Weekend Quick Tip: Reliable Phone and Internet

As a freelance writer, you need many things to succeed. Some of these details you think about everyday, but others may slip through the cracks. One thing I found out early on is that you need a reliable phone and internet connection in order to succeed. While this may not be 100 percent true for everybody, it is in most cases. Simply put, most freelance writers communicate with their clients via the internet. That being said, I talk on the phone with clients, freelance writing course members, and other professionals a few times per day.

If you do not have a reliable phone and internet connection, you should do something right away to change this. If you live in the United States, it is not difficult to get your hands on both of these. Of course, there are other parts of the world where it is a bit more difficult to find both services at an affordable price.

Can I use my personal phone line for business use? For about one year, I used my personal cell phone for freelance writing business as well. Soon enough, I wanted to take my business to the next level so I purchased a separate line. Although this costs more, it gives a professional look and allows me to better separate my personal and business lives.

If you do not have a reliable phone and internet connection, start shopping for a solution right away. As a freelance writer, it is essential that you have access to the internet for finding jobs, communicating with clients, and much more. And even though you may not use the phone as your primary means of communication, you never know when a client or potential buyer will want to speak with you in real time as opposed to email.
