Every creative freelancer knows that before you can create stuff for a client, you have to FIND a client.
Many of us spend more time pursuing projects and chasing down leads than we spend actually doing the work.
Is there a way to network smarter? How can you start selling more work and earning more money?
Don’t Miss our Next Atlanta Freelance Forum Meeting
At our next meeting of the Freelance Forum, we’ll hear from a local networking expert—someone who understands that when building a business, it’s not what you know, or who you know, but WHO KNOWS YOU.
OUR EXPERT PRESENTER: Corey “NetworKing” Moore
Corey encourages entrepreneurs and sales professionals to increase sales through face-to-face networking. He’s even created a company and mobile app—ProNetworker—that helps people like us find local business meet-ups, networking events, expos, seminars and the like.
At our September event, Corey will talk about CLOSING THE SALE: How to Follow Up with Clients and Earn More Business. He understands that handing out a business card isn’t the end of the sales process—it’s only the beginning.

No atmospheric pressure here! We network and socialize over sandwiches, spreads or pizza, catch up with new and old friends and introduce ourselves to first-time or frequent guests. Then we settle in for the night’s program and its follow-up Q&A.
Our programs always focus on running a creative business more successfully, with topics that address issues like fees, taxes, law, marketing, selling, interpersonal skills, business organization, technology and more. All to help you work smarter, faster, more efficiently and more profitably. So whether you’re just starting out or you’ve been at this for a while, you get no-fluff information tailored to your needs.
So join us for a meeting. Bring your questions. Hear that hot tip or horror story. And of course, share your own!
