Three Ways to land new Clients Today

The more clients you land the more money you will earn – this is usually how it goes. For this reason, every freelance writer should be doing what he/she can to find as much work as possible. Even though landing new clients can be difficult, there are things you can do to better your chance of making this happen.

1. Ask your current clients for help. This is something that many freelancers overlook. If you have a good relationship with a client there is nothing wrong with asking them to send your name out to others who may be interested in what you offer. Don’t be pushy. Just make sure that your clients know that passing your name along would be greatly appreciated.

2. Try something different. If you never think outside the box you are going to be stuck in the same position, day after day. For example, if you usually only send cold emails you may want to mix in cold calling, face to face meetings, etc. The more ways you market your services the better chance you have of adding new clients to your list.

3. Offer something better than the competition. Can you play up the fact that you have more experience than the rest? What about your prices? Are they competitive? Give clients a reason to hire you.

As you can see, it is quite simple to get on the right track to landing new clients. There will be days when nobody wants to talk to you; expect this to happen. But on the same token, there will be times when you are “on fire” and new clients seem to be flocking your way. As long as you are always looking to land new clients, something will break soon enough.
