Course Description

First impressions count: written text is one of the first things a buyer sees on freelancing platforms. Learn how to write compellingly to captivate your potential clients. Once you’ve secured your first client, you’ll need to communicate your ideas on the client’s brief, figure out what they want and how, revisit the project a few times, and finally sign it off and write a review. Being able to communicate effectively will set you apart!

With this knowledge you’ll be able to:

  • Understand how to communicate with clients to create a meaningful connection

  • Optimize your work description and write your own winning pitch 

  • Build a few tips and tricks into your workflow that will make communication easier

  • Create a repository of responses and requests 

  • Know what questions to ask to get the answers you want

  • Learn how to write compelling descriptions of the work you do

  • And because things sometimes happen, practice how to mitigate conflict!
