You can’t neglect the VERY thing that is the solution to your “not enough time” problem

I hear this all the time from freelancers:

John, I WANT to start a blog or I WANT to start making YouTube videos, but I’m so busy with my 9-5 job and my client work on the side… I just don’t have the time to promote my freelance services.

This is cutting of your nose to spite your face.

Promotion…

Blogging.

YouTube.

Social media.

That IS the solution to your time problem. Because, it’s how you’ll get MORE clients, higher-paying clients… and how you’ll be able to leave your 9-5 job. Which will free up an enormous amount of time.

So, you really have to bite the bullet.

Suck it up for a few months or years.

And, set aside 1-2 hours/day to do some kind of promotion.

And, it almost doesn’t matter what.

Something is better than nothing. As the infamous Gary Vee says, 1 > 0. Anything you do will be better than the nothing you’re doing now. And then, if you just stuck with it until you get a little good at it.

Sky’s the limit.

And, here’s the really big secret with all this.

Most people are terrified to do it.

They’re so scared of what other people will think..

They’ll NEVER do it.

Be willing just to DO it is literally the difference.

I really hope that impacts you and convinces you to get out there and start producing something to promote your freelance services and get off that day job grind. Because nothing happens until you act.

In any case, if you wanna learn how I create content and product my products and services, check out my upcoming course, Content Marketing for Freelancers, here: https://content2clients.com

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING

John is one of the best instructors I have come across, I learned a lot from his online tutorials.

Bob Patterson

Not only is John a very talented programmer and developer, he is also an excellent communicator. He has a talent for taking complex subjects and communicating them in terms that anyone can understand. This is a rare combination. This ability has enabled me to take my skills and knowledge to the next level. Thank you John for for all that you do.

Daniel Mohlendick

On the Freelancing on Upwork course: “This is by far the best course i have watched on Skillshare!! Thank you so much.”

Chris Aitken

He significantly improved my site through his expert knowledge of PHP, CSS and Javascript. Would definitely recommend John to others.

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!
