While list building is commonly associated with offer owners.
It doesn’t mean freelancers can’t use it to grow.
The idea behind list building is to gather your ideal audience in one place so you can add value to them and present your offer to people who actually want it.
For freelancers, here's what I've seen of the top people...
1. Invite prospects to their list
2. Send valuable emails.
3. Share recent wins (even sneak in some humblebragging from time to time)
4. Give an offer to work with them.
I’ve heard of others who simply type a simple email announcing a free slot and get booked in minutes.
Clients on demand.
They'll be the one lining up and begging you to work with them.
I’m not saying this is going to be true for everyone.
However, what I can say for certain is you can’t win the game if you never play.
And the list is your ticket in.
