The Top 10
Freelancers & Agencies
You don’t have to wait until you onboard a client to start building a relationship with them and establishing trust. Generating loyalty with your audience can happen at any time. A great way to start making those genuine connections is by giving them something of great value. With a content upgrade, not only do visitors acquire a free and super valuable resource, but you now have a way to directly get in touch with leads by email.
When you onboard new clients, is it fair to say that collecting pertinent information at this stage is one of the greatest pain points in your process? It doesn’t have to be that way, though, if you can power your WordPress site to do it for you. In today’s tutorial, I’m going to show you how to systemise the client onboarding and information intake process with contact forms and pages.
When we bring on a new client, we go through a pretty extensive discovery process. We’re of the belief that the most valuable branding work is authentic to that individual client. So we want to get to know them as well as we can before we try to represent them with visual design. Before you start developing a brand for a client, here are the things you need to understand about that client.
Here are 14 mistakes freelancers make when creating a project estimate and how to fix them or avoid them all together.
Ways to Make Money
I never thought this would happen to me, ever. In 2 years I went from making $20k to $80k, then $150k in 2018 (see my income reports). I did this by dropping all my SEO clients and tried making money with affiliate marketing (I write tutorials on SEO and website speed). 90% of my affiliate income comes from referring people to SiteGround.
If you’re in the WordPress industry and want to make money through affiliate marketing, I have the perfect list for you. I rely on these WordPress affiliate programs to make a living and make $10,000/month endorsing hosts, themes, WordPress developers on freelancer.com, and even SEO services. So instead of managing tons of client projects (like I used to), I’ve basically found an affiliate program for everything and just make commissions. I have a LOT more free time and my affiliate income is honestly more consistent than any income I was making through consulting.
When it comes to making money with WordPress, I’ve tried everything. Website design, SEO consulting, speed optimization, freelancing, Google AdSense. I made OK money with these, but it wasn’t until I started blogging full-time (and doing affiliate marketing) that I began making sustainable, passive income that was more than I had dreamed. Here’s how.
Most people view design and entrepreneurship as separate skillsets… But doesn’t it make sense to combine them? I decided that it did, so I started Despreneur, a magazine for design entrepreneurs. Over the next 3 years, I grew it into a multi-author platform where people could learn about tech, design, and business, and then, in 2016, once I felt that it was time for me to move on, I sold it for a considerable (to me, at least) amount of money. Here’s what I learned.
Your blog can’t be successful without an audience. Simply writing content and expecting people to stumble upon it isn’t enough if you want to grow your audience. We’ll also look at some successful blogs and identify the tools they use to grow their audience, including SEO, converting visitors to followers, and using social media to build engagement.
In the first post in this series about blogging with WordPress (and making money from it!), I looked at how you can find a niche for your blog if you want to make money from it. In this second part, I’ll walk you through the process of getting your blog ready to go. You may think this is a simple case of installing WordPress, getting yourself a suitable theme, and starting to write. But if you’re going to be successful, you need to spend some time preparing your blog.
