Sharing is Caring!
By William Ballard
You know what really saddens me?
Every day I hear another story of how a freelance writer failed; or how he or she went under and filed for bankruptcy pursuing their passion. These writers have good intentions, but they lack focus on one critical area: SALES.
You almost wouldn’t believe this, but I am baffled by the number of freelance writers that I encounter daily who have never had sales training, and quite sadly, have no intention of developing skills in this area.
I want this point to really sink in…
The definition of a writing business is to sale a service for a profit.
Listen to me carefully when I say this: Sales and Profits are essential to the success and longevity of your writing business.
If you want to double your income more in the next 3 months than you did in the past 3 years, there are 2 things you need to start doing today that will… brace yourself… guarantee your success:
Believe me when I tell you this: If you do these two things every day, you will be able to succeed more in your writing business beyond your wildest dreams.
I know… I know…
You thought this whole writing business thing was just about writing.
I am sorry to burst your bubble, but you can’t neglect the “business” side of your writing business. And, believe it or not, SALES is essential to the success of any business, and that includes a writing business. In fact, I am going to be to writing more and more about business side of writing in the near future, so you will definitely want to TUNE IN.
You can be stubborn and pride yourself in being the writer that never sells (which is an impossibility), or you can DECIDE to take control of your writing career, success, and income starting today. It’s really all up to you.
