Repeat Work: The Lifeblood of a Freelance Writer

For a freelance writer to succeed, repeat work is a must. When it comes down to it, “one and done jobs” are not going to get you very far. Sure, you can make some money this way, but you need to keep clients coming back time and time again. This is how I have grown my freelance writer career from $0 to $5k to $10k per month, and something that you will definitely want to keep fresh on your mind.

I found one of my biggest repeat clients at GetAFreelancer, even though I did not see this coming initially. Up front, they asked for 100 articles at $10/each. Since they were only short pieces of about 200 words, I decided to go for it. Over the past year, they have paid me more than $7k for similar work. The moral of this story: when you start working for a client, you never know if it will turn into repeat jobs in the future.

The best way to secure repeat work is to offer your best the first time around. Simply put, if the client does not like your writing on the first project, why would they offer you more in the future? This alone is reason enough for you to put your best skills forward on each and every project.

Obviously, if a client tells you that repeat jobs are going to be available, you should fall over yourself trying to win the project.

The best type of client is the one that comes back for more, time and time again. Some clients will send one job right after the next, whereas others will wait for weeks or maybe even months. It comes down to what they need, and of course, how much money they can afford to spend.

Although repeat work is huge in the freelance writing industry, this holds true among other jobs as well. Everybody from web designers to car manufacturers know that repeat customers can help them to grow their business, while increasing profits.
