Freelance writing seems like the ultimate dream come true, doesn’t it?
You get the freedom to work for yourself, write what you want – when you want and choose who you work with.
You have complete control over your life. The only rules are the ones you make.
What could be better than that?
A step-by-step guide to setting up your freelance writing business for success, that’s what.
Before I explain what I mean, let’s talk about what usually happens.
Once you realize how awesome freelancing is, you jump in feet first. You start looking for work… and find clients who aren’t willing to pay more than $5 for 500 words.
For a while, you work long and hard. You’re convinced this is just a rite of passage that you need to cross before finding the really good gigs. Maybe once you have more writing samples,clients will pay more.
Of course, that doesn’t happen. The more you work for low pay, the more you attract low paying work.
It’s as if you’ve hit a glass ceiling you can’t break through.
That’s when you start getting disillusioned. Maybe there just isn’t any better paying work out there. You can’t spend your life working for low pay. You’re already struggling to make ends meet!
You start wishing for a do-over. A step-by-step guide that shows you:
- what to do to,
- when to do it and
- what sequence to do it in.
I know I did.
This is the part where I tell you that you made a fundamental mistake when you started freelancing. That you didn’t stop to think before making the jump. That you saw the shiny, attractive side of being a freelance writer and naively thought that was all there was to it.
But, here what I’m really going to say:
Businesses are built on mistakes. Successful businesses are built on lessons learned from those mistakes.
Which is why, I’ve created this comprehensive guide for setting up your freelance writing business. If you’re just starting out, this is your lucky day.
If you’ve been freelancing for a while, use this guide to learn from your mistakes and make changes to fix whatever’s not working in your business.
