How do I land my first editing client

Featured editor: Dayna Reidenouer, True Love Editorial Services

Dayna has moved into editing work from a strong background in proofreading and writing. But she’s feeling daunted about landing her first freelance editing clients. Without a portfolio and testimonials, she feels like it’s an uphill battle trying to convince potential clients to work with her rather than a more accomplished editor.

So of course we’re talking about confidence. New freelance editors forget all the other proven skills they bring to the role!

But I also believe the task of finding the people who need your editing help gets much more achievable when you focus on a niche. You’ll be able to target ideal clients more easily with your marketing and show up where they are online.

There are plenty of ways to get your message out there, even if you don’t have a website yet. In my experience, marketing gets easier with practice.


If you’re feeling stuck in your business right now, why not consider booking in a discovery call with me to see if coaching is right for you.
