The Top 10
Freelancers & Agencies
As the WordPress freelance market continues to grow it also continues to get more competitive, so we’re always looking for new ways to consistently generate quality leads. From coworking spaces to Upwork and online classifieds, this post gives you 5 new ways to generate leads for your freelance WordPress web design business.
If you’ve been a WordPress freelancer for a while then you probably already know that how a client project begins is a pretty good indicator of how it will end up. A questionnaire is your secret weapon to ensure you ask the right question every time and your client gives you everything you need to exceed their expectations. Here's how to create the ultimate WordPress client project questionnaire.
The average small business has a poor experience having their business website built on WordPress. As WordPress professionals, this is a failure on our part. If, as a community of WordPress professionals, we can align on the kind of consistent, quality experience we want to give out clients (the one they deserve), we’ll raise the bar in the WordPress ecosystem and our rates will raise accordingly.
Are you having trouble closing leads? Changing how you follow-up with prospective clients could help. Many freelancers follow up in a way that seems desperate, which could be a turn-off to prospective clients. Instead, try following up in a way that builds authority, positions you as an expert and builds a relationship.
Recurring Revenue Products & Services
As entrepreneurs (and especially as developers) we frequently undervalue our products and services. This not only leaves money on the table, but it’s also bad for your customers. Undercharging jeopardizes the future of the product or service they depend on. Paying what it’s worth supports the ongoing maintenance and development of the product. One way to fix this is with value-based pricing.
For a website creation and designing business, one of the most important things you can do is make it clear to your potential clients that your services provide a positive return on investment. This isn’t just limited to building the site initially. If you can convince a client to pay you to continually upkeep the site, the recurring income will provide you with a good bit of stability and freedom in your work.
WordPress agencies and freelancers typically live on a constant stream of clients. Finish one job, get paid, and move onto the next. This can function as a steady income stream, but the constant need for more work limits the flexibility that many people are looking for from this kind of job. The ideal solution for many is recurring income.
Plugins & Themes
When you own a WordPress plugin or theme business, the big challenge is getting enough people to pay for it. This is where free trials come in. Free trials come in many forms, but if done right they can boost conversions. This article goes in-depth into all the options, advantages, and considerations, covering everything you need to know about free trials for a WordPress plugin or theme business.
