Create a killer profile

Once you are done with selecting a job market. Your next main concern is a unique and catchy profile. Remember, the first impressions will make all the difference. You can find some good examples on the web. Some tricks to remember will be to keep in simple but details. The first three sentences are very important. Make them unique and catchy. If your introduction is not catchy enough, a potential client may skip you. 


Don’t apply for a low fee

Many make this mistake. This not only lowers your standard but also creates an imbalance in the market. Don’t apply for too low. If possible avoid customers that are offering too low prices. Always quote an appropriate fee for your service. You can check different forums to see current market rates.  


Keep clients updated

Once you land a job, keep your clients updated on job progress. Remember, communication is the key. If you don’t keep good communication in design jobs, be prepared to do a lot of redos. Even then, you may get a bad review after work. Keeping your client updated will save you the trouble. At least give an update every two days.


Don’t over-promise

Don’t promise anything you can’t deliver. It can be the delivery time or function of the design. Always deliver what you promise. Deliver more than what you promised for good reviews and repeat clients. 


 Upgrade membership

Upgrading membership not only gives you more exposure and advantages but also credibility. When selecting freelancers, clients look for credibility first. Your past work samples can be your credibility. Let’s just say you are a new designer. You will not have past work experience to boost your credibility. High-grade membership can show you are serious about your profession. In most market places high-grade membership comes with a lower cut from the market.


Creating tutorials

A lot of people are trying to improve themselves on the internet. There are a lot of tutorials. But, when it matters most you will rarely find tutorials that meet your needs. Create amazing tutorials and post them on Udemy or other tutorials site. For creating the tutorials, you can use some free or paid software.

You can even create simple tutorials for them. Doing so regularly will create a loyal fan base. You divert them to your store to up sale number. You can earn from advertisements and sponsorship. You can also earn from Patreon. All you need is skill and dedication.
