A FREE REPORT is also available by following the link in the Bio Box. The report goes into all the advantages and disadvantages of freelancing from home.
Provide the best service
While it may sound obvious, but often we fail to provide the best service possible. For example, a very minor careless mistake may ruin an otherwise perfect piece of writing. Proofread the articles you have written for a couple of times carefully. Make sure to abide by the deadline if you have any and try never ever to submit your articles beyond the deadline. Many a contract has been lost because of the lack of careful proofreading.
Create an office-like environment
In case of freelance copywriting you are typically working from your home. This sometimes may make you quite lethargic as the environment in your home must be relaxing and laid-back as opposed to the office atmosphere that is surcharged with competitiveness that keeps you always on your toes. Do everything you can to create an office-like atmosphere at home at least when you are working.
Have a do-not-disturb signboard hanging from the doorknob of the room you are working in. Explain to your kids that you are actually working from home, which is not different than working in an office, and ask for their cooperation. Have a fixed time of working and before you sit down to work, make sure that you will face no distractions in between by completing all household chores that need to be taken care of.
Tell your spouse/partner, friends and family not to disturb you while you are working unless there is an emergency. Take small 5 minutes breaks after every one hour. Discipline yourself to remember that you are working against a deadline just like office works.
Set up a target
Setting a target helps a lot with freelancer copywriter jobs. You can have a target of writing a specific amount of words in a single day. You should consider both your comfort level and the payment structure in order to set up a target. For example, a freelance copywriter job may offer you $1 for every 100 words. Now, you have to see how much you can comfortably write in one day to earn a certain amount of money in a month. Don’t burn yourself out by taking on a lot of work that you cannot handle. It certainly is not productive to do this and it is far preferable to take a more measured approach.
Network with other writers
When you are doing online writing, networking with other freelance copywriters really helps. Join online forums, discussion groups, social networking platforms where you can interact with other writers such as you. If you have a work overload, you may give it away to another writer whom you know and vice versa. Remember, co-operation makes more sense in the world of freelance copywriter jobs.
