7 Tactics I Use to Find Unpublished Freelance Writing Jobs
I discuss seven tactics I use to find freelance writing jobs. I
manage to stay pretty busy as a freelance writer.
And even when Iím not, I
donít worry because I know that the way I market is counter to how others
Iíve been blessed with the ďmind of a
marketer,Ē so to speak. Itís whatís accounted for my freelance writing
success over the years. I canít tell you how many times Iíve told somebody
about a marketing technique I use and Iíll get a response like, ďI never
would have thought to do that.Ē
Of the techniques discussed, youíll learn
find hundreds of prospects who need your
freelance writing skill
who have never been contacted by other writers;
find tens of thousands of prospects you can
contact to pitch to on a regular basis (yes, tens of thousands) Ė and itís
sell practically every word you write (Iíll
show you three ways I do this, which is why I donít even worry when I donít
have a client project on my desk);
turn clients into repeat clients;
double Ė or even triple Ė the amount of
business you already have;
compose sample queries that pre-sell clients on
your freelance writing services;
market to many businesses at once, instead of
one business at a time;
develop the mind of a marketer; and
so much more!
sum up the ebook in the following manner:
Developing the Mind of a

successful. Couple this with consistency Ė and you have a winning formula.
If you just utilize one of the methods
mentioned within on a consistent basis, youíll be well on your way to
developing a successful freelance writing business.
I decided to write this e-book for three
First because many existing and aspiring freelancers email me asking how to go
about finding freelance writing work.
This made me realize that the problem many freelancers have is their inability
to effectively search for assignments beyond the standard freelance writing
I mean, many are just paralyzed. They have
no idea how to take the first step, ie, where to start looking for work, whether
to market online or off, what niche to target, how to compose a proper query
how often to send it, etc.
Weíre talking wholly and completely lost.
The second reason I decided to write this e-book is because I tend to stay
relatively busy. This leaves little time for responding
in-depth to questions and emails from readers who write in. Many need much more
help than the advice I can fire off in an email on a given work day. They need a
tutorial Ė ie, this ebook.
The third reason I wanted to write this ebook is because information gets
buried. Iíve dispensed a lot of information over the years on how
to find freelance writing jobs Ė on my website, on my blog, in articles
distributed to article marketing directories, in guest posts on other blogs,
But, information gets buried Ė never to
be read again. I liken it to the news Ė whatís hot one day is forgotten the
next. This ebook puts all of the tactics
Iíve discussed over the years Ė and still use -- in one place. In
essence, this is a handy reference guide on how to find freelance writing work.
Youíll probably come back to it again and again, so feel free
to print it out, punch holes in it and file it in a binder for easy, future
Enough to Be Busy
Iíve been a freelance writer since 1993.
Doing this for so long has taught me how to market outside the box, so to speak.
And, since I started to take on SEO writing
the fall of 2007, Iíve never been busier. I got so busy that within
the first 10 weeks, I had to hire help. This got me to wondering, ďWhy am I
able to keep relatively busy when so many struggle?Ē
I outline some of my thoughts on this in
One Freelance Writer is Finding Success as an SEO Writer, (read the three tips I give
at the end of the article).
