Social Media Can Make Learning Fun!

Teachers: Learn how to use social media for effective and fun teaching strategies.

Do You Have a Talent You Want to Market for Extra Money? I’ll Tell You Where To Go!

Listen, we’ve all got those little-used talents we probably enjoy doing but can’t seem to justify spending time on—or are just too busy otherwise to spend time on. I can admit—I am not the most talented person if you were to categorize my strengths and weaknesses.

I’m certainly no Martha Stewart.  I have the short-term memory of a three-month old cat. I’m not the most organized person with my things on the block. In fact, I don’t even think I know the definition of what organization is (as it applies to a house or a closet). I am artistically messy, I suppose. I can find anything I need to if I created the mess, but once I organize that mess, I can’t find a thing. My long-term memory is fantastic and it makes me an academic, but if you tell me to buy milk on the way home, I’m positive I’ll forget to because that takes some short-term-memory capabilities I simply don’t have. Yes, I’m pretty sure my cat’s got a better short-term memory than I have.

My Story of My One-Talent Success

But I had one talent I was not using much of for a very long time—I was always a strong writer—in grade school, high school, and college, and even working as a professor. But writing took a huge, huge backburner to my career teaching, and it’s only lately that I’ve been able to find balance and learned that I could create that hidden seldom used talent that I loved—that of writing—into a real money making career.

It’s taken a leap of faith and some good research, but in all honesty, it’s true. You can use that fantastically hidden talent of yours, and freelance it, to make an income—whether it be full time or just for extra money. And you really can do this, even if you have the short-term memory skills below that of the average kitten or the inability to organize your items and then find them later (I’m living proof).

Don’t Be Shy: Advertise Yourself

Some of the best places to go mean you have to advertise yourself a bit. But this gives you the freedom to pick the types of work you wish to do, and that’s a bonus. So, what’s the harm in advertising your skills a bit to see where it might take you? For the most part, the services don’t cost much, and they put you in contact with others that are either interested in services like yours, or requesting services like yours.

So, where can you get started? I’ll tell you my favorite place, and I’ll tell you why it’s my favorite.

Here it is:

SEO CLERKS

With this website, SEO CLERKS, you’re able to post services that you want to sell—say you’ll sell a 500 word blog for $5. Or, you’ll make a website for $150. Whatever your service or talent, you make the ad. You need to think of a catchy title to your ad to get people to click, and describe in the ad both your background (why people should pick you) and what the service is all about.

From there on SEO CLERKS, you’ll be able to select ad-ons and other features you offer with this ad (maybe additional services), your turnaround time, and really anything else you want to feature. It’s really in your hands as the freelancer.

Seller Manage Services Area

Next, a really cool service that will get you noticed more at SEO CLERKS is the Seller—Manage Services Area. After you’ve created your ads, you can actually bump 5 advertisements every 24 hours for free (there is also a paid option), category feature your ad ($50/per ad/month) or highlight your ad ($15/per ad/per month). So yes, it may take a little bit of investment to get noticed, but these prices are pretty affordable.

Category Feature: Use It!

The regular feature program on SEO CLERKS currently isn’t working, but I highly recommend the category feature option, which does work. It’s worth the money and people will see your ad. If they aren’t clicking through and ordering, then you may need to consider changing your title to something better, lowering your prices, changing your ad a bit, or adding a bump and a highlight to it. However, sometimes when people aren’t ordering, it’s because of the price being too high for the website’s clients or the title not being catchy. So yes, your ad needs to be good, and if you’re just getting started, be realistic about price. You may need to do some work just to build up a reputation.

Emails You About Potential Customers For Your Bids

Once you’ve got your ads up and selected, if a person posts a service in your category and is still looking for a freelancer, you’ll get an Email and an opportunity to come bid on the service. This is another great way to get noticed—don’t overlook this feature. It’s led me to some new clients who otherwise would have never found me.

So notice customers can look and order straight from you, but even if they don’t there is a way to get your freelancing on here started simply by watching for those Emails, and posting bids to customers looking to hire freelancers in categories you fit into.

Discussion Forum Activity Can Boost Sales

I’ve also found it very helpful to be active in the forums. You’ll meet clients and freelancers that way and they’ll see you as a more interested and available freelancer than somebody that isn’t in the forums. Basically, you are getting free advertising by participating in the discussions, and I’ve found plenty of interested parties that way.

So if you’re not ready for freelancer.com or upwork.com, and you want to post a service first to see how things go, I highly suggest this website. I think it’s got more offerings and capabilities for freelancers than many of the other websites out there like it. And it’s certainly easier to break into than say, the overloaded but popular Fiverr.com.

At SEO CLERKS, you’ll get your feet wet faster. You control the ads and the categories, and you can bid on those open projects that fit you. Really, the sky is the limit here, but the key is to be realistic about the fact you are just starting out either at SEO CLERKS or freelancing as a writer. You aren’t going to be able to get high-paying gigs right away—plan on doing some work for the feedback at first. And if you’re willing to do that, you will get those high-paying gigs.

With these lessons in mind, you should be able to do just fine. Isn’t it time to follow your dream, even if you just want a side income? I’m sure as heck glad I did, and even my lame shortcomings don’t seem to make a difference to my clients. They don’t care if I’m not Martha Stewart, they don’t live near me anyway. And they don’t care if I forgot the milk. They just care about me being a good writer.

So rock on writing, and good luck!

 

This Week’s Published Articles By Yours Truly

Hi everybody! As always, while I work to build my blog and website dream of making this a place for freelance writers’ free education and job access, I write in my niches. I envision my website will eventually be a place where I can hire some of you as writers to contribute your experiences to teach others as well. As I am in the early phases of generating income to do that, I still write and publish as a fashion, beauty, celeb, and pet blogger.

So, here’s this week’s list of published articles by yours truly. I’d be honored if you read them and eventually I can’t wait to be sharing information like this about other writers that become writers for this website and blog:

Four Little Known Effects of Sleep Deprivation on your Skin

Go Boutique and Help Your Community!

Get a Classic for your Wardrobe…The Little Black Dress!

What do you need for your new puppy?

And to update you all on how my freelance writers’ website dream is going, it’s going great. I am finding loads of love and support from a variety of places. It will take some time to get everything up affiliate wise to generate money to hire writers, but I am totally floored about how well it’s gone. So here’s lots of love back to my supporters. xoxo

So What’s the @#*%$ Point of this Blog and Two Interesting New Jobs for Writers

Hi guys,

I know there are some of you out there that know what the eventual goal of my blog and website are. There are others of you out there wondering what the @#%$ is going on with my blog. Trust me, there are many days I wonder myself what the @#%$ I’m doing. It’s a gig that takes a lot of hard work and dedication on my part to make it grow.

Writers Jobs and Education

Well, I’m growing it and proud of it, and the point of this website is not only to be a free forum for both jobs and education for writers (and yes, I will eventually develop some classes and offer those as well as interactive tutorials, videos, and all the stuff I know how to do for you to teach you all about writing since I’ve been an online writing professor for 16 years).

This Blog Will Generate Employment for Writers Like You

But that’s not the only two goals I have. I want to be able to use whatever affiliate, investment, or whatever money it generates to pay myself back since I have to buy a lot of the stuff I write about for now, and to hire other writers to write for me—again about writers’ jobs and writers’ education (sharing stories and experiences).

This Blog Will Also Showcase Portfolios for Writers Like You

I also hope to allow writers to make portfolios and showcase. Yes, I know I showcase too, but it’s my blog so I can do what I want with it (imagine me sticking out my tongue now) but honestly it’s a goal I have to allow others to do it, too. So much of what I’m doing I’m opening up to others whenever I can generate any type of profit.

So, the MAJOR goal is to create jobs for freelance writers with this website. Right now I can only ask you if you want to contribute, in which case you can, but I feel bad asking without paying for that talent.

So How’s The Blog Doing So Far?

And the truth so far about how it’s going with this blog and website is that it’s going quite well. I am pleasantly surprised by how well it’s been received. I’m positive I’ll be able to reach the major goal, although it will take some time, it’s getting there. And I’m massively excited about the idea I had since I am one of those great idea people that typically doesn’t follow through or even start the idea. Well, I couldn’t let this one go.

NOW onto the jobs I’ve found.

I’ve got two new and interesting jobs for you to take a peek at. Who knows, this could be your ticket to the better life. Click on the titles to see more.

A & M Editor.

Oxford University Press Acquisitions Editor.

So what’s the descriptions for these jobs? Well, that’s why I put hyperlinks in, but to make a long story short, you go to New York to edit stuff for some pretty big companies.

How did I find these jobs? I’m a member of this website (again, click on the name, hyperlink included):

Startwire.com

It’s worth a look and they do have remote jobs for writers on Startwire.com. They basically will send you daily updates of job matches (and the jobs really do match with them unlike some other very random job matches I get from other job search sites), and you can also advertise your skills to potential employers through them, although it does cost to do this.

I’ve found Startwire to be worthwhile as far as the types and amount of writers’ jobs they advertise. So it’s worth it to take a whirl if you’re looking for employment.

Good luck with your job search!

Check Out My New Publications!

So I’ve got some new article publications to announce this week. If you want to check out my articles, feel free to. I’d be honored if you read them!
