Social Media Just Might Get You Your Dream Job: Sign Up for Twitter and LinkedIn

Hi wonderful writers,

When you’re looking for job resources, don’t discount social media. I did a bit of research on Twitter today and found several great feeds that list probably thousands of available writing jobs, some remote, others not. So, if you aren’t actively using social media, especially Twitter and LinkedIn, to poke around for something good, make sure you sign up for those accounts. After all, they are free, and signing up just might give you the job of your dreams.

After doing some research, I put together this nice Twitter list you can go through and look closely at while you job search. Good luck and I hope me taking to the time to do this saves you time in your job search.

Need a Good WordPress Website Developer

Hi everybody,

So I had an epiphany regarding my own irony.

I’ve been looking for a good WordPress Website developer and it dawned on me that I should just post that on my WordPress blog. Rates need to be affordable and most of the work will be first finishing the website updates and revamping the look, followed by installing plugins and maintenance. Affordability is a plus but professionalism with your WordPress skills is key.

If interested, fill out my “Contact Us” form on my website, and I’ll follow up with further information.

Writers and Website Update, Ranking #2 at Blasting News

Hi everybody,

Thanks for the kind Emails I’ve gotten about my own articles and those that are interested in writing for the website. I’ll be back to writing more helpful freelance writing pointers again shortly. Vacations are great but I missed writing.

First, remember, if you are interested in contributing to the website to build up your portfolio, shoot me an Email. I’m saving names right now so that within the next two to three weeks I can start taking resumes and applications from those that expressed interest. If you’d like to share freelancing experiences or tips to writers and build your portfolio, this will be a great place for you—newbies are welcome. Yes, it will be paid and you can send me your rates, and it has potential to be ongoing depending on writing performance.

And if you simply need work, shoot me an Email or use the contact form on my website. By nature of what I do for this website, I have researched so much about jobs for writers I can hook you up with something right away, even if you don’t write here. There’s no obligation, I’m just happy to help, and I know a lot about great places for new writers or writers needing immediate work.

Here are the latest Blasting News articles written by yours truly, I hope you read them and enjoy. I’m ranking at #2 in the U.S. now, which is shocking me, but also truly touching and overwhelming.

Update: Writers will be needed soon, Ranking #3 at Blasting News

Hi everybody,

I’m back, and while there is still website work to be done, I took a brief vacation, and have also managed to start getting more ideas together for this website about content direction.

So, I will be hiring some writers to help me out with writing some articles soon, and while everybody is free to contribute anything related to writing experiences or writing items, software, platforms, etc, that can help other writers, I also have a list of items I want to conquer.

And remember, if you are in need of work as a writer, don’t be shy to reach out to me—not necessarily writing for the website, but just because I’m here to help and can guide you toward some opportunities that should allow you to get paid for your work pretty quickly and continuously.

While the website was down, I kept on going at Blasting News, and wanted to share a list of my political satire articles I’ve published. I’m ranking in as the #3 writer in the US at Blasting News and proud it’s going well, because it’s only going to help the promotion and development of this website, which is my little dream project. I can’t help but want to keep educating about writing, and just help writers find where they should be job wise in this crazy world.

If you are interested in writing for the website, as I’m already creating a list of people who wish to write for the website. After I develop the list I’ll ask some of you for examples, prices, etc. While payment won’t be big bucks, it’ll be decent, and you’ll get the chance to create a portfolio and be featured as a writer on the blog.

In the meantime, check out my articles listed at Blasting News, and I’m patting myself on the back for somehow miraculously getting to #3 and developing an audience I appreciate more than this writer’s words can express.

Thanks, your support and reading is appreciated!

Social Media Can Make Learning Fun!

If you are interested in this topic, my Iatest article is covering it.  Please comment on it:

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!

On-line freelance writing is quite popular because it’s an outstanding way to break in the small business. But we know that freelance writing is unquestionably not for everybody, regardless how simple it might seem. It takes loads of work and commitment that frequently rivals your usual day jobs. Most pay within the freelance writing small business is per a specific quantity of writing and not according to your time, so if you are unable to write quickly, it might be hard for you to succeed within this enterprise.

Benefits

But, there’s a huge benefit, because it certainly never gets boring. An independent ghostwriter can avoid routine jobs that’ll become monotonous. A great place to begin searching for freelance writing jobs may be the net, and I’ll be providing you with some information below. Now, you have some different approaches to go searching for freelance writing gigs and long-term work. Even though there is lots of work online, people that are serious about a writing career should appear offline too. They give you the possibility to develop skills that are vital for those who are seriously interested in creating a living from freelance writing.

Mileage

Among the most crucial parts of producing a living for a freelance writer is getting the absolute most mileage from your articles. If you prefer to participate it is advisable to read a few good guide books initially, to get to understand the fundamentals of writing contracts, what things to ask for, what things to avoid, etc. It’s possible to respond to `freelance writers wanted’ offers and create money writing, despite no prior experience whatsoever. In fact, there are hundreds of writers there making a high number of dollars monthly for their writing talents.

Copywriting is among the most popular writing assignments for freelancers since there are always new services and products requiring promotion. The very first consideration for an online writing job is to locate a wonderful company that may supply you with the writing jobs for a very long time. If you would like your freelance writing business to grow, then you need to have a look at those software applications which could let you do tasks more efficiently and enhance your productivity.

Especially as a self-employed writer, when your weekly income fluctuates constantly, solid money sense is needed to drive overall income upwards. That conveys that it’s possible to earn an income from freelance writing!

Find Your Next Gig

Since freelancers are almost always looking for that next gig, I’ve got a couple of good writer’s websites for you to help you find it.

Freelance Writing Gigs.com: This website is remarkably full of online jobs. Take a peek and make sure you have your resume ready to apply. You’ll be surprised at how much information you can find here.

Indeed.com You’d be surprised how many writing jobs you can find on Indeed. Don’t forget to search around here, and take an as good look. Make sure you have that linked in profile ready.

Craigslist. com: Craigslist is another surprising place you can go to find a wealth of information on jobs for freelance writing.

And don’t forget, if you want to create a freelancing profile and bid, make sure to give Freelancer and Upwork a try.

Freelancer is the largest marketplace in the world for not only freelance writers, but every freelancer imaginable. If you can hangout online and make time to talk to people hiring writers, you’ll have the ability to make a quick impression and get work quickly. Here, you pay a monthly fee for the amount of bids and the type of account you want.

Upwork also has instant messaging, and you can get work the same day you apply, but things tend to move a little more slowly than Freelancer. Still, it’s worth it to hang out on Upwork or get the app to your phone while you’re online or working so you appear as available for messaging to possible clients–this is going to get you more attention and more projects.  On Upwork, you either pay nothing or $10 monthly, but you do have to pay for each bid, which will cost you around 50 cents to one dollar per bid. So, you want to pick things you not only want to do, but you feel fits what employers expect out of a freelancer.

Start Freelancing Today!

http://wp.me/p7EeeG-2f

If you are chomping at the bit to get started with your freelancing, know there are some great places out there where you can start working today. For each of these websites, you must make an account and pay a monthly fee, which can vary based on the type of account you wish to get, and sometimes you must pay for your bids.

These marketplaces can be very competitive but they are an excellent place for new writers to begin. You can find work here if you are patient, and start building up your portfolio while you get your name out there and some of your writing published. You’ll also be able to build up references, and as long as you focus on writing well and providing great customer service, you’ll do fine.

I actually got my start using accounts on these websites and I still occasionally use them. I still have clients I work for that formed relationships with me over these marketplaces, so there is plenty of opportunity out there if you know how to approach it.

It’s All In The Approach

The two most important things you need to know about approaching these websites is how to make your portfolio, resume, and cover letter all effective and eye catching, especially when you are just starting and have no reviews (since you will have to compete with some established people). The second thing is knowing how to talk to your customers and pitch your ideas as well as your approach to writing for them so they will want to hire you. Basically, you have to have a decent plan.

We’ll Cover Client Service and Communication

These two concepts I will be providing pointers and blogs on for you shortly, so hang tight. I’ll let you know how I overcame these boundaries, learned how to make my approach to writing for others with my unique strategy that also focused on treating all my clients individually and effectively. Some of this is about your personality and approach to writing, so you’ll have to develop your own approach to it, but you will get a good example in a few days when I tell you how I did it.

So, what are these marketplaces? The first two, Upwork and Freelancer, have it all, from direct live messaging services to an excellent selection of opportunity. Now, you may have to start small and write for a bit less than you want to build up your reputation at first, but it will pay off later. The last two, Guru and Outsource, are excellent places for projects, but do not have direct messaging, so getting projects can be a bit slower. However, all are worth a try.

Four Marketplaces So You Can Start Freelancing Today!

Freelancer is the largest marketplace in the world for not only freelance writers, but every freelancer imaginable. If you can hangout online and make time to talk to people hiring writers, you’ll have the ability to make a quick impression and get work quickly. Here, you pay a monthly fee for the amount of bids and the type of account you wan.

Upwork also has instant messaging, and you can get work the same day you apply, but things tend to move a little more slowly than Freelancer. Still, it’s worth it to hang out on Upwork or get the app to your phone while you’re online or working so you appear as available for messaging to possible clients–this is going to get you more attention and more projects.  On Upwork, you either pay nothing or $10 monthly, but you do have to pay for each bid, which will cost you around 50 cents to one dollar per bid. So, you want to pick things you not only want to do, but you feel fits what employers expect out of a freelancer.

Guru.com .com has a lot of great freelance writing jobs and is well worth the sign up. You can pay monthly or yearly for an account and your bids, as it does cost each time you bid on a project. However, if you pay for the full year, you get pretty much all the bids you need and save a good deal of money. There is no instant messaging, but you will get messages from clients, and have the ability to bid per project. It’s a fairly decent paying website for freelancers, so it’s worth the wait and the sign up. Another great thing here is that newbies are hired freely without reviews as long as they have good portfolios and resumes.

Outsource.com .com also has some good paying jobs, but lacks an instant messaging/chat feature, and tends to move more slowly for getting projects. Still, it’s worth the sign up, because many of the writing projects pay well. Also, on this marketplace, newbies are welcome. A monthly account fee and per bid fee are both required, and Outsource can run a bit high on that, but when you land the decently paying projects as a newer freelancer, which is very likely here, you’ll be happy

Get Started Freelancing Today!

Which one is the best to begin with? My suggestion is to select at least one between Freelancer and Upwork, as well as one between Guru and Outsource if you cannot afford all of them right away. However, your goal should be to eventually go for all four accounts for self-promotion and also a stronger workload. There will be a lot more writing opportunity out there for you. So, after you’ve started with at least two of the four, your next step is to plan to sign up for the final two you left off your list. And, coming soon, we will cover exactly how to build your writing resume, portfolio, and cover letter, as well as how to effectively approach clients in order to maximize your job offerings.

Now, best of luck to you. Get out there and have some fun freelancing!
