Running a freelance writing business gets hectic, so writers need effective ways to automate workflow and create more billable time. Using WordPress for writer's website, with a few well-selected plugins like this, is a good start.
— Freelance writers are always on the lookout for ways to add value and improve service, yet keep their expenses in check. Until now, many freelance writers' websites were not much more than online business cards, used only to display rates, services and a few writing samples.
With the launch of the MemberGenius plugin for WordPress, freelance writers can easily expand their sites for better client service. At $27 for a single site license, the plugin is affordable for even a beginning freelancer.
"Adding a membership component to my own freelance site has been on my to-do list for about 3 years. But until now, the price and amount of time needed for a complex installation held me back," says A.C. Hill, owner of WorkAtHomeWriting.com, a membership site that has served as a resource for freelance writers since 2012. "The price is right, and installation is simple!"
The plugin allows on-site password protected private communication between the writer and the client. This ensures that all communication is in one place, where both parties can easily access it.
Rather than paying a subscription fee to a site like BaseCamp, the writer can make content available for clients to access at their convenience, at any time of day or night,.
The writer can also provide any other kind of password protected content that can be published on WordPress. This could include tutorial articles, videos that are only available to paying clients, questionnaires, surveys, templates, etc.
"I'm still discovering creative ways to use it to streamline my workflow," added Hill.
The plugin is available in two personal-use versions: a single site license, and an unlimited site license that allows the purchaser to install it on any number of self-hosted domains, as long as they belong to that same owner.
A.C. Hill has been a freelance web writer since 2008. She launched http://WorkAtHomeWriting.com in 2012 to help shorten the learning curve for writers who are just starting their freelance careers.
