Boost Your Blog #10: Create a Hire Me Page

Continuing our discussion of things you should be doing right now to improve your blog, today’s tip is:

10. Create a Hire Me page

This won’t relate to all bloggers but if you have a skill or service that you can offer your readers, don’t just assume that they’ll come knocking. Sometimes they need to see that you offer a service and hear about what it would entail.

A page linked prominently on your blog that shows the needs you’re able to help with, and outlines how the service might work (the costs and logistics) could be something that drives you significant income over the long term. Hat tip to Chris Garrett for this suggestion.

Does your blog have a Hire Me page? If not, should it?

  2. Wasim Ismail says:

    I created mine couple of months ago, and its working well. Should have done it long time ago.

  3. Tom says:

    I’ve thought about the hire me service but will put this into place afer my ebook.

  4. Techmaker says:

    I never thought about it.
    Frankly I don’t have much idea on “Hire me” page. So can you explain me the purpose of a Hire ME page and can use show me a DEMO.

    Thanks for your time
    Good luck

    Instead of asking your readers to mail you for professional service or some inquiry, I think the ‘Hire Me’ page will work better. If a blog or site is providing some sort of a professional service, this idea can really be a boost.

  6. I will be creating mine as soon as I am ready to offer my services. Thanks for that Georgina.

  7. Jennifer says:

    Thanks for your great tip, Georgina. I will be creating my page soon.

    A few examples of or testimonials might help to, as long as they are legit and not exaggerated. People like to see what others have said, or what kind of work you have done in the past. Not totally necessary, but it can help.

  9. Kellen says:

    I don’t have services for hire, but I do have an “advertise here” section where potential advertisers can see that I’m open to offers, and what my base rates are.

  10. Oh, who would hire me! Come on, be serious!

  11. Sophia says:

    Good tip, Georgina. It is useful to read how to make your page more focused.

  12. Claire says:

    That’s an interesting idea… I might try it: I can write for starters! I have been asked a couple of times to review websites, make websites and write copy for sites even.

    I think you’ve planted a seed for me there Georgina. Thank you!

  13. I really like this idea so I created my “Hire Megan” page today. Go take a look: http://www.meganhuntlaw.com/hire-megan/

    Once I have some idea how well it works, I’ll come back and post my results.
