Freelance Writing Resume and About Page

If you are going to be a successful freelance writer you must also be a successful salesperson. Although this may sound difficult, anybody can learn to sell themselves; it just takes a bit of time and some practice.

Generally speaking, your freelance writing resume and website’s about page are essential to a successful career. Sure, samples will help you to obtain jobs, but your resume and about page will help to peak a potential clients interest in your work.

Here are several points that you should consider adding to your resume and about page:

1. A quick overview of who you are. This does not have to be anything special; just some information to show potential clients what you are all about.

2. Credentials. This can be difficult if you are new to freelance writing, but if you think long and hard you can fill up this area. Include past jobs, academic degrees, and any awards that you may have won.

3. Information on the services that you specialize in. While you want to include a variety of offerings, make sure that you do not overdo this section. For instance, you could include writing, proofreading, and editing. You want to show what you offer, but also that you specialize in particular areas. In other words, don’t spread yourself too thin.

4. Within each specialization you want to add more depth. Writing should include sub-points such as web copy, sales letters, brochures, etc.

5. If you have a lot of experience, include a partial past client list. This is definitely a good idea if you have worked with “big name” clients. When a prospect sees that you have experience in their industry, they are much more likely to choose you as the service provider.

Make sure you spend plenty of time putting together the best possible freelance writing resume and about page.
