How to Create an Irresistible Freelance Service Offer – Part 2

“When in doubt, go to the source.” Star Wars: The Clone Wars In our case, that “source” is our offer. Always and forever, if you’re not making the sales you want, getting the clients you want, etc…. go to the source… your offer. 99% of the time that’s the problem. Today, we continue talking about how to get your service offer right. A quick recap… We’re talking about creating an irresistible freelance service offer — making your service package clearly and abundantly superior to your competitors — because it makes marketing and selling almost unnecessary… AND, sets you up to

How to Create an Irresistible Freelance Service Offer – Part 1

Value is subjective. That’s not random internet douche, Johnny Freelance, just saying it. It’s the most commonly-accepted (by far) economic theory of value called… surprise, surprise… the Subjective Theory of Value (you can read more about it on WikiPedia here). It stands in stark contrast to things like Marx’s Labor Theory of Value. Marxism has seen a resurgence of late, but, on the economic side, no credible economist would dare try to defend Marx’s Labor Theory of Value. That’s because it doesn’t accurately describe human behavior. Infamous online marketer, Frank Kern, did a video on this several years back. He

How to Figure Out the Best Freelance Services You Can Offer

The unknown unknown. You old enough to remember that? Donald Rumsfeld’s famous press conference where he talked about “known knowns, known unknowns, unknown knowns and unknown and unknowns.” Uh, what? Actually, it makes sense… even if he complicated the hell out of it. Said more simply: “You don’t know what you don’t know”. When you first start freelancing, that’s the sitch. It’s not about skill or talent or any of that. For the first year or so, it’s simply not really knowing what to do. There’s some “how’… but it’s mostly “what”. (Quick sidebar… I recognize some of y’all reading

The Foolproof Way to Package and Price Your Freelance Services

Now, that we’ve picked our freelance niche (article on that here if you haven’t done it, yet), it’s time to create, package and price our freelance services. This is another step that’s easy to just gloss over. But, let me ask you: Do you want to sell more of your services? And sell them more easily? Without guessing what your clients will pay a premium for? When I first started freelancing, this stuff was all foreign to me. My first attempt, I just offered up generic “web design” services. And, the response was… “crickets”. Nobody hired me. And, the more

How to Pick a Profitable Freelance Niche

When you decide to start freelancing, the very first thing you need to do is figure out your niche. If you’re like I was 15 years ago, you’ll have no idea what I mean by that. “What in the world is a niche? Why do I need one? Can’t I just ‘wing’ it?” That’s what we’re going to tackle in this article. By the time you’re done, you’ll know what a niche is, why it’s critical to success in freelancing and have yours all picked out and ready to move on to the next step. Here’s what we’re going to

I started this 3 days ago, following John’s suggestions, and I gained the Upwork Rising Talent badge in less than 2 days. I have a call with my first potential client tomorrow. Thanks, John!

John is the man! I followed his steps and I am flooded with interviews in a week. I got into two Talent clouds. The very next day, I got an invitation from the talent specialists from Upwork and a lot more. I wanna shout out, he is the best in this. Thanks John for helping me out!

After viewing John’s course, I made an Upwork account and it got approved the same day. Amazingly, I got my first job the very same day, I couldn’t believe it, I thought maybe I got it by coincidence. Anyways I completed the job and received my first earnings. Then, after two days, I got another job and within a week I got 3 jobs and completed them successfully. All the things he says seem to be minute but have a very great impact on your freelancing career.

I’ve been in an existential crisis for the last week about what the heck I’m doing as a business owner. Even though I’ve been a business for about a year, I’m constantly trying to think of how to prune and refine services. This was very personable and enjoyable to watch. Usually, business courses like this are dry and hard to get through…. repeating the same things over and over again. This was a breath of fresh air. THANK YOU.

I’ve definitely learnt so much in 2.5 hours than I’d learn watching different videos online on Youtube and reading tons of articles on the web. John has a natural way of teaching, where he is passionately diving in the topics and he makes it very easy to grasp — someone who wants you to really start running your business well by learning about the right tools and implement them in your online business. I will definitely share with many of the people I know who have been struggling for so long, I did find my answers and I’m sure will do too.

I have been following John Morris for several years now. His instruction ranges from beginner to advanced, to CEO-level guidance. I have referred friends and clients to John, and have encouraged my own daughter to pay attention to what he says. All of his teachings create wealth for me (and happiness for my clients!) I can’t speak highly enough about John, his name is well known in my home.

Sukh Plaha

John is a fantastic and patient tutor, who is not just able to share knowledge and communicate it very effectively – but able to support one in applying it. However, I believe that John has a very rare ability to go further than just imparting knowledge and showing one how to apply it. He is able to innately provoke one’s curiosity when explaining and demonstrating concepts, to the extent that one can explore and unravel their own learning journey. Thanks very much John!

John has been the most important person in my freelance career ever since I started. Without him, I would have taken 10 or 20 years more to reach the position I am at now (Level 2 seller on Fiverr and Top Rated on Upwork).
