So you want to learn to write for clients, which means you need the best books on freelancing! I’ve got a quick list for you here, but before I go further, let me just say:
I am not claiming that a book is the solution to your problems or will make you a copywriter, like, yesterday. But if you have longed to be a writer for years and haven’t gotten there, there are solutions. It might not be in one book, or two, but the answers are out there. (We’ll discuss a few more below.)
The best books on freelancing, in my opinion, first acknowledge how difficult it is not only to be in this profession but to make the jump and then take your work seriously. These books, IMHO, do that boss-style.
So treat them like the boost they’re meant to be, not the panaceas we all hope for when we pick up another book or course. Just a word to the wise.
Now, lest my five-paragraph preamble has effectively dissuaded you from checking out any of these books, let me just say: They’re all super good! These really are the best books on freelancing! So go forth, my little reader, and conquer.
Without further ado:
Before I depart for today, a word to the wise: Even with the very best books on freelancing at your side, you can still set yourself up for failure if you make the mistake of taking any one book as gospel.
I know you know what I’m talking about. You read a book, you get inspired AF, you decide to Become That Amazing Person TODAY, and then you burn out. In, like, three hours when you realize that it’s not going to happen that way.
Don’t do that to yourself. Instead, use these books as guides. Friends, if you will, from the literary world. People who are doing what you want to be doing, who can help you get there. But you still have to make their tips work for you. These books are resources, nothing more, so take them as such.
