    This is the best advice I've been given as a freelancer

    This is the best advice I've been given as a freelancer

    The very best advice I've ever had as a freelancer is a very simple one:Underpromise, and overdeliver.
    An editor of mine gave me this advice a few years into freelancing, and it really stuck with me. Not least because I see a lot of freelancers get into pickles because they've done the opposite - overpromise and underdeliver.
    The trouble is that if you overpromise, you're on a road to burnout, and you've left yourself with no wiggle room to wow your client.
    But if you under promise and over deliver (especially with deadlines!) you're giving yourself room to go above and beyond their expectations.
    In this week's podcast, I dive into this topic a little more!

    Three Ways To Find New Clients That You Won't Have Thought Of

    Three Ways To Find New Clients That You Won't Have Thought Of

    Looking for new freelance clients? I’ve got three methods you might not have tried!
    1) LinkedIn. Sure, you can post on there. But did you know you can search the jobs section for freelance gigs? And if you see a job that’s otherwise perfect, why not pitch them your freelance skills while they’re recruiting, to bridge the gap?
     
    2) Creativepool. Creativepool often lists jobs for the biggest creative businesses in the uk, and sometimes they have freelance ones too!
     
    3) Your own Facebook profile. So often, freelancers feel weird about posting about their work on their own Facebook profile. But you’ve got a whole network there of people who love you and want to support you, so share what you do so they can! If you’re looking for more ways to find clients, I’ve got just the thing. Check out my freebie, ‘30+ Ways to Find Your Next Client.’ It’s packed with tips and tricks for finding new clients as a freelancer. And for those who want to dive deeper, my course, ‘Finding Clients Quickly and Easily,’ is waiting for you.
