Writing too much? Worried about burnout?
The challenge for writers today is that we're competing in a global marketplace. So, when you rely on job websites like the freelance marketplaces to get gigs, the race is to the bottom. The buyers want cheap writers, and the cheapest bid wins.
This means that you write, and write, and write... until you give up in despair.
There's a better way: learn to pitch.
A "pitch" is basically an offer; a proposal to do something for payment.
Top-earning professional writers know how to pitch
Top-paying companies don't advertise for writers. They don't want a generic "writer."
They want writers who can prove not merely that they can write; these writers must prove that they understand a company, and will provide value.
Companies and publications you can pitch are everywhere. Back in the day, if I needed more gigs and wanted to pitch companies, I drove to my local business park on the outskirts of town. I wrote down the names of businesses I might like to pitch, then drove home and wrote pitches.
Among freelance writers, pitches are often known as "queries" or "proposals."
Magazines and websites are used to receiving editorial queries, and publishers are used to receiving book proposals.
Companies are used to receiving proposals too. Often companies put out RFPs (Requests for Proposals) for something or other.
