Get Writing Clients: From Craigslist?

Can you get writing clients from Craigslist?


You may need to sift through a lot of junk jobs, step past clients who want you to work for free (in exchange for high volume… and a by-line…. but helloooooo – FREE?), and if you find a gig that looks promising, you’ll be in competition with a lot of other writers who found that gig.

But, it can be done. And it can turn into something great.

I know, because one of my best, longest-term writing partners came from Craigslist. This was several years ago, but I was swamped and needed help on some SEO articles, so went looking to see if there was anyone listing SEO article writing services.

Sure enough – there he was. And he’s become like a right arm to me in my business.

Want some tips on using Craigslist?

  • Work both directions on Craigslist. Post your own ad, but also reply to gigs that are posted. To be completely honest, they’re both long-shots, but they’re free and you’ll be doing something to get clients, which is always better than doing nothing.
  • Have your article samples or portfolio ready. Nobody will hire you without knowing you can write – and you don’t want to keep them waiting while you whip up something to show off.
  • Craigslist is organized by city, so looking for work could take a l-o-n-g time! You might want to try using a free site called You just enter something like “article writing” or “blog writer” and it’ll go to work searching for you.
Success rewards action, dear readers. Focus on this one task: get writing clients.
