Selling Your Professional Services on the Web
eBook by Alex Eames
You know how, when you look at a translation you did 2 or 3 years ago, you think to yourself...
"I could do that SO much better now"
...well it's the same with writing eBooks. A couple of years ago I wrote...
How to Earn $80,000+ Per Year as a
...which has become the business handbook for freelance translators. My latest eBook...
...takes things to a new level. It's all about how to use the web to sell more of your services.
I get a lot of emails from people saying how much they liked my first eBook and how much it helped them -- so many that I find it impossible to keep updating the testimonials page in a timely manner.

A Couple of Other People's Opinions...
Will It Help Me Find Direct Clients?
In the translatortips® forums, Wolfgang, one of our members asked...
...then Wolfgang replied...
Our Survey Said... YES
In February 2001 we ran a survey that was answered by 1190 freelance translators around the world. It was one single question...
What is your BEST internet source of translation work?
5% of the responses chose their own web site as their best source of work.
But that was more than 2 years ago. The fact that anybody chose their own web site as their best source of work shows you that this is a very important way of attracting clients.
Now, a couple of years later, most top earning translators agree that their web site is their best source of new clients. These are the people who are getting it right. You can become one of them by using my techniques.
Getting New Clients - Most Common Problem
In another survey we recently asked translators...
What are your main frustrations and problems?
One of the most common answers was...
...well here's the good news. If you build a good web site according to my methods, your need for marketing by these traditional methods will greatly decrease. I can't promise that you won't have to do any other marketing. That depends how well you implement the strategies in...
...but there is nothing difficult about it, once you know how.
It's What You Do With It
Just having a 'brochure', 'CV' or 'résumé' type site is no longer adequate. You must have a site that makes your prospects want to hire you - gets them to pick up the phone and call you in a ready to order state of mind. Sounds great, but...
How Do You Do That?
Put simply, you have to get it right. You need...
...each of these is a huge subject and many publications have been written about them. I know because I've read most of them while building my online business. But none of these publications will tell you about selling professional services on the web. Why not? Because most people are like Wolfgang. Those who are successfully selling services on the web are either...
...which is one of the reasons it took so long to get this ebook published. I've been too busy. I started writing it 3½ years ago, and had to update several parts because things changed while the ebook was in progress.
How Will it Help Me Sell My Translation Services?
Selling Your Professional Services on the Web will give you clear ideas of what you need to do in order to...
...because they feel comfortable with YOU. This is the key to selling on the web.
Selling Your Professional Services on the Web will show you how to make your site visitors...
...so you can get more clients, who pay better, and then pick and choose who you work for.
Will it Help Me Find Agencies, Direct Clients, or Both?
Both. But most of the clients coming to you using these methods will be direct clients. This means that you can charge them higher rates because you have 'cut out the middle-man'.
But you can have the best of both worlds if you have a separate area of your site aimed at agencies. (You may choose not to if you get enough direct clients.)
I've Already Got a Web Site, Why do I Need this eBook?
If your web site already generates many quality leads per week, resulting in thousands of dollars a year in sales, you may not need Selling Your Professional Services on the Web.
But even then, you will gain ideas that could turn a good income-producing site into an excellent one.
If your site does not yet 'produce the goods', Selling Your Professional Services on the Web will show you how to change it so that it does.
Do I Need Technical Skills?
No you don't. If you already have them, great. But if you don't, Selling Your Professional Services on the Web will show you how you can build a great service-selling site with no technical skills at all.
What Will My Return Be?
That's a tough one to answer. It depends how much you put into implementing the strategies and ideas in Selling Your Professional Services on the Web.
But think of your average translation project. For us, an average project brings in ~£200 (~$320). One such project per week would bring in over £10,000 (~$16,000) per year of new revenue.
Of course, I can't guarantee that. But I can guarantee that you'll get a full refund if you feel this ebook has not benefitted your business within 12 months.
