I want to advertise my writing services

Hello Warriors!

I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on how I can advertise my writing business. Outside of the Warrior Forum?

Suggestions, Ideas, and Thoughts are warmly welcomed.

Thanks!

      So she should create a blog post about her writing services, spend a few months to rank it, hope it gets to page 1 and brings her organidc traffic?


      Brilliant!

    You can also join writing freelance type websites such as upwork.com, writeraccess.com, etc.

    There are a ton of places for you to post your profile, portfolio and get freelance jobs.

    What kind of writing do you do? Your website sound like ghostwriting but you mention being a copywriter which are two different things and require different types of marketing. In my opinion, anyway.

    For blog post jobs this is a good site: https://problogger.com/jobs/

    There are Facebook groups where writers can advertise their services such as the Cult of Copy Job Board.

    Don't overlook local markets. Most cities have local Facebook groups where businesses can advertise once a week for free. Read the rules before posting. Many small businesses need website content, articles, or blog posts.

    If you run an ad here on the Warrior Forum you can post a link to it in your sig. However, I no longer find WF to be a good source of clients.

    Guest blogging is good place to advertise as it allows you to leverage other peoples audiences to build awareness and share your content. If you do not have a blog I would suggest that you set up a word-press blog and writing informative content . So I say that best way to promote your "writing services is to demonstrate that you can deliver valuable content .

    If you want to work as a writer, you need to have a website with your business and a plan to promote yourself. Guest posting is not a good idea for self-promotions, unless the readers of that article are interested in buying writing services.

    If they are not, it's pointless. If you show up some awesome text will attract people to read more from you, not to buy more.

    You need to focus on your clients. Depending on what you write, you need to know who they are, where they hang up and how to reach them.

    After you know all this, you can think about developing a plan to promote your writing services. But again, without a specific website or platform where you sell your services, no one is going to guess you can be hired for writing.

    Freelance sites is where the money is at when it comes to writing. But you can also create a post in "Warriors for Hire" section. Give a few review copies in exchange for testimonials and you're good to go.

    Hi,

    If your writing services are primarily B2b, definitely get yourself onto Linkedin. Linkedin has a ton of people looking for writing and copywriting services and is blowing up bigtime at the moment.

    Get on Linkedin, optimise your profile, start creating connections, post valuable content in the feeds, send valuable content to your connections and close them into clients.

    It does take time and effort but once you crack it, its a great source of leads and clients.

    Hi Jaysmyne,

    - run a helpful, self-hosted, WP dot org blog; link to your services page
    - connect with freelance writers; comment on their blogs and promote them, leading to referral work and cross-promotions
    - take out an ad on ProBlogger.net
    - write your rear end off LOL; skilled writers tend to land work more easily because they outshine most writers, who do not practice enough.

    Happy Freelancing

    I think that you are very suitable for SEO or something from freelancing. upwork.com, freelance.com - the most popular sites for finding freelancers.

    First of all you need to tell what kind of stuff you write. Are you a technical writer or other. Writing good contents is today's policy. Even though you use keywords but they are useless until you have a content which is enough long and clearly stated. Now you said that you want to publish your article for engagement of traffic by advertising. I started from blogger. you don't need to publish 5 blogs in a day but you need to write amazing content. On the blogger you can see how many engagement you are having. But the most important is doing seo. There is a high scope your content will flourish if you do quality seo. Lastly you can do social media marketing. These are more than enough. You don't need to have a website for this but if you can make one than it will be a a+. best of luck

    Just my two cents here but I'll add it onto what others have said.

    I wish more writers created full-service or content management services as opposed to just writing. I have content written regularly but I still have to add it to my blog, schedule it, format it, add photos, correct the on-page SEO, and then market it. I would definitely pay a premium for a service that did this.

      Big security risk though, which is why most people avoid it.

    There are several online marketing forums. Some of them have very strong marketplaces where you can sell services like that.
    Create a thread on each of these forums and you'll be seen by way more potential clients.

    Freelancer.com used to be good for writers but in recent years there's a lot of heckling going on there and employers wanting the sky the moon and rain for a tuppence. Really annoying. If you know exactly what you want to write about... for example the tourist trade, try approaching local tour operators directly. Which is what I did at some point. I hope that helps.

    You should share it in all the social media platforms.

      I'm curious what you're basing this on. Have you advertised writing services on Facebook and received a good response?

      I've been ghostwriting for a decade and I've had success in Facebook groups and job boards and some with my own page. Not so much with ads.

      So if you have some insight on how to accomplish this, please share.

    Hi Jasmyne! You can join various platforms for freelancing like freelancer, upwork, guru etc to get register there and get hired for writing projects which improves your profile. Other than freelancing promote your work on social media like create a facebook page and do promotions there.

    Setting up a hub on Hubpages is a good way to not only get your writing out there, but get paid at the same time, in a number of different ways.

    You can hire a virtual assistant to look for writing opportunities for you

    You can even instruct your VA to 'open' opportunities and you 'close' them replying to follow up emails/providing custom samples.
