Tone

18 Jan

I was recently talking about this with some work friends the other week and I thought it might be a helpful post.  For those of you who are doing your first round of reaching out to possible freelancing opportunities, be hyper aware of your tone, especially in e-mails.  Always sound excited, always sound appreciative, and always sound willing.  If you have these three things down, you’re much likelier to get a response.  It has at least worked in my experience.  It doesn’t hurt to mean it too.  That’s good tone.
