A client wants to work with you! Now the ball is on your court to win the project. 💪

Respond to the request

You have 48 hours to respond to a request. You can either send a message, send a quote, or decline the request. This will ensure you keep your response rate to 100%. If you accept, you will be able to send an offer to the client. If you decline, you will be asked to provide a reason.

Engage with the client

Clients have spent some time researching freelancers to contact. If you received a request, this means you're in their top 5 and they want to see you engaged with their project. You can do this by sending a personal message establishing rapport, asking some precise follow-up questions and genuinely showing interest in the book or project.
