About the lecturer
Hey I’m Tom from Made by Loop, and I’ve been a full time freelancer for about 8 years or so now, I actually started freelancing back when I was in University, so I’ve been freelancing in some form for around 14 years or so now.
It’s not all been plain sailing over the years, and I’ve had to learn some things the hard way, I certainly know that freelancing isn’t easy.
That’s why with this course, I want to teach you about the importance of business processes. Now, I know what you’re thinking, I can feel your eyelids drooping at the sound of the business speak… but trust me, having the right procedures in place for freelancing and running your own business can make a world of difference and save so many headaches down the line.
So, in this course we’re going to cover some procedures and processes that help throughout the duration of a motion design project, from initial contact, to invoicing, and then right up to sign-off and sending the files over. I'll also cover the processes I use for chasing payments when clients don't pay on time, and how to help stop this from happening in the first place.
These are the processes I use in my day to day freelance life, and they’ve saved me a lot of time, and hassle over the years, so hopefully you’ll benefit from implementing some too.
