Niche Copywriting Jobs You Might Like

Quick question: Are you on LinkedIn yet?

The reason I ask is … LinkedIn.com is where business professionals (prospects for your writing services) are hanging out, talking about their industry, connecting with colleagues, and referring them to excellent resources such as SKILLED COPYWRITERS like you.

Yes, this powerful social network is where you can be talking directly with clients, potential clients, and great referral sources.

But LinkedIn is also a terrific research site for you as you look for your ideal niche because it’s a gold mine for identifying hot markets looking for writers at this very moment.

Let’s take a look …

When you fill out or enhance your LinkedIn account, you’ll want to list your copywriting skills, talents, work history, writing specialties, and more. Once you discover the right niche for you, and you’re ready to go after it — you can always change your profile to feature your niche-market focus.

But for now, complete your profile with all the phrases that relate to your writing skills: copywriter, web content writer, blogger, social media, emails, articles, marketing, etc. Whatever best fits you.

The reason is — LinkedIn will match your skills with “Jobs you may be interested in,” as you’ll see in this screenshot. If you sign up for email notifications … once a week, they’ll send you the list of suggestions. You’ll be able to see if there are a lot of opportunities for work in this niche right away — automatically.

In addition, LinkedIn has a JOBS section where you can search for jobs by all types of keywords: copywriter, editor, social media, web SEO, content, blog, etc.

I just entered the word “blog” and found a very cool opportunity for someone who’d like to blog for Savannah College of Art and Design!

Also I’ve seen jobs in the pet and veterinary world. It reinforces that I’m in a lively market.

Don’t worry if you haven’t spent a lot of time on LinkedIn. Just make sure your account profile is filled with information about your copywriting background. Then explore the JOBS page using various keywords so you can see what’s available.

This just may be the missing puzzle piece that helps you identify your niche.

Here’s why …

You may find really interesting and fun jobs in an industry you may enjoy. If you have a background and interest in Information Technology, you may be excited to see a dozen different opportunities with cloud companies, software companies, mobile app companies … who knows?

If you’re an engineer, you may discover writing jobs for engineering companies.

What if you’re interested in the green/eco-friendly market? Same deal.

See how this can work for you?

  1. With regard to getting a LinkedIn account, what suggestions would you have for someone who is new to the copywriting business but would like to create her profile (hence no work history to speak of at the moment)?

  3. Thanks for the information about how to make the most of the Linked in websitet!

    I have been a member for about 6 months.

    right now I can not afford the required cost for the package of lessons etc.. I am moving from Albuquerque, New Mexico to Madison, Wisconsin.

    that move is going to end up being costly!
