What Do You Provide?

Continuing with last post in becoming a good freelancer, let’s explore what is what you as a freelance provide.

What do people buy when they buy something from you?

People buy the experience of dealing with a human who is empathetic, honest and determined to push you.

When you work with me, you get a work of passion. Something which you can take and level it up more. And I am there – for you to bring out the best narrative.

Leave out the easy, repetitive, generic stuff… What you are doing that’s difficult?

The thing which is difficult which I add is –

  • Bringing a personal connection to the work
  • More ideas to help in the big picture
  • Commitment to grow together
  • Your pain points will be addressed
  • I will hear
  • And I will connect at deeper level
  • Make the work which you will be proud of
  • A sense of better human being

That’s it. Go ahead and answer the same – if you want to become a professional freelancer.

List 10 Things You Deliver To Your Client – Things that aren’t the thing. Things like timeliness, confidence, respect, a story, etc.

  • Empathy
  • Understanding of their pain points
  • Making them proud of the result
  • Listening them
  • Making their project personal to mine
  • Becoming their partner in ideas
  • Recommending them resources
  • Standing for them
  • Giving the more as required
  • Giving the more when not required

Because merely being better isn’t of value if you are late or keep on giving excuses

Deliver something to people they value
