Tens of thousands of people throng the internet every month looking for freelance writing jobs, but unfortunately many either fail to find writing jobs or they fall victim to low paying gigs. One of the best, and guaranteed, ways to get freelance writing gigs is by applying to jobs posted on job boards. I’m not talking about job boards like Upwork or Guru.com. Instead, I’m referring to real job boards that enforce a process that ensure freelancers are paid well.
Usually, the most popular freelance job portals are Upwork, Guru and the likes — and there’s a good probability that you already know them. Unfortunately, these sites encourage clients to pay freelancers a pittance, and I usually recommend that writers find better alternatives to sites like Upwork.
