Remote Freelance Writing Jobs
Let’s look at six different types of fashion-based remote writing jobs that you can start doing whether you are just getting started with freelance writing or you want to add a new writing niche to your service.
1. Fashion Writing for Brands
One way to land online fashion writer jobs is you can start pitching to established fashion brands and sites to find fashion gigs.
Make sure to not just pitch to style blogs – reach out to labels and online boutiques as well. This will give you a bigger pool of potential remote freelance writing jobs you can land.
For many freelance writers, this is one of the ways they get their start in the online writing world.
Here is an example on the Contena Job board for a high-paying fashion writer.
For example, you might see an online baby boutique offering $0.25 per listing/product copy created. By seeing this remote freelance writing job offer, you can validate the fashion writing niche and offer your service to other online baby boutiques.
As a new freelance writer, if you set an entry rate, you can easily pick up a few clients to agree to a blog post every week.
A lot of style sites need longer buying guides rather than quick posts, and are willing to pay for them.
I’ve learned that the gift guide writing niche is highly profitable and you can incorporate this type of writing as a fashion writer.
Brands and online stores need help creating constant copy for their site, product, blogs, and social media, – these are freelance writing jobs you can easily land!
2. Fashion Writing for Your Blog
Another way to use your fashion writing to land online fashion writer jobs is to start your own blog and grow that from the ground up.
How is this a writing job? Well, it is indirectly.
You can definitely use your blog to land some remote freelance writing jobs. It’s happened to me and it can happen to you!
But, this way is more challenging and it can take a longer time to land gigs. My suggestion is to blog on the side of finding writing work.
3. Fashion Social Media Influencer for Gigs
The fashion world is competitive, but what’s neat about social media is that there’s a place for every body shape and age.
A college student modeling cute styles doesn’t appeal to me because #momhips.
My favorite fashion accounts I follow are from moms that share Amazon finds. Amazon can be a hit and miss in the fashion department, so it’s refreshing to see a real woman wear and review clothes from the site.
Whatever your current season of life is, you use social media to share your favorite outfits or style ideas.
The best way to market this is through affiliate sales, especially through Amazon, and sponsorships.
Sponsorships occur when a brand reaches out to you to sponsor their product on your blog or in social media. Together you work on a rate and fulfill that task. Some bloggers make thousands writing sponsored content, while others make money sharing it on social media.
Ideas that will always be popular are celebrity/popular show fashion copies, fashion for body’s that are hard to dress – i.e. not just plus size, but even dressing larger chests or pieces that work off the shelf for petite women.
The smaller you make your focus, the more success you can have in the fashion niche.
A great place to try this out is on Instagram. Students in my Writeto1k course landed amazing remote freelance writing jobs just by using Instagram and posting quotes, graphics and using stories.
