EPISODE 244 SHOW NOTES
Have you tried the Facebook group route for landing freelance clients? On today’s episode, I am sharing with you exactly how to land clients via Facebook groups. I believe Facebook groups are a great way to land freelance clients so let’s break down the steps to landing clients this way.
1.Pick 3-5 Facebook groups
Don’t join every single group out there. Find the 3-5 best ones for you to start with. To determine which ones to join — know who your ideal client is and keywords to describe them. Type these keywords into a Facebook group search bar, filter by groups, and start joining! Join ones that have higher engagement rates and less people.
2. Join the conversation!
Once you’ve narrowed down your groups, join in on the conversation. Start answering questions, celebrate other entrepreneurs, respond to the “I’m hiring” posts and make sure you pay attention to the promo days and utilize them!
3. Be consistent.
Commit to showing up at least 5 days out of the week for at least 30 days. Spend 10-20 minutes per group engaging in these groups. We have a challenge in the Live Free Academy that helps with this consistency and accountability and we have seen students go from 0 to sometimes 4+ clients in 30 days so consistency is key!
4. Evaluate and refine.
Was your strategy effective? What changes can you make? The way to know if you are on the right track is if you have had discovery calls booked. Even before that, if you are having people talk back to you and have conversations outside of the group, you are on the right track.
5. Land the client!
Once you have your discovery call, you’ll send a proposal, contract, and invoice. Once those are accepted, signed, sealed, and paid, you’ve landed your first client!
Don’t forget, the template shop is now open and one of the products is a Discovery Call Script and a mini course on how to win clients in Facebook groups so head to www.micalaquinn.com/shop to check those out!

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!
