The very first thing you need to do to start freelancing is figure out what services you’re going to offer. And, not just: “Oh, I wanna be a graphic designer”. That’s not good enough and getting freelance jobs will always be harder if you only go this far.
That’s because most clients don’t want a service.
They want a logo.
Or a website.
Or a 1,000 word article.
Clients think in end results. Objects. Tangible “things” they’re going to get from the service. So, when you position your services that way from the start, they make more sense to potential clients and already are exactly what they want.
They don’t have to guess.
Or, ask questions.
And, getting regular clients gets a helluva lot easier for you.
Fivver’s a great tool for figuring all this out. Most of their services are already productized and featurized, so you just have to go over there and do a little research. I also have a free tutorial where I show you how to do that. If you’re interested, it’s here.
