5 Reasons for a content writer to freelance

Exposure: Every Content Writer needs it

Exposure helps you gain experience and changes the perspective at a quicker rate than performing a set of fixed jobs. Moreover, it helps you to leverage your reputation in the market. Your horizons grow like never before. You also learn to manage official chores by yourself. Apart from self management, you get a whiff of freedom. This freedom is the freedom to manage your profile and promote what you believe in. Exposure is indeed helpful in your growth to handle your business and earn your way to the top.

Unraveling hidden truths: Content Writer is no less than a sleuth

While your career shatters the myths of juvenile dreams, it is the first lesson to survival. Self-employment helps you to gain access to knowledge which every employer possesses. All the confidential stuff, which was labeled as top secret won’t remain under the hidden archives anymore. You just need to explore and research some stuff as a content writer, that’s it. If that won’t do, become your boss’ pet or his pet’s pet. Learn how they earn big bucks and fame.

Growing your income: Content Writers do not live on air

You might be earning a lot. But, how bad could extra cash be? Duh, everybody needs to grow. Growth without the monetary perspective is as dumb as having pickles with coffee. I personally consider this as one of the best reason to quit my 9 to 5 job. But, freedom and freelancing come at a big price- Insecurity and Risk. Asa Candler, John Rockfeller, Henry Ford, Abraham Lincoln and every person who has his name in the grade six text books has risked his career and reputation at some point of time. It’s nothing new. If you have a proper solution to this, then you are cool enough to reach the next level.

Job Insecurity/Layoffs: Content Writing is like just another job

After all, it is not your business. You are just another employee. You were working fine and then one day-BAM! You get hit with the layoffs. USA is one of the countries with the maximum layoffs. When unemployment looms large over your head, you are bound to get depressed and disheartened. Freelancing helps you to counter such problems.

Health: Content Writers are humans, in case you didn’t notice

Health issues are the biggest reasons that push you off the cliff. Be it an impediment of some sort or your pregnancy issues, you might fall sick anytime. Hey, even your loved ones could be hospitalized. Who would stand by their bedstead tending to them in moments of despair? You! Then how do you cope with the double jeopardy of sickness and unemployed at the same time? You cannot even bootstrap for those moments. There are numerous cases which might force you to call it a day. Many employers are heartless enough to butcher your career, that too for a sick leave. Moreover, freelancing gives you the option of carrying on your work anywhere, anytime.

“With all this shit you’re saying right now, I need a coke!”

Apart from all this blabbering, every writer wants to be known for his piece of work. A bestseller is fighting hard to find its way to the publishers. So, these are the reasons why you should freelance as a content writer. Hope you have something new to think about after reading my point of view.
