The Start and End of a Freelance Writing Project

January 11, 2009| Category: Writing Tips

Before you even accept a new project for freelance writing, you would have to ask the client some questions. First, you have to ask the client when the project begins. Second, you would also have to know when the due date is. If you fail to ask these two very important questions, you will find out that you will not be able to work effectively so much. While most clients address this instantly, there are moments when these aspects are overlooked.

In my work experience, a lot of jobs begin when all the details of the project are done. Put differently, I had no experiences of clients giving me a job and telling me not to start immediately. In fact, they even want me to go ahead and get the job done on time.

Of these two questions, it is more important to know the due date of the project. This is the date that you would have to be concerned with most. You should never agree to a completion date that you think you cannot commit to. Having to get to an impossible deadline will put a lot of pressure on you. The due date will always be flexible. But you have to remember that keeping the client happy is a key target. I always do my best to complete the job on an agreed date that works for a client. When the situation seems a little off, I try to ask for an extension. Fortunately, this is not a big problem.

Each freelance writing project is different. Some jobs will only take a day to finish so a quick turnaround is made. Other jobs are a lot more complex, so the client would have to give you more time to complete it.

Upon finalizing the details of the project, you have to be certain that you talk about the start and the end of the project. This shows the client that you are managing it well. In addition, knowing these dates will allow you to keep your own schedule. Of course, never forget that the happiness of the client is very important.
