You need connections online, specifically LINKS to your Web site so that people can find you.
Links to your Web site help you in two ways:
* They bring buyers of your freelance writing services directly to your site; and
* They lift your site in the search engine rankings, so that when someone types “freelance writer” into a search engine, your site appears.
Links are VITAL… links are the currency of the Web. You’ll make money from any links to your site. This is why promotional tactics like article marketing work so well, they give you links to your site.
Since links are so necessary, in Lesson 3 of SYWON I give members two links from my sites. One is a straight link, the other is a blurb on ContentBee.
Here are easy ways to get links to your site:
* Use Craigslist and other free classifieds sites
* Write articles for the article directories
* Join relevant forums (NOT writer’s forums, because writers can’t hire you)
* Trade links with other sites
* Write comments on blog posts – useful comments are always welcome
* Create a Squidoo lens to your site
* Post to Twitter – follow me on Twitter, and you’ll see I post to Twitter every day
You must make connections online, and these happen via links. On the Web, the more links you have, the more income you will make as a freelance writer.
