When you reference another website’s content, make sure you hyperlink back to that site. It’s good internet etiquette, and you’d want the same courtesy. Always cite your sources, even if you’re afraid it’ll send your web traffic to another site — and you can always choose the “open link in another window” option if you’re that concerned about keeping your traffic.
What I won't do: * execute a bad idea – if I see something is flawed in your plan, I will tell you and will help you adjust * write for the pharma / credit companies (fin-tech & medical professionals are welcome!) * respond to mass mailings (it would be nice to include my name in your message) * be available at the drop of a hat (my schedule is usually packed so please don't expect an immediate answer) What I will do: * I'll do the dirty in-depth research for you until I know your niche & your business better than you do * I'll help you get your idea off the ground, out of the bloody ocean and into the clear open waters of your perfect niche * I'll pave the way for you to enter the German market (and get you into international business if you're a German company) * I'll consult you from start to finish, incl. revisions (as long as you're willing to test out what I've written and don't act on a "hunch") * I prefer to start a copy consulting relationship with a short strategy call to get to know your business * * * If you want to get your business up-and-running for the German market (and exponentially grow your revenue this way) you need a native speaker with experience in marketing to connect you to your customers. * * * "Max has been very proactive, enthusiastic and responsive. He finished the work ahead of schedule [...] We'll surely use his service again! Thank you." (5* Rating) "Extremely proactive. Delivered ahead of schedule." (5* Rating) * * * Proactive. On point. Reliable. As a German native speaker and state-certified translator/interpreter (for English) and copywriter (for German and English) I have worked on numerous health, business and online-marketing projects (which have grossed in the high six-figures).
There is also the option to spin capitalized words (assumed to be proper nouns) as well as leave any number of words unchanged, depending on whatever you enter into the "ignore" field, separated by commas. You also have the option to only keep the sentences that were altered a minimum percentage, as indicated by the "Keep Sentences that Changed" option.
That’s great you want to start freelance writing! I hope your husband is on board with this 🙂 As for your blog topic, remember that your personal niche is different than your freelance writing niche. I blog over at TwinsMommy.com and that’s my passion and personal niche. I talk about being a work at home mom, working at home, having twins and making money blogging. But this blog is geared towards writers. For you though, you can pick your paying niche (freelance writing niche) and pick a personal niche (this can be a lifestyle niche where you blog about several topics). So let’s say you pick the pet industry as your paying niche, then your writer website would reflect copy for a Pet Writer for hire. Then you can have your lifestyle blog if you want and blog about pet life, motorcycles, personal growth etc.. Make sense? You can also have a writer website that’s all about pet writing, have a portfolio with pet writing and then link to your lifestyle blog. This is what I do for my writer website. I link to THIS blog on my writer website even though it has nothing to do with my niche (digital marketing). Make sense?
