First, pitch your­self at a fixed rate. But if you’re just start­ing and you can afford a free tip, invest in one or two sam­ple trips for clients.
  2. Use afford­able SEO ser­vices. If and when you can afford them, use them. This doesn’t mean ded­i­cat­ing a giant bud­get to SEO and mar­ket­ing.

  5. Con­sid­er SEO con­sul­tants. Maybe you’ve got a friend in the indus­try, a busi­ness peer with whom you could trade ser­vices or maybe, it’s time to invest in someone’s opin­ion. A con­sul­tant can help point out where you are excelling and where your and neglect­ing SEO tac­tics.
  6. Keep going. It’s last, but it’s so not least. Don’t give up. Keep writ­ing. Keep prac­tic­ing your craft. Keep show­ing your audi­ence that this is your life and this is why they should care about your voice. Stay in the game and the are­na becomes your stage.
