Getting short-term contracts to do work on marketing projects is the best way I have found to make money fast in digital marketing. This is my live journal of going through the process right now....

OPERATION: MARKETING CONTRACT

This approach requires very little money upfront and can generate $1500-2000 per week within days of implementing. It does not take months to see return on investment like affiliate marketing, email lists and social media. It requires nothing up front like Google Ads or starting your own agency.

This journal is for documenting the process I use currently for getting contracts for short-term marketing projects. Including: finding, connecting, interviewing and negotiating short-term deals with various types and sizes of companies, agencies and individuals.

This is the best way to make the most money doing digital marketing in the least amount of time. Yet, it is not talked about on the digital marketing forums as much as “Easy Profit Magic Button” or “Swipe My Money, I Will Just Make More.”

This is my way of giving back something to this forum that's given me a lot. I have been on here since 2013 and I have five reputation points. Funny part is, I was given those accidently I am pretty sure. I have not been great at contributing. I'm trying to fix that now.

HERE WE GO...

FIVE STAGE OVERVIEW[/font][/size]

There are dozens of project listings from potential clients looking to hire someone on a contract basis digital for digital marketing services in my medium/small sized city.
  • They can't do it themselves.
  • They don't want to hire full-time due to added costs and overhead.
  • This role is often new to these companies.
  • They are not sure about hiring full-time yet.

Therefore, an opportunity exists to do marketing work for them on a pay-per-project or an hourly basis. Working as an Independent Contractor offers the most opportunity for the highest pay with the best chance of building future value. Plus, you get paid weekly sometimes or half upfront. You can negotiate things you cannot in regular jobs is the point here.

Here is an overview of the steps in the search process for marketing projects:

1. GOALS and STRATEGY
2. RESUMES, PROOF OF VALUE
3. APPLY - NETWORK - REPEAT
4. INTERVIEW and NEGOTIATE
5. PROCESS REVIEW

I will be documenting my current process for finding and getting contract gigs on digital marketing projects by setting up things so that I will have the best chance of finding a project that is 2-3 months in length and between 15-30 hours at a rate of $35-$50.

As part of this process, I will be updating my resume and LinkedIn Profile. Also, I will be setting up an appointment calendar, asking for referrals and doing some networking via Linkedin as well as prepping for interviews and being ready to negotiate and to start on a project tomorrow if one should appear suddenly. (They often do when you are ready for them I have found in my experience.)

01/09/20 - STAGE ONE: ASSESSMENT, GOALS, STRATEGY

I keep it simple by using Indeed, Glass Door and LinkedIn Jobs. What I am looking for is to make sure that there are gigs available that will pay more than I can make through a regular job and that I have a decent chance of getting them.

I am also looking for the types of skills that are needed for these projects. I also make sure to include words like “remote” and “flexible hours” because I have a problem getting anywhere at a certain hour and it has really killed what otherwise might have been a good relationship in my work history.

You will have to play with this a little bit to get a sense of it. I do include work that is listed as part-time and full-time. These employers can be talked into modifying a position if they have not been able to fill it. Remember, in digital marketing there are more jobs available than qualified candidates to fill them.

Alright, so for the first phase in this example I search Indeed for “digital marketing specialist” in my area which is Minneapolis, Minnesota and I find one-hundred-eighty-seven job openings with fifteen of these being contract gigs on projects.

Glass Door gives me one-hundred-twenty-three with one contract posting (so I may have to change up using Glass Door). Linkedin gives me fifty-five for the same title with no contract work specified.

This is only one job title search though and once you do this for a couple more job titles that fit your skill set, you will get a sense for what is out there and where you might best fit into the market needs at this time.

Having done this a few times, I know that it usually takes five to ten project openings to find a good fit for my skill set. (Which is focused on paid advertising and landing page campaigns.)

Alright, now I move on to the second stage which is making sure my resume, cover letter and work samples meet the needs of the market and stand out.

01/13/20 - STAGE 2: LINKEDIN, REPORT, RESUME

Alright, so in the first stage we checked out the market, so we have an idea of the types of contract work out there as well as the pay range.

Now, in the next step, we match up our side of the demand/value equation to have the best possible outcome.
