Much to my utter amazement, at least a quarter of the blogs and sites provided no easy way for me to email them. The first site I ran into which led me around and around trying to find an email address got me to quickly write a contact page for this site. And I’ve made it as obvious as I can.
Sure, in the flury of putting a site together, it’s easy to overlook something as basic as a contact me page. So I suggest you look at your own site right now and see if there’s a way for a potential client to phone or email you. If you discover it’s hard to find, make the needed changes right now.
Some don’t like to put phone numbers on their websites. I’ve done it for years and never really had a problem. If I’ve gotten crank calls, and I’m not sure I have, I just hang up. Usually, however, it’s a potential writing client that’s calling. Getting new clients for writing and/or coaching is the main reason I have websites and I blog.
Some fear putting their email address in an obvious place because of spam. You can’t hide from spam, but you can filter it and delete it. Far better to have spam and get clients then hide and get no clients.
