Day 18

Direct Message Five Peers

Time to connect with your fellow writer friends! LinkedIn is all about connections and collaboration, and the freelance writers’ community is an incredible powerhouse of support and motivation. Writers share referrals, talk about their struggles, and celebrate each other’s wins.

So today, reach out to five freelance copywriters. Break the ice with a question or compliment. Ask what interesting projects they’ve been working on and share how work’s going for you.

Day 19

Connect with Industry Influencers

Did you know Day 19 of any habit-building is called Quitter’s Day?

Well, not for you. Look at you go!

I’m sure there are content marketers, freelance writers, or copywriters you admire for their work. It’s time to share your genuine admiration of their work and express your desire to learn from them and collaborate with them. Connect with five industry influencers today. Here’s what to say:

“Hi <name>, I’ve been following your work for a long time. I specifically loved the piece you wrote for <mention a piece they have written>. I’d love to stay in touch with you here. And if you’re ever looking for a copywriter to outsource to, I’d love to collaborate with you.”

Day 20

Build Your Content Inspiration Bank

Your LinkedIn feed is a gold mine of content ideas. Seeing what others are posting/talking about can help you derive creative inspiration when you’re running low.

Scroll on your feed and save posts that catch your eye. Look for unique post structures, enticing hooks, or captivating subject matters. For instance, I like this post for how punchy yet value-packed it is. And I’d love to recreate it for my own business.

Search your ideal companies/people on LinkedIn by typing in keywords like content manager, marketing manager, content marketing executive, etc. Next, click on the People tab.

You’re doing awesome. Chances are your ideal clients have started noticing you!

Day 22

Connect with Your Prospects

Send a personalized connection request to the prospects you shortlisted the other day. Consider it as a welcome message instead of an unwanted cold pitch. You never know, your prospects may be looking for a writer.

“Hi <name>, do you engage freelance writers at your org? I specialize in <industry> and offer <services> to companies such as <past clients>. I’d love to connect with you either way.”

If you aren’t comfortable being so direct, simply introduce yourselves without asking for collaboration.

Day 23

Comment on Your Prospects’ Posts

As you pressed the bell on your prospects’ profiles the other day, you’ll get notified whenever they post. Engage with their content today and stay top-of-mind. Leave thoughtful comments, share insights, or even drop a GIF for a touch of fun.

Day 24

Write Your Next Post and Publish

By now, you have a good idea of your content’s direction and a bank of saved posts you can use to write your own. So, pick a content bucket and write your next post with the goal of making it save-worthy. Add so much actionable value that your audience wants to save it for later reference.

Day 27

Comment on Five Posts

Today, find five posts to comment on under hashtags of your choice. For example, if you’re a content writer, you can search #content, #contentmarketing, or #contentstrategy on LinkedIn and then choose the Posts tab to see all the content under that hashtag. Challenge yourself to leave comments that forward the narrative in the post.
