Freelance Business Digest
Hello there,

What is better for marketing your business: promoting yourself or promoting others?

I asked this question on LinkedIn the other day, as a couple of things made me pounder about it.

Coincidentally, I listened to two podcasts in one day about how one grew a community. One was with a person who started a network by talking about their personal problems and thus generated interest, since others recognized the same issues. The other podcast featured someone who only highlighted the success of others.

The results of the poll I mentioned earlier were very reassuring. 84% of the respondents consider talking about others as a better way to market themselves. Speaking of which, I would like to share our recent interview with Kamila Zahradnickova about her journey from freelancer to founder.

Spotlighting others may seem like an easy task, but how do you incorporate it into your own marketing? We discussed the FBC marketing principle of highlighting others and making them shine in a recent podcast with Paola Ronan.

Relationship building and showcasing others' success are extremely important in your freelance business. However, it's essential not to forget that you also need to impress Google :-D. Your online presence plays a crucial role in establishing credibility.

Come and join us tomorrow, Thursday, 8 June (18:00 CET) for a short and sweet (and yet mega powerful SEO training by the guru Chris Raulf).

We invited Chris with our partners at The Indie List to share his secrets of how to climb to the top of SEO results and gain more business. Interested? Register here.
