About This Class

Does it feel like it’s all too much? Start a side gig. Grow your freelance biz. Learn about the market. Get yourself licensed on a jillion products. Promote your work. Sometimes it seems like the to-do list is endless…and finding new clients feels like the biggest hill to climb.

Hey, I get it.

I’m Ronnie Walter, an artist, writer and a Biz Coach for Creatives. And I know firsthand how easy it is to get overwhelmed when trying to run a creative business, especially when all we really want to do are the fun parts! Oh, wouldn’t that be nice…

We all need to add more clients. In this class I will explain, in step-by-step detail, a simple process for locating and converting clients that is systematic, progressive, and repeatable. It will help you focus your prospecting efforts and eliminate that nagging feeling that you haven’t done enough.

I call it the 5 X 5 Plan. It’s simple once you get the hang of it—and best of all—it works.

Decades of freelancing taught me that you must keep feeding your customer pipeline to be successful, and to do that you need a workable, repeatable system. You cannot reinvent the wheel every time you want to contact a new client. I developed the 5x5 process, refined it through coaching and teaching dozens of artists, and share it with you in this class. It’s the exact method I use to keep moving my creative business forward!

I invite you to take this short class to learn about the simple but effective plan you will return to again and again.

Thank you so much and if you have any questions, please let me know in the comments so I can help you!

Really loved your 5 x 5 plan. I will implement this into my time blocking ASAP -- this will be very helpful in growing my businesses (freelancing web development and local cleaning biz). Thank you :D!
Really informative and a great plan! I am always struggling with ways to keep in touch with my clients and how to find new ones, I am going to give this method a try!
Excellent class! Such a simple and approachable technique, yet to come up with something like this on your own it would take years of practice, trial and error. thanks Ronnie for saving us all a good ammount of frustration :)
