I know a lot of freelancers, and I think it is fair to say that most of them don’t much like marketing themselves.
They enjoy their craft – writing or copywriting. But they don’t like promoting their services to prospective clients. In fact, the whole process of finding prospects and then trying to turn them into paying clients is the part of being a freelancer they like least.
I get that.
A few freelancers are natural salespeople. Many of these are extroverts, and happy to jump in front of a prospect and start selling.
But what about the rest of us? How can we get over our discomfort with marketing our services? Would it be possible to actually get to a stage where we enjoyed marketing?
I have spent a lot of time thinking about these questions, and figuring out a way for all freelancers to do a better job of marketing…even the quiet ones, the timid ones and the hard-core introverts.
And I think now, after 30 years of freelancing, and almost a decade of teaching and coaching, I have come pretty close to finding the answer.
In short, I have found a way for all of us to promote our services more effectively. There IS an approach that allows us to market ourselves, without feeling uncomfortable.
To share this with other freelancers, I have put together a series of 4 x 90-minute webinars (Pus 3 x follow-up webinars at 30, 60 and 90 days).
To learn more, watch this 6-minute video.
For even more about this webinar series, you’ll find an information and sales page for the event here…
