Free E-Book Teaches You to 'Escape the Cubicle'

Last Updated Oct 16, 2009 11:50 AM EDT

Freelancing rocks. So does telecommuting. But if you're new to either one, there are challenges aplenty. WebWorkerDaily addresses these challenges on a daily basis, but now the site has culled some of its best posts into a free e-book: Web Work 101: How to Escape the Cubicle.

Here's a sampling of the topics you'll find in the 34-page PDF:

  • 6 Questions to Ask Yourself Before Taking on a New Client
  • Search Engine Optimization Basics
  • Common Early Mistakes and How To Avoid Them
  • Be Your Own Tech Support
Although the content is good, the layout seems a little slapdash: It's all text, without a single screenshot or illustration.

Still, the price is right, so whether you're a new or veteran "Web worker," you're sure to find some useful information.
