Nonetheless, here’s how to do it:
- Dig out your yellow pages – if you’re recycled them, go to the library and find one.
- Page through to a business classification you know a bit about.
- Start cold calling.
Okay, you’ll also need a script.
Chris Bibey over at AllFreelanceWriting has some great cold calling tips.
Yes, I know cold calling isn’t your favorite thing to do – mine either, but it works.
Try making 5 cold calls a day, 5 days a week for two weeks. My hunch is you’ll get at least writing assignment.
Let us know how it works for you.
Write well and often,
