I want to find more freelance work. I want to increase my income from freelancing.
This is my experiment to find three new freelancing gigs within the next month.
Last week I wrote about why freelancing trumps blogging. This week I’m going to find myself some more work. It’s time to increase my income.
Why increase my freelancing income?
I want to make more money and get better at what I do.
I used to always blindly chase passive income. Now that I’ve setup a few solid streams of passive income (eBooks and real estate) I want to increase my income from freelancing. The more money I make from freelance work, the more money that I have to invest in my other business ventures.
I also want to get better at what I do. When I get paid to do something, I take it very seriously. This is why I want to find more paid work.
What’s my plan to find more freelance work?
I’m going to apply my own advice. I wrote about how you can find a freelance writing gig now.
I’m going to try three different strategies and in a few weeks I plan on sharing with you which strategy worked for me.
- Post an ad on Studenomics. In the next few days I’m going to put an ad up on my main blog, Studenomics, to let everyone know that they can hire me.
- Send emails to friends. I’m going to shoot over emails to see if any of my friends that I’ve met over the years would be interested in help with their blogging or if they know of anything.
- Check out job boards. In my eBook I checked out the importance of using online job boards to find work. I’m going to hit these up to increase my income.
Do you have any advice? How have you found freelance work in the past? I’m open to all suggestions.
