👀 So, you’re eager to get started with freelancing, but you might be wondering, “How do I actually FIND clients?” Well, my friend, that shouldn’t be your first question. We need to start by focusing on the initial discovery of potential clients and creating a plan to guide them from discovering your business to actually hiring you. This roadmap is the secret sauce that allowed my business to grow successfully, and today, I’m going to spill all the juicy details…
First things first, let’s tackle the initial discovery phase. This means making consistent efforts to bring new eyes to your business. Think about ways to build connections and share about what you offer. Personal connections, Facebook groups, and social media are all great avenues to explore.
Once someone discovers your business, make sure they can easily get in touch with you. Have clear information on your website or social media profiles about what you offer and how to contact you. Provide multiple ways for potential clients to connect, such as a portfolio or a clickable link to book a call.
Speaking of calls, step three is the discovery call! This can be nerve-wracking, but practice makes perfect. Get on calls with potential clients, ask the right questions, and listen carefully to their needs. Use the information gathered to recommend next steps and show how you can help them!
Not every discovery call will lead to a client, and that’s okay… Trust your instincts and only work with clients who align with your values and goals. Remember, it’s better to find the right clients than to take on every opportunity that comes your way!
