Create (and Maintain!) Personal Connections
Whether it's with your editors, PR agencies, or other freelancers, make friends! It can be hard to develop personal connections with people when both sides are communicating from behind a computer screen, so put in some extra effort to get to know the people you're crossing e-paths with. The more people in the freelance world like you and like your work, the more jobs and assignments you’re likely to get in the future.
