Content marketing is HOT, HOT, HOT in 2014. So one of the most important writing services you can offer for your clients is blogging.
Blogging for clients is stupidly simple. It can take less than half an hour a day, and garner you $1400 a month. What’s not to like about that? (We’re talking about ONE client here — you can blog for as many clients as you choose.)
Here’s a magic word for you: RETAINER
Please remember that word. A “retainer” is a fee a client pays you to secure your services when they need them. When a client has you on retainer, it’s understood that they get your attention when they need it. Retainer fees are paid monthly, and if a client doesn’t need you in that month, that’s fine. You keep the retainer.
In the late 1990s I was writing business books for Prentice Hall, and my only writing services clients were those who were on retainer. This provided a solid basis for my writing business. I didn’t have to worry about marketing. The clients paid every month, like clockwork.
As a freelancer, your aim should always be to have as many clients on retainer as you can. It simplifies things. You know how much you’ll have coming in each month, and you can make plans.
Your blogging clients are always on contract — on retainer, in other words. A contract can be for three months, or for much longer.
I adore my coaching students, so I sent them a very special offering for “Blogging Ace: Make Six Figures in Nine Months by Doing What You Love”, which helps you to blog for business.
If you’re offering writing services, and you’re not offering business blogging, you’re missing a good and reliable source of income.
Blog for Big Companies, and Make a Six-Figure Income
You can do much better.
You can find clients who don’t advertise, but who pay well for blogging. Did you know that experienced professional bloggers charge their clients a minimum of $1000 per month, per blog? Consider that if a blogger’s working for 20 clients, that’s $20,000 a month.
You can blog for businesses too, if you’re prepared. Discover how, with Blogging Ace: Make Six Figures in Nine Months by Doing What You Love.
