Elance Typing Jobs from Home for an Added Income Career Source

There are thousands of write at home jobs in high demand on the Internet. Anyone can find work and make extra income only limited by the effort you put into it.

There are writing scams advertised on the Internet and well documented, but the ones I list here, are not scams. I suggest you always do a search for reviews before paying out any money, most honest outlets for writers do not charge anything to get started.

You’ll contract writing jobs, and you’re pay is guaranteed. The funds for the bid work is placed into an escrow account buy the person who needs the work done. You’re paid when the work is finished and presented to the client for completion of the bid work.

This is the easiest to start a work at home careers to get extra income. You can get started on a full-time or part-time schedule. Elance works as the middleman and takes a small percentage of the contracted amount.

When you signup, you’ll get 10 bid proposals free a month. When you’re paid for a bid job, Elance takes a fee of 8.75% off the top of the total bid amount. You can buy more bid proposals for a low rate if needed.

The client offers a job for bids, it describes the work requirements, and then you both agree on price and specific time frame for completion. This is dependent on the work, but is usually from 1 to 4 weeks. For longer duration jobs, a partial payment schedule agreement can be made.

Then you, the contractor, will place your bid on the job for the amount of time and work you think it will take.  Other contractor’s will bid on the same job as you. The lowest bid does not always get the contracted work. The client will compare the offers and make a choice on who gets the job.

Elance hold the clients money in escrow (equal to your bid amount) until the client and the contractor are satisfied and the job ends. Once the job is complete, Elance transfers the escrowed money to your personal account, minus their percentage.

The more jobs you work on the higher your ratings will go up. The starting pay rate is about $5 to $10 for each 400 to 500-word article. As you build your writing history, you can gain higher rates for your bids.

Your rates of pay can increase for the type of work you take on. EBooks, technical writing and larger more demanding jobs will pay more. Some clients will offer a weekly or monthly contract for a constant supply of work.

    I haven’t tried yet of becoming freelance writer. I signed up an account at oDesk before but I just couldn’t find client. I don’t know, maybe because I am just lazy.

    However, when I started blogging, I got writing jobs from payperpost and reviewme for $5 to $10 per post that I made.

    I am currently checking elance. Who knows, I can earn extra by freelance writing.

  2. Hi Sustines,
    There are many different fields to look at for a writing job. Take your time and choose one that you’re interested in.

    The best thing about it is, you’re not on a time clock, if you don’t want to work for a day or so, you don’t have to.


  3. Hi

    Although it’s not 100% fail-safe, these services do offer escrow services and complaint departments that can help intervene if you’re having problems with a particular client. When used effectively you can limit your potential for a non-paying or trouble client.

    Thanks for sharing.

  7. Even though I have made some good money writing articles, do you have any suggestions as to what you can do to help with writer’s block? I know that after a few articles each day, I really struggle to write any more – any thoughts to help the creative process would be very much appreciated.

  8. Hi Candice,
    Writers block can be a tough one at times.

    I use Google Trends sometimes to get ideas. I enter a few keywords I am thinking about and usually find some ideas to write about.

    I also check the forums that are associated with the website i want to write an article for. I look for the questions that other people are asking and then write an article that helps answer the question.

    Hope it helps,
