SEO Writers: Details on a $595 Keyword Research Project (Some Things You Should Know If You Do Keyword Research for Your Clients)

While here in Jamaica, my SEO writing company landed two new clients (and has another one on the hook – clients are coming out of the woodwork, I tell ya!). But, I digress. One of them was a small project, the other a complete rewrite of a client’s website, which included keyword research (I’ll get to that in just a bit)

Feeling “Unsure” of Yourself as an SEO Writer?

As an aside, I started to turn down this entire project – for two reasons. One, I’m here in Jamaica and while I always work when I’m here, I was looking forward to some downtime. I’d worked my tail off before leaving home in order to free up some time. But alas, it wasn’t meant to be.

I’ve worked more since I’ve been here than I wanted to – way more! – but that’s the life of a freelance writer (you take work as it comes for the most part). And not for nothing, this project paid a bundle – enough to pay for my whole trip here and then some – for about a week’s worth of work. See why it was hard to turn down?

The second reason was the REAL reason I almost turned this SEO writing project down – I felt it was outside my scope. You know when you get some project that you think, “Can I handle this? Am I really equipped with enough knowledge to do this project justice?

I rarely feel this way as I’m very confident in my abilities as a writer / editor / SEO content specialist. But, but this project made me feel this way. Why? Because it was for a medical site. I’m very familiar with legal terminology and how lawyers work, think, etc., but the medical profession is foreign to me for the most part.

Also, I was dealing directly with the “CEO” of the company. And I was on “vacation” – away from the comforts of my home office where everything (scanner, email, etc.) is within arm’s reach.

But, I decided to “push myself.” The very fact that I felt a bit intimidated made me take the project on because in my opinion, the only way to grow – in any facet of life – is to push yourself outside whatever your normal boundaries are.

So my firm took on the project – and I’m so glad I did. It wasn’t nearly as “hard” as I thought; the client was a dream to work with, and we’ve even discussed other work she wants done on a couple of other projects.

So the lesson here is – when you think you can’t, that’s exactly when you should push yourself to DO.

Now, to the details of keyword research for this project.

Doing Keyword Research – Some Things SEO Writers Should Keep in Mind

Part of the reason this client wanted the content on her site rewritten was to get more traffic. So of course, some keyword research had to be done.

Most of my SEO writing company’s clients provide us with the keywords they want us to write on. This client didn’t. So we did it. Following are a few observations from this experience I thought I’d share with you.

Experience: If you don’t know how to do keyword research, then don’t do it. You can always outsource this portion of the project.

What to Charge for Keyword Research: I did some web surfing to find out what others were charging for this service – and like most things related to freelance / SEO writing, the rates for doing keyword research were all over the place.

At New Media Words, we charge $85/hour.

Content Dictates Keyword Research: As we were rewriting content for this client’s entire site, I did some preliminary keyword research first to get the main keyword phrases down, then went back and did research for the individual pages once I knew what they were (which was dictated by the rewriting of the content, of course).

Rewrite Content: I actually did all the writing for this project myself as it came out of the blue and I didn’t want to burden my outsourcers with it. I also wanted “the challenge” as I talked about before. As the owner of an SEO writing company, it helps to keep my skills sharp also if I do some of the writing – even though I can afford to outsource all of it for the most part.

That being said, after I’d written the content, I went back and “sprinkled the keywords throughout it.” The reason is, when you write content, it can be hard to “write naturally” if you’re trying to think of which keyword to stick where.

So for me, it’s easier to write the content first, then go back and insert applicable keywords. Usually, you can integrate them more naturally (eg, write themed content instead of keyword stuffed content).

Keyword Research Proposal / Contract Ebook

I’ll be putting together a little ebook about this project, because more and more clients are requesting that SEO writers do keyword research – so the little e-pamphlet I’m going to write will contain a keyword research proposal, what exactly doing “keyword research” entails (from my point of view), and how to go about it.

Of course, I announce it here when I’m done.

SEO Copywriting Training Class in Jamaica Next April – New Details

I hoofed it to I can’t tell you how many hotels on 7-Mile beach here yesterday, personally checking out hotels for participants. I finally found one . . . its:

Right on the beach (10 steps and you’re there);

Large closet;

Large room (some hotels can make you feel squeezed; no this one, the rooms are very roomy;

Flat-screen TV (with cable);

Great amenities (eg, coffee maker right in your room which is replenished with supplies daily);

Large; roomy shower (really nice bathrooms all around);

Two full-sized beds in each room;

In-room safe for valuables;

Nice, cold AC (a lot of the hotels here have AC, of course, but it doesn’t get cold enough sometimes for my liking);

Balcony and/or terrace off each room (depends on which floor you’re on);

Security (almost every hotel here has this too, but this one is super secure – you won’t have to worry about a thing – eg, no one who’s not staying at the hotel can enter);

Free Wi-Fi (in the lobby only (not in your room, although you can pay for access to it on a daily/weekly basis if you want)). This was the only downside to this hotel IMO; and

Extra-nice hotel staff – they couldn’t have been more accommodating to my gazillion questions. I met the hotel manager herself and she personally escorted me around.

The hotel is relatively new, so everything is super nice (a lot of the hotels here, though nice, can be dated). Not this one, everything is super shiny, extra clean and just all-around nice.

What is this hotel? Well, you’ll have to wait until I get back home (after Dec 4th). I want to get more pics and do a final post about the class. This way, you’ll be able to SEE for yourself what I’m talking about.

Remember, the cost of your hotel is INCLUDED in the price of the SEO writing seminar. And, you can bring a friend/loved one, as your room includes two beds.

On a personal note . . .

Tomorrow is the Reggae Marathon. I have to pick up my running packet today, and there’s a big “pasta party” for all participants tonight. I’m looking forward to it, but really ready to have it done so I can enjoy my last few days on the island.

Between work and training, it’s been hectic; I’ve barely had time to breathe.

FYI, there’s a new post in the Living in Jamaica series over on InkwellEditorial.com. It details what the Reggae Marathon experience is all about. I did the marathon here last year, but never posted the pics.

Enjoy, and have a great weekend.

SEO Content Writers: One Relatively Easy Service to Get Old (and New) Clients to Buy from You

Recently, I started contributing to a couple of new sites. One is e-Junkie, where I’ve blogged mostly about self-publishing; the other is FamousBloggers.net. My first post here is about article marketing, ie, Why Article Marketing Is Still One of the Quickest, Easiest Ways to Get on the First Page of Google (FYI, you have to scroll down past a pretty thick header to get to the article).

So, what does all of this have to do with the title of this post? Well, article marketing is one of the easiest services to sell to clients, mainly for the following three reasons.

3 Reasons Article Marketing Is One of the Easiest Services to Sell to Clients

Organic Traffic: It’s still one of the quickest, easiest ways to drive organic traffic to a site. Proof? I explain this in more detail in the article, Freelance Writers: 10 Reasons the Google Panda Update Makes (SEO) Article Marketing Even More Effective & Means More Work for You.

I not  only explain, but I give specific examples so you can see it in black and white for yourself. 

Content Marketing: Clients are starting to learn about – and invest in content marketing. Learn more about this in the post, Content Marketing: Conversation with a Leading Internet Marketing Expert on Why It’s the Wave of the Future & Why It Spells Opportunity for Freelance Writers

Article marketing is just another form of content marketing – and once you point out the benefits of it (eg, it drives traffic for years), it’s like a light bulb goes off for some clients (ie, those who “get it”).

Busy Clients: Piggybacking off the last point, many clients are too busy to constantly create new content for their sites, blogs and social media outlets. So, they’ll gladly pay a freelance writer (you!) to take this duty of their hands.

The way I offer it to my clients is saying something like, “You can put your web content needs on auto pilot – outsource it (to us) and forget it.”

One a personal note . . .  

For my American friends, I hope you enjoyed the Thanksgiving holiday  yesterday. I had way too many rum punches (I’m in Jamaica right now), so I’m off for a long, hard workout to get this rum outta my system so I can get some (more) work done!

The Living in Jamaica Series is Back

FYI, there’s a new post in the “Living in Jamaica” series over on InkwellEditorial.com. It’s been over a year since I posted in this series (I couldn’t believe when I looked at the date that it’s been that long!). Being back in Jamaica has led to me picking it up again. I’ll be blogging for at least the next few months on it again — every couple of weeks or so. Enjoy!

How to Outsource SEO Writing Jobs So You Earn More as a Freelance Writer: The Ultimate Guide

The following is a guest post by SEO copywriter Dan Stelter.

I’ve been a fan of Yuwanda’s for some time – my friend recommended her e-book for getting started in SEO writing. It came at a critical time in life, when my other career path was coming to a dead end. As an aspiring entrepreneur and someone who enjoyed writing, I logically decided at that point, “Why the heck not?!”

A little over a year later, I’ve had a successful first year and have added a few subcontractors who have helped out. I am aiming to scale my business in the coming year, and hopefully bigger and better things happen.

Freelancing and Outsourcing Writing Jobs: My Topsy, Turvy Start

During the first year, I’ve had all kinds of ups and downs, some of which relate to outsourcing. I know I had a ton of fears and questions, so hopefully my experiences in this article help answer some of your questions and relieve your fears.

Outsourcing Online Writing Jobs: Websites I Tried and Their Results

At first, I had no idea what I was doing when it came to outsourcing! Here’s what I tried . . .

Overseas writers. One of my first clients offered hundreds of articles for $10 apiece. I thought, “Here’s my chance to outsource.” I went to some website, whose name escapes me, and attempted to hire some Filipinos to help out. I wasn’t as aware at the time of Google needing quality.

Lesson learned: This was a total disaster and bad decision on my part. Non-native English speakers just don’t have the command over the English language that native English speakers do. I had some samples created, but none came close to what a fluent English writer could produce. I did the work intended for them myself.

Textbroker. This was the first, and only, content mill I tried out. The author I worked with there was 5-star-rated, and he churned out decent quality content. In retrospect, there’s much better quality out there. At Textbroker, you can get people to work cheaply, but you’ll get what you pay for.

Lesson learned: Stay away from the content mills. The quality of the work will only blend in with everyone else’s, which doesn’t give your competitor’s a reason to pay you more to do the job. You also can’t interact with the author, except through Textbroker – frustrating if you want to run your own business.

Warrior Forum. I stumbled on this forum by accident. If you aren’t familiar with it, it’s all about internet marketing. Tons of people hang out there. There’s a sub-forum for content writing, and a number of people, ranging from very experienced to newbie, spend time there.

Eventually, I had the need to outsource, so I tried people from this site. I received about 30 – 40 responses for the first advertisement posted, and many of them had multiple, glaring grammar errors. Several people represented themselves professionally. The first ended up not completing the job and costing me a client; the second did not complete her job, but I ended up finishing it on time. At that point, I’d had enough.

Lesson learned: First, as Yuwanda says, make your writer’s deadline a couple days before the real deadline, to give you time to finish the work just in case the writer drops off the planet. Second, Warrior Forum has an active community, but only a small part of that community can represent itself professionally. Better talent is easier to find other places.

Odesk. I’ve had a few projects to outsource to here. My experience here has been somewhat mixed. You can find pretty good quality writers, but you can find many who just aren’t that good. On the projects that I used help on, everyone was reliable, so that was a plus. However, the major downside is Odesk charges a 10% fee for all funds you pay a writer, which is just too much for your business, or the writer, to absorb.

Lesson learned: Odesk is great in a pinch if you have nowhere else to go. Finding top-quality writers is challenging, but doable. However, if you have clients who aren’t picky, Odesk works pretty well.

Craigslist. I was somewhat astonished this was by far the best place to find writers. When I advertised the most recent ad, people who had worked for large corporations and who had been in freelance writing for 20 or more years responded. The writers with the least talent were much more talented than the average Odesk or Warrior Forum writer. I received applications from across the world. The reliability has been great so far.

Lesson learned: If you want to create a successful business, Craigslist is a winner. The talent there will help you differentiate from the competition. In addition, I had a 20-minute conversation with each writer, which I didn’t do before. The main problem was some of these people were so experienced that I couldn’t quite pay them enough money to do the work I wanted!

I have more that I could share with you about outsourcing, but that’s what I’ve learned so far. There must be other sites that work well also, but this has been my experience.

How One Freelance SEO Writer Stuck to Her Pricing Guns – and Got the Rate She Wanted

Back in the spring in a post on InkwellEditorial.com, this site’s sister site, I relayed the story of how one freelancer had lowered her freelance (SEO) writing rates because she was desperate for work. While she did land some jobs, she soon found out that it wasn’t worth what she was being paid, so she quickly increased her rates.

Well, she contacted me the other day in a fit of pure delight. She said:

Thanks Yuwanda for telling me to stick to my ‘pricing guns.’ I just landed a new client who didn’t even bat an eye at my $35 rate (for 400-word SEO articles). And, they already paid the invoice – for two articles – with more work on the way if they like what I deliver.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! You were so right.

After congratulating her on her success, I asked her what made her stick to her new, higher SEO writing rates. Following is what she told me (I’ve thrown in some of my experience too) – which I thought many would find useful.

What am I losing when I take on low-paying SEO writing jobs?

This freelancer said the main reason she found it so easy to stick to her new rates is that she thought about what she was losing when she was working for so little. As I mentioned in the linked-to post above, she has other income streams (she writes ebooks and does a few other things).

She said that every time she was writing an SEO article for $10/pop, she felt like she was wasting her time – time that could be spent marketing her own products (ebooks).  

She went on to relay that even though she was sorely tempted when an old client came back with some work – and expected to get her previously low rates – she forced herself to remember why she increased her rates to begin with (again, focusing on what she would be losing).

What Low-Paying SEO Writing Jobs Taught Me

I’ve taken on freelance writing jobs of all kinds (not just SEO writing jobs) that paid way less than I knew I should be earning. For the most part, this was a conscious decision. Sometimes though, it was because I felt like I didn’t have any choice (you always have a choice). 

Now when I took on low-paying work with a defined goal in mind – like I advised this SEO writer to do – I never regretted it. But anytime I felt like I had to take on low-paying writing jobs just to pay the bills, I almost always regretted it because it didn’t make me feel good about myself. [Note: See follow-up post to the one linked to in this paragraph.]

Overall, what taking on low-paying freelance writing jobs taught me is that it all comes down to planning –as in having a life plan. I explained it this way in a previous post, writing:

The way I’ve always made decisions about which freelance / SEO writing jobs to take on has nothing to do with what “the industry norm” is [as far as rates are concerned] or what other freelance writers think —  and everything to do with my life and my goals.

How Low-Paying SEO Writing Jobs Could Negatively Impact Your Freelance Career (and It Has Nothing to Do with Money)

When you work for what feels like “slave wages” it makes you fell less than worthy. This is no way to work. Work should never make you feel “less than.”

Now do we all have to pay our dues and do things to progress our careers that mean “working for less” sometimes? Sure. But working for less than is not the same thing as “feeling less.”

To explain, if you consistently take on work that makes you feel unworthy (or do anything in your life that doesn’t add  to your self-esteem / self-worth) – then trust me, that seeps into your soul and eventually you start to not only feel “less than,” but act less than as well. And you probably won’t even realize it because it’s a gradual, subliminal thing.

Don’t put yourself in this situation.

One of the great things about freelancing is that it’s empowering. It should make you feel like you’re in control, that you’re worthy and that you can do anything you set your mind to. Hence, do things that nurture this feeling, not detract from it. 

So if you’re a freelance / SEO writer and feel like you’re forever doomed to taking on low-paying SEO writing jobs – just know, it’s not true. You can land higher-paying writing jobs, but you must stick to your pricing guns – and hold tight to your self worth.

Have a good one!

Get SEO Writing Jobs: A Detailed, 3-Step Follow-Up Action Plan that Can Help You Land More Gigs

A few weeks ago here, we discussed how SEO writing jobs are all over the place – and how you can find them even as you go about your normal daily routine.

In the linked-to post above, I talked about how I had gotten a potential new client – who happened to be my new dentist. A couple of days ago, I went back for a final check-in before I head off to Jamaica next week (I will be scouting hotels for the SEO copywriter training class in April 2013).

Landing an SEO Writing Client – By Going to the Dentist!

Well, my new dentist is now a formal SEO writing client. He told me on this last visit that he’s ready to get started. While I’m in Jamaica, I will be putting together a marketing plan for his practice and he’s going to let me know which parts he wants to start with upon my return.

How to Properly Follow Up with Potential Clients and Land More SEO Writing Jobs

This got me to thinking about the attorney I talked about in the linked-to post at the beginning of this article. I haven’t followed up with him yet. The reason is I really don’t have a formal follow-up system in place for warm leads. I have one in place for existing clients, but again, not one for leads I generate that never become clients.

Also, I’m so busy with my self-publishing projects and overseeing existing client projects that I don’t do much proactive marketing for SEO writing work. Most of my SEO writing company’s projects come by way of referral these days.

But, I decided to put together a 3-step follow-up program – one that every SEO writer can use. Here’s a quick rundown of it.

Follow-up Step 1: Nice to Have Met You. After you meet/make contact with a potential client – no matter where it is or how it happened — log that information in a file, along with the prospect’s contact info. The reason is, you want to reference it in your first follow up – which will be a simple “Nice to have met you / made your acquaintance” email, phone call or direct mail (eg, postcard) contact.

Using my meeting with the dentist as an example, my first follow-up contact would have been something like:

Thanks for making me feel so comfortable as a new patient Dr. A. I’m sure you hear it all the time, but going to the dentist is not exactly something most look forward to. You and your staff made it very pleasant. I really appreciate that. 

I’ve scheduled my follow-up visit with Ms. G, and will see you soon.

FYI, per our conversation about your online marketing, I jotted down some notes about your website and emailed them to you. I look forward to discussing them with you. We can solidify a time on my next visit if you like.

Again, thanks for alleviating the dental concerns I had as I prepared for my trip. Now, I’m REALLY looking forward to going.

Sincerely,

Yuwanda Black
A Happy New Patient!
info@NewMediaWords.biz
PH: 000-000-0000

The tone of the email is light, yet professional; pointed, but not pushy. AND, I gave him something to do (eg, go over some notes about his website).

Follow-up Step 2: Ask about Info You Dispensed. The reason it’s important to give your client something to do in your first follow-up is it gives you a valid reason to make a second contact. Ask them if they’ve (i) had a chance to go over the info you gave them, and (ii) if they have any questions about it. This starts a dialogue; take it from there.

If you don’t receive any response within 30 days (I’d always wait at least 30 days before making a second contact), then send another touch base email (or phone call).

Follow-up Step 3: Try to Persuade Prospect to Take the Next Step. If you don’t hear from your prospect after this second contact (again, wait at least 30 days), follow up again – and this time ask for an appointment so that you can discuss their needs.

The reason I’d proceed like this is, sometimes prospects put off contacting you because they don’t have time to (i) go over the material you sent them; and (ii) formulate questions to ask. So, asking for an appointment can alleviate both of these stumbling blocks. How? Because it will give them a chance to ask everything all at once – and possibly move forward. 

So your email may say something like:

Dear [Client Name]:

Just touching base to see if you’ve had a chance to review the information I sent over on [insert date]. I know you mentioned that you wanted to get more leads from your website. We can definitely help with that.

Web marketing can be confusing because there’s so much to learn. Why don’t we schedule a call so I can answer any/all questions you have? Right now, anytime on Tuesday afternoon (from 1-4) works for me. Just shoot me an email to let me know what time during this period works and I’ll call you.

If this timeframe doesn’t work, let me know what does and I’ll do my best to accommodate. 

I look forward to hearing from you, and to helping you generate leads from your website in time for the holiday season.

This email does two things: (i) It ASKS for contact at a specific time; and (ii) it subtly reminds the client that the lucrative holiday season is here and if they want to make online sales they need to “get on it!” Try to remember this when you put together your follow-up correspondence.

When to STOP Contacting Prospects for SEO Writing Jobs

If a client doesn’t respond after this third contact, I’d relegate them to my “To be contacted every 60 days” prospect list. A rule of thumb I’ve always used is never stop contacting a prospect – unless they specifically ask you not to.

Your follow up every sixty days should be short and to the point, ie:

Want to learn how to increase your online sales by 15-25% or more? Content marketing rocks – and we know how to help you do it right! Just wanted to remind you that we’re here when you’re ready to get started.”

Note how I use a specific, BENEFITS-oriented message (ie, increase leads by 15-25% or more). This is much more effective than a general message like, “We can help you generate more web leads.” 

FYI, some other good reasons to contact prospects is when you write a new report, run across info pertinent to their niche (shoot them a quick link), offer special deals on your services, etc.

The bottom line is to stay in touch – regularly enough to be top of mind, but not often enough to be annoying. Over the years, I’ve found that 60 days is just about right.

How Long Will It Take to Snare New SEO Content Writing Clients by Following Up?

Some prospects will never do business with you (that’s just a marketing reality). But, some will – and they could go on to become a long-term, lucrative part of your SEO writing business.

I’ve had clients contact me as much as two to four years later to offer work, saying something to the effect of, “I’ve been receiving your emails (newsletters, tips, etc.). We just landed a new client who’s going to need lots of web copy. Can you blah, blah, blah ...” 

FYI, this form of reaching out is known as drip marketing, and it’s highly effective when used consistently.

Share Your Thoughts

Do you have a follow-up plan in place to land SEO writing jobs? If so, share how it’s worked for you in the comments section below. If not, share why not (eg, I just never really thought about it) and if you plan to start.

On a Personal Note . . .

I’m off to Jamaica next week for a month. Can’t wait to hit the beach form some training time. I’ll be doing the Reggae Marathon on Dec 1st. I hate running in the cold (which has come to Atlanta), so am really  looking forward to training in warm weather again.

Although I’ll be having fun, this is a working vacay. I’ll settle on a hotel for the SEO writing class next April, so have appts to view at least half a dozen. I know where they all are (on the infamous 7-Mile beach in Negril), but have never seen the rooms of most of them, so am doing my due diligence before booking. I want participants to be comfortable – and conveniently located to everything.

Can’t believe this year has gone so fast – November already – are you kidding me?!

The older you get, the more time flies, so particularly for all you late 20-somethings and early 30-somethings out there – hear this – life goes soooo much faster than you ever dreamed. Settle on a career and make saving a habit. You’ll be so glad you did when you’re my age (late 40s) and you’ll be in good financial shape as well (if you control spending, in addition to saving consistently).

Have a good one!
