Some ways to get your first writing job:-

1. If you have already got clients who trust you, you can ask some of them if they would be interested in this powerful marketing tool.

If you can convince your clients that it’s a powerful tool and if they are sure about your ability to write good copywriting material they might give you a white paper writing job.

2. Look for people who are interested in getting a brochure or articles written. When you come across a client who is interested in getting a brochure written, you could tell them more about white papers. You could let them know that these papers are better than brochures and if they are interested they can get one written by you.

You could also ask people who are looking for writers who can write articles or blog posts, if they would be interested in a white paper. Let them know that it is better than a regular article and will help them market their products and services better.

3. Write a white paper for a lower price.

4. Ask someone like a friend or a relative to help you out. Ask them if they would like to have one written. Then depending on their budget you could write one for less or for free. It will be worth it, as you will get a sample, which will help you land, high paying white paper writing jobs in the future.
