EPISODE 237 SHOW NOTES
I’m excited to start a new series called quick freelance questions series. In this series, I am answering questions I get asked often! On today’s episode I am answering the question: Do I need to have an active social media presence to land clients?
The answer is: No! (But with a caveat) I do not believe that you need an active social media presence to land freelance clients. I don’t recommend it in the beginning especially because it takes a lot of time and you’re trying out different services in the beginning to see what you want to offer and who you want to work with. It takes time to figure this out and there are so many ways to land clients that doesn’t involve having an active social media presence.
I chat with you more in this episode about if I think you need an active social media presence if you are going to be a social media manager or pivot into a premium service — the answer is still no!
The caveat to this is if you’re not focused on retainer clients, and focused on project based work, you may want to think about developing your social presence as a way to keep you pool of potential clients full.
If working on your social media is something that makes you happy and something you want to work on, then go ahead! But it’s absolutely not need in order to land clients. Landing clients requires building a solid foundation.

More about the Live Free Podcast with Micala Quinn:
How do I get started? What if I fail? Who will hire me? Is it really possible to create a consistent, full-time income from home?
Welcome to the Live Free Podcast with Micala Quinn where we will be answering these questions PLUS many more! Whether you’re just starting your freelance business (heck even if you don’t know what freelancing is yet) or you’re looking to scale, this podcast will give you tangible business advice along with inspiring interviews to help you create a life and career that works for YOU and YOUR family.
Your host, Micala Quinn, started out teaching high-school English, but when her first child was born, she immediately began searching for something more. She wanted a way to stay-at-home with her daughter (and future babies), but still needed to bring in a full-time income to help support her family. Micala started freelancing, quickly replaced her full-time income, and now helps other moms (like you) get started and grow their freelance business from scratch to 5K and beyond! She believes that being a working mom or a stay-at-home mom no longer needs to be a black and white decision. You CAN have both. On your terms!
Our motto is Mom Strong, Work Smart, and Live Free. Are you in? We’d love for you to join us each Monday, as well as in our Live Free Podcast Facebook community!
