Many writers are drawn to freelancing because they want to write magazine articles and books, and that’s great. But if you want to make more money as a freelancer, don’t overlook one of the most lucrative writing niches there is: freelancing for businesses and corporations.
It used to be that a “real” journalist wouldn't consider doing public relations or corporate writing. It wasn’t seemly. Now that's changing, and plenty of freelancers are finding that business writing can boost their income. More writers are branching out into various types of corporate work, whether it's writing for external or internal corporate publications, or doing public relations or marketing work.
