Niche marketing - holistic service to literary clients

Hi guys,

I offer services including transcription, typing and proofreading (see my site Typewrite Proofreading - Home) , and my clients are varied at the moment as I've marked in a general arena - so clients include forensics teams, researchers, lecturers, students, etc.

I've always had a vested interest in writing and literature, and I'm thinking that I would like to offer a holistic service to publishers, journalists and authors - transcribing, typing, and editing, in other words if an author sends me his manuscript, I run with it from start until finish.

Can you guys let me know whether you think this could work?

And then the other question I have is how to attract this kind of client. The ways I've thought of are to follow publishers and journalists on Twitter and find them on FB and Google and let them know I'm offering this service. Can you guys offer any other suggestions? Thanks guys!

Another great platform to reach potential clients and make new connections is through linkedin.

If you are looking to attract customers in the long term i suggest investing some time into search engine optimisation (SEO). the first step is to identify keywords and terms that have a high search volume relating to your product / service. From here you can optimise your website to target these key terms so that when potential customers search for the word or term on google or bing, your site ranks higher on search engine results and therefore gets more traffic from users with buying intent.. hope this helps?

let me know if u need anymore seo tips :)
