Getting Clients to Treat You Like an Agency

On today’s show, I’m joined by a good friend of mine, Chelsea Baldwin as a special guest coach. Together, we coach Australian freelancer-turned-agency-builder Caroline.

She has built up a nice freelance business and has begun to work with subcontractors to begin scaling her business.

But she’s realizing it’s harder to transition from solo freelancer to full-on agency than she initially expected. Chelsea and I coach her on two critical tasks:

How to get her clients to start treating her like an agency—instead of a freelancer. And how to get the word out about her new agency and start bringing in fresh clients even if she doesn’t feel quite ready.

We wrap up the episode with some really strong advice from Chelsea on getting new clients with Linkedin. Join us on this jam-packed episode.
