Coming Up March 14: Marketing Yourself Follow-Up—Create Your To-Do List

Given the large turnout and positive response to our January get-together, which focused on marketing yourself as an editor, we’re dedicating our March 14 evening to a follow-up session with a workshop format.

We’ll supply six worksheets from Adrienne Montgomerie’s book, Freelance Marketing Action Plan for Editors (enough copies to go around this time!). These worksheets will help you to

  • describe your ideal client
  • craft an “elevator pitch”
  • present yourself to new clients (cold calling)
  • decide what conferences to attend to meet clients and colleagues
  • chart your path on social media
  • create your own “To Do” list

We’ll spend some time working on our own, in small groups, and all together. Thanks to Adrienne for kindly giving Editors Kingston permission to use this material.

You’ll go home with a great start on developing a practical, doable, personalized plan for marketing your editing and related services.

This activity is not just for freelancers! People who have, or hope to have, full- or part-time jobs also benefit from doing ongoing marketing to reach their goals.

Note: Adrienne’s workbook is a work in progress and is not yet available for purchase as a stand-alone book. It is, however, included as part of Adrienne’s online course on marketing, available through Copyediting.com.
