In addition to everything we do at Nonprofit Marketing Guide directly for nonprofits, I also have a small side project that helps freelance writers and consultants do a better job serving their own nonprofit clients. It’s called Freelance Writing for Nonprofits.
I’ve re-opened registration for another session of the “Freelance Writing for Nonprofits” coaching program created especially for freelance writers and consultants who want to write for paying nonprofit clients. This is not for nonprofit staff — we’ll do a writing e-clinic for you in January.
During the last two sessions earlier this year, I shared everything I knew about building a successful freelance business serving nonprofits, and I’ll be doing the same again this time. I’ve asked four other successful freelancers to share their experiences working for nonprofits too. Between the five of us, there isn’t a challenge we haven’t faced in freelancing for nonprofits.
Here are some of the topics we’ll cover during the three-week program:
- What nonprofits expect from the freelancers they hire
- The various types of online and offline communications that nonprofits need and that freelancers can produce for them
- Tips on writing nonprofit newsletters, annual reports, and fundraising appeals — in print and online
- How giving away something for free leads to paid gigs (and when it doesn’t)
- Creative ways to promote your business — what works and what doesn’t
- What belongs on every freelance writer’s website
- Using social media to get more nonprofit clients
The new session begins Monday, November 29 and we have 15 spaces available.
