Authors love writing. Promotion, not so much. If the idea of book marketing makes you cringe, relax. Here’s a vital tip. Promote your way; a way that’s fun for you. If you don’t make it fun, you’ll avoid it, which is a tragedy for your books, because they won’t get the exposure that they deserve. […]

Freelance writers and editors often come with a wide range of skills, but a lot of potential clients aren’t sure if they need a freelancer, and what freelance writers, editors and social media managers can do for them. How do you hire and most effectively use a freelancer?


Hiring A Freelance Writer, Editor, And Social Media Manager


Freelancers offer their clients a cost-effective way to generate or edit content, manage writing teams, edit books and online content for publication, post and maintain social media accounts, and even create digital content in the form of videos and podcasts.


The most effective way to begin a search for a freelancer is to determine what your overall budget is for the project you want. Are you a theatre director looking for someone to promote your upcoming shows via Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram?


You’ll need to decide how much labor you want to invest each day of the campaign, how much that labor should cost, and what your benchmarks will be for effectiveness of the campaign.

Bands, Indie Businesses, and Sole Prorpietorships Need Freelancers


Are you a band looking for a freelancer to do the same with social media and posts on your band’s official site? The same rules apply-you need to determine your budget in advance and commit to a certain amount of work for a certain amount of pay.


If you have an independent business to promote, the same exact rules apply but with the added consideration that you are engaging in a longer campaign to generate business and attention to your website.


Promoting an indie business takes time and results are not always available overnight. You will need to discuss your goals with your freelancer to determine the best course of action.


Some types of business are better suited for some types of freelance writing and social media work than others. If you have a product your customers will purchase or use one time only or on a limited basis, the needs of your freelance campaign will be quite different than a company such as a record store that relies on social media and their website to generate repeat business.


Corporate And Local Businesses Need Freelancers


Many big name companies including PetSmart, Lionel, Inc., Motorola, and Banco Popular hire freelancers and temp workers, consult with freelancers for advice on expanding local social media campaigns, and use freelance writers and editors to begin new projects they may choose to take internally later on.


Corporate and local businesses alike can benefit from the flexibility of having a freelance/contract writer and editor working for them because the freelancer is dedicated specifically to that project and won’t have to attend other company meetings or be sidetracked by additional duties or other projects at that company.


That is not to say that freelancers work for one client exclusively-that is an arrangement that is definitely possible but requires some additional negotiation and compensation discussions. But in general the advantage of the freelancer is that she doesn’t get sidetracked by the other issues and projects of the company hiring her. Her job is to focus on the writing, editing, and/or social media project assigned.

What Do Freelance Writers, Editors, And Social Media Managers Do?


Freelancers write web content, articles, press releases, social media posts, and curate relevant posts from other tastemaker websites while writing original content to go along with that curated media.


Freelance editors edit book projects (especially biographies and works that are intended to be self-published), web content, manage teams of writers, and check over any volume of written content for errors, grammatical goofs, auto-correct problems (and there are many of those!) and much more.


Freelance social media managers write, edit, promote, and network on social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, and more. The best social media managers understand how to strike a balance between self-serving posts that promote the client and content that is shared as a way of generating and maintaining interest in discussions, sharing, and reposting.

Last week, I was forced to take an impromptu vacation. With Hurricane Florence barreling toward the east coast of the United States, I was persuaded to flee north by a combination of The Weather Channel, scaremongering Facebook posts, and calls from my parents.

ng with video content.



1.Create a narrative video



A narrative video is a great way to explain what your business offers or what features your product or website might have. Today there are many online tools that allow you to create such a video even if you don’t have any technical skills. For example, on lumen5 you will be able to create a video by choosing background images and by inserting text and music with a drag and drop functionality.



2. Create a how-to video



People love to learn new things, and that’s why how to and tutorial videos are so popular. The simplest way to create a how-to video is to record your computer screen as you explain how to accomplish a specific task. You can also use your smartphone to record yourself while you carry out the task you are explaining. Here’s how to speed up a normal video to a time-lapse in case you need to shrink the overall length of your how-to video (remember that people have short attention spans online).



3. Do an interview



Remember that everything is digital these days, so you can do an interview with anyone around the world without leaving your house. Skype and Google hangout offer free video calling that it can use to conduct your interviews. You just need to record the video as you go and then publish it on your website. As an added bonus, the interviewee might help to promote the interview, for instance by sharing it on his social media profiles.



4. Embed videos from YouTube



Having video content on your website is a must, but that does not mean that you need to create all the content yourself. One strategy you can use to make your content more engaging is to find related and relevant videos on YouTube and then embed those videos on your website articles. This will give more value to your visitors, which in turn should make them return and increase your search rankings on Google.



5. Share your story or opinion



If you are lacking ideas for videos, you can simply turn the comer of your smart phone on and start recording as you talk. People love to hear a good story or someone who has a strong opinion about something.
