Initially, based on your giving time, communication skills, client handling skills, and writing quality, you can earn approximately $100-120 or 8000-10000TK per month.

Niche is playing a crucial role in content writing. So first, choose a specific niche to get expertise and authority. When choosing a niche, always follow your passion and enthusiasm.

2. Create your own website or blog for an online presence
If you want to get a job, you must let the clients know that you are offering content writing services. Online presence is a must for informing your market presence. For this
You will get some free blog sites (Medium, Wix, or WordPress); go there and start your blog. It is the simplest way to make ready some samples to show your practical writing to the clients.
The best practice will be to create your websites. If possible, and have the solvency to invest some bucks in starting your freelancing business, buy a good named domain and minimum-spaced hosting. This website will serve you in two ways. The first one is like a portfolio or resumes to show your expertise to the clients, and the second is you can earn from Google AdSense.
3. Write some excellent sample works
Now, you are ready with your free blog site or your website. It’s high time to write some exclusive, reader-engaged, and well-formatted content as samples. In the first step, write at least 7-8 contents depending on various topics and structures. Your listed samples can be a single review, multiple reviews, and info. Then start marketing them.
Write some short posts on your writing topic and interlink your written sample. Then publish your post on different social media like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Reddit, etc.
If you can successfully do the work, you will attract potential clients’ attention through your activities. There is a massive crisis of good writers in this content writing industry, so every digital marketer wants to grab any expert writer. In this way, you will get your first order from those potential digital marketers.
4. Make ready your elevator pitch
At this step, you have to make ready an excellent client killer pitch to show your expertise if any client comes into your inbox. Why?
Sometimes, some potential and right clients come to your inbox to know about yourself and justify your skill. They don’t want to invest their time, money, and energy in any unwanted writer. So it’s your responsibility to transform any visited clients into potential clients with your pitch and communication skill.
Below, I am writing some different circumstance’s elevator pitch to manage clients for your home Job.
● Try to understand a client’s requirements and write a short but useful and accurate elevator pitch. As a result, you will always be ready to inform who you are, your service, and how this service will help the client increase their business growth. If you can convince them, no clients will run away if they need content writers.
● Try to find out the Email address of your expected company, then send a cold Email informing your service. If you send 50 cold emails, you will probably get a 50% reply, and 5-8% cold mail will take positive results for you.
● Join online groups for developing a good relationship with the writing community. Their many job providers share their posts by seeking content writers. Contact them by sending your samples and elevator pitch. Hopefully, you will get a positive response.
● Open LinkedIn profile and always be active there. Besides LinkedIn, always keep your social media profile up to date and attach some of your published work links. If somebody wants to hire you, they can know about your activity without informing you by visiting your profile. If they get your sample’s link, they think you are a great, smart, and well-known person about digital marketing.

If you have enough confidence in your writing quality, you can open some Gigs on different International freelance marketplaces. Those are the best lead and sources of high-paying clients. You can check out my content for detailed information about International freelancing websites. Some of the job sites are

6. Ask for testimonials from your previous clients
The testimonial is proof of your writing quality and experience. So when you have built some reputation about your work, ask for a testimonial from your respected clients. Politely ask for some words from them about how they feel after working with you. Or you can ask for a short Email about their experience.
After getting one or two positive reviews or testimonials, publish them on your website, blog site, or social media profile. These testimonials will boost up your confidence and make you different from the market shout and average writers.
