Increase Orders through Marketing, Proper Communication

As a freelancer writer you should take great pride in finding repeat, long term clients. There is nothing wrong with completing a “one and done” project for a client, but in the long run this is not the best way to build a successful freelance writing career. Your goal should be for every client to order from you on a regular basis. Again, this is not always possible, but it is a goal that you can set for yourself nonetheless.

There are two ways that you can increase orders and establish long term relationships with clients:

1. Learn how to successfully market your freelance writing services. If you struggle in this area you will want to check out my post on the many different ways of marketing. This will put you on the path to developing and maintaining an efficient and results producing freelance writing marketing plan.

2. Communicate with clients. I have said time after time that you need to ask for more work in many cases. In other words, once you complete a job for a client make sure you ask for another. If you are writing for a magazine, for instance, have another query ready before you complete the current article. This will give the editor something to think about, and hopefully allow you to form a long lasting relationship. Remember, many clients want to work with a freelance writer on an ongoing basis. If you provide quality work and are able to provide more, many clients are willing to sign you on for the long haul.

If you know how to market your services and are willing to communicate with clients, you will find yourself landing long term gigs time after time. Not every client will want to work with you long term, but many of them will. As more and more clients send regular work, your freelance writing career and income will grow at a steady pace.
