Low rate of pay for work requested

It seems like many of the jobs require a great deal of writing for the amount the clients are willing to pay. Writing 10,000 words for $25? Is anyone else finding most of the posted jobs to be for extremely low compensation?

Set up job feeds with parameters you prefer, so that hopefully only writing jobs you'd actually consider show up.

 

There are cheap clients here (and freelancers who will work for them), and there are clients willing to pay ... just takes a little effort to find them.

Thank you. I will tweak the parameters and see if that weeds it out. I am discouraged!

Yep.

 

I'd target a specific market rather than the general "Freelance Writer."

 

And state directly what kind of writing services that you offer to clients.

Thanks. I will be more specific and see if that changes anything.
