About Freelance Writing Pros
Advanced Marketing & Business Tips for Experienced Freelance Writers
The Freelance Writing Pros Mission
Freelance Writing Pros is different from most freelance writing websites, including its sister site All Freelance Writing. Rather than focusing on newer freelancers looking to launch and grow a new writing business, or trying to be everything to everyone, this site caters to experienced professionals looking for something more.
This site aims to serve freelance writers who have already shown they can manage a basic sustainable business. They don’t need advice on landing their first client. They don’t need to learn how to write a query letter. They’ve already mastered the basics. But they’re ready for a change, or they want to take things to the next level, whether that’s earning more while working less or improving their professional platform.
If you’re looking for more technical knowledge (from advanced SEO tactics to building a more effective professional website), or if you’re interested in improving your overall business practices (such as running more effective marketing and PR campaigns), Freelance Writing Pros is here to help.
Who is Freelance Writing Pros For?
This site is for you if you want to:
Move Into Higher-Paying Markets
You’re considering targeting higher-paying clients, but you’re concerned about the risks of leaving current clients behind.
Transition Into a New Specialty
You’re looking to leave a saturated freelance writing specialty behind, tweak your target market, or add a new specialty to the services you already offer.
Improve Marketing & PR Skills
You want to improve your marketing plan, run a PR campaign, or try your hand at new and creative approaches to promoting your freelance writing business.
Increase Billable Hours
You’re happy with your freelance writing rates, but you wish you could spend less time on marketing and admin work and have more billable hours for client projects.
Build an Expert Reputation
You want to expand your professional visibility, build media relationships, and become more recognized as a subject matter expert or authority within your specialty.
Expand Your Revenue Sources
While you love working for clients, you’d like to learn how to incorporate additional revenue sources to make your income even more stable and less reliant on available hours.
