Last week, I explained how starting my copywriting business was similar to planting a veggie garden.
Even after the planting is complete, there is more work to be done. You can’t sit back and wait for the harvest. Vegetable gardening doesn’t work that way.
Neither does growing a profitable freelance writing business. In order for your business to thrive and produce, you must tend to it.
Often, the work necessary to produce remarkable results involves as much “sweat equity” as the first three steps we talked about last week. A freelance business doesn’t run on autopilot. You must continually work on it.
So, I’m going to share the freelance business tips I used to grow my copywriting “garden” from a $2,000 per year start into a bona fide business. One with an income potential that could very well match my wages from my full-time job this year.
The ongoing work involves three additional steps. So get out your hoes and watering can. It’s time to get busy.
