Marketing, Networking, and Building Your Client Base

with Heidi Turner

When: Four Tuesdays, February 9, 16, 23, and March 2, 2021, 7:00 to 8:30 pm

Where: All sessions are via Zoom

As a freelancer, your network is one of the most valuable tools in your marketing toolkit. Many of your jobs and potential clients will come via referrals from people you know, both personally and professionally. But how do you grow your network? How do you reach out to let people know you're looking for clients without feeling awkward about it? How do you market your business effectively while still taking on client projects?

This workshop is designed to give you tools to effectively grow your network and to use your network to build your client base.

In these workshops we will explore how to:

  • Talk to others about what you do
  • Develop a networking plan
  • Approach your contacts to let them know you're available for work
  • Use social media to market yourself
  • Communicate with potential clients
  • Write letters of introduction
  • Build an effective LinkedIn profile
  • Grow your network
  • Identify people who can introduce you to the people you want to work with
  • Develop connections with your target clients
  • Network as an introvert (yes, it’s possible to do!)
