Are you Properly Communicating with Clients?

As a freelance writer in today’s day and age, you are more than likely using email the majority of the time. Sure, you may have some phone conversations from time to time, but they are usually few and far between. Although you may think that communicating via email is straight forward, there are some things that you need to keep in mind.

First things first, you should always be professional when exchanging emails. This holds true no matter if you are dealing with a client, or somebody who is thinking about working with you. This means that you should properly address the other party, while keeping a professional tone throughout. On top of this, make sure that you never use any curse words. Time after time I receive emails that are full of off-color words that should not be used in a professional environment.

As a freelance writer, clients expect you to catch any spelling and/or grammar mistakes. This is more important when you are exchanging email with potential clients. You need to prove to these people that you are capable of working for them. If your first email is full of errors, you are not putting your skills in good light.

This may not sound like a big deal to you, but it is important to a successful freelance writing career. If you are going to send emails, you might as well do things right. This means being professional, no curse words, and no grammar/spelling mistakes. Surely this is something you can handle, right? After all, you are a writer!
