Good writing skills will help you to achieve faster in this area. If you are not qualified, consider taking a degree or some additional course to improve your writing skills.

2) Communicate clearly: When you want to write an article, communicate clearly. Write something which motivates the people and is positive. You can make constructive negative remarks, however it should not hurt anyone.

3) Adopt self discipline: Since you would be writing for a company or employer, you need to have self discipline and have a sense of responsibility towards them. If you promise to delivery certain articles or content by a specific time, delivery them within deadlines.

4) Update yourself: This is one of the important aspects as a freelance writer. You need to update yourself with latest happenings across your country and world.
