As you know, freelancing can be tough. One of the biggest struggles is finding clients. Once you find a client, you may have them for a little while, or their budget may change and they no longer need you. Here are some places I go when I need some client work.
I've said it before, and I will say it again. Pitch. There are a few ways you can do this. You can cold pitch via email, you can send messages through social media, or you can look on the clients website and pitch from there.
Personally, I love this way to find clients. It is one of my strongest areas and where most of my work as come from. I connect with many different companies and people. I showcase myself and I message people with personal notes when we connect. Need help with LinkedIn? Hop over to my coaching page and schedule a call. It's the platform I love the most!
Reach out to Past Clients
Past clients may be able to help you when you are looking for more work. When I reach out to past clients I send them a reminder on who I am and what I do. This gives them a heads up on any content that would be relevant for me to write.
Recently, I have stepped away from job boards. They take up a lot of time and they have not paid off for me. One of the best places for me to get gigs these days is through the Healthcare Marketing Network. They handle the negotiation of pricing and make sure the client is legit.
I hope these tips help you next time you need some help with client work!
