Ingrid Boersma has worked in the Marketing and Communications industry for over 8 years with a special focus on small to mid-sized companies within the French wine industry. Recently, she has decided to pivot her business and reposition her company by focusing on content marketing and copywriting for larger companies within the wine, beer, and travel industry.
Ingrid joins me for this On Air Coaching to learn about managing her time and charging her worth as a freelance copywriter. I discuss some of the mistakes many service providers make when starting their journey into freelancing and how to avoid those mistakes before launching a business. I also explain why it’s important for freelancers to set long-term goals, strategies for building your portfolio as a freelance copywriter, and the importance of raising your rates quickly as you grow your business.“When selling your time you will possibly charge too little and fill their time with clients.” - Sigrun
