How to get hired for freelance writing jobs

  1. 1. How To Get Hired For Freelance Writing JobsYou must understand that the secret to getting hired for freelance writing jobs isdelivering what the customer expects. Some people say that the most importantthing about writing is the knowledge of the subject, but I think it has more to dowith the writing skills.What You Need Remember As A Freelance WriterIf your job is to create quality content, you must not limit yourself to some area ofexpertise, because you will lose so many potential customers in the process.You must ask yourself, "Why do small and large businesses hire writers when theyhave their own specialists who know more about their products?" That, in fact, isa good question.The reason why content creators are so in demand is because they have a certainskill - a gift, if you will. Selling products is not always about knowing everythingabout it, but how you communicate their value to potential customers. You canwitness this phenomenon in schools and colleges, where your professors knoweverything about the topic, but because they do not have the skills to explain thematerial, students tend to fail.
  2. 2. Thats why companies hire writers - to help them communicate the value of theirservices; educating customers, prospects and own employees.You Have Customers - They Just Havent Realized It YetAs a writer, your job is to remind everyone of your talents, and how they canbenefit others. Often you will find that programmers or engineers refuse to talk towriters, because they dont have a connection with them. They like tocommunicate with like-minded people and ask them to write their trainingcontent, documentation or promotional ads.But soon - when it is already too late - they realize that their written content isbad and does not teach anything, explain anything, or get people to use theirservices. As a result, businesses lose a lot of prospects and money, which in oureconomy is a luxury that no one can afford.How To Find CustomersThis is the most difficult part - to get the message out. But you are lucky; we livein the age of Internet and technology, where you dont have to go door-to-door tooffer your services. I recommend you put up a website or a blog, where you must:a) Demonstrate your skills (show people some samples of your work)b) Prove them that for a quality job you are asking a fair salaryAlso, a good idea is to put your ads on some message boards or buy a bannerspace on a very popular website.
