Next Meeting: June 10
Topic: Pivot Your Business Roundtable
Join Freelance Austin virtually on Wednesday, June 10 from 12pm-1:30pm as we talk about how to pivot your business in a post pandemic world. We will send you an email with the link to join us via Zoom when you register.
The pandemic has hit the freelance community hard. Many of us lost business when clients had to shutter their doors. The marketplace will remain in flux even as businesses begin to reopen. A dynamic marketplace offers many opportunities. This is a time to consider how you can pivot your business to adapt to the “next normal.” The pivot is a time-honored way of changing product, target market, direction or delivery to fulfill an opportunity you see. It takes advantage of leverage, demand and innovation to create something new for the consumer and the business owners.
How can you as a freelancer change product?
Can you find an undreamed-of market in need of your skills?
What is the direction you wanted to go, before your customers led you?
How could you deliver your product in a more efficient or exciting manner?
We’ll listen to your stories of pivots, listen to other companies’ stories of pivoting during the coronavirus and brainstorm ways to pivot your business. Bring your ideas, questions and “what ifs?” All ideas will be entertained.
