You can be at peace knowing that there is enough work for everybody – all digital marketing agencies and corporate sites today need to outsource their work.

Here, are the steps you should follow to reach out to the best companies and get content writing assignments:

  1. Research the Companies
  • Do a Google search for the best digital marketing companies
  • Check out the sites for quality of language and clients
  • Read reviews to know how the company treats it freelancers – people not getting paid are sure to talk about it
  1. Contact People Who Can Help
  • Use your LinkedIn profile or any social media group to reach out to people working in the company you are interested in
  • Ask to be introduced to the right person
  • If your contact list cannot be of help, go to the next step
  1. Check Contact Information on the Website
  • Go to the contact page on the website, and send in an email to the mentioned email ID.
  • Try a variation of the site addresses, if you do not want to reach out to a salesperson – Check the address – is it .com, .org, .in, Then use hrd or content@companyname.com. You are sure to get a response
  • There is no harm in reaching out to multiple people on the same email
  1. Reach Out to the Concerned Person
  • A simple Hi will suffice if there is no name.
  • Don’t try and guess the gender of the person
  • In the subject line add – looking for an opportunity as a freelance writer
  • Your email should reflect your language skills – it should be error-free
  1. Share Your Details
  • Share a professional summary like your experience, the niche you are comfortable in, the cost, and the amount of work you can complete in a day.
  • Share personal information such as your phone number, the email ID which can be used to reach you, your working hours, etc.
  • Attach a resume, if you have one
  1. Sharing Samples
  • If possible, attach samples of your work in the original email.
  • Use your best samples, which are error-free and will get instant approval.
  • Send samples of the niches you are most comfortable with
  • It is Ok, not to share samples in the first contact mail, and let the person-in-charge ask for them
  1. Follow Up For Work
  • Remember, the response may take 1–3 working days.
  • If you do not get a response, send a reminder. You can send up to 3 reminders.
  • Reach out to a separate ID, if the response is still not received
  1. Get the Conversation Flowing
  • Despite the sharing of details in the first mail, you may be asked to write a sample.
  • I am of the view, why not? However – if they are using the content, you get paid, if not, you go ahead and use it on your website
  • Ask questions – what kind of work will I get, how much will I get, and what are the payment terms.
  • Don’t be afraid to negotiate on the price. But, this is tricky, because some agencies have a limit on the price they can pay, while others are willing to pay a high-cost, but then their quality standards will be stricter.
  1. Sign A Contract
  • Most companies will ask you to sign a contract and NDA.
  • Read the terms and conditions carefully and take a decision
  • Once the contract is signed you will not be allowed to reach out to clients of the company you are working with for a certain period.
  • Once the contract is signed, you are bound by that decision
  1. Commit to Quality
  • Be ready for rejections and revisions if you are not able to meet their standards of quality. You cannot have a ‘bad day at work’ and expect the work to keep coming
  • Companies want work delivered as per their deadlines. They are more than willing to let good writers go if the content is not delivered as per timelines
  • Clients have expectations from their freelance content writer.

In conclusion, reaching out to a client for a bulk order is the easy part. It is also easy to convince them that let you come on board. The actual difficulty arises, when you are required to start delivering content. Most companies will give you a monthly timeline, along with details of their requirements, Fulfilling the requirements in terms of quality and timelines is what will get you bulk work, repeatedly!
