Setting Out Bait Online

Written by Marcia Yudkin

In 1995 I created and distributed a free document called Frequently Asked Questions about Freelance Writing, orrepparttar Freelance Writing FAQ. (http://www.yudkin.com/flfaq.htm) I've updated it several times since then and allowed anyone to post it at their Web site without a fee. That FAQ has done more than anything else to keep my 1988 book Freelance Writing for Magazines & Newspapers from HarperCollins in print. The last time I checked, my FAQ was posted at more than a dozen Web sites and linked from scores of others, as well as recommended in numerous books and magazines.

Withrepparttar 125105 maturing ofrepparttar 125106 Web,repparttar 125107 strategy of setting out free bait for your target market has become more and more powerful. Here's how and why it works, and some non-obvious ways to makerepparttar 125108 most ofrepparttar 125109 bait you create.

Onrepparttar 125110 Internet, people are ravenous for information. Correspondingly, lots of sites find it in their interest to point their visitors torepparttar 125111 best resources available in their topic area. If you can create a mostly unpromotional informational piece and make it available with minimal strings attached, you'll find complete strangers publicizing and distributing it to your benefit. Really!

In a nutshell, start by asking what data or advice would be of value torepparttar 125112 group of people you want to attract as product buyers or clients. Search to see what's already available on that topic, so you don't spend your energy satisfying a thirst that's already been slaked. Create something authoritative onrepparttar 125113 topic that unobtrusively establishes you, your company or your product as serving that market. Then set out your bait online with explicit permission for people to spread it widely.

I concocted my FAQ after interviewing a law student named Terry Carroll who said that his FAQ on copyright law had made him a minor celebrity with respect torepparttar 125115 topic and helped him land his first job as an attorney. Since I'd been teaching classes on freelance writing for years, I knew all questions beginning writers had, and their answers. Followingrepparttar 125116 format of other FAQs I looked at, I organized 24 commonly asked questions into five categories and did my best to keeprepparttar 125117 answers concise.
