Thriving Networks: Marketing and Connecting that Works (NY)
Nov 12, 2013 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm| $35
Building a supportive network – and being a resource to others – requires a new way of thinking. Instead of taking what gigs come along through word-of-mouth and hoping your income stays steady, it’s much better to plan ahead to build and nurture your network over time. The entire process is much more intentional than most freelancers are used to being.
In this workshop led by freelance expert and career coach Justine Clay, freelancers will learn a new and more open mindset: How to see the world as one big networking opportunity after another, to see opportunities you would otherwise miss.
You’ll also learn how to talk about yourself without bragging, use social media without getting overwhelmed (especially if you’re shy or introverted), and get expert insight into the best marketing tools for freelancers.
You will leave with:
A description of your ideal project and ideal client
An elevator pitch for the ideal client
A map of your existing network
An understanding of how to fit social media into your marketing plan
Clarity on what you need and how to find it.
This workshop is part of our new series, Freelance 360. Learn more about why we started the series here. Bringing freelancers together to learn from each other is what Freelance 360 and Freelancers Union is all about.
