Yes, there are a few freelance writers nearby, but my opportunities for face-to-face networking with colleagues are somewhat limited. With the power of Twitter (and sites like Twitter), though, I can touch base nearly every day with professional freelance colleagues in distant locations such as Canada, New York, North Carolina, Germany, Singapore, and many others. The truth is that people would rather do business with people they know than with people they don’t know. Too many people these days have lost the real purpose behind networking, which is to get to know people. For example, you would probably not introduce yourself to a new person for the first time face-to-face and in the next breath demand that they hire you or buy something from you.
FreelanceFolder is a community for freelancers, entrepreneurs, work-at-home business owners, and web-workers. Neither the service provider nor the domain owner maintain any relationship with the advertisers.


The odds of there being many like-minded professional writers right where I live is fairly small. While some of these referrals are from offline colleagues, many of them are also from online friends — folks that I have never actually met face-to-face.
Two of these have resulted in paying clients, and I may yet see income from the other two leads.
Have you ever made an online “friend,” only to be spammed through social media and e-mail with constant requests to buy something?
The online stats-obsession focus started on blogs (tracking the number of subscribers, Diggs, or comments) and has moved to social media (tracking the number of Facebook friends or Twitter followers).
I once heard of a freelancer who kept a list of all his online contacts and what they did for him. In case of trademark issues please contact the domain owner directly (contact information can be found in whois).


While freelancers can always benefit from networking locally, social media sites allow us to connect with individuals and organizations that we might not otherwise have the opportunity to connect with. Like my offline friends, my online friends are valuable colleagues who I can bounce ideas off of and share thoughts and experiences with. While some marketing is natural and can be expected (we all have to make a living), when the purchase requests outweigh the personal interaction the online relationship is in trouble. Most of the job leads that I received in the past month were from colleagues that I’ve known online for several years now. Too many freelancers create an online profile and then abandon it when they don’t get instant results.
