Thanks, Abbi for this webinar, it's really helpful to make my mind. Being a WordPress developer and VA do you think I can choose WordPress only for my top skill? As you know in upwork their are soo many WordPress developers are working so it's really hard to get job. Upwork already stop approving new WP profiles. Do you think in the current environment is it a good idea to choose this skill or I have to change my skill set?
I don't think that you need to change your skill, but I think you should get more specific. Instead of being a general WP dev and VA, think about the kind of work that you most enjoy, the clients you most love working with, and what you can provide.
For example, the person who created my site specializes in creating sites that contain a library of elements so that I can now go in and create new landing pages and sales pages on my own, without extra help.
I also pay someone who handles monthly maintenance of my WP site -- he makes sure my plugins are always updated, my site is backed up, when I had a malware issue, he fixed it in moments, etc.
Create a specialized WP service for your clients.
Thanks for all those handy tips. Managing the work-life balance professionally also the communication with clients is the uber-important thing every freelancer need to focus on. I completely agree with you.
I have tried copywriting before through Upwork but felt the prices offered were always too low. How long had you been writing for before you upped your prices? How many months had you been writing before you could survive alone? Thanks
