Make yourself an expert
I have been making a lot of posts lately and there more to come. 2010 is definitely the year when I will move promotion of LetterRep to the front.
This post, however, is about how you should make yourself a subject matter expert.
As we all know, there are plenty of people in the world who didn’t get the same opportunity to learn to write as we did. Some did get that opportunity but received it in a different language and their letters written in the languages we speak.
One of the best ways you can promote yourself is to appear as subject matter expert in the subject of writing. To do this, you should be searching around the net for blogs or forums where people ask questions about writing.
One of the forums I’ve found is this one: http://www.englishforums.com/
I suggest you visit it and register for it. In the right column of the page, you will see a list of ‘Unanswered questions.’ This list is begging for people to help them with English. When you answer the question, you should leave your signature and the address to your letters (and just your letters) on the site. Mine might look like this:
Check out my letters on LetterRep.com.
To get the URL for just your letters, do this:
1) Go to the site, http://www.LetterRep.com
2) From the homepage, conduct a search for a letter of yours on the site
3) Once you find one of yours, to the right click the ‘View writer’s works’ link. (The next page lists all the letter categories in which you have letters.)
4) From the resulting page, copy the URL.
The more of an expert you appear to be the more likely customers are to come to you.
Finally, here’s a search query I conducted that showed me a lot of results for people needing writing assistance: I need someone to write a letter for me
Let me know if you have any questions.
