JMS419: How to Seduce Potential Clients Into Hiring You
Shortly after I divorced from my first wife, I found myself going down the rabbit hole of the online PUA/dating/seduction world. And, to be honest, it helped me in a lot of ways. A lot of weird stuff. A lot of stuff that I tried and it failed miserable. And, a few things that worked. I remarried, have 3 kids with my second wife and we're going on 14 years, now. In any case, when I started freelancing, I noticed the parallels between dating and selling. And, there's one "technique" I learned from the online dating world that I've used to devastating effect when negotiating with potential clients. That's what I cover in this episode.

JMS416: How to Become a Full-Time Freelancer
I got this question from Ryan: "Thanks a lot for your resources online. I just want to hear your insight about job transition from a regular job to freelancing. Which is better? To quit a job and work full time as a web design freelancer/entrepreneur? Or start taking free project first while working on a regular job, and only quit when I already have paid projects? Or at least if you still remember when you started, how long it took before you get paid projects after offering free projects to clients? I’m actually in the stage of job transition and I’m 100% ready for web design. However, I’m hesitant to quit my job because maybe it will take many months or a year before getting paid projects. I know my question is a case to case basis but by hearing your experience and advice will enlighten me a lot! Thank you so much!" It's four things. When I started freelancing, I tried to make the transition to full-time a few times. And, I had a couple false starts. Which are demoralizing. I definitely had my moments of "Should I just give up on this freelance thing?" But, finally, I was able to make the switch and never look back. And, it's been almost 10 years now that I've been full-time from home. What I learned from that are four things you can do to not only make the transition easier and less anxious, but also much more likely you'll make it successfully the FIRST time. I cover those four things in this episode.

JMS413: Keep Pushy Clients In Check
Every client will push try to push the scope of your freelance projects. It's rare to find one that won't. And, if you let them, not only will they walk all over you and take advantage... it can cause a project to fall apart and both sides end up unhappy. So, it's your job to manage scope. Not just for you, but for the client, as well. How? There's four things that you can do... from how you sell your services, through the project and even to months AFTER the project has ended to keep scope (and clients) in check AND generate repeat business. If you do these four things, not only will your "pushy client" problem likely go away, but you're more likely to have existing clients coming to you for repeat business. Anyway, I cover two of the four in this episode.

JMS409: How to Rank in Google for Key Freelancer Search Terms
This episode is about how to rank in Google for your key freelance search terms. The keywords that will bring you targeted visitors looking to hire someone. Can you imagine what would happen if you ranked #1 for a search term that got 6,600 searches per month and was all people wanting to hire someone right now? That's the idea. And, it breaks down to two steps: 1. Create a piece of long-form, cornerstone content designed to rank high for these terms AND pre-sell your services. 2. Create shorter supplemental content that links to your cornerstone content and builds up is link value and thus its ranking in Google. That's what every serious SEO and blogger is out there doing right now. But, for us freelancers, it's easier because our search terms are often riddled with blatant ads. So, ranking good content is often a lot easier on these terms. Of course, details matter. WHAT topic should your cornerstone content be about? How should you write it to both rank and pre-sell your services? What should your supplemental content be about? How do you link in a way you don't get Google-slapped? All that. That's what I cover in this episode.

JMS404: The Top 5 Mistakes All Freelancers Should Avoid
I've made a lot of mistakes in my 15 years as a freelancer. Some that held me back or kept me limited for years. And while I think, most of the time, that experience is invaluable. Certain mistakes should be avoided at all cost. They're simply too debilitating. And, the only valuable lesson you learn from is "not to do do it". These are those mistakes and what I've learned over the years to avoid them.
