The simple answer is, it might.
Of course as you already know, freelancing isn't a straightforward gig with easy answers!
LinkedIn is a social network for professionals in virtually any industry. The idea is to create a professional profile and connect with other people that may be able to help you advance your career and grow your business. A dropshipping professional, for example, may wish to connect with international marketing professionals and copywriters to help promote his product and make for sales.
Writers, therefore, can sign up to connect with business marketers that need copywriting and other sales writing. Authors can also connect with publishers and agents.
Will these connections be fruitful? It's impossible to say, but as with every part of the freelance writing business, extreme motivation and effort usually pays off.
If you haven't created a great LinkedIn profile yet, we do suggest that you go ahead and do so. Don't take the process lightly, however; put your best foot forward and think of the LinkedIn platform as a kind of online business card, resume and portfolio. Choose a friendly but professional photo and make sure to link to your best work or homepage.
Update at least once a week, and take some time to do some profile digging! Hopefully you'll find just what you need to give your freelance writing business a boost.
