As a designer, I am constantly looking for ways to improve my skills. As a freelance business owner, I’m doing the same.
There are many ways to improve your freelance business that don’t necessarily involve finding clients.
While, yes, clients are a huge part of your freelance business, they shouldn’t be the only part.
One fantastic way to improve your business is to diversify your income. You never want to have all of your eggs in one basket, and diversifying your income is a great way to make sure that doesn’t happen.
“3. Diversify your income
Freelancing is not a get-rich-quick career path, and it’s not easy earning your own income. It can be quite unstable for the longest time until you can build up a reliable client base, but there’s more you can do to help stabilize your earnings.
A big freelance goal for many is to not have to solely rely on client work, and to do this you need to diversify your income. To diversify your income, you should be building more than just a client base — You should be building a product or service that can bring in additional income, even while you’re asleep (aka passive income).
Look at the skills you have, and see how you can use them to create some extra reocurring income. Repackaging your own resources or taking a little time to create something that can help others save time doesn’t take much effort.”
