How to Choose Which Industry to Write For

Have you ever wondered which industry you should write for as a freelance writer? This video is for you! Learn how to choose which industry is right for you based on your interests, financial targets, and long-term career goals.

3 Questions to Ask Yourself to Decide Which Industry is Best for You

1. What do you enjoy?

The point of being your own boss is to do work you ENJOY in a way that lights you up. So this is always a worthy starting place! Are there certain things you love to research, share with friends and family, or do on the weekends? These can be great industries to start with, because you can get PAID to research and write about them.

2. What do you have expertise in?

What has your career been up until now? If you enjoy that field, you could always write about that niche, since you have expertise in that industry in a way other writers do not. Consider any certifications, degrees, work history, or skills. They could all be an industry you choose to niche into (or start with) as a writer!

3. What opportunities are presenting themselves?

I personally recommend that new writers don’t overthink their niche *too* much. Because you might receive opportunities in an unexpected area, which could give you your first income source and experiences as a writer!

I stayed open in the beginning, and I learned so much about which industries I enjoyed (and some surprised me) and which I didn’t. Some businesses will make excellent clients, even in industries you wouldn’t expect. And you might find that you learn something new and find a new passion from staying open!
