Reasons to Network with other Freelance Writers

As a freelance writer it is easy to stay to yourself, and not communicate with others. While this can be a perk of the writer’s life, this is not something that you want to take too far. By networking with other freelance writers, you will be able to take advantage of many benefits. And of course, these benefits can go a long way in helping you to become a better writer, and hopefully increase your income.

The following are three of the top reasons for networking with other freelance writers:

1. As mentioned above, being a freelance writer can be a lonely and solitary career. If you make friends and network with others, you will find people who you can communicate with via email, instant messenger, phone, and maybe even in person.

2. Even the most experienced freelance writers have questions from time to time. When you have friends in the industry, you can contact them on the spot anytime that you need help. This sure beats having to rely on a message board. Remember, this is a two way street. Make sure that you are always available to help others.

3. I have received numerous referrals from friends that I have made over the years. If you want to increase business, and there is no reason you shouldn’t, increasing referrals is a great way to do so. When you have others marketing on your behalf and sending clients your way, you will find that it is much easier to succeed.

As you can see, there are many reasons that you will want to network with other freelance writers. Take a few minutes each day to attempt to make friends in the industry. The more creative you get, the more contacts you will make!
