The Benefits of Blogging for a Creative Freelancer

Updated: Jan 19, 2023

Have you ever thought about writing a blog? It can seem like a daunting task if writing isn’t your thing or you don’t have the time, but a professional blog is a great way of promoting yourself and your business. Here are some reasons why freelancers should consider starting a blog.

A cheap marketing tool

While you will have to dedicate some time and maybe a little bit of money, depending on which website you go for, writing a blog is a great way of promoting your business and service. Much cheaper than paying for an advert or a flyer, and you have full control over the content and design.

Promotes your skills

You can use your blog to show off your skills and provide more information to current and potential clients about your experience and knowledge. Case studies of previous work are a great way of showing off what you can do and how you made a project a success.

Spreads the word

Use your blog to announce any new products and services. Maybe you’ve recently done some new training or you are expanding your business - you can announce this on your blog and help spread the word.

Inspire new clients

Your website is the place where potential clients can read about you, but if you write a blog it can help them get to know you even better. If someone is undecided about working with you, this can really make a difference to whether you get the new business or not.

Helps reach new audiences

If you want to be found easily on search engines, your website should have regular content. A blog is a great way of doing this and will prevent your website going unnoticed. New content will increase your chances of your business reaching new audiences, which could lead to new opportunities.

Builds authority

Use your experience and knowledge to educate and advise your readers. This can help position you as an expert in your field.
