Discover how you can sign more high-paying freelance clients using a simple, four-step checklist.
This may sound crazy at first. But here me out…
I think getting clients is actually pretty simple.
It’s not easy.
But it is simple.
In Fact, You Really Only Need To Know Four Basic Details In Order To Sign A Client
And I’ll tell you what they are in a second.
But first, I also don’t want to be one of those people who makes it seem like a brand-new freelancer can get a $5,000/month retainer client in a few weeks with no experience.
That’s just not realistic for most people — despite what a lot of these online freelancing courses say on their sales pages.
So even though I’m going to distill signing clients into its simplest form here…
To get good at signing clients, you need to know that there are many other supporting skills you’ll want to build.
Like sales, proposal strategy, and how to make yourself stand out in a crowded market.
But at the most basic level, you only need to know four things to sign a client.
And The Goal Of Your Sales Process Should Be To Get Your Prospects To Agree To The Terms On This Simple, Four-Part Checklist
To sign a client, you need to come to an agreement about…
- The deliverables and services you will provide.
- The timeline you will follow for the project.
- The fee you will charge for the work you do.
- The payment terms (like 50% to start and 50% later).
As soon as your prospect agrees to these four items, you have all the information you need to send a contract and invoice.
And once the contract is signed and the invoice is paid…
You’ll have a brand-new client on your roster, along with a hefty new payment in your bank account.
So don’t make getting clients more complicated than it needs to be.
Focus your efforts on coming to an agreement on these four points with your potential clients.
And as you work on your salesmanship, proposals, and other client-acquisition skills…
Always keep in mind that your ultimate goal is getting the client to agree to these four terms.
It will make your life way easier. Plus it will also help you book a lot more business.
