Today is the day that I started marketing myself and my abilities. I received an offer to be an insurance salesman (I think we all get those) and I responded by telling them how I can improve their website with local news articles and daily blogs. I posted an ad on craigslist.org to sell myself as a blog writer and I have written down a plan of attack. The severance package from my last job is running out and I don’t want to sit on unemployment so now if the time to truly act. I have a portfolio of unpublished writings. I have one published blog I can lay claim to and several ghost blogs (unfortunately I can’t claim them). I also have the Engineering firm in Dubai I am ghosting for.
My main selling point will have to be my personal marketing, how I sell myself to prospective clients. I need to work on my sales pitch, but at least I have started it. Tomorrows task will be streamlining the resume so I can put it up here and start pushing my marketing.
