October: Project Scoping For Freelancers
Are you just starting out and have no idea what to charge for your work? An experienced freelancer curious how to prevent client issues from arising mid-project?
This interactive workshop will walk you through best practices for scoping projects, from setting rates to setting boundaries. You don’t have to figure it all out alone! We'll cover:
- How to clearly scope your project--and why it matters
- Guidelines for setting rates
- Avoiding issues with clients
Whether you've been marketing yourself online for years or are just getting started, you'll walk away with a whole new bag of tricks.
There will also be time to network with other freelancers who may be able to offer tips you hadn’t considered before.
Regardless of industry, we all share similar experiences as independent business owners! We try to ensure everyone leaves with insights and connections that will help their business thrive.
