Working as a freelance writer for Textbroker can provide you with many opportunities to develop lasting relationships with clients. However, if you deliver high-quality work, this can quickly lead to situations where orders stack up, and you are left juggling different freelance projects from multiple sources.
When you receive an order from a client on the Textbroker platform – or view an Open Order from the main order pool – a client brief should be expected. This provides details about what the text should be about, what information should be included, who the target audience is, where the text will be published, and what it is intended to achieve.
In this post, we take a look at some of the main steps you need to go through as a freelance writer, in order to assess a client brief properly and get the information you need before you can start work on a writing project.
As a writer, taking on a new regular client can be a great way to ensure a steady stream of work comes in over the long term. Or you might be considering taking on a more in-depth project with a higher rate of pay than you usually receive but on a short-term basis. Either way, before actually taking on a new client and agreeing to work with them on an assignment, there are certain details you need to know.
This post outlines five of the most important questions you should ask when taking on a new client so that you can understand the nature of the work, meet their deadlines, and ensure the content you create lives up to their expectations.
As a freelance author, you always need to plan your schedule carefully, but this is especially true when it comes to holidays. After all, if you do not work, you do not earn money, and if you are not available to respond to requests from clients and you do not take the appropriate steps, they may start to look elsewhere instead.
In this post, we explore some of the key steps you need to take to plan for a holiday as a freelance author, in order to minimise disruption, limit any damage to your earnings, and keep clients informed about your availability.
The best freelance authors are always eager to improve their writing, and regardless of whether you are an experienced content creator or new to the Textbroker platform, there are likely to be ways you could enhance the quality of your written work or the speed at which you are able to produce high-quality content.
