Welp, I’ve been bitten by the review bug! I am in the process of reviewing different tools that I have used throughout the years. It started with the CoSchedule Review I wrote months ago, and I’m picking where I left off with my latest review of RankWatch.

For the next few months, I will be reviewing tools like Long Tail ProSocial LockerNinja Popups, and others. The point of these reviews is to help you determine which tools you need to use to build a successful blog.

If you have suggestions of tools for me to try out and review, please send them by filling out the form on my contact page.

gaurav-kumar“Long form content typically performs better, be it on social media sites or increasing your Google rankings. However, make sure you don’t just ramble on in order to increase the word count of your article. Instead, try and provide some solutions to your readers through your content so that they eagerly wait for the next one!” – Gaurav Kumar

kelly-exeterNot sure what your endgame is? Focus on a shorter-term goal instead. The same principle applies. The antidote for any feeling of overwhelm is prioritisation. So, look at your to-do list, zero in on what you know will take you closer to your goal, and ditch the rest—at least for now.” – Kelly Exeter

Freelance Writing

In this post at About Freelance Writing, Anne Wayman will introduce you to the kinds of freelance writing jobs you might take. If you’re not careful, you may agree to a gig that turns out badly, or if you’re not familiar with the various kinds of freelance writing jobs available, you are likely to miss something that you’d love and pays well.

When you decided to be a freelance writer, you also get to choose the niche you will be targeting to get gigs and clients. Arriving at a decision to become a freelance writer is not easy, but finding a niche where you’ll devote your whole life is even harder. In this post at Skyword, read the tips in the search for the freelance writing niche of your dreams.

Being a freelance writer doesn’t end from knowing how to write, this job continues from building your client base to sustaining them.  In this compelling post by Bethany Johnson at Skyword, she shares how she started with almost nothing to being the primary persona of her brand. At first, it is not how many clients you have and how big the pay is, but it is about building the trust and creating a powerful portfolio.

erin-olila“If you’re just starting out as a freelance writer, or even if you’ve built a strong portfolio but are hearing this advice for the first time, the idea of choosing a niche might stress you out. For some, it might feel like hamstringing your potential. But the fact is, if you approach niche-building as a process that happens over time, you’ll come to find that it’s a strength, not a weakness. I’m not here to help find a way for you to skirt the issue of finding a niche. I’m here to remind you not to rush into finding one.”  Erin Ollila
