5 Ways Freelance Writers Can Earn More Without Marketing
Hands up, writers — who loves to do marketing and reach out to new prospects? Yeah. I thought so. Well, here’s a piece of good news. You can earn more without having to talk to strangers, if you have a great client or two already. Or even a medium-good one.
More cash doesn't have to come from marketing
Notes that the methods are easy, but many times overlooked. Why not earn more cash if it's easy, especially when freelance writers tend to receive less than they deserve? You can gain more if you are willing to consider:
- Requesting more cash from regular freelance clients. A freelance writer should never go more than one year working with a client without asking for a raise, and you can do so in as little as 3 months. You are valuable to them, and they want to keep you happy for making their life easier. Just ask.
- Seeking out introductions from people you have in your network. People you can ask include your: bosses, editors, marketing managers, clients. This is an easy way to meet new people who might have a significant amount of work for you.
- Creating new project ideas to sell to your clients. After you have blogged for a client for six months to a year, you know a lot about their business, and you can analyze the client to discover what needs you might fill. Search for something you might offer to bring in more revenue. Ideas include: newsletters, blogs, videos, speeches, etc.
- Increase the work that you are currently doing for a client. If they are only blogging once a week, suggest that they increase to daily posts. If they send out a newsletter once a month, see if you can sell the idea of once a week.
- Write and create your own product and product lines. As a skilled freelance writer, you have everything you need to publish ebooks, mini courses, videos, and other products on your own. This is the best idea as it holds the most potential for cash and independence.
