  • Francesca Marano: L’abc del sito del freelance

    Francesca Marano: L’abc del sito del freelance

    WordCamp Milano 2017Speaker: Francesca Marano

    October 11, 2019 — Dieci anni fa quando si iniziava un’attività la prima spesa erano i biglietti da visita. Oggi si pensa prima al sito. Spesso i freelance creano un sito senza un piano e un obiettivo chiari. È vero che WordPress rende relativamente facile la creazione di un sito, ma sarebbe meglio farsi alcune domande prima di imbarcarsi in questa impresa (sì, è epica e no, non c’è bisogno di imparare a scrivere codice).
    Tutti i freelance hanno bisogno di un sito?
    Se si decide di crearne uno, quali pagine dovrebbero assolutamente esserci?
    Quali informazioni sono utili per i lettori? Quali assolutamente inutili?
    E questi lettori poi, chi sono? E come si scrive proprio per loro.
    In questa sessione esplorerò delle domande comuni che i freelance hanno prima di costruire il proprio sito e cercherò di dare delle risposte che aiutino in questa epica impresa.

    Valérie Galassi: S’organiser quand on est freelance : être productif et penser à soi

    WordCamp Bordeaux 2019Speaker: Valérie Galassi

    April 18, 2019 — Quand on est en free lance on peut être confronté à ce grand art qu’est la procrastination. On trouve très facilement autre chose à faire plutôt que de rester concentré sur son travail.

    En tant que procratinatrice professionnelle, je voudrais partager avec vous les méthodes de travail que j’ai mises en place pour être plus efficace. Cela peut prendre du temps pour les trouver, cela a été mon cas. J’ai testé des méthodes qui au final ne me convenaient pas, d’autres que j’ai tout de suite adoptées. D’ailleurs, j’essaye toujours d’optimiser mes journées.

    Ainsi, nous verrons comment mieux nous organiser. Je vous parlerai des outils, des méthodes, des habitudes que j’ai adoptés pour m’aider à rester concentrée, à m’organiser dans mon quotidien, à m’accorder du temps bien à moi.

    J’aimerais vous donner des idées, pour que vous puissiez commencer à constituer votre propre boîte à « méthode ».

    WordCamp Johannesburg 2018Speaker: Shane Rielly

    April 9, 2019 — Many freelancers and design agencies are well aware of the feast and famine cycle that exists. Finding new work is a challenge but it is a constant requirement for generating income in your business. When there is no new work there is no income and cash flow becomes a massive challenge.
    The antidote is to generate recurring revenue, preferably on a monthly basis. In this talk I will cover some ways to increase MRR (Monthly Recurring Revenue) and how it benefits you and your clients.

We will go over some of the basics and necessary steps to incorporate a business, and give some tips and advice for freelancers with the entrepreneur bug.

A quick rundown of what will be in the speech:

    How to stop thinking like a freelancer.

    Defining your staff.

    Learning to delegate.

    LLC vs S-Corp vs Corp: What you need to know, where to file, and how to find legal resources.

    Finding the right support system of professionals to get your business started on the right foot.

    Increasing prices to pay for your bottom line.

    Find the right team members. An overview of how to hire, who to hire, and how to keep your employees happy.

    Things to consider when seeking out an office, or location to headquarter your business.

    Goal setting: think toward the future.”
