If you want to make money as a freelance writer, the easiest and fastest way to do it is to become a freelance copywriter. Successful freelance copywriters make six-figure incomes without trying too hard.
What's A Freelance Copywriter?A freelance copywriter is a commercial writer, someone who writes sales material for businesses. This can include: brochures, advertising, e-commerce material, catalogs... Think about all the text (copy) that businesses need - they need everything from product descriptions to reports and manuals.
Can you write copy for businesses?
If you can write a letter, and have a reasonable grasp of grammar, and are willing to learn, of course you can. Writing copy is easy, because it has one aim - to get results.
Copywriting is writing to make sales: it's vital to understand the difference between writing to inform, and writing to make sales. Can you sell on the page or on the computer screen? If you can sell, then you can write copy - you can become a copywriter.
Your copywriting makes money for the businesses for which you write, so you're paid well. Some copywriters work on a percentage (royalty) basis: they're paid for the copy they write, and a percentage of the gross income (usually, sometimes it's net) which their copy generates. This is the way that copywriters become millionaires. :-)
