Freelancers have lots of different ways of finding their next gig.
In-person networking. Applying to contract gigs online. LinkedIn. Content marketing. Referrals. Even the dreaded Upwork.
And each one of these methods has its own merits. But if your objective is to get a freelance project, then there’s a faster, more direct way to do it.
It’s called cold email pitching, and freelancers around the world have used it to get big, meaty projects, find work with Fortune 500 companies, and quickly scale up their freelance operations to the point where they had no choice but to start hiring team members.
Why does cold email work so well? And so quickly?
Firstly, it does something critically important: it bypasses the gatekeepers. No more having to make small talk with the decision-maker’s colleague’s assistant’s assistant. No more having to bribe the receptionist to forward your message.
Secondly, it positions you at THE expert who can solve their most pressing problem, and it does so in an engaging way. Forget about those lame cover letters and stupid resumes – cold email is how you create a sense of familiarity.
And finally, it’s repeatable. Once you get a solid handle on how cold email works, you can scale up your outreach efforts and send as many emails as it takes to land that next project (or even train an assistant to do it!)
