You’ve probably felt this:
You enjoy doing your freelance work. You have clients. And your clients pay you. But you get paid less than you’re worth.
You watch other freelancers get paid big $$$, but you can’t see how they’re *that* different from you.
Lemme tell you the difference.
I used to be in that spot. For me, a little shift in values meant the difference.
This little shift has made me able to turn tiny gigs into large projects.
I focus on R O I.
My no. 1 priority is getting the client the best ROI possible. When I write copy or do marketing strategy for a client, I want them to make their money back—multiple times over.
Here’s where the magic happens:
Sometimes, a client wants a piece of copy which is NOT the best way to increase his bottom line.
Then, I tell him what to do instead to see maximum returns. Sometimes, this will mean turning down the client.
Sometimes, this will mean turning a $200 gig into a four-figure project.
You can easily do the same: Focus on a value different from maximizing your revenue.
This will allow you to make more and work with better clients—and have happier clients, which leads to more testimonials.
