Getting started – The realities of being a freelance writer with Topcontent

Every writer has their own story. Each of us has our own style, type of creative expression and preferred medium for writing. The realities of being a freelance writer, however, differ greatly from those of your typical novelist. The technological revolution is the playground of thousands of content writers from all over the world, and some of these, we’re very proud to say, write regularly for Topcontent.

In this blog post, we will give you a sneak peek of what it’s like to write for one of the biggest content agencies in Europe. 

You can work from home

Working from home is the bee’s knees for you – and for us! Because you don’t have to face that pesky commute, you have more time and energy to write for us. You can throw your power suit out the window, get up in your own time and, because we have no fixed times, work whenever and from wherever you want! All you need is a laptop and a working wi-fi connection.

You can work as much or as little as you want

Once you’ve signed up as a writer for Topcontent, you will be given access to a task board, where you can pick and choose assignments to your heart’s content. This means that you can enjoy the ultimate flexibility and work around your schedule depending on the time you have available. 

You are also given the opportunity to choose assignments at will, meaning that, if you feel a particular assignment may prove too challenging or time-consuming, you can pass it over and select another one. Once you have chosen an assignment, you will have 12 hours to complete the task. We believe that this system enables our writers to manage their time more efficiently.

You can utilise all your skills

If you are good at writing but also happen to be a great proofreader or translator, we have assignments for you, too! Our proofreaders check writers’ and translators’ work, and we have quality checkers who make sure a task is absolutely tip-top before sending it on to the client. Some of our best writers are also proofreaders and quality checkers – which means they make extra!
