If you have been wondering about the best way to start your own freelancing business and what are the necessary steps you must take if you want to be successful, this article and my story can be essential in making the best decision.
Building a successful freelancing business is not easy even though many glorified Internet marketing gurus make it seem so. Becoming a successful writer, designer or a marketer takes a lot of courage, discipline, determination and a ready attitude to adopt new skills every day.
My Short Story as An Introduction
I started my journey a few years back when I saw an article from a guy who claimed he was making money hand over fist by spinning articles using his special software. In fact, he was only making money by selling that software to the losers such as me. I believed I could replicate his success and do the same thing and earn big money overnight.
Unfortunately, as soon as I bought the software and spun my first article, I came to a realization that I have been tricked and left without a viable business idea. The content this software was producing was poor and barely readable. Unlike many other people who have bought the software, realized the mistake and just gave up, I have decided to pursue an actual career of a professional article writer.
It took me a long time to become good at writing because I thought that writing is a different skill to any other, being something you either can or can’t do, and if you can’t- there is absolutely nothing you can do.
Writing is a skill that can be crafted- putting in an enormous amount of hours made me a good candidate for any person running a small business online.
After 3 years and 56 days, I finally managed to pull out a 6-figure salary. I started by making several dollars per 1,000-word article to making several hundred dollars with the same-size content.
In this article I will share some of the most useful advises regarding starting your own freelance writing business. Many of these tips can be applied to running any other type of freelance businesses, though it is tailored to those willing to make a six-figure salary by writing articles and other online content.
