5. Set up Your Website
This advice is for freelancers who are at an intermediate level, where you have done some good writing work. If you are at that level, a great way to attract high-paying clients is to set up your website. You can comfortably display all your writing gigs on the website. You can list your blog, social media, paid work, ads, etc. all on your website.
6. Write Guest Posts For Free
That's right! Sometimes to get good quality work, you need to tell people you are worthy of it. To establish yourself as a good writer, you can write blogs, posts, articles for popular websites for free. This way clients will see your name on popular websites and would be willing to work with you.
