The Freelance Lifestyle (3)

Happy Pitch Slap Wednesday everyone! For newcomers to this blog, Pitch Slap Wednesday is a friendly little reminder that as freelancers we need to be pitching on a weekly basis – even if we’ve got a full workload now. Quiet periods can creep up on you very easily, especially around this time of year, so having a line up of potential work is a Very Wise Move (and hey, if you get it you could share the workload with another freelancer).

Pitching isn’t just for experienced freelancers though. It’s an essential part of building a business when you’re new. Essential but a bit scary when it’s a whole new world.

A couple of months ago, the lovely Madeleine Noble Jones got in contact and asked if I did a pitch-specific e-course. Which sounded like a brilliant idea. So, I’ve put together the How To Pitch For New Clients mini e-course.

It covers a multitude of topics, including:

  • How to identify your ideal client
  • How to match your services to their needs
  • How to sum up your services in a sentence
  • How to use freelance bidding sites
  • How to prepare for and excel at networking
  • How to use LinkedIn to boost your business
  • How to create a pitching document
  • How to set up a newsletter that could win you clients
  • How to set up your terms and conditions

*Please note, if you’re already a member of the 30 Day Freelance Lifestyle E-Course, areas of this will be covered. However, there is plenty of brand new stuff in there too!

Until the 14th November, I’m offering this mini e-course for $49 (about £30). Like the sound of it? Want to boost your clients and your income? Simply click on the link below!
