Double Your Income by Adding a
Social Media Tab to Your Site
If you already work as a freelance writer or copywriter – or plan to do so soon – social media makes for a perfect addition to your lineup of services.
It doesn’t matter whether your focus right now is on copywriting or content writing … or both.
The idea is simply to add a new navigation tab to your website, with the title “Social Media.”
Let me give you some reasons why the addition of that social media services tab on your site makes perfect sense right now:
- EVERY company online needs to be active in social media, and about 50% of them turn to outside experts for help.
- Clients like it when they can get everything done by one freelancer. It’s inconvenient for them to use you as a writer and copywriter and then have to find someone else to do their social media. They want one-stop shopping.
- Social media and online content are quickly becoming inseparable. I predict in a few years we’ll no longer talk about writing online and social media as separate entities … we’ll just talk about the “social web” and “social web writers.”
- Adding social media as a new service can give you a huge increase in your income. Every time you write copy or content for a client, ask them if they’d like you to also handle the corresponding social media. And vice versa.
In a nutshell, the growth in social media marketing activity out there presents a huge opportunity to freelancers. But the greatest opportunity of all is for freelance writers and copywriters.
Why? Because quality writing is the missing element in most social media activity.
It’s a very small leap to take from being a writer or copywriter to becoming a social media writer or consultant.
Make that leap now and you can look forward to a considerable increase in both the number of companies who want to work with you, and the income you’ll make this year.
To be honest, it’s a no-brainer.
If I were building a new online writing or copywriting business right now, I would be all over social media.
Big breaks or opportunities like this come along maybe once a decade. I would be grabbing the opportunity with both hands right now, and I think you should too.
That’s it for today’s article.
