#204 Automate & Monetize Your Email List with Evergreen Newsletters with Toyin Alli show art #204 Automate & Monetize Your Email List with Evergreen Newsletters with Toyin Alli

Unicorns Unite: The Freelance Digital Marketing Virtual Assistant Community

One of the reasons I love to offer marketing services is I saw very quickly in my freelancer career that if I leaned into marketing and less management, less operations, and less admin, then I had more freedom. Marketing really lends itself to getting ahead. Even if your clients are requiring a weekly task, you can get organized, you can systematize, you can batch things, and you can work on your schedule.  My guest today, Toyin Alli, has a really good marketing service that you could offer as a freelancer that gives you (and your client) that time freedom. Toyin is a math professor and...

Unicorns Unite: The Freelance Digital Marketing Virtual Assistant Community

Here’s what I see happen with freelance service providers: We jump in, we book our first clients, and then we never look back and never take the time to up-level our positioning and assets so we can attract bigger clients who value us and who pay more.  This becomes a problem when you’re ready for project rates because you're not positioned as an expert if you're still looking like a generalist. We’re trying to be premium service providers and we're trying to get there because then we get to charge more, we get to work with the best clients, and we get to work on the services we...
