Freelancers: Put Your Skills to Use! (And a Bit of My Story)

It may start out feeling like a juggling act, but it gets easier!

It may start out feeling like a juggling act, but it gets easier!

Yesterday I posted a little blurb on my Facebook page about this is a message that needs to be spread far and wide.

I’ll go ahead and quote the post for you.

“When I was mainly a freelance writing I remember my clients would come back all of the time asking for more Amazon reviews. I had a lot of repeat clients but the ones that wanted review articles came back over and over again, often times offering to pay more if I would move them up higher than my other clients.

Product Creation Experts – Interview With Ruth Pound

A lot of you are full swing in creating your new products so I decided it was time to bring you another product creation experts interview!

Today’s interview is with Ruth Pound of Net PLR and Content Shortcuts. She’s been a very fun blogger to follow because she spent quite a bit of time traveling while also working online (which I know a lot of you hope to do one day). Her products at this time are about selling PLR and ghostwriting, which have been my methods of choice for earning money from home.

How to Get Hired as a Writer on oDesk Part 2 – More Mistakes to Avoid

I planned to write about things to do that may increase your chances of getting hired, but after going through another round of writer’s applications over on oDesk, I want to cover some more mistakes I’m seeing made and what you can do to fix them.

Why Aren’t Clients Hiring Me to Write on oDesk? – A Client’s Perspective Part 1

If you find yourself asking this question, I want to help you. Not only did I used to be a writer on sites like oDesk, but I do a lot of outsourcing there now. Generally I find people to do graphics programming, but I have been heading there more and more for writing.

I’m going to share some of the biggest mistakes people make when sending in applications for my job postings.

Just as an example, I posted up a listing a few days ago and got about 30 applicants the first day. I denied all but five because of issues I had with their cover letters. Out of those five, I ended up hiring two that seem promising.

How Small Jobs can Earn you BIG Money – Guest Post

Today I bring you a guest post about micro jobs!

When starting up a new business or money-making scheme, it’s all very well to start picturing yourself earning millions, but unless we are willing to put in a great deal of work, most of us won’t get there. Of course, there are a few people out there who just “get lucky”, but the majority of us will spend most of our lives trying to reach our goals. It doesn’t all have to be an uphill struggle though; small steps and small jobs can ultimately amount to something worth the wait.
