How to avoid new freelance writing common mistakes

Check out Yuwanda Black books 

Yuwanda Black will be sharing some freelance writing advice today!
I've been a freelance writer since 1993 and I've made so many mistakes I could literally write a book about them. Some mistakes can't be helped, but there are definitely those you don't have to make in order to learn the lesson.
Freelance Writers: Are You Making Any of These Mistakes?
Following are four of the most common mistakes I see many new (and a good number of experienced) freelance writers making.
I. Not Creating a Marketing Schedule: I've said this one gazillion and one times, but it bears repeating - marketing is the lifeblood of any business. And when you fail to do it - consistently - you put yourself in danger of living a feast-or-famine existence as a freelance writer.
Don't do this. You deserve better.
Just because you freelance does not mean that you have to have such an unstable income. Sure, it'll never be as consistent as having a 9-to-5 job, but when you fail to create - and stick to - a consistent marketing schedule, you exponentially increase your chances of not succeeding as a freelancer.
So make this a "must do" when you start your freelance writing business. Create a marketing schedule - preferably reaching out to a certain number of contacts every day. And, do it first thing in the morning.
This way, you'll get it out of the way - and you'll develop the habit of constantly keeping writing jobs and prospects in your pipeline. THIS is the way to practically guarantee that you'll stay busy as a freelancer.
II. Failing to Say No: This means not only to clients who want to low-ball you, but to friends, family, organizations that want you to volunteer and anyone else who takes for granted that just because you freelance, you're always "available."
As a freelance writer, I get up and "report to the office" every day - just like when I worked in corporate America. The only thing that's changed has been my uniform. Now I work in my bunny slippers and may not comb my hair until late afternoon (if at all).
To succeed as a freelancer, you must treat your career like a business -- and that means respecting your time. Sure you can set your own schedule and it can be re-arranged at will. But, trust me, you'll dramatically increase your chances of success if you stick to some kind of routine.
III. Undercharging: There is no one right or wrong freelance writing rate. In fact, they're all over the place; but I can tell you this, $3 for 500 words is definitely undercharging.
I tell all freelance writers to charge what you need to make a living, and the best way to figure this out is to get really intimate with your numbers (ie, your expenses). This includes self-employment taxes, which can be anywhere from 10 to 35 percent (or more) of your freelance income.
Learn more about freelance finances and taxes.
IV. Failing to Consistently Raise Rates: Many freelancers set their rates when they first start out, then may not revisit them for a few years - or longer.
Don't!
Like any business, your costs go up too, eg, your electric bill, cell phone charges, office supplies, etc. So just like when you were an employee, don't forget to give yourself "a raise" by increasing your rates regularly.
I raise rates at my SEO writing company every 18 months or so. In my experience, around the first of the year is a good time to do so, as well as during the summer, when things tend to be a bit slower.

You are going to make mistakes in your freelance writing career; we all do. But, the ones listed here don't have to be among them.

Yuwanda Black heads New Media Words, an SEO writing company she founded in 2008, and is the publisher of Inkwell Editorial, a blog devoted to helping others start successful, home-based writing careers. She's also the author of over 50 ebooks, most of which cover some aspect of freelance writing. They can be found on major outlets like Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

We are seeking a writer to provide quality weekly blog posts on topics covering SEO, SEM, Business Blogging, Ecommerce, Content Marketing, and the Psychology of Buying & Marketing. 

Posts should be long enough to be actually informative, and while we don't subscribe to strict word counts we typically find decent articles to be 600 - 1,500 words. 

You will have broad editorial license to pick your own topics, and we encourage writing in themed series. We will give you access to our stock photo account to select an appropriate image for each post. 

We are looking for an experienced writer/blogger who has past experience in jewelry, fashion, or weddings. You should have the ability to do some research, write with the target audience in mind and have some basic knowledge of SEO. We have a variety of topics in mind but would also be open to hearing new ideas from the writer.

We're looking for freelance journalists to cover the digital advertising, marketing, and tech space. These articles will be featured on our website and will also be promoted through syndication. 

We are seeking writers with a passion for marketing and technology with noteworthy publication histories and/or large audiences in social media or otherwise. Applicants will be screened on a rolling basis and should be enthusiastic about tech, marketing and advertising. 
We are a wholesale gift and home accessories company, established in San Francisco in 1951. We are best known for our handmade art glass paperweights, figurines and vases. Our customers range from gift and home decor retailers to zoo/aquarium/theme park/museum gift shops to art galleries. We are looking for a freelance copywriter for marketing materials: press kits; product copy; editorials for gift and home decor trade publications.

We work in techniques such as 2D character animation, whiteboard, and motion graphics. We're based in midtown Manhattan.

We seek to hire a writer on a freelance/contract basis to develop audio-visual scripts for animated videos, usually running at 1-3 minutes. Applicants should be able to condense complicated business subjects into effective and memorable narratives. Great client presence is a major plus. NYC-area residency is preferred, but not required. 

SmartBrief is seeking a part-time editor to help create daily online business and consumer news e-mail publications in the health industry. Applicant must be available for daily deadlines.  Applicant must have two to five years of experience writing or editing health news. If you love to edit material and shape content, and thrive in a fast-paced, deadline-intensive work environment, you'll fit right in. This position includes both writing and editing duties, with a heavy focus on editing. Other job duties include client relationship management. This is a telecommute position.

We are looking for a seasoned freelancer with experience in creating great web copy for a broad variety of clients. Content needs to be well written, engaging and informative. The vast majority of content will be written in a B2B or B2C context, so familiarity with writing in these styles is a must. Because of the varied nature of the topics, the right candidate will need to be able to conduct research in order to write knowledgeably and accurately.

There is a lot of work available, and we're looking for a freelancer who is comfortable with committing to delivering a consistent amount of work on a weekly basis. Typical assignments include blog entries, press releases, website content, product descriptions and articles for publication on external sites.


This assignment requires an intermediate to advanced understanding of IT services such as "Virtual Private Networking" and "WAN Load Balancing" AND/OR an intermediate to advanced understanding of professional (business) services such as "Due Diligence Investigations" and "Fraud Advisory & Response Consulting"

We are currently building a new website for a company which is the result of several mergers and acquisitions. This site will have all the standard information such as "about us," "contact info," "locations," .etc.

It will also have a comprehensive list of the services we provide, organized and nested in a way that makes sense. Here's an example of a tax firm that organizes their services well: 

The exact structure and organization of the outline isn't that important. What's important is that the outline is essentially a list of SEO keywords. Further, each bullet point goes to a page about the topic which is again inherently an SEO goldmine. (That's why wikipedia always comes up first in results, it's an outline full of keywords.)
