7 Things You Can Do Today to Make Sure You Get Freelance Gigs
Looking for freelance gigs, but feel like you keep getting passed over? You’re not alone.The freelance world is incredibly crowded, so if you want to really be successful at it, you’re going to have to work smarter (not necessarily harder) than everybody else.
The free video training I’m about to give you will tell you everything you need to know to do just that.
How do I know?Because since NerdyGirl.co first began, I’ve personally hand picked over a hundred freelancers out of literally THOUSANDS of applicants.
If you’re sick of being just a faceless member of the giant freelancer crowd, this video is meant for you. Watch it now, or if you’re not in a good spot to watch a video at the moment, make sure to pin this so you can refer back to it later.
I know how you feel. As a new freelancer, it’s really hard to set yourself apart. It feels like you’re one in a million other people applying for the same (often low-paying) job… and in many cases, you kinda are!
So what do you do about it?
The good news is that there ARE things you can do to land that next job, and they’re not hard. You can do them now, no matter how many jobs you’ve landed before (even if you’ve never landed a single one)!
In all honesty, I have to say that I’m a little stunned that more writers (even established writers) aren’t doing a better job at this stuff. Let me elaborate a bit on why I say that.
At one point, I was receiving no less than 60 applications every single day. Sixty freelancers trying to get the same job!
There was no way I could consider them all. So I deleted the vast majority of the emails. I was looking for reasons to ignore them.
I don’t want that to happen to you.
The few writers I did consider weren’t all that different from the ones I ignored, but what was different was the way they set themselves apart. Chances are, some of those who applied and didn’t stand out were a lot better and more experienced than those who did!
What does this mean for you?
This should come as fantastic news. Here’s the truth:
The playing field is really quite level when it comes to getting freelancing gigs.
All you have to do is play your cards right, and that’s exactly what I’ll teach you how to do in this free video training. I won’t even ask for your email address (although if you want my best video training ever, the one that will help you to attract clients to you like a magnet, I highly recommend you sign up to get that in the smart bar at the top of this post, assuming you can see it right now).
In this free mini-course, I’ll teach you:
- How to create a portfolio that will make you look like you’ve been doing this for years (even if you’ve never had a paying gig)
- What freelance hiring managers are really looking for (and how to easily show them you’re the best)
- The #1 thing potential hires do that gets my attention (that’s coincidentally also the EASIEST thing to do)
If any of that sounds like something you’d like to know, I highly encourage you to go ahead and watch the video now! It’s just over 20 minutes, so if you don’t have time right now, make sure to pin it for later.
Thanks so much for watching!
