Most freelancers will admit that they are not in the industry solely to be free. They also want to make money and as much of it as possible. The problem with this desire is that many of the companies and clients who seek freelancers out do so specifically to lower their costs. This means that many of the newcomers who come into the field with dreams of riches will end up disappointed. Here are some tips that can help you increase your chances of doing a little bit better.
Everyone who has ever done anything has been new to it for a little while. That is inevitable. What you can prevent, however, is going into the industry knowing nothing. You can learn as much as possible before you put yourself out there looking for jobs. That way when you first get hired you can bypass the lower paid jobs and leave them for less informed writers.
Even if you learn everything you can and write very well, there should be a ceiling to what you will charge. There are better writers than you out there and some of them are willing to do what you will do for a fraction of what you would charge. A few of them may even do it better. Charge what you are worth but do not start thinking that you can defraud your clients.
Always assume that someone out there is working in their free time to become a better writer than you currently are. With this in mind, you should be continuously updating your skills. Learn not just about writing but current events, silence, coding, anything you think may come in handy eventually.
If you want consistent jobs, it helps to have a team. This way you can accept more jobs and spread them out and be known for your consistent availability.
There are bad people in every industry mingling with the good ones. This is true even of clients. Look out for jobs that sounds unrealistically good. They are most likely scams that aim to defraud you of your hard work.
The journey to the highest paying jobs will still be difficult. Having read this article, however, you will have a few tools to make it shorter.
