“How do I avoid working for low-quality clients?” (My Freelance Life 016)

Focusing on your brand identity and the type of clients you work with can make your freelance life much easier – and ultimately very successful. This week, Andy gives us his tips for attracting high-quality clients and becoming a profitable freelancer.

How exactly does Andy avoid working for lower-quality clients? He attracts higher-quality ones – by simply adjusting his approach towards clients. It’s all about not compromising on what you’re worth and who you’re willing to work with.

In this episode, we also discuss:

  • The steps involved in setting up your personal brand online and how easy it is to get caught up in it all – instead of moving forward with actually building your business.
  • Is an .io domain name ‘good for business’?
  • Should you setup a one-man freelance business or do you look for freelance partners to help you out with projects?

As always we would love to hear your thoughts!
