3. Pitch! Pitch early, and often.
The most common kind of pitch is the simplest. It can be just a sentence: “Would you be interested in an article/ book on ___________ ? (whatever)”.
You send this simple pitch to anyone with whom you have a relationship. I try very hard never, ever to send a client an invoice without pitching something else to them. It’s always just a sentence or two.
I promise you that if you get into the habit of doing this, you’ll soon have more writing jobs than you can handle… Here’s why. MOST WRITERS DON’T DO IT.
Big, big tip: if you remember nothing else from this article, please remember this – pitch. In other words… ASK.
