I’m just starting out and my current clients aren’t paying. How can I convert them to paying customers?

Ask for the money.

Pick a number that you find is the value of the work that you perform and just ask.

Most people when receiving free work aren’t going to ask, “Hey… when are you going to start charging me?” They’ll ride that free train all the way home if you let them.

How much money have you saved them… or better yet, how much money have your earned for them?

When you can site results of your work and price yourself as a value compared to those results, it should be an easy ask. If they say no, they it’s not like you’re losing out on any revenue as they weren’t paying you in the first place.

If they are your friends, they should understand that you need to make a living.
