Three Ways to Increase Freelance Writing Referrals

By increasing freelance writing referrals you will be able to increase your workload and income. Of course, this is easier said than done. Referrals are a great way to take your business to the next level, but you must first learn how to get current clients to pass your name along to others.

Here are three tips for increasing referrals:

1. Ask! Does it get any easier than that? If you want a current client to refer you to others, ask them to do so if they get the chance. If you and your client are on good terms they will not have any problems trying to help you out when they can. Just remember, unless you ask you probably won’t get what you want. Sure, some clients will pass along your name without being asked to do so, but a reminder will definitely increase your chances.

2. A client will only refer you if there are happy with the results that you deliver. High quality naturally yields referrals. Your clients have a reputation just as you do, and they do not want to jeopardize this by referring somebody who does not offer quality work. No matter how big or small a job, you want to make sure that you do your best. You never know when a client will have a larger job for you, or when they will pass your name and information along to others. 

3. It is important to make it as easy as possible for a client to refer you. Make sure that they have your email address, website address, and phone number. Most referrals will send an introduction email stating how they heard about you, but I have also had some call me on the phone. Make it easy to be referred, and easy for others to get in touch with you.

With these three tips you will increase your chance of receiving freelance writing referrals. The more clients that are referring you to others, the more inquiries you will receive. All in all, it is nothing more than a numbers game!
