How to Apply for Freelance Writing Jobs Quickly

Okay, you’ve seen the places I look for freelance writing jobs and you’ve seen how I weed out the best paying jobs. Now I’m going to show you how I apply for the freelance jobs quickly.
The secret is that I use templates that I customize to each opening. For example, one of my niches is fitness and healthy eating. So, I wrote a cover letter that goes over all of my expertise in this area. When I apply for jobs in this niche, I just tweak the cover letter a bit and copy and paste it into an email. One out of five tries, my templates usually brings me a client.
I bet you want to see one of my templates. Here you go:

It’s as simple as that. I change out writing clips according to what type of articles or blogs the client is looking for. I also have a resume that is customized to the fitness and healthy eating niche to go with the template. This part is very important because you don’t want to send a general resume with a targeted cover letter. They just won’t mesh and your client will be confused. Or bored. Or both.
