Hey it's one thing to be well skilled in something. It's another thing to have good customer service skills. To be able to communicate well with people and your clients. To even have some fairly good life skills in general. But having great communication skills and being able to understand your buyers requirements and whims as well as establish a long lasting working partnership by delivering excellent quality work and customer service is the winning formula to being successful and getting hired again and again.
It sounds brutal to say it, but without having good communication skills, without good customer service skills. You will find it hard to get hired and build regular repeat buyers. So you may have some learning to do. I'm talking about your people skills, your life skills and your customer service skills.
How will you react when a client flips out on you or rages over something that is beyond your control? How will you react to abusive language and swearing and being called names not safe-for-work enough to repeat here? Are you thick skinned and cool/level headed enough to take it and know how to handle it like a true pro?
But more than this you may have to learn how to sell yourself as well! Learn how to send great killer emails and write excellent service pages and landing pages and how to come up with the perfect pitch to people looking for your skills on all the freelance sites and social media sites etc.
Plus when you start taking orders and things start picking up for you. And you are getting more sales than you can really manage, handle and complete. Then you may find yourself working flat out and misplacing things or not know who's order you should be working on and who's you need to pay the most attention to etc.
Questions to ask yourself then are;
Do you have what it takes to work your way through that efficiently?
Or are you the type that buckles under a lot of work and pressure?
