Spring cleaning

  1. 1. The Super Spring Cleaning Guide for your Freelance Business
  2. 2. Spring cleaning isn't just for attics and toilets! Let us help you freshen up that freelance business with a good, old fashioned, spring clean. We’re here with a handy little guide for spring cleaning your freelance business.
  3. 3. Go paperless. Some of the ways you can do this include utilizing a digital signature service for any legally binding documents, opting for email billing and invoicing, and scanning documents for digital storage. Going paperless is good for the environment, your office, and your sanity.
  4. 4. Ditch your headache clients. The ones whose payments don’t seem to be worth the work and stress they’re putting you through. It’s not going to be a pleasant conversation, and you’ll need to be level-headed and polite… but the freedom to work with clients and projects that are fulfilling and enjoyable is worth a couple of uncomfortable emails or phone calls.
  5. 5. Reevaluate your systems. Some questions you might ask yourself are: • How is your communication process with clients? Is it effective for both parties? • What about your expense-tracking? Are you even tracking your business expenses? • Think about your tax experience this year. How could you have made it smoother? • Is your creative process still working, or can you implement some new techniques? • Did you struggle with distraction and time management? • Are there any tools that will help your freelance business be more effective? • Do you need to ramp up your marketing? • Are there any conferences you’d like to attend? • Are you scheduling meetings in a way that works well for you?
  6. 6. Cull your electronic clutter. Take time to look over your smartphone, and get rid of apps that are too distracting or gathering digital cobwebs. Going through your SaaS subscriptions and terminating any that you don’t fully use can save you hundreds of dollars a year… unroll.me is a super-simple, super-effective way to weed through promotional subscriptions you no long care about, and give your email a quick spring clean.
  7. 7. Literally clean your office. Okay, I know I started out saying that this wasn’t going to be about actual cleaning, but sometimes a little once-over with a trash can and a dust rag can do miracles for your work environment. Go through that giant pile of papers and add a recycling bin to your office… move your desk to the sunny side of the room… Sometimes changing things up is just the trick you need to refresh your motivation and outlook.
  8. 8. Update the face of your freelance business. You should also make sure your social profiles are up-to-date and accurate. Your portfolio definitely deserves some attention, as well. Make sure you’ve added any recent projects, and weed out any previous work that no longer represents your creative values or the direction in which your freelance business is heading.
  9. 9. Re-inspect your business foundations. A whole lot of things can happen within a year. In the span of 12 months, you can take on significantly more clients, become certified in a new specialty, and even meet people who change your entire outlook on freelancing. Take a few hours to sit down with your business plan and reevaluate your goals. Let yourself explore these changes and possibilities, and create a revised plan that accurately represents where you are now.
