Know the Job Requirements before starting

As a freelance writer you will be taking on a variety of jobs on a regular basis. This can become confusing if you are not organized. It is very important to know the job requirements of each project before starting. To go along with this, you must also keep these requirements in mind as you move through the project. If you don’t you may end up with a completed job that is far from what the client is looking for.

What type of job requirements will you face as a freelance writer? This depends on two factors: the type of project and the client. For instance, the requirements for an SEO article are going to be much different than a feature article. For an SEO article your client may tell you to use a specific keyword a specific number of times. But with a feature article you will not be dealing with these details but instead others such as overall length, number of sources, interviews, sidebar content, etc.

As noted above, the client you are working with will determine the requirements for the project. You will find out soon enough that every client has their own way of doing things. I have clients who believe that SEO articles should be 500 words with a density of three percent. But on the other side I also deal with clients who feel that 300 words and once percent density is best for search engines. As you can see, it is important to get used to dealing with a variety of clients.

Before starting any job you should be 100 percent aware of the requirements. Since each client is unique you should never base one project on another. Instead, know exactly what the client wants and use these requirements to guide you through the project from start to finish.
