I am a freelance ghostwriter. Lately, I’ve been putting in a bit of effort to test my ability as a novelist. For the most part, I complete writing assignments for clients ranging from animals to travel. However, it’s not like I started out as some prodigy. It took a great deal of time and effort to build myself up to the success I am now. So, how did I start my writing career?
There is the right way and the wrong way to win over clients as a freelance ghostwriter. I have seen many potential word-smiths fail simply because they are unable to provide what a paying customer wants. In reality, it’s not all that difficult to provide a superior service. How you walk onto the battlefield will dictate whether or not you will win the day.
What happens when a client requests controversial content? That is completely up to the writer. Over the years, I’ve had a menagerie of requests for writing content that were either contrary to my beliefs or outright negative to some degree. While some may be apt to write the piece and get paid, others like myself try to stand for what they believe in. What can you do when clients ask for something you’re not comfortable with?
Freelance work is becoming more common thanks to the advancements of the Internet. Nearly anyone can find work depending on their interests in this digital age. However, not all opportunities are legitimate. While there are a lot of ads out there for job in writing, you need to be careful not to become a victim of a scam. Here are a few ways to protect yourself.
Most freelance professionals need to keep an extra close eye on finances. It can be easy to forget that you need to pay taxes once per year, especially since most clients only offer 1099s and don’t file employee taxes on you. Using Stash Invest might have some potential for managing those expenses.
