Looking for Leads October 28, 2007

Posted by shannonmuir in Advice, Resources.

With the Internet, the ability to advertise leads for freelancing has become easier than ever.  By this, I mean easier for people to find opportunities as well as them to be posted.  Unfortunately, this also opens the door wide for scammers (people who talk writers into doing work on spec with promise of pay on publication, usually once something launches).  Often these scammers have a basic webpage claiming “coming soon” or “under construction” and seem quite credible, which makes checking up on their credibility harder than ever.  So before approaching any company, one should run the name through a search engine and see what comes up first… just in case something has been uncovered in the past about the company.  It may save a lot of heartache in the end.
