Here's how Mariana pitched and booked $6,700 worth of her services in just 4 days!

GATHER ROUND HUNNIS because I’ve got some amazing news to share with you!

If you’ve been following this space or keeping up with me on Instagram, you might remember that I recently launched Pitching your Web Design & Development Services. It’s a digital product that teaches web designers & developers how to pitch their services through a 22-page How-To Guide, customizable email templates, and a tracker spreadsheet to organize their pitch process.

It’s been flying of the figurative shelves since then and I have been THRILLED to hear all the (seriously impressive) results that are already rolling in! Nothing makes me happier than people purchasing my products and getting fantastic results from them. I work very hard to create high quality, useful resources for my audience (through both free and paid content) and when this particular email landed in my inbox, I nearly fell off my chair with excitement.

So, I’m going to take a moment to proudly share Mariana’s story because her results truly blew me away and I’m bursting with pride! If she can do it, so can you.

5 common myths about pitching your web design/development services

I’ve been thinking about pitching your services as a web designer/developer a lot lately.

Pitching is a topic that has come up many times in conversations as of late, whether it’s with my clients, my email newsletter subscribers, or even with my peers and fellow established web designers/developers. It seems to be on everyone’s mind!

If you’ve been following me and my business for a while, you might already know that I attribute my initial success and subsequent growth to pitching my services. Pitching is something I did to find clients, book out my calendar, take on the type of projects I wanted to do, and generally build up my experience and skills. It helped me leapfrog forward too and I know that I was able to achieve way more in a much shorter period of time because I took action and pitched my little heart out.

Was it easy or comfortable? Heck no! At the start, I pretty much hated pitching. The rejection stung and I felt like I was bothering people anytime I sent out a pitch email.

But do you know what? I kept with it, refined my strategy and started seeing amazing results from my pitches.

I was able to book loads more discovery calls which turned into secured web design/development projects. I started making good money. I was able to fill out my calendar in advance. My portfolio became more refined and targeted towards my ideal clients and audience/niche, which then made it even easier to sell my services in the future.

I am a HUGE fan of pitching because I know firsthand how well it works.

Which is why in this blog post, I want to address 5 of the most common myths or misconceptions I hear about pitching your services as a web designer/developer.

Most of these myths are based in fear, and I want to show you how powerful it can be to push past any awkwardness or hesitations you might have around pitching, because the results are totally worth it.

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.

Guide to pitching your web design/development services - new digital product is live!

In my humble opinion, pitching your services is the BEST way to launch and grow your web design/development business.

Pitching is something that differentiated me from many of my fellow web designers/developers, particularly those who specialize in custom Squarespace websites, and as a result I’ve received SO many requests for advice or tips. People want to try pitching out and see how it might work for their own business, but many of them don’t know where to start. They know that similar results are likely but beyond that, it’s not something many other people are talking about.

I’m thrilled to announce that my GUIDE TO PITCHING YOUR WEB DESIGN/DEVELOPMENT SERVICES is now live!
