Sometimes it drops into your lap and other times it seems as though the world is conspiring against you...
I thought it might be helpful if we shared our experiences of other sites - good or bad - so for starters, here is a press release that I got sent a few days back ( see below) about a new proof reading job site. Has anyone else had any dealings with them?
My name's Nick and I run Find A Proofreader, a UK directory for proofreaders, editors, copywriters and anyone else who works with words. I found your details online and wanted to make you aware of our site in case you'd like to become a member.
Find A Proofreader is a niche business directory aimed at proofreaders, editors, copywriters, indexers and other professionals working with words. We enjoy high Google rankings and we receive requests for quotes from visitors on a regular basis. The price to join our site? Just £20 per year.
So what makes us different from the other freelancer directories out there?
Well, in addition to increasing your online presence through your listing, you can get your customers to write reviews of your service, adding credibility to your profile and giving you further exposure (the latest reviews feature in the sidebar of each page of the site).
You can also write articles for our Articles page. This will give you even greater exposure in the search engines as our site ranks highly and, because it's built in WordPress, the articles are indexed quickly.
Please take a look at the site when you have a few minutes and let me know if you're interested in growing your online presence with our directory. If you have any queries, please email me and I'll be happy to help.
Many thanks for your time and have a lovely weekend!
