FREELANCE writers can earn over $300 a day as a TikToker has revealed just how simple getting started can be.
Writer and TikToker, Alex Fasulo, has been freelancing since 2015 and has been helping others get started with similar side hustles.
Alex, who goes by alexfasulobiz on TikTok, has tons of video sharing the best websites for freelancers to find work, the appropriate amount to charge, and much more.
Recently, she posted a video breaking down just how easy it is to get started freelancing.
In it, she explained that you can make up to $330 per day while you’re starting out.
However, once you have experience and are able to speed up your writing time, your payments increase substantially.
“We have been so conditioned by corporations to think that making $10,000 a month is a very hard thing that only some of us can do,” Alex said in the TikTok.
“And that it of course requires a 40 to 60-hour work week. Wrong,” she added.
Additionally, she mentions that ghostwriters may actually charge triple the amount.
Just note that ghostwriting takes a little more time as these are typically longer projects where clients will pay you to write something for them.
By agreeing to a ghostwriting position, you are waiving all writing credit over to the client who will then claim authorship of the project.
What is freelance writing?
According to Alex, freelance writing is when a client hires a writer, someone they do not employ, to write a blog post, content landing page, or whatever written text is asked of them.
Freelancers will then typically be paid per project or whatever they is agreed on.
It’s important to note that since most clients will pay per project, your time becomes how you charge.
This means the faster you get at writing, the more projects you can work on which means more money.
Additionally, once you have experience, you can start charging more money per word count.
“It doesn’t take you very long on these sites to work your way up to a point where you can be charging $50 to $75 per 500-word blog you write,” Alex said.
That is about two hours or less of your time once you get the hang of it.
Alex said on TikTok that she uses websites like Fiverr and Upwork.
Fiverr is a digital service marketplace that provides buyers and sellers with a transactional platform.
This includes writing projects but also many other types of freelance work.
Upwork is a similar freelancing platform connecting freelancers with clients.
You can browse jobs internationally, by state, or even by city.
For ghostwriting, Alex said she can make triple the amount she made when she was freelancing.
She said that she charges anywhere from $1,200 to $1,500 to write a 10,000-word ebook for a client.
The reason for the higher amount is because the ghostwriter does all of the work while the client claims authorship.
The Sun reveals how a Walmart side hustle pays out $34k a month and it’s so easy to get started.
Plus, a ‘weird’ side hustle makes up to $800 a week – and only $35 to get started.
