With the New Year upon us, many who want to make money online will turn those wants into a reality. The beginning of the year is a perfect time to start marketing for blogging jobs. Following are three tips on how to make this an attractive service for potential clients.
1. Offer Blog Packs: Selling your posts in packs will make them a much more attractive option. This is advantageous for you and potential clients.
Why Selling Blog Posts in Packs is Ideal for Blog Writers
When you’re a freelance writer, the more money you can make on one transaction, the better. So instead of selling one post, you should strive to sell a month’s worth of post at one time, for example.
You could pitch it to prospects in the following manner: “Easily drive continuous traffic to your blog. Get a month’s worth of blog posts for one low price.”
Why Selling Blog Posts in Packs is Ideal for Clients
On the client side, buying blog posts in bulk frees them to focus on their core business — plain and simple. Many online entrepreneurs soon find out that blogging is time consuming. This means more oppportunity for you, a professional blog writer.
2. Highlight the Advantages of SEO Blogging: SEO blogging is simply writing blog posts with SEO in mind. Many blog owners don’t do this. They think more in terms of simply updating their blogs.
But if you point out to them that each post should be written with certain keywords and phrases in mind, it highlights not only your expertise as a freelance writer — but your expertise as a freelance writer who knows how to drive traffic to their online presence.
3. Offer to Repurpose Blog Posts: I have one client I write blog posts for who makes each post do triple duty. I write one post three different ways for him. He uses one on his primary blog, one to submit to article directories and the other on a website.
I charge one rate for the initial post, and another rate to rewrite each post. So in essence, I get paid three times for one blog post.
How to Get Paid 4 Times for 1 Blog Post
You can offer this service to clients and even get paid four times for one blog post. How? By offering to submit the blog post to article directories for the client. This gets them valuable backlinks, and is only one more step for you. The hard part is already done when you write the post.
To open an account for a client at a leading article directory and submit the posts there will only take a few extra minutes. And bang — you’ve added another income stream to your blog writing services!
There are lots of potential clients leaping on the web at the beginning of the New Year. Like a diet, they’re committed to finally starting — in this case an online business. If you’re a freelance writer looking for blogging jobs, these three tips will help you land more in 2009.
