started networking, and started blogging.
Blogging sounded a bit scary at the beginning but I decided to start writing, anyway. I started recently, but from the get go I can say that it is an efficient way to get yourself noticed, to generate traffic to your website, to gain knowledge, and to networking.
On my blog, I share my experience, stumbles, recommendations and expertise with other translators looking forward to learning from their experience as well. I did it all by myself and I use everything that I find online to get inspiration to write. I started with a couple of blog posts where I recommend other blogs that offer a great deal of information and guidance for new translators and another on how to set up a business email. I hope that I can give valuable information for new translators by sharing with them what I have learned all those years.
I also want to attract direct customers. To get there, I am working on a series of posts with useful information about translations for non-translators. I will offer all sorts of information about the translation business, how translators work, how to hire them, how much does translation costs, etc. I want that people who don’t know much about translations have the opportunity to understand how important translators and interpreters are today, yesterday and in the future. I will talk about translation’s history hoping that I can help to demystify the profession and its importance. This is the point where I offer a unique point of view not only for translators, who will have great content to share with their current and future clients but to everyone else.
Even if I started blogging recently, my blog is already driving a fair amount of traffic to my website and generating some direct customers leads. I am glad I started because I can see the results immediately and the things you get to learn by doing it are worthwhile.
