Get More Clients as a Web Designer with these Social Psychology Tips

Posted in Freelance, Tips, Web Design12 months ago • Written by 15 Comments

Several years ago, I enrolled in a self-improvement course which taught me a concept I found pretty useful to get more clients for my freelancing career.

If you want to “hit” a goal, you need to focus on two things:

  • Trying to hit the goal as much as possible, called goal intensity.
  • Trying to increase your chances for each hit, called goal efficiency.

Let me explain with a simple example. Let’s say your goal is to get ten dates this month. How do you go about doing it? You could spend all your time at the gym, attending self-improvement courses and so on. These things won’t help you get dates directly, but when the time comes to ask a girl out, these things will indirectly help you increase the chances that she’ll say yes.

6 Tips to Stay Focused on Project Deadlines

Posted in Tips, Web Design2 years ago • Written by 2 Comments

Staying focused on your goals may be difficult at times as a freelancer. Not having a nine-to-five job, selecting your own clients, setting your own rates and deadlines and also doing PR work for yourself is quite different than being a full-time employee in a web design agency, where many of the things above are done by different individuals or departments. One of the most difficult things I encountered when I started as a freelancer was staying focused on the deadlines. And not only keeping my focus, but also meeting the deadline and delivering the project on time – at the end of the day, this is one of the most important things alongside the quality of your work.

Punch Procrastination in the Face and Accomplish Your Goals

Posted in Freelance, Tips, Web Design2 years ago • Written by 6 Comments

Working from home or even an office as a freelancer can be very rewarding. Free time, creating your own schedule, the chance to be your own boss—the freelancing life is one that a lot of people envy.

Unfortunately, without a boss or supervisor breathing down your neck, the accountability starts to decrease and freelancers can become entangled in a web of distractions and procrastination without even realizing it.

Facebook, emails, Twitter, blog comments, your mother calling to gossip about the family —all of these and more vie for your attention.
