A Word From The Word

I am sending you a master craftsman named Huram-abi, who is extremely talented … he can follow any design given to him. (2 Chronicles 2:13-14, NLT)

A Word For Writers

“How do I get more freelance copywriting jobs?” It’s a question that freelance writers ask often. 

One answer is by referrals. Referrals come from producing quality work for another client. 

The Referral: a devotional about getting more freelance copywriting jobs based on 2 Chron 2:13-14 with Word Wise at Nonprofit Copywriter #ChristianWritingResources #FreelanceWriting

Take Solomon, for instance. When building the temple for the Lord, he had access to plenty of laborers (70,000), quarry workers (80,000), and foremen (3,600). But Solomon needed a skilled artisan to assemble special pieces of furniture and create detailed designs for precious metal, stone, wood, and fabrics.

So Solomon did what so many savvy business leaders do: he sought a referral. Solomon contacted his ally, King Hiram of Tyre, who recommended Huram-abi.

Huram-abi had skills. He could work in whatever media was presented to him to produce a beautiful decorative design. And he had a reputation of working well on a team.

That his king would recommend him to another leader and allow the artisan to leave the country to work on a years-long project speaks highly of Huram-abi’s abilities. 

Huram-abi had consistently produced quality work and proven himself to be a master craftsman. Now, as a gesture of goodwill to an ally, King Hiram was willing to refer this artisan to another leader.

The same is true with word-smithing. When a leader hires a writer who consistently produces quality content, people notice. Do that and you’ll receive plenty of referrals for more freelance copywriting jobs.

A Wise Word

Produce quality content consistently and you’ll receive referrals.

A Word To Pray

Heavenly Father,

Thank you that You have equipped me with skills. Help me to produce quality content consistently. Let my work honor You and find favor among those who need written content leading to referrals. 

In Jesus’s name, Amen.
