Are you a new freelance writer?
One of the initial fears most newbies have is pitching. This is a big step for a lot of new freelance writers.
This means they can get hired potentially! But, for many, writers think this can mean failure. A potential client comes back saying that your writing is horrible.
How dare they!!
In all reality, clients won’t let you know that you aren’t the right fit for the gig. Instead, they just don’t email you back.
And there’s one more thing to remember.
Clients Aren’t Looking For the Best Writer
You don’t have to be a great writer to be a successful writer. Clients aren’t looking for a journalist or the best grammatically-correct writer out there.
What they want is a writer that fits their brand and message. Someone that is engaging and has a personality to their writing.
At least, that’s what I found writing for small businesses.
