Three things to do on Slow Days
It is inevitable that you will experience slow days as a freelance writer. But just because you do not have much writing to do does not mean that you should sit back and relax. Instead, do something that will improve your chance of future success.
Here are three things to do on slow days:
1. Market, market, market. The more clients you have the less chance there is that things will slow down in the future. It is important to market your services when times are slow, as well as when you have plenty of work keeping you busy. Simply put, marketing is the lifeblood of a successful freelance writing career.
2. Touch base with past clients. Believe it or not, many freelance writers forget about those they have worked with and simply hope that they will come back to them when ready â€“ this is a mistake. From time to time you should contact past clients to see if you can help in any way. Even if you get turned down right now, at the very least it will keep you fresh in the clientâ€™s mind.
3. Work on your own projects. Do you have any personal projects that need to be worked on? I know I do. This can range from a blog to creating niche sites and much more.
Even though slow days as a freelance writer are never much fun, you can keep yourself moving forward in many ways. The three ideas above are great ways to spend your time when there is no client work to keep you busy.
