Weekend Quick Tip: Small Jobs can Turn Big

Like most freelance writers, you are probably interested in landing big time clients that have a lot of work and pay good money. If you don’t feel this way you are the odd man out. And while there is nothing wrong with this way of thinking, you should know that small jobs can turn big in a hurry.

Late last year I completed a small job for a client. They wanted me to write 10 “guides” for $500. This was far from a huge job, but it was simple enough and the pay was halfway decent. Although this was the only project they had for me at the time, I continued to stay in touch. Well, my persistence paid off. Last week, this same client got in touch and offered a job of 100 guides for a total of $5k. If I wouldn’t have taken on that first small project I would have never landed this contract.

Not every small job will turn big. Some of them will, some of them won’t, and with some clients you will never know what they are going to send your way in the future. But if you have the time and the pay is right, you should consider completing small projects from time to time. In more than one case this has paid off for me. Don’t be afraid to complete small jobs because you feel that they are not worth it. You never know when something small will turn into the next big thing in your freelance writing career.
