How To Solve Common Problems Of Part-Time Freelance Writing

Most freelance writers only get enough work to work part-time. This can become quite an issue because you don’t make enough money to pay the bills and you won’t have time to get a full time job. You want to utilize your services and get the most out of each day. You have to find a happy medium where you have enough work to keep you busy and pay all of your bills, but not too much that you have to start turning work away. Here are some ways to solve the problem of only having enough work for part time. You can use your free time to at least build your business.

Design a website

If you have down time, use one of those inexpensive website designing resources and build your website. You will need to create content for it, add some samples, and design it. Spend a few hours each day working on it. That way even if you aren’t actually making money, you are still working on your business. When it is complete, take a chance on yourself and get it hosted and online. Then, you can link it to your profile or add it to your business cards to try and push for new business. When you have a website, you look more committed to your job and more professional. It can also gain you some new clients. When clients are looking for services, your website may pop up and then they will contact you.

Improve your portfolio

Add new samples to your portfolio, replace old ones, or just make the ones that you list better. It is one of the best ways to utilize your time because it will make it easier to get new clients. They will see the samples and that will put you at an advantage over your competitors.

When you are only freelance writing part time, take that extra time drudging up business or building your business. You want to at least dedicate a certain amount each day to your business. Don’t take too many days off or too much time off just because you don’t have work to do. Look for new jobs or look for new ways to make money and build your company. The freelances that do this don’t stay part timers for long. They are soon deciding what to do first.

Pitch your services

You should be able to learn if clients have worked with freelancers in the past and what skills they look for in a good freelance writer. This will help you know how to pitch your services and develop a winning proposal.
