“There are many high-paying, recession-proof jobs brought on by the digital age we live in that many can do – right from home. One of the most lucrative is SEO writing. I’ve been a freelance writer for almost 20 years. It exploded my business when I started offering this form of writing in 2007 because it’s what every website needs.”
Ms. Black went on to explain a little about SEO writing, and why it’s an obvious answer to the “what careers are in demand now” question. Following is her insight.
Commonly Asked Questions about Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Writing
How much do SEO writers earn? According to job search site SimplyHired.com, the average salary for an SEO writer (aka SEO content writer, SEO copywriter, web writer, SEO article writer) is $56,000 per year. Yuwanda points out that freelancers can earn even more because they set their rates and can take on as many clients as they want/can handle.
Qualifications needed to become an SEO content writer: Good writing, research and communication skills, along with a foundational knowledge of SEO are the biggest says Ms. Black.
She stresses that many get thrown off by the technical terminology, eg, search engine optimization. But she insists it’s something almost anyone can learn in just a few days. She states, “By investing in an SEO copywriter training class, you can learn everything you need to know in a few days and start earning money within a couple of weeks.”
How much does it cost to start an SEO copywriting business: If you have an internet connection and a computer/laptop, you’re good to go; there are no other start-up costs.
Ms. Black summarizes by saying, “The next time you’re searching for “what careers are in demand,” do some research on SEO writing. I got so busy within the first couple of months, I had to hire other SEO article writers to help me out – and I’ve gone on to build a full-fledged SEO writing company because the demand for this type of web content is never ending.
