Reach out and build relationships

Rather than passively looking for gigs, reach out to prospects you want to work with:

  • Search on Google the keyword “(Your niche) brands)” or “(Your niche) companies)” to find a list of companies within your writing niche.
  • Head to each website and write a few things you like about the company, like a webpage or blog post you enjoyed — What makes their content unique? Why do you enjoy reading it?
  • You might want to check out their social media as well. Give them a follow and interact with their posts — the goal is to get in front of their radar.

Join writing communities

Freelance writing communities are the spot for: 

  • Asking for feedback 
  • Sharing gigs you can’t take on 
  • Holding each other accountable.

The easiest way to connect with writers is via Facebook groups. You can also join indie hackers, a platform for creators, and join their "freelancing" group. When you join a group, go to make friends rather than finding clients.

Step up your social media game

Social media is an optimal tool when you use it correctly. To avoid “social media burnout,” create and schedule your posts ahead of time. 

Don’t be afraid to show off your personality! Your authenticity is the best way to stand out. If you’re a writer, you’ll attract your ideal clients by being yourself.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
