Let the noobs fight for Upwork clients

I’m obviously a big fan of Upwork.

I started my freelance career, in earnest, there. I teach a course on it. I’ve helped tens of thousands of freelancers get started there. It is one of the better ways to get started and get freelance clients.

Still… I’m not blind.

It’s competitive.

And, only gets more competitive as time goes on.

And, as more people jump into freelancing.

I’ve also NEVER been a fan of putting all your egg in one basket. It’s one of the things I’ve found with freelancers who struggle to get clients consistently. They usually only know one or two methods for getting clients.

And, if those dry up… they’re screwed.

In my upcoming course, Freelance Feast, I teach six unique methods for getting clients. And, I don’t mean Upwork is one, Freelancer.com is, Fiverr is three… like a lot of lame blog posts claiming “52 ways to get clients” do.

I’m talking 6 completely different and unique METHODS.

That’s really the secret for going from famine to feast as a freelancer.

In any case, cold email is one of those methods. Of course, rookies will snort at the thought of cold emailing — or, even worse, call it “spam”… when, if you do it the way I teach, it’s nowhere close to spam.

If you don’t know what you’re doing, cold email can seem “scary”…

But, it has some big advantages over the other methods.

One of the biggest is the ability to qualify your leads before you ever even think about writing an email. Yeah, the spammers don’t do that… that’s what makes them spammers and it’s why their methods don’t work.

But, if you follow what I teach…

Before you ever even open an email program, you’ll have a massive list of highly qualified leads you KNOW:

Can afford your fees and won’t haggle for every penny

Desperately NEED the services you offer

Not to mention… you’ll know before-hand exactly what to say in your email to get them to hire you that’s unique to THEM. Not some template email that you blast out to thousands of people.

Unique, targeted emails that smack them in the forehead…

And make them pay attention.

I also teach a method that gets your emails delivered directly to your lead’s inbox 100% of the time, guaranteed. You’ll never hit the spam box or get filtered. It’s brain-dead simple, but nobody does it.

Plus, my “big brother” approach to figuring out a client’s hot buttons.

The exact buttons to press in your email and follow-up meeting to get them to take action now. Yes… it’s a bit creepy, but it works. And, if you’re desperate to get clients… what have you got to lose? It’s also optional.

In any case, this is all in my new course I call the Cold Email Method.

I’m releasing it on Skillshare for the month of April ONLY. At which point, I’ll take it down and sell it on my website… probably starting out around $100. So, if you want to before you have to hand over that chunk of change…

I suggest you jump on it while it’s on Skillshare.

I’ve added it as a lesson in my 11-hour mega-course, “Let’s Talk Freelance”. It’s Lesson #3 called: “APR2021: Cold Email Method”. That’s the full core course that I’ll eventually sell on my website for $100 or more.

Yours to access right now for nothing.

Anyway, the link to the course is here: https://myjohn.us/coldemail

If you have a Skillshare account, that’ll take you right into it. If not, you can use that link to sign up for a FREE 14-day trial. And, if you want… you can take the course and just cancel before the two weeks is up and never pay a penny.

A few hoops to jump through…

But, saves you $100.

So, maybe worth it for you.

Anyway, like I said, it comes down at the end of April… so get in now.
