  • It’s never too early to start thinking about your business as a brand. As early as possible in your career, create business cards, a simple website, and sales materials. Credibility is established through these factors. Besides printed materials, think about what makes you different from other freelancers or businesses on the block.
  • Freelancers used to work out of their homes, but many now recognize the benefits of having a shared workspace. With BGEN’s month-to-month lease arrangements, you can enjoy a professional environment for meeting clients.
  • You will need to spend a lot of time marketing and selling even after you’ve established your company. You should make it your top priority right away. You should start building contacts as early as possible, whether you are attending Chamber of Commerce events, social mixers, or scheduling sales appointments. Because BGEN is home to professionals from various industries, you’ll be able to grow your professional network by just meeting those around you.
  • First-time freelancers aren’t sure how to start freelancing profitably. Here’s how. Don’t undervalue your services. Many clients won’t take you seriously if you underprice yourself. Don’t underestimate your revenue needs, either: Your hourly rate will likely need to be higher than you expect when doing client work to cover all your marketing and administrative time.
  • Do not let marketing distract you from providing your clients with high-quality work. Without a strong portfolio and client experience, you’ll never establish yourself.
