Freelance SEO Writers: Is Your Site Missing These Elements? Is It Costing You Business?

A well-designed website can bring you leads. As an SEO writer, it also helps to have a good ranking to illustrate to clients, “Hey, I know what I’m doing. My site ranks pretty well for keywords in my niche.”

I’ve been meaning to update my SEO writing website for quite some time now – probably going on two years. I made it a resolution and finally got around to it this week. My main goal was to get it to a state where I wouldn’t be embarrassed about it. Yesterday, I finished it (for now).

It took three days of 10-12 hours of work to revamp it. Some things jumped out at me that I want to share with you that can help you rank well. So whether you’re new to SEO writing and don’t have a website, or if you’ve had your site up for a while and are thinking about revamping it, keep the following in mind to get that all-important search engine boost.

1. Get Your Site Designed in WordPress

Let me say right off the bat that mine is still in HTML. What’s the difference?

In short, WordPress is interactive, whereas HTML is static. For example, WordPress has plugins that show you things like “Most Popular Post”; “Most Read Post”; “Related Content;” etc. An HTML site has none of these features. It’s literally just like a brochure on the web.

So why is my site still in HTML? I had a WordPress theme designed for it a couple of years go, but never got around to using it. At the time, I’d planned to start a content marketing blog – speaking to prospective SEO writing clients.

But I never got around to doing that because the two blogs I already operate (this one and InkwellEditorial.com) are almost more than I can handle. So, I decided to keep New Media Words as just a static web presence that showcases the services we offer.

Most of my clients these days come via referral, and when I do need to market, I reach out to them directly. So while blogging — and of course, building a mailing list targeting potential clients — could have brought in more business, it’s just not something that’s necessary for me right now.

FYI, learn more about the difference between WordPress and HTML.

2. Write Your Meta Tags

For years, search marketing experts have been disagreeing about how important (or not) meta tags are. Google still uses them to some degree to judge what a page is all about, so yes, meta tags are still important.

2 Meta Tags You Should Absolutely Write

If you don’t write any others, take the time to at least write your description and title tags. These tags tell search engines what a specific page on your site is all about. If you don’t write your meta tags, Google (search engines) will generate snippets of what it thinks the page is all about.

But, consider this – wouldn’t you rather have your site described by you, not a search engine? It could mis-classify it or not describe it as well as you would. So that’s why it pays to write them.

FYI, the “Keyword” meta tag is useless now. Matt Cutts – Google’s SEO guru – has said that they don’t use that one anymore (see video below). There used to be a lot of keyword stuffing going on back in the day, so that’s why they stopped using it. Now they rely on other metrics — eg, content, load time, etc. — to find and rank sites.

Tips for Writing Your Meta Tags

i) Describe exactly what’s on a given page, not your WHOLE site. For example, on the page that describes New Media Words’ SEO copywriting services, here’s what my Title and Description tags say:

<title>SEO Content Writing Services for B2B and B2C Businesses. All Copy Is Written by Professional, Native-English Speaking and Writing SEO Copywriters</title>

<meta name=”description” content=”New Media Words provides themed SEO content for websites, blogs, social media sites, etc. All content is 100 percent original by native English speakers/writers.”>

Remember, Google indexes sites page by page, ie, each page is treated as an individual entity. So make sure your tags reflect that.

ii) Be as descriptive as possible. Remember, the description you write is returned in search results. Surfers can actually see it, so you want to be sure it describes accurately what’s on the page so surfers can decide if they want to click on it or not.

iii) Meta tag length: While there is no one correct length for meta tags, it’s considered best to limit them to 160 characters or less. Why? Because that’s when most search engines cut them off.

Some of mine run longer than this, but I’m mindful to put the most important info within the first 160 characters.

iv) Use keywords: Don’t keyword stuff, but do use keywords where possible in your meta tags. That’s what search engines use to find and rank pages, so be sure to get them in within the first 160 characters (not words, CHARACTERS).

As an aside, currently New Media Words ranks on the first page of Google for the keyword phrase “SEO writing company” (without quotes). It’s in the #6 position as of this writing. On Bing, it’s in two spots on the first page — positions #2 and #5.

I point this out because I don’t do any web marketing for New Media Words – no blogging, no article marketing, no pay-per-click – nothing. Now I’m sure my other writings on SEO where I do reference the company (eg, like here in this post) help, but writing the meta tags contributes to the ranking too.

SEO Writing Company: New Media Words

New Media Words has ranked for years for this keyword phrase. And while it’s not terribly competitive, being on the first page of Google for a keyword phrase that returns over 23,000,000 results (and will only grow over time IMO) is helpful when trying to get noticed online.

Even though my site was ugly as all get out and had outdated information before this re-design (here’s the new design), it still got me leads. That’s the power of taking the time to do the behind-the-scenes work like writing your meta tags.

Now that we’ve discussed meta tags in detail, let’s move on to what else I learned as I updated the site.

3. Check Your SEO Service Listings

I offered a lot more services on the old site. But, I realized that some of them were outdated (eg, article marketing and submission), and some I just didn’t sell a lot of, eg, SEO consulting. So, I got rid of those.

When was the last time you updated your SEO writing services? If it’s been a while, take a look at your numbers to see what’s selling – and get rid of unprofitable, low-paying and/or outdated services.

4. Review Your SEO Writing Rates

Piggybacking on the last point, when was the last time you checked your SEO writing rates? Mine had been the same for a while, so I increased them in some areas and lowered them in others.

About Listing Your Rates on Your Freelance Site

I used to list all of my firm’s rates on the site. Now, I just give a beginning range. The reason is, I found myself changing my rates a lot depending on what clients want: eg, are they ordering in bulk; do they want us to conduct keyword research in addition to writing; are they a long-time client I want to extend a discount to; etc.

I still like the idea of listing rates as opposed to not listing them. By listing a minimum, I still give prospects an idea of what our rates are. This way, they can judge if it’s worth it to get in touch with us or not.

5. Add a Photo

This is totally subjective, but I added my photo to the home page. I added it because I looked at some sites and found that those I responded to more were those that showcased photos of people, eg, the founder and/or employees.

SEO can be very cold. For me, seeing the people behind all the gobbledygook, technical speak humanized a business. When prospective clients look for SEO writing, I want them to know who they’re doing business with –- that there’s a real person here who cares about them and their business.

FYI, here’s a post that expounds upon the pros of including a photo of yourself on your site. Freelance SEO writers are “professional services providers,” and I couldn’t agree more with the following assessment:

For those of us in professional services, we are our product. It is “us” that someone is “buying”, so it would make sense that we provide that prospect with as much information as possible for them to make a “buying” decision. Working virtually is now a very common way that many of us with a professional service now operate. We meet our clients over phone calls and work with them via phone and email.

Many of us have many clients that we have never actually meet in person. So the website becomes your sales tool, and you should take advantage of every opportunity for your prospect to feel a connection with you, to see that you are a real person. Establishing trust and credibility is the first step of having a successful website, and by having your photo on your website you have taken that first step.

FYI, this post also gives some great tips on what type of photo to use.

The photo I used went against most of this advice, but as she says, it’s a personal decision. The photo I used is one I happened to take after a dental visit this past December. It’s not professionally shot or anything; it was taken with a camera phone. So don’t think you have to worry about spending money to get a pro to do a photo for you.

If you do choose to put a photo on your site, just make sure that you’re adequately covered and that it has some personality to it (eg, a smile works wonders).

6. Keep It Simple to Stay on the Right Side of Google

If your web design skills are basic (like mine) and you don’t want to hire someone to redesign your site, keep the design simple; don’t try to get all fancy.

I went for a clean design – focusing more on the quality of the content. I looked at a lot of sites while redoing mine and some were pretty awesomely high-gloss and fancy. But you know what? A lot of them were very basic too – even those of seemingly big firms. So don’t be afraid to be basic – as long as it doesn’t look too amateurish.

Also, keep things like Flash and other interactive design elements to a minimum. Why? Because it slows down the load time of a site. And this is extremely important, especially in today’s world where many users access sites via mobile devices. Consider the following:

  • 73% of mobile internet users say that they’ve encountered a website that was too slow to load.
  • 47% of consumers expect a web page to load in 2 seconds or less.
  • 40% of people abandon a website that takes more than 3 seconds to load
  • If an e-commerce site is making $100,000 per day, a 1 second page delay could potentially cost you $2.5 million in lost sales every year.

Also, search engines count load time as one of the metrics they use to rank sites. So load time is important – from a web surfer standpoint, and from an SEO point.

Bonus Web Redesign Tip

If you have a lot of old material on your site, don’t just delete it. The reason is, you never want a prospect to encounter a dead link on your site. That’s earned traffic that you worked hard for, so redirect that traffic (using the Redirect feature in your web hosting control panel) to another page on your site.

I used to have a page on my site entitled “Free SEO Tools & Articles.” I had free reports and articles on that page. A lot of the information was outdated, so I redirected all of those links either to the home page, general service page, or to a specific service page on the site.

For example, if I had an article gave SEO writing tips, I redirected all traffic that came from that link to the SEO Copywriting services page.  See what I mean? No lost traffic.

Conclusion

SEO content writing has constantly evolving rules and practices. Some services become obsolete (eg, article marketing); others emerge (eg, social media marketing) and yet others are unprofitable, so it’s necessary to update your site to remain professional.

My site was looonnnnngggg overdue for an update. I’m embarrassed that it took me so long to get around to it. I’ll never do that again. Now it’s one I’m proud to log onto.

I’ve made my living as an online (SEO) content writer since 2007 — and have trained many others how to start this type of freelance business as well. Are you next?

A Hot Niche for Freelance SEO Content Writers Where There’s Plenty of Work

If you’re a regular reader, you probably know that I’ve talked about how quite a few freelancers keep in touch with me on a regular basis. Many contacted me at the start of their freelance SEO writing careers, and will check in from time to time with questions from clients they may need insight on, to ask a question about something going on in the industry; and/or (my favorite) to share their success.

I’ve been writing search engine-optimized (SEO) content since 2007, and I like to share these stories because it shows not only how the industry has evolved, but how just regular, everyday people who took the plunge fare over an extended time.

SEO Writing Success!

The day before yesterday, I got one of these emails. This freelancer and I have been corresponding since 2009. I can hardly believe it’s been that long, but I went back through my emails and found her initial contact with me – which was in February 2009. My jaw dropped.

I’ve been privy to her ups and downs – from taking the leap from a full-time job into freelancing, to where she is today – developing her own online products and services, all the while still keeping her foot in the SEO copywriting waters.

She contacted me to give me a rundown of what she’s been up to lately; giving me the skinny on a hot niche she discovered where there’s plenty of work, among other insights. Her email really underscores just how much freelance writing work is out there, including one niche you might not have thought of where there’s a lot of work.

Following is her email (interspersed with some notes from me). I hope it inspires you to keep putting yourself out there for work. I’m always saying it (ie, there’s plenty of work out there). Now you get to hear it from someone else as well – someone who’s actually doing it.

One Freelance SEO Content Writer’s Success: This Could Be You Too!

I know you get a lot of aspiring writers asking you all kind of questions as I once did when I was a newbie.

As you know, I have been trying to transition from writing [for clients] to creating my own programs, which are coming along nicely. However, I still take on clients from time to time. Mostly because these are my OG’s [old clients] and I love them; without them my business would not exist. So, I try to pay it forward when I can.

Types of Copywriting Jobs She’s Landed

It got me thinking –that there is still a lot of SEO work to go around. That’s if you are willing to write about the non-sexy topics. So the recent projects I have been doing have included:

Educational company that focuses on Islam and Arabic (I’ve dated enough Middle Eastern men to feel like I am a subject matter expert in this. Tee-hee!)

Painting and home renovation company (focusing on high end luxury homes)

Moving and Storage companies (I have a couple of these)

Personal Injury /Criminal Lawyers: Let me say, I am not a fan of writing legal copy, so I have started to outsource some of it to a Jr. Writer I hired. Lawyers always [seem to] have a lot of work, so even if someone was charging $25-$30 per article, they can make a handsome salary focusing on lawyers alone.

I remember I once had a lawyer literally give me 100 articles a month. The only thing with lawyers is that they are extremely busy! So, it can be difficult to get copy approved, payment on time, etc. If they have a business manager that is their primary point of contact that is ideal.

34 Pages of Copy Needed – It’s Not Sexy, But It Pays the Bills

I just got an email from my OG client and he’s putting together a site so I can work on 34 pages for infrared beams  – or something with infrared – don’t ask me. Lol.

As far as sales copy, I have written sales pages for an IT consultant, and surprisingly enough I have two different clients I write for in the “boost your libido” niche. Two totally different products, but the same end result.

I think I will probably niche myself as a sales Page writer; I am not too sure yet. Even though they are 12 to 15 pages, they are much easier for me to write than a standard 500-1,000-word article. That’s just the way my brain works I guess.

How to Find SEO Writing Jobs: 5 Pieces of Advice from a Busy Freelancer

In a nutshell, I guess I wrote to share with your audience:

1. Partner with SEO firms. If you find the right one, they can keep you busy. I cold-called a guy 9 years ago, and he has referred many clients too me over the years.

2. Lawyers have a great budget and will give you a lot of work. So when a lawyer approaches you don’t get discouraged if he/she wants to pay $35-$40 per blog post/article.

See if you can work out a retainer system with them. There is an art and science to writing for lawyers, and if you think you can handle it, it can turn into a lucrative career working for them alone.

3. Give sales pages a try. I know there are many other things like ebooks, case Studies, etc., but I think I found my sweet spot with sales pages. Depending on the topic, it’s fun to research, easy to write, and you can charge a premium.

Editor note: Sales letter writing is some of the most highly paid freelance copywriting work out there. Here’s an interesting read by one freelancer you will enjoy. He tells you how to guarantee that you earn exactly what you’re worth: Copywriting Fees: “How can I get $5,000+ for writing a sales letter?”

4. Hire a Jr. Writer or two (like you told me before Yuwanda). I cut a deal with a brilliant writer. He’s been writing for a long time, but new to SEO and needs to get some experience under his belt.  So, I put him on a 60 day trial period on an agreed upon rate that works for both of us. And I still make profit.

5. The non-sexy topics can be your bread and butter. I know that writing about health, fitness, love, travel are ideal and can pay well.  I am sure there is a lot of competition for those topics too. However, I don’t see too many people jumping out of bed to write about moving and storage every morning. Lol. So, if they are willing to write about the boring topics, they can make some serious bank!

Editor note: I’ve written tons of SEO articles in my day, and plenty of them were in non-glamorous niches, eg, plumbing, tree-cutting, roofing, office furniture and arctic drilling equipment, to name a few.

Yeah, these types of companies need content too. In fact, as this freelancer pointed out, many of them need lots of content – and probably very few of them are pitched by freelancers because really … who wants to spend their days researching how to unclog drains and cut down trees safely.

3 More Tips for Finding Freelance SEO Writing Work: My Take

Following are a few more things to keep in mind that you can use to land more writing jobs.

1. Use Life Experience: For example, her reference to dating people from different cultures. If you’ve had a particular experience in your life that you could pull from, then use that. For example, I’m intimately familiar with living and working from the Caribbean. It’s a “life experience” I could use to pitch to potential clients, eg, as a travel writer.

Or, maybe you could develop your own products/service around it. I conducted my SEO copywriter training seminar on-site in Jamaica (Negril) in 2014, and wrote an ebook about how to live and work from the Caribbean.

Life experience – never underestimate its value.

2. Become an Outsourcee: As in, reach out to other freelancers who may have work. This writer hires other writers. I have a “go to” team I use, and I know of many other freelancers who routinely hire other writers.

Now, while I don’t think it’s a method of finding freelance gigs you should spend a ton of time on, as I discuss here, but it is a viable way to get some work.

3. Expand Your Skill Set: This freelancer advises giving sales pages a try. There are many different kinds of writing business need these days, and they include everything from simple blog posts, to more in-depth writing like case studies and white papers.

FYI, here’s a list of 30 types of freelance writing jobs; some fall within the SEO writing sector, some don’t. The idea is to get you to thinking, “Hmm, where’s my ‘sweet spot?’” as this freelancer put it.

The SEO Copywriter Training Class: Latest Update

The class consists of five modules. Usually, you have to purchase the whole class – and all modules are sent to you at once to work on at your leisure. Now, however, you can purchase each module separately. You can see exactly what each one entails, so you can pick and choose the one that suits your needs at the moment.

How Much Do SEO Jobs Pay? How about 60-$80K, Or More

As an aside, I don’t check my LinkedIn account very much. Yesterday, I logged in for the first time in a few months. There were two full-time job opportunities there — companies wanting to interview me for full-time positions. And, guess how much they paid?

Both were for SEO Content Management positions. One paid between $60K and 80K; the other between $75K and $80K. Many SEO jobs (like analysts, digital marketing specialists, and search marketing consultants) can pay more — a lot more, especially in big cities.

Why do I point this out? SEO is a highly paid profession — so getting this training and some experience under your belt as a freelancer could set you up for high-paying, FT job opportunities too. I politely declined both, of course, but did let it be known that I was interested in any freelance SEO consulting work their firms might have. Hey, you just never know! 🙂

I hope this week has been a productive one, and that you’re looking forward to the weekend.

5 Types of SEO Writing: Which Ones Should You Provide?

SEO content writing has changed a lot since I started in 2007. Some services are less requested and new ones have come down the pike. Following is some insight on five of the most popular types of SEO writing, including which ones are more requested and more lucrative.

I. SEO Blog Posts

Blog posts are just web articles; only they’re usually shorter. When I first started writing SEO content back in 2007, the average length of a blog post was anywhere from 250 to 400 words or so. Anything longer was considered a regular web article (aka foundational post, cornerstone content, link-bait article, in-depth content).

Nowadays, the trend is towards longer content — articles in the 1,000 to 2,000 word range (yeah, times have changed thanks to Google and its consistent algorithm changes). Proof? Consider the following

Back in 2012, serpIQ conducted a study involving more than 20,000 keywords. The results showed that the average content length of each of the top 10 results was more than 2,000 words. The average number of words for the content in the #1 spot was 2,416. For the #10 spot, the average number of words was 2,032. That evidence is fairly conclusive. If you want your articles to rank well, consider using long-form content.

So what was once considered a special report or even a short ebook is now just foundational content. Regular blog posts run in the 500 to 700-word range; anything shorter would be considered a mini blog post – good for social media posting, but not for your website or blog – that is, if your goal is to increase traffic and sales.

II. Foundational Web Articles

As referred to above, these are just like blog posts, only longer and more in-depth.

Types of SEO ContentThe trend towards long-form content started back with Google’s Hummingbird update, which was all about moving away from just keyword-driven search results, to focusing on the meaning behind the words.

Hummingbird aimed to ensure that a web searcher’s entire query was taken into account, not just a few (key) words within the query. This update was clearly meant to address the fact that more and more users are searching for content using mobile devices, and many of them do so using voice activation – speaking in complete sentences (ie, “a conversational” search), instead of typing in a few keywords.

The post, FAQ: All About The New Google “Hummingbird” Algorithm on Search Engine Land explains how this impacts search results, stating:

“Conversational search” is one of the biggest examples Google gave. People, when speaking searches, may find it more useful to have a conversation.

“What’s the closest place to buy the iPhone 5s to my home?” A traditional search engine might focus on finding matches for words — finding a page that says “buy” and “iPhone 5s,” for example.

Hummingbird should better focus on the meaning behind the words. It may better understand the actual location of your home, if you’ve shared that with Google. It might understand that “place” means you want a brick-and-mortar store. It might get that “iPhone 5s” is a particular type of electronic device carried by certain stores. Knowing all these meanings may help Google go beyond just finding pages with matching words.

As you can see, it’s a much more nuanced way of returning results than just by keywords. It’s hard to do that in a 400 or 500-word post.

How Google’s Hummingbird Algorithm Forced Content to Get Longer

By writing longer posts, you answer a myriad of questions that a web surfer may have about a particular topic.

I’ve always been a pretty wordy writer. Most of my posts fall in the 700-1,200 word range. But lately, I’ve been writing even longer posts –as you can see by the last few here and on this sites’ parent blog, InkwellEditorial.com, ie:

SEO Writing vs. Social Media Consulting: Which Is More Lucrative? Over 1,400 words

Writing Addictive SEO Content: 13 Must-Know Tips for Creating it – Now! Over 2,400 words

How to Land a Traditional Publishing Contract as a Freelance Writer: 5 Keys: Over 2,200 words

Becoming a Freelance Writer: How to Smoothly Transition from a Full-time Job — An In-Depth Discussion: Over 2,800 words

Longer content gives you enough space to answer a myriad of questions that users may have regarding a topic. Hence, it makes it more valuable to the web surfer, who is more likely to bookmark it to come back to; share it with other readers; and act on it.

In Google’s eyes, this is what the web is all about – giving web surfers helpful, usable content. Hence, they reward it.

While it is more time consuming to sit down and grind out a 2,000 word post, as opposed to banging out a 500-word one, as a freelancer, it’s good news in that you can charge more for this type of SEO content.

III. Landing Pages

Let’s first define this term, in case you don’t know what it is.

Technically, a landing page is any page you “land on” when you click through to a site. However, as used by internet marketers, it’s much more nuanced than that. The article, What Is a Landing Page? [FAQs] on HubSpot’s blog, explains it best, stating:

… a “landing page” is any page on the web on which one might land that 1) has a form and 2) exists solely to capture a visitor’s information through that form. In other words, all landing pages are web pages, but not all web pages are landing pages.

Landing pages are used a lot by internet marketers to grow their mailing lists – so that they can sell their products and services to a defined group of interested parties over a long period of time.

They’re very effective because they usually offer some type of freebie to entice a web visitor to give their email address. And this is why they need to be properly SEO’d – so that when web surfers search for a particular product/service in a defined niche, the site pops up in search results.

Writing a landing page can be some of the most challenging SEO content you’ll write, because it has so many nuances to it. It’s why it’s one of the higher-paying writing jobs in the digital age.

Like most forms of freelance writing, rates for writing landing pages are all over the place – from a few hundred dollars, on up to a few thousand. To determine how much to charge, I advise researching what others in your niche are charging for this service, how much ongoing work you might be required to do (eg, provide updates), and what the overall goal for the landing page is (eg, to capture leads, make a purchase, make a call, etc.).

See why they can be quite complex, hence, high-paying, to write?

IV. SEO Press Releases

My clients don’t request these nearly as much as they used to, but there’s still a place in SEO – for certain types of businesses – for SEO’d press releases. Usually, these are used by larger firms.

What is a SEO’d Press Release?

It’s simply a press release that’s been optimized with certain keywords and phrases to show up in search results. And in case you’re wondering, “Why would someone SEO a press release?” It’s simple. Google thinks it’s important, as explained in-depth in this article on the history of Google, SEO and how the search giant has treated press releases.

The reality is, any type of content you release on the web should be written with SEO in mind – that is if you’re a for-profit enterprise and care about ranking well – even pretty straightforward, usually non-actionable content like press releases. But be sure to adhere to Google’s SEO guidelines for each type of content you’re producing, so that all your hard work is not for naught.

V. Social Media Writing

These types of posts can be long or short. I tend to do an intro on my Facebook page, for example, then direct the reader to a link on my website with the content of the full post (if it’s for a blog post I’ve written).

Tips for SEOing Social Media Posts

a) If you don’t have a longer post to direct readers to, be sure to use relevant hash tags so that surfers on a social media site can easily find your content;

b) Use relevant search keywords in the title/headlines of your posts;

c) Make your content easily shareable by using “Share” buttons on your website; and

d) Use your business name in your posts: Why? It will help Google associate the keywords you use to describe your business with your business’s name, especially if you do it regularly.

Here are some more great tips for SEOing your social media posts. Be sure to use them, and pass them along to your SEO writing clients. Social media is an integral part of SEO writing now; the two cannot be divorced from one another.

By making your clients aware of how important social media is to the success of their content, you can add another revenue stream to your SEO writing business – social media writing.

Which of These SEO Writing Services Should You Be Offering as a Freelancer?

When I first started in 2007, I only offered one of these – web articles (foundational content). Pretty soon thereafter (within a few months), I started offering blog posts, because so many clients were requesting them.

It was a while before I offered press release writing and landing pages. I haven’t written a whole bunch of these – at least not for clients (I write them for my own affiliate marketing sites). Social media writing and account management has become a more in-demand service these last two years – and I see it being an ever bigger part of my SEO writing business in the future.

If I were a new freelance SEO writer, I would definitely offer blog posts, foundational content and social media writing posting. These are what clients are clamoring for right now – they are the meat and potatoes services most clients will expect you to offer.

You can always add on other service as you grow.

Final Thoughts

The trend is toward longer content, so be sure to charge appropriately for it.

Social media account management is a pretty straightforward upsell. It’s an add-on service I think every freelance SEO writer should offer, simply because it goes hand-in-hand with SEO writing these days. Don’t leave money on the table. If you write the content, why not earn a few extra bucks by distributing it via social media for clients?
