Your earning potential will depend on the exact freelance writer jobs you undertake. Generally, a content writer can earn $50 - $250 per day, depending on how many projects they complete successfully. But, as a e.g. full time Mum, you won't be able to spare most of your days and hours for freelance writing, so you will have to decide on how much you'd like to earn per day or week and schedule your projects accordingly.
First of all it depends on how much work you accepted to do. Secondly it is completely up to you. What I do sometimes is work in shifts. I take all of my freelance writer jobs and decide in the morning how much I'm going to do on each. Usually, it's an 45 minutes. So, I start on the first one and work 45 minutes on it. When the time is up, I'm done. Then, I move on to the next one.
When looking at the list of jobs for writers available I noticed that the most wanted content writers are:
web content writers
press release writer
As mentioned in the beginning, it took me quite a while to find the best websites offering jobs for writers. I had to deal with a lot of disappointment and false promises. However, at least I can help you to avoid these pitfalls and I can point you into the right direction now. The website that helped me most getting started as a freelance writer is RealWritingJobs.com. In fact right now I am getting all of the assignments I am working on from them.
Real Writing Jobs is a membership site created for freelance writers, editors and proof readers. Besides acting as a middleman between members and potential employers, Real Writing Jobs also provides training to help members become a better writer. The training is especially useful for people who are new to the freelance writing world. They work with hundreds of companies such as 20th Century Fox, Paramount Entertainment, Ford Motor Company, Google and more!
So how does it work? Companies who need a content writer either for a one-off assignment, or for a full project lasting some time, place an ad with Real Writing Jobs. In this ad ad they explain exactly what they are looking for in terms of their expectations. Freelance writers who are members of RealWritingJobs will apply for any jobs they have the skills for. If they are accepted by the company concerned, they can start working on the project right away. Writing jobs are available throughout the world and Real Writing Jobs accepts writers from any country. It is also not that difficult to get accepted by a company. I manage to get about 3 assignments per day - I could get even more, but that's my limit - and I am not a perfect writer!
There Is NO EXPERIENCE Required!

Accepting Writers From All Over The World!
It's right that there is a onetime fee to become a member of Real Writing Jobs. The regular fee is $68. However, if you enter the following coupon code you will get 50% off. Coupon Code: Save50. So why is there a fee? There are several reasons: first of all RealWritingJobs.com wants only serious people to join their site. If there was no membership fee, 1000s of freebie hunters would join daily destroying the reputation of the service. Secondly: huge companies looking for writers want to keep their costs as low as possible, this is why they do not have to pay anything to RealWritingJobs. RealWritingJobs acts as the middleman and due to the fact that they are a company they have to pay employees to maintain their database and deal with clients and authors. They also have to pay hosting fees, bandwith, office space etc. These are very good reasons, why a service like Real Writing Jobs has to charge a fee. Otherwise they would not be able to operate.
There is no commitment obligation for a minimum number of articles to be done in a specific period of time!
Keep in mind that you don’t need experience to get these writing jobs. Some people just want someone who can write better than they can. The main problem that people run into when looking for these jobs is that they don’t know where to look for them. RealWritingJobs.com is the PERFECT Starting Point!
