Top 5 Self-Promotion Articles
Self-promotion is something a freelancer needs, to get a gig, land a client and to be successful. Sometimes this requires a whole lot of promotion, but is there an easy way and a hard way? In my experience, the hard way is to let the time take it’s course. Something important a freelancer needs to consider for promoting himself is to always be careful on how you promote. You should never join a forum, community or any other site like that for just posting a link to your work – you might get considered as a spammer. Which will lose you clients and destroy the reputation you’ve already worked so hard to build up. These articles I’ve collected throughout some time, might be able to help you get started or to evolve your self-promotion.
