How To Make Money Online As A Freelancer In Nigeria

How To Make Money Online As A Freelancer In Nigeria
There are many sites in the internet were individuals can sign-up to start earning their living as freelancers.
Examples of such sites include:
- Fiverr

Many of these sites like the MicroworkersJobboy, and Minijobs offer instant jobs. You are paid to perform little jobs like clicking on links, signing up with your clients affiliate links and other mini-tasks.
While the rest allow their workers to post their gigs (what they have to sell) and wait for buyers to come to them as in the case of Fiverr.

But new workers complain about not getting jobs in these sites, maybe due to the fact that they have not yet gained stars and reviews and other issues. I know what it means like posting a gig on Fiverr and having to wait for weeks before getting buyers so I have published an e-book that will help you excel online as a freelancer. You can get yours here.

Today, I’m here to tell you different sites that you can get jobs instantly as writers, and if you are good enough, you can earn your first dollar two days after signing up (because you have to wait for your client to approve your work).

The first site we will be discussing is iWriter.
iWriter: iWriter is a website that brings clients that want their jobs to be done in hours together to writers that are ready to work immediately. I got my first job in iWriter the day I signed up and I was very happy. It was not my first freelancing job though, but I liked making exploits. I wrote the article down in 2 hours and submitted it, and in 12 hours, my clients had approved me, wow…what a good start. I remember, my first article was on Automobiles, my client told me to write on the 2019 Land Cruiser 2019 and I researched well, in less than 2 hours, I had completed the article and I had an hour to review it before submitting.

Please Note:
- After applying for your first job in iWriter, you’ll be given a test based on the job’s language and you must pass up to 13 of the questions out of 15 before you will be allowed to apply for the job. Be VERY CAREFUL when answering the questions because, once you fail it, you’ll not be given a second chance.

- If you are choosing a job in iWriter, try to choose jobs that have high acceptance rates. Some clients just like rejecting jobs, it’s not bad to accept those jobs, but you should only choose them if you are good enough.

- Now check this, if you do a job of 150 words and get 5stars and someone else does a job of 700 words and gets a 2star review, you’ll have more chance of getting your level upgraded than the person.

- iWriter is for only fast writers. If you can write an article of 700 words in 3hours, then iWriter is for you. You have only 3hours towrite any article in iWriter no matter the length of the article.

- Apply for jobs before starting. I remember a time I saw an article on iWriter and went ahead to write it without applying. I finished the article quite alright, but I lost the job. Before I could submit it, the job had been picked up by someone else and I lost it.

- Test you jobs with Small SEO Tools before submitting, especially if you got it after researching in the internet. iWriter will test your works before submitting them to the client and if it’s discovered that you copied, they’ll warn you. After the third warning, you’ll be permanently bound from using iWriter.
If you want to earn a living online as a writer, I think iWriter is a good way to earn a living as a writer.

Hirewriters: Hirewriters is almost the same as iWriter. It has the same environment; you see a job, apply, do it and wait for the client to approve it so that you can get your pay. The much I know, people from countries like Nigeria are not allowed to sign up with Hirewriters as at the time of writing this post. You can click Hirewriters to check if your country is eligible to join. If it’s not eligible, you submit your e-mail to them so that they can inform you when it becomes available in your country. The laws are similar to iWriter so you can apply what you read above to it.

Textbroker: This is another site that offers jobs to freelancers, it is a nice place to earn as a fraalancer but I might say that their pays are basically low. They pay $0.01 per word but if you are fast writer, I think you can make enough from this site.
I performed a research on them from their Facebook page and this was what I got.

You can't expect much from a site like this, because it is, at its core, a content mill. Writers, avoid it. You can find better work, and while you may think "Oh, it is easy money any time I want it," they will suck away at your time and energy for next to no payback.Clients, stop expecting high quality content for pennies on the dollar. You run a business, start investing in content the same way you would anything else. If you can't pay for it, either do it yourself, or find another strategy.
Textbroker, at the very least improve your finicky, constantly locking system, your bizarre and sporadic rating system, your horrible customer service, and your overall process.
