Can Freelance Writers be Cheap?
If you are a freelance writer you should be serious about your business including how much money you earn as well as how much you spend. Some freelance writers have a difficult time being cheap. Others have a difficult time spending any money. Where do you fit in?
I have said many times in the past that one of the biggest advantages of being a freelance writer is the cheap cost of startup. This is the case right now, and probably will be for many more years to come. So in short, freelance writers can and should be cheap â€“ especially when they are first starting their career.
Of course, there is a big difference between being cheap and not spending one dime no matter what comes up. You have to be willing to part with money if you are going to grow your business. I buy supplies from time to time, while also hiring others who can help me take my projects and career to the next level. For instance, I am always on the lookout for experienced designers and programmers. These types of professionals may charge a lot of money for their services, but in the long run it is well worth it.
Not only can freelance writers be cheap, but they should get used to this way of doing things. If you are spending money uncontrollably and blowing through all your profits something is wrong. Simply put, it is relatively inexpensive to become a freelance writer and sustain this type of career.Â
