Pitching Clients 101

You know that clients = income with your freelance business. But the idea of pitching clients? Eeek! That send you running in the other direction.

What if landing your first (and subsequent!) client didn’t have to be so scary?

What if you could pitch the right clients—and with confidence?

Here’s the thing: you NEED clients if you want your business to bring in any money.

It’s that simple.

No clients, no income.

It doesn’t matter how awesome your skillset is: if you don’t have the ability to market yourself well, then you’re going to get lost in the noise.

After all, your clients aren’t going to magically appear out of thin air! You have to put in the work to find them.

But it doesn’t need to be an intimidating process.

(Really!)

You can land your first client, and your next 5, 10, 20+ clients, with confidence and without fear, when you know HOW to reach out and pitch them.

Pitching Clients 101 teaches you how to do exactly that. 

This program will enable you to FINALLY land your first client… and you can use the strategies in Pitching Clients 101 to reach out to and pitch future clients again and again.

…which also means you’ll bring in a steady income for your business!

Pitching clients leads to getting hired to work on projects.

Working on projects leads to making money from your awesome freelancing skills.

And as you bring in more and more of an income, you’ll have the ability to…

  • Quit your day job
  • Go on that vacation you’ve always wanted
  • Save money for a house
  • Relieve the financial burden from your spouse
  • Give back to the community and donate to causes you care about
  • …or whatever else you’d love to do in life!

It all begins with the right pitch — and we’re here to help you with that.


About Your Instructors…

Hi! We’re Sagan and Dan. Between the two of us, we have nearly 20 years of combined business experience.

Although we’re business partners now with our communications education agency (Juxta Communications), we’ve also had various other solo businesses in the past: nutrition consulting, digital marketing, and freelance writing/editing/social media management.

…Which means we’ve had to work at finding new clients again and again over the years!

To be honest, we’re both introverts. We aren’t naturals at selling. In fact, neither of us LIKE being salesy.

However, we’ve gotten really good at getting clients over the years… and we’ve discovered ways that work well for us (yes, even as introverts!).

You don’t need to be salesy or extroverted to pitch clients with confidence! You just need the right strategies and tried-and-true methods to help you out. That’s exactly what you’ll get in Pitching Clients 101.

“Sagan is really engaging! She has an impressive screen presence and speaks clearly and succinctly. Sagan has plenty of personality, but it doesn’t distract from her points. She highlights what’s important without overdoing it and shares concrete information. Juxta Communications has a supportive, inspiring vibe, and they’ve proven that they have great value in their e-courses!”
