If you’re anything like me, the idea of marketing your freelance business makes you break out in a cold sweat.
On your good days, you push the idea of marketing at the back of your mind. You convince yourself you’re too busy to market. That you don’t even need to right now because hey, business is good.
But on your bad days – when you have no choice but to market your freelance business, you feel like someone’s holding a gun to your head.
And if you’re just starting out as a freelancer and need to market your business from scratch – God help you.
