Maximizing Your Freelancing Potential
Thursday, January 4 | 2:00PM - 3:00PM ET
GWA is excited to announce the launch of its new webinar series, featuring topics and speakers focused on building your business and your career. To access, all you need is a computer, phone or tablet.
Are you working in your business or on your business? If you're only spending your time writing articles and recording podcasts, editing photos and creating books, you're probably missing out on opportunities to grow your income without sacrificing your life. It's just as important to work "on" your business as it is to work in your business. Katie Elzer-Peters, owner of The Garden of Words and MakeMeAFreelancer.com will present ways to streamline your freelance communicating business, get more work, and enjoy quality time off.
Topics to be covered:
- Focus: You can't be everything to everyone. How to identify what you're best at, what you most enjoy, and how you can make the biggest difference to your clients.
- How to tailor your message to your intended audience: Do you want to be a brand representative? Or would you rather work behind the scenes to create content? Learn what you need to pitch yourself for a variety of types of work.
- Business management: Are you knowledgeable about creating great content related to your subject matter but not so great at handling the business side? Learn about resources, tools, and techniques to achieve that elusive work/life balance, streamline tasks, and keep yourself organized.
- New Avenues: You have to market your skills and services. The same work you've been doing is disappearing. What opportunities are available that you haven't considered? How do you handle self promotion? And let's talk about email list building.
ALL webinar attendees will have the opportunity to download a worksheet to follow along and take notes for maximum knowledge absorption. After the webinar, follow-up materials and strategy docs will be available exclusively to attendees.
