Talent Toolbox: Succeeding with Clients

Tue, Dec 13, 2022, 9:00 AM (PST)

Our Talent Toolbox series focuses on different topics and includes interactive elements to help you grow your business on Upwork.

About this event

Join us on December 13th at 9 am PST as we continue the conversation on critical soft skills! Upon attendee requests from our last session, Upwork Event Manager and Top Rated Independent Graphic Designer Will Simpson will be delving into:

  • Identifying and utilizing client pain points to win jobs
  • Setting expectations and ‘training the client’
  • When and how to raise your rates

The information we will be discussing in this interactive session was collected from top takeaways from the successful independent professionals Will has interviewed, as well as his own experience.
