I worked as a freelancer for a short time but I learn many forms freelancing as a freelancer. Some of the best strategies for winning projects in the freelancing market.
1. Don’t use the word “bid” (even in your own proposal header). It shows that you’re thinking about your work as a commodity or asset. You need to have the lowest price to win the job. Your attitude determines your cost, which determines whether or not clients will hire you.
2. Focus on helping the client, not to get the project. Clients don’t care about giving you a job, they need to complete their goals. If you satisfy the client that you are present to help him not to get a project, by giving him some reasons why you want to work with the client? If you succeed to satisfy the client.
3. About yourself don’t use too many words ‘I’. If your proposals are full of the word ‘I’ then this shows you are not writing very good proposals. This will affect you to get projects from clients.
4. Use the client’s name and word “you” as much as possible. Whenever you use the word “you” you’re pointing to the client and their goals, which means you’re apparently on the right track.
5. Think of your proposal as a conversation, not a sales letter. No one likes a sales letter proposal. The major point of your proposal should be to move your client to a phone call, message, or skype call. This makes it easier to get hired for the project.
6. In your proposal you should ask for a 05-minute call to talk more about their project. You can ask for a video call on skype but voice calls are low pressure, 5 minutes isn’t a lot of time so, clients like talking about their projects.
7. Your proposal ends with a question. If the client reacts to your question you now have an open chance of getting hired but this will also depend upon what type of conversation you do, you satisfy your client or not.
For biding in every project proposal is the main factor so when you are bidding on a project consider these points in mind this will help you to get the project. In last freelancing is also based on your luck but you should complete your work.
