It has been a really busy few months! It's time to slow down just a tad and freshen up the look of the site. If this is a return trip for you, I hope you enjoy the new design!
The holidays are gearing up. For businesses, it is time to start enticing in the holiday sales. It is also time for gift gathering, event planning, family gatherings, and exchanges. It can be a very overwhelming time of year!
Freelancers are excellent resources for this time of year. Here are a few ideas:
These are just a few ideas to help you along for the holidays. A freelancer can make the holidays easier for a business or for family holiday planning. I will post more in the coming weeks. So be sure to bookmark the page and check back regularly.
I am also here to help you with all your writing needs. And by this weekend, Ii will also be introducing a new member of the Nis Freelance team, freelance artist Christopher Nis. He will be offering services in children's illustrations! You can get a peek at his work and commission his services now on the Fiverr tab above.
It has been a little while since I posted! I just got settled in from a move to sunny Scottsdale, Arizona. It's a great little city full of culture, events, tourism, and professionals. I could not be happier!
I'll be posting helpful hints and reviews over the next few weeks, and I have attached my People Per Hour profile to the tabs above. If you are nervous about establishing a new relationship with an author, this is a great method. Our conversations will be recorded, I will be accountable to the admins for providing high quality and customer service, and the payment will be held in escrow. I won't be paid by the site until you are 100% satisfied!
I am also doing a major revamp of my fee schedule and services. You can find the details under the "Services" tab.
A buzz piece is simply a publication that will draw interest from possible buyers or clients from your target audience. It can be a worksheet, a template, a poster download, or even an e-book.
The buzz piece is designed to show that you are an expert. A good buzz piece generates traffic and interaction with your site as well. Here are a few ideas on how you can use an effective buzz piece in your marketing campaign:
1. Landing Page Promotion: A landing page with a free download in exchange for their contact info. A few days later you contact them to thank them for downloading the book and ask if they have any questions. Or it can begin a subscription into an email newsletter.
2. Cold calls: Instead of advertising your product or service, offer to send them a free copy of your new publication. Gather contact info from the yes's, and followup a few days later to see if they have questions.
3. An email drip campaign: This tactic incorporates what every major brand does: It keeps reminding the prospect that you are there. these would be pieces that relate to the target audience. Followed by a reminder that you are there to answer questions. An automatic email drip campaign can be made easily to schedule the emails.
4. Kindle: it may be strange to offer a free book on kindle, but is there to lose when there is no monthly fee? You reach out to their huge customer base with no extra effort at all. Plus the freebie is a great funnel to upsell your paid publications on there as well.
