Your website is your best salesperson — working for you 24/7

As 2020 comes to an end, I can only say one thing: What a year it was!

As a host and organiser of Language Professionals’ Networking Event, I talked to hundreds of fellow language service providers this year. For some of them, work has completely dried up. Others have been thriving.

From what I can see, there’s one common thing among those who are thriving: They have a website that serves them well.

In my very first podcast episode, I talk about why having your own website is essential to be able to make a living as a freelance language service provider.

In this episode, I share my story of how I became an independent language teacher and at what point I decided that it was time to set up a website.

I explain why I didn’t want to outsource my online presence to a marketing agency. Why I wanted to learn how to do it myself.

Listen to the episode here:

Once you’ve had a chance to listen, I’d love to know.
