Are you a digital marketing freelancer and looking to be more successful? Are you a freelancer who is thinking about taking the plunge to go full-time as a freelancer but aren’t sure if you have the clients to make it happen? Last week, SEJ ThinkTank hosted a webinar for you!
If you missed out, I have a full recap, including a full video recording, below.
Danielle Antosz, SEJ’s Features Editor and a full-time freelancer, joined SEJ ThinkTank to talk about finding freelance clients, how to know when to take the jump to full time, and what client red flags you need to keep an eye out for. If you are looking for ways to succeed in freelancing, there are plenty of insider tips that you can learn from her presentation.
- If you are still looking for the perfect time to venture into freelancing, know that there will never be a perfect time, nor will there ever be a perfect amount of money in the bank. You just have to do it.
- Make use of the available resources to find jobs:
- Job Boards
- Check out hiring platforms
- Pay attention to red flags, and know when to say no. Don’t do something you aren’t comfortable doing.
