How to Sell Blog Posts Before You Write Them

Did you know this was possible? It is. I've been doing it for a few months now (you don't think I tell you every secret in my marketing arsenal right away, do you!)

My blog post over at today explains how I go about it -- and how you can too. Imagine, preselling blog posts -- talking about grabbing money out of thin air :-) Enjoy the post.

Have a Burning Freelance Writing Question? I'm devoting the next issue of the newsletter (6/25) to questions from readers. So, if you have a question you want to ask me, send it in. I'll answer as many as I can (in truth, I'll try to get to all of them). If I don't have the answer, I'll tap some of my sources (time permitting).

If you've been wondering about a particular niche on freelance writing, have a marketing question, a how to deal with a client question, a pricing question -- anything on freelance writing (or blogging), just send it in. You can remain anonymous if you want.

Article Marketing Contest Update: Yesterday, no article posting. Today I posted the article, How to Get a Job in a Slow Economy to Want to know more about article marketing? Click here.

Note: Although this article may seem a little off track for freelance writers, it really isn't because so many start part-time, hence are still active job seekers. Another reason I chose this article is that it is forever green content. Every site should have a stockpile of content like this on their site to drive traffic. I wrote this article originally in 2005, I think. Yet, it remains extremely relevant whenever the economy is in the tank (like it is now, no matter what Washington is saying!).
