Blogging for Others
– The Freelancer –
What You need – How to start


When it comes down to the main work, to learn how to earn money by blogging as a freelancer, you will have certain daily tasks you have to fulfill and you will need to have certain skills.

The first and most important skill you need to develop, is a good ‘art of writing’. Your potential customers must like the way you express yourself and their subjects  – through your writing. The myth that you are either a good or a bad writer still continues to be told. The good news – this is not true. Everyone can improve the quality of their writing.

Facts for Your Clients


First –
How to Improve the Quality of your Writing


  1. Do it on a regular, daily basis – Make Writing a Habit – We do not mean to write one or two articles with about 500 words each. Let wrtiting become your second nature by doing it more frequently. Do it daily when you can and write longer articles. You will – Improve through Praktice!
  2. Proofread every article before publishing or sending to a client! – Always read over the article thoroughly and correct any mistakes that you made. If you found mistakes, proofread the whole article again, and if you find any more errors, correct them and proofread again. This will ensure, that the quality of the content you publish or send out remains high. As it is a kind of ‘business card’ or show-piece for future clients you want to make sure that – You publish Quality content!

  3. Be a regular Reader! – It should be no surprise to you that a lot of the good writers are passionate readers. You can learn a lot about your craft by reading regularly. Just try to figure out how, why and with what intention other writer or blogger craft their articles or books.  Read books about subjects you are passionate about. Connect with other bloggers or subscribe to their blogs and newsletters. You will improve your writing and ad new words to your vocabulary. Both will help you to get to know how to earn money by blogging in your future.
  4. Remove the filler in your writing – Longer articles are not better. There is no point saying something in one thousand words if it can be said in one hundred. Always try to be concise and get straight to the point. Removing words, paragraphs  or pages from something you have written during your proofreading can boost the quality of your article.  Someone said – ‘if their is nothing left, you can remove – without worsening the meaning of your article – the length is perfect!’.  This will make your writing easier to read for your clients and customers.
  5. Good habbits to provide Quality content –
    Thorough Research and Making Notes! – Will lead you to better quality content and to stronger arguments in your articles. By taking notes on your computer, your phone or tablet, wherever you are of good ideas you have for an article you make sure
    Take Notes – Taking notes is an essential part of blogging. Get into the habit of taking notes every day through your phone, tablet or computer makes sure, that good ideas are never lost. So whenever you think on writing new content – you can go through your notes, pick one and start.

Already have great writing skills? – Awesome, then this part can be checked. If not , this  means not you can´t become a good blogger – it just means you have more work to do!  Perhaps your own strength is ‘telling an engaging story’ with your posts. This can be something, which gives you the ability to earn more money by blogging – as it is a highly paid skill, it even can compensate if you have not improved your writing skills yet.

So one of your first goals will be => to develop your writing skills – on a daily basis.

 

Second – Find Blogging-Jobs – How to Earn Money by Blogging –


Even the best writer will not earn any money, if he can´t find potential Clients.  To get things started, we can recommend these websites, specialized in jobs for blogger and freelancer.

jobs.problogger.net – a platform like a bulletin board specialized in companies searching for blogger. As the componies advertising their job opportunities, only stay on this page for 30 days, the list of offered jobs always stays fresh and clean. We got good customers feedback from bloggers who tried this site.

How to Earn Money by Blogging Facts for Clients
Arguments for Your Clients

indeed.com – a classic job market. Type in Blogger (in ‘What?’) and your Location (‘Where?’) and you will be able to find some possibilities. Of course earning money by blogging would not need the ‘where’ field, but some companies, giving away a higher salary want to see their new blogging specialist (you) at least once – so it can help if you find a local company.

upwork.com – an awesome place for freelancer and blogger  – and their potential clients. From writing blog posts to whole book series here you will find people offering and searching for nearly anything related to writing. If you subscribe on upwork it is good to have a well written portfolio you can present to your future clients. Competition is quite high, but I know several freelancer personally, who found really good writing jobs and in some cases even exclusive contracts lasting for years

 

Third – Build an Online Reputation – Utilizing Social Media


Another powerful way to find clients – is to get into Social Media. Even if you do not have decided to build your own business online, I want to strongly encourage you to get on the Social Media Platforms.

Why and How – Social Media – Having a private Facebook-page is NOT enough though. To tell the truth – it can be the opposite because, showing pictures fully drunk at a party last weekend, half naked and a beer in one hand – will not always open new business doors for you.

How to Earn Money by Blogging - Social Media ServicesLinkedIn Account – is a basic platform I encourage you to use – but do not over complicate the setup. A good picture and a brief description of the service you offer is enough. LindedIn is more a kind of referral and get found page – for your business.

TIP: Set up a Facebook-Page for your business – Make related posts about blogging or articles you have written so you can send your clients to your (THIS) page – branding yourself and your work. You even will get likes or shares of other people – perhaps potential future customers. Have something like ‘Blog, Blogger, Writing Articles, Freelancer’ in you page-title and in your about page. You even can ask clients you worked with to Like your page or write a frew lines as a future reference – this can be very powerful in building trust.

How to create a Facebook Page – Just go to your existing Facebook account. Click at the top right corner of your page on the little down arrow. Then click on ‘Create Page’ and simply follow the steps. If you want detailed tips and insight how to setup your side best, for even ranking your page in google search and get found on Facebook, just go to our ‘How to Guide – Social Media Excellence 2015/2016’.

Twitter Account – search for companies that fit your business and probably need your service. Publisher, Social Media Marketer, Online Businesses and companies that push out a lot of new content every day – like the verge, or mashable. They often need good written articles for their sites – and sometimes offer jobs on a regular basis.

Pinterest – a powerful possibility to publish a few of your articles. Other than Facebook or twitter, Pinterest offers you a more convenient way of getting connected. No permanent comments and daily posts – just make a pin, when you find something interesting.

Fifth – Make a Plan – and Stick to It


Success – does not come over night – but it comes over time! Do your tasks on a daily basis and get better and connected to more people that matter in your niche. Make a real plan. Not only write down your goals – write down a plan with concrete daily tasks. Even bring your daily tasks in an order of importance and define the daily spaces of time you will spend on every task. This will help you, not to loose yourself within social media or research.

Example: a typical Monday:
Sport (for one hour)
=> breakfast with my family (one of the benefits of working from home)
=> Writing an article for 2-3 hours – break (coffee with your partner for exchange)
=> Social Media Marketing: connecting with people – Posting my latest articles – answering question 2 hours
at the end phone calls with clients
=> lunch with my family
=> Research for my next articles 2-3 hours (getting pictures and footage)
=> Writing and publishing my article (connecting to my clients) (3-5 hours)

  1. Hi this is an interesting article, it shows well what you need to blog, of course I find this difficult to do as English is only my second language. As you mentioned you have to create your space and make it an habit to work on every day if you can.
    I have a steady work that stops me to work full time on line, so I am not sure that I can do this but you convince me to give it a try, as I need a part time job to make it monthly. Thanks

  2. Hi Greg!

    Terrific little “how to” piece! You really did a well thought out job of presenting some very relevant information, with a nice writing style. I have been blogging for several months as one of several online activities and find that I enjoy the writing a lot.

    I haven’t yet looked through all of your “tools” yet, but I definitely will. Currently, as someone who is new to social media, I am focused on Google+ and I find that keeps me quite busy just growing that network.

    However, eventually, I would like to have something serious going in Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest, as well, so your media offerings do interest me, but it is a little soon for some of the pricier offers, although I am sure they are worth the money.

    What would be your recommendation for new bloggers who are probably not yet earning from their blogs, as far as your tools are concerned?

    Thanks!

    1. Hello Chris,

      I know your situation! It sometimes is hard to stay patient and being persistent creating new, valuable and engaging content, when you do not yet see results. But believe me the results will follow.

      Google+ is an awesome community platform and great opportunity for your social media strategy. The big pro on Google+ are the different communities you can utilize to spread word about your services or product to a specific audience. But: If you want your content to go more viral and be re-shared by many people you will find, that you might gain a lot of 1+`s but the “Share-Rate” is actual quite low on this platform. One of the main reasons is explained in our article about How to increase Your Website Traffic from Twitter.

      We tested a lot for many of our clients and the two Big Ships Facebook & Twitter still bring home the most and easiest traffic.

      Of course you are totally true when you claim that Social Media Strategies, no matter which platforms you choose, are so time consuming. Especially if you really want to get huge traffic to your Website you have to post valuable, niche (audience) specific, engaging new content on a regular (best daily) basis to grow your followers/customers and earn money.

      Seeing this a lot of our clients can´t believe how we deliver our Social Media Services with such low cost. We do the research for you, we create 100% unique, valuable content customized for your niche and post daily on Twitter and Facebook for You. 365 Days a year.

      If you use the time you save by eliminating Social Media from your To-Do-List, to create more valuable content for your site; you will easily earn multiple the cost of our service in a very short period of time – growing.

      You asked me for a recommendation for new bloggers who are not yet earning a lot from their blog. You inspired us to give value as we get asked this quite often – therefore we will release a new blog-post in the next days with exact these recommendations.

      Hope this will have the best possible impact for you Chris – and for all other bloggers out there seeking for success and a way to earn money from home.

      All the best,
      Greg
