Why you aren’t earning more Money as a Freelance Writer

There are many reasons as to why you may not be earning as much money as you should. When you know why you are on the low end of the totem pole, you will find it much easier to reach the top.

Here are three reasons why you may be stuck in a rut and not earning as much as others in the freelance writing industry:

1. Are you quoting too low when a new client gets in touch with you? This is a common problem, especially amongst freelance writers who feel that they have to lower prices in order to garner business. This is why it is important to have a firm rate sheet in place from day one. When you quote a fair and reasonable price, you will find that plenty of clients want to work with you and that you are earning a nice wage.

2. You may be spending too much time on the projects that you accept. This is not to say that you should rush through jobs just to get paid, but you do not want to spend too much time on menial tasks when it is not necessary. You should have a good idea of how long a project will take when you accept the job. Additionally, make sure that you track your hours, even if only roughly, so that you stay on track from start to finish.

3. To become a high earning freelance writer you need to expand your client base from time to time. You can do this through an extensive marketing plan that includes everything from cold calling to managing a website and/or blog. As you gain more high paying clients, you can get rid of those that do not pay as well. Once you get this cycle started, you will see your freelance writing income climbing as the months go by.

Do you want to earn more as a freelance writer? If so, consider if the above is causing you any problems. As you can see, all of the potential issues listed are easily remedied if you put time and effort into resolving them.
