When I mentioned to my wife my intention of writing an article about a wonderful and historical hotel, she sprang into action. She contacted the establishment and wangled a 50% reduction in the price of a great room.
She told the manager I was going to write about the place and was transferred to the sales department. They requested a sample of my writing and fortunately I had an article which filled the bill.
My article was #2 beneath theirs on the first page of Google, so this helped quite a bit. I doubt this would work very frequently but it is worth a try.
Besides getting a very expensive room at half price I expect to make a few bucks on the article too. A win-win situation in my book.
My wife is a haggler from hell when she gets going!
Can't complain too much, Lynne. Going through a terrible bout of vertigo at the moment but it will clear up when the pollen dissipates somewhat. Thanks for asking.

The link suggestion tool and the keyword tabs are very powerful additions to the Hp arsenal.Ive always tried to write in groups and interlink as much as possible. I also like to occasionally look back at my analytics - see what terms I may not have considered and use those terms to add a few new...

How do you set a fee for a freelance project? I've been working through Elance but have no idea what kind of fees to set in my proposals. How do you determine what to charge, and what are some average prices? I don't want to be over the top expensive but I don't want to cheap out on myself either....

Just wondering. Has anyone left their day job and concentrated instead on freelance writing? I'd be very much interested to learn how it went. Thanks!
