How to boost your Copywriter Collective profile?
1) Be shown first in organic search results
Have you linked to one of your profiles on your own website? It’s important to boost your profile. In the search results, the engines pick one profile to show first. The one with the most backlinks. So start pushing your profile and getting more work. ACTION: Put a link to your profile on your website, Linkedin, Facebook, Twitter. (Time it takes: 10 minutes.)
2) Have quotes and recommendations on your profile
A few words from a satisfied client on your profile will make a big difference to whether you get hired for a job or not. Maybe you already have one on your own website. Add it to your Collective profile. ACTION: Ask a few clients for a quote for your profile. (10 minutes)
3) Write a blog post
