Have you got your own website yet?
Yesterday I wrote about the importance of having your own professional writing website. Today will help you learn how to use knowledge gained from your clients (and mine) to help you promote your own website.
I've recently read some reports and e-books from internet marketing gurus and realised that I already know an awful lot about SEO and internet marketing. I am continuing to make efforts to strive to put my knowledge to use to help clients and help myself. It's pretty cool when writing for someone is a really symbiotic relationship and that's why I've chosen internet marketing as one of my niches. It gets me earning money while learning how to earn more money. Very cool. Did I just say cool in two sentences (now three sentences) in a row? Being careful of repetition in your writing is often important but being careful to craft intentional repetitiveness is a huge part of SEO writing.
If you can get your copy to use similar words or synonyms, you're doing LSI article writing. See how I just did that? I just linked my professional website to a term that I'm ranking for in the search engines already. I did so on a site that's related to writing which is even better. That is going to help me get more clients who want those types of services and will help increase my rankings for this site and my professional website. Last month a client found me on page three for a term related to that one and by doing more linking to the terms I'm already ranking for and related terms, he's going to maybe see me move to page two and I might rank for another related term which brings up my overall rankings in that category.
101 Ways To Tackle SEO
Some clients claim that article marketing, hub pages and squidoo lenses are the way to go. Others create mini websites pointing to their main site. Others create silos. Guest posting can also be a huge help, too. Because search engine marketing is an evolving chess game, I choose to dabble a little in all areas I've learned about. Working as a head content writer for several SEO companies has definitely taught me a lot about marketing myself as a writer. Marketing yourself with SEO will get you more exposure, more jobs and will save you time because instead of trolling for jobs, the clients will start to come to you.
