About Freelancer Support

As the world moves increasingly towards a ‘gig’ economy with a massive growth in freelancing (and increased competition),  Freelancer Support is designed to help freelancers everywhere to attract new, and higher-calibre clients.

Our aim is to be the ‘home’ for the world’s most professional freelancers who actively help each other within this global community. 

People with jobs don’t always ‘get’ what being freelance is really like. We do!

Below, Roy tells the background story to how this all came about back in 1997.

Reasons to Join Freelancer Support

Here, we understand what it’s like to be you. For some, self-employment is a choice, for others it’s a financial necessity. Either way, freelancing can be the ideal solution to earn a little (or a lot) more. To follow your true passions. Or simply to scale back on your hours so you can enjoy a more active non-work life. And, when you know how, freelancing is actually more secure than being in a full-time job these days.

For new freelancers as well as battle-weary ones, this online resource includes just about everything you need to learn in order to attract clients who are prepared to pay your full fees. 

This online resource has a clear focus: to help you attract more business, with better clients, so you can earn more. It is practical and is based on the REAL world of freelancing in this increasingly competitive and cash-strapped economic environment.

If you are a typical freelancer, you are probably sceptical about whether such a course would be worth your time and the cost. We fully understand that. So, think of it as practical support when you most need it, not as a ‘training course’ (even though it has been organised that way).

Traditional classroom training costs freelancers double: the course fee, PLUS the fees you lose while you attend! Because this is online, help and support is available whenever you are!

Who will benefit most from joining

  • Anyone who is looking to go full or part-time as a freelancer. Whether that is to earn a living, or just to supplement their income. 
  • Freelancers aspiring to become an ‘elite’ freelancer in their field of expertise.
  • Freelancers who are extremely good at what they ‘do’, but struggle when it comes to finding clients or ‘hate’ the idea of selling themselves!
  • Battle-weary, long-term freelancers who recognise they need some fresh ideas to re-invigorate them and refresh their ‘tired’ client base.
  • People over 50, or approaching 50 and are exploring the viability of a self-employed freelance future. Perhaps because you want to leave your current employer, are being made redundant, or want to build a part-time freelance practice to improve your work/life balance. Or you want your work to fit in with family commitments.
  • Retired individuals who want a part-time second income.

 Are you any of those people? If so, get in touch.

Testimonials for the original one-day seminar

by freelancers just like you

Your seminar was, without doubt, the best, the most useful and relevant short course I’ve ever had the good fortune to attend.. Thank you so much for sharing all those comprehensive, practical and effective ideas with me! I am putting what I learned into immediate effect. I’ve been enthusing widely … I want everyone to be in on them!

Mitch de Faria

… a must for anyone who is a freelance or is thinking of becoming one. You will realise that all your doubts and concerns are shared by everyone else, and come away with so many good ideas, that you will never find yourself stuck down a blind alley again! I have been freelancing (reasonably) successfully for seven years … Too many courses are built on theory, but you know where you are with Roy as he has been there himself. No hype, no bullshit, but sometimes a little close for comfort! Word of mouth recommendation is meant to be the most effective form of advertising. I am encouraging every freelance I know to book on Roy’s next seminar as a matter of urgency!

Imogen Matthews

Three months after attending … I have achieved some remarkable results from following the marketing strategies you revealed ….Basically my commissioned work has trebled. I now find myself in the enviable position amongst my fellow Photo Journalists of being constantly booked with quality well paying on-going work. Thank you so much. Your well researched marketing gems are exactly what talented, yet impoverished Photo Journalists need to turn their freelance careers around.

Paul McBride

I am writing to say how much I enjoyed the course. Enjoyment is one thing – but I really felt that I got an enormous amount out of the day on all levels…the actual day was packed full of ‘goodies’. I have been a freelancer for almost 12 years….. After attending the course I found myself raring to go and really looking forward to finding new clients and catching up with previous customers. I do not usually write letters like this – I often mean to after a particularly good course but never get around to it. See the difference attending your course has made! I am sure that prospective freelancers would benefit enormously by attending one of your courses.

Annetta Powell

Excellent. Inspirational! Condensed what seems a complicated and daunting and sometimes depressing topic into a simple, systematic and positive experience.

David Wood

I have to say that it was possibly the most useful course I have been on for some time – it certainly gave me confidence as I begin a freelance career.

Paul Heinrich

Roy Sheppard has refined a multi-purpose tool-kit of ideas, skills and systems which are essential to the freelancer. … very well balanced and catered for the emotionally battered as well as the hardened battlers”

Gordon Loncaster

It was a great opportunity to meet like-minded people and to discuss the problems (and potential problems) that we all commonly have. Your ideas will, I’m sure prove immensely useful (as well as profitable) in the future.

Julie Buck

I was very impressed by the whole day and thought your approach to the audience and the subject was very effective. You achieved this wonderful blend between giving lots of practical advice whilst making it practically feasible.

Peter Morris

Being more focussed and professional, with clear goals, will help me be more positive about the future. For me, the most concrete result from attending the seminar has been to re-focus attention on the need to look again at my direction and USP.
