  • Erica Mays: Launch Your Freelance Career And Do It Right

    Erica Mays: Launch Your Freelance Career And Do It Right

    WordCamp Baltimore 2017Speaker: Erica Mays

    October 20, 2017 — Freelancing is never a bad idea. You can spend as much or as little time as you want, but still reap the benefits of extra cash, flexible hours, more satisfying work, and the feeling of your own independence. However much freelance work you want to do, you need to know about the business side, legal stuff, and how to find and keep clients. I’m also going to tell you how you can use a WordPress site to tailor what clients and work you get, how to fill your portfolio to get started, how to price your work, and how to avoid making mistakes no one warned me about. Find what makes your work unique and get paid for your value!

  • Tiana Cameron: What I Learned From Making A WordPress Powered Extranet For My Freelance Biz

    Tiana Cameron: What I Learned From Making A WordPress Powered Extranet For My Freelance Biz

    WordCamp Seattle 2016Speaker: Tiana Cameron

    October 12, 2017 — One Sunday morning while reconciling my books during a slow cash flow month, I was shocked to realize that I was paying nearly $300 a month in subscriptions to run my freelancing gig! Things like invoicing, project management, contracts and growing – it was seriously getting out of control.

    Sure $7-$35 here and there was harmless, maybe even unnoticed most times. But after seeing all the subscriptions categorized (especially during a slow month) and knowing there’s over 40,000 plugins available in WordPress, I couldn’t help but wonder “What can WordPress replace?”

    And with that, I started a journey into creating (even though I didn’t realize at the time) an extranet that my clients and I both could use, all with the ultimate goal of reducing my monthly operating costs.

    This topic is about what I learned while creating my extranet and what monthly subscription services WordPress could totally replace, what it might be able to replace (depending on circumstances), what it should not replace and the unexpected benefits and head bumps I uncovered!

    Tim Sisson: Stop Saying No – Nurturing Client Relationships

    WordCamp Portland ME 2017Speaker: Tim Sisson

    June 2, 2017 — As a freelance designer, we turn down business constantly. Most small business owners undervalue the work we do and have limited budgets. Every week, I found myself turning down those dreaded “I have $300. Can you build me a website?” kind of leads.

    Then, I realized I didn’t have to. With the right strategy and confidence in your work, you can make a living on $300 jobs. But more importantly, you can convert that customer you would’ve turned down into the customer you wanted, to begin with (and still do the fun custom work we really love to do).

    We’ll discuss strategies, contracts, residual income generation, and long-term customer-focused approaches to freelance web work. We’ll also chat about keeping yourself happy in the midst of working for yourself and why those leads you’ve been turning down can be a huge asset.
