Make Suggestions to Increase your Freelance Writing Income

Are you looking for a way to increase your freelance writing income? Instead of spending all of your time searching for new clients, you should put effort into making more money from the ones that you already have. Believe it or not, this is one of the best ways to increase your earnings each and every month.

How can you leverage current clients so that you earn more each month? One of the best ways to do this is by making suggestions. Not only will this work to your advantage, but it will do the same for the client.

For example, I recently completed a project that entailed writing 15 keyword articles. While this was a relatively small job, I really enjoyed working with the client. He paid on time, communicated his needs, and was simple to get in touch with. When the project was done, I suggested that his website would perform much better with a revamped FAQ and About page. The client quickly agreed, and immediately sent me $100 via PayPal to complete the work. If I would have never made this suggestion, this $100 would have never come my way.

When making suggestions to freelance writing clients, be sure that you do not come across as pushy. While there is nothing wrong with offering help, you don’t want the client to think that you are telling them what to do. Not only can this annoy them, but it may also keep you off of their short list should they have future projects. As long as you are courteous and respectful when making suggestions you will be just fine.

The next time that you complete a project make sure you give this a try. This technique will not be successful with every client, and in some cases it may not be appropriate to suggest another project. But remember, if you never try this you are going to be stuck attempting to increase your freelance writing income by seeking additional clients. Never forget that your current client list is one of your biggest assets.
