I just spent considerable time over at the Book Trends Blog trying to figure out who writes it so I could give credit where credit is due. (By the way, the last update seems to be Feb. 12, 2013, but even though it’s no longer being updated, the point is still the same.)
Unless I’ve just missed it, there is no contact information there. I finally found an obscure reference to the name Bob Spear and then realized that name is also part of the URL. Even worse is there’s no obvious way to contact him.
I have no clue what Bob wants from his blog, but I can tell you this. If I’d wanted to hire him to do some writing I probably would have left long before I figured out what his name is.
How Can They Find You?
If you’ve got a website go to it right now and pretend you’re a total stranger looking at your site for the very first time. Pretend too that you’re actually looking for a writer that writes the kind of stuff you do.
How easy is it for this potential client to find you there on your own site? And remember, you know where your contact information is.
A good example is right at the top of this page, and every page on this blog. There is both an About Anne tab and a Contact Anne tab. On the About page has both an email address for me (and without making it difficult to click or just copy in spite of the fact I may get more spam) and a link to my contact page. My contact page gives you several ways to contact me.
I Need To Do A Better Job
Over at www.annewayman.com you’ll find a contact button right there in the top menu. It leads to both my email and my phone number. Yes, I get calls from potential clients.
If you don’t yet have a website you probably need to read: You’re a Writer – You Need a Website or Better Yet, Your Own Blog
How easy is it for clients to contact you? Take a look, come back and tell us in comments.
