So, you’ve sent countless freelance writing pitches and you’ve heard nothing back.
I hear ya! Some of my first pitches were awful and I made many freelance writing pitch mistakes. One thing I’ve worked on since starting my writing career is my pitch. Pitching is what stands between you and a consistent writing income. The better my pitch became, the more gigs (and better paid work) I landed.
Writing a pitch isn’t that difficult when you know exactly what you need to do. Even if you’re a new writer, you can create a solid pitch that will help you win work.
If you want to be making a consistent income freelance writing then you need to become a pro in creating a freelance writing pitch.
Many freelance writers quit because they’re not hearing back from their pitches – I’ll let you into a secret. You need to be sending a lot of freelance pitches when you first start. Finding your first couple of freelance clients can be a struggle, but knowing how to write a pitch will help you to land those lucrative gigs.
One of the main questions I get asked is about freelance writing rates and what to charge as a freelance writer.
If you’ve searched this question online you’re probably thinking that the answer is as scarce as a mythical creature.
The truth is that there is no set template on freelance writing rates – which makes it both exciting and frustrating.
