The freelance warrior supports environmental charities, because the environment is where all the gig-getting happens! No environment, no gigs!
The donation to charity is also a demonstration for you to follow. Customers need to be able to feel good about their purchase decisions. Getting gigs is not just about having qualifications. Set up a situation where the client will feel proud of the decision to choose you for the gig.
Not long ago, the idea to be a professional writer was a far-fetched, childish aspiration -- like being an astronaut or a rockstar. But the Internet has changed everything. If you are the kind of person who loves the idea of getting paid to write, you need to know this new landscape.
Crossing language barriers: While giving clients more access to freelancers, the Internet also causes a planet-wide change called ‘globalization’ which mixes all the cultures together and creates a situation where a lot of people need help to express themselves effectively in English.
Content marketing: Even if someone is already a great communicator, she still needs to hire you. In general, hiring great writers gives people a competitive advantage, so their competitors also hire writers in order to keep up. The nature of Internet marketing is that ‘content is king’, and that means anyone who wants to promote anything online needs to generate a steady stream of text content. They need help from excellent writers who will regularly publish fresh, original text content online.
Celebrity/corporate gigs: You can get good gigs when you have strong “web presence”. Start doing some freelance gigs and blogging to promote your brand, and it will only take a few months to build a strong web presence. When it’s possible for someone to search Google for your brand and see a whole page full of interesting search results, you’re ready to start reaching out and soliciting some celebrities and big, corporate clients.
Dissertation/thesis help: Academic writing is in huge demand, and you should probably look into it. Higher education is like a giant, money-making machine. There is so much money going into it, people can afford to pay a little extra and get help from a great writer. Some writers have ethical hangups about helping people write their papers, and that’s good, because it leaves more of these awesome academic writing gigs for the rest of us.
Everything else: Almost everyone I know could benefit by hiring a writer. One person in particular really needs to hire an assistant to help manage accounts for his work as a project manager. Another is a nurse trying to complete her doctoral degree. They are struggling, and they would like to hire a writer, but they will not do it until they experience a moment of legitimacy when YOU point out how much you can help them.
For people who care about anything, life is a scary challenge. The freelance warrior is someone who chooses to run right at it.
