Once you've requested a ticket and are introduced to the client, it's best practice to submit a custom pitch explaining why you're a great fit for the work.
We've found that clients tend to pass on freelancers if they get introductions and/or see profiles that don't match up to the request that they submitted.
While it takes a few extra minutes to customize your pitch, it can really make you stand out and impress. Isn't that what we all want?
Here's a couple of quick tips...
- Clients expect a custom introduction that addresses why you're a great fit for the specific job posting.
- Clients tend to check your FreeUp profile and want to see examples of work relevant to the ticket. If you need help updating your profile, we are happy to help.
- Clients typically do not like to see intros with a full rundown of all your possible skills and services. They prefer intros that only directly talk about why you are a good fit for the specific ticket they posted.
- Send your introduction not only via email, but through the Messenger System too.
Following these simple best practices can increase your chances of landing more clients through the FreeUp Marketplace.
