3. Cold and warm emails
When you’re freelancing, you’ll inevitably be reaching out to potential clients to offer your services. Other times, they’ll be the ones to send an inquiry. Regardless of the case, it’s best to have email templates prepared to avoid spending time thinking of what to say next.
For cold emails, you’ll have to experiment with different templates until you find one that works best. Make sure that it’s personalized for each prospect. Show your interest in their company and why you think you’ll be the best fit for the project. Also, don’t forget to include your CV and portfolio!
For warm emails, you should prepare template answers for frequently asked questions like “What’s your rate per hour?” or “What’s your time zone and when can you work?”
