Home About Products I Swear By Free Report Contact 10 Surprising Places to Find Freelance Writing Clients By Samar Owais Leave a Comment “Where do I find freelance writing clients?” It’s a question that plagues every freelancer at the start of their career. It’s a question I asked myself over and over again. It’s also the most common question I’m asked by budding freelancers. Smart freelancers already know content mills and bidding sites aren’t a good option. To establish and grow your freelance writing business, you need to find clients who know the value of a good writer and can pay decent rates. When I started freelancing in 2008, content mills were the default option. Naturally, I started with them. At the time, I thought I’d hit the jackpot. I couldn’t have been more wrong! It took me years to break free from content mills and find better-paying jobs. Longer still to establish my reputation as a writer and charge premium rates. I would have succeeded a lot sooner if I’d only known where to look for clients – the right ones. Those years and my struggle isn’t something I want other freelance writers to face. It’s why I’ve compiled a list of “10 Surprising Places to Find Freelance Writing Clients”. Not only have I used these places to find clients, but I’ve seen other freelancers do it too. This report will teach you how to contact the clients you find in these places and show you how other freelancers have done it. If you’d like to find out where to find the right freelance writing clients, just click on the image below. This Report Is For You If… [Read more…] Filed Under: Clients The Great Freelance Rate Debate: Should You Publish Your Rates Online? By Samar Owais 11 Comments Most freelancers cringe at the thought of publishing their rates online. Who am I kidding? Most freelancers don’t even entertain the idea. It’s okay. I get it. It’s a scary thought. To tell you the truth, I was one of those freelancers too when I started out. Publishing your freelance rates online is a statement – a bold one. Publishing your rates online is a declaration of your value as a freelancer.Click To Tweet It’s a very public declaration of the considerable value you put on yourself as a freelancer. It tells prospective clients that you aren’t open to negotiations about your rates. That if they decide to work with you, it’s because they want to and not because you have to. I’ve always been in awe of how much power publishing my rates online gave me in my business. [Read more…] Filed Under: Rates 5 Brutal Truths About Setting Your Freelance Writing Rates By Samar Owais 31 Comments Freelance writing rates can make the best of us feel like the lone fish in a sea of freelancers who know what they’re doing. Before I figured out my freelance writing rates, I felt the same way. I was convinced I was the only one having so much trouble with setting my rates. Every time I had to quote my rates, my internal dialogue went something like this: Are my rates too low? Am I undercharging myself? Will this client be able to pay my rates? Oh god, what if the client tells me my rates are too high? If you ask yourself any of these questions, you’re in the same boat as I was. Depending on how long you’ve been freelancing and the kind of clients you’re attracting, it can take you anywhere from a few months to a few years to figure out your rates. Since I’d rather you spend those months and years growing your freelance business, I’m sharing the five brutal truths I discovered about setting your freelance writing rates. [Read more…] Filed Under: Rates How to Attract Freelance Writing Clients with Optin Feature Box WordPress Plugin By Samar Owais 15 Comments Editor’s note: There’s a 20% discount code for an awesome WordPress plug-in at the end of this post so don’t forget to scroll all the way down! When it comes to finding freelance work, nothing works better than an email list filled with prospective clients. Think about it – an email list full of prospective clients just waiting to hear from you. That’s the proverbial golden egg! If you’re thinking “Samar, that sounds great, but it’s just not realistic”, let me tell you about my friend Henneke Duistermaat of Enchanting Marketing. Wait, I’ll let her tell you about it: Henneke My approach has been pretty low key. Rather than sell my copywriting services, I show potential clients I can write. I share my ‘secret’ tricks on how to write persuasive copy in my free snackable writing course (and on my blog, of course). In my email footer, I have the text “Would you like to get in touch? Just hit reply. I’d love to hear from you.” As my email list grows reasonably fast, this generates more copywriting inquiries than I can handle. If your list doesn’t grow so fast, then you might want to make that statement a little bolder, like: Would you like help with your copy? Just hit reply. – Henneke, Enchanting Marketing. Henneke didn’t originally set up her email newsletter to attract clients. Prospective clients contacting her through her newsletter were a happy byproduct of publishing content that showed off her expertise as a writer. Instead of writing about how to be a copywriter, she wrote about: Writing mesmerizing sales copy like Apple Creating mouth-watering blog post titles Mastering the art of writing persuasive emails Crafting sales copy that doesn’t come across as sleazy or pushy Boosting business by wooing readers through your copy If you were looking for a copywriter, who would you hire? A copywriter who blogs about being a copywriter, Or Henneke, who writes about copy that converts and showcases her skills as a writer? Henneke might not have intentionally set out to create an email list full of prospective clients, but that’s exactly what happened. And now that you know it can be done successfully, you can do the same for your business. Don’t spend hours on marketing tactics that may or may not get you clients. Focus on the one tactic that has been proven to work. So set up an email list, write content for prospective clients, and focus on growing your email list. Setting up an email list for your blog or website (or both) One of my biggest pet peeves about marketing advice is that it tells you what to do but not how to do it. Take this post, for example. The advice is great. Set up an email newsletter and target prospective customers. But how are you going to set up an email newsletter sign up form on your blog? You’re a writer, not a web designer or developer! You don’t know how to do all the tech stuff. On top of it all, you’re a bootstrapping freelancer. You don’t have the money to hire a web designer either. And because I hate advice that tells you what to do, but not how to do it, I’m going to tell you what I did and tell you about the tool I use. Your best option is to find a tool that sets up an email newsletter opt-in box on your website for you. Introducing: The Plugmatter Optin Feature Box WordPress Plugin When I was setting up Freelance Flyer, I knew I wanted a subscription form at the very top of my site. Derek Halpern of Social Triggers has one and he swears by how well it converts. I didn’t want to launch Freelance Flyer without one and I couldn’t afford a designer either. To make matters worse, I couldn’t find a WordPress plug-in that helped me set up a sign up form the way I wanted. The launch of Freelance Flyer got delayed by four months because I couldn’t find a solution to my problem. All I knew was that I wasn’t launching without an email newsletter opt-in box. Then I came across Plugmatter’s WordPress plug-in called Optin Feature Box and I … couldn’t believe my eyes. It felt too good to be true. I was sure it was some kind of a gimmick and it wouldn’t be as awesome as they said it was. How Plugmatter’s Optin Feature Box won me over Plugmatter won me over within minutes of landing on their website. All it took was their live demo tool. I was able to see exactly how their plug-in worked. I could customize every single bit of the sign up form – from the colors to the text and even the image! All this before I’d even checked the price tag. After I’d designed the opt-in box to match my site’s design, I knew I had to have it. It was such a relief to realize that it was an incredibly affordable plugin. Phew! Using Feature Optin Box is an absolute breeze. The folks at Plugmatter have created detailed documentation to walk you through the setup too. But if you know your way around WordPress, you wouldn’t need them. They’ve made it that simple! Now before we get to the price, here’s a brief look at the features: 10 Fully customizable templates – it lets you customize everything! Mobile responsive templates – your opt-in form would look amazing even on tablets and mobiles. Video templates – as easy as entering your video’s YouTube or Vimeo URL Custom design – Just copy/paste your HTML or CSS code. A/B split testing – for maximum conversion Mini feature boxes – for posts and pages you don’t want to display the full template on. Much, much, more. For more details, just go to their site and check it out. But wait!
