The competition among freelancers who copywrite is ferocious. You won’t win every project. Get ready for a steady flow of rejections. When potential clients passed me over for projects, I took it personally. Next, I tried to figure out why I lost the projects. Were my rates too high? Was I slow in responding? Was I inexperienced? Was it my proposal? Later, I figured it out. It doesn’t matter why you lose a job. There are plenty of fish in the sea—keep casting. Clients want to work with people with positive attitudes. Stay positive. Stay upbeat.
