Here's how to make you stand out in the freelance writing crowd. After you have scoured the internet for freelance jobs, you have narrowed it down and are ready to apply. So are hundreds of others. Here are some tips from Amber McNaught at WritingWorld.com on how to do just that:

  • Read the ad carefully – suprisingly, most people don't read the requirements and having someone apply properly is rare.
  • Spell check – obvious, people…
  • Get personal – get the editors name and spell it correctly.
  • Show your self – if you don't have published clips at least send something you've written really well.
  • Don't be fancy – let your words alone do the talking.
  • Show references – testimonials from clients you've worked with before.
