Welcome to Day 1 of my live video training extravaganza!

Beginning today (Monday June 29, 2019), I will be doing a live video training over on my Youtube channel every day this week and then sharing the replays here on the blog.

I just wrapped up Day 1’s video and OMG it was so much fun and I can’t wait for you to check it out!

This topic is something that comes up allllll the time with my clients, email newsletter subscribers and blog posts readers and I am excited to share my thoughts with you here today.

We’re talking about 5 ACTIONABLE and real things you can do if you dread working on your website.

10 reasons why you NEED to start pitching your web design/development services

Coming in HOT with a blog post that is equal parts motivation and tough love :)

We’re going to talk all about pitching your web design and development services and why it’s something you need to start doing TODAY.

There’s no doubt in my mind that by the time you reach the bottom of this blog post, I’ll have you totally convinced that pitching your services is the most effective marketing strategy, and it’s something you need to implement in your own business starting today if you want to see great results.

I am a massive advocate for taking inspired action in business. Whether you want to work with dream clients - trust me, they’re out there! - , make more money, develop a swoon-worthy portfolio, or generally get the most enjoyment out of the work you do, pitching will fast-track everything.

But I’ve got to tell you, pitchin’ ain’t easy.

Yes, pitching will get you in front of the right potential clients a heck of a lot faster than other marketing methods and is known to have a higher conversion rate… but that doesn’t mean that it’s simple or straightforward work. If it was, everyone would be doing it!

The fact of the matter is that pitching is a real skill and it requires a lot of strategy, resilience and proactive behaviour. But from my own experience, I can tell you that it pays off like you wouldn’t believe.

If you’re on the fence about pitching and wonder if it’s something you should try out, or if it could work for you, then I’m here to give you a friendly shove in the right direction. Pitching your services WILL work for you too and the fastest way to get the results you want is to simply get started.

Let’s take a look.

Alright, without further ado, I want you to meet Michelle from Perspective Studio and Patricia from ZUK Design Studio.
