Our CEO, Kate had the pleasure of being a guest on the Go Freelance Webinar Summit from Skillcrush recently. Her and their Director of Content, Randle Browning, discussed how to use your tech skills to launch a thriving freelance business and how to position yourself to attract the clients you want.

In the video above, Kate shares how her first-hand experience as a freelancer and client has translated into the CloudPeeps platform. You’ll also learn how to spot a problem client, communicate clearly as a freelancer, and identify the types of jobs that will be best for you.

Quick tips she shares for properly positioning yourself for the clients you want include:

  • Identify what makes you want to freelance
  • Define what it is you’re passionate about and make it clear in your branding
  • Clearly spell out how you can help your clients in your pitches
  • Be quick in your follow up and communications
  • Follow up and follow through if you don’t hear back right away
  • Show up and meet deadlines
