Step 1 — Read. Research.

Step 2 — Showcase your write-ups.

This also doubles up as your portfolio to showcase ‘samples’ of your work to the prospects who approach you for work and as samples or previous work.

Step 3 — Network (like crazy).

Step 4 — Update your Social Media Profiles.

Step 5 — Guest post. Reach out to publishers.

Having a published article with your by-line adds trust and builds your credibility as a writer, and more so, as a freelancer.

Step 6 — Cold-email. Pitch your services.

Step 7 — Persevere.

What works for someone might not work for you. But, what might not work for someone might work wonders for you! So, keep trying.
