A step by step online course for graphic designers wanting to earn more as a freelancer

Hey There Talent

I know you’re dying to make more money in your freelance business without the struggle and hustle

You’re imagining…

Consistent income each month without the stress
More clients saying yes to working with you over the competition
Less time in front of the MacBook and more time with friends and family
 

The only problem?

  • – There’s so much competition out there, and potential clients often pick other designers over you
  • – When you do land a client, they bully and push you around
  • – Clients haggle you to get the lowest price
  • – You’re sick of the inconsistent peaks and troughs in your business and can’t see how it can ever change

I hear you!

Being a freelancer can be challenging.
You’re a talented designer, but you’re also a business owner. It’s not just about being great at design, it’s about acquiring the business skills to build your empire, knowing how to differentiate and position yourself in the market, how to sell yourself, grow and expand and so much more.
I Know, because I’ve done it myself.

Hi, Im Sarah

Graphic Designer, Branding Specialist, Owner of Sarah Rose Design, Digital Nomad
For years I flurried around in my business. I was hustling to get clients, re-designing my website 5 times over, doing flyer drops, and trying to win clients on social media to no avail. I tried everything Google told me to do, but I felt completely overwhelmed, stressed and constantly burnt out. I had no idea who to turn to or where to source the information I needed to grow.

Through years of trial and error, spending thousands of dollars on programs and coaches, and finally pin pointing that sweet spot where clients were saying yes to working with me over the competition, I turned my freelance business around. I enjoyed the design work but eventually I worked out how to outsource, resulting in more time off from my business, while still profiting. It has become my mission to help other freelancers up-level in their business with ease, and give them everything they need to succeed. That’s why I created this course – freelance graphic designer success – to help passionate designers build a profitable and sustainable business.

 

What people are saying…

I’m really enjoying the course so far! It’s really got me thinking about my business and where I see going. I’ve finally got a vision and it’s gorgeous! I’m so excited! This is the kick in the butt I needed to stop chasing my tail and actually get a solid process in place! I’m so excited! Thank you, Sarah.

Modules in more details

Here’s what you’ll gain from each module

1. Mindset

Having a positive mindset wired for wealth and success is crucial if you want to succeed in business. Look at any successful person and I guarantee they have a positive, abundant mindset that helps them see and latch on to amazing opportunities. In this chapter I show you the easy steps I took (and still take daily) that transformed my poverty mindset wired for burnout and failure into one built for wealth and success.

This stuff is real. I can guarantee all of the A listers practised these techniques that helped catapult them into the positions they are in today.

2. Look Like A Pro

Set up your website, welcome packs, terms and conditions, price list and heaps more!

In this chapter I teach you how to:
– Set up your website (I give you the exact layout you need to follow)
– How to write your value proposition (your point of difference) to appeal to your target market. This is an absolute necessity and something I see 99% of freelancers fail to do properly on their websites.
– I teach you how to package yourself up and niche down so you can charge a premium for your service
– I give you my own Terms and Conditions (these have saved me and gotten me paid)
– You get my own design brief (so you can avoid ALL miscommunication breakdowns and going back and forth with clients)
– My very own templates for your media kit and price list
– My own welcome pack and all other documentation I use in my business to cover my ass!

This chapter ensures you’re set up with a solid foundation and legal documents to succeed.

3. Automation

 

Reduce wasted time by automating your on-boarding process and quoting clients, even booking client appointments!

In this chapter I teach you how to completely automate your business! Giving you more time to focus on the important stuff, like building your business up in speedy time!

If you’re still custom quoting every client who enquires with you or emailing back and forth trying to win a project, you’re doing it wrong and wasting a whole lot of time.

I’ll teach you how to:
 Automate your quoting process (that’s right, no more custom quoting and umming and aahing what to charge them)
– Automate client bookings 
(if you’re emailing clients back and forth, you’re stuck in the dark ages). Client appointments are necessary to show them who’s a professional, who’s the boss which builds rapport and creates mutual trust
– Get you set up with systems and processes
 which is essential in business and will simplify your life, as well as impress the heck out of your clients, giving you a greater chance of referrals! $$$

4. Marketing

Set up your sales funnel and stand out among the competition

Learn all the marketing techniques and tools I have trialed and testing in my own business, like:
– Building an email list

– Setting up marketing funnels

– to Pitching and winning jobs online. 

An absolutely must have and critical chapter in the course to help you build your business long term

5. Relationship Building (b2b)

Win ongoing work that secures consistent income month after month!

In this chapter you will learn how you can build relationships with businesses that secure you ongoing work every month.

It’s great to win a 1 on 1 client in your business, but that can take a lot of work. It’s better to have a consistent flow of business from larger businesses. And I’m going to show you how to set these relationships up to enable you ongoing work on autopilot.

This is the sustainable way to build your freelance business.

6. Outsourcing

Want more time away from the laptop? Learn how I outsource and still make money in my biz

Lastly, I teach you how to build a team that you can outsource work to, while still making a profit in your business.

Do you want less time in front of the computer and more time spent with friends and family?
Want to scale your business but not sure how to fit it all in?
Learn how to grow your business in this chapter without losing time or money.
