Every crisis offers an opportunity, and for freelance writers, the global financial crisis offers many more writing jobs. Businesses with websites are making money, and companies which don’t have sites are realizing they need to scramble onto the Web immediately. For many verticals, the train has already left the station: companies which arrive late will watch their profits dwindle.
If you can write — and you understand social media marketing — you’re in a position to coin money.
Let’s look at the changing business landscape, and how you can take advantage of it.
1. Web Writing Offers Unlimited Opportunities
Firstly, understand that the Web is built on words. Anyone who can write, can make money these days.
Businesses need websites and blogs. If they already have sites, they need more content. They need copywriters to sell on those sites, and Web writers to write everything from simple articles to video scripts and ebooks.
Then businesses need a way to promote their content.
Social media marketing does that. Since it’s not advertising, it eliminates the “ad blindness” factor.
2. Get Familiar With Social Media
Do you have a Twitter account and a Facebook account? If you don’t now would be a good time to create those accounts.
Today, the keyword for companies is “engagement.” They need to engage their current and prospective customers where their customers hang out, which is on the social media sites.
If you can help them to do that, you’re golden.
3. Combine Web Writing and Social Media to Get Powerful Results for Your Clients
Last year it was enough for most companies to have a website. Once their site was up, they created a blog, did some advertising and everything was rosy. They made money, they were happy.
While that’s still essential, nowadays companies need to make an effort to engage with social media.
This is where you come in.
Few freelance writers understand the social media sites, let alone how to help their clients use those sites. If you can show your clients how to engage their customers, you’re adding huge value to your services. Do that, and you’ll be booked solid.
