Kloudymail is now Partner with Freelance Hub!

Kloudymail is proud to announce to be a partner with Freelance Hub, the first freelancers’ community born in Brescia. The project aims to make easier the daily working life of the freelancers thanks to useful advice and directions to follow.

Freelance Hub is born from an idea of Eleonora and Francesca Valenti (Valenti04 agency) and it has been presented to the freelancers and to the journalist on 21st March 2019 at Talent Garden in Brescia. After the press conference, it has been held the first lab, “Price Quotations? How exhausting…”, a speech by Augusto Pirovano (Super Good Life).

“We have created this project because we are first and foremost freelancers who prefer to work with other freelancers – Eleonora and Francesca Valenti state – We have long felt a lack of training and networks for self-employed workers in our area. Freelancers are devoted to research and professional growth but often they struggle to find tools, answers, which are often not unique. For this reason we have decided to give life to this community: to give, thanks to experts in the field of self-employment, concrete and useful answers both to those who are already self-employed, and to those who want to become one ”.

The Manifesto: #freelancersdoitbetter!

The project is born in order to promote the self-employment culture, drawing the public opinion and world of work’s attention to the freelance as a value, debunking the myth that working as a freelance is just a way out for the ones who don’t have any other professional chance. In other words, the freelancers are taken into consideration and enhanced as such, as a highly specialized professional t0 whom give universal “surviving” tools suitable for any field and role.

E-Mail Marketing for Freelancers: the Speech by Kloudymail

Freelancers – whatever os the field in which they work – often neglect e-mail marketing. The reasons are different: lack of time, of people who can deal with it, fear that it is a useless and too expensive investment … Actually, the e-mail marketing is a precious help for freelancers: with a low cost, it allows you to communicate with customers, to keep them updated, to make them more loyal and thus activate the well-known word of mouth that allows you to acquire new contacts and ultimately new customers.

The Freelance Hub speech is aimed at making freelancers understand why they should start doing e-mail marketing and above all to make them understand how to do it best thanks to valuable and useful tips on how to structure a newsletter, how to build a database, how to write the subject and content of a newsletter, and much more.
