How Much Do Beginner Freelance Writers Earn? Revealed!


Let’s face the truth, everyone aspiring to be a writer, wants to know how much they will earn, before signing in to this business. This is a very sensitive and tough data to pin down. 

We all have responsibilities to run and we have a right to know whether what we are about to invest in will yield us enough, and pay our bills.

“How much do you earn, say per months? “I can truthfully assure you that this is among the questions I get from friends, my students, and other people, who want to know about freelance writing.  It’s not a bad question.

 Before I go into details of how much a beginner earns as a freelance writer, allow me to tell you something. I talk too much? Lol, I write too much? Oh please just wait a little bit (laughs).

I used to think that someone can only do freelance writing as a side hustle. A number of white color jobs individuals told me assured me that no one could ever survive on doing freelance writing, as a full time job. Very Wrong! Yes I sentence cased that statement.

 I now visit several blogs owned by freelance writers and see them making billions of money with short periods.  It’s very possible.  Well, I chose to write this article because I’m a beginner freelance writer, and somehow, I’m writing from experience and those shared by fellow starters.


When you are a beginner, you have to start from the bottom.

You’ll have to write content, put in a lot of effort, and spend many hours on it for little income. Don’t give up, because that experience is significant for your development. Many beginners will relate to this.

 There is nothing wrong with starting low. It is only a stage that we have to go through. The good thing will be taking appropriate steps, and quickly graduate from this particular stage.  But hey! Your mindset should never lie to you, that you should take in any amount of pay that comes across, just because you’re a beginner. That’s dangerous!

 What You Came Here For

 When I started a freelance writing business, my main source of income was through Upwork. I feel shy to say that I was so desperate to get a job. I wanted ANY job (dangerous too). I didn’t care much about the charges; all I wanted is to be hired.

 Back then, Upwork used to give us 60 free connects each month, unlike now, when we purchase them at $0.15 each.  So in my first month, I used all the connects with a week, and I almost took a job which was paying so low.

My last connect gave me a job which paid $50.00 and trusts me I was the happiest girl on this planet. I thought that was so much money! Probably it was, by then, given that I did the project and finished it within a few days.

 “If only I can get several such jobs, and complete 3 of them within a week, I could earn $150.00”. Those were my thoughts most of the time.

Luckily, this client was extremely happy with my work, and I guess with my charges too, lol, such that she stuck with me. She had a brand new website, with zero content, saw I wrote all the content needed for the site, for some time, and by the end of it all, I had some good money in my bank.

She increased my pay along the way and gave me bonuses here and there. Of course, she paid me in milestones, so I didn’t have to wait for long.

 A good thing with freelance writing is that you can always work with several contracts, at the same time. So I got a few more contracts, as I worked for my first clients, and one of them happened to belong termed too.

 To cut the long story short, I’m going to mu Upwork profile right now, to calculate how much I earned within 5 months, and come back with real figures (goes to her Upwork profile).

 Wow! $154.060! Well, this is an amount that some freelance writers earn from writing a single blog (I thought you should know). I want you to note that these are only, Upwork earnings, and mark you, I had a few clients from outside upwork.

 Well, right now, my game has changed. I’m focusing on doing a few, quality contract, for a higher amount of money.  This has not just happened to me. I know several freelance writers, who have worked for .Less than I did, and it is very saddening.

A Word for the Beginners

  • Place reasonable charges, not too low. Just do it!
  • Improve your skills constantly
  • Don’t set your charges low, for the fear of criticism

 Do you have any questions/concerns? Do not hesitate to talk to me through the comment section down there (smiles). J Don’t procrastinate either. Your dreams are only a step away. Wake up! People are making money, and impacting their lives, and that of their loved ones. Be among them. And since I want you to succeed, I have an article on A Beginner’s Guide on Getting Started as a Freelance Writer.

  23. Thanks for your article on this site. From my own experience, occasionally softening right up a photograph could provide the photography with a little bit of an artistic flare. Sometimes however, the soft clouds isn’t what precisely you had in your mind and can usually spoil an otherwise good photograph, especially if you consider enlarging the item.

  24. Thanks for your posting. I have always seen that the majority of people are desperate to lose weight as they wish to look slim in addition to looking attractive. Nonetheless, they do not continually realize that there are other benefits so that you can losing weight as well. Doctors state that fat people have problems with a variety of conditions that can be perfectely attributed to the excess weight. The great news is that people who’re overweight along with suffering from a variety of diseases can reduce the severity of their own illnesses simply by losing weight. It’s possible to see a progressive but marked improvement in health while even a minor amount of weight-loss is accomplished.
