How to Increase your Freelance Writing Workload

Generally speaking, if you can increase your freelance writing workload you can also increase your income. In other words, more work equals more money. This is not always the case, as I have mentioned before, but it is a good rule of thumb to keep in mind.

Consider these three tips for increasing your freelance writing workload.

1. A large number of my freelance writing jobs come from current clients passing my name along to others. Make sure that you are the type of writer that people will want to refer. Getting jobs this way is a huge benefit because you do not have to spend time on marketing. Instead, the interested party comes to you.

2. Put together a resume and samples that prospective clients will want to see. Too many freelance writers make the mistake of including their favorite pieces in their portfolio, as opposed to those that will help them to garner new projects. Remember, your freelance writing portfolio will change from time to time. Once you find samples that seem to be working, stick with them for a while. Soon enough you will have confidence in your resume and portfolio.

3. Simply put, be good at what you do. This holds true no matter what type of freelancer you are. If you are not churning out good work, you are not going to succeed. Sure, you may trick a few people with sub-par work, but sooner or later you are going to hit a wall and your career will come to a grinding halt. Additionally, bad work never turns into referrals. If you are going to take the time to become a freelance writer, you might as well take the time to produce quality content. 

These are three simple tips to keep in mind if you are interested in increasing your freelance writing workload. When you do more work, there is a good chance that you will see a positive increase in your monthly income.
