Getting A Freelance Speech Writing Job: Basic Instructions


Put together any speeches you’ve written for yourself or other people to create a portfolio

If you’re thinking about becoming a freelance writer who creates speeches for a living then it is important that you have the necessary skills to do the work properly. Ideally, you will have written speeches in the past and, therefore, you will have examples that you can use to create a portfolio. Whether these were speeches that you created for yourself, or they were written for other people, as long as they are good enough, then they will give potential clients a feel for how talented you are.

Decide whether or not you want to specialise in certain speeches, and what niche that might be

There are many different types of speeches that you could write. For example, it may be that you want to write wedding speeches or you may wish to create speeches for after-dinner speakers. In fact, there are many occasions where speech writers are required, and by picking a niche, you can help to increase the likelihood that you will be chosen to do the work, when speeches in that niche are required.

Work out how much you want to earn and, therefore, how much you will have to charge

When you first starting out as a freelance writer, it can be very difficult to evaluate how much you should charge for your work. One of the problems is that many new writers do not take into consideration the time that they are not working. If, as a writer, you are able to get enough work to do full-time hours then this isn’t a problem; however, there will most likely be times when the work is a little bit slow. As a result, you need to set your rates accordingly.

Finding speech writing jobs on freelance websites

Once you know what you want to do and how much you should charge, you can start looking on freelance websites which provide listings of jobs in the writing sector. This is a particularly useful place to look for speech writing jobs as normally people require speeches for one-off occasions - and therefore won’t necessarily be looking to take someone on full-time.

Contacting private clients about working for them

You could look for private clients; however, as mentioned, few people require speech writing on a regular basis. However, if you can find clients that do have to give speeches a few times a year, then, as long as you build up a bigger client list, sourcing clients privately is potentially achievable, although it will require a lot of hard work and determination.
