Successful Tips For A Freelance Writer: 5 Secrets For Writing An Outstanding Cover Letter


A cover letter is not very essential part of your resume but it indeed makes your resume look professional. Even though more than half of the employers ignore this part but you need to give your best in order to make it appear that you really are eager to get this project. As a freelance writer, you will not be applying to full time jobs rather you will need contracts and opportunities that offer handsome package. You need to remember that you are not the only freelancer applying for this opportunity and many other will be bidding on this job or project. You should be able to make your proposal stand out and allow some insight to the contractor so that they select you for the job.

Most of the times, even when people are skilled enough to carry out a certain job successfully they do not win it because they are not great at composing proposal and offering real value to the contractors. You should be able to compose your cover letter in a way that it is easy to read, memorable, catchy, offers value to the contractor and saves their time. Here are five tips you need to keep in mind when you write your cover letter for any job

  • Be precise
  • You do not have to write lengthy and boring details that do not matter. Most of the letters will start from how they saw the job and why they are writing. Forget that. The contractor already knows why he is receiving your proposal. You need to be very precise and write to the point, as this should be short and relevant

  • Use formatting
  • It is a good idea to make use of bullets and numberings to write down your skills, achievements or yet about anything to save time and space. You should highlight or bold the important places in your document so that the reader can easily skim through it

  • Tell them what you can offer
  • Do not waste your time in irrelevant details about how many clients have you already worked with and how you switched. You need to tell them what exactly you can do for them that others may not be able to do.

  • Build curiosity to make them read your proposal
  • It is very important to give them something to build on so that they are keen to read the rest of your proposal

  • Show interest and research
