Quick Tip for Freelance Writing Success

Here’s your Quick Tip for Freelance Writing Success this week . . .

Create/Update Your Project Page

I got this idea from reading the article, Rank Higher on Google With One Simple Action, which stated:

Update/add to your project page: Eg, add a recent project and mention the products or services that were involved. By doing this you update your projects page as well as your products or services page simultaneously. … This is almost a self-generating process as one page impacts the other.

Not only is this good for search engine juice (as the post points out), it can also help you land more freelance writing jobs. How?

Well, the more serious a client is about hiring you, the deeper they’re likely to dig into your site. And if you’ve worked on a project similar to theirs – bingo! – you have a much better chance of landing the gig.

So if you don’t have a project page on your site, add one. And if you do have one, keep it updated regularly. This way, you don’t forget.

FYI, here’s a list of projects we’ve worked on (See “TYPES OF PROJECTS WE’VE WORKED ON” section). See, it doesn’t have to be fancy?

Get the ebook that pushed my freelance writing career to the next levelallowing me to travel and live abroad, get out of debt and really “live the freelance life.” One freelancer wrote:

First let me say thanks for answering my question(s) in your previous blog posts. I am writing to let you know, that I had my first $200 day after following the steps you outline in your e-book. I sent . . . emails pitching myself as a niche writer . . .

A few days later, an SEO company called me, explained the scope of the project and sent me the funds through paypal without hesitation. . . . they are a local company. They said if they like my work, they will have much more in store, and are willing to pay higher fees.

For some reason, I thought your advice would only work for you. I know, call me naive, but I guess it seemed too good to be true. Luckily, I discovered you and liked what you had to say. If it wasn’t for you, I think I would still be trying to break into magazine writing.

This freelancer is not unique. You can do it too!

P.P.S.: You can now order any of our products (like the SEO copywriting course) and take up to 6 months to pay.
