As a freelance writer, it can be all too easy to find yourself spending hours chained to your desk.
One of the big perks of being freelance is the ability to set your hours and take as many breaks as you need but in reality, it doesn’t always work out like this. This can quickly lead to burnout and a whole heap of other health issues that could easily have been avoided with some changes to your routine.
Are you struggling to get as many freelance writing gigs as you’d like? It’s probably not a reflection of your talent and it might not even be related to your pitching techniques.
It may be because you’re missing one crucial piece of the puzzle: you don’t have enough social proof to convince potential clients to take a chance on you.
When it comes to selling yourself on your writer website, your About page is one of the most important pages to get right. It’s one of the most visited pages on the average website but unfortunately, it’s also one of the pages that many freelance writers sell themselves short on.
As a freelance writer, it pays to have a strong personal brand to show potential clients that you know your stuff.
You probably already have a LinkedIn profile, and you may also be active on Twitter and have a business Facebook page but there are other less obvious ways to use social media to demonstrate your credentials and expertise.
