    Useful tips and guidelines to freelance writing

    Freelancing is a battleground where the entrepreneur will sleep with eye open. You will be asked to work of different fields apart from your choices. You will not be able to consult with anybody in the freelancing world. There are some tips for writing air tight freelance contracts. It is very much important to know the information before you start to write and the writing would be so easy.

    Why write contracts?

    Many fresh freelance writes often have a question of why writing contracts in their minds. Contracts are used to bind people to be honest and sincere with their promised obligations. Keeping business formal will also ensure you walk out with a pay day at the end of each work cycle. This also gives everyone an equal share in any kind of dispute that is happening.

    Project Standards

    This is considered as some of the basic of contracts. You should start off with expelling the entity and then you should tell who is gonna do what and who will receive and when is the completion time, who will receive the completed one, who will check the project, what is the role of each entity. It also provides an overview of the type of work that is done, like graphics photo editing. These should tell the clients the role and also you should know where to end.

    Timelines and meet-ups

    Foe a corporate client a timeline would make things smother. Clients will enjoy a small completion dates. You could also add dates where the two parties will meet up and will discuss about the progress made. Clients don't assume they can bother you any time a day for a status update. You can have a once a week meet up to go over the changes. It is very much important not to do the scheduling. Allow of buffers where you can take a break to build your thought process.


    Final Product delivery


    The final production environment is very much important. Writing the contracts is not only important but you should have a verbal response from both the parties. This will save you from writing detailed explanation of an destructive projects. You should also include the no. of files and its types to the client. You could also zip archive the files and transfer it. If the project is still open and it can involve any no. of files mark down whatever information you can.

    Exchange final estimates

    You should tell the clients that you know business while writing the payment for the freelance contract. You should also try to mention the time required to do the job and also it spay that will make the job worth. The payment for the freelance may be tricky as there is no set rate and rate depends on the type of work. The flat fee will have some assurance to the clients as the amount paid after a project is same as discussed even if you worked for more hours.

    Follow-up revision

    Adding an additional clause to your project contract to forbid this behaviour is essential to protect yourself from this client.

    Nice tutorial . You present clear cut idea behind content writing. We need to pay more attention and require lot of research according to the project. If some one have domain knowledge in their field then content writing for them gets more easier because they have lot of idea and knowledge in that field.
