When thinking of what to write my next article about, I came up with the topic of ‘questions freelance writers should ask their clients.’ It seemed like a great topic, and I started moving forward with my outline. Well, I quickly realized that this was going to be much too long for a single post, so I’m turning it into a series of posts. Some of the posts will likely be pretty short, but hopefully still helpful. These posts are going to be published as I complete the writing for each of the questions.
As of this moment, I don’t know how long the series will be, or how long it will take me to complete it, but I’ll keep the list below updated so you can check back. Of course, the posts will also show up in my recent posts as they are published, and they will be on the all posts page too. I’m writing in all the questions I’ve got planned for now (see below). If the text in the list below isn’t clickable, that likely means I haven’t written the post for that question yet. If you have any suggestions on posts that should be included, please comment below so I can add them to my list.
Questions Series Posts:
- What do you want this project to accomplish?
- What are the Payment Arrangements?
- Is this job part of a larger project?
- What is the deadline?
- Is there any topic or subject you don’t want me to talk about?
- Do you have any keyword requirements?
- Do you have any formatting preference?
- Is there anything else I can do for you?
- Is there anyone you can refer to me?
Hopefully this series will continue to expand as I think of (or you think of) additional questions. Knowing what to ask clients, and why, can help you to keep your clients happy. It can also help to avoid problems and miscommunications, which typically end up causing more work for you.
