How to Apply for Freelance Writing Jobs Quickly
Okay, you've seen the places I look for freelance writing jobs and you've seen how I weed out the best paying jobs. Now I'm going to show you how I apply for the freelance jobs quickly. The secret is that I use templates I customize for each gig.
For example, one of my niches used to be fitness and healthy eating. So, I wrote a cover letter that goes over all of my expertise in this area. When I applied for jobs in this niche, I just tweaked the cover letter a bit and copy and paste it into an email. I'd change out writing clips, too, according to what type of articles or blogs the client is looking for. One out of five tries, my templates usually brought in a client. I bet you want to see one of my templates. Here's one of my old ones that got me a lot of gigs:
It's as simple as that. I also had a resume that is customized to the fitness and healthy eating niche to go with the template. This part is very important because you don't want to send a general resume with a targeted cover letter. They just won't mesh and your client will be confused. Or bored. Or both.
