The Key to a Steady Freelance Income

Eggs in one basket How many sources of clients do you have now? 1? 2? Several?

If you’re like most freelancers, you have a few lead sources – possibly referrals and maybe an SEO strategy. But, if you only have one source – or your sources aren’t reliable – you’re playing a dangerous game with your freelance business. Let me explain …

I’m sure you heard the phrase: Don’t put all your eggs in one basket

And when it comes to freelancing, this has never been more true.

Imagine this: You have a great website and lots of visitors coming in via Google search results. Because of that, you have a thriving freelance business and you’re booked solid for the next few months … Sounds great, right?

But, what if Google changes the rules – again?

Overnight your website could go from position 1 to 100. And, your main source of visitors, leads, and clients would dry up, just like that. Yes, it can happen – and, it does a lot.

But if you’re smart (and I know you are), you understand you need to diversify – or set up multiple sources for visitors, leads, and clients. By diversifying your business will continue to thrive even if one of your sources dries up.

For freelancers like you, this would mean peace of mind and a steady freelance income!

That’s why, on Thursday, February 6, 2014, we’ll host the first ever Freelance Folder Live Workshop! And, we would love for you to join us!

    Excellent advice as I think any business should make sure that they’re marketing themselves in a number of different places to ensure that they’re not over reliant on a single source and Google is simply one of those place.

    Personally as a freelancer I’ve found that making sure I retain existing customers that I’ve previously worked with, to be the most successful way to keep the projects coming in. If I then try and attract a single new customer each month, I find that my contact list grows and the amount of work continues to expand.
