Despite the fact that Google+ has been public for two years now, there are still some freelancers who don’t use it yet.
I get it. We’re all busy. It takes time to be involved in a social media network. And you don’t think you have that time.
But if you’re leaving Google+ out of your freelance marketing strategy, you’re missing out. That’s true for all freelancers, but it’s especially true if you’re a freelance writer or blogger.
In this post, I’ll explain why Google+ is more important than ever for freelancers. I’ll also explain how you can get started with your Google+ freelance marketing strategy. If you enjoyed this post, you may also like Hot Google+ Tips for Freelancers.

Many freelancers ignore LinkedIn in favor of other social media platforms. Other freelancers think that all social media is a waste of time–they’re wrong, of course.
Social media is not going to go away any time soon. LinkedIn is a strong social media player. You ignore social media and LinkedIn at your peril.
In this post, I’ll outline the reasons (new and old) why I still think that LinkedIn should play an important role in your freelance marketing strategy.
“How can I use social media for my freelancing business? I don’t really know anybody?”
If you’re hesitating about using social media because you feel your social network isn’t very big, think again. You know more people than you realize. And social media is a great way to expand your network.
Yet, one of the biggest complaints people make about using social media for their freelancing business is that they don’t know who to connect with.
In this post, I’ll help you build your social media network. I list 12 people that every freelancer should connect with through social media and I explain why.
Most experienced freelancers already understand the benefits of being involved in social media. They already know that social media is a great (and still mostly free) option for networking, getting the word out, and other types of marketing.
But most freelancers don’t really make the most of the social networks that they are in. Many social networks contain features that would be of help to freelancers–if only they knew about them.
In this post, I’m taking a deeper look at Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and Twitter. I’ll highlight over seven little-known features for these platforms that you could be using for your freelancing business.
