My colleague Nick Jones recently took ownership of the online directory Find a Proofreader.
I've plugged it quite a lot recently because I think it's demonstrated very quickly that it can generate leads. After all, if you're using directories as a marketing tool to advertise your services you want those directories to be active.
My entry has been live for less than two weeks and I've had three opportunities to quote for work: one from a marketing and communications agency, one from a business, and one from an independent writer. The nature of my business, working primarily for publisher clients, means I'm already booked up, but it's good to know that if I'd had space in my schedule there would have been leads to pursue.
