Mixing a brew of freelancing and writing in the pan of social media

Three Kinds of Writers at Your Service

Let me tell you about three kinds of writers in the world today. They are all there quietly working with their words and building something that is needed for someone.

You do know that writers are like carpenters. Just like carpenters shape the wood into structures and objects with their handy tools, in the same way writers too shape things. The handy tool for a writer is a collection of words.

Whether he uses those words to build something that he personally wants, or she uses those words to build something someone else wants — the objective is the same. Build a construction that satisfies.

Different Writers

What is the first question that you have inside your head, when someone says ‘I am a writer’? I guess it would be: ‘Really?! What does he write?’

To answer that, I have to let you in on something more important. You have to understand that there isn’t just one kind of a writer. Actually there are three different kinds of writers operating their art in different corners of the world.

1. The Fiction Writer: Most of you know about this kind of writer. After all, if you are a reader, then you have a favourite writer. That writer, in most cases, is a fiction writer. Someone who writes stories, someone who imagines stories and then puts them into words and presents them to the world in the form of a book.

In this category I have a few favourite writers that I can remember offhand. They are Alistair MacLean, John Grisham, Jeffrey Archer, Robert Ludlum, George Orwell, Enid Blyton, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and obviously The JK Rowling. 🙂

They are all remembered as fiction writers who managed to create such imaginary worlds and characters that their writing has become their legacy which they have left/will leave for generations to come.

The fiction writer prefers to work from his imagination. He prefers to create characters that seem to want to come out of her mind. The characters keep nagging a fiction writer to get them out of his mind and on to a page or a computer screen. There is no peace for such a writer till the story is finally out and the characters have settled into the story comfortably. The happiness for such a writer comes from the fact that finally, that irritating nagging inside her head has stopped and she can have a more peaceful sleep. 🙂

2. The Non-Fiction Writer: Not too many of you know about this kind of writer. But still there are quite a few of you who have picked up some non-fiction book that you saw in the local library or market bookshop and flipped through the pages. You found the book interesting and you also remembered that other people had recommended that non-fiction book. As a result, you ended up buying this book.

In other words, this non-fiction book was written by a non-fiction writer. These are writers who write their books in the category of Personal Development, Food & Cuisine, Health, Psychology, History, Science, Technology and other topics. Some of my favourite non-fiction writers are Robin Sharma, Dr Wayne Dyer, Napoleon Hill, Dale Carnegie, Stephen Covey, Anita Moorjani, Dr Eben Alexander, PMH Atwater and others I don’t remember now, even though I have read their books.

The non-fiction writer writes a book based on his life experience. This kind of writer shares his personal insight and the essence of something important that he has understood doing some experiment or activity. He shares his gained knowledge with his readers and hopes that the readers can benefit in some practical way from his book.

3. The Freelance Writer: Very few of you know about this kind of a writer. Currently, I am this kind of a writer. Why don’t many of you know about this kind of a writer? There’s only one reason. They are using their words to promote someone else, to help someone else and to be instantly useful to someone else.

In other words, they are quietly working for others and earning a living by getting payment for their service. Yes, this kind of writer, the freelance writer, is a professional for hire. He is ready to write for you, take care of all your writing needs and make your life easy by doing the job for you. All you need to do is to make a fair payment to her for her writing service.

I don’t have any favourite freelance writer. But there are many wonderful and brilliant freelance writers out there who I look up to. I am learning the art of freelancing by reading their blogposts and checking out their online websites.

These freelance writers are contributing in many roles that include magazine writers, content writers, blog writers, speech writers, slogan writers, copywriters, article writers and essay writers. Freelance writers have a list of clients who are giving them work regularly for which they get paid and the cycle goes on.

Interestingly, quite a few freelance writers after a period of time take on the role of non-fiction book writers or fiction writers. They stop being client-writers and just write for themselves, with the occasional client work now and then.

They are waiting

These three different kinds of writers are all out there waiting to serve you in their own particular way. You might say that you don’t really need them or their words. But then, in order to confidently say such a thing: You will have to be blind or be illiterate. Why?

Because if you do read a word written anywhere,
Then remember it was written by a writer somewhere.

HOW TO SELECT A DIGITAL MARKETING AGENCY 🏅 . Let's face it. Once you commit your business promotion to digital marketing, then that's a big first step. 🕺 . Your 2nd big step is a challenge. That step is selecting a digital marketing agency that is right for you and your business. 🕵️ . Fact is there are so many digital agencies out there. Whether boutique or full service, each of these agencies claim to be the best. 💕 . How do you shortlist them before you make your 1st contact? 📝 . SELECTION FACTORS ✒️ . Let me give you some pointers. . 1⃣ GOOGLE PAGE CHECK . As soon as you enter “digital marketing agency [your city]” in Google search, check names of agencies coming on Page one ORGANIC search. Those are the agencies you assess first as they are doing something right to deserve Page one search status. 📌 . 2⃣ WEBSITE CHECK . Check out the website of each digital marketing agency you come across. Browse through its pages. 📖 . What kind of vibes do you get from the agency content? How smooth is the browsing? How is the agency coming across to you? 💻 . 3⃣ SOCIAL MEDIA CHECK . Check social media accounts of agency that are listed on its website. Is the agency posting regularly there? What kind of content is there? 🤳 . 4⃣ BLOG CHECK . Check whether agency has a blog. If “Yes”, then what date was the last blog published. If “No”, then it's a minus. Why isn't the agency blogging? Aren't they into content marketing - a crucial element of digital marketing? 🖱️ . 5⃣ TEAM CHECK . Check whether agency lists out its team members on its website. Most agencies don't do this. But those who do, consider them more professional. 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 . Go ahead. All the best. 🤞👍 . . . #digitalraza #digitalmarketing #digitalmarketingagency #socialmedia #socialmediatips #internetmarketing #digitalmarketer #lucknow #lucknowblogger #entrepreneur #content #contentmarketing #socialmediaagency #socialmediamarketing #businessowner #digitalselling #digitalagency #creativeagency #agency #agencylife #businessman #businesswoman #marketingdigital #marketingonline #websitedesign #blogging
HOW DIGITAL MARKETING AGENCIES EVALUATE YOU 📋 . If you are a business owner and decide to go for digital marketing, then you take some action. 🏃 . This action in most cases would be that you get in touch with a digital marketing agency. 📞 . Did you know that digital marketing agencies also evaluate you as a prospective client, before deciding to work with you? 🔎 . MY STORY 🎬 . Last month I personally met guys in seven digital marketing agencies in my city. I had assessed work of these agencies and based on merit I met them. 🖱️ . A relative of mine wanted to have his personal website redesigned. Currently he has his own hosting but his website is in HTML code. He wanted his website to have a simple CMS like Wordpress so that his team could upload content on their own. 💻 . I contacted agencies and briefed them on our website requirement. 📃 . HOW AGENCIES REACTED 🚹 . I went to 7 agencies located in 7 different city locations in a single day. 🐰 . The agency owners/reps listened to me patiently. They too shared their thoughts with me. I requested each of them to mail me a proposal. They agreed. 🐤 . Two agency owners however did have reservations in sending a proposal and conveyed to me. They gave me a verbal quotation for the website work. 🦋 . Finally I got three agency proposals in the mail out of 7 agencies in a few days. Two of these agencies even followed up on their proposal. 🗨️ . AGENCY THINKING 🤔 . In my opinion, this is how agencies thought about our business. . 1⃣ Client project doesn't have much merit. Can't give time to it. . 2⃣ Client project doesn't have much ROI. Money returns on project not much. . 3⃣ Can't spare agency teams on client project. Got other high value ROI projects on hand to complete. . (BTW, we haven't finalised any agency proposal yet.) 🐢 . . . . #digitalraza #digitalmarketing #digitalmarketingagency #socialmedia #socialmediatips #internetmarketing #digitalmarketer #lucknow #lucknowblogger #entrepreneur #content #contentmarketing #socialmediaagency #socialmediamarketing #businessowner #digitalselling #digitalagency #creativeagency #agency #agencylife #businessman #businesswoman #marketingdigital #marketingonline

WHY DIGITAL MARKETING IS POINTLESS...FOR YOU 🤖 . Most people agree that digital marketing is very important today. But you are among the few who disagree. You think it is pointless. 🔕 . Here are three reasons why you think so. . #1. NO WEBSITE ❌ . You have no website or blog for your business. Because you feel digital marketing is pointless...even worthless. 🚮 . Having an online headquarter like your business website or blog is critical and STEP ONE for digital marketing. Yet, you choose not to have one. Fine. Your choice. 🏁 . #2. NO BUSINESS SOCIAL ACCOUNT ❌ . You do have a personal Facebook or Instagram or Twitter account. But you don't have a business account on FB, Instagram or Twitter. You don't think much of it. 🔇 . Having a business social account allows you to run valuable ads promoting your product or service to interested people. Yet you feel otherwise. Fine. Your choice. 🏁 . #3. NO REGULAR SOCIAL POSTING ❌ . You don't post regularly on your private account about what you are doing in your business. You don't feel the need for it. 🤔 . Most digital marketers would say that posting daily about different aspects of your business is best and ideal. It helps to really connect prospective customers with your business. You prefer to shrug it off. Fine. Your choice. 🏁 . . . . . #digitalraza #digitalmarketing #digitalmarketingagency #socialmedia #socialmediatips #internetmarketing #digitalmarketer #lucknow #lucknowblogger #entrepreneur #content #contentmarketing #socialmediaagency #socialmediamarketing #businessowner #digitalselling #digitalagency #creativeagency #agency #agencylife #businessman #businesswoman #websites #websitedevelopment
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU TAKE ACTION 🏋️ . Are you done with your thinking? 🤔 . I mean you have been thinking about some problem. Maybe it is one problem or multiple problems. For the past 3 days or 3 weeks or even 3 months you have been thinking about it, analysing it. 🔄 . I think you need to stop your thinking today. What you need to do today is take your first action. That's it. Why? ♻️ . #1. ACTION = RESULTS 📌 . Yes. It is only action that will get you any results. In other words, if you are thirsty, then you need to take action. Pick up that glass of water in front of you and bring it to your lips. Mere thinking won't do it. 🔍 . #2. ACTION = BETTER DECISIONS 📌 . When you take action, you get new thought patterns that help you decide on taking even better action. You see, action stimulates the brain and unites your being towards getting desired results. 📨 . #3. ACTION = HOPE 📌 . Hope hides behind action. Hope appears right in front of you once you start taking action. Both go together. As long as you are taking action, hope stays with you. Action stops, hope goes back in hiding. 🚷 . So, you know what to do now. You have given enough time to thinking. ➡️ . It's time to take massive action now. ▶️⏩ . . . . . #digitalraza #digitalmarketing #digitalmarketingagency #internetmarketing #digitalmarketer #lucknow #lucknowblogger #entrepreneur #content #contentmarketing #socialmediaagency #businessowner #businessman #businesswoman #action #actionsspeaklouderthanwords #thoughts #thought #hope #hopeful #decision #decisions #decisionsdecisions #recliner #reclinersofa
WHY YOU NEED TO TRACK YOUR TIME ⏰ . Time they say is one commodity that you can't buy with any amount of money. This is why time is the great leveller. 🕑 . Both rich and poor get equal measure of time to use it to their advantage. You always receive a new set of 24 hours daily, just like everyone else. Can you use that time well? 🔔 . MINDLESS MINUTES 🐀 . Yes. You need to keep strict track of your time. You know time is money isn't it? 💷 . Then why aren't you using your common sense and spending time as carefully as you spend money? 💸 . You don't just throw away your money impulsively at anything you fancy. You think about it and then spend money. 🤔 . Sad thing is you don't think much about spending the precious quota of time that you get every 24 hours. Most times you spend away your minutes and hours mindlessly daily. You don't get anything worthwhile in return for that time spent. Then you get frustrated and disappointed with yourself as success eludes you. 🎲 . TRACK IT 🎯 . Now I offer you a small solution. Track your time. It's completely up to you to adopt it….or not. 🤹 . Since yesterday I have started using this android app called 'Smarter Time’. It tracks my daily time activity. I keep adding activities I am doing at any point. I think it is useful. ✔️ . The objective here is that both your personal and professional life get valuable minutes of nurturing daily. 🔁 . This app could help you analyse and allot your minutes and hours properly to activities that fill you with peace and satisfaction. 🤸 . All the best. 👍 . . . . . . #digitalraza #digitalmarketing #digitalmarketingagency #socialmedia #internetmarketing #digitalmarketer #lucknow #lucknowblogger #entrepreneur #content #contentmarketing #socialmediaagency #socialmediamarketing #businessowner #digitalselling #digitalagency #creativeagency #agency #agencylife #businessman #businesswoman #time #timemanagement #timepass #timemanagementtips
