Last month we talked about WordPress and why the demand for WordPress websites is only going to grow. That’s why it’s so important to get started now and be at the front of this trend.
Today, I’d like to have Conrad Feagin – the founder of LearnWebDevelopment.com – explain why WordPress is so impressive and popular. But, first I have an announcement…
LearnWebDevelopment.com’s last WordPress Bootcamp was a huge success and sold out well before the deadline. Because of this they have announced another WordPress Bootcamp starting in December. Yes, it’s almost a month away, but there are three BIG benefits to registering now:
- 1. You’ll save $200 on early bird pricing (that’s over half off)!
- 2. You’ll get “Building Websites in WordPress” immediately so you can get started today.
- 3. You’ll secure your spot before they’re all gone.
Freelancers benefit greatly from having a freelancing blog.
But, a big obstacle for many freelancers (especially those freelancers who aren’t writers) is finding ideas to write about. This problem of knowing what to write on a freelancing blog keeps many freelancers from blogging.
In this post, I’ll give you a hand. I’ll share some ideas about topics you can blog about on your own freelancing blog. Then I’ll invite you to share your own topic ideas in the comments.
Any long-term freelancer will tell you that most freelancers go through ups and downs–periods of high pay and periods of low pay. But the feast or famine cycle can take new freelancers by surprise.
While there are definitely some steps you can take to avoid the feast or famine cycle, for many freelancers the real questions is this–”How am I going to get through this slow period?”
In this post, I’ll provide five tips for surviving your freelancing famine periods (plus a bonus tip). Even if you’ve been freelancing for a while, you may find a freelance survival tip that you can use.
You’re about to discover how to face the one task that most freelancers probably dread–collecting a late payment.
When a client is late making a payment, it can set off a whole horrible negative train of thought starting with “I’m not going to be able to make my house payment/rent” and ending with “Did this client hate my work?”
But worse than the negative energy that a late payment creates is the very real fact that, like most freelancers, you rely on receiving your payments in a timely fashion so that you can live.
This is true, unless, of course:
- You’re independently wealthy and freelancing is your hobby.
- You live with mom and dad and freelancing provides your fun money.
If those two points apply to you, you probably won’t care much about this post. For the rest of us, though, a late payment is a serious thing and a seriously late payment is a dreaded thing.
In this post, I’ll explain how you can develop a proactive process to minimize the number of late payments that you face. I’ll also explain what to do after a payment is late.
