As a reader of this blog, you’ve probably seen some of my posts about the guys over at LearnWebDevelopment.com, and their Successful Web Designer program. I’m sure you’ve probably thought about starting your own web design business, and in fact, you may have already started one. If you’ve been hesitant to start, or if you’re not getting the results you’d like, you’re not alone. Many people are afraid that it will take a long time to start making money. Others fear that they will encounter roadblocks, and not know where to turn for help.
But what if there were a way to avoid these problems, and get right to building a successful business and making money? What if you could learn how to keep your costs low, begin earning income in a month or less, and have expert one-on-one help whenever you need it?
If you’re a freelance blogger or writer, content marketing is likely part of your job. But even other freelancers can benefit from a good content strategy.
Unfortunately for some, to participate in content marketing, you must have some content to share. And coming up with new and creative ideas for content can be tough–even if the ideas are only for your own freelancing blog.
This post is designed to help with that problem. I’m sharing a giant list of 27 content ideas that you can adapt for your own content needs. If you liked this post, you may also like Why Freelancers Need Content Too.
Everyone wants to know, what is going to be the next big social media platform? What sites will become as big as Facebook or Twitter?
The truth is that the next big social media site may already be out there. But the next popular site probably won’t be like the social media sites developed five or more years ago.
As a freelancer, you need to stay on top of social media trends. Social media is an important tool to help you market your freelancing business and connect with others. That’s not going to change. But how you do it just might change.
In this post, I share six important social media trends that I’ve observed this year.
Odds are that the next big social media platform will conform to one or more of these trends. If you liked this post, you may also like Should Freelancers “Waste” Time on Social Media?
