Marketing when shy
I am really good at being shy and really rubbish at self-promotion. They say write about what you know – and boy do I know about this topic. Being a freelancer marketing is huge part of my job and a huge part of marketing is self-promotion. So, this post focuses on ideas of how to approach self-promotion if you’re an introvert.

Resize your images
The quickest way to speed up any web page is to look at the images. First up is the dimensions – if a web image is a full page (like a header) or a half a page wide then ignore them for now. But resize the others, such as any icons or a small profile image of team members, so they are the dimensions they will be shown on the large screens. Find other tips in the blog post - Jules x

Word of mouth - marketing for shy people
Word of mouth is the golden egg of marketing for shy people as other people are doing the promoting for us. So, make it easy for them – if you find it difficult to ask for feedback or reviews then take yourself out of the process by automating it. More ideas for marketing when you are shy in the post link

Find your tribe
A supportive group can be such a life-line when you are self-employed and even more so when you are shy. From exchanging ideas and experiences to practical and emotional support. Not to mention exchanging discount codes! I know I would not have progressed to where I am without mine.

website mobile optimisation
Web design is distinctly unsexy and I am fine with that. It is geeky and practical with a sprinkling of aesthetics. But considering I love what I do and who I am, even for me the phrase ‘website mobile optimisation’ may be one of the biggest turn offs in my profession. It just sounds so dull and to be quite honest despite my elaborate efforts to make you think otherwise – it is. BUT. It is so important.

The key word in this sentence is in your website, not just on your website - your contact form is integral to the success of your business. Your contact form can work hard for you and save you time!

website image sizes
I gave up, twice this weekend. It was taking too long. No, not the queue for ice-cream, I’d never give up on that. I mean waiting for a new website page to load. Slow websites are the first block in the road to you reaching your customers and there are many, many things you can do to speed them up. But the quickest and most effective one is to sort out your website image sizes. This guide will make sure your website performs the best it can for you and your business.

Freelancer client relations
I’m not fickle, just busy! As a busy freelancer, going from job to job, it can be difficult to maintain an ongoing relationship with a client once the job is over. I know I have allowed past clients to just drift away despite having formed a great working relationship with them because I was too focused on the next client, and then I let that relationship slip because I was focused on the next. All the marketing gurus tell us that it is easier to get repeat business than new business. more>
