October 17, 2017 by Ed Becker

Being your own boss, setting your own hours and pay scale, and possibly working from home are but some of the positives of being a freelancer.  As attractive as all the benefits may seem, according to the 2017 State of Free Lance Writing survey the number one concern for freelancers was “finding enough work”.

Intuit QuickBooks shares 6 ways to improve your chances of finding more work.  Here are a few suggestions:

  • Focus on a niche – utilize your expertise and put it to work for you.  For example, if you’ve worked in the geriatric field, highlight your experience and familiarity with the vernacular to entice potential clients.
  • Take advantage of  freelance market places – although some of these market places may be geared towards the lowest bidder, they can produce some steady income for you.  Check out Upwork, Contently, and LinkedIn ProFinder.
  • Create and send videos – be creative and embed a video in your cover letter.  Find an authentic way to present yourself professionally to a potential long term client.
