Some say it’s because they aren’t selling the right services.
There’s no such thing as the “right services.” We’ve sold all kinds of things. From consulting and copywriting, to influencer outreach and PR. All of these services are equally valuable, but if you don’t love it, you won’t sell it.
Other freelancers complain and say that companies don’t have any money.
The world is not broke. Especially not the business world. It only feels that way, if you’ve been pitching the wrong people or in the wrong places. But we’ll let you in on a little secret: companies have money.
There are wayyy more successful brands with money than without - you just can’t be afraid to sell to them. The businesses we pitch have cash money, and they are HAPPY (yes, you read that right) to pay our rates. It’s actually been years since we’ve talked to anyone who couldn’t afford us.
Some freelancers attribute their flailing business to a shortage of clients.
Yet, there’s no shortage of clients anywhere. They’re all around you. We see everyone (with a budget) as a potential client and because of that we’re always booked solid.
Booked with clients we LOVE who are thrilled to pay our rates, commit to a minimum of 4 months, and don’t bat an eyelash at 4- and 5-figure retainers.
And then you have the freelancers who live and die by the state of their website. These are the people who’ve been fiddling with their site for 6 months, and haven’t made a dime.
I (Jenny) made my first $120K with NO website, 2 clients and a Hotmail account. And guess what? We STILL don’t use a website for our freelancing services even as we continue to scale. We’ve simply learned to sell, sell services we love, and get in front of the right clients. No fancy, techy setup required. In fact, we wouldn’t do it any other way (nor do we know how).
That’s why we can say with absolute certainty: We are the BEST freelance coaches anywhere online or off, and nobody pitches or builds freelance businesses better than we do. And not just better — but with a lot more EASE.
We know how to sell freelance services to high-powered CEOs of big-name brands.
We know how to sell services we LOVE and inspire companies to believe in our work and our vision for their brand.
We can close deals over the phone like no other freelancers you’ve ever seen.
And we’ve mastered the art of getting founders, CEOs, startups, etc., to pay premium rates, while we deliver premium services we’re proud of.
Companies LOVE our pitch and so they buy US first, our work second.
That’s why we make six figures freelancing. Doing the thing that everyone says is hard work, or impossible. And we’re not killing ourselves doing it either.
Freelancing doesn’t have to be hard. That’s just a myth. You can drop that BS story RIGHT NOW.
