I won’t say that it is very easy to start with freelancing writing work, but as soon as you start working smartly, you will start earning through your writing.
You have to start your freelancer writer career with proper planning and positive attitude. I have seen many paid writers who are having good talent and skills but they fail in their freelancing career because they don’t promote their freelancing work effectively.
Here are 5 tips which will help you to promote your freelancing work:
Blog helps you a lot when it comes to promote your writing work. You can show all your talent and skill on your blog by publishing articles of your interest. This blog would be more like portfolio of your work. You have to update your blog regularly and your blog must have “About Me” and “Contact Us” page which provide details about your freelancing work and clients can contact you directly. You can also on famous blogs to get publicity and find targeted audience.
Profile and signature
Make a killer profile and signature for yourself and use it on different social networking websites, freelancing job boards or while mailing to your clients. Your profile must include your work details ( URLs ), contact details, your AIM and your social networking websites IDs. Always keep your profile and signature updated.
Register on freelancing job board
Register yourself on freelancing job boards like freelancing.com , elance.com , guruji.com etc. There are lots of freelancing job board but you only register to few in beginning and analyze these freelancing board for good opportunity. You might not get projects as soon as you join but keep patience and be passionate, keep on biding for writing projects and try to contact with client directly for getting projects.
When I started with freelancing, I always preferred to join freelancing groups. You can exchange lots of information with other freelancers. If you will share valuable information with others, you might build a good online persona in the communities. This will result in getting noticed by other freelancer and clients.
Don’t give up
Always be positive towards your work and be ready to face problems in starting phase of your freelancing career. You should never ever give up; and give consistent efforts to your work.
