REGISTRATION

Primarily the site's function is that of a directory. However, should a potential client decide to post a project, instead of contacting freelancers direct, then all freelancers will be notified by e-mail of such a project and invited to submit a bid.

Freelance-Proofreaders.co.uk is a manual site, not a database driven one. So, when you make any requests to the site you know that you are actually dealing with a person. Any e-mails you receive from Freelance-Proofreaders.co.uk are personally written, not generated by a database!

There are many reasons why you may want to consider registering your services at Freelance-Proofreaders.co.uk.

Already your own boss?

You may already be working freelance. Perhaps you've set yourself up with an office at home. Or perhaps you're a small company operating from small business premises. Are you looking to expand your existing client base? Perhaps you don't have a web site, but would like the exposure that the Internet can offer. Freelance-Proofreaders.co.uk can resolve that problem for you by giving you a presence on the Internet. You have your own web site but no-one can find it? A link from Freelance-Proofreaders.co.uk can help boost its search engine rankings. Whatever your reasons, Freelance-Proofreaders.co.uk is here to help you promote yourself and the services that you provide to potential clients via the web.

Many of those using our website are established freelancers and, for example, members of the Society for Freelance Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP). Equally, however, the site has assisted many new editors and proofreaders, or those with intermediate-level experience, to develop their client-base.

Just starting out?

The Internet has created an increasing number of opportunities for people who work from home. You can happily be sitting in your home in Florida, or wherever, and your client may live in Australia, Sweden, China. Distance is no object. The Internet is your window of opportunity and with the help of Freelance-Proofreaders.co.uk you can market yourself and your work to potential clients.

Your web page at Freelance-Proofreaders.co.uk

The information provided on your registration form is used to create your entry at Freelance-Proofreaders.co.uk. Therefore it is wise that you carefully think about what you want to say on the registration form, before you actually start to complete it. The form has three main areas:

  • Contact Details
    Think about what contact details you wish to be displayed on your web page. You have the option to display some or all of the following:
    • Your display name, eg 'The Right Writer' or simply 'John Smith'. The display name will be used throughout the site in the various directories, and will be used to link to your own web page at Freelance-Proofreaders.co.uk - so make sure you think about this carefully
    • Your name
    • Location
    • Telephone number(s)
    • Your e-mail address - which is hyperlinked
    • Your own web site (if you have one) - which is hyperlinked

  • Overview
    This is basically just a brief list of the services that you provide, eg Word Processing, Databases, etc, etc.

  • Services Provided and Experience
    These are the areas where you really need to sell yourself. What we suggest is that you type up what you want to say first, then when you're confident you're going to get your message across, you can cut and paste the document into the Services Provided/Experience section. We would recommend that you don't waffle on too much. Bullet points get the message across effectively - you don't want to bore your potential clients by making them read an essay! Although a nice little sign-off paragraph can go down well - it gives you an opportunity to try and get your personality across, and believe us when we say that 'personality' sells!

Images/Logos
If you require any logos or images to be inserted on your page, then simply e-mail them to us separately, clearly stating who you are.

Payment
We accept payment by Paypal. Upon submission of your registration form you will be automatically redirected to the payment page. To advertise your services at Freelance Proofreaders costs £85.00 per annum.
