Freelance business is a profitable one. If you’re creative and hard working, you can easily make moey from it. In this post, I want to show you the three proven ways to increase your earnings.
1. Associate With Credible Entrepreneurs
I decided to add this to the strategies because it works. The person you associate with has a direct influence in your life. When you consistently hang out with miscreants, you’ll be counted as one of them.
It doesn’t matter how handsome or cheerful you’re, the person you relate with will either make your life blissful or entirely mar your life and business. Guest posting is a great way to connect with intelligent bloggers around the world.
That is why you should get connected to the right persons. Do you know passionate bloggers and entrepreneurs; it’s time to network with them. They might not have millions in their bank account right now, but their passion and zeal will take them higher.
Don’t associate with business-killers; people who don’t believe in taking risk all because the sky is falling. A single endorsement form a credible blogger can send avalanche of fresh readers and prospects your way. Don’t you think so?
2. Increase Your Hourly Rate
Do you consult for corporate firms and small business organizations? This is the right time to increase your hourly rate. Are you scared to do it? If you’re, it means the quality of your work may be questionable. I’ve used this strategy in my coupon blog where I review Parallels coupon, VMware coupon and raxco coupon. It works!
I don’t feel awkward or guilty when increasing my rate. I trust they’ll understand and present their own case. If you’ve been doing great job, delivering on time and helping someone achieve her business, why wouldn’t the person accept your rate.
Young freelance entrepreneurs should be bold enough to make that call, send an email explaining why you’ve to beef up a bit. But be prepared to lose some clients.
Every client has budget and if after clear explanation, this particular ‘client’ fails to comprehend, let them be. It’s better to have few high paying associates than hundreds who doesn’t care about your purse. Is this fair?
3. Take Baby Steps
Every young entrepreneur was once a baby. I’ve listed 9 strategies to double your online earnings and you might be wondering how to implement all these to my business and still work less?
I’m not so selfish to impose this on you. Simply start with baby step. You’ve to crawl before you can stand and that’s important in your business. Even if you’ve the ability to fly, you couldn’t do that in a foggy weather.
So, what goals do you’ve as a young entrepreneur and which strategy above rightly fits in?
Once you pinpoint the one that suits your business needs, it’s time to start from there. Don’t take everything at once or you would hit a bug (sorry, I should’ve pampered you).
