Maybe you have a few questions or even some doubts about becoming an online freelance editor or proofreader. Here’s the scoop:
Can You Really Make Money As a Freelance Editor?
Oh, yes! Plenty of people could benefit from your editing or proofreading skills, but not everyone is willing to pay for them. Finding the right clients is the key to earning money as an editor.
How Much Do Freelance Editors Make?
Like any job, this varies. As a freelancer, you set your own rates by finding that happy medium where you can find clients willing to pay your wage while still earning a good living. According to Glassdoor in 2019, the average freelance editor salary is around $50,000 per year. See images below:
Can You Start Freelance Editing Part-Time as a Side Hustle?
Yes! I went from beginner to editing for a New York Times bestselling author in less than six months, while being a stay-at-home mom. So even if you already have a full- or part-time job, freelance editing is something you can start and build on the side.
How Fast Can a Beginner Begin Freelance Editing?
You can find online editing jobs, build an impressive portfolio with killer testimonials, and get paid to edit from the comfort of your home in six months or less.

Thankfully, these costs are minimal compared to a traditional college education and you’ll see a return on investment much faster.
