Task 6

Find clients

It’s time to find clients and plan for how to reach them. Follow these 3 steps:

  1. PROSPECTS - Make a list of 10 prospects (potential clients that fits into your identified audience)
  2. OUTREACH PLAN - Set an action plan for how and when you're planning to reach out to them (through what channel, to who, at what time, how often to follow up, etc.)
  3. SALES PITCH - Craft a message including your offer that you plan to send out to your list of prospects

    Optional. After getting feedback on your message in Slack, revise it, and then start contacting your prospects with your offer. You can do it!

    Note. We recommend that you keep adding and contacting 5-10 new leads per week. And don’t forget to follow up!


    Tips. You can use this outreach plan template to fill in your answers if you like.

    It’ll be the sixth part of your Freelance Plan!
