It doesn’t matter if you are the kind of freelancer that are working from gig to gig or if you do have an international brand name… All of us are having a fantasy: landing the Dream Client.

So, here is a couple of tips of how to turn a Dream Client into reality:

Start independently

The very first step to define what your dream client is, you need to be specific.

Since this is just imaginary, don’t be afraid to indulge in completely unrealistic speculations.

For instance, if your ideal job involves “no meetings, lots of volleyball games”, you may be looking for an offsite, largely independent freelance gig in a company that encourage creativity.

Identify what you love and hate about freelancing, you will not find a client that will match them all of your parameters, but at least you are going to make sure that you are going to select the best clients for you.

Refine your tools

Make sure to update your portfolio with the best work you have done, and that reflect the work you want to do.

Eliminate those materials that doesn’t interest you, and focus of the work that does.

Look around

Start talking with other freelancers, be active in social media and networks.

Be clear about what you are looking for, but open to new opportunities… You cream client may come in a slightly different form than you envisioned.
