Freelancer’s can spend nearly almost as much time marketing themselves and running their business as they do performing their work. Freelance writing is a highly competitive field:
- many writers choose their freelance careers for the flexibility and control
- some writers freelance by default: they were laid off their corporate job, or suffered another sort of career derailment
- many PR agencies are now promoting their content writing services
How can a freelance writer compete? In addition to delivering quality content on time and on budget, I’ve found one of the best ways for a freelance writer to stay competitive and attract new clients is to develop stretch skills.
