To help writers locate the best freelance, remote, and full time writing jobs, GigLeads searches hundreds of job posts and provides daily email alerts containing the latest listings.
The site includes useful information on working as a freelancer and operating as a self-employed business in the United Kingdom with numerous articles and guides addressing the pros and cons of business ownership.
Jobs are searched, sorted, and filtered from providers large and small to bring the best opportunities directly to UK writers.
“While there are a good number of freelance platforms, there are only a few that are geared towards UK users” said Emma Hersh, Founder of GigLeads “That can make it challenging and time-consuming for UK writers to filter relevant jobs and find meaningful work.”
Regardless of the kind of work performed, content creation, blogging, technical writing, interested writers can sign up online and start receiving daily job alerts as well as accessing all of the other writing and business resources contained on the site.
GigLeads has put together a guide for writers that want to source work:
– Check any platforms for commission fees and charges
– Compare the features and resources included
– Respond to jobs as quickly as possible to increase the chance of being hired
– Be honest about abilities and expertise and supply samples
Most common mistakes when looking for work online
One of the biggest issues that freelance writers in the UK experience are fake jobs or scam postings.
It’s important that writers use their common sense when sourcing work, if the opportunity sounds too good to be true then it is not likely to be a legitimate opportunity.
It can be worth researching the hiring company before submitting any information to make sure they have an established presence and that they are a legitimate business.
If it is a company that frequently uses the services of freelance writers then it can be advisable to check reviews and ratings that describe the freelancer’s experience.
The solution to finding freelance jobs
GigLeads has created an easily accessible platform that provides an automated job search process for writers. Job alerts are sent daily via email to each member and contain between 20 and 30 opportunities.
Writers interested in any of the listings can simply click and submit an application. As the platform sources and aggregates jobs rather than operating as a marketplace, there are no hidden commissions to pay on any of the work performed.
In a time-saving process GigLeads searches dozens of providers to reduce search time substantially for its members, allowing writers to focus on performing work rather than spending time looking for it.
For any writers in the UK wishing to improve their skills, GigLeads supports their efforts by providing a comprehensive blog that includes how-to guides, tips for client management, and information on how to run a freelance business.
Writers that want to learn and expand their knowledge can make full use of the educational articles that are free to anyone.
GigLeads offers a low-cost trial for writers to test the service and there are no minimum commitment periods. Members are free to cancel their accounts at any time to offer maximum flexibility.
