Let's face it.
Freelancing can be tough.
Especially when you are just starting out.
On top of everything else you have to figure out all these challenges...
And just as importantly
Not to mention the thorny issue of what and how you should be charging. (Because let's face it, it seems everyone else is charging waaaay differently to how you had in mind.)
And let's not start on the clients who ghost you or the non-payers.
What's more, there is another harsh truth that no one wants to talk about...
And it's this:
Getting clients has little to do with how good you are at your job.
It doesn't matter if you are a phenomenal photographer, a great graphic designer or a marvellous marketing pro...
No matter how talented you are, it’s NEVER going to guarantee clients.
Or ensure you are going to make the money you think you deserve.
And why not, you may well ask?
Because being good at what you do is simply not enough to cut it as a successful freelancer.
You also need to know how to build, market and manage a business.
But for most freelancers, running a profitable business doesn't come naturally.
We are too busy honing our skills and doing our ‘thing’.
And in any event, once potential clients see what we can do, the money will come rolling in, right?
If you are just starting out on your freelance journey or are struggling with your business, this important message is for you.
Hi, I'm Eleanor Goold, the founder of Kreativ Copywriting.
I know what it is like to run a freelance business. The ups and downs, the blood, sweat and the tears.
Not only have I set up and run my own business (and all the challenges that entails) but I also created and managed a popular Facebook community for freelance copywriters where the same freelance challenges came up again and again.
You see, when I started out I assumed, like most people new to freelancing, that having a marketable skill was the main component of success.
What I didn't know was how to properly market that skill, attract the clients that were suitable for me and all the other essentials you need to have in place to run a successful freelance business.
It was an extremely steep (and tough) learning curve.
I know from personal experience what it’s like:
• Not getting paid on time
• Not getting paid at all and the clients doing a runner
• Marketing to everyone – and getting no one
• Working for free (YES. FREE) and receiving zero benefit in return
• Being overworked, underpaid and undervalued
• Not having a crumb of work for months on end (that one nearly broke me)
And many other quite frankly scary experiences that I would never wish on anyone.
And that includes you.
These are just some of the challenges facing freelancers in today's competitive market.
And it's not getting any easier.
Imagine then, for just a moment, if you could...
