To show my appreciation to my readers I have decided to offer a 25 percent discount to anybody who wants to sign up for my freelance writing course in January. Instead of paying the normal rate of $100 you will only be charged $75 for the first month. Of course, those who are already enrolled will be able to take advantage of the discount as well.
At this time, I have 15 members in the course. That leaves five open spots for the new year. If you are interested in more information take a closer look at the â€œfreelance writing courseâ€ page at the top of the blog. There you will find more details on the course including what to expect, what you will learn, testimonials, and much more.
As usual, I am expecting the spots to fill up within a day or so. To get started, or to ask any related questions, send an email to info (at) chrisblogging (dot) com.
I am looking forward to working with some of you one-on-one in the new year!
As a freelance writer you are responsible for more than writing. You must also take care of everything from customer service to accounting duties and much more. Whether or not your clients are happy rests solely on your shoulders. If you are not keeping your clients happy this may not work out well for you in the end. After all, an upset client may find it easier to hire a new freelance writer than to deal with you for much longer. While everybody loses clients from time to time, you donâ€™t want this to happen because they are upset with your performance.
How can you tell if your clients are happy? This can be hard to do at times. For one, if your clients keep sending you work they must be happy with what you are giving them. If they werenâ€™t they would not want to send you regular projects.
Have you ever thought about asking your clients if they are happy with your performance? This may sound silly, but it is easy enough. You can use something to the effect of:
Good morning â€“
I wanted to send you a quick note to let you know how much I appreciate working with you. Am I living up to your expectations? I want to make sure that you are happy with my performance. If there is anything else I can do to better our relationship please let me know.
Soon enough you will see just what your clients think of you. If there is something wrong they will tell you which will allow you to make the proper changes.
This holiday season I have received several gifts from clients. I like to think that this means they are happy with my work, and are looking forward to an even better relationship in the new year. If you receive gifts from your freelance writing clients it is safe to say that you are doing something right. Have any of your clients sent something special your way?
If you are unsure of whether or not your clients are pleased with your performance you should do some work to find out. Remember, you always want to keep clients happy!Â
Are you anxious to get off to a good start in the new year? If so, there are many things you can do to better the chance of this happening. Have you taken the time to talk to clients about projects in the new year? This is something you definitely want to do sooner rather than later. Not only will this give you the chance to plan but it will do the same for your clients.
What should you ask about? Simply put, you want to make sure every client knows you are willing, able, and excited to continue your relationship in 2009. Remember, sometimes all it takes is a little push for a client to give you more work. And this is something you can work to your advantage in the new year.
Just as you are setting goals and a roadmap for 2009 all of your freelance writing clients are doing the same. And while you are worrying about who you are going to work for, your clients are worrying about which freelancers they will use, etc. This is why you need to stay fresh in their mind at all times.
If you have yet to talk with your current clients about projects in the new year you are making a mistake. This is the last week to get in touch, so donâ€™t delay any longer. You want to make sure that you hit the ground running in 2009!
