Marketing Your Services as a Web Content Writer

September 28, 2009 | Comments Off on Marketing Your Services as a Web Content Writer

 

Choosing the career path of a web content writer is something that a lot of people are turning to these days. Some are looking for ways and means to supplement their existing incomes and some would rather just work from the comforts of their homes. Whatever may be your reasons for choosing to become a web content writer, you will still need to make sure people and prospective employers know what you do. In order to achieve this you need to market yourself like you would if you were selling a product instead.

Build your website
If you are serious about becoming a web content writer and want others to take you seriously as well, you should consider creating a website. The website that you create will act as a visiting card and a sort of a brochure for the services that you offer. This will also keep you ahead of the competition. Ideally the website that you put together should contain your basic information like contact details etc. It should also contain a portfolio of your work, i.e. web content articles that have been written by you. It would be advisable to put up samples of all the topics that you are capable of writing on. This will give the reader an idea of what you are capable of. You should also include a rate sheet so that the visitor to your site knows exactly how much you charge.

Advertise at forums
Once you have put together your website that promotes you as a web content writer, you should start targeting forums. Webmaster forums are good places to advertise your services. You should also know that there are plenty of webmaster forums that will pay you handsomely to write web content for them. What you get paid here will be significantly more that you will get paid at any website where you have to bid for work.

Promote your work
As a web content writer, when you write about a topic on your own, i.e. not for a client, don’t just file it away on your computer. Promote it. You might wonder how you can get this done. It is really quite simple. All you need to do is submit your article to article directories. There are a lot of people who use these article directories including those that are looking for writers. However when you do this do not forget to add a couple of line containing your information at the end of each article.

Explore writing for bigger websites
If you have been a web content writer for long enough and have a sufficiently large collection of articles, it is time for you to explore writing for bigger websites that are resource banks like maybe Wikipedia for example. Writing for websites such as these will not only pay you handsomely but you will discover that websites like these give you the most amount of exposure. In order to explore this option though you must be a seasoned and experienced content writer.
