5 Industries Hiring Freelance Writers

Previous Article Next Article

Freelance writers who want to grow their freelance writing business will be excited to know that in 2011, certain industries will be growing and hiring. These industries will need web content writing, copywriting, blogs, article writing, newsletters, and other writing. It's up to you to take advantage of the opportunity to market you and your writing services.


You may not believe that tourism is increasing but it is thanks to the baby boomers. This group won't give up travel. They have the funds to travel wherever and whenever and like to get a good deal. If you're interested in travel writing, now is the time to get started. If you have prior experience as a travel writer, start marketing your writing services to travel agencies and your local tourism office. You could find fun writing opportunities such as adventure travel, food and wine writing, and other niches.


The health care industry will experience growth because baby boomers are getting older and will require more medical attention. This means doctors will expand their offices and move to new and additional locations. They'll need to market their new (or improved) offices, and freelance writers can help them do this through copywriting and web content writing.

Nursing homes and assisted living facilities

Believe or not, some baby boomers will be entering nursing homes and assisted living facilities. More and more of these facilities will be built now and in the future. They'll need freelance writers to help them market their businesses.


Colleges and universities are not going away. In fact, they're adding more teachers as are public school systems. Schools wanting to attract students will need help with this. Freelance writers can write the copy for brochures, newsletters, and websites. Freelance writers, who love education, take advantage of this area.

Staffing and recruiting

Many businesses will be employing more office workers and need help finding intelligent office workers. Businesses will turn to staffing and recruiting companies to help them find the employees. Freelance writers can help staffing and recruiting agencies by writing copy for brochures, print and radio ads, and web content.

Freelance writers who want to grow their writing businesses will take advantage of the growth within the industries listed above. If you want to become wealthy freelance writers, you must get out of your comfort zone. Start approaching medium and large businesses and stop looking on certain job boards that post low paying writing opportunities. Make a commitment to work with clients that understand business and will pay your writing fees. You'll have to occasionally negotiate your rates, but it's not a good idea to accept assignments just for the money. You won't be happy and it will show in your work. If must make ends meet, you may consider getting a 'temporary' job that will pay the bills while you build your freelance writing business. Remember, "Rome wasn't built in a day." Don't get discouraged if you don't make $10,000 or more a month straight-away. It will happen if this is what you truly desire.
