Useful links for marketing your freelance translation business

I will continue on my marketing focus a bit more. During my quest to become an entrepreneurial linguist I have stumbled upon a few web resources that I found very useful. Here are some of them:

Shoestring Marketing – tips for free marketing

Free press release – write and publish press releases for free

The Wealthy Freelancer – lots of business tips for freelancers

Mombizcoach – for all of you who try to balance being a mom and an entrepreneur

SEO Wizardry – a blog with tons of tips on how to use social media

Rescue time - a nifty little tool for all of you who get sucked in to all the social media, you are using, email or just browsing. This will keep track of what you spend your time on and if you choose the paid version you can set the program to block you from certain things on the web during certain time periods.

Keepass - a free open-source password manager for all the passwords we have these days

Mozy - online backup of your computer, free or low cost, easy to manage and does not suck your memory or hard drive while backing up.

I also know a lot of great translator bloggers that I will share later on. Do you have any sites where you find useful business information? Please share!

  1. Hi Tess,

    KeePass is a great password manager, but the correct website is The .com domain is just a parasite.
