Freelancing sites are not the only place you can find work.
In a previous post, I showed you not one, not two, but 14 different methods for finding freelance work online.
Most of these methods involve contacting the clients directly and sending your pitch via email. I can’t stress it enough how important this first email really is.
This is the email that your potential clients are going to use to analyze you and your skills. A small mistake, such as addressing the client “hey what’s up!” or desperately writing “I really need this job” can cost you a job of a several thousand dollars.
You don’t have to be a master of the English language to write a great email. You just have to learn to follow certain email etiquette when writing the pitch to appear more professional to your clients.
