Realizing the fact that catching content runs the whole system of sharing data makes people with no specialization in writing successful.
In this article, we'll explain how can practicing tutors add up to their budget with content writing and achieve a perfect balance like other successful people with a few roles to juggle.
Create a few posts connected to the area of your specialization
For those who are complete novices in content writing, I recommend starting with one or two posts. Begin with describing who you are and what you have achieved during the tutoring practice. The first post you create may seem too general and sound like another story for the housewife magazine. However, these posts will finally help you figure out topics and prompts you will utilize in your future articles. After you describe your expertise, you can get down to the actual writing of your first post to submit to the potential customer.
This time you should be more specific and develop one or two generated ideas. Hence, you should come up with the topics that will grab the particular audience’s attention - tutors like you, college students, learners who combine both work and studying, etc. It’s essential to know whom you address before even crafting a title of the post. Develop a habit to create concise and informative posts filled with interesting facts and unmatched guidelines.
Try yourself as an outreacher
After you develop a post or even a couple of articles, you can offer them to the related blogs that offer free publishing options. However, before the actual submission, double-check your post to be sure it’s free from typos and minor mistakes. Many editors become irritated with low-quality articles and sometimes do not give novices another chance to place a pitch.
This second step can become a perfect chance to form your portfolio gathering a few links of authoritative platforms where your name is displayed as an author with the background. However, if you are a practicing ESL tutor and have little time to engage bloggers with your works, I do recommend to get down to the next step.
Place your profile on one of the freelance websites
Searching for potential clients who can provide you with new orders should take fewer efforts if you have a well-written portfolio and already published works. On the other hand, novices can also find their first orders through such websites as Freelancer, ContentMart, UpWork, etc. For this, you will need to work on your portfolio to elaborate a catching description of your skills and profound writing potential. It is also important to check the client who contacted you from the mentioned websites. Be sure to find out such details as the name of the company as well its representative’s name. Always ask whether the client agrees for the charges you’ve displayed together with your profile. Finally, ensure the client is serious about the order and agrees on the specified deadlines.
Utilize your background to create valuable content and start the long-term cooperation
One or two reliable clients are enough to add up a good sum of money to your budget. Usually such tutoring services as Preply search for reliable freelance content creators who can sustain their marketing strategy. Therefore, you can either allocate your free time for searching potential clients among other tutoring services or wait until clients contact you from the freelance websites.
Anyway, developing valuable content should be your main priority since its quality and usefulness can make you a high-paid content creator in the long run. Besides, it’s important to enrich your methodology with other tutors’ best practices which you can find on their personal blogs or simply communicating with your colleagues.
Practice what you write in your posts
It’s essential to actually implement all those tutoring approaches, and methods you preach to other educators. First of all, this will help you build up expertise on particular issues and you will be able to provide good answers to your readers both in posts and comments to them. Besides, it will serve as a perfect source of new prompts for posts and allow you developing better lessons with their help.
