Let's kick off this week full of freebies and announcements with a simple worksheet. Below you'll find a download link for a free SWOT analysis worksheet. This is a very early excerpt from the next Web Writer's Guide e-book, set to be a marketing workbook for freelance writers.
The first page of the .pdf includes a brief background on what a SWOT analysis is (lets you map out your strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats), and it includes a sample filled out for a hypothetical freelance writer. The second page is a blank worksheet you can print and fill out in your own marketing planning process for your freelance writing services.
If you'd like to share this free tool with other freelance writers, please remember to link to this page or our list of free stuff for writers. Do not hotlink our download files directly. Thanks!
