The competition is intensifying for Filipino freelancers and bloggers in major freelancing marketplaces like Upwork, Elance, and Freelancer.com, especially for those who are just starting their freelance career. While it is absolutely worthwhile to be a member of these websites, I would recommend branching out of and focusing on some of the untapped opportunities that are available online, just waiting for you to discover.

For those who see blogging or writing as a chance to enter the challenging but rewarding world of freelancing, I have listed some websites that might help you find writing gigs that suit your skills and salary needs.

1. Craigslist

Craigslist Philippines offers search per cities and job vertical. I suggest that you do a Craigslist search through Google first. One search technique I often use is to type the following keywords into my Google search bar “site:craigslist.org freelance writing job”. Results show all freelancing jobs available worldwide, which will open doorways to a lot of various markets looking for high level English.

2. OLX

OLX.ph works similarly to Craigslist.  It’s a Philippine-based classified ads website, which has a variety of writing job categories  from companies that are on the lookout for freelance writers. You may also apply the same Google search technique mentioned above.

3. LinkedIn

Many companies have an established presence on LinkedIn.com and use it to post corporate news including job opportunities. Many of these announcements are fed in from social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook. Such announcements give you some really golden opportunities to post comments (that are strategically linked to your work) and make yourself known to these companies.  Click here for more tips on how freelancers can leverage Linkedin to find work.

In Essays.ph, you just have to create an account, choose the topic that you would like to write about, claim your slot, write, submit and let an editor review your work.
