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.
The recent COVID-19 pandemic has indeed taken the world by storm. Countless lives have been turned upside down and the notion of “business as usual” has certainly changed as a result. The good news is that most countries now seem to be emerging from such unprecedented doldrums. Many freelancers have likewise counted themselves lucky during the past 12 months in regards to the sheer number of work opportunities. Content writers often fall into this category, as the digital community has gained momentum due to a massive exodus from the world of traditional marketing tactics.
Imagine for a moment that you have been searching online for ways to lose weight. You encounter two articles; both offering the same amount of information. One was written by an anonymous source while the other contains an author biography that lists previous experience and industry knowledge. Which piece of content would you deem to be more trustworthy?
Similar to an all-you-can-eat buffet, more is not necessarily better in terms of content creation. One of the most pervasive myths is that a successful marketing campaign is all about volume; that generating swathes of text will automatically lead to success within the digital domain. In fact, nothing could be further from the truth. Mediocre, incorrectly targeted and otherwise generic material will inevitably fall through the cracks of even the most well-intentioned marketing strategies. Furthermore, a great deal of time can be wasted only to experience disappointing results.
