· Poor employee morale: More than salaries, benefits and working conditions, employees in numerous companies today complain that communication (or, rather, lack thereof) is number one "p-word" they face. And when employees are disgruntled, their productivity drops and quality of their work diminishes. Can you step in as a consultant and help organizations analyze and correct that situation? Can you produce company employee newsletters? Then use your writing skills to help companies solve their employee morale "p- word."
· A need to get word out: Whether promoting a cause (such as trying to get a new law passed) or wishing to warn or educate public about something, some people have a passionate need to tell their particular stories. Their "p-word" is, they have no idea how to go about it. Writers who are familiar with what kinds of stories periodicals publish regularly can help these people spread their words by offering a ghostwriting service, or "as told to" articles.
These are just a few ideas to get you thinking about how you can broaden your freelance writing assignments. Your challenge is to discover what kinds of "p-word" solutions you can provide as a writer, and your opportunities for growth lie everywhere!
