Why Your Freelance Writer Website Makes You Sound Like an Idiot (And How to Get Your True Voice Back)

Why Your Freelance Writer Website Makes You Sound Like an Idiot (And How to Get Your True Voice Back)

Your dream client is visiting your freelance writer website right now, while you’re reading this.

They heard about you, they think you sound awesome, and their budget is huge.

But… what they read on your website puts them off the idea. They don’t pick up the phone. They hit backspace, and they go somewhere else.

Do you want that to happen to you?

Of course not.

But it happens more often than you’d ever like to think. So let’s do something about that, today.

Quitting Your Day Job without a Safety Net

Quitting Your Day Job without a Safety Net

As a freelance web content writer, finding the ideal moment to quit your day job for full-time self-employment can be a tricky process. Although you might be dying to put in your two-week’s notice, flip your boss the bird and ride off into the sunset of your new freelance career, most of the “so-called experts” out there recommend that you have at least a six-month emergency fund and a full roster of clients on hand before you even start inching towards the door.

But this is the real world! You and I both know that things don’t always go the way the financial experts tell us that they should – and I’ve found that, for many freelance writers, this results in a tremendous amount of confusion as to when the appropriate time is to actually make the leap to self-employment.

How Not to Fail Your First Few Months of Web Writing

How Not to Fail Your First Few Months of Web Writing

When I started as a freelance writer, I decided I wanted to write not only for magazines, but for online markets. It was a logical decision; everything seems to be going digital, after all. Copyblogger insisted 2013 would be the year for online content writers, so I figured I better hop on that train ASAP.

Despite my enthusiasm and what I perceived to be foresight on my part, I made some very big mistakes early on in my freelance career and ended up struggling through the first three months with no progress or samples to show. No one should have to go through what I did, so I’m here to tell you exactly where and how I screwed up.

Don’t Do What I Did!

How to Get Over Negativity and Advance Your Freelance Writing Career

How to Get Over Negativity and Advance Your Freelance Writing Career

Things don’t always go the way we plan or dream them. They rarely do as a matter of fact.

No matter what we do in life, at one point or another, we are bound to feel that awful bite of disappointment. The feeling is multiplied when we realize that we not only let ourselves down but others as well. And it gets worse when these “little” misfortunes come after one another culminating in one big ball of negativity and despair.

This is the part where I mention how the last few months of 2012 were like for me. I was angry, envious of people, and resentful of my parents.

What is Content Marketing… And Why Should Writers Care?

If you’re a website owner, you’ve got plenty of different ways to get visitors to your site. You can pay for ads through Google Adwords and other PPC platforms, you can optimize your site to get it displayed in the search engine results pages using SEO techniques, or you can build up your social presence on sites like Facebook and Twitter in order to increase your referral traffic from these platforms.

But one particular traffic generation strategy that’s been getting a lot of attention lately – and that all web content writers need to be aware of – is “content marketing.”

The Nuts and Bolts of a Web Content Writing Business

The Nuts and Bolts of a Web Content Writing Business

Last week, I shared with you what an average day in my life looks like. And while I’m sure you found that just fascinating (as fascinating as the daily doings of somebody who loves naps can be!), what I felt was missing from the article was a description of how I got to this point in my career in the first place.

So today, I want to take you behind the scenes of my web content writing business and show you how web content writing businesses operate. If you’ve never heard of web content writing as a career choice before, read on – this article will clarify how web writers work and how they make money.

A Day in the Life of a Web Content Writer

A Day in the Life of a Web Content Writer

I swear, I’m half writing this one for you guys and half writing it for my parents, who never seem to quite believe that this whole “web writing” thing is how I make a living. But anyways, I thought it’d be interesting to give you all a feel for how an average day looks in the life of a professional web content writer.

(And of course, this article comes with the mandatory disclaimer that there’s really no “standard” day or set schedule when you’re a web content writer. The description that follows is how some of my days look, but my schedule’s always up in the air depending on whether I’m working from home or the office and whether I have any other commitments planned for the day.)

The #1 Worst Place to Find Freelance Writing Clients

The #1 Worst Place to Find Freelance Writing Clients

Imagine, for a second, that there was a website out there that was filled with freelance writing clients – all of whom are ready and waiting to hire you for their web content needs. A place where you could browse listing after listing of potential projects, submitting applications to only those that interest you and fulfill you on a deeply personal level…

In fact, websites like this do exist. They’re called freelance portal websites, with the most popular options being Guru.com, Elance.com and Freelancer.com.

But here’s the thing… Despite seeming like a freelance writer’s dream destination, they’re actually the worst possible place to find clients (at least, in my own personal experience).
