Host: Hello and welcome back to another episode of the Freelancers Tea Break! This short and sweet podcast and video series is perfect for your coffee or tea break. I’ve got a freshly brewed one here, and today I want to dive into a topic that’s on the minds of many freelancers—three effective ways to boost your income without burning out or resorting to uncomfortable tactics. So, let’s get started.
Option 1: Upping Your Rates
Now, the first option might seem obvious, but it’s often underestimated—upping your rates. As a freelancer, you’re continually improving your skills and gaining experience. Just like in a traditional job, you’d expect a raise for your efforts. So, make sure to regularly evaluate and adjust your rates. It doesn’t have to be a significant increase, even a small adjustment can make a substantial difference in your monthly income. I’ll include a template in the notes for a smooth transition with your current clients.
Option 2: Turning Rejections into Opportunities
Moving on to option two, consider reframing rejections as opportunities. If a potential client can’t afford your one-to-one services, explore alternative options. Perhaps offer a DIY course, a consultation call, or a mid-range service that provides value without the high price tag. Use rejections as a chance to identify new products or services that can bridge the gap and still cater to your client’s needs.
Option 3: Create a Freelance Funnel
The third option involves creating a freelance funnel. This strategy involves offering a variety of products or services at different price points. Start with free content, like social media posts or blog posts, to attract a broad audience. Gradually lead them through low-cost offers, such as ebooks or mini-courses, building up to higher-priced services like consultations or courses. At the bottom of the funnel is your premium one-to-one work. Not every client will reach this stage, but having a well-structured funnel increases your accessibility to a wider audience.
To delve deeper into this concept, I’ve developed a training session that breaks down the process of building a freelance funnel. You can find more information in the notes.
And there you have it—three ways to increase your income as a freelancer without feeling pushy or resorting to questionable tactics.
