1. Make a List of Clients You Haven’t Contacted in Six Months… and Contact Them
How quickly they forget! Once you’ve completed a writing project, your clients move on. Stay in touch with them to remind them that you exist, or they’ll hire other writers because they’ve forgotten you.
2. Create an Introductory Package

3. Boost Your Blurb(s)
The ability to write blurbs (short descriptions) is a master-skill. You should write a blurb for each of your writing services, and your products such as ebooks too.
4. Write an Article to Promote Your Writing Services
Writers who get hired and who have waiting lists of clients WRITE. They use their writing as self-promotion. So write an article today.
5. Outline an Ebook for Ongoing Income
All money-making writers create their own products, and keep creating them. An ebook brings you ongoing income for years. Outline your first or next ebook today.
6. Contact a Client a Day (No Clients? Contact 25 Prospects a Day)
