Weekly Newsletter for Freelancers

What is our primary motive of having a website? Sharing information to the audience and sometimes making some sales, isn’t it?

But, how can it possible, if you don’t have targeted organic traffic to your site? The main reason of not having traffics is either you follow a poor SEO or your competitors adopted more effective SEO strategies.

So, for both reasons you have to improve your brand’s SEO to ensure the targeted income from your web business.

Here is an article by Nathan Meunier that was published on the Upwork Blog. It is well worth the read because it will help improve your income.

Motivate Yourself!

Are you worried about your writing? Are your articles not getting enough shares in social media, though your topic is very interesting?

Okay, it is time for a new perspective. Get inspired in your writing and enhance your freelancing career with this simple trick.

Did you know, people like and share image quotes a lot? When they see an image quote they are more likely to share it in their Facebook or Twitter profile or Pinterest board. So, you absolutely should add quotes in your articles. They should be in image format!

Luckily, you don’t need to know photoshop for this. There are many tools to make it easier for you. I’m going to share an article with you that will explain more fully where you’ll get more details about the importance of using quotes and how to create image quotes easily. You’ll find it here.

Productivity Tip Of The Week

What is your plan to recover your losses if you have a period of sickness when you can't work or when it is a slow month with low income? In one of my recent newsletters I’ve advised you to create an emergency fund to even out your cash flow. Creating digital info products is another great idea that I’m sharing with you today.

Creating something informative, problem solving or helpful, (i.e. An eBook, application or a video tutorial on your freelancing services) for your audience or potential customers. This is a product or service that you can share at a premium price. This is the main reason for creating digital info products.

If you read the article written by Michelle Nickolaisen for SitePoint you will know how to create an info product to sell it. Check it by clicking here.

Work-Life Balance Tip Of The Week

As we always say “Health is Wealth”, but, we often forget this when we are too busy with our work. Even, after getting a notification alert regarding the expiration of your health insurance, there are people who find the notification irrelevant to their work!

Successful freelancers are seldom not busy with tasks for their clients. They are always under pressure. Are you one of those busy people I’m talking about who don’t get time to take care of their health? I’ve read an article on Huffington Post, where the writer has shared what happened with him after neglecting a minor health issue.

I wanted to share the article with you so that you too will understand why should you prioritize your health in work life balance even though you think you’re too busy. Your health matters, it is our most valuable asset. You’ll find the article here.

Financial Tip Of The Week

Are you an ageing freelancer? Have you planned ahead for your health insurance on your retirement.

In America, for many years, people didn’t dare to take retirement before they reached 65. This was because the cost of early retirement health insurance was very high. Now a days, it’s much more affordable than the past. However, it differs from country to country and you need to have a good understanding of your personal health insurance situation when you retire.

But, there are many options to consider in all the steps in choosing a health insurance. Such as, what to consider for early retirement and retirement after 65, how to choose a cost effective plan, who can help you locally, where you’ll get information etc.

There is a guideline I have found while researching this subject. Dana Anspach has written an article for The Balance on this topic, check this article. I think the article will help you making the right decision for your health insurance.
