the past 3 years alone. One huge driver of these price increases, of course, is the growth of Word, Press and as building websites have gotten easier, more people have been willing to shell out pretty big bucks to get the exact domain they want.
I have them all set-up so unless an offer is over $1,000 then I don’t receive the email. So I don’t have to deal with low-ballers. 20. Word, Press Website Building (& Maintenance Fees!) $300,000I no longer build Word, Press sites, but back in the day I easily built over 100 of them and worked on even more.
I got my early clients from Craigslist and e, Lance (now Up, Work) and started building websites for law offices, consulting firms, non-profits, churches, real estate companies, and e-commerce startups. One bonus is that I got to learn about so many different industries, for example, hydroponics, which I would have probably never learned about had I not had to build Word, Press site for the second largest (at the time) online hydroponics store.
These services included things like keeping the website secure and uploading content. This is where the real gold was…I was able to get some maintenance contracts at $1,000/month – which is a tiny expense for a big firm. Unfortunately, while there are still a ton of Word, Press website projects – it’s now more of a commodity service.
