  2. 2. Why freelance writers should be using social media to build awareness<br />10 Reasons<br />
  3. 3. Your website has no value whatsoever if no one knows about it.  Whether you have a blog or a simple site that displays the services you offer and some samples, you need to be found for it to have value.<br />1. Promote Your Website<br />
  4. 4. Potential clients will Google you and if they find nothing they will assume that you are new and inexperienced.<br />2. Establish a Web Presence<br />
  5. 5. Whether you are writing articles for back links or for residual income, they are worthless if no one is reading them.<br />3. Promote Your Articles<br />
  6. 6. Who do people buy from?  Usually, they buy from brands they are familiar with.  So, whether you are using a business name or your given name as your brand, increase awareness of it.<br />4. Build a Brand<br />
  7. 7. Free reports can show off your skill as a writer and your knowledge of a specific niche.  You can also give potential clients a prime example of a product that they also can use to promote their business.  Give people the permission to share your free reports.<br />5. Give Away Free Reports<br />
  8. 8. By being professional, respectful, and mature you can display a major characteristic that clients look for.<br />6. Demonstrate Your Strong Ethics<br />
  9. 9. There are several ways that you can share your resume such as a page on your site, your LinkedIn profile, or one of the many resume building websites that are available.<br />7. Share Your Resume<br />
  10. 10. People feel closer when there is a face that they can identify.  They like to know that there is someone behind the brand and they are more likely to feel they can trust you.<br />8. Let People Attach a Face to Your Brand<br />
  11. 11. When others have good things to say it validates what you have been saying all along.  People are much more likely to believe what someone says about you than what you say about you.<br />9. Share What Others Say About You<br />
  12. 12. When people have writing work you don’t want them to think, “How am I going to find a writer?”  You want them to think of you because they already know you are a writer and they believe that they can trust you.<br />10. Stay in the Forefront of People’s Minds<br />
