Welcome back to the podcast. I’m so happy that you’re here.
I don’t know about you but I have been running around like a chicken with my head cut off lately. From end of year prep for the business to all the personal stuff that needs to get done over the holidays, I am feeling the pressure and I’m sure I’m not alone.
So before we dive in, I just wanted to remind you to take it easy during this busy season. If you need to take a breather and take a day off, do it. You’re going to produce much better work for yourself and your clients when you’re not super stressed out and overwhelmed. Trust me.
Running a business is hard all the time, but it’s even harder when you have a lot going on personally so be gentle with yourself.
Now let’s dive into what you really came for, the podcast episode.
In today’s episode, we’re chatting all about how to find high paying clients as a podcast manager.
I will tell you one thing now, you are not going to find high-quality clients if you’re using sites like Fiverr and Upwork. People looking to hire on those websites are usually looking to do it on the cheap and they are usually just looking for one thing so like just an editor or just someone to write blog posts, not someone who has the whole package like you.
So you may be wondering, well then where can I find high paying clients?
Instagram – Now this isn’t a go-ahead to message every ideal client on Instagram and start pitching them your services because that isn’t going to do you any good but following your ideal clients and engaging with them on Instagram and starting a genuine conversation with them can eventually lead to working with them if you’re patient. I think it’s important to show up on Instagram and showcase your knowledge and why someone would benefit from hiring you specifically and when people are ready for you, they will come to you. That doesn’t mean you aren’t taking action though. Your job is to show up, provide actionable content, and make connections with your ideal clients so that when they are ready for help from a podcast manager, you are the first person who comes to mind.
Facebook groups – Facebook groups can be a hit or miss but I have gotten some really great clients directly from Facebook groups. Some of them have found me directly as a result of me commenting on their post looking for help but others have found me just by me being active in the community and sharing advice for free and showing up as the go-to girl in the podcast space.
Referrals – Honestly, referrals are one of my favorite ways to get clients in general, but also to get ideal clients who are willing to pay my rates. Since these people usually come from someone who knows me and my business well, they are usually a great fit all around and have no objections to my prices.
So I would love to know, where is your current favorite place to get high paying clients from? Let me know over on Instagram. My handle is Jenny Suneson
