Ever wonder how some freelance writers crank out content, market like crazy, meet client deadlines, and break into new niches?
You look at their success from the outside, and try to figure out what they’re doing that you’re not.
You try and reverse engineer it. If you can’t figure it out, you might join the pity-party of thoughts…“those freelance writers get all the breaks, or just got lucky.”
But you know what? That’s usually not the case.
Successful freelance writers usually develop their skills one query letter, one LinkedIn connection, or one letter of introduction at a time.
And it’s not a throw-spaghetti-at-the-wall approach to see what sticks. It’s a calculated approach. It’s work. It’s consistent effort.
If you want to move up, earn more, and make a living writing, you’ve got to set goals and develop ways of doing things to maximize productivity.
But what does that look like? Every freelance writer has their own way of doing things.
