Freelance mastery: What would you do if you had a direct connection to a never-ending demand for your services. Who were willing to pay you thousands of dollars every week for your help?

Setting Up Shop:

Believe it or not, this is where the foundation of your business comes into play. If you overlook this stage of getting your freelance business off the ground. You will suffer all the way down the line.

By setting up shop, I mean that before you write a single word. You will need to plan on paper what your goals are. Where you will be working and what you need in terms of supplies. Furniture and equipment to make your operation as seamless as possible.

Finding & Securing Work:

There are excellent opportunities online for good freelance writers. However, finding those sources can prove to be frustrating if you don’t have a roadmap.

You can come to a site and not be sure whether it’s a real freelance opportunity. Or a scam disguised to take your money and deliver information that’s freely available elsewhere online.

By cutting through the fluff, I have listed some of my best sources for sites where you can get going making money right away.

Building Your Client List:

This is the core to your business. Having satisfied clients is what keeps a business growing. In order to build your client list, you will need to use various avenues including online and offline advertising. Word of mouth, press releases and assorted other methods to advertise your fees and services. Client building is a step-by-step process and it requires a dedication to customer service excellence and making the each customer feel special.

The effort you put forth with each client will pay off in repeat sales. And give you a group of people who trust your judgment on other items available.

Defining Price Structure:

When you set up a pricing structure, you want to take into account a number of things including how many jobs will you be handling personally. If you are going to outsource any jobs and the payments made to your subcontractors. The turnaround time on the web content produced and the amount of research you will need to perform in order to write the article.

Pricing structures must also take into account price versus what the market will bear. If you price your jobs too high, you will not get enough work to sustain your business.

On the flip side, if you price your services too low, you may be inundated with work. But you will be working at a rate where you need to produce 2 to 3 times as much as your competitors in order to make the same amount of money.

All of these factors need to be considered when you are setting out to price jobs. In addition, you will want to do some market testing to see which price structure brings you the best results.

Winning The Bidding War:

When you look for work on the freelance auction sites, you need to know how to win the bidding war without bidding so low that you get the job but lose money on the production of the job.

This takes finesse and know how, but mostly it takes self-confidence in your writing ability and the willingness to stick to your guns. Rest assured that SEO article and copywriters are in high demand and it looks like it will remain that way for years to come.

Avoiding Freelance Scams:

There are scams everywhere online and freelance writing is no exception. There are a number of sites that will change you $30 to $50 just to give you a list of freelance writing sites that you could have found for nothing by using a simple search query.

If you arrive at a site that changes you upfront for information on how to find freelance writing jobs, read the fine print.

More than likely they are not going to be of any help to you, and will probably supply you with a list that you could compile yourself. The basic search engine query is the best place to start.
