Turning One Freelance Writing Job into Two

The more freelance writing jobs that you have in the pipeline, the more money you are going to make. So wouldn’t it be nice if the clients that you currently have would start to offer you more projects? Well, there is a simple way for you to turn one freelance writing job into another and so on. The secret of doing this is easier than you may think: all you have to do is ask.

To illustrate this, let’s take a look at one of my business clients that I have been working with for more than a year. The first job that they ever asked me to complete was 100 keyword articles. While these are not the largest percentage of my business, I do write them from time to time. I figured that accepting the job was a great way to get my foot in the door with a mid-sized firm. Not to mention the fact that they were willing to pay nearly $20/article.

Once the first 100 articles were complete, the client expressed how pleased they were with the work. Anytime that a client tells you how good of a job you did, there is a good chance for more work in the future. Immediately upon hearing their feedback, I offered my press release writing service to them. From reading their website I knew that they were distributing press releases on a regular basis, but that they were not as well formatted as they could be.

By simply asking to become their press release writer, I received another huge project. The client hired me to write two releases a week at a rate of $50 for each one. Although my rate has since increased, the company has kept me onboard nonetheless. It has been many months since I started working for them in this capacity, and each week they send me a couple hundred dollars for these press releases.

Through my time as a freelance writer I have met many others who are aspiring to reach a high level of income. And while they may have the skill to make big money, they do not try hard enough to sell their services. Why not ask current clients if there is anything else you can do for them? As the cliché goes, “the worst thing they can say is no.” And if they do they do; it shouldn’t bother you in the slightest.

Set a goal of trying to turn one job for a client into another. By doing this, you will have a better chance of retaining clients month in and month out, while also giving yourself the chance to increase your freelance writing income.
