Article Writing Project – 4 Steps to Get the Ones You Want

James Krawder is an internet marketing coach who aims to make money through affiliate marketing by promoting a coaching program.


As a freelance article writer, I am pretty sure that at some point, you found it quite difficult to win the article writing projects that you really want to work on. In this article, I wish to help you make sure that it will not happen again. Here is what you need to do:

1. Read the brief carefully. Most people who are trying to win article writing projects on freelancing sites do not really take the time to read the entire brief carefully. Well, this will not help you capture the attention of your potential buyers. These people need to have an assurance that you really understand what they are asking for. So, give them proof that you read the project details.

Let me give you an example; instead of saying (I can do this project for you), you can say something like this (I have strong background in advertising and I can definitely write articles about promoting products and services using different advertising tools. I can deliver the 10 articles in 3 to 5 days and I can optimize them for you.)

2. Bid accordingly. You do not want to make your potential clients feel that you are overcharging them. So, bid based on the specs of the project. Right now, potential buyers are expecting to pay $3 to $7500 word article depending on the topic and required research.

However, if you are just new in this endeavor and if you are going up against a lot of freelance article writers who have already proven track record, consider charging less at least for the mean time. You can start raising your fee once you have build credibility in the online arena.

3. Give your prospects plenty of reasons to trust you. Your potential buyers have only one question in mind when reviewing the bids that they received and that would be (why would I award my article writing project to this freelancer?) Influence the purchasing decision of your prospects by properly selling yourself.

If you have written similar articles before, make sure to tell them that. It will also help if you send them sample articles (preferably those that are related to the chosen subjects of the client) so they will have an idea about your skill level.

Do not forget to offer something different compare to your competitors. For example, you can offer your prospects with discounts or offer them with unlimited revisions. Giving them something like these will surely help in capturing their attention.

4. Answer to email inquiries ASAP. Your potential buyers will surely appreciate it if you can provide answers to their inquiries promptly. So, be on standby. Check your email every hour. Then, be careful when writing your response. Write simply and get straight to the point.

Ensure that your reply is well written, well thought out, and simply impressive. You do not want to give your prospects any reason to look the other way. Do not forget to communicate your excitement in doing business with them. This will surely make a lot of difference.
