The words you write have the power to build trust and win clients, but they also have the power to bore people to death and turn away clients. It's your choice whether you want to put in the work to write website copy that does all the “selling” for you. Most freelancers, unfortunately, leave copywriting as an afterthought. This creates a massive opportunity to stand out from your competitors by taking the time to nail your website copy. This week's guest, Rachel Greiman, is a freelance copywriter who works with nearly 100 clients per year. Not only is she earning 6 figures from her freelance work, she's also writing website copy for other 6 figure freelance photographers (our guest from episode #172 is actually one of her 6 figure clients). That makes Rachel the perfect expert to bring onto the podcast to teach us all about the process behind copywriting for freelancers. In this episode you'll discover: How great copy can affect your business Why copy should come before your website design How to understand what your ideal clients are looking for How to package your offering so the client buys what they want and gets what they need Why niching is so vital to your business How systems help Rachel have six figure years over and over How to go from $500 projects to $5,000 projects Why some businesses shouldn't have repeat clients For full show notes, visit https://6figurecreative.com/175
Tamara is a Marine wife, mother of three, crafter and businesswoman with a six-figure business called Southern A-Door-nments Decor I love her story so! She started her door hanger business while her husband was on deployment in Afghanistan with paint parties and has grown to a membership model with 1,000 members. We're going to talk about her biz journey, her team of 11 members (including a few of my own unicorns) and how she communicates with them (or how she'd rather just paint the pretty things!) and insight to the tactics that helped her get there. (AKA strategies you'll want to share with your own clients or use in your own business) "The moment that I decided to focus on community and worry less about the competition, to put on blinders, so to speak, and only looked at the path I was going on, things changed for me." This is going to be a fun lesson from a fellow biz owner and you're going to walk away wanting to paint too! I've been so happy to watch her success over the years!!

Read full transcript: Hi everyone, Carl Gould here with your #70secondCEO. Just a little over a one minute investment every day for a lifetime of results. I see for the rest of this year you would expect for it to get worse that their quitting and then I would suspect your gonna start to see more and more of that gig economist, that side hustler, that freelancer that continue it typically does in any major downturns, it did in 2008 I would expect to do it here. Technologies gonna accelerate that because in 2008 people started their own business out of necessities cause they couldn't get their corporate job back, people they're quitting business--their job now because they could start a business and technologies supports their ability to provide the work and there are, you know there's an increasing trend towards corporations using outsourced help as well and so those two trends are gonna feed each other. Companies are very happy to use freelancers and one of the main reasons was, I believe it's 36% of people that do freelance work have said that they have up skilled in the last year. So, they take in the training or certification so you know what would you want as your employee base anyway, you want to continuously upscale and trained them, well they're doing it on their own so if you find a freelancer they have likely taken the certification, increase their skills, sharpen their ability and their level of certification on certain software. So you know this group that's not only going out on their own but they're taking it upon themselves to make sure that they're more marketable, so all that points to the trend continuing. Like and follow this podcast so you can learn more. My name is Carl Gould and this has been your #70secondCEO.

Kristine welcomes guest Dominique Toney who shares why she started surrounding herself with layers of financial support in preparation for a big break that she believed would happen – and how all of that preparation helped her fully enjoy that financial windfall when it finally came. Dominique embodies the typical and frustrating dichotomies faced by many artists and freelancers. She has elevated her acting and singing talents to a professional level – and she has six-figures of student load debt. She books work in the industry that she loves – and she's had times when finding enough money to repair her car or pay her dentist was a total struggle. And, she knew that she had some choices to make that would shape her financial future. And now, Dominique's choices – to start educating herself about money, to utilize the tool of an accountability partner, and to learn from other people's mistakes – are truly paying off.

#109 Other designers and creative agencies are often looking for freelancers. You can stand out and get hired over and over—and charge more—by proving to be a reliable and trustworthy. Here are 9 ways to be a successful subcontractor.
Freelancers often ask: How do I get a client to pay an invoice that's past due? Instead of a how to on chasing payments, today we're asking and answering a better question: How do you get clients to pay you on time in the first place? If you've had more than one late-paying client in the past few years, following the actions recommended in this episode can shake up the way you approach billing. I share some very practical things you can do straight away to break a cycle of late payments and improve your cash flow. You may find yourself resistant to invoicing sooner than you currently do. If that's the case, it's an indication that you expect clients to pay you late. Follow my recommendations in this episode for a 90-day experiment to assess what happens when you're not the one slowing down your own payments. You can expect these things to happen: 1. You will experience discomfort when it's time to invoice sooner. That's what always happens when you step outside the familiar comfort zone. We can expect and anticipate that you'll come up with some compelling reasons why not to do this. This doesn't mean anything has gone wrong; it's something to observe while sending the invoice out. 2. You will have zero pushback or negative response from your clients. 3. You will be paid more quickly by some of your clients. 4. You will establish or deepen your belief and expectation that you deserve to be paid promptly. Here's a PDF that goes along with this episode. It recaps the steps I cover in the podcast, plus includes what to include in your invoice and what to do if the client doesn't pay in 30 days.

Today's guest is Craig Cannings. He is the co-founder of Freelance University with his wife, Kelly. Craig has had the privilege of helping over 20,000 students in 75 countries realize their dream of launching a portable, freelance business, and lifestyle. He has enjoyed the great freedom of working from home and traveling abroad while raising five wonderful daughters.We're going to be talking about creating leads in your businesses as Freelancers. Don't miss out!Career PathCraig Cannings was a professional counselor for about seven years before his brother-in-law decided to start an online business. He was dealing with a lot of people that were dealing with big challenges.His brother-in-law invited him to work for his educational software company and taught him about online marketing and the likes. His wife also worked with her brother and the company went through fast growth. One of his roles was to train new Freelancers and Virtual Assistants that were joining their team. From there, he realized that he had a bit of a knack for teaching, and that kind of led to the idea of what it would be like to not only train people in their company but create a university that would train Freelancers and Virtual Assistants how to start businesses and that's what they ended up launching.Expert Tips In Creating LeadsReferralsPersonal NetworkYour personal network is your personal circle. It could be your family, siblings, friends, friends of friends, and even within your family circle, you may have what is called connectors. If you've read the book from Malcolm Gladwell – Tipping Point. He talks about connectors being those people that just seem to have an ever-expanding social network and they just know people. When you connect with a connector, good things start to happen.Professional CircleIt could be past colleagues, past employers. It could be even other Freelancers that you can do cross-referrals. Say, you've got the freelance graphic designer and you've got the freelance writer, they may work with a client that needs both services. They create this cool little referral network.ClientsYour clients are your best referral Network as well. Because they know your work, they could speak to your quality and give an example.Guest Blogging Or Guest WritingGuest blogging or guest writing is a great way to get yourself out there that will help in creating leads, resulting in more opportunities. People are always looking for great writers that can offer valuable content to their audience.List BuildingAre you building an email list? The number one marketing channel is our email list. Free content in exchange for an email address could be the context of some sort of lead magnet, whether it's a guide, a report, an e-book, a video series, or a little course. This is golden for writers because this is a great way to demonstrate their writing abilities.Remember, they're giving you their email address is like getting their phone number. Make sure you're giving them something very valuable and that you're not constantly emailing them. You don't want to do that either.Advice To Business OwnerThink about progress over perfection. It takes away the stress of having to try to get everything right all the time. There's something that you do every day that moves you even a small step toward reaching the goals in your business.You have to keep learning. Lifelong learning will help you adapt to unexpected changes. If we stop learning new tools, if we stop learning new tactics, then we will be using old-school tactics in a set of digitally enhanced worlds and you'll never thrive with it.Support the show (http://www.thesavvyscribepodcast.com)

Do you know how many freelancers were created during the pandemic? What does it mean for the workforce? Carl shares some trends to watch out for. Read full transcript: Hi everyone, Carl Gould here with your #70secondCEO. Just a little over a one minute investment every day for a lifetime of results. There are fifty seven million freelancers working in the United States right now, that is up according to Upworks well over 20% and there an additional 2 million people who said that they had done freelance work during the pandemic, so here's what we're noticing.

Matthew Coatney, CIO at Thompson Hine, and author of The Human Cloud sits down and talks about what he sees as the transformation of how we work. According to Coatney, freelancing and project-based work (The Human Cloud) combined with Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (The Machine Cloud) will soon disrupt the way we deliver work. Law firms will not be exempt from this disruption. Matters are really just projects. Contract attorneys are freelancers. According to some experts, 80% of work to be done by organizations in the 2030s will be project-based work. And AI and ML will eat into the other 20%. Coatney says that we are missing out on an opportunity if we are not preparing for this reality. We asked how life as a CIO has changed over the past couple of decades for a CIO in a law firm and Coatney says that a CIO of 2000 would have culture shock if they were to be transported to today. CIOs are still the brand ambassadors of the IT departments, but Chief Technology Officers and Chief Data Officers are making their way into the fold to help offload some of the overwhelming responsibility that many of today's CIOs find falls on their shoulders. Matt also co-hosts The Human Cloud Podcast with Matthew Mottola where they put out twice-weekly episodes diving deeper into these topics. Go check out "The Matthews" on their own pod if you're curious about how the structure of work is going to change. Information Inspirations You may have noticed that we took last week off from this podcast, but we were busy recording other podcasts to fill the void. Greg went on the Legal Value Network's "Off the Clock" podcast and talked with Keith Maziarek of Katten and Percipent's Chad Main about the recent increase of available APIs from a number of legal information vendors. These APIs may very well open the door to a much easier method of pulling data in from vendors directly into internal law firm databases to better prepare firms to handle clients' needs. Marlene hosted an ILTA podcast panel on How Virtual Hearings Altered the Fabric of Dispute Resolution with Florida Circuit Judge Christopher Sprysenski, Trial Consultant with Paul Hastings, Jeremy Cooper, and Jackson Walker Partner, Richard Howell. The three give their personal experiences on how they handled virtual trials over the past twenty months. Contact Us Twitter: @gebauerm or @glambert. Voicemail: 713-487-7270 Email: email@example.com.

Have you ever read a book and just known the author's marriage is terrible? Today's roast is New Moon -- about a love triangle where the protagonist does NOT love one of the boys, so it's a janky triangle with a leg that's way shorter -- the first isosceles love triangle! Plus, Kellen moves on from his Twilight-loving past, and Dave does not move on from his Twilight-hating present.***NOTE***This episode was originally taped in front of a live audience, but the venue's audio software "crashed" and was lost. We apologize to all who were present who now don't get to have that memory recorded. After hearing the news, we recorded as we usually would (cold and alone), but we have included a few minutes of the original live recording as it was captured on an offstage mic. You'll find it at the end of this episode--it's not high quality, but it's something (which could have been the tagline to this book...).***ALSO***If you need a quick recap of this book because you haven't read it (congrats by the way), this is the one where Edward (handsome vampire) breaks up with Bella (dull human) to "protect her," and leaves for most of the book while Bella becomes close friends with Jacob (handsome dull werewolf).
