Rank #7: Making Connections - Graphic Designer Amber Asay

Podcast cover
Read more

Working for agencies and studios as a graphic designer since 2012, Amber Asay hated that she couldn’t interact directly with her clients. She also couldn’t show off her work in a personal portfolio, since her creations were the intellectual property of her employers. Even if she could have, she didn’t take much pride in the type of corporate branding work she had been doing.

Now she’s connected to her clients and her peers, slogging away at it, but riding a high as she charts her own path.
She still doesn’t quite have a grasp of the work-life balance. Her work often is her life, but she has a plan...

Great thoughts on working a full-time job while growing her freelancing practice, connecting, putting your work out there and more.

Rank #8: Zig-zagging along - Graphic Designer David Dooley

Podcast cover
Read more

David developed an array of skills studying multimedia at university in Ireland, and he’d freelanced on the side of full-time gigs for years, as well as going solo for a while before one of his clients took him on as an employee.

He didn’t stay long though. By then, David had caught the travel bug.

From Ireland to Central America and everywhere in between, he’s spent the past couple of years travelling the world. He never intended to work while he was away, but the jobs kept coming in, and David soon found himself living the digital nomad lifestyle.

Now settled in Mexico, where he fell in love, David’s freelancing full-time and building up his one-person studio. This is his story so far.

Rank #9: Freelance Marketing - Digital Designer Tim Brown

Podcast cover
Read more

Tim designs and develops for local SME clients in his home city of Minneapolis. They all come thanks to the work he puts into establishing himself as a digital marketing authority both with blogging and podcasting. All that whilst refining his trade with work in an agency.

Don't forget to subscribe
via iTunes and the Podcast app for iPhone etc and also via Stitcher who have an Android app, or scroll down and download from here - If you like the podcast, please do leave a review if you get a chance.

Here’s some of the key takeaway points:

  • Working for an agency gives you experience that helps you in your freelance career: the processes, the client management

  • Create content for your site that helps your potential clients - not only does it place you as an authority, but if done regularly
    massively helps your SEO

  • Create longer form blog content (think of them almost as chapters of a book - maybe one day it will be!) - it helps provide greater value for longer and establishes you as authority

  • Reach out to people and see if they will link to your site or particular posts as those links help your SEO

  • Monitor the analytics of your site/blog so you can see what’s working well for you

  • Keep your time scales for projects realistic, with ‘air’ in them for flexibility

  • Think about what you want in your contract: how will communication
    work? Will paused projects get restart fees? etc

  • When starting out, just get your website out there and evolve it as
    you go. If you need help designing so it reflects the quality of your
    brand, then hire someone!

  • Try and get some clients to hire you on a retainer so you have a
    baseline amount of money coming in each month, it takes the pressure
    off

  • Work/life balance should be what you want it to be: don’t get hung up
    on what others expect; if you love to devote a lot of time to your
    work/side projects, there’s nothing wrong with that, don’t feel
    guilty

He’s even realising what it is the companies he works (full time) for look for in high-value freelancers.

Rank #11: It's never as difficult as you think it is - Freelance Writer and Editor Sian Meades-Williams

Podcast cover
Read more

Sian started freelancing on the side 12 years ago, with one gig leading to another. When a job came along that was enough to cover rent, she left the security of employment without giving it much thought.

6 months later, Sian’s client folded and she was out of work.

She bounced back and found her niche, built relationships with clients, and grew and edited her own successful website. She now writes emails for a living and is crowdfunding her first book.

Sian chats to Steve about the lessons she's learned along the way, the fear she still feels sending pitches, and that one time the tax office threatened her with bankruptcy.

Podcast cover
Read more

Digital nomad Kelly landed her first freelance writing gig while she was on a working holiday in New Zealand. Broke and struggling to find work locally, Kelly was introduced to the online world of content mills and freelance market places.

After falling in love with a zombie-clad Brit she’d met in a haunted prison (true story!), Canadian-born Kelly found herself living and working in the UK. She spent her days looking after three-year-olds and her evenings and weekends climbing the freelance ladder.

Eventually, after more than a year of building up her portfolio and establishing a name for herself, Kelly took her freelance business full-time and hit the road again.

That was in 2011, and Kelly’s been travelling the world while she freelances ever since. We chat about how she balances work with travel, how she feels about the security of freelance life, and why she chose to de-monetise her travel blog.

Rank #18: From Russia With Linguistics - Illustrator Landysh Akhmetzyanova

Podcast cover
Read more

She trained as a Linguist. She worked as a Translator. She dreamt as an Illustrator. Eventually Landysh brought them together: co-founding Lingvistov, a Skype based language service which also allowed her illustrations to speak volumes in shouting about the business, so much so they've now become a product of their own.

She shares thoughts on collaborating to expand your ambitions, how to succeed in a business partnership and how they use content marketing to promote their business.

Don't forget to subscribe
via iTunes and the Podcast app for iPhone etc and also via Stitcher who have an Android app - If you like the podcast, please do leave a review if you get a chance. Thanks!

Here’s some of the key takeaway points:

  • Their business was born when a freelance marketplace site changed their conditions to take a bigger percentage of each job; Landysh and her partner decided they'd create their own site instead! Why be at the mercy of someone else?

  • When collaborating with others in business - be open and communicate; talk a lot about what you do and what you want to do

  • They don't have much marketing budget, instead they use content to pull people to their business as people share it: articles, videos, audio, cartoons

  • They have diversified their income; as well as the linguistic school and services, her illustrations are now available to buy in a range of products from their own shop

  • Don't feel you have to be 'normal' with a regular job, if you're passionate about something go for it, earn a living a from it

Rank #20: Remember why you started - Illustrator Martha Williams

Podcast cover
Read more

After studying Graphic Arts at uni and leaning towards the more experimental forms of art, Martha found herself working in an in-house graphic design role that left little room for creativity.

Now two years into her freelance career and living between England and Spain, Martha has built herself a flexible business where she has plenty of variety in her work.

And, more than that, Martha is now able to give herself time to work on her craft, scheduling in 5-day “holidays” where she’s free from client work and can focus entirely on her side projects.

“The idea was to become freelance so I could enjoy my life more and work on these areas that I wanted to work on,” Martha says.

Find out how she’s made that a possibility in this episode of Being Freelance.
