How to Get Paid from International Clients

Working as a content copywriter in Spanish I am experienced receiving money from international clients, and it is always important to know the best ways to do and receive a cheap money transfer.

When you give a budget or price to your clients, it is important to take into consideration the fees you will need to pay because of currency exchange and the money transfer service. Clients expect to have a final price, and they do not want to see how the price increase a 5 or 10 % or even more, due to the money transfer. So if when you give your budget you give the final price including all the costs and explaining them you will seem more trustful.

Since I am based in Spain, international clients from European Union are not a problem. They work in euros and bank transfers are cheap and most of the times free. But when it comes to clients from USA, India and other countries things are much more difficult.

PayPal is usually the best-known tool among the ways to send money. Problem is it’s fees are not very transparent when you work with different currencies. They sometimes charge slightly more than 3 % and sometimes the micropayment fee that is a 5 %.

Since you don’t want to overcomplicate things when you are talking with a new client, having a PayPal account is a must because it is likely what they are used to use.

However, when your payments are above 200 € there are much more efficient ways to send money.

Nowadays there are websites that allow you to receive local bank transfers in many different currencies.

To avoid PayPal’s fee you need a way to do money transfer to a bank account with cheaper costs. I have found TransferWise

If your country’s currency is for instance euros, it allows you to set up a bank account number that works in dollars.  In other words, you can create your USD account and give them the bank account number, so they will just need to proceed as they do when paying people with a bank account in the US. This way, your American client’s can send you money paying the costs they would have had if they were making a bank transfer to someone else in the US. These costs are usually much lower than international bank transfer costs, besides they are more used to them so they won’t be a bad surprise.

They don’t even need to create a TranferWise account!

If you have the account, that’s enough.

Once you have received your money in USD you can change the currency to EUR or whatever currency you use (well check in TransferWise if they work with your currency, but they work with a lot of them). This has a cost, but when you receive money in PayPal there is also a currency exchange fee paid by you or your client, so in this case both ways to send money are equal.

Having an account in TransferWise you can also send international bank transfers much cheaper than usually. So it is also very helpful if you hire foreign freelancers.

Ther are other services like Skrill or Payoneer, but I personally find that PayPal and TransferWise satisfy all my needs.

3 places to check for SERP

First of all, many of you might not be familiar with the term SERP and its implications. For this reason, it is important to first explain a bit what it means, and why it is important for your blog, and only then talk about some of the best sites where you can check for it. Let’s get started.

SERP is an acronym for Search Engline Results Pages. They are used by people when they want to look for something online using a search engine, like Google. You simply enter a keyword and the search engine provides you with a SERP.

It is not this simple though, because SERPs are different one from the other, even if you search for the same keyword on the same search engine. The main reason why this happens is because basically all search engines make the experience of using them unique by adapting to their users. The keyword is not the only factor, but the person’s location and browsing history are also taken into account.

Basically, if you want to see how well your latest post on your blog is ranking, then you should definitely check out for SERP on one of these websites. Let’s take a look at some of the best sites out there.

  1. SEMrush

On SEMrush you simply put your website URL or an URL of a blog post and this site will tell you which keywords you rank for. In addition, you can click on any of these keywords in order to see the keyword competition. It works for both Google and Bing. You can get a free 14-day trail of SEMrush, but you will need to register in order to use the software.

  1. Google Rank Checker

If you do not want to spend money on a SERP online checker, then you should definitely give Google Rank Checker a go. It is a great online keyword rank checker which is also free. All that you need to do is to include the domain name along with the keyword. Then you will get the position of that keyword in Google. It is quite simple.

  1. SEOCentro

SEOCentro is an excellent tool for checking keyword ranking. The best thing about this website is the fact that it allows you to check out the performance of specific keywords in more than one search engines. Among these engines we can count: Google, Yahoo, and Bing, but not only. It does not require you to create an account, but it is recommendable that you do so.

Now that you know where to check out your SERP, you can increase the performance of your personal blog. It is truly one great tool that you should take into account. After all, you do really want to get visitors on your site. This is an excellent way to find out how your site is performing. You should definitely keep this in mind when you write your next post.

Creating a Freelance Portfolio

A good way to attract clients for freelancing is to create an online portfolio. This is relatively easy to do, even if you are new to freelancing. A good way to do this is through a website of your own. The website should look professional and modern, so if you are unfamiliar with website building then consider hiring someone to create one for you, or alternatively use one of the many easy-to-use website-building tools available these days.

What Should the Portfolio Include?

The website should not only showcase your talent and give examples of what work you can do, but it should also provide an easy way for clients to contact you. Furthermore, a portfolio should include a brief description of yourself so that the client can get to know you a little better before asking you to work with them. This can make things a little more personal, and makes you instantly more trustworthy.

Something that a lot of freelancers miss out on is explaining their work. Many people decide it’s better to show their work rather than say much about it, but taking the opportunity to explain the project and what you actually did may help to swing some clients in your favor.

Showcasing Talent

The portfolio should put on display your best work. This means that you should include a variety of pieces in your portfolio to show off the various things you can do. Include a range of topics, a variety of writing techniques and try to include pieces that use different layouts. This will attract a wider variety of clients and thus more work.

Another thing to note is that you can include unfinished works or snippets from pieces. As long as the excerpt shows off your writing skills, it is a valuable thing to include in your portfolio.

In addition, try showing off any results you have achieved. If you have been involved in social media management and content creation for sites that show number of likes and shares, screenshot the results and post these somewhere on your portfolio. These make for a very attractive strategy that will draw in more clients.

What if You Don’t Have Much to Showcase?

New freelancers can still create a decent portfolio. How?

Well, you could start by creating pieces for imaginary clients. Write a few example posts of your own, on any topics you fancy, and post them up as an example of your writing. Another way to rack up some new content is to guest post on other blogs, and use these writings as proof of your talent. Alternatively, you could do some unpaid work just to get your feet off the ground, although the first two options may be much more appealing.

Keep in mind that these new posts should still be explained in your portfolio, so your potential clients can see exactly what you did.

Final Tips

It is important to always keep your portfolio updated – it should grow with you. As your career flourishes, your portfolio should expand too. Building a portfolio is definitely worth it for freelances wanting to turn over more work and attract new clients. Try getting started now!

How best to use Feedly

Feedly is a relatively new application for web browsers and iOS and Android mobile devices and also as a cloud based service. Through gathering feeds form many online sources, it enables users to customize and share with others. Feedly is a powerful tool that helps you organize, read and share contents of different sites.

Feedly offers a number of convenient features. It is particularly useful for bloggers, content and copy writers as it enables arranging favourite blogs, news sites, podcasts and Youtube channels with the possibility of accessing them easily by keyboard shortcuts. Moreover, it allows transformating websites into smaller cards and save articles and share them via   Twitter, Facebook, Google+ or Pinterest.

Helpful hints for using Feedly

Follow the link https://feedly.com/i/welcome and move to the left side bar where a new tab appears with the `Get started` option. By clicking this button you will be able to create an account through any of the given social networks. Whichever you chose you need to provide your personal information to log in, username and password after which you are directed to Feedy page.

You can start by adding favourite sources by clicking `+` on the left upper corner. If you subscribe to a lot of sources you can put them into categories. Feedly allows the `today` and `saved for later` button to sort the items according to your interest. You can also mark as `read` any of the current items. The `saved for later` feeds enables `change layout and filtering` by clicking the  sun icon on the right near the `search` tab.  Here you can assign the right layout to each source, like different views to different sources. Learn about the keyboard shortcuts if you want to navigate around the content. Just type `?` in Feedly to see the list of the keyboard shortlist. This option may not be available depending on the operating system on your computer. Additionally, sharing contents and participating is possible in cases you want to recommend something you find interesting. If you have accounts on Facebook, Twitter or a personal webpage you can use the built- in sharing features to communicate more effectively with other users or clients.

Feedly is particularly useful if you blog and want to optimize your feeds.  In Word Press, for example, you can do optimization in dashboard-settings-reading and change the feed option to a bigger number. Make sure you use short pieces of a whole article so that users who find them appealing they will click through to your site to read the rest. Image, size and author`s name are important features when it comes to how your feed displays in Feedly. Visuality is important, as well as using a nickname instead of your Word press username. As soon as you have adopted the basics of Feedly, start tagging your content to get more traffic to your website. Don`t forget to add quality comments on articles you have read. This may be a great way to get referrals as your comment may lead the reader to click your link. Detailed and coherent comments are the best to provide desired links.

Feedly may be one of the best options for your online business strategy for many reasons. Some of the most beneficial features are the quick access to information and easy customization without manually searching the Internet. Though, the best part is that it is free.

The ins and outs of Guest Blogging

For a while, bloggers and writers alike stopped using the practice of guest posting. The technique picked up an infamous reputation, because it became abused by spammers and click-bait writers. But guest posting is back and better than ever, and is actually a very useful technique for those wanting to boost their ratings and appear higher up in the search engines.

What is Guest Posting?

One of the things search engines take into account nowadays when ranking sites is the links that direct traffic to the site. This is similar to academic papers, in that a paper references by many other scholars is usually considered a better paper, because it has made more of an impact on the community.

Here’s how it works: a blogger will offer to write content for other similar blogs in their industry, as a guest blogger. In return, the blog posts a link to their own blog, providing them with an opportunity to promote their own brand.

The aims of guest blogging are threefold. Generally, bloggers want to build up their reputation as a well-known name in the industry, direct traffic to their site, and build a network of backlinks to their blog.

Using Guest Posting to Build a Rep

There are several guidelines to follow when using guest blogging in order to achieve the maximum result. These will be explored below.

First of all, the link should always be of some value. When writing a guest post, it should always still be of valuable content. Some people abuse the guest posting system by writing very short, vague posts, or even those that could be considered spam. Clearly, these posts were written with the sole purpose of getting a link, and add nothing of value to the community whatsoever. Any links included on the site should definitely be high-quality and worth clicking for the readers – this is the most effective way to optimize search engine results.

Any links included in your blog posts should also be completely relevant to the content being published. The reader should be able to gain more by clicking on the link. So, the links should not only lead to high-quality work, but also pieces that will further what they are reading and give them a good reading experience.

Another thing to bear in mind is that you should only write guest posts on a site you’d be willing to write for without anything in return. Links should not be a primary marketing strategy, nor should they be your sole goal in writing guest posts. A few years ago, the crash of guest posting came about due to this very thing: many bloggers saw their demise thanks to a link-hungry attitude that encouraged them to make too many guest posts. Quite obviously, their content began to suffer because of it. Don’t make the same mistake, and ensure that any work you complete can still be high-quality and avoid sounding ‘spammy.’ Other than links to your site, guest blogging can help you to position yourself in front of a new audience and sound like more of an expert in your chosen field. Therefore, links are not the only advantage of guest posting, and should not be the be-all and end-all of your posts.

Additionally, guest posts should not only link back to your own site. It can be tempting to stuff in a lot of backlinks to encourage visitors to your blog, but it is also important to include links to other sources and high-quality sites. The blog owner (and perhaps worse, the readers) will realise that you have only written the piece for the links if you cram in too many backlinks. This is a dangerous strategy, because it has the opposite effect of good guest posting in that it ruins your reputation. Good luck getting asked to guest post again! A general rule is to never link to your own site more than 2-3 times on a long article. In fact, it’s even best to include a few internal links as well, just to please the blog host.

Finally, don’t forget to include a link to your site in your author bio. These links do not usually generate the most traffic, but they are undoubtedly a source of traffic to your site and therefore are still important. People clicking the link to your site will definitely increase search engine ratings thanks to the increase in site traffic.

Finding Guest Posting Opportunities

When trying to find an opportunity to guest post, the main thing to consider is finding a site relevant to your field. The blog you are wanting to post on should not only be centered around the same niche, but also have an engaged readership and an active blog owner.

A good way to find blogs on which to guest post is to do a keyword search in google. For better results, search for the keyword followed by “guest post,” or something along those lines to find a blog that will allow you to write a post for them.

If you are aware of well-known guest bloggers in your industry, try searching for their articles and reach out to the same sites.

Once you have found a site you want to write for and reached out to the owner, it is essential to get to know the blog and its content. Research will unveil what posts do the best and what the blog owner is looking for, increasing the likelihood of a successful pitch and an overall successful post.

Final Thoughts

Guest posting is far from dead, but it is also not the primary marketing strategy you should be using. Still, it is very useful for writers looking to boost their ratings. Just make sure you avoid those ever-dangerous practices such as keyword stuffing, and guest blogging might just earn you the site traffic you need to become a blogging sensation. Now you know some of the basics, get to guest blogging!

Why Knowing What Your Client Wants is Important

Perhaps one of the most important things to consider when taking up a new job is what the client actually wants. This sounds obvious, but there are several things to consider when applying for a job and discussing with the client what the job specifically entails.

Applying for the Post

You should only apply for jobs you are certain that you fit. Being a freelance writer you are likely to be drawn immediately to writing roles, or perhaps proofreading. If you have a flexible writing style, it is okay to apply to several different types of writing jobs, such as blog posts, news articles or product descriptions.

This said, it is important to make sure you are an appropriate fit regarding the content. Writing about something you know about and care about is one hundred times easier, after all. Some posts may require a little research, and that is not a problem. However, if you are being hired to write about business or use plenty of legal jargon, you must ensure that this is a field you have some experience in. Otherwise, you may struggle to write the content even despite research, and this will only cause trouble with the client.

Communication is Key

After you have applied for the post and received confirmation from the client that they wish to discuss your hire further, it is vital to establish a line of communication with the client. This may be via the messaging service of a freelancing website, via e-mail, or via a voice tool such as Skype. Different people prefer to communicate in different ways, and the client may prefer to dictate where you communicate in order to facilitate business and transaction. If you ask me, even when you chat with your client by Skype, it is a good idea ask they to write you an email with the instructions, so you have a place to look at when you have doubts about such instructions.

Before you even consider starting your work, you must discuss the job thoroughly with the client to understand fully what they want out of the job. Otherwise, it is easy to make mistakes which cause a lot of back-and-forth between yourself and the client, only creating more unnecessary work. Do not hesitate to ask questions! It is absolutely key to make sure you know how and what to write before you start.

Asking Questions

Throughout the process, it is okay to continue to ask the client about something if it springs to mind. You are not pestering them; in fact, it is likely that they will prefer someone who is dedicated and keen to complete the job to the best of their abilities.

It is better to check as you go along instead of wasting time sending off various draft copies to be marked and edited and sent back for corrections. This is why establishing a good line of communication early on is so important.

Criticism

Sometimes, despite your best efforts, there will still be things that the client wants to be changed. Do not take this to heart, it isn’t personal. The client is hiring you, after all. If you have followed all these other steps and done your best to satisfy the client completely before sending off your work, it will likely only be minor changes that can be finished very quickly.

This amounts to minimal time wasted and a high level of satisfaction with the client, probably earning you a good future reference when you require it.

Fulfilling a client’s needs is far from impossible. It’s simply all about communication, creating a better way to understand exactly what is being asked of you. I hope you heed this advice and that it serves you well in your freelance career. This is not to say that every future job will come up roses – some things just aren’t meant to be!

Technology and Artificial Intelligence in Freelancing

Technology is changing significantly these days, and with the world so focused on using technologies in our day-to-day lives, scientists are unsurprisingly eager to make everyone’s lives increasingly easier.

Artifical intelligence, or AI, is a relatively new field, but one that is expanding at a rapid rate. AI involves creating “smart” computers or machines that can, in a sense, think and learn for themselves to perform complex tasks. But how is this relevant to the world of freelance?

Proofreading

Already, there is a variety of sites and tools out there that proofread your documents and correct errors without you having to go through the effort of proofreading yourself. A basic example of this is SpellCheck and GradeProof, which points out simple mistakes to you. However, there are now also free sites such as Hemingway App, which goes into detail about your piece, including how lengthy and complex the sentences are, whether the words are over-complicated and can be simplified, and how many adverbs you have used.

This new kind of “smart-proofreading” is a good example of how AI can help in freelance work – it certainly speeds up the process of nit-picking!

Already helping us in our researches

AI-powered systems can also help freelancers with their research. Any freelance content writer worth their salt will know about SEO. Search Engine Optimization is a vital part of content writing, because there is no point in writing articles and posting them on the web if nobody is going to see them.

Ten or so years ago, web and article writing commonly featured keyword stuffing as a way to boost traffic through the site, because search engines were not able to detect this. In the last few years, however, the game has changed drastically. Now, search engines such as Google are integrated with AI in order to search for high-quality content, rather than just turning up sites that feature keywords. Search engines can now understand the content, and therefore push pages that are well-written and relevant rather than ones containing multitudes of keywords.

In addition, a relatively new AI algorithm can summarize long documents, therefore saving you a considerable amount of time researching. Of course, for many topics, the research you conduct may have been brief skim-reading anyway, which is why AI tools such as this come in handy.

Some people even use this technology to sift through messy e-mail inboxes, helping them to better prioritize their tasks. Again, this is an extremely useful freelance tool.

Even Logos

AI has a lot of uses other than writing tools. For example, Logojoy is a company that uses artificial intelligence to produce high quality logos for any business. The logos are created instantly after the user answers a few quick, simple questions about their preferences, and thanks to the AI integration, Logo Joy creates unique, aesthetically-pleasing designs.

The Future of AI

There are currently scientists working on ironing out the kinks in AI writing tools, meaning that in the future there may be bots capable of performing content writing tasks. This is a pretty scary thought for those of us who make a living off content writing, but as of yet the technology is extremely underdeveloped. Furthermore, it’s unlikely that computers will ever be able to surpass the flow of human language use.

A fair handful of freelancers are not limited to just one field. Perhaps writing is not your only expertise and you like graphic design, or perhaps you are wanting to branch out of freelancing into running a business of your own.

The uses for artificial intelligence are endless already, and who knows what will happen in the future.

How to Write a Fluent Piece

Writing a fluent piece of work is something that all writers, freelance or otherwise, aspire to achieve with every piece they undertake. Fluency engages the reader, draws them in, and encourages them to read through the entire thing. Perhaps, in the long-term, a good writing style, captivating prose and a well-planned layout can earn new readers, expanding your capabilities as a writer, be it in finding work or growing a fan-base.

This article will teach you the do’s and don’ts of writing a fluid piece that will improve freelancing prospects.

Plan Ahead

Planning is a vital part of writing. Usually, when undertaking freelance work, you might need to do a little research. This may be in the form of conducting actual research around the topic, or this may be researching the client and looking into their past work to get a feel for the work you should be producing. Researching and taking notes will later become important in developing a writing style.

Once you have an idea of what you want to produce, write out a brief plan of exactly how you want the article to go. What will the title be? What will you include in the post? Should you break the article up with sub-headings or write a solid piece? If the piece does include subheadings, what will these be? And what content will go under each heading?

Choose Your Style

This relates back to the research step: you should gain an idea of what style to use whilst doing your research, particularly if you have seen examples of what the client wants.

A style is extremely important, because without it your piece may look disconnected and it certainly won’t flow. Depending on the type of article, the style will differ slightly, and for this reason you should know your audience fairly well and know how to write targeting them. For example, writing a viral article will require more use of colloquial language and shorter sentences to maintain the attention of a variety of younger readers. On the other hand, a professional article might be more complex. Either way, the style must be consistent to avoid confusing or boring the reader.

Switch it Up

Although a style is essential, it is also a good idea to vary your language. Using sentences that are consistently the same length makes the article seem disjointed; persistently small sentences contain too many full stops, and if you read the piece aloud you will notice how broken up it sounds, but persistently long sentences are too complex and cause the reader to lose focus. In addition, you can also change the sentence function occasionally – in this article I have written statements, questions, and orders.

The same goes for language. Always using the same adjectives and vocabulary becomes tiresome, and will make the article seem less professional or well-written, which is likely to deter the reader.

Writing with Rhetoric

Not all articles require rhetorical features such as alliteration, onomatopoeia and rhetorical questions to make them memorable. However, sometimes these literary techniques can add rhythm to the piece and make them easier and more fun to read.

Triadic structure, for example, can quickly become your new best friend. Writing in list format with three words or three examples is incredibly rhythmic and it also reinforces the idea you are trying to put across.

Conjunctions

Additionally, you should always make good use of conjunctions to start or join your clauses or phrases. Adverbs at the beginning of a sentence help to guide your reader through the piece. “Firstly,” signifies the first of many ideas to come, while “however” implies that you are about to contradict a prior statement. These words provide a very helpful map for your readers to navigate through the piece, and overall add a much better flow.

Practice Makes Perfect!

Finally, the best thing you can do as practice. The more you write, the easier it will be to develop and adapt your style. Find your writing voice and use it to put all your points across clearly. By following these tips and putting your all into writing, you are certain to produce a piece that makes the words fall elegantly right off the page.

How to get your freelancing tasks done when away from home

When the Internet emerged into our everyday lives and many of us did not have Internet access, we started getting used to Internet cafes. They were a kind of combination of a coffee shop and an Internet access point.

With the spread of online working, the cyber cafe is beginning to transform into a new type of office as a novice of modern world. You can simply take your laptop and join the army of freelancers working in cyber offices named the coffice since they it serves as half an office and half a coffee shop.

Today you have the privilege to literally drag around in space  your job as a freelancer. You only search for the nearest coffice in the destination you are heading to and work goes on.

The coffice is a shared office in cities usually located on convenient, easily accessible places. It is a destination with co-working offices for individuals, business people, entrepreneurs and other like-minded people. Unlike traditional internet cafes, this is a larger area encompassing separate compartments equipped with desks for freelancers. Fast, unlimited Wi-Fi, work stations for PC and tablets, and scanners and printers are at your disposal.. Depending on the coffice design, there may be a conference room as well. This seems very handy if you have a meeting but lack a conference room to hold it. There are also various option regarding the time you need to spent working. You can rent your place for a few hours or choose among the various packages of renting service. You can even make a long term contract in case you have decided to stay in some place for uncertain time. Providing you travel around Spain, you have the possibility to submit a desk online. This is very convenient for people with a busy, and beforehand planned schedule.

The relaxation area is what provides you with some quality time off from your busy schedule. Again, depending on the site, you may find a wide range of refreshments and snacks from the buffet.  If you want to stretch your legs and lose your body you can attend the relaxation area and use their sofas and comfortable chairs.
